Some exceptions made for "support" pets. Every guest has different needs or must-haves, and I would like to know BEFORE booking a room (if Instant Book is on) about your pet situation.

Same goes for the non-normative reservations such as minors wanting to stay. Let me know beforehand. I may request parent or guardian approval.

The home was very accessible from the main road and close to many restaurants and stores. The bathroom is shared, but that was included in the description, so there were no surprises. Felt clean and everything was well-prepared for us. Ron and his wife were very friendly.

Unfortunately, I was unable to stay at Ron's place due to unforeseen events. He was really helpful and attentive while I was booking my stay. He responded quickly, and made sure all my questions were answered and that I was well informed.

Thanks, Geraldine. Very sorry things didn't work out. Maybe there will be a next time! Best wishes...

I woke up one morning at 6am to Ron and his (girlfriend?) arguing. This went on, loudly for two hours. I left a day early. I wouldn't even mention it, however, in a retort I was told I "overheard her getting my attention" and "voices carry". Come on, it was two hours, I could hear every word. Things were being slammed around. Based on that reply and the way you argued, Ron clearly doesn't see himself as someone who can be wrong. Probably not a good situation to be around.

Well, all I can say is I was attempting to make a somewhat cringe-worthy attempt at a facetious explanation in a message to the guest after-the-fact about the horrible verbal spat that my wife and I were having once the interpersonal storm clouds had passed and I saw that the guest had left after three days. This obviously is one of the pitfalls of opening up one's "private" home to accommodate public guests. I will avoid any judgment on who was right or wrong or one's seeming unwillingness to admit being wrong between my wife and I. (As in most arguments, it's hard to remember what it was about once it's over and each person forgives the other's so-called insolence or brattiness.) Not to excuse my and my wife's bad behavior, but I'm guessing that most persons who have been in a relationship could empathize with those errant moments of capricious and cataclysmic verbal darts that can get thrown. Like a micro-burst, the wind can kick up in seconds and create turbulence that can last an hour or more. (I didn't think ours lasted two hours as the guest claims, but then I didn't have my stopwatch open either.) This surreal synopsis (that I just read) of what HAD been a mutually pleasant stay for the above guest and my wife and I was the first such episode in the past year of being an Airbnb host---which also has been the first year of our marriage---and though I regret it occurred, I cannot hit delete and remove it from my life just as I cannot (regrettably) erase the guest's account of it from this web page. I will, however, click and lick my digital wounds and carry on as the genial and generous hosts my wife and I strive to be. We have succeeded in doing just that by the number of overwhelmingly positive reviews written by others about us. Needless to say, my wife and I embrace the sharing economy created by platforms such as Airbnb, but we won't be welcoming the disarmingly candid OVER "sharing" guest back into our home ever again. I can only hope an audiotape isn't released as a followup podcast entitled: How to Argue Like a Dumb Ass Fool, which actually would be a catchy title. ;-)

Ron was friendly, flexible, considerate, and responded quickly to all my messages before and during my stay. The room is comfortable, with the bathroom just a few steps away. And their dog is super friendly, too. The location is hard to beat if you're visiting Six Flags, and there are a lot of stores and restaurants nearby. Just a heads-up: the driveway into their little community is hard to spot, especially at night, so make sure you have good directions or keep a sharp eye out for it. (I had to look for the speed limit sign, which was next to the driveway and much easier to see.)

Can't beat the value, the location close to shopping, food, and the workplace I was visiting. Ron and his family were gracious hosts, giving me the freedom to go to work early, and have long work days. I'm grateful for their hospitality.

It was great staying at Jon's place, it is located in a quiet neighborhood but not from Gurnee malls. Check in was breeze, and Jon's a great communicator. I would highly recommend.

Thanks Jay! I know you meant "not far from Gurnee [Mills mall]," right? {Also, my middle name is Jay, so you must have been thinking of that when you typed Jon instead of Ron.} I don't mind one bit ... In fact for a while in college I called myself Jayron! lol Hope you book your stay here next time in Chicago area. Best wishes for you and your lovely family.

Down-to-earth respectful kind of guy married in May 2015 to Olga: a beautiful, loving Chadian woman who speaks fluent French, Sar (and a few other central African dialects), but likes to stay off social media sites for the most part.

Together, we make sure to provide you a restful place that exceeds your expectations and gives you a pleasant, semi-private lodging (we live here too, after all) for a fraction of what you'd pay a stone's throw away.

I like to read (fiction and nonfiction, news) and write and learn from everyone and everything. I'm a New York state-certified teacher of English (7-12) and now work as a writer-editor and proofreader.

I love to journal and attend/read at open mic poetry nights and drink strong coffee and play tennis, backgammon and chess.

My last overseas trip took me to west Africa, with my Ghanaian-born friend Ben. More recently, local/regional treks brought me to Delray Beach, Florida (to help my mom move), St. Louis, Missouri, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (for copy editors conferences), and Springfield, Illinois, to visit the Abraham Lincoln home and museum.

I appreciate my independence, so I value yours. A guest in my/my wife's home should expect a lot of freedom, although should you want any information or practical tips on local bars, places to eat, or any other Chicago-area obscurities or low-down, please ask or text and I will do my best to answer your queries.

Some basics below, though a comprehensive listing would mean a bunch more screens!

Local go-to places:
(1) Tempel Farms

From the U.S. Lipizzan website: "Until 1916, the Lipizzan stud farm always remained the private possession of the Habsburg monarchy. The expansion of the breed had been affected over the centuries by military conflicts. Whenever warfare threatened the Lipizza stud, the horses were moved away." Performances of these amazing hoof-tapping equines give you a performance you'll remember. Call ahead though because if temperatures soar past 80, they might cancel performances. Horse safety is their para"mount" concern, naturally they consider each one a "mane" attraction (a two-bad-pun yawn).

Public shows begin each June.

(2) Pyramid House

A local curiosity and only about 2.5 miles from us. Local realtor (wife) and self-employed builder (husband) couple designed and built residential pyramid home. I took an insider tour back in the 80s before they ceased giving tours, although I think they still do on a limited basis. You can stop off-road and park by their gate to see the place even if you don't manage to make it inside. About a five-minute drive from my home.

(3) Volo Auto Museum

If you'd love to steer a classic car, this place will give you the next best thing: To stare at classic cars.m

Vintage and culturally iconic vehicles abound, such as all of the original Batman car (e.g., from the Adam West caped crusader TV series, to Hollywood versions) and one or two Elvis-owned Caddies. Located about 10 miles west of my home.

(4) Lake County Preserves and Park District

If you love the outdoors, Lake County (here in Illinois, there's also a Lake County in Indiana) does a great job in buying up open acreage to preserve in perpetuity, which makes living here great knowing that every square centimeter of land will NOT get swallowed by money-making urban sprawl developers. Included on the website are museum locations (which was only location in Illinois last year to have traveling exhibit of Shakespeare original manuscripts) that have stuff you might like, and its many outdoor things, though pretty sure the paddle boats at Independence Grove (in Libertyville) are closed till June.

(5) Waukegan

Birthplace and childhood home to Jack Benny, Nat King Cole, and Arthur C. Clarke, et al. Some great live theatre (e.g., Clockwise, Three Brothers) and visual and spoken arts venues (I've read stuff at poetry open mic nights), with the Genesee Theater being the best known venue for concerts, movies.

Waukegan is also home to Zaza Hair Braiding, my favorite go-to family owned business!
