Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We were both born in Kankakee County and raised in Manteno. We like it 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!

Why the Owner Chose Manteno, IL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Bluegill Bungalow is a quaint cottage in a lovely setting. It is wthin walking distance of our Main Street businesses to the south, and to the Manteno Sportmans's Club to the north. There are beautiful birds, ducks and 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!
