  • 21st birthday celebration

    "We have stayed at The Maud house a number of times and have thoroughly enjoyed it every time. The location is perfect and the house is awesome. It's our favorite place to stay in Chicago. Heather is awesome to work with. Lots of great restaurants close by. The beds are super comfy and there is plenty of room to sprawl out. We love it!"

  • Great little house, needs better beds

    "This is a very nice, clean and well maintained house/cabin. It has 3 levels and was perfect for a our family--3 small kids. The loft with 2 twin beds was a big hit with the kids. The only negative, and this may be personal preference, is that the beds are very hard, like sleeping on the floor hard--this may keep me from coming back. If you don't mind super firm beds, this place is great."

  • great location

    "We really enjoyed to neighborhood. Two blocks to several restaurants. Parking on street was no problem. Only 10 to 15 minutes to downtown. Rooms were comfortable. Very nice bathrooms. Overall great unit. Wood floors are slippery in socks."

  • Summer on the Lake

    "I picked this location because I wanted lakefront and I wanted to be close to family in Cary Illinois. This property is not brand new. It could best be described as Prairie Home Companion on the inside and Ollie Hopnoodle's Haven of Bliss on the outside. This rental really does deliver 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths. We had 5 Adults and 2 preschoolers staying nightly and were joined by two more adults and two more preschoolers during the days. The downstairs bedroom was a plus for my 90 year old Father who is still able climb the 4 steps to the front door. We had two computers, two tablets and several phones running on the wireless Internet without any problems. It was fast enough to stream movies for the kids. The house has 4 TVs and Cable but we never turned them on during our stay. Meals were easy to prepare in the kitchen and we also used the outside gas grill and fire pit. We were able to fit everyone around the expanding table. We also used the two outdoor picnic tables. We did day trips to the Brookfield Zoo and to the Shedd Aquarium by car although we could have used Metra which is very close by. We drove twice to the park where Hwy 12 crosses over Fox Lake. There is a good playland there for the kids and also a boat ramp if you need one. The dock is serviceable, but the water is only about 3 feet deep at the end. You need to understand your boat's draft requirements. I brought two kayaks and bought two 10 day lake stickers. The kayaking was good through the week, but the lake can be busy with skiers on Friday through Sunday. Boats can sky within 150 feet of the shore which is within my casting distance from the end of the dock. I spent most evenings on the back porch. It's nice on a cool evening with a breeze. On still nights you might want bug spray. The solid gate was highly effective in keeping four energetic preschoolers from reaching the yard which runs right to the seawall. I brought my own childrens' life vests which I made the kids wear when on the dock. I did see some vests at the property. When you're on the lake you feel like you're on vacation and away from it all. Nevertheless you are very close to all kinds of shopping. If you need something, it is probably available close by. Because of the lake's coastline it can be confusing getting from one point to another. If you are not familiar with the area you might want to have a navigation system in your car. I used the one in my smart phone."
