About The Owner

We grew up in the Chicago suburbs, and currently live in the city. We wanted a place that we could get away to easily on the weekends with our friends and family.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2012

Why The Owner chose Paw Paw Lake

We first came up to Paw Paw lake as children, with our parents for a summer getaway. Although we have taken trips to many other places, the charm of Paw Paw has always stayed with us. Over the years, we have always recalled our memories of our time on Paw Paw lake with fondness. So when the opportunity to have our own place on Paw Paw came up, we couldn't pass it up!

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with this place the minute we walked inside. We wanted a place on the water, and this place was perfect! It had beautiful water views, was just the right size, and best of all, great location. We love the quiet peacefulness of the water. It is an ideal place to come unwind and relax.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The lakehouse was the perfect getaway from Chicago. The lakehouse was cozy, private and spacious enough for all of us. I loved being right off the water. There are many vineyards and activies to do in the area. You can do as little or as much as you want. Thanks for letting us rent the lakehouse.

Nice stay

  • 4 of 5

The house worked out perfectly for some friends who were coming into town for our wedding. Many times I do not like homes which are on the channels of a lake but the channels on PawPaw are very nice, give an intamate setting and are not shut off from the lake. The house worked well, was in good shape and was very comfortable.
