There's nothing quite like falling asleep when you have the Mississippi River nearby. If that's also on your list of "things you'd like to experience on a getaway", I found a place in Hamilton, Illinois that offers that and also an orchard view.

I found this Riverview Orchard hosted by Kim on Airbnb in Hamilton, Illinois and it looks like an incredible location. Here's a snippet of how Kim describes it on her listing:

Keep it simple at this peaceful and centrally-located home. The front yard features views of the Mighty Mississippi River, Dam, and Power Plant that you can enjoy while sitting on the front porch. The back yard features a small orchard with multiple fruit trees, strawberries, grapes, etc. This can be viewed from the back porch seating area which also houses a gas grill.

Gas grill, you say? You had me at hello.

So far all the reviews are a perfect 5 out of 5. The fact that Kim's place is near Nauvoo is handy for visitors to that area. As of this writing, the nightly cost is $160. Kim has even more pics and details on the Airbnb listing. The river and the orchard await.
