Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: A husband and wife team that likes to share a relaxing country vacation home with other outdoor enthusiasts.

Why the Owner Chose Apple Canyon Lake, Thompson, IL, USA:
Apple Canyon Lake is close to several major metropolitan areas, the ride is a lot shorter than going to northern Wisconsin. The lake water is very clean and continually ranks in the top 10 cleanest lakes in Illinois. The northwest countryside in Illinois is rolling and beautiful so the drive brings a calming smile on the journey out to the lake.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The view from the deck overlooks Blackhawk bay. The water is tranquil, and the bullfrog croaks are mesmerizing. The air is clean and the skies are so clear that millions of stars can be seen at night. Come take in a relaxing atmosphere and enjoy peacefulness at its finest. The swimming, boating and fishing are top quality throughout the lake. Pontoon boats are available for rent at the marina.
