About Phil

Thanks for checking out our vacation rental home. We are from Chicago but love escaping the city in between rentals to enjoy our cottage throughout the year. My family has shared many memories in this home on the lake and I hope our guests enjoy it just the same and make their own memories.

Phil purchased this house in 1995

What makes this house unique

Beautiful lake views throughout the house. Just steps to the beach or relax and take in the view from the deck.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for a wonderful opportunity to make great family memories!

The location was great especially for young kids! The beach is just perfect a few steps away across the street. Tons of space in the place and plenty of sleeping room for guests. The deck has the best view on the street. Beach chairs and sand toys were a plus so was the fuse ball, air hockey, puzzles and games. I would definitely come back and recommend. Only down side was we had to make the beds ourselves upon arrival and then wash dry and put away all of the bedding and linens used before we left which took a few hours. In the last few properties we've rented, beds we're ready and we just had to strip them at the end of our stay and put the dirty laundry downstairs. There were only 2 rolls of toilet paper, no dish soap, can opener, bottle opener or strainer so remember to bring yours!! Overall great stay!!!

Well-appointed, comfortable house

  • 4 of 5

The house is clean and well-appointed with every amenity you could want! The kitchen is well-stocked, the beds and couches are super comfortable, and the patio furniture on the deck is great to relax on. The only downside of our stay was being asked the day before checkout to leave an hour earlier than the stated checkout time (to allow that time for the cleaning crew), which made our final morning somewhat hectic. I would stay again!
