Greetings, and thanks for checking out our AirBnb listing! Spend some time in the Fox Valley just a little outside of town. We live in an unincorporated area of Saint Charles known as Valley View. We're about a mile east of the big bend in the Fox river, 3 miles north of the main town.

Our family owns and lives in this house. We are offering the cozy lower level; a 325 square foot space.

El alojamiento
COVID INFO: By now we're all familiar with this virus. We're keeping our space up and running, but if we sadly feel the need to close, we will. If we end up having to cancel your booking, you will get a full refund. I've been taking extra care to keep the space sanitary. The room is on the lower level of the house, mostly separate from the family. Guests have the option of going in and out through the sliding door, if you would like to avoid any and all contact with others. Please feel free to message us if you have any concerns!

Our place is located in an unincorporated neighborhood 3.5 miles north of vibrant downtown St. Charles, location of the famous Arcada Theater and Hotel Baker. The Q Center of Saint Charles is just 2 miles up the road. The Kane County Fairgrounds is about 6 miles away. The city of Chicago is about an hour drive.

We just put up six adjustable speed metal fans on the ceiling above the king bed, controlled by a panel conveniently located next to the bed with separate adjustments for the left side versus the right side. Why a hexagon of fans? Many people like myself prefer subtle air flow while they sleep to cool their feet and keep the oxygen flowing throughout the room. But most importantly, it's something I've never seen before and it was fun to hook up.

Please be aware that our house is in an unincorporated area of St. Charles, and being 4 miles from town you may occasionally hear fireworks from neighboring residents in the summer. We are, however, lucky enough to still have city water.

Are you flying here? We're 31 miles from O'Hare airport, and 47 miles from Midway airport.

Our space is newly painted and carpeted. Enjoy a king bed with an authentic barn wood headboard plus a fold-out futon for additional sleep space. Snuggle up under the giant quilt and enjoy all the Netflix you can watch on a 43 inch screen. It gets dark here at night, so feel free to turn on the lanterns in the headboard or the twinkly Christmas lights around the room. We enjoyed putting this room together and it gave us a chance to exercise our creativity by building the bed and creating most of the artwork on the walls, either by photographing or painting.

We provide a coffee maker with coffee, tea, and hot chocolate for you to enjoy. There's a mini fridge to hold the leftovers from your evening out, and a microwave to heat them up. We also provide bottle water and microwave popcorn. A washer and dryer are right next to the guest room - we prefer to limit the use of the washer and dryer to guests that are staying at least 3 nights.



About Us:

We are a family of four; my wife and I, and two girls ages 11 and 7, and we do live in the house. Cindy and I both grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and lived a few miles north in Elgin for 10 years. After years of admiring the Valley View area of St. Charles, we bought a house here summer of 2017. Our kids love when families with children come to stay with us, so if you have children, this might be the place for you!

Allergy alert: We also have two cats but they are not allowed in the lower level.

Within 5 minutes:

50-acre Riverbend Community Park is about one block north and contains basketball and tennis courts, baseball fields, a skate park, dog run area, and playground. Within about a 1 mile radius, you’ll find the steep maple and oak lined bluffs of Tekakwitha Woods, and one of Al Capone’s former speakeasies, hidden away down next to the Fox River. Grab your fishing poles, and go fishing at a quiet park, dare to take a ride along the sinking street that hugs the big bend of the river, or hop on the scenic bike path that follows the river 15 miles north and 20 miles south of St. Charles. Got a boat? The area also has boat launching spots.

Within 10 minutes:

Drive down the tree lined hills of route 25 to Illinois’ tri-cities (St. Charles, Geneva, Batavia), a cluster of three quaint and historic towns along the Fox River with shopping, dining, and charming river walks. Take an afternoon to visit the Fabyan windmill in Geneva, see a show at the Arcada Theater in downtown St. Charles, or cross the river and see the 8-foot cascading waterfall hidden in the forest preserve.

Within 30 minutes:

Drive 30 minutes to O’Hare Airport, Schaumburg’s Woodfield Mall, Ikea, Sears Center Arena, Fermie Lab, Paramount Theater, Arlington Race Track

Within 1 Hour:

Dónde vas a estar

St. Charles, Illinois, Estados Unidos

The house is in an unincorporated neighborhood north of St. Charles. Our house is the one split level house on a long street with no sidewalks of little ranch houses. About a half mile south down route 25, you'll start to see the streets that branch off to the million dollar houses. Our neighborhood is more on the opposite end of the spectrum, but quiet and peaceful if you ask me.

Each morning, my girls walk to the elementary school about a half mile north. The school is just past a 50 acre park and across the street from a 65 acre woods, and Al Capone's former "hideaway", now defunct steakhouse sits about a mile away, down by the big bend in the river.

I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and recently bought our house here in St. Charles, IL. On a visit to the then Al Capone's Hideaway and Steakhouse shortly after Cindy and I were married, we were amazed at just how hidden away the restaurant was and we fell in love with the area. We finally bought our house here near the big bend in the Fox River in 2017. I met my wife Cindy when we were freshmen in high school and I can't live without her. It took some years for the stars to all align but we've been married 10 years now and have two girls of our own. I work full time as test technician at National Technical Systems, and Cindy has a seasonal job at Santa's Village, a local amusement park. We are looking to pursue real estate in our area as a new source of income. We are excited to share the tranquility and charm of this part of the Fox Valley, right here in Chicago's backyard. I also want to get a go kart and build a tree house. If I could combine all this into some kind of Airbnb experience, I'd have it made in the shade. When I'm not busy making supper for my girls or trying to find a way to become financial free, you'll probably find me playing my drums down in the basement. For the last 15 years, I have a hard time relaxing if I haven't played my drums in a couple days.

My wife and I are in our thirties. We aren't exactly social butterflies by nature (unlike our 11 year old daughter), but we love hosting on AirBnb. Whichever one of us is home, just let us know what you need and we'll do our best to figure it out for you! Or you can always send us a text.
