Newly remodeled, one-bedroom cottage is just a 10 minute drive to the University of Illinois. Sunlit kitchen and bedroom offer a peaceful pond view. This well-equipped cottage provides all of the amenities of a home, including basic kitchen essentials. Enjoy the seclusion of woodsy Urbana as well as quick access to downtown or campus. The ideal retreat for a solo sojourn or a romantic getaway.

The space
Experience nature in this clean and uncluttered cottage nestled among the mature wooded landscape of northeast Urbana. Take in peaceful views of the pond from the dining area and French-windowed bedroom with walkout deck. This private little cottage makes for an idyllic getaway destination—just minutes away from anywhere you would need to go.

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire cottage:
• Bedroom with luxurious king-size bed
• Kitchen with modern appliances
• Full bathroom with spacious shower
• Walk-in closet with full-length mirror
• Private deck overlooking pond

Amenities include:
• All the basic kitchen essentials (cookware, utensils, gadgets) and supplies
• 50" TV with Netflix, Amazon Prime, and local channels
• Washer and dryer w/detergent, iron, hangers
• Wifi
• Parking

A second bed (single/twin rollaway with memory foam mattress) can be easily wheeled into the kitchenette, which has a door for privacy.

There's a selection of different pillows in the closet, should those on the bed not suit your sleeping style.

Other things to note
While we don't have an "extra-people" charge, please indicate the actual number of overnight guests at the time of booking (max. 3). Due to limited parking, let us know if you will be expecting any visitors.

This cottage is bathed in natural light, including a large vaulted skylight over the king-size bed. For light sleepers, a complimentary disposable sleep mask is provided as a courtesy.

Our semi-rural setting comes with it's own set of sounds. While the easily accessible interstate hums a familiar tone, the sounds you're most likely to take notice of will be of nature: the croaking of frogs, chirping of birds, howling of coyotes, pitter-patter of rain on the skylight... These vary with the seasons and time of day.
