Vacation Delavan Lake Home Description - SLEEPS 1-18

This stunningly decorated and spacious lake house is 3,200 square feet and is on Delavan Lake! It is a private waterfront home on the north shores of spectacular Lake Delavan. It is located 10 minutes away from Lake Geneva - 'the next lake over'.

It has 5 very large bedrooms that include 1 king bed, 3 queen beds, 2 full beds, 2 twin beds and twin bunk beds. Three full baths, eat in kitchen, dining room, family room, sun room with sitting area and a dining area, laundry room and mud room. The home has a lovely wrap around deck that overlooks beautiful Lake Delavan. The deck has a gorgeous umbrella table set with six chairs and two lounge chairs.

There is also a lower covered patio area with lounge chairs and an over sized picnic table that would seat 8 easily. Right near the patio area is a fire pit for roasting marshmallows and hot dogs. You will have your very own private pier to fish from, swim from or simply pull your boat up to. Includes everything you need: linens, washing machine and dryer, gas grill, full kitchen including microwave, dishwasher, toaster, blender, hand mixer, dishes, pots and pans, electric frying pan, utensils, can opener, wine opener etc...etc.

This home truly offers every amenity! The landscape includes many, various perennials, ornamental grasses and mature trees. It is lovely to sit on the deck or lower patio having the morning coffee, lunch or dinner while the boats with tubers and water skiers or sail boats are passing by. It's almost as if they are putting on a show just for you!

Another wonderful feature is the walking path along the lake. It is directly in front of the beautiful homes. You can step right onto it from the lake side of the home and go for a walk along the lake.

No worries if there is a rainy day or if you are staying on Delavan Lake during the cooler months! Just drive right over to Lake Lawn Resort which is less than 3 minutes away and take advantage of their beautiful pool, hot tub and sauna! In the summer the outdoor pools are included too! The Sunday through Thursday, day pass is $5 per day and Friday through Saturday, day pass is $10 per day. They also have the Frontier Restaurant and Look Out Bar to socialize or dine in while you and your family are visiting!

Amazing Vacation on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

I have spent four summers vacationing with my family in this gorgeous home on Lake Delavan. The home is beautiful, very clean, comfortable furnishings (including beds!!), and the decorating is outstanding. The home is in a great location close to restaurants and shops. We also enjoy the amazing pier on the lake and having bon fires at night with the fire pit on the premises. We will no doubt be going back next summer!

Great home for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the home on Delavan Lake! We were there between Christmas and New Year's Day. The space was perfect for our 12-16 (two babies), four-generation family gathering. The two main-floor bedrooms were especially good for my senior parents, and for us, and then the kids and grandkids had the upstairs. When the young kids went to bed, the grown-ups still had the main floor spaces for games, movies, etc. The set-up on the main floor is especially nice as there are several areas for smaller groups doing puzzles, playing games, eating, or just visiting. The view is wonderful and I would love to come back in the summer.

I appreciate that the kitchen is so well stocked with pots and pans, utensils and dishes. It was also nice to have wine glasses available.

You were great to work with and we appreciate the later checkout on New Year's Day. The house was so clean and pretty and Juana was very nice and responsive. I like how you carried the beach house theme throughout the whole house. I received the check returning our security deposit promptly. Thank you for that. I would be happy to recommend the house on Delavan Lake to potential guests, and we may be back ourselves.

Thanks for such a lovely place at which to create family memories. Happy New Year!

Peaceful, Calming, Restful and sooo Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of medical providers that stayed in The Delavan Lake Home for a few days. We absolutely loved the beautiful and spacious home! We never felt crowed! The beds were very comfortable. The home was extremely clean. The kitchen well stocked. There was more than enough towels etc. The location was a huge hit! Very close to Lake Geneva and down town Delavan! Also, many stores and restaurants you can walk to or drive to within minutes. Being on the lake was great and the views were amazing! We also, loved the walking path in front of the house along the lake! We will be coming back to this great home during the summer of 2018!! Can't wait!!!

Wonderful home in Lake Delavan

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here to celebrate my moms 90th Birthday it was a fabulous time!!!! The home is beautiful plenty of room. I didn't think the pictures didn't give it justice the kitchen is much larger then it appears. There is also a beautiful dining room table that can sit a large group. The lake views are amazing!!! we only wished that we could have spent a longer time. The home is SPOTLESS and the bedrooms off the kitchen were wonderful for my mom who can't do the stairs... We will definitely try to come back again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the beautiful review you gave on The Delavan Lake Home!! We sincerely appreciate it. I agree the pictures do not do the home justice. The home is much larger than you can really capture with a photo. We work very hard to make sure our guests are very happy. We know how precious family time is, especially in this fast paced world we all live in. I am so happy you liked the new dining room table too. We must get a picture of it on the website. It is a beautiful table that seats up to 10. Thank you again for this review. It lets us know that we are doing our job as we should be.

Perfect Winter Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 14 so enjoyed staying at this little bit o' heaven on Delavan Lake. With a recent death in our family we were looking to find refuge from the holiday rush but because of the warmth and welcoming atmosphere of this home we truly had a wonderful time. We went to Alpine skiing, went bowling and experienced a magic show in town that entertained the young and old of us. The rest of the time we were able to spread out, with plenty of space for all of us to play games, read, enjoy a movie, and most importantly, to share stories and enjoy each other's company. The beds were comfy, the kitchen well-equipped for some pretty awesome dishes, and the view spectacular. We hope to rent again in the summer to utilize the fire pit, the walking path, the beautiful yard and see the summer version of a mesmerizing view. In short, we absolutely loved our Delavan experience!

Love this perfect lakefront home! Repeat guests!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time staying at the Delavan Lake Home. We had an absolutely brilliant time! Location, Location, Location! The home is located right on the lake. We took walks every day along the walking path that runs along the lake. There is a marina along the path. They serve a nice lunch menu. It has inside tables and out side umbrella tables. If you don't want to stay you can stop in to pick up drinks or ice cream bars for the kids while on your walk. The house is located in the middle of Lake Geneva and Down Town Delavan. There is plenty to do in both towns; shopping, antiques, restaurants, cafe's, pubs, coffee shops, beach, boat rentals, etc. The home it self is gorgeous. The decorating has been done very well with emphasis on lake side living; sea gulls, lighthouses, seashells, palm trees, fish, fishermen...Just beautiful! It is also extremely clean. Hotel quality no doubt about it. This last time were 14 in total but in the past we have had up to 18 people. No problem at all. The home is very large with plenty of room for everyone. The bedrooms are large and the mattresses very comfortable. There are a total of 3 tables on the main level. Outside on the deck there are 2 umbrella tables and on the lower patio there is an oversized picnic table. The bon fire is great at night. We all enjoyed it but the kids especially loved making s'mores! Fishing was terrific too and having your own private pier can't be beat. Maureen the home owner was great. Very attentive to all questions. Very easy to work with. The security deposit was back within 3 days of our departure. We would highly recommend this home. In fact we plan to be back this summer for a week. Can't Wait!!

About The Owner

Hello my name is Maureen. I am from Oak Lawn, Illinois and now live in Lockport, Illinois with my husband and children. It has been my absolute pleasure and privilege to manage The Delavan Lake Home for the last 10 years. We bought this home in 2001 and worked very hard in transforming it to the home of our dreams. We remodeled the home and have decorated the home as well. We used it regularly for several years. Today we still use the home but we rent it as well. We found as our children got older they have a lot less free time. We thought of selling but we love the home and the area so much we decided we would rent during the times we were not using the home. This has worked out very well for our family. We stay at the home at least once a month. We also visit the home to check on it. We are always amazed at how well all of our guests take care of the home. Every time we go to the home we always add something new; sheets, comforters, towel, pictures, furniture etc. It has been a labor of love and we have many repeat visitors each year. We hope that you will enjoy your time at The Delavan Lake Home as much as we do!!!

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Delavan Lake

We choose this property because of the amazing views of the lake! We also loved the house. It is very spacious even all of the bedrooms are big. You can have large groups and not feel crowded. We also were very aware that there is no street parking on the lake and this was one of the few homes that could accommodate at least 12 to 16 cars. We also liked that this home was on the walking path of the lake.

What makes this house unique

Large home that accommodates 3 to 4 families at a time. It is directly on the lake. It is on the walking path. It is walking distance to a few pub grub restaurants. It can accommodate 12-16 cars. It has a great lay out and decorated very well. It is run by the owners and no one is going to care more about a home than the owners of the home themselves.
