SANDY BEACH FRONT IS WAITING FOR YOU TO ENJOY!

Hastings House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Come spend a relaxing week/weekend away from the stress of city life at this large summer home that sits on over 1/2 acre of waterfront property, including sandy beach frontage. Whether you prefer spending your time sun bathing on the beach, fishing for blue gill and bass, or swimming in the 150 acre lake, your day is sure to be well spent.

Only a short 3.5 hour drive from downtown Chicago, Hastings is convenient for a weekend getaway. The house has 2 large bedrooms and 2 large family rooms, and can easily accommodate 10 adults with the pullout couches and futon.

This property is very kid-friendly as well. The lake has a sand bottom and slopes gently, providing a safe area for kids to swim and play in the sand. There is a large yard next to the beach that's perfect for soccer/wiffle ball/volleyball or just chasing fireflies. When it's time for lunch, the large side deck provides a great view of the lake so you can grill while still being able to watch the kids at the beach. The second floor deck offers wonderful sunset views of the lake as well.

In case you forgot to bring anything, the town is only a 5 minute drive to the grocery store, a movie theatre, a micro brewery and many quaint shops.

Come enjoy this wonderful property!

We've lived our entire lives in and around Chicago and soon after having our first child, we knew it would make family vacations much simpler if we had a place to escape to on a moment's notice.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

We chose this property because it was within a 4 hour drive from our home north of Chicago. Leach lake was also the perfect sized lake for us because it's large enough to enjoy tubing and fishing, but small enough that we don't have to worry about it ever being too crowded. The size of the sandy beach (125ft) was also a key factor so children could have somewhere to play near the water.

Waterfront property with large front yard and private sand beach. Large side yard with horseshoe pit and deck. Downtown Hastings is a 5 minute drive and includes quaint shops, a movie theater, a microbrewery and a great coffee shop. Only a 3 minute drive to the Hastings Country Club (public) for a scenic and challenging round of golf.

GREAT PLACE FOR A GUYS WEEKEND

  • 4 of 5
We rented the house with 6 guys for a cycling weekend. There are 5 beds plus a futon upstairs, so we had plenty of room. It was early in the year, so we had to figure out how to turn on the water heater--a couple cold showers...

The place was easy to clean and there was parking for 2 cars in front. If the weather had been nicer, we would have enjoyed the decks that overlook the lake.

PERFECT LONG WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was a last minute booking and Jeff responded quickly to our request. We surprised our kids with this trip and they couldn't wait to see the house. We arrived late, but when they woke up and saw the lake they couldn't wait to get out there and get in! We were blessed to have absolutely perfect weather! We met the neighbors Doug (and his 2 very friendly dogs), and Matt, whose pontoon we used for the day. The house was clean, we'll maintained and provided all the amenities we needed to make us very comfortable. All we needed to bring was our fishing poles, and the fish we're still biting! The town of Hastings was a welcoming and friendly town with a bunch of shops and restaurants. There is a fantastic (huge) park nearby where we brought the kids to burn off some energy. We went to Richie's koffee shop and found just about every local to be there. The food is very inexpensive, and average, but the experience of chatting with locals was great. I would recommend this rental to friends and relatives anytime! We could have used a couple of folding chairs for the kitchen table because there were 6 of us, but next time we will remember to bring them! Originally we were going to bring our dog, but changed our minds, but all of the lakeside dogs we're very friendly!

CHARMING LAKE HOUSE

  • 4 of 5
Our families met and stayed here for a wonderful sunny week. The lake was so nice, just to walk straight out the door and be met by white sand and clear water. We enjoyed the home, there was plenty of space for all of us to be comfortable while hanging out and sleeping. There are plenty of things to do that include the outdoors and lots of rafts and games provided. Our dog loved running around and playing with the neighbor's dog and puppy. Everyone on the street was friendly and talkative. There isn't a whole lot to do in the town, but it is easy to take day trips to Holland or Grand Rapids Michigan. The only downside was the mosquitoes, so remember bug spray!

GREAT HOUSE

  • 4 of 5
I want to start by saying that Jeff the owner was super responsive to all my emails and questions, and great to work with.
The house was nice, we were there on a girls weekend with only 5 of us and the house was larger than we would have needed. The house was clean and well maintained. As other reviewers mentioned you do have to water/beach area. The road is basically a small single lane private road with little traffic so this was not an issue. The beach area was small but there was plenty of grass to lay/sit in. The house has almost a double lot with a large fenced in side yard that you could enjoy as well.
The reason I rated the house 4 out of 5 had nothing to do with the house, but with the fact the neighbors were all very close. When we arrived there were 5 piles of dog poop on the property down by the water. We tried to clean it up and then just covered it up but it limited us from enjoying the beach area. When the neighbor noticed us walking delicately he came over apologized and cleaned it up, but we still tried to stay clear of the are.
