The house and farm were a wedding present to my

grandparents when it was built in 1915 and has been in the

family since then. It was an operating farm until the mid 1980's

and is now used for recreation.

Richard Wm. King purchased this house in 1915

We have retained the property in the family due to its

uniqueness. It is manage as a certified family forest. It

has an orchard, prairie restoration and wildlife food plot.

The house has a unique setting, nestled in a mature oak

forest. You can enjoy the beauty of nature, take advantage of the recreational opportunities or explore Dixon's quaint downtown and many historic sites.

BEAUTIFUL SETTING AND HOME

  • 5 of 5
This stay for the month of December until January 2, 2014 was perfection for my needs. And who would have thought it would be in my hometown area WHERE I WAS BORN AND RAISED. I loved the style and amenities found in this old farm home. Brought back so many memories of my years growing up on a farm in Sterling. Thank you for allowing us to be a apart of the great home and its surrounding area. Deer, rabbits, squirrels, cardinals, chickadees all abounded during our stay. AND WINTER DID NOT HESITATE AND WAS NOT SHY DURING OUR TIME THERE. I would recommend a new oven and stove, a vacuum that works and lights over the sink and stove in the kitchen. Just small perks that would make the stay more convenient and comfortable

Thanksgiving Stay

  • 5 of 5
Very Charming home with all that is needed for a comfortable stay. Four good size bedrooms provided plenty of room for our family get-together. Located near town, but felt remote due to the wooded backyard. Kitchen small, but adequate. Very much appreciated the dog friendly policy. Rated as excellent for condition/setting as described in listing.

Pleasant County Home

My sisters and I enjoyed our stay at this homey Dixon farm house. We saw deer, turkey and squirrels all at one time in the back yard. Close to town for shopping, tourist attractions and restaurants. We would stay again if traveling in the Dixon area.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
The home was very comfortable and quaint. The property was just as described, it felt like you were miles from town when in reality you were just a few blocks from Main Street. I enjoyed sitting out side watching the wild life each morning and early evening. The kids loved the fire pit and had s'mores several times during our visit. The homes is equipped with everything you need to prepare a meal or have a cook out. The main level of the house is quite comfortable. There are two bedrooms on the main floor and two bedrooms upstairs. I wouldn't recommend the upstairs for very small children due to the proximity to the stairs and the bathroom. One of the bedrooms is quite nice and would be fine for teens or adults. I would recommend replacing the smaller cots in the 4th bedroom with actual twin beds. However they were fine for my pre-teen son. Over all the visit was great and we had a wonderful time.

Extended stay for a work assignment in Dixon

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in the Kind Cottage for 2 1/2 months and it was great. I has a work assignment at the local hospital and the commute was only about 5 minutes! Perfect location for running or biking as the house is located near several great trails. The house was lovely and the owner very accommodating! I would highly recommend it.
