Big rooms, comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchen, including two dishwashers, two ovens and ample bar wear allowed the chef's in our group to prepare gourmet meals. Indoor fire, outdoor grill and plenty of screened porches helped us enjoy the outdoors and embrace the winter. Only wished there was snow. Mike is a terrific owner, very responsive. We especially liked that there were sitting areas to gather without TVs! House sleeps 14 comfortably and could do more as the basement is huge. A surprise was the tastefully decorated Christmas tree that made our gathering perfect. Already recommended to friends. We also liked that we could unplug, as only weak cell signals for most of us, so everyone put them away for the gathering. Big tv in basement provided sports and movie fix for those in need. Lovely creek in back and we enjoyed walking the property. Felt much more isolated that it really is, also a bonus if you want to feel like you are away. Really only a short drive from chicago makes this an ideal location for a group getaway. We have stayed now at 6 places with our group and this was our favorite.
We loved our stay, the house was perfect for 6 adults and 4 kids. Kids loved the pool/skiball table and hot tub. Everything was immaculately clean, which is so nice for a rental. The owner was gracious and very accommodating. It rained one day and we went to Sunset bowling and had a wonderful time! Bittersweet ski resort was nice too! I highly recommend this property for your family getaway. My only suggestion is buy groceries before as the closest grocery store was 30 minutes away but it was worth the drive. You will not be disappointed.
