About Ned Reece
We are a family of 5 from Chicago and have enjoyed 10 wonderful years at our Blue House get-away. As our kids head to college, we have decided to share our wonderful home with others who need a restful getaway. The best part of the house is floating in the pool at night and looking at all the stars -- it's amazing how many you see when you don't have to compete with the city lights.
Ned Reece purchased this House in 2006
Why Ned Reece chose Lakeside
We are on an off the beaten path, private lane but still close to the beautiful sandy shores of Lake Michigan ....a 10 minute walk or quick bike ride. The in-ground pool is surrounded by tall trees so the backyard feels very private. The first floor of the house has a large entertaining area with skylights and vaulted ceilings. Sliding glass doors open up right onto the deck and the pool for easy access and visibility. Great for a summer bbq on the deck. Gas grill, hammock and two large yards for badminton, bocce ball or horseshoes.
What makes this House unique
Beach toys, yard games and bikes included. Even a "burley" for small kids to ride behind bikes. The house has lots of ceiling fans and is fully air conditioned. Pool and screened porch are awesome summertime assets

We spent a week in July here, first a girls' weekend and then my family came up for the remaining time. The house is great, good layout, all amenities are there and the pool is amazing. You can swim all night if so inclined because the water is so warm. A great stay and hope to visit again next year! By the way, the owners are wonderful to work with and extremely responsive to everything.
We LOVED the house!
We were amazed at the layout and the ease of having several people in the house. Very clean, stocked with anything we needed and well-decorated. The owners were responsive to our questions and easy to contact. Thanks for a great vacation Ned and Mary!
More than we expected.
The house was in a quiet location and the pool added great value! Great house for families with kids. We spent a lot of time on the porch and patio. Would definitely rent again.
Great family getaway; a spot for everyone!
We loved our time together staying at this peaceful and relaxing vacation retreat. The open floor plan on the first level was just perfect. Such a beautiful setting. We loved the screened porch, heated pool and spacious kitchen/dining areas. This made entertaining our extended family quite easy. The side yard was great for bags games and bubble time (for our grandson). The screened porch was the best place for late night card games with cousins. The pool was always a nice spot to unwind at the end of each busy day.
Customer service was excellent. Rental was available on time. Home is very family friendly. The heated pool was are families most enjoyable activity during our stay. I short walk to Watch the sunset over Lake Michigan was beautiful. The open kitchen with two sinks made meal preparations and family entertaining easy and engaging. Our teens enjoyed having their own space (loft), which the adults also enjoyed. Plenty of room for everyone to relax.
