We are located in Zion IL, 45 miles north of Chicago and 45 miles south of Milwaukee, 6 miles from the highway. Our house is south of 9th St! Some maps take you too far north. We have 2 acres with a playground that you are welcome to use. Suggested Local Attractions:Visit Chicago one day and Milwaukee the next, plus Six Flags Great America is only 20 minutes from us. There are a few free Lake Michigan beaches within 15 minutes. We love the Mitchell Park Domes (3 biomes) and Discovery World in Milwaukee.

    Sarah and her husband were very welcoming. They have a long driveway which was great. Good communication. Thanks so much!

    A kind host. The driveway requires either backing in or out onto a busy two lane road. Stopping traffic may be needed, so it is a bit of a hassle.

    Once we found the address the parking was good and Sahara was a great host. When coming from the north off 90/94 exit 1A right on Kenosha Road go past stop sign (9th st) house is 2nd on left. Very hard to read house number from road. Will do again
