The Davis Victorian Farm house is an 1892 landmark home. It is located in beautiful Glen Ellyn, known for its quaint down town and Vintage Homes. We are also minutes away from Wheaton, home of Wheaton College. The Davis House is located on a very quiet cul-de-sac. Set back from Davis Terrace, its front garden adds to the grandeur of this beautiful home. Steps from Babcock Grove Park as well as Lake Ellyn Park. This wonderful home was just featured in a movie which was completely shot on location!

The home has a front porch, deck and a woodland patio for relaxing and enjoying this amazing nature sanctuary. An incredible place for outdoor entertaining.

Another daughter and her fiancé slept in a separate bedroom with a full-size bed and our oldest daughter slept in... more

My mom died peacefully and we needed a place to gather our family, grieve, eat, and just be together. It was truly last minute, and the owner, Will, made it happen (he wasn't planning on getting the house ready and he was traveling too). Everyone was impressed with the place and we were all comfortable. more

I rented The Davis House for a family reunion and to attend the Ryder Cup in Medinah, IL. This is a beautiful old house in a very quiet neighborhood location. It’s very close to the town of Glen Ellyn, which is very cute and has several nice restaurants and shops. The house itself is very old but has a modern... more
