Our 10th Anniversary! Thank-you!

****LAST MINUTE SAVINGS!**** March 1, 2017- We have begun testing a program much like the airlines do for seats and hotels for rooms. Within a 30 day window of an arrival date, we post in our rates section discounted rates on weekdays that have not been booked, called" Last Minute Savings". The savings are substantial and reflect our goal to offer those wanting an experience at Lake Shore House the opportunity to do so at a discounted rate. These rates and all of our published rates, cleaning and pet fees are not negotiable. Please respect our testing of this new program.

We are dog friendly! Dog(s) stay for an additional $15 per dog per night.

We welcome last minute bookings! Lake Shore House is cleaned at each departure and is ready for your visit. Contact us for last minute reservations. We offer a stream lined booking process for last minute bookings; we can invoice you through PayPal, as an alternative to online booking through VRBO. We can also process bookings more than 30 days out with personal checks, thus saving you the online booking fee.

Lake Shore House is a fully equipped vacation rental on Lake Michigan. Beautiful unobstructed lake views on one of America’s Great Lakes, offers a relaxing mid-week, weekend, or week retreat. Since 2007 we have hosted hundreds of guests at Lake Shore House, providing them with ambience, cleanliness, and an easy reservation and access procedure. We are open 365 days a year. Guests come from Europe and all 50 states to enjoy the lake. In summer they enjoy the beach and tranquility, fall the autumnal colors and privacy, winter the frozen lake and winter activities and spring to cure cabin fever with a fresh getaway. The sunrise and moonrise shimmering across the lake have brought special memories to guests and families throughout the year and are reflected in the Lake Shore House visitor’s log.

Not your typical cookie-cutter destination, Lake Shore House offers privacy in a single-family home that features central air-conditioning, hardwood floors, laundry, wood-burning stove, one-car garage, expansive deck, updated kitchen and bathes. Sleeping accommodations for six, two second floor bedrooms with skylights and ceiling fans, one with a king size bed and a balcony overlooking the Lake, the other featuring a queen size bed, plus a queen sleeper sofa in the living room with abundant natural light from three directions. The main floor ceramic tile bath has a full-size tub with shower and pedestal sink. The lower level features a half-bath, laundry and a twin rollaway bed.

If you are a couple, single, family, multi-generational, girl’s getaway or other guest, we have hosted just about every type and lifestyle of guest. We embrace diversity. We are dog friendly and have had just about every breed of dog. If you would like to bring yours, tell us something about them, we rarely turn well groomed and behaved dogs away.

As your host, I am equipped to handle last-minute bookings. I am available by cell phone from 7 AM to 6 PM CST seven days a week.

You have a great lake house! It was perfect for a quick 2-day getaway weekend with close friends. We’re heading back to Chicago well rested and ready to take on the week. Thank-you for everything and we wish you the best.
Shariq & Becky, Chris & Megan, Chicago, Illinois

This place is magical! Such a park-like setting with a wonderful view. Perfect setting for a birthday weekend.
The Schmitt’s, Johnson Creek, Wisconsin

We’ve truly enjoyed our week in your lovely home. We are always blest by spending days on end just being by the waters of Lake Michigan and this was a great opportunity to do just that.
Don & Jan, Arlington Heights, Illinois

Thank-you for providing such a wonderful place. We enjoyed the house very much. We were here for the Sports Car Club of America races.
Debbi & Lonnie, Louisville, Kentucky

Thanks for sharing your beautiful Lake Shore House with us. We really appreciated all the extra touches to make us feel welcome.
Michael & Karen, Aurora, Illinois

As I snooped around to familiarize myself to my new surroundings, I found that I was not wanting for anything. You have thought of everything! Teapot, blender, flashlight, sandwich bags, etc. Perfection! Oh yeah, and an up-to-date People Magazine, that I just saw in the store today! My very favorite thing was finding a note and my name on it, waiting on the dining room table for me.
Shaundi, Evansville, Wisconsin

Our 2nd Labor Day at Lake Shore House. The farmer’s market in town on Saturday has an amazing selection of vegetables and eats. We played tennis on South High School’s courts, visited Kohler Art Museum downtown and just enjoyed lazing in this relaxing spot.
Theresa & Bruce, Urbana, Illinois

We returned to Lake Shore House to celebrate our 25th anniversary. As always, everything was perfect! We never get tired of the beautiful view, walks on the beach and just relaxing in this peaceful retreat. We purchased the poster “Colors of Love” to remember our special celebration.
Bart & Liz, Ononomowoc, Wisconsin

This is such a fabulous place! We really enjoyed our time here. The views are incredible, the house is charming and the art so bright and cheery. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.
Kevin & Kathy, Orinda, California

Great view of Lake Michigan! We love your artwork. Very relaxing place. Everything neat and orderly. We didn’t worry about a thing. When talking about the house we would say your name like we knew you.
Maude & Ross, Pleasant Hill, Missouri

Relaxing-fun-beautiful views-we really enjoyed our quick escape.
Connie & Jeff, Chicago, Illinois

We enjoyed the backyard and ate most of our meals outside while enjoying the lake view.
Kristine & Bill, Cedar Rapids, Iowa

I am so glad I found you on my search for a house on Lake Michigan! This is the perfect view-I want this house! You’re very talented artistically as well.
