Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: My family and I grew up vacationing in Northern Illinois and Wisconsin, but over time as resorts closed we found it incredibly difficult to find a place where the family could get together and bring our pets. Ever since we visited Lake Geneva 20 years ago, we've been going back to vacation as often as we can. As our family grew, we also found Lake Geneva to be the perfect place to take the kids. They couldn't get enough of the lake and all the fun area activities. They were amazed the first time we took them horse back riding and skiing on the lake - they said, 'Cool, it's like having our very own gigantic playground!' There was no question we had to invest in our own 'Near the Lake Home', and we’re confident you’ll enjoy the area as much as we have.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's the perfect destination and distance to travel from Chicago. After leaving after rush hour and pulling in the driveway 1 1/2 hours later we are always able to make the Friday night fish Fry with plenty of time to spare. The house, located on the wooded south shore, is ideal for relaxing and watching nature or if the need arises for some day or night fun - you are only five minutes from downtown Lake Geneva or Fontana. It offers the best of both worlds; peace and quiet at home and with many activities and nightlife nearby.
