Great for a family

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family Thanksgiving. The open plan layout of the kitchen and living room was ideal! It was a nice touch to have the fall table and mantle decorations, plus the Christmas lights on the deck!! Thank you!

Wonderful Stay

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 9 adults, including parents and our grown children with their spouses and partners, spent a fun long weekend at the property in late August 2016. The home and setting is lovely and wonderfully stocked with everything we needed to arrive only with food and then relax, grill and enjoy the rest of our stay.

Shout out to Jet Funn rentals, only minutes away, where we rented boats and jet skis. We spent much of our time on the lake but also enjoyed the gorgeous view from the deck and making s'mores around our evening campfire. A fun respite from our downtown Chicago regular life.

Thanks to Halina for her responsiveness and attention to detail!

Huge house on the lake

  • 5 of 5

This house had plenty of space. The two master bed rooms are great, and the other bedrooms are just fine too. The deck is really large, so there is plenty of space for outdoor living and grilling.

For the boaters out there, the dock is really great. It's deep (~4ft) and if you tie up on the down stream side, you're not banging on the dock. It's a little choppy, but there are tires lining the dock so I wasn't worried. The stairs to access the water are a little steep, so I don't recommend it for older folks or people with bad knees.

Halina was really great to work with. We would definitely return!

Excellent. We enjoyed a comfortable trouble free family get together at this house.

  • 5 of 5

We had a full house plus other guests visiting from time to time. The house accommodated all well, was very clean, spacious, well stocked, quality furniture & appliances, nice deck and well situated on a point on Nippersink lake. The owner is very friendly and encouraged us to call anytime if we should have a problem and/or question.
