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 Illinois

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.

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.

Thank you for letting us share your home. We had a wonderful weekend. The kids loved the bunk beds. We used the pool and ate at the golf pro shop. We would go back again.

The house was large and clean and fully equipped with everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay and just a 5 minute drive to the beach. There is just a 5 minute walk to the store. Coming from the city it was so very peaceful and I would recommend this property. I only wish there was wifi and we had very low signals on our phones but then again we were forced to enjoy our weekend without answering work emails so kind of a blessing. I would definitely stay here again.
