The Lustron on the Lake

Take it easy at this unique and tranquil getaway. This historic Lustron home is one of only 2000 or so built in the late 1940s. We’ve added a deck and a screen porch so guests can enjoy the view of Quiver Lake and birds migrating along the Illinois River Flyway.

The space

This two-bedroom house is fully furnished. It has one queen bed in one bedroom, and two full-size beds in the second bedroom. The couch also folds open to accommodate one more guest. As a historic Lustron home, it is all metal inside and out!

Only 1,000 of these homes still exist.

Guest access

Guests have the entire home to themselves. Unfortunately, the hill in back is very steep and difficult to negotiate, and guests will have to enjoy the view from the top only.

Other things to note

Quiver Beach Road is just about two miles north of Havana – a quick 5-minute drive. The Lustron on Quiver Lake is about two miles down Quiver Beach Road. As a turquoise blue & cream colored metal house on the left (west) it’s hard to miss! But if you get to the end where the road curves, you went a little too far…Turn around and try again!
