We rented this house for our late-20s Chicago-area daughter and a few friends, several of them chefs, for a getaway weekend in March 2017. They arrived late at night, found the house well-lit, and loved their stay. They used the hot tub and the fire-pit, enjoyed both, and said they'd like to return for another visit. The local manager was professional and returned calls immediately.
Clean, comfy. Plenty of room. Hot tub was a nice bonus. Actually bought them a new coffee maker as the other was plugged. Definitely would go back.
We had to wait an extra hour to check in because they were still cleaning. otherwise it was a great trip.
We loved staying here and wish we would have stay longer. The kitchen is quite small but bad everything we needed. The can opener did not work so we bought a new one(enjoy 😊). The driveway was pretty steep so one of our vehicles could not come down it since it snowed otherwise they wouldn't have been able to get back up. The hill in the front of the house was an amazing sledding hill for my kids! The hot tub was awesome! Overall a good time!
