About Samuel or Marianne Oliva
My wife and I live in Northbrook Illinois which is about a 45 minute drive from our 7 acre vacation home. We keep our dirt bikes, four wheelers and other recreational vehicles at the property and come up to ride and relax when we are not renting the property out. The barn areas where we have a pool table, Xbox and Foosball table are our kids and their friends favorite hangout after riding our dirt bikes. the kids are now in college so they don't have the time to go up to our vacation home as much as we used to or would like.
Samuel or Marianne Oliva purchased this Farmhouse in 2004
Why Samuel or Marianne Oliva chose Salem
We enjoy the tranquility and peacefulness of our 7 acre vacation home. It has been very relaxing for us and is conveniently located away from the hustle and bustle of city life. In spite of being in a private and quiet place there is plenty to do for all ages including nearby walking paths, biking, motorcycling, playing pool and games, watching movies, ordering pizza, skiing at nearby Wilmot Mountain ski resort, hosting company picnics or large reunions and more.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Our property is large and flexible enough to be used for small groups or can accomodate larger groups for reunions, weddings, and/or corporate events. In spite of being located out in the country our home is still within a short distance of hundreds of diverse and interesting activities that appeal to a wide variety of tastes and interests.

Great place close to Chicago
Awesome place to celebrate any special occasion with large group of people. We rented it for a New Year's Eve and all 20 of us had a blast. Very clean place, and a lots of activities for all ages. Great communication with the owners. Thank you Samuel & Olivia!
Thanks for your kind words. Glad you had a great time. you are welcome back any time. Sam
I celebrated my 30th birthday here with a group of friends and our children and the house is PERFECT. It is so spacious and even with a large group we didn’t feel on top of each other. All the living areas were so separate, which was great because it was like everyone had their own area. The basketball court was great for all the guys and the farmhouse was perfect to hang out in during the day. The kids has so much fun with all the land and we loved the back area with the fire pit. Every one of us feel in live with the house and will definitely rent again!
Thanks for your kind review. Much appreciated. Sam
Accommodates a large group well
We stayed for a work/golf outing and this location offered quiet locations for those who preferred as well as a large gathering area for co mingling. We plan on staying for the same event next year. I would highly recommend for larger groups.
Great Property for Large Group
We had a bachelorette party here over the weekend and absolutely loved the property. The large finished barn was big enough for everyone to hang out in one area. Tons of fridge space and area for food prep. Plenty of area for cars to park in the driveway. Both houses were very clean and had all of the amenities we needed. The patio area was beautiful and had seating around the fire pit. The property had tons of activities to keep people entertained- pool table, foosball, basketball, football, volleyball net and a dresser full of board games. Samuel responded to any inquiries I had quickly. Would definitely book this property again in the future. Thank you for a great weekend!
Great End of Summer Weekend
We stayed at this property over the Labor Day holiday weekend for our annual family vacation. There were 10 adults and 6 kids (2-6 years old). There was plenty of space for all of us. Some stayed in the house and some in the barn. We loved the outside play areas, the volleyball net for the adults and the play area for the kids. And the barn, of course. What a great area! It rained Saturday morning, but the barn had enough space and toys for all of us to enjoy. We had a great time and would stay there again!
Thanks for your nice review Richard. Much appreciated! Sam
Was one of the best houses I’ve rented on home away. Great set up and so much space. The finished barn was such a great place to hang out! Owner was so easy to work with and responded to my questions so quickly. Loved everything about our stay!!
