About Gordon Fidler
Gordon and Tammy are originally from the Peoria area, but have lived near Springfield since getting married in 1991. Gordon retired from a career in law enforcement in 2010, and in 2012 they bought their first rental property in Chatham. They have four children, three of whom were adopted and are still at home.
Gordon Fidler purchased this House in 2012
Why Gordon Fidler chose Chatham
This house was selected due to its close proximity to their residence, the quality of the school district, and the fact that it reminds them of their home growing up, and their grandparent's home. The layout of the house as well as the era both bring back great memories. For two years, the house had been unfurnished and rented out on an annual basis. In February of 2015 it was transitioned into a fully furnished home for rent by visitors to the area. It's not quite a bed and breakfast, but they still get to provide warm hospitality for their guests.
What makes this House unique
They love the peaceful feel when they walk into the house. There are times when they will take time to go to the house to sit and read, and Gordon has confessed he has taken a nap or two there as well. The kitchen is spacious, as are the bedrooms and living room. It's a comfortable place to relax.
A pack and play is available at the house

Pleasant and comfortable
Quiet neighborhood. Just far enough from Springfield for peace but close enough for quick access.
Very clean and comfortable house with all the amenities you need! Met Gordon upon check in and very friendly...easy to communicate with and responded quickly to all messages. Very comfortable bed with lots of nice touches. I would recommend this place to others.
Perfect place for our stay
This is the second time we have stayed here and it didn't disappoint again. Gordon made the whole processes easy and enjoyable! The house was perfect for our needs and was clean. Yes, there is a train nearby, but it really didn't bother us at all. It was easy to get used to. In fact, the kids loved to run outside and watch the train whenever they could. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely try to stay there again when we are in the area.
Warm and inviting
Everyone was impressed with their stay at this house. Clean and very comfortable. Would book again.
Clean and Colorful
A nice community with a great Thai restaurant are added bonuses. Very clean and nice colorful accents in the home. If we were passing this way again we’d stay here again.
The house was great, very clean. Only draw back was the proximity to the train tracks.
Renting was very easy, communication with the owner very good, except for the mix up when we checked in.
Paved walking and biking path is across the street from the house.
