When you book with us:


We believe in treating you like part of the family. Gregory's always feels like a little slice of home.


Ditch the worry! Gregory's changes all towels and bedding between every stay. We thoroughly sanitize the rooms between guests.


No matter the ask, we always aim to accommodate. From changing the timer on a crockpot to putting an inside joke on our sign, we will do it!

Meet Our Family!

Gregory's Lodging is entirely family owned and operated!


Front Manager

Annie is the second-oldest sibling and specializes in general store management, web development, communication and social media. Annie has a Brachial Plexus Injury which has partially paralyzed her right arm. We love all the hard work Annie has done and her influence in working on our inclusivity.



Big Boss

Many of you know Rich, even as Greg. He's the talker, the master of property checks, and a Navy veteran. Originally from Chicago (yes, the actual city itself), he has been in central Illinois for many years now. After retiring from Jewel Osco he turned Gregory's into a thriving general store and modern accommodations with his partner Mary.



Tech Specialist

Since graduating from American University with dual degrees, Tasha has added a freshness to Gregory's. She is an idea machine, task master, and an IT genius (to the rest of us old people). She loves to camp, cook, and give Rich a hard time.


Backend Manager

Richie is our secret ninja in charge of property management. Sometimes you can spot him fiddling around. He is our biscuits and gravy guy, maintenance man, science guy, fact knower and jack of all trades.



Mary works in the Decatur school district as a full-time Speech and Language Pathologist. She loves interacting with kids and helping at Gregory's over the summers! Organizing and locating lost items are her superpowers. The family's hard work ethic comes from Mary.



All Around Good Guy

Jake is the newest addition to the crew! You might have seen our resident redhead out and about over the past couple years. Now he is officially our 6th and most able-bodied employee. That makes him a builder, fixer, and general mover of heavy objects.

Customer Buzz

We strive to give you the perfect vacation destination! But don't just take it from us, here's what our customers are saying.

Bachelor/Bachelorette Party

"Just wrapped up a joint bachelor/bachelorette weekend getaway for our friends and all couples stayed at Gregory’s. The experience was incredible! Clean, great breakfast, amazing outdoor spaces, and the owners and their children are so friendly and sweet. My fiancé and I travel often, and we both agree Gregory’s was a top ten experience! We can’t wait to go back next summer!" - August '21
