Great house on the lake for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and spacious for our needs. We had a great time bringing our families together for vacation. The owner was very responsive to questions. I would rent again for sure.

This is the second year we have rented here and it is absolutely wonderful. Owner is a pleasure to work with and very welcoming. The house is gorgeous with plenty of room for family and friends. Great location on the water with amazing views and sunsets. We'll definitely be back next year.

Very nice home and setting. The lake access was great.

  • 4 of 5

We all enjoyed our stay. The only drawbacks were a few spiders in the beds and the oven did not work correctly with a gas smell. The large table was a nice feature that allowed us to all eat as a group.

The Mexican restaurant down the hill was very good and the outdoor seating was fun.

Owner's Response: Hi Dan, Thank you for your feedback. We checked on the stove and the problem was fixed imidiately. When comes to spiders we spray the house in and out to keep them out of property as much as we can. Best to you and your family. Halina

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Halina, wanted to say thanks again for the wonderful few days we spent at this house. 8 adults and a toddler and we had a blast. We rented a boat 3 days and docked up to your pier, had fires every evening by the lake and really had an overall great time. Nice easy access to the home when we arrived and also when we left. It was nice to not need to go to an office to check in and out.

Home was nice and clean. Needs a few repairs but overall experience was pleasant. Loved being on the water. Close to town. Would certainly book again.

Looked better in the "staged" photos

  • 2 of 5

The view of Fox Lake was wonderful, however, the house photos on the website do not represent the current state of the home (worn, outdated, tears/stains in furniture, numerous blinds broken, light switches taped down). In addition, there were safety issues that needed to be addressed: only one working smoke/CO detector in entire house (and it was on the floor in a closet); oven did not hold temperature and emitted gas when turned on; no working ice makers in either refrigerator; upstairs windows did not open; patio screen door torn allowing bugs in house; 31 steep rock stairs to the waterfront (which was not in home description); and 3 foot stairwell drop in garage with no railing. In addition, we learned that the house was not registered as a rental with the Village of Fox Lake and as a result, did not have the required safety inspections. Also, be advised that the maximum occupancy is 10 and that doesn't refer to overnight guests, it refers to anyone temporarily visiting while you stay there. (This was recently added to her listing.) My local family came to visit while we were there (not a "party" or an "event") and the property manager kept our entire refundable damage deposit stating "payment for extra (daytime) guests". Even though it's on the water, be sure to pack your own beach towels since there were none available. Nearby Jet Funn was great for boat and hydro-bike rental. Super friendly and accommodating personnel at Jet Funn. We also loved the food from local Italian eatery, Morretti's. Overall, the best part of our visit was sitting on the lakeside patio enjoying a meal and talking with my family (even though it cost us an extra $300 to have them visit!)
