  • Lovely property for a big group, convenient to state parks

    "When four families converged on this house from all over the country, we were delighted to find a bright, clean, lovely home in a cute family resort that was convenient to local attractions. The 55th anniversary couple took the lovely master suite on the third floor, and the rest of us spread out in the large bunk room, the double double bedroom with the hot tub, and sleeper couches. Even with our large group there was no waiting on bathrooms, with four spotless well-appointed ones available. It's an end unit of a group of four townhouses that is very quiet and private feeling. The back deck overlooks a lawn and pond, and is a lovely place to sit and have morning coffee. Speaking of coffee, the kitchen is well equipped, from a good quality coffee maker to plenty of stemware and everything in between. We really didn't need to bring anything but food. We enjoyed hopping the little "train" that circles the resort property just for kicks. We also enjoyed (after some wails from the teens) not having wifi in the house. There's good wifi in the lodge, if anyone needs it. The TVs get local channels, and we could have watched DVDs, but quite honestly, when we were in the house it was just like olden times -- board games for hours (there are some in the house, if you don't bring your own). Highly recommend walking the trails at Mathison and Starved Rock State Parks and doing a canoe trip (we used C&M rentals and they were terrific). We were already talking about coming back as were loading the cars to leave. The owner is lovely, communicates well, and deals with issues swiftly. Can't ask for better. Thanks, Diane!"

  • Clean, cozy cottage with a beautiful view

    "This was my first experience with a vacation rental and it was an extremely pleasant one! The owner was wonderful to work with, the home was in excellent condition, the view was lovely, and the atmosphere so much more relaxed and comfortable than a hotel for my family. Price-wise it was comparable to a hotel, but with so much more space and privacy. We will definitely stay here again!"

  • Bob & Ann

    "We had a wonderful stay here. The studio was practically new, immaculately clean, nicely furnished, and very quiet considering this is a densely populated area. The carriage house, with 2 studios, is charming, and there is a small courtyard between the carriage house and the main house, often populated by a friendly kitty. I think the owners have gone to pains to think of just about everything a guest would need. Internet speed is slow, but, heck, they give you a laptop! Who could complain, really? Lots of nice restaurants along Bryn Mawr and Clark and some of the side streets. We enjoyed several really nice antique/flea market shops in the area as well. We always felt safe. Public transportation via, mostly, the Red Line El, is quite good. We've been to Chicago a number of times and have stayed in nice (not too upscale) hotels along the Mag Mile. This charming place will give a great experience for, say $50 less per night than a very ordinary room downtown. A great buy, I think."
