Renting a home from Air BnB provides a unique opportunity to plan a very special vacation. For just the 2 of you, your whole family or bring a bunch of friends.

I like water, tranquility and space to do something a little different each day of a vacation. While there are many to pick from for an Illinois getaway (aka staycation), these were 5 that really caught me eye.

The last one is something REALLY special!

Which one will be perfect for your family?
