Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

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). And so much more - we are happy to provide kid-recommended favorite places to visit in the area.

Lombard 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!

** Please note: we do not have central A/C (air conditioning). We have several window units on the first floor and one in each of the bedrooms that keep the house cool in summer. Just FYI in case that is important. **

We have completed several exchanges through various exchange sites, and have 3 more exchanges lined up thru Summer 2020.

We have a 3 week exchange next July 2020 in Germany so cannot accommodate any exchanges next summer unless you would like to be hosted and/or want a long weekend in June or August.
