Perfect if you need a place to call home away from home for a few nights, a week, or longer. Located in a safe, quiet, suburb of Chicago, Crystal Lake. Easy access to downtown Chicago. There are many local lakes, beaches, bike trails, golf courses and more close by for your enjoyment. Welcome to our home!
This is a very nice upstairs bedroom. The room has a vaulted ceiling and lots of natural light. A large closet, vanity, and dresser are available to you for storage of your clothes. The vanity with a mirror and chair can also be used as a desk. The bathroom is right across the hallway with a double sink and tub/shower. There is a second half bath off of the kitchen that will be available for your use as well. This is a large home with 6 bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms.
Your room with fresh linens, a full bathroom and a half bathroom, and a small space in the refrigerator. You are welcome to store some foods in the refrigerator, but I prefer that you do not cook meals. There is high speed wifi which you will have access to. There is a deck in the back yard with patio furniture which you are welcome to enjoy. There is also a TV and sitting area in the lower level with a leather couch, chair, and ottoman. You are welcome to use this area for watching TV and Netflix, or reading. Please use this area rather than the formal living room. Thank you.
I will personally greet you or have someone else in the house greet you and make sure you are acquainted with the operations of the home. I will be available to provide information about our local city as well as the city of Chicago. I am usually just a telephone call away.
This is a family orientated home and the atmosphere here is calm and quiet. No activity that will interfere with another person's stay here is acceptable. I am usually available by cell phone or by sending a text. I keep my home clean and would appreciate it if you would please leave it as clean as you found it.
Please do not wear your shoes in the house. Either leave them outside on the porch or in the foyer.
The hot water setting is set to hot, so beware when the water reaches the tap it could be pretty hot. BE SURE TO LET OTHER PEOPLE IN THE HOUSE KNOW IF YOU WILL BE IN THE SHOWER.... (if possible). If someone runs the water (or flushes the toilet) watch out, the water temp will be affected. So be forewarned. Better to advise the household when you want to shower. :-0 Also, I would prefer if you wash the few dishes that you may use, rather than put them in the dishwasher. There will always be dish soap available. You may have to wait a minute for the water at the kitchen faucet to reach a warm temperature, be aware that it will get HOT.
This is a family home setting, please respect all who enter and of course our home.
No smoking please.
Take you shoes off at the door, do not wear your shoes in the house.
Use of the kitchen is for warming food in the microwave. Please clean up after yourself.
There is an extra refrigerator in the garage for your use, if you have food that needs refrigeration.
Only registered guests are allowed.
These rules are for everyone's safety and peace of mind.
