Enjoy our 1907 colonial farmhouse in a lovely quiet, friendly suburb near Chicago. Metra train, award winning pool, hiking/biking trails, and parks are all within an easy walk. Ideal for families who want to enjoy both the hustle and bustle of Chicago as well as family friendly activities more easily accessible from the suburbs. Aside from an easy drive/train ride to Chicago, our home is a short distance from Great America amusement park, Raging Waves water park, less crowded family friendly Lake Michigan beaches, huge outlet malls, and gorgeous hiking at Starved Rock State Park (1.5 hours away). The Illinois Prairie Path - a beautiful 61-mile hiking and biking trail system (see pictures) - is steps away. And so much more - we are happy to provide kid-recommended favorite places to visit in the area. Our town has a lovely downtown with excellent restaurants. Our home allows you to enjoy all that Chicago offers in a large, comfortable 4 bedroom home with kid-friendly backyard (trampoline and play set). Visitors always comment how peaceful and beautiful our home and neighborhood is!

Neighbourhood

Our neighborhood is very friendly, quiet, and extremely safe. You will often see people walking their pets or strolling to the park with their kids. The award-winning Lombard Commons public pool is within walking distance, as are many beautiful parks (including nationally recognized Lilacia Park).

Getting around

Downtown Lombard is an easy 10 minute walk, as is the Metra (train) station. Will be helpful to have a car for getting groceries but not 100% necessary.
