About Stephen

Both my wife and I grew up on the water on opposite coasts - she's from Rhode Island and I'm from California. When we found ourselves, as college professors, teaching and raising our family in the Midwest, we decided we needed a place to get away and relax on the water. We have many happy memories of family reunions, summer boating days, and snowy winter evenings by the fire here at Foxhaven. Our children are all grown up now but they still return to share good times at our beautiful lakefront retreat.

Stephen purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Stephen chose Fox Lake

The Chain-O-Lakes is beautiful series of lakes and channels with cute cottages and elegant waterfront mansions, waterfront restaurants, wildlife and pristine wetlands to explore. We've been here for years and are still finding new things to see and do!

What makes this cottage unique

Quiet mornings with mist on the lake, sunset sails with family and friends, fishing, swimming, water skiing - there's always something happening at Foxhaven.

Clean, cozy cottage with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5
This was my first experience with a vacation rental and it was an extremely pleasant one! The owner was wonderful to work with, the home was in excellent condition, the view was lovely, and the atmosphere so much more relaxed and comfortable than a hotel for my family. Price-wise it was comparable to a hotel, but with so much more space and privacy. We will definitely stay here again!

A Perfect Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had the pleasure of having a wonderful 4 week stay at Foxhaven. We needed a place to call our home for the time we would be visiting family in the area and the cottage was the perfect place. Stephen is so great to work with and extremely helpful with anything we could possibly need to enjoy our time there. The cottage was very well taken care of and had everything we needed to host, cook, and entertain friends and family. It seems to be continuously updated and everything in the cottage was very clean and new. The cottage was the perfect size for the 2 of us and the deck is a wonderful outdoor space to grill and hang out. A perfect breakfast and sunset location! We couldn't have asked for a better situation for our summer and can't wait to be back on the bay again this summer!

Warm and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in Maple Cottage for the Thanksgiving week since we were visiting our daughter and grandaughter close by. We were pleasantly suprised at how clean and updated the cottage is. The view of the lake, although frozen, was spectacular and a hotel doesn't hold a candle to all the supplies and amenities that the owners supply. Our grandaughter loved the stash of games and we played time and again while enjoying hot chocolate. Although we did not need to contact the owner, he made sure we knew he was available if needed. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Such a wonderful stay in Fox Lake

  • 5 of 5
My wife, Sister, Brother-in-law and myself rented the Maple Cottage for a week in October, 2013. What a wonderful, enjoyable stay at the Cottage! The Cottage was cozy and comfortable for the four of us. We enjoyed being directly on Fox Lake, for the beautiful view and enjoyed a fire or two in the outside fire pit. If we ever find our way back to the area, we will not hesitate to rent the Maple Cottage again. We highly recommend this rental! Thank you so much for our wonderful stay!

A truly memorable vacation! We were going to stay in a hotel and came across this gem! My 2 boys (aged 5 & 9) loved the pier and fished every day! Canoe and beautiful wrap around deck with lights hanging from above. Everything we needed was there, even sugar for our coffee... Hairdryer..laundry abilities, books, movies, board games, etc... I felt like I stepped into a cozy home that is obviously taken care of very well by the owners. They were friendly and very accommodating! All my family that visited us also wants the rental for future family gatherings!! Thanks for the great memories!

Beautiful Fall Escape

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just spent 10 days at the Maple Cottage on Fox Lake. It was the perfect fall getaway. The cottage was comfortable, quiet and cozy. Warm days were spent bike riding, canoeing, fishing and drinking wine out on the deck beneath the pergola. Evenings got chilly, so we enjoyed the hot tub at the end of each day. The cottage kitchen was well equipped so we cooked in house a few evenings and went out the rest. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and are looking forward to renting again next summer!
