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 (guests can get to Chicago in less than 30 minutes by car or 40 by commuter train). Metra train, award winning pool, hiking/biking trails, and parks are all within an easy walk.

Once a farming town, Lombard is now a vibrant community close to downtown Chicago. The city comes alive in spring with Lilac Time, a festival of spring flowers that culminates in a parade. Other yearly events include the Fourth of July fireworks celebration, a free summer concert series, weekly summer downtown events and a winter festival. Lombard's numerous public parks and trails bring neighbors together, creating a rich community spirit. Lombard's burgeoning downtown has many excellent restaurants, cafes, parks, shops, and a library. All of these amenities are an easy walk from our home.

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). The Illinois Prairie Path - a beautiful 61-mile hiking and biking trail system (see pictures) - is steps away. And so much more - we are happy to provide kid-recommended favorite places to visit in the area.

** 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 many exchanges through various exchange sites, and are always looking for our next adventure.

**** AVAILABILITY *****
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.
