About the property

Have a wonderful and relaxing time at this comfortable, well maintained home with a great view. This home is loved by all. Enjoy your morning coffee looking at the lake on the screened porch. Kid's favorite, walk to the marina for ice cream, hike the trails or walk down to the lake and swim. There is a challenging 9 hole golf course with beautiful views.

Nearby Galena offers great shopping, restaurants, and wine tasting. Dubuque is an hour away and has casinos, a museum, and great dining.

Another favorite is hiking Apple Canyon State park.

The week at the lake is always a relaxing and wonderful time with family and friends.

About Will

We have enjoyed ACL for 20 years. It is a family favorite with great memories.

Will purchased this house in 2006

Why Will chose Apple Canyon Lake

We bought at ACL because we wanted to create summer memories for our children and a place to get away from it all. ACL is a very relaxing and beautiful place.

What makes this house unique

We love swimming, hiking, playing golf and ending the busy day with a bon fire in the fire pit! A kid favortie.

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Cozy house was perfect for my wife, daughter, and pup! It was VERY cold the couple days we were there but the house has wonderful windows that keep the cold out and still let you see beautiful scenery. Beautiful waterfall on the way out!

Great Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Apple Canyon Lake this past weekend. The house was very clean and spacious. We also rented Will's pontoon and it worked great to cruise around the lake. Apple Canyon also has a nice pool, marina, and other amenities for use. Overall, this is a great place for a family vacation!

Great location for a nice getaway!

Vacationed with family, and had plenty of room to gather, and to separate for group activities. Near fishing, swimming, exploring; never really bored!

Excellent Family Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second annual family trip to Apple Canyon Lake. This home was clean and spacious. Working with the owners was easy, questions to them were answered very quickly, and they were extremely accommodating. The kitchen is well-equipped and the double oven made cooking for our family very efficient. The fire pit was a joy on a cool summer evening. We used the gas grill for cooking and spread out in the yard for games. My nephew attempted to get through some of the huge video collection, which was also a nice amenity. There is more space to spread out in this house than you realize from the listing and pictures. We will definitely consider this home next summer when returning to ACL. Thank you!!

Fantastic stay!!! Great Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many properties at this resort over the last several years. We all felt that this was the best one we have rented. Will, our host/owner was very accommodating to our every need. Very nice home, view of the lake was great and location was perfect. We will be back.
