Our home located at the top of the Chain O' Lakes on Lake Catherine serves as an aquatic mecca for summer leisure auch as boating, skiing, tubing, kayaking, fishing, paddle boarding and cruising; while hunting, skiing, tubing, ice fishing and snowmobiling abound during the winter months. Less than an hour from Chicago and Milwaukee, it makes the ideal destination for a long weekend of relaxation or a full week of fun-filled adventure.
Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: My husband and 3 children have enjoyed Lake Catherine since 2005. We built our dream lake house in 2011 and have entertained numerous friends and families throughout the years capturing lots of beautiful family memories.
Why the Owner Chose Antioch, IL, USA:
The western sunsets are stunning over the tranquil lake. Its location is easy to get to from Chicago and affords city dwellers some relaxing moments chilling on a lounge chair or adventurous times enjoying water sports. Situated at the top of the Chain O'Lakes, we have the deepest freshest water and less boat traffic than other areas.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The layout of the home is conducive to large family gatherings in open inviting areas or several private retreats in separate wings of the home or 3 outdoor living environments with breathtaking views of the sparkling lake, majestic oak trees and abundant wildlife.
