About Cynthia Busse
As a Licensed Real Estate Broker in Illinois for over 28 years, I have seen a lot of homes, but this one is truly unique, and we have found that owning this home has been such a gift. The history is so unique and the character is so abundant. We are in a place where we are lucky enough to be able to share our experience with others and have chosen to do so. We hope that when you come here to visit you will be taken back in time and your visit here will become a fun adventure in itself. The surroundings are beautiful the experience unique. In our years of travel we have seen many B&B's, private homes and Inns and would hope that this would live up to all of your expectations.
Cynthia Busse purchased this House in 2006
Why Cynthia Busse chose Lemont
Of course, the beautiful city of Chicago is a short distance away and the attractions there are endless. We are also minutes away from the world famous Cog Hill Golf Course where the BMW Golf Championship Tournament is played. Water Fall Glen, 5 minutes away, is excellent for hiking and biking! The historic and quaint "downtown" area of Lemont is a sweet place to walk around and explore. If the yard isn't enough, there are two parks that are walking distance from this home so the little ones can have fun and get some fresh air!
What makes this House unique
Our Atrium is a beautiful place to sit and relax. The squirrels and the birds are right outside all the windows and no mosquitoes! Our Library with it's French Chandelier is another place to get lost for a day, and read a book, or play a game of checkers. After a long day, coming home and having this fully equipped kitchen to prepare a meal in, can be a nice trade off to a restaurant meal.

An amazing place for family to reconnect and not have modern distractions.
Everybody was quite pleased with the ambiance and feel of the home. We were in Lockport for our Mom's memorial. She loved to sew and would have loved the decor of this home. The family reconnected and it was great for a small gathering after the memorial. We found out our last night, there were only electronics on the second floor, never missed. It was perfect! Everyone communicated, or played games in one of the many rooms on the first floor. Family came from all over and they all complimented the home and how functional and amazing it was. We felt at home, mom would have loved it. The kitchen, where everyone gathers, was just as great whether for meals or socializing.
The owner is amazing and responsive to any questions or concerns. You can't go wrong with this home. The only thing that could have been better, was to stay in the spring or summer, then we could have enjoyed the grounds more!
Beautiful home with amazing history. Loved it!
I rented the Singer Mansion during Christmas. The home was beautiful and spacious, decorated for the season, and was furnished with amazing historical pieces. My wife and I were looking for a place in the Chicago area for my family to gather in order to spend the holidays together, and this home could not have been more perfect!. It was lovely, and the owner was great. While in town, we also celebrated our first grand child's Christening. It was truely a wonderful time made better by the accommodations.
I would recommend the Singer Mansion to anyone who is looking for a large space with character and charm.

A great space for family to connect
This beautiful and historic property had great spaces for our family's visit to The Chicago area. It accommodated the oldest and youngest of our group with room to spare. The big, breezy porch was my Dad's favorite spot, while the openness of the kitchen dining area made it possible to cook and visit at the same time. The upstairs rec/play room was great for morning yoga and movie night. Thanks for sharing this home with us.
I'm so happy that you all had a sweet time with you Dad!!
We are honored that you chose The Singer Mansion for this special time !!
Wishing him many more special birthdays !
Wow what a great place to call home on a holiday
BBQ'd on the patio, watched the fireflys on the porch in the evening, enjoyed morning coffee in the sunroom and relaxed in the library. After a busy day in the city this place is heaven!!! Restaurants are some of the best anywhere and only minutes away. What a great home and can not say enough about the owners, such amazing people.
Thanks so much for your kind words Gerald !!
It was a pleasure to have you!
