"The property is stunning! First class all the way, the pictures and description don't do it justice. The house comfortably slept our large group with everyone having a bed. Located about 1h30m from Chicago, this is a great getaway for a weekend trip! Like all the previous reviews, the house comes with everything you can ever imagine or think of. The kitchen has everything you need to cook with a natural gas grill located on the screened in porch. I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone and already looking forward to our next stay at Grande Vista Manor!!!"

"We take a Lake trip every summer with another family (we each have two kids under 4 years old). This year we chose Lake Beulah and it was great. The house was incredibly kid friendly and accommodated our two families perfectly. The highlight for the 4 year-olds were the bunk beds and secret hiding nook. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking, the garage well equipped with every size life jacket or boating accessory you could imagine, and the house was fully stocked with plenty of beach towels! We rented the owner's boat which proved to be incredibly convenient. We didn't have to hassle with finding a rental and losing precious lake time and the boat was in great shape. There is a wonderful fire pit which we would have used more often but the mosquitoes were vicious. What more can I say? We had a very enjoyable stay in a very comfortable house on a wonderful lake."

"This was my first time renting a vacation rental. I usually like to do the high end hotel thing. the owner was very nice and informative throughout the whole experience. She even sent me websites to things to do in the area and explained the ski show schedule. I was worried we wouldn't have something that we needed in the kitchen or to occupy the kids, but it was exactly like she said it would be. The house was real clean and comfoortable. I think this was one of the nicest vacations we have had as a family. Grandma and Grandpa got to come and so did our little dog. My daughter loved the toys and puzzles that were at the house and the shallow water was perfect for a 4 year old. We wanted to make our trip longer but the house was all booked up. We will make sure to book early next year if we can get the time off work. A nice experience,indeed."

"The house was lovely. Loved all the pictures of the castles and Ireland. Beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were so nice. Luxury bathroom upstairs. This place has everything you could want in a vacation house. Beautiful setting. As somebody else mentioned, lots of stairs, but so worth it. The stairs lead you to the lake where there is a nice boat house with separate patio. At least it was a picturesque stairway. The lake was great. The kids never ran out of things to do. The only complaints I had were the scary steep driveway and the bricks that lead into the lake. They looked nice, but a little slippery at the water's edge. A little sandy beach would make it perfect! Both were not a big deal considering all this place had to offer! Hot tub was very clean and we used it often. We hope to go back for sure! The kids cried about having to leave!"
