We showed up with a fairly large group of 25-30 years olds (about 11 of us) and 2 dogs. Everything was clean on arrival and as promised. Deck was huge and fit us all perfectly. The kitchen was full of basic necessities for cooking that we didn't expect to have. And of course... fires on the beach + the awesome pontoon boat made the weekend. A little bit of fishing/ bbq'ing/ swimming (after finding a spot without seaweed) - all a great time. City nearby has all the basic necessities and the organic farm has a fantastic selection of meat! Just be prepared as the incline from the beach to the house is a bit steep but doable. The smokers in the group had to deal with it :) Dealing with the owner and property manager was painless - really nice people! Overall a great time. The much needed weekend escape from Chicago that we hoped for.
