About Ned or Gorica

We came from Europe 30+ years ago and live in Chicago area.

Ned or Gorica purchased this house in 2001

Why Ned or Gorica chose Hope Township

We were visiting a friend that lives on the lake and fell in love with it. We liked quiet evenings, crystal clear water and sky full of stars.

What makes this house unique

If a trendy cafe around the corner is your thing than this is not the place for you. This is quiet, lake side fires, hanging on a raft kind of place, fishing, etc. Turn of the cell phone and relax, bring the dog and watch the sun set, or later on gaze at the star filed sky that you never noticed before.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a marvelous time and your home was wonderful. There were only a few things that could improve our stay but when we look at how much was right it seems crazy to make a big deal about anything. Here are a couple of suggestions. We didn't have any soap for the shower, however you had shampoo which was great. There was a little sugar for coffee but that was good for a couple of cups and then it was gone and we had to buy some. There was no dish detergent for doing dishes or for the dishwasher. Couldn't get wifi to work, so we kept running to McDonalds to do our computer work. We could sign on to the router but couldn't hook up to the internet. Now if you add all of the things that could be improved upon, they were trivial by all of the items that were wonderful. Having a good cup of coffee every morning with fresh coffee was wonderful. Having the bottled water was great, we went through 2 of the 5 gallon containers. Having a gas grill with extra gas tank was great idea. We actually grilled every night. The outdoor furniture was comfortable and attractive and we loved sitting outside everynight. The interior of the home was nicely done and the games that were available to us were fun to use. We met many of your neighbors and they were all wonderful people. I thought that if I were ever to buy a home or cottage on a lake this is where I would want to be. The TV with the dish network kept my kids busy at night and such a nice TV in the living room. We ate outside for every meal. But we played games on the dining table in the evening. We truly had a great time and Stephan was a nice person to meet when you first arrive. We can't thank you and your wife enough for sharing your lovely home with us and we really had a great time. We are already trying to decide if we want to keep the same time next year or move it to July. But you will hear from us again most definitely.

Just right for our family vacation.

  • 4 of 5

Over all good accommodations for the price. Close to the lake, very few stairs. Could park our boat right there. Great air conditioning, internet, cable TV but poor phone reception for that area, not just this home. Water clean for swimming and tubing. No luck with fishing (probably our biggest disappointment ). Deck very nice with plenty of table and chairs for eating inside and out.

Appreciate having the fire pit. Landscaping around the house needs more attention (a lot overgrown)and Refrig needs to be upgraded. Kids went away with great memories. Kelly was great with greeting us and making sure we had everything we needed. Though we brought detergent and bath supplies like shampoo it was nice to see those things were provided. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Highly recommend this cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and 4 children under 4 truly enjoyed all the space and amenities. It has everything you need. Nearby caretakers were great and helped resolved our pontoon boat problems. Sandy beach was great for little ones, could use a little more sand. Spacious grounds and roomy interior is perfect. We are coming back.

Family labor day weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a excellent stay here. Very accommodating vacation rental with 3 families with everything there was shocked by the equipment already in place in the kitchen. The maintenance man Roy was great came an checked in us as well as deliver some firewood because we forgot ours. The view of the lake from the deck breathtaking. The kids had so much fun right in front catching fish and seashells. The pontoon boat was a huge success for everyone. The lake couldn't picture a better place to build memories with my family. We will definitely be making a family ritual renting this house out again but next time a whole week. Want to thank Ned and Gorica for letting our families enjoy their home.

Beach is perfect for family with small children!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great from the initial booking and information from the owner to the last day of our stay: good value for the price, our dog was welcome, our littlest ones could enjoy the water -- sandy bottom, easy for them to walk into. The older ones enjoyed fishing and turtle hunting. The space in the home was enough for our group: six children under 10 and five adults. Plenty of parking. Grocery stores within 15 minutes. Nice quiet road for the kids to walk on/ride scooters. The property manager was friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend it!

We had a wonderful weekend. The house was very clean, spacious, and had everything you could possibly need to make you feel at home. The lake is beautiful and the water is clear. Definitely a great getaway from your daily life! I highly recommend for families (they have a kayak and paddle boat!) Also the boat rental made our stay incredibly enjoyable. Will be returning soon!!
