Why Annette LaMore chose Illinois

Our investment property is on the very street we grew up on. We are located in a quiet neighborhood on the north side of town and we still share our quiet street with lifelong neighbors. Our cozy location presents the relaxing views of our small lake. We think it is the perfect 'home away from home.'

What makes this cottage unique

This cute cottage has all the character you'd expect from a lakeside home....tasteful decor, large rooms and comfortable furnishings. Washer and dryer, fireplace, 3 bedrooms,1 1/2 baths. Sleeps 6 comfortably.

Please call for monthly rates of 30 nights or more.

Best vacation stay we have ever had!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many vacation rental properties. None have more completely met our expectations than this home in Manteno, IL. The owners were most helpful, friendly, and have presented their property with the utmost accuracy. It is very clean and beautifully maintained. Fresh towels and a complete kitchen with everything you could ask for. Soaps and cleaning products were provided, too! Any issues we had met with immediate attention.

The location is perfect! Right in the backyard, is a quiet and beautiful lake with our own dock and paddleboat to use. We fished with our grandchildren, enjoyed the large back yard with a lovely glass table and umbrella for cool mornings and evening barbecues.

We had access to the Sportsman's club ,down the street, with a beach! How perfect! Playgrounds abound in the area as well as splash pads for the summer heat.

We drove to the nearby towns for activities- children museums, carnivals, and parks.It is a quiet and friendly town.

We would definitely recommend this property.

Priceless memories made thanks to a wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived and tasted the homemade banana bread left for us, we knew the weekend would be filled with wonderful memories and plenty of good times. Annette was so gracious and kind, not to mention accommodating. She went above and beyond to make our stay phenomenal. All the comforts of home but away from the daily hustle! Everything was close by incase we needed anything from the store and even walked to the local ice cream shop! Plenty to keep the kids entertained and so beautiful! Grace House will hopefully be our yearly family gathering place:-)

Business/Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

We were VERY pleased with Grace Place; the lakeside rental in Manteno. The home was very well appointed, very clean, and an excellent value. My husband traveled to the area for work and we were able to bring our children along for a Spring Break vacation by using this rental. I cooked most of our meals and had everything that I needed. The pantry is well stocked with cooking/baking basics and all the appliances work properly and are clean. We had plenty of dishes, silverware, and cups also. The washer and dryer were very handy and worked perfectly to keep up with our laundry. My girls enjoyed the large, and well maintained back yard which backs up the little lake. They also enjoyed the included paddle boats on the lake. In addition, the owners have created a binder for the home with the special history of the home, pamphlets regarding local happenings, and a tremendous amount of information regarding local dining. The binder was very helpful to us during our stay. The owners live right next door and own two additional rentals on the same lake. They were very hospitable but also respected our space as well. They responded to our questions very quickly and were very eager to satisfy any request/need that we had. Annette even brought over freshly baked iced sugar cookies the day of our departure for our two little girls in honor of St. Patrick's Day. The owners, the LaMore's, are passionate about what they do and do it very well. I would highly recommend this rental.

Great house, awesome condition

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we were looking for. We used it to house our high school girls basketball team and it worked perfect. There was fresh bread on the table when they arrived and they were able to cook most of their meals there. We will mostly likely be booking for next year

Cozy meeting point

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I live 10 hours apart but wanted to meet somewhere so she could meet her new nephew. This cozy cottage was the perfect relaxing halfway point. We loved having so much space and the kitchen was well stocked with pans and knives and a few spices so we could cook meals there. We spent one day in Chicago and it was really easy to get into the city from Manteno. Thanks for a lovely stay! The banana bread was truly delicious. The backyard and paddle boats were really nice too!
