My family + I live in a 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath home, with a fully finished basement. It is walking distance from downtown Champaign. Short term, and long term, furnished stay is possibly available.
Our house is an Arts + Craft bungalow built in 1920 w/ all hardwood flooring on a spacious double lot. Outdoor kitchen with back patio, front porch, private parking, and close to shopping off I-74 in a quiet neighborhood.
If you are traveling with children or infants, we have toys, a Pack 'N Play, a high chair and other necessities for the littles when on the road.
Our home has all original hardwood flooring; a wood-burning fireplace; secluded backyard with a privacy fence on a double lot; HE washer + dryer; a well equipped, foodie-friendly kitchen; 1.5 bathrooms (full bathroom upstairs + half on the 1st floor); a long driveway for off-street parking and parking available directly on the street in front of the house; a back patio covered dining space set-up with a BBQ and a smoker; and we are kid-friendly. We had our wedding in our backyard with 225 guests in attendance — so, it is quite spacious.
Home: The house is situated directly off Prospect Avenue near the I-74 exit ramp. But, without much street noise. The photos are pretty much in the order of which our house flows — so please have a look.
Upstairs: The upstairs is quiet and nicely insulated from downstairs sounds when the French doors in the living room are closed. It houses 3 bedrooms and 1 full bath.
Bedrooms: There are three upstairs bedrooms with a full bathroom directly next to the rooms. Bedroom 1 is the south room and is our son's bedroom with a twin bed with a 6" thick gel foam mattress, dresser, books, and toys. Bedroom 2 is the north guest room and is furnished with a desk and chair, a queen-sized plush top mattress, a crib (which can be converted to toddler bed), books, and a small veranda. Bedroom 3 is the east guest room and is furnished with a brand new, organic Nest Bedding king-sized mattress. Each of the bedroom's closets will be inaccessible to guests. The common space downstairs could also sleep an additional sixth guest on the couch or our full sized air mattress.
Basement: Has a high-efficiency washer + dryer. Also a, small playspace for children.
Living room: The common space could also sleep an additional sixth guest on the couch or our full sized air mattress.
If you rent the entire house, it is all yours.

If there is an emergency, please call 911. We will also have family and friends on standby in case there is a situation needing attention at the home.
We do have a dog. She WILL NOT be there during your stay, but some of her hair + dander is probably in the air. So, this might not be the house for you if you have any allergies. Other animals/pets are STRICTLY NOT allowed.
Our house was also built in 1920 — it is almost 100 years old. Parts of it are delicate and we've been making renovations as we've lived here for the past ten years.
We have a strict policy against indoor smoking of any kind and NO pets. Smoking on the front porch or back patio is fine as we do have an outdoor ashtray. We just ask that you keep the cigarette butts in there and nowhere else.
Please lock the exterior doors behind you when coming and going — for your safety and for the home's security.
Please be considerate and leave the place in similar condition to the way you found it. We are in a residential neighborhood — we ask that you respect our property + our neighbors.
If anything breaks, please let us know. Mistakes happen, but we prefer to avoid surprises.
