"We had a wonderful time here and the place is amazing! Mary has the touch for decorating. Everything was so well put together and clean! The breakfast casserole was soooo delicious! Even though the weather was a little chilly on one of the days we still enjoyed playing games at the house. We love it and Mary and Andy so much we're already booked for next year!"

"I organized a gathering of friends for over 20 years for 15 (adults + young children) from all over the country and wanted to them to experience a "Lake House" vacation. Living in Chicago this was a perfect spot being a short drive from the city for me and my wife and I don't think our stay as a group could have gone any better. From the initial communication, Maureen was very prompt, courteous and professional. The description and photos of the property is accurate and one can easily sense how much pride her family takes in the property. When we arrived and saw the property in person, we were all amazed by the house, the views and the location. From the scenic balcony views, spacious rooms, plentiful bathrooms, fire pit, grill, deck and extras - it was perfect. This is one of those memories my friends and I will remember for a very long time. Everyone couldn't stop raving about the place and said we needed to do this every year. Who knows...we may have converted some West and East Coasters to become Midwesterners! Thank you Maureen, we truly enjoyed our time at your house and would definitely stay there again!"

"We were looking for a place to host a girls’ getaway weekend. The catch? We needed to find a place to accommodate 14 of us on Friday night and 19 of us on Saturday night. Finding the Nautical Homes was like winning the lottery!
First off, the reservation process itself was seamless. Debi, the owner, was great. Quick to respond to voicemails and emails and very personable. No issues with billing and she provides a “Bible” of the homes prior to your arrival. It give you all the info you need to know regarding getting in, what’s stocked in the homes, how to work the heat, information on local attractions, etc. She requests you call once you arrive to ensure everything is as you expected it to be. She also responded to my call on Saturday when I thought there may have been an issue with the heat in one of the homes. She walked me through what to check out via telephone but before we knew it, a gentleman arrived to inspect it in person. Customer service at its finest!
The homes? Gorgeous historic homes in the heart of downtown Lake Geneva, walking distance to shopping, restaurants and the lake itself. Too many bedrooms (and beds!) to count! Ample living space, dining room space and bathrooms for our group. We could spread out and enjoy board games, movies, quiet time, etc. Linens, extra blankets and towels are all provided, which was really nice. The homes are next door to each other and just a short walk across the driveway separates them, making this arrangement perfect for our large group. We never felt crowded or on top of each other and had plenty of space to enjoy ourselves. (Even room for a dance floor when we moved some furniture out of the way!!)
We are already talking about making this an annual getaway weekend and without hesitation would rent the Nautical Homes again. Thanks again, Debi, for everything!"

"I was very pleased with my stay at the Clearview Lodge this past June 2015. The property was clean and well kept. Everything in the home was organized and clearly labeled for our convenience. Quiet, serene location overlooking the lake was spectacular but there were lots of bugs (outside) due to the location near the forest and water. I'd recommend bringing bug spray/repellant. The owner was very prompt with communication and accommodated all our special needs, going above and beyond my expectations. We had a great stay and would not hesitate to book the property again in the future."
