About Andrew Huebner

I am 63, engaged and the third generation to own the house. My grand parents bought the property in 1923 which was just a summer home. In 1949 they built the present house moved here from Chicago and retired. As kids my brother and I spent many summers up here with our with our grandparents for which I have many fond memories.

Andrew Huebner purchased this house in 1918

What makes this house unique

This area is rich in history about Chicago gangsters from the 20's. Bugs Moran use to frequent the hotel close by . I have a vague memory of the hotel owner who remarried Morans wife and moved her in the house next door. My father claims he use to play with Bugs' son.

Great Place and Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Andrew was great to work with. He was very responsive to emails and made sure any questions I had were answered. We went up for a weekend in January to relax and do some ice fishing. Being right on the lake was perfect. Woke up and walk right out onto the lake, it couldn't get any easier.

The house was in a great location. Quiet enough away but a quick drive to get dinner. The place was cozy, right from the entry. The rooms were large with plenty of space for luggage without being 'cramped'. I'd love to come back, but maybe in the summer next time.

The cozy house was nicely appointed and walking distance from a couple of great restaurants. Perfect place for a family getaway. We live in Chicago and will definitely make the quick trip back to Andy's house!!

Relaxing stay at Andy's house

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice, relaxing Christmas get-together with our adult children and their spouses - cooking, sitting before the fireplace, watching videos, playing games. The view of the lake is so beautiful, even in winter. It is an older house so a bit drafty, but then it was unusually cold and windy outside on the days we visited. We liked all the interesting art and sculpture. Comfortable beds.

Another Great Sister Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Andrew's cozy home on Lake Como! It is really a delightful place to stay. Even though we had some cold weather, we were happy to be inside visiting and watching movies. Andrew has provided all the entertainment we could have wished for! Highly recommend this house!
