When I first stepped foot on this property I literally fell to my knees in awe of the beauty. There were many offers on it but I had to have it so I offered well over asking price. It has been an adventure making it my own over the past 4 years. I even got a pet pig - Alice! I love sharing this beautiful piece of land with other nature lovers. It's rare to have property of this size with this beauty in a Chicago suburb. You feel like you're out in the middle of the woods yet if you drive 5 minutes to Randall road there's any restaurant or store you could ever need. I look forward to sharing this space with you!

Sleep by the Creek
Kristen’s property was idyllic and I am so grateful I booked here for two nights. I loved the sound of the creek and the birds. There were wildflowers and big trees and I couldn’t have asked for a better place to rest while I was visiting. Kristen met me at arrival and showed me around the property which was a kind and unexpected gesture.

Very nice host! Nice property , a great place for tenters . Basically a driveway parking spot for a trailer or motor home. Good spot for an overnight. Quiet spot.

No problem setting up a tent; there were many flat sites to choose from. Lots of trees around the perimeter of the yard. The grass was short with clover and bees around to watch. There was a table-top fire pit that worked out really well for the two of us. I was able to get a 10" Dutch oven over the fire without any problems. We were able to find quite a few sticks on the property for fire kindling. The Jewel off of Randall (a very short drive away) had firewood bundles for sale. The indoor bathroom was very helpful and we appreciated being able to use it. On-site garbage available as well. The creek was a great time. The water was ice cold but very refreshing during the heat of the day. Behind her property, the creek isn't that deep but if you keep walking, you'll find some deeper spots. Don't forget to bring a clothesline to hang clothes from to dry. There are trees perfectly suited for this. Also did some geocaching around the area as well. We did not need to take advantage of the very large fire pit. It would be absolutely ideal for larger parties. There were chairs around the pit as well. The whole back property had solar powered lights that provided just enough light to light your way to the house but definitely left it very dark to enjoy the fireflies and bats. (At least I think they were bats.) Kristen, the host, kept in contact before our arrival, showed us around and then left us to our own fun. She was responsive to messages during our stay.

This was a great overnight stop for my family. Kristen was super friendly and her yard was beautiful. My son loved splashing in the creek!

We had a great night camping here! The host was quick to respond and showed us around her property when we arrived. We really enjoyed the privacy—our kids could run around in the yard, play in the creek and have fun without any issues. While still pretty close to modern conveniences (ie: food and stores) the property has a fairly isolated feeling. Would definitely stay there again.

Camping by the Creek
We had an amazing time on Kristen’s land. It was beautiful, there was plenty of privacy, and she was a great host who made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. A short walk to the creek was a major highlight for us as well as our dog. Kristen had a fire pit ready for us next to our creek side camp site, and even with light showers we had a blast. Highly recommended, we look forward to visiting again!
