Our home is beautifully decorated for the holidays including a gorgeous Christmas tree and it is the perfect place for you and your loved ones to spend Christmas together.
Welcome to our family or friends get-away lakefront retreat which accommodates 2-3 families and sleeps up to 10 individuals. With 3.5 bathrooms, there is plenty of "bathroom privacy" unlike other vacation homes that sleep 10-15 individuals with just 2 bathrooms.
Young children are welcome and we have a full size crib in the master bedroom and a high chair in the kitchen. We recently redecorated our home with high end furniture and new Pottery Barn bedding which gives you a true "home-away-from-home" feeling.
Our home offers you the opportunity to escape the hectic city for the fun filled lakefront lifestyle with a private pier perfect for fishing and swimming. You can have the best of all worlds as our home is centrally located just 15 minutes from the wonderful Lake Geneva activities while you have the serenity of Lake Delavan awaiting you upon your return. Our home has convenient access to grocery shopping (Super Walmart, Piggy Wiggly and Aldi's) which is 5 minutes away.
Our home is set on a hill with 100 year oak trees in our lushly landscaped front yard while the rear of the home has a 180 degree panoramic view of Lake Delavan. There is a large deck with patio furniture and a large Weber gas grill where you can watch the sun rise and set over the lake. During the day, you can relax on the deck and grill out while watching your children swim in the lake.
If you have a boat, you can launch it at the nearby neighborhood marina which is just a one minute walk and dock it at our pier (limit of one boat please). If you would like to rent a pontoon boat, I have arranged with the marina for a special discounted multi-day rate on their 24 foot pontoon boat, which is available on a "first come first serve" basis (they also have fishing boats and a power boat for rent). We also have a two person kayak and two paddle boards for your enjoyment.
As a perfect ending to your fun filled day, you can watch the moonlight glisten on the shimmering water in complete solitude while enjoying your favorite beverage. Adding to the ambience, you can sit in Adirondack chairs around our new gas fire pit which overlooks the lake and make s'mores and roast marsh mellows.
You will park your cars in our spacious driveway ( we can accommodate up to 5 cars depending on size) and then walk up the long curving sidewalk through our secluded yard with the many 100+ year old oak trees. You will then enter our cozy home which is well-apppointed to maximize the pleasure of family gatherings while ensuring individual privacy.
When you walk into our home, you will see our large recently updated and well-equipped kitchen which has all the amenities that you would have in your own home. Next to the kitchen is a large dining area. Adjacent to the dining area is a spacious family room with a gas fireplace and windows on three sides which provide spectacular south, west and east lake views. From the family room, you can walk out onto the large elevated deck which has the Weber gas grill and patio furniture with a large rectangular umbrella shade.
Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms with Pottery Barn bedding and 2 full baths. In the very large master bedroom with a cathedral ceiling and which has an elevated 2 sided lake view, there is a king bed, full baby crib, large closets and a private master bath with standup shower. The other two bedrooms each have queen beds (one of these bedrooms has a nice lake view) and they share the adjacent full bathroom which has a shower over the tub.
In the English basement, we have furnished it to be the perfect 'hangout', especially if you have children that want their own space (and which you will be very glad to provide them with!) There is a large rec room with a 49 inch LED smart TV, a foosball table and a futon which can sleep 2 individuals. In a separate area with its own door is a large bedroom with bunk beds (a twin bed and a full bed) along with a full bathroom including a standup shower.
We have high speed internet (true 60 meg download) and cable with HBO and Showtime. We also have great central A/C as well.
You can be assured that we are experienced vacation home owners who meet the needs of our guests based on our 4.95 rating with over 25 reviews as well as a 4.9 rating (based on over 50 reviews) on another home we previously rented on VRBO. We know that you want to have a stress free vacation in an exceptionally clean and well appointed home and and we will ensure that everything we control is done timely and correctly.
We do allow, on a case-by-case basis, one small (less than 25 pounds) well behaved non-water dog. If you feel your furry child meets this criteria, please call us to discuss this further. We do charge a $25/day pet fee and a refundable $200 pet security deposit.
Please note that our home is in an area where our neighbors are in close proximity and we want to ensure that our neighbors' ability to enjoy their tranquility is not impeded. NO HOUSE OR BACHELOR/ETTE PARTIES ARE ALLOWED. If you are planning this type of activity, do not rent this home as you will lose your entire $500 security deposit if we determine that you have rented our home under false pretenses.
