Original 1932 log cabin filled with romantic charm; a quiet getaway to another place in time just 70 minutes from Chicago. The house has been featured in the October 2012 Country Living Magazine and also the October 2010 Midwest Living Magazine. This picturesque cabin is nestled under a canopy of old oak trees with a private beach just steps away. The 3 bedroom (2 double beds, 1 twin) 2 bath is surrounded by beautiful gardens and is a wonderful getaway all year round. There is a charming back porch (heated) which feels like being in a tree house with 42 inch flat screen TV, screened in front porch with porch swing, great room with fabulous field stone fireplace, a fire pit in the rear garden and a wonderful beach 200 steps away...close enough that forgetting something at the house is an easy fix.
"The cabin" was a private and cherished country family home for many years so is an extra special place unlike others. It is filled with lovely antiques and is authentic to the period with all of the modern conveniences.
Wake to the birds, go to sleep to the sounds of the lake and silence, enjoy coffee and cocktails on the screened in front porch, sunbath, beach walk, antique, shop, dine, ride horses, make a fabulous meal in the well equipped kitchen, relish lush greenery and peace or just relax in a refined rustic envionrment. Ralph Lauren would approve; a dream come true for anyone who wants more than average!
