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 your vacation. While there are many to pick from, these were 5 in Illinois that really caught me eye. The last one is something REALLY special.

Country cabin on a quiet tree lined street that is peaceful and beautiful. A rear deck has a gorgeous view overlooking the water.

The deck has a bbq, and fishing off the dock can be quite good in the evening just before dusk. The air is so clean and clear that a million stars can be seen on a cloudless evening.
