Our bookclub group of 8 women just spent the weekend in this beuatiful home. The house had lots of bedrooms which was great, wonderful communal spaces that worked well for discussions around the fire, a great farmhouse table that held all of us ( and cuoold have held 8 more), many bottles of wine and tons of food we prepared. The kithcen came equipped with lots of china, flatware, glassware and pots and pans. The house was clean adn well maintained. The owner called us the morning after we arrived to make sure we were settled in and did not have any questions or problems,and offered information about nearby activities -a very nice touch. The house is right on the lake with beautiful vista out the windows and off the decks of the lake. We hiked on the lake and met ice fisherman and many others that even in the winter used the lake. The Elegant Farmer was a wonderful country style grocer just down the road with wonderful prepared foods and desserts that enhanced our meals. There were not many fine dining choices in town, but there were grocery stores and necessities were easily had within 10 minutes, and Lake Geneva was a side trip we considered . The house was a two hour drive from downtown Chicago on a snowy winter Friday night. It truly was a wonderful place to relax and unwind, and while there were many activities within 30 minutes, we were quite content to enjoy the wonderful house. This house would also be fabulous for a group of families or a group of adults that wanted to partake in outdoor activities.
