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
  • Submitted: Jan 11, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
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

  • Submitted: Dec 10, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
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.

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.
