This home is on the border of Illinois and Wisconsin. Beautiful, quiet cul-du-sac street on Lake Mary in Twin Lakes. This is not a cottage or rustic cabin, but a nicely decorated year round home! Fully decorated. Great place for a family to get away or a small family reunion! Our home has a nice screened in porch with seating for bug-free enjoyment!! Also, we have a nice outdoor patio off the lower level family room. 90 foot frontage on Lake Mary allows for nice private clean swimming. H sharped pier provided for you to dock your boat, wave runner, kayak or just fish off the end. SUMMER: Water-ski, jet-ski, boat, fish, kayak, swim, sunbath or boat to Pier West for dinner in the summer and watch the fantastic water ski and stage shows from the end of our pier or at the public beach nearby. Golf at one of the several courses in the area. Or in the winter: Cross country, ice skate, ice fish, Wilmont ski slopes, Geneva Spas or just sit in front of the fireplace..... Ahhhhhhh :)

Summer:: 90' frontage on Lake Mary.

H shaped Pier provided for you to dock your boat, wave runner, kayak, etc.

Water ski, jet ski, boat, fish, kayak, swim, sunbath or boat to Fitzwoodys for dinner in the summer and watch the fantastic water ski & stage shows! Public sandy beach nearby. Golf at one of the several courses in the area. Take a drive to Six Flags Great America, Gurnee Mills Shopping Centers, Pleasant Prairie Outlet malls. Go have a Spa treatment and shop in Geneva. Have an excellent dinner in Richmond at Pizannos. Lots to do- you'll wish you had more time!

Winter:: Cross country, ice skate, ice fish, downhill ski at Wilmont, snowball/snowman games, or sit in front of the fireplace and relax! Go see the ice sculptures in Geneva after a Spa Treatment and shopping! Then go have a fantastic dinner!

Do you hunt? There are hunting facilities in Richmond.

Do you ice fish? Then do it right here on Lake Mary.

Do you ice skate? Feel free to make a space in front of the house (or maybe it'll be done when you get there?)

Do you cross country ski? NO better place.

Are you NOT a winter sports person? Then sit in front of the outdoor or indoor fire and read a book!

You will relax here!

Why rough it in a camper, tent or cabin, when you can be at our home watching the boats go by!

Exceeded All of my Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We rented this gem for the entire month of July this year. Our intent was to give ourselves a home base and invite our friends up to spend time with us from Chicago, I would have stayed the entire summer if I could have. I don't even know where to start, the house is a perfect set up for multiple families with lots of kids (or no kids). The two floors really give you privacy if you need it and the rec room in the basement makes it feel extremely spacious. The screened in porch is the best room in the house and perfect on summer nights. The house is amazingly well stocked with sheets, toys, movies, kitchen stuff and little extras. My kids lived in the water and had a blast, and the sun exposure is perfect, direct sun in the morning and a nice reprieve in the afternoon. The street is quiet and the neighbors were very friendly and welcoming. You’d be crazy to rent anywhere else.

Letter left in the home by guest.....

  • 5 of 5

This letter was left in the home dated June 19, 2011. Ages two to sixty-seven, our family enjoyed the view, the spaciousness of the house and lakefront, and the total lake house experience. Bonus features: Huge table where nine could eat together; we could assemble a puzzle at one end, play cards on the other, do crafts in the middle, all at the same time. Kids could watch a movie in the basement while adults enjoyed conversation in the great room. All hours of day and night we could delight in the lake sounds and sights in comfort on the screened porch while reading, talking, sipping beverages, playing cards and games. Sunrise, moonrise and all hours in-between were treasures to remember. We spent hours down by and in the lake. The sand box was a huge hit, the paddle boat in constant use, clear and shallow water greatly appreciated, fire-pit cozy for late evenings, and chairs a relief when we exhausted ourselves. I am guessing I will hear this described as a favorite family vacation for years to come.

Coming back next year

  • 5 of 5

There is no doubt we will be coming back to Twin Lake next year. I have enjoyed it more than any other break. I had my entire family come to stay at some point or the other and enjoyed watching my grandchildren play at the water from the screened porch. I enjoyed making dinners for the kids and ordering in as well. The guest book was filled with menus for the area and made it all so easy. We went into Lake Geneva for a day and to Great America for a day. My sons-in-law went golfing those days. I wish we were closer. I would take a weekend in the winter as well for holiday shopping in the outlet malls. My daughter is thinking of coming for a ladies weekend for shopping and winter sports. I felt truly relaxed when I went home.

Perfect place for a big family...

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here and had a great time! We were allowed to bring our two dogs with us and they had a great time too. The porch was FANTASTIC and we had a blast with the firepit, swimming, and fishing off of the pier. There were tons of beds and we fit in 4 kids/babies with no problems, and the dining table was big enough for all of us! The only problem we had was the requirement to wash the sheets and remake the beds before you go--which is almost impossible given that there is a very small washing machine and check out is only a few hours after you get up. Oh, we also rented a jetski and a pontoon for a couple of days--SUPER FUN.

Great Lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

Great house! Plenty of room for our extended-family gathering -- all 13 of us. Nice casual atmosphere, the pier and screen porch are wonderful, terrific view over the lake, very relaxing and a great place for a family get-together. Everything was very clean, well maintained. We'd definitely come again.
