Very Comfortable Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My mom and I stayed here for a few days (3/27/17-3/31/17) during my spring break. It was cozy, and though it rained nearly the whole time of our stay, we had a blast indoors playing games, watching DVDs, inviting friends and family to visit, and ordering pizza from Pino's Last Call Pizza Pub & Grill. I think our two small dogs enjoyed this place even more than us! They adapted very quickly and found their own comfy nook. Everything I needed was already stocked at the house and additional supplies were located only 7 minutes away at a grocery store. The reason I'm giving this place 4 stars is because the beds come equipped with flannel sheets which I cannot stand - I wish I had brought my own linens - but other than this and a nickle-sized black spider in the shower (which can happen anywhere but I hate spiders) I was very happy. If I were to visit Delavan Lake again I'd consider staying here again though I'm interested in other properties this owner may have, just to mix it up. The owner, Vince, was very nice and easy to get in contact with. I felt very safe and taken care of. I would recommend using Vince as your travel host.

Owner's Response: Hi Arial, Thank you for the kind review! We try to make things nice. Sorry for the spider in shower but at least they shower! We usually put the flannel sheets for winter time. Glad you had fun and hope you can visit in the summer to take advantage of our pontoon boat rentals. Be good! Vince

Crab shack

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about this place! Vince, the owner was great to work with. He was staying in the house right next store, just in case we needed anything. All we needed was to bring our own food. This place was very updated, comfortable, spacious, and well maintained. We would definitely stay at the crab shack again or even the 3 bedroom cottage, that he also rents directly across the street. Thank you Vince!

Enjoyed Our Stay - Would Definitely Stay Again!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the "Crab Shack" and would definitely stay again. Vince is a great person to rent from - he was very low-keyed yet very responsive if we needed anything.

A little about our stay - we used this house over Thanksgiving. During that time, my husband and I hosted two dinners with family. We brought many cooking utensils with us, but were wowed by the assortment of items in the house (there was even a roasting pan!). The house was great for entertaining because of the open floor plan, long dining table, and gigantic cozy sofa. We slept very, very well during our stay because the neighborhood was quiet and the beds were incredibly comfortable. The location was very convenient - just a short drive to Delavan or Lake Geneva.

A+ in our book!

Above and beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this rental property (9/20-9/22) for my bridal shower getaway. Vince was great during the booking process and was prompt with his responses. Upon check in Vince introduced himself and was staying the property next door which was very nice as he was close by if we needed him. He was very personable and very pleasant. The home is just gorgeous! I was a little worried because the photo's online show 2 pull out couches in the living room and this was not the case. There is a very large L shaped sofa and large ottoman there now. Don't get me wrong it was literally the most comfortable thing I had ever sat on but that takes away 2 beds in the property. So technically there are only beds for 6 people. You could easily get 3 people on the couch though. It wasn't a huge deal just caused some last minute panic before guests arrived. All in all I was very pleasantly surprised in the property. This was my first time doing a rental home and was not sure what to expect. Everything from the moment we arrived was just wonderful. My girls and I are already planning to come back to this property every year for a girls weekend!

Great house for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised by this house. Everything in it is brand new and it is tastefully decorated. It was very clean and well maintained. The pictures don't do it justice - it is bigger than it looks. It has everything you need . The giant porch really makes the place. We would definately stay here again - it would be great in the summer. You can bring your own boat to use right off the pier at the end of the road. The owner was very easy to work with and answered all our questions and recommended places to eat in the area.

Awesome all-family getaway that accepts your furry kids too! :)

  • 5 of 5

This house is AWESOME. It is marvelously decorated, well furnished, clean, and is brand spanking new inside. We stayed here with our water-loving German Shepherd and a couple friends and they loved this place too. The bunk bed in their room is a FULL size bed, not tiny little kid beds. We definitely enjoyed hanging out on the patio and having close access to the water. We also rented the pontoon boat which was also a highlight of this trip.

We definitely will make this place one of our favorite places to stay at in Delavan Lake and would not hesitate to book here again. If you are a family looking for a place to house your dogs and kids or even just a couple looking for a nice lake house to rent; this is definitely the place to look at.

Vince and Brian were easy to work with via phone and email as well. Easy transaction and no problems.
