We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation in this peaceful, wooded home!

  • 4 of 5

This lovely home is beautifully appointed with all amenities. We hoped to see a bit more of the lake, but the surrounding woods were beautiful. Very quiet with time for reconnecting. Charming little town nearby with quaint shops and restaurants. Rented a pontoon on the lake with a scenic tour at our own pace. Lovely way to get away not far from the Chicago area. Remember bug spray!

House was clean and had everything we needed for the stay

  • 4 of 5

It was just my husband, myself, our 1 year old daughter and our dog so the house was more than big enough. Our dog loved the property, I think she ran 20 miles a day chasing chipmunks and squirrels. Our daughter ate handfuls of wild blackberries from the bushes! We brought tubes for the adults and a floaty for our daughter and we all enjoyed getting wet in the lake.

Great place to rest and relax!

We had a great time at this property. The area was really nice, and the house was decent size and clean. Loved the amount of firewood the owners left for us to use for the bonfire

Very nice!

We enjoyed our stay. The welcome basket was a nice touch. The home was stocked with games and even a picnic basket which was nice. The area is beautiful and the lake is clean and quiet.

Beautiful and Peaceful!

  • 4 of 5

This home worked out great for my wife and I, her brother and his wife, and their thirty year old son. Three beautiful nights of relaxation after busy days. The home was extremely clean and well stocked with the basic necessities. There were two minor issues: the pocket door on the bathroom did not work well and was noisy and the grill (which we used) could use some replacement parts or be replaced. A great place to hang out and I would recommend it to anyone.

Owner's Response: We thank our recent guest for the positive comments and letting us know about the items that need attention. We appreciate it when guests let us know about items they found. The sliding door has been fixed. We looked at it after we received the email from our guest. It needed an adjustment so that it moves easily. We will look at the grill and see what needs to be addressed. We do not notice somethings like the grill unless brought to our attention. We did check out the grill and decided to replace it. There is now a new grill at the house. Again we thank you for the comments so that we can make sure all our guests have a great stay at our lake home.

Quiet, peaceful, private

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely spot on a beautiful, quiet lake.

This home has plenty of room for relaxing.... indoors and out.

Kitchen was well-stocked with any plates, cups, glasses, utensils or cooking/grilling aids you might need.

We had an 11 month old who was always on the go and there were many decorations/distractions on the floor and on the tabletops that had to be moved up or out into the garage.

We were fortunate enough to borrow a couple kayaks and a standup paddle board from a relative on a nearby lake which were a wonderful addition to our experience.

This place is a gem!
