This 100 year old Victorian home has a refined interior, and is fully furnished for one person or a couple. The main floor includes an enclosed porch, a living room, dining room, wine tasting room with wet bar & library, a country kitchen, and full bathroom with shower. The upstairs is a Jack & Jill design (one bedroom plus an extra sleeping or meditation room) and a full bath with tub. A front load washer & dryer are available in the basement, plus an additional shower, toilet, & room for storage if a longer term stay is desired. This is the perfect quiet get away to host an intimate family gathering or a place to stay while you visit local family or friends. It feels like a home away from home which is lovingly cared for.
Summer Activities: Cornstock, Band concerts, Spirit of Peoria River Boat Cruises, & a walk or drive along Grandview Drive showcase some of our midwest attractions. Don't forget to tour the Caterpillar & Art Museum and down town farmer's market!

Owner pays hotel tax for 3 night stays and longer.
Rental cost for a 2 night stay = $300 for 2 weekdays + $42 tax (14%)=$342.

The tax will be taken by check when renters first arrive at the property (or from deposit).

Upon occasion the exit cleaning fee is waived.
A service fee charged by VRBO is added to all VRBO payments, a charge related to online web site fees & services.
