“Magical experience that we will never forget.”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2012

I rented the Davis house for me and my family for part of the summer. The only way I can decribe the experience was heavenly. The house isn't just a destination, it is a living piece of history and art. When we weren't spending the afternoon on the lemonade porch swing enjoying breeze and looking out upon the elaborate gardens, we were picking concord grapes off the vines that grew athwart the arched iron trellis. And if that wasnt enough, our experience was truly transformed 200 years into the long past as the kids collected the grapes I taought them how to make grape jelly in anb old world french country kitchen.(By the way, William, we left you some jelly in a glass jar in the fridge.) Another pleasant surprise was the town of Glen Ellyn was only a 10 minute walk to town, and what an odorable antique town this was! While we were there, Glen Ellyn hosted an art and music festifal in town which was the icing on the cake. This house desives special accoloades and recognition and deserves the title of being called the 1892 landmark Davis Farm house.

“Wonderful Home”

We have used vacation rentals many times over the years for family vacations across the country. This one was special. My husband and I grew up in the area. As a resident, I always wondered what it would be like to live in one of the grand historic homes in Glen Ellyn. I finally got to experience this first hand and it did not disappoint! This home is meticulously restored with respect to age, era and architecture. The grounds reflect the owner's passion for gardening and are reminiscent of a professionally landscaped preserve. The front porch swing was a favorite spot of my 10-year-old who's main interest typically involves a screen and power source. I'd find him out there just watching the birds and taking in the beauty of the garden. We elected to entertain most evenings rather that go out with family and friends simply because the home's atmosphere was tough to beat. The kitchen with it's big country sink, french stove, and authentic farmhouse table became an instant gathering place. The house was roomy, the bedrooms comfortable, and the master shower... well lets just say I'll be sending cards. My favorite spot was the turret off the master bedroom. I struggled to concentrate on the novel I brought to read as I took in the views from the 6-or-so windows among the trees. Location-wise, I was walking distance to Lake Ellyn, downtown (I actually got the kids to walk to the farmers' market) and family. The house is nestled in one of the most picturesque residential areas anywhere. I would highly recommend this home to anyone. The owner was a delight, the home a perfect suburban location, and the experience, beyond expectations.

“We absolutely loved our stay at the Davis House!”

We came from SC for our son's wedding in Wheaton. I found the Davis House on Vrbo.com What a find!! The house is nestled in a beautiful neighborhood in Glen Ellyn. The gardens and landscaping make it so inviting. The house was such a great gathering spot for our family and friends who had come to the wedding from all over the United States. We hosted several dinners from the incredible kitchen and folks were amazed at the immenities in the home! All the different seating areas in the house made it perfect for pockets of people to visit with each other. The shower in the master bath was an incredible surprise and we enjoyed the rain shower immensely. We enjoyed the train rides into the city and the surrounding communities. We met the owner while tending the gardens. He has a gracious heart and welcoming spirit. I highly recommend this home to vacationers!
