Why We Chose Apple Canyon Lake:: We enjoy the casual atmosphere. The development is full of fun loving people. We enjoy boating and entertaining. We love the sunsets, the 13 mile nature trail around the lake and the Apple Canyon State Park nearby.
Owners Profile:: We moved from Chicago's Western suburbs 31 years ago. We have been building and selling vacation homes in Jo Daviess County since 1979. This is the second town home that we purchased and rent at Apple Canyon Lake. We bought this one so that we could rent to larger groups and families. Each unit can handle 8 adults. Having the units side by side also seemed to be a bonus. Deb is an AIA architect specializing in residential and historic properties. Paul is a real estate broker in Jo Daviess County specializing in new construction and farms. We enjoy meeting new people and helping them make their dreams come true.
