About Carmel Maloney
Our family has been coming to the Twin Lakes area our entire lives and to Lily Lake for the past 25 years.We bought and renovated our home in 2005.
Carmel Maloney purchased this House in 2005
Why Carmel Maloney chose Burlington
We love the area. It's only an hour from Chicago but you feel like you are a million miles away. The lake is small enough to always be able to see the kids , yet big enough to enjoy all the water sports. We enjoy the many Friday fish fries ,especially at the Red Barn ,after a day of golf at The Twin Lakes Country Club. Antiquing in Richman and shopping in Lake Geneva are family favorites.

Great family vacation!
This house was great for our family vacation. It comfortably slept 7 adults and 4 kids. The beach area was a hit with the kids and the water was clear and great for swimming. We loved our stay!
Thank you for the nice review. So happy you enjoyed your stay!
Perfect for small kids
We stayed here with my parents and 18 month old. The small beach and shallow water were perfect for playing and hanging out in the water. An added bonus is that the large trees provided shade until late afternoon, so we didn't have to worry about the heat or getting too much sun! The house itself was great, plenty of sleeping space and a good size kitchen, but the weather was so nice we spent most of our time outside! Hoping to come back again
Another great time at the Lily Lake house !
This is our second time staying at the Lily Lake house, and have thoroughly enjoyed both stays. The house is setup perfectly for our family of three generations..... spacious kitchen and open dining/living room area on the first floor allows for everybody to be together very comfortably. The bedroom layouts ( 3 upstairs & one on the main floor ) and the amount of beds really works well for us..........and having two bathrooms makes things a lot easier for everybody. The house is well equipped and maintained and very clean. The lake has a sandy bottom and is shallow, which again, is perfect for our little grandchildren. We have found the owners of the house to be very much on top of things and quick with responses to any questions or concerns. All in all, we couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay for our family vacation and highly recommend this house ........... we are hoping we will have the opportunity to stay at this house next year !
Thank you for the nice review! We are so happy your family enjoyed our home. We would love to have your family back next year!
majestic lake view
This vacation house was amazing. The view of the lake was breathtaking. Our kids kept commenting that it felt like home, "only with a lake". Carmel was very responsive and helpful. Perfect vacation home for any family with kids.
Thank you for the nice review. I'm so happy your family enjoyed our home. Look forward to having you back next year.
Enjoy your day,
Great time had by all !
We are a multi-generation family of eleven that includes five grandchildren that range in age from 9 years old to an infant, and found the Lily Lake house to be perfect for our group. The house was extremely clean and well stocked with the essentials you typically would need in your own home. The kitchen and eating area in particular, really worked out well for our family, for the layout and size of the area allowed for all of us to enjoy meals together. The beachfront and shallow, sandy bottom lake was a must for us, and this property checked off all of those boxes. An added bonus was that the little ones could fish off of the pier and have fun with it. One final note was that getting to this site from a northwest suburb of Chicago was a short ride, again, a big plus when dealing with the little ones.
Carmel was wonderful to deal with and her prompt answers to the few inquiries we had made our stay go smoothly and without any issues. Fyi, in the town of Burlington, go to Fred's for great burgers and Adrian's for terrific frozen custard ! All in all, our week vacation at Lily Lake was wonderful and we are all looking forward to another stay next year !!
Our vacation was perfect. The home is beautiful and Carmel was so wonderful to work with. We will definitely be back.
I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay! We look forward to having you back!
Lily Lake is a clean all sport 100 acre lake located 1 hour from Chicago. We are a quiet lake in a rural location yet only 5 miles from the quintessential village of Twin Lakes. A scenic 15 minute drive let's you go antiquing in historic Richmond, IL. Lake Geneva and all it has to offer is only 15 miles away. Truly the best of both worlds!
