Location

Access Road Conditions: Backing in must be done from the road and can be tricky at times, but is more than fine. Evening times will be a bit more tricky for backing up as we live on a main road close to historic downtown. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: All parking is done in the driveway. The trailer and tow vehicle will fit in one spot together. Driveway has a very slight slant but nothing extreme.

    Worked in Chicago for the week and needed a safe place to park. Derek and Amy were hospitable and generous with their time, space and information about their charming community. They had good stable power and even had dump access! We would definitely stay there again when we’re back in the area!

    Derek made my stay for 2 nights so easy. The 15a cord and water hose was in plain sight. Driveway is paved and level. We met briefly for hellos and exchange of local info. It was just too cold to hang out and visit. Their house is between a fairly busy road and the railroad tracks but neither one seemed to bother me. I would stay again, Thank you!!

    Though we did not get to meet our hosts in person, they were very communicative via message and everything was as described. There is road noise, (though not too crazy overnight) and the driveway opens onto a pretty frequently trafficked street, but we had no problem backing out in the morning.
