Enjoyed our holiday stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. It's a great location on the lake with views from the kitchen and living room. Thr home was well maintained and contained all the amenities we needed to feel like our own home. Also, the owners were very friendly and helpful. Hope to stay again here in future and highly recommend others to stay.

Thoroughly Enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay here - plenty of room for all and just a wonderful getaway. We enjoyed being so close to the beach area with the lake across the street. Such a nice area and the house was very cute with more than enough room for our group. We highly recommend this rental, and are bummed that it is already gone for next summer.

Thank you so much for the wonderful hospitality, this was the capper on our mini vacation!

Perfect Cottage for a Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

First impression was excellent. Very clean and has everything we needed, esp. the garage. It had everything from Jarts to charcoal fire pit to roast marshmallows. Neighborhood is quiet and close to everthing: beach, boat dock. You can enjoy fresh bakery at Bodi's Bake Shop in Twin Lakes and awesome cars at the Volo Car museum in Volo, Il. There was enough room for the whole family to enjoy. We esp. loved the porch where we played a great game of scrabble! We definately will rent again in the future.

Perfect Cottage for a perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

First impression was great. Very clean and stocked with everything that we needed, especially for fun. The garage is filled with everything from jarts to charcoal fire pit for roasting marshmallows. Plenty of room for the whole family. We enjoyed the three season room to play a good game of scrabble! It is close to everthing: beach, boat dock, Bodi's Bake Shop in Twin Lakes. Volo Auto Museum in Volo, Illinois is a must see. A day trip to Chicago is exciting but at the end of the day retire to a quiet, comfortable cottage to relax and enjoy.

Excellent Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

From the first point of contact the owner was very easy to deal with and a delight to rent from. She was available for every question we had and gave us plenty of information to make our stay seamless. 6 girls enjoyed a 4 night stay during Country Thunder. The beds were comfortable and the living and kitchen areas exceeded our expectations. Plenty of room for laughing over the night's festivities and plenty of space to share a meal. Everything was very clean and in perfect working order. The 2nd fridge in the garage helped a ton! This house had everything we needed. Thanks again for making our stay enjoyable. We hope to rent next year.
