Why Margaret Murphy chose Lake Villa
It was bought as a family retreat back in 1970. It is a very special place hard to believe it is only an hour drive from Chicago.

More space than you can imagine!
Our grand-kids called it the mansion and there was certainly room for all 17 of us. It was perfect for a family reunion!
We had a blast celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary.

Property was fantastic. The golf course, Lake, pool, and other items provided an amazing and relaxing time for our group.
Awesome for extended family
We had a large family with ages 8 to 84 years old. The availability of the pool, the golf, the many porches and the tennis court gave us lots of room to have outdoor activities. There are a number of 'gathering places' indoors and out that let us have smaller group conversations and get some quiet time when needed. The kitchen has lots of dishes and pots and pans and a Viking cooktop and stove if you are cooking.
They were 2 very minor repairs that the handyman took care of within hours.
The golf course is at the 'muni course' level. We played many games of best ball and had participants of all capabilities. There are several sets of old clubs there but I suggest that you bring your own if you like to play. No need for a driver!
There are grocery stores, restaurants and other activities within a very short drive. However, the property faces the lake and is extremely quiet and restful. A nice combo of retreat and convenience.
The teenagers went to Six Flags and were able to Uber home.
We used the tennis court for pickle ball games.
The rooms are very clean and well set up with many ensuite bathrooms. The kitchen could use a good deep clean which I have told the manager about.
