Beautiful Cozy 2-Bedroom Cottage
About Rosemarie Nilson
A love of boating, fishing and the outdoors has been embedded in us from our youth. I spent my teenage years on the Chain water skiing and boating with my family. Jim and I opted to live where we had many happy memories, where people are friendly and life is exciting and fun -- the Chain O’Lakes. We feel truly blessed to be able to live in a vibrant and historic community and most importantly, to be close to those that matter most – our family and friends.
Rosemarie Nilson purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Rosemarie Nilson chose Fox Lake
Why Escape to Fox Lake? The Village of Fox Lake is a vibrant community rich with history, wonderful people and just a short distance from many delightful attractions, such as: • Chain O’Lakes State Park • Downtown Chicago • Great America • Gurnee Mills • Pleasant Prairie Premium Outlets • Volo Auto Museum • Wilmot Mountain Fox Lake is part of the Chain O’Lakes that is comprised of 10 connecting lakes – Bluff, Catherine, Channel, Fox, Grass, Marie, Nippersink, Petite, Pistakee, Redhead as well as the Fox River. The Chain O’Lakes provides year round enjoyment for boating, fishing, snowmobiling, bird watching and ice fishing. In addition, the Chain O'Lakes allows for a wide range of outdoor recreational activities with special events throughout the summer sponsored by local businesses, including boat races, fishing tournaments, Venetian night, fireworks and live musical performances. Your Great Escape is just minutes from downtown Fox Lake – and moments from great memories.

Easy check in & out process. Cottage was very clean & hosts were very helpful.
Fox Lake is gorgeous. We enjoyed visiting the lake and loved being able to walk to dinner. The location was perfect and the place was clean, organized and super cute. The hosts were extremely friendly and even helped me when my dog ran away (we got her back). Thanks for a very memorable stay!
Very nice location, close to train & lake activities
We had a GREAT time at the cottage this past weekend! The location couldn't be better - you can relax on the outdoor patio furniture & adirondack chairs right on the water. If you have a boat, you are also able to use their dock to tie up your boat during the stay (so convenient!). Rosemarie & Jim are awesome hosts - they have so many recommendations on places to go on the chain. Also, the cottage itself is walking distance to multiple bars and restaurants right on the water (El Puerto, etc.). We had an awesome time & can't wait to come back!
Thank you so much for your kind words Kelsi. We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us! We count ourselves lucky for having wonderful guests like you. We look forward to having you come back and before you reserve, please reach out as we provide discounts to repeat guests. Thank you again!
Fun and relaxing
The property is charming, homey and full of personal touches. The town (and surrounding communities) have a bunch of shops to explore.
We are delighted that you and your husband had an enjoyable and relaxing weekend! In addition, we appreciate your kind words left in our cottage guest book & happy that you enjoyed the coffee cake from Fox Lake Bakery. They are truly the best! Lastly, thank you so much for the chocolate covered pretzels from Long Grove Confectionery - they were delicious! We hope to see you back soon!

Walking distance to El Puerto restaurant for an awesome Margarita
A Thursday night away from watching some thrilling drag boat racing at Blarney’s Island
A Sunday morning away from having a “meal in a glass” Bloody Mary at Route 12 Bar and Grill
A click away from access to seeing some amazing live bands
