About Owner/Manager

I bought this property in 1990 and it had a 2 bedroom cabin with no interior walls, had electricity and plumbing but no heat source for the cold winters. It also had an outhouse by the garage that subsequently had to be removed during this renovation. The cabin was basic but my family and I enjoyed many summers enjoying the lake and the community. The dream was always to build a new home on the large lot for our enjoyment and that dream has now become a reality.

We welcome sharing our dream with you, your family, and/or friends!

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 1990

Why Owner/Manager chose Delavan Lake

We would love to share our property with others who enjoy the Delavan Lake area and all it has to offer, the hours on the lake boating, swimming or fishing in the summer or skiing or ice-fishing in the winter.

I am very willing to work with interested future guests to eliminate the additional service fee that are being charged to my guests by VRBO. Please ask me about payiment options that will not incur the VRBO additional fee.

What makes this house unique

The home is located on a very large lot that has a large fenced in area to allow your four footed friend to come and enjoy the vacation with you. It also provides ample space to park 2-3 boats on the property as well as enjoy a night fire roasting marshmallows over the fire pit. There is a city launch at the end of the street available to launch your boat or other water sports equipment. There is a another private launch approximately 4 blocks away or the city launch about 15 minutes away.

Great place for Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I booked our Christmas holiday at Champaign Toast and it was a wonderful experience. It was very easy to book and communication with the owner was great prior to our trip. The information regarding the house and area was perfect. They had the house nicely decorated for Christmas which was a pleasant surprise to all of us. The house does need a few updates but there were no complaints from any of us. If we decide to do another Christmas getaway in the area again we will most likely book again!

Eh...it was ok

  • 2 of 5

We spent our Thanksgiving on the property.

When we arrived the door would not open with the code we were given. I called the owner and she answered right away (thank God). After a little back and forth we were able to get in. Not the best start to our stay there.

It was a nice little house. We found many things that were in need of repair or updating. The beds were past their prime and probably need to be replaced. The kitchen was missing some basic items that you would expect to find in a stocked kitchen. The paint was chipped behind every chair and all along the breakfast bar wall. The tree has large branches that are ready to fall off...looks very dangerous!

The owner required a $500 deposit for damages. The process to get the rental agreement and deposit was cumbersome and we were charged a fee for using a credit card via Paypal for the deposit. I can see having the information in case there was damage, but we were charged, then it was refunded (less the $15 fee)

We enjoyed our time with our family here, however, I think we will look at other properties next time. A little attention to this property would do it a world of good.

Owner's Response: I appreciate all reviews, what my guests liked and what recommendations they have that would have made their stay more enjoyable. Since I open up Champaign Toast for other's enjoyment unfortunately there is additional wear and tear on the furniture and walls. I will be painting the interior walls in September of this year in preparation of my daughter's wedding at Champaign Toast. This guest chose to pay the $500.00 Refundable Security Deposit with a credit card via PayPal. It clearly states on the rental agreement that if the guests uses a credit card via PayPal there is an additional 2.9% +$0.30 charge via PayPal. I received $485.00 via PayPal(minus the 2.9% +$0.30 charge)as their security deposit and returned $485.00 to the guests after their departure. Owner

Lovely Weekend Stay!

  • 4 of 5

It is a lovely home. Very comfortable. Great fireplace! Lovely porch with gas grill, and ample seating. Nice fire pit and seating in the front yard. Quiet area with friendly people all around.

It was cold that weekend and the furnace wasn't working. The owner took care of the problem right away - sent out a repairman and all was toasty and bright. There were six of us and we were all very comfortable. Definitely on the list of places to return in the future.

Given the name "Champagne Toast" I was hoping for a bottle of champagne upon arrival. Maybe next time. LOL!

Lovely Home in Quiet Neighborhood Next to Lake

  • 5 of 5

Nice tall ceilings with an entire wall of windows, fireplace, cozy loft, well-stocked kitchen, plenty of space for 5 people + baby + 2 dogs. Would book again :)

Home is well appointed and lovely in many respects, but has been neglected.

  • 1 of 5

First impression was positive. Then when we started unpacking we saw the cobwebs and slimy shower curtains. Towel bars and toilet paper holders were falling off the walls. We never were able to hang towels. We took the dogs outside and couldn't take 2 steps w/o stepping in dog droppings. Stooping to pick up the droppings with our "pooper scooper" was too tedious. Finally we went to the hardware store and bought a shovel so that we could make the yard usable. We chose the house for its fenced yard for the dogs. The next day they got out. Numerous places along the base of the fence were shoved out . We picked up rocks and debris to try to block the openings but several more times they escaped. Finally, we secured all the holes (or at least the dogs didn't escape again.) I did send an e-mail to the owner about the lack of cleanliness and filthy yard and her response was that she would alert her "cleaning team." No apology or anything. Maybe she couldn't do anything about it at the moment, but some expression of regret for our concerns might have mitigated my criticism. We also reserved the house for 10 people as that is what the house is advertised to accommodate. True there are spaces for 10 to sleep but you would be hard pressed to feed 10. It's doubtful there was 10 of anything in the dish department. Small pans were OK but larger pans were all missing handles. The owner needs to take charge and put things in proper order and function. We loved the quiet neighborhood and enjoyed the eating places nearby.

Just what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Champagne Toast was wonderful. Kathy made the process simple and clear. She was quick to respond and completely honest. After looking at many homes on a Home Away, we settled for this one and we could not have been more pleased.
