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.

Bushor family from Fla made memories forever

  • 5 of 5

As a Christmas present me & my husband paid for a trip to Wisc (we live in FL) to c the snow for our family of 11 (kids & grandkids) We ckd in on Sun.to stay for a week. Most of us had never seen snow but woke up Mon. morning to see it snowing a lot. Within hours there were abt 10 inches. Snowed again Wed. and a little late Thurs. night. This was perfect. The pictures on line made the house look gorgeous but when we got there it was even better than the pictures (not sure how that was possible) The hill in the yard was awesome for sledding down. We would daily have to make the kids come in (& some of the adults including me) it was sooo much fun. Me & my husband went walking all around the property & even seen some deer late one aftrn. The cottage which was loaded with games & extra beds, was wonderful. We stayed over there more than in the main house. I definitely recommend you add this if you r renting the house. Plenty of everything was in the house , example towels, blankets, kitchen items & much more. Even things u wld not have expected r there for your use. Both places were well equipped. On Wed. when my son came back from town he got the car stuck in the driveway (due to so much snow) We cld Sam and within an hr or 2 he had someone out there clearing the driveway and the area behind the house. We were all 100% happy with the houses and would definitely recommend it to anyone. I have to say a big THANK YOU to Sam for the memories he has allowed us to make with our family while staying at his house. You for sure r part of the reason our trip was AWESOME !!!

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We had a college reunion at the property last weekend. The property and amenities exceeded our expectations. When we arrived, everything was sparkling clean. The barn house was a great place to gather and socialize, and the deck of the main house provided an excellent place for meals. It was everything we could have asked for.
