Overview

Peoria House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8-9

Ever dream of peaceful, idyllic farm life? Enjoy an Illinois farm stay in our gorgeous 100 year old house on 6 acres of pasture. The cows, goats, and chickens await you, and chores are optional! This beautiful, 'clean, modern' restored farm house rental will provide you an unforgettable getaway. Recently fully refurbished, our house features large windows in every room, gleaming hardwood floors, a fully-furnished kitchen with all new appliances, and a luxurious upstairs bathroom with a clawfoot tub, separate shower, and radiant floor heat. Master bedroom has queen Tempur-pedic bed. There's also a baby grand piano for music lovers!

This unique property is both intimate and spacious, equally suitable for a romantic getaway or a family reunion, small conference, or retreat.

Kids & adults alike will be captivated with farm animals and many spaces to explore, inside & out.

We bought this house near our family and roots in Illinois when it came on the market even though our jobs will keep us in a different state for the foreseeable future. We love the chance to leave our home in congested Orange County, California, and experience the incredibly relaxing and rejuvenating farm life in beautiful rural Central Illinois. Our kids have gained so much from the freedom and responsibility they have on the farm. They have learned to milk and do many types of farm chores. Spending time here is a unique opportunity in this day and age, and one that we are happy to be able to share with you!

Grass fed local eggs, meat, and organically raised produce from Kate's Cottage Farm seasonally available for purchase.

About Kristine Percy

We are a family with two school-aged children and two grown sons. Our interests include farming, gardening, music, and aviation.

Kristine Percy purchased this house in 2009

Why Kristine Percy chose Peoria

The mom of the family grew up across the street from this property and has always loved the house and the pasture that makes up the six acres. When the property came up for sale in 2009, we felt fortunate to be able to buy it even though our jobs will keep us in a different state for the foreseeable future.

Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5
We just returned to Colorado after a wonderful Thanksgiving at this home. We had 3 couples, a 3 month old, and a 2 year old. Our family is from Illinois and we wanted to celebrate the holiday and a special birthday. We had 25+ for Thanksgiving day and with family bringing a couple card tables and folding chairs we all had a place to sit. The weather was cold and snowy and the house stayed warm and cozy!
We had a minor issue with some plumbing and the owners responded immediately and took care of the problem.
I would stay here again, hopefully when we can enjoy the front porch!
The upstairs bath with the heated floors was very nice!! The kitchen had everything we needed and the appliances were great. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a relaxing, country experience!

Great stay at farmhouse

  • 5 of 5
Our family recently enjoyed a wonderful stay at the farmhouse (our second stay in a two-year period). We have a young daughter who loves going to the farm and we enjoy watching her interact with all of the animals. The accommodations are nice, clean, and comfortable- delivered as pictured in the photos. Very relaxing environment; provides for a unique weekend. Peoria is only 15 minutes away and offers numerous restaurants & amenities but you really feel away from everything while you are here. Very easy drive from St. Louis and a wonderful weekend getaway. Can not recommend this house highly enough.

Thank You!!

  • 5 of 5
Many thanks for a lovely respite from our Chicago city life. We really enjoyed spending the weekend in this beautiful home, and especially enjoyed the well equipped modern farm kitchen, the heavenly spa bathroom, the super comfortable beds, the relaxing porch, and the fuzzy blankets! It was fun to watch the young lambs, and to chat with Kate and Mary about sustainable farming. James was a fabulous 'tour guide', and provided highly entertaining conversations. Our daughter enjoyed lots of space to dance, and practicing at the baby grand.

We highly recommend this lovely home, and hope to come back again!

Excellent weekend stay

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed the house and our stay there ! We had three adult couples get together for a reunion of siblings w/spouses, and the house was perfect for our stay. It was very clean, well appointed, and warm on a cold winter's day !! We would recommend, and hope to come back and stay again in the future ! Thank you.

Christmas In The Country

  • 5 of 5
This is our second Christmas spent at the rental and we truly enjoyed our time with family and friends. The house is cozy and comfortable for us to entertain or just lay on the couch and read a book. The kitchen is well stocked and we prepared several large meals quite easily. The grocery in Farmington was a life-saver more than once. Lots of wonderful family memories were added to our scrapbook. Thanks Kris, we will be back, hopefully during a little warmer weather. Your lovely vacation home never disappoints.

The title fits the home well!

  • 5 of 5
Our experience at this VRBO farm house near Peoria, IL was wonderful! A group of nine friends stayed for an extended Labor Day weekend and found it to be even better than we expected. The kitchen and baths were more than adequate for our large group. The air-conditioning was able to keep everyone comfortable, thanks to an added window unit upstairs and ceiling fans throughout. There were plenty of necessities such as towels and paper products.

Unfortunately, the well ran dry on the 4th day due to the dry summer and our group not conserving as much as we should have. Even running out of water wasn’t a problem thanks to the well-prepared caretakers who delivered 2-500 gallon tanks of water and pumped it into the well.

I highly recommend this VRBO; the place is indeed heavenly and the people involved in the rental are very helpful and easy to work with.
