My husband and I and 2 other couples get together every year to catch up and relax. We are spread out across the US and like to try a new place each time. We decided we wanted to be near Chicago this time and we are VERY pleased with our choice. We've been doing this now since 2010 and this place was the group favorite.
What an amazing space, well decorated, and full of ALL creature comforts! It was a comfortable size and even though the upstairs bathroom is shared, we didn’t mind, since it can be easily locked, plus it’s so darn cool! The kitchen had just about everything needed, including a crock pot and blender!
It was a very relaxing trip and Hilary and her staff really went the extra mile to ensure all the bases were covered. One night the internet went out and someone came over right away to fix it!
Tanya met us on site and had a fire going already. Everything was really clean and easy to find and use. We downloaded the App which gave us good local recommendations. The views from the decks were gorgeous of lake Michigan and the surrounding parkland. Access to the beach was easy and down a short dune path.
Since it’s the middle of winter, the wind off the lake was fierce, but we went on several hikes and coming back to a roaring fire was a real blessing. We even used the hot tub a couple of times despite the cold weather!
There were so many other unique touches that we didn’t expect, firewood, ozone laundry, really cool cabinet and deck lights, heated bathroom floors, board games, and free coffee! WiFi was fast enough to all watch what we wanted on the TVs.
Thank you very much Hilary for providing such an inviting and thoughtful space for our yearly get-together!
