Overview

About the property

Lakeside, Two Bedroom, 2 Bath Home With Office. Sleeps 6.

This beautiful lakefront property is a 'home away from home' and perfect for travelers doing business in the area. Why stay at a hotel when you can have all the luxuries of home with a beautiful view?

Our cottage is fully stocked with linens, dishes, utinsels and everything you would need to cook your own meals. The tastefully decorated home has an office with desk, printer, and wi-fi. There are 2 tvs in the house with Comcast cable service. The back yard has a beautiful view of the little lake. You can fish from the deck, and be sure to catch at least a bluegill! The neighborhood is peaceful and the people who live here are friendly. We are proud of our small town and its amenities. There is an antique shop just a few blocks from our property. We have 2 hometown diners that each serve excellent homemade breakfast, and lunch. You'll like it so much that this will become your favorite retreat from big city life.The beds are comfy and the leather furniture in the family room is an added feature. There is a Weber grill on the patio. You can grill your supper while listening to the birds and the bullfrogs!

About Annette LaMore

We were both born in Kankakee County and raised in Manteno. We like it here so much that we have never left our home town. We are volunteers in the community and help manage the Manteno Golf Club & Learning Center. We have been honored at St. Joseph Church as Family of the Year, and in our community as 'Citizens of the Year' in 2012. Both of us are retired from our careers (chemist and mailcarrier) and enjoy hosting people from all over the world at our vacation rentals. We hope you'll choose Manteno for your next get-away!

Annette LaMore purchased this bungalow in 2000

Why Annette LaMore chose Illinois

Our property is a perfect spot for rest and relaxation. it is located on a dead end street in a small town, on a beautiful lake. It is peaceful in our neighborhood. You will enjoy walking through our small town and visiting one of our many beautiful parks. Bluegill Bungalow was once home to my husband's parents. We bought it from their estate because we live nearby and we loved the idea of owning a rental, especially because it is convenient for us to care for it.

What makes this bungalow unique

Bluegill Bungalow is a quaint cottage in a lovely setting. It is within walking distance of our Main Street businesses to the south, and to the Manteno Sportmans's Club to the north. There are birds, ducks, geese, bullfrogs, turtles, and, of course, lots of good fishing...especially bluegills! Your hosts are welcoming and accommodating. You will remember your stay as one of the best you've experienced!

Owner's Response: Thanks go out to William for his great revue! We are so glad to have such wonderful guests! We happen to be located close to a lot of good venues, including Camp Shawanasee, Kankakee River State Park, Perry Farm, Olivet Nazarene University, and Kankakee Community College. Chicago is just a 45 mile drive north. All of our guests enjoy the peaceful lakefront property in a small town surrounded by corn and bean fields! Thank you! Rondy and Annette

Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

It was nice to have two houses near to each other for our family of nine. They were both nice and worked well for our needs. The view of the lake was relaxing and we spent one day enjoying hanging out on the chairs near the lake. We had a place to hang out, play cards and grill burgers together. About the same price as motel rooms but much more comfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you to Paula and her family for their very nice comments! We currently have 3 vacation rentals available which works well with multiple families who come to our area. We plan to add another vacation home this fall, for a total of 4 cottages, all in our immediate area around the lake! Manteno is a nice little town, close to the big city of Chicago, which is just 45 minutes north on I-57, and just a short drive from Bourbonnais, Bradley, and Kankakee to the south. Thank you again for choosing out cottages! We look forward to your next visit! Annette and Rondy LaMore

Great house! Great town!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great! My husband and I and our kids split the rental with my sister and her husband, so it was cheaper than staying in a hotel and much easier with the kids. There was plenty of room for everyone, and the kids slept in their sleeping bags in the office which is at the front of the house and away from the kitchen and family room. The bedrooms are a bit small, but they have giant walk-in closets, so you won't be tripping over your luggage. We loved the yard and the lake behind the house, and Manteno is a very nice, quiet town. I would highly recommend this property! If we are in the area again we will be staying there! The house is a lot bigger than it looks in the pictures!

Wonderful place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxing Memorial Day weekend here at Bluegill Bungelow. A welcoming note along with delicious banana bread greeted us when we arrived. The house was spotless and comfortable. We especially enjoyed spending time on the patio relaxing. Thanks so much.
