We had a great time!! The area is clean, the neighborhood is quiet and very pleasant. We went as a family of 5 to visit my daughter who was in classes at the Naval Base in Great Lakes. It is a 20 min drive to the base taking the toll roads $1.90 which I recommend because it takes 30 min of your travel. Make sure to see change (no pennies) in the care at all times. Otherwise you will go through small towns with a thousand lights and it can take as much as an hour to get there. The house is very comfortable, beds soft, clean rooms newly remodeled on the inside. We stayed in for dinner most evenings to cook all of my daughters favorite foods. We watched netflx, played games and had such a great visit. We went to Mischegan Beach which is close to the base about 30 min drive from house. It was a great time had no idea they had such beautiful water in Illinois... :) On day we took the Train into town had dinner and saw a few of the sights which was a great treat for us all. I would definitely go stay in this charming house again on my next trip to see my daughter.
