5/5 Great for a Family Reunion

Osechin Chicago, IL.

Date Submitted: November 06, 2008

Date of Stay: October 2008



Our extended family, consisting of 4 married couples and 7 kids thoroughly enjoyed this vacation. The kids loved the arcade game, but we set a limit to 10 minutes each kid in the morning, then also in the evening. Grandparents loved the jacuzzi and all the grandkids jumped in with them several of our 5 nights there. It was a bit cold, but we braved the 64 degree water and took a tri-toon out on the lake to do some tubing and cruising. The house was set up perfect for 4 families to each have their own bedroom and bathroom. The full kitchen was just like our own. Nice coffee maker, but no coffee grinder (until now - we left one there as our contribution to the kitchen). Very quiet, secluded vacation home - we thoroughly enjoyed it!

Spacious home that accommodated 19 of us!

  • 5 of 5

Deb was so easy to work with and easy to get a hold of for all the questions I had. We rented boats from them as well and loved the convenience of them being dropped right at our dock. The house was a great size for our large party and had everything we needed!

Owner's Response: Thanks you for your comments and so glad you enjoyed your time at Lion's Gate. Gary and I are always trying to make ourselves available to our guests to answer questions, as well as making sure that everyone is comfortable during their stay. Having our rental boats delivered straight to the dock is a definite PLUS! This allows you to all be on the water as soon as possible. That's what the the Lake is all about! Thanks again, Debbie

Lovely weekend at the lake.

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this property except for a couple of minor problems. Inside was very clean and bedrooms and baths were as stated. We had a problem with the oven. Plenty of room for everyone. Burnt tops of pizzas and bottoms were under cooked. Refrigerator needs update. Owners were very helpful.

Owner's Response: Glad everyone enjoyed the trip and Lion's Gate. Thank you for your comments about your experience with the the oven. That oven was just installed last November. I remember specifically since it went in just before our regular guests arrived at Thanksgiving. As a matter of fact, I just heard from the guests who arrived just after your family, and the same thing happened to them. That was a very expensive oven, so I will have someone look at it and make sure it's in good working order for future guests. I really appreciate being told about this since this gives me an opportunity to get it fixed. Thank you.

Absolutely a great property for a weekend at the lake with family and friends.

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we had hoped for and more. Very spacious most rooms with private bathrooms. Loved the downstairs with the arcade games and pool table. The outdoor deck and gazebo was ideal for a gathering space outside. Owners were great to work with and will definitely stay at Lionsgate on a future visit to the lake.

Owner's Response: Thanks Marty for the great comments about the house and glad you enjoyed the trip. We are always trying to think of things that our guests would enjoy on their lake trip, and you mentioned some of the things that we hoped would set us apart from other rentals on the water. We appreciate our guests and welcome you back if another lake trip is in your future! Debbie
