Looking for a unique summer stay that isn't something like a hotel or water park resort?

How about staying in a wooden shoe factory from the 1880's? Probably not something you'd ever think of doing on your own. But that's why Airbnb is the best. They help you find places to stay that you never even thought possible.

The "Wooden Shoe Factory, Historic, w/ Bar & Breakfast" is located in Teutopolis, Illinois which is just a little over a few hours from Rockford. This Airbnb is from the 1880's, how cool is that?

The Airbnb listing details -

Historic 1880 Wooden Shoe Factory by Wooden Shoe Maker Gerhard Deymann. A great getaway Tiny House from the past with a stocked Bar & Books. Please take some & leave some :-) Fully furnished. Tons of charm. It has a loft, luggage lift, exposed brick/beams, fireplace, bikes, antiques, front sitting area, swing, grill, back patio, yard, pedal bar, private parking, appliances, vaulted ceilings. 6 minutes to I57, I70, Effingham, & dozens of restaurants. 1 block to 7 Teutopolis Bars, & diners.

One of the coolest parts of the Airbnb is a unique amenity it offers. Ever heard of a pedal bar? It's pretty self explanatory. It's like a giant bar on wheels, but you move those wheels with your feet just like you pedal a bike! I've been on one before and they're so fun. The listing says -

The pedal bar takes 8 people to ride so book our wooden shoe haus or Agnes's Loft in town with a big bunch and have some fun!

So let's take a look at this place.
