  • Incredible family friendly home for our last minute accommodations!

    "I don't even know where to begin! We were looking for a place to stay for two nights on our way from NE to NY with our family of 7. It was very last minute (we called from the road and gave only 6 hours advance notice!) Marian was so friendly and wiling to help me in my moment of desperation. Our whole family was amazed when we walked into her lovely home. We have kids ranging in age from 8 months to 11 years and this house was absolutely perfect (and clean!). The moment we walked in the door the kids went straight for the bookshelves where they found the best types of toys, very neat and organized (and easy to put back away when they were done playing). The pictures don't do this home justice. The decor was so much fun and looked like it was done by a professional. It had a fun retro feel. The whole home was so bright and airy, including the basement which was perfect for our kids! It was full of beds on wheels so they had fun pushing them all together for their movie night. We took advantage of the beach chairs and the walk to the beach couldn't have been easier. We had the entire private beach to ourselves and the kids had a blast! I enjoyed lounging in my chair and watching the fun. We enjoyed hotdogs at Depot Hot Dogs (which is surrounded by a lovely park like yard) and my husband and I enjoyed take out from the Miller Bakery Cafe. We look forward to our next stay at the Cool Beach House!"

    "We had a wonderful stay! The views of the lake and Chicago skyline are gorgeous and we enjoyed watching the sunsets each night. The waves during stormy days were also impressive. We enjoyed multiple hikes in the area and also walked to the park each day (5-10 minute walk) for the kids to play while the adults played tennis and basketball. The house is spacious and well appointed. We found everything we needed during the month we rented the home. The kitchen is stocked with just about anything you'd need with top of the line appliances. The game room downstairs is full of fun (foozball, pool, air hockey, golden tee, darts) and there is a ping pong table outside. There are plenty of board games to enjoy as well. Peter (owner) was great to work with and communicated very well with us. He addressed any questions or requests very quickly. He also spent time giving us recommendations on things to do in the area. Peter certainly cares about his guests and their experience in the home. I highly recommend this property for a wonderful stay with family or friends, or as a peaceful getaway to enjoy some nature."

    "This was a beautiful property with an older well maintained home. Farm style atmosphere with no neighbors in site. located right on the edge of town with less then 5 a minute drive to everything. The house was well equipped and has a nice garage. I plan on staying here again soon."
