Cozy lake house
This is a cozy house in a great location. It was great for a family get away.
Comfortable, Roomy Vacation Home
Overall the property was very nice and accurately described. My family was very comfortable. Just a couple of small suggestions: a few basics in the kitchen would have been nice. Although there were plenty of dishes and silverware, there was no salt, pepper, cooking oil. The bushes by the parking area need trimming and there was a small amount of standing water in the basement. Otherwise a really nice place, I would recommend it to others.
3 day family getaway
A nice spot on the chain. Easy access to anything you want to do. Jessica the owner was very accommodating and responsive on the few questions we had. I would recommend this property
Lakehouse with a great view...
We really enjoyed our visit and would have stayed longer but had a prior Sat afternoon commitment. House is conveniently located and we caught a ton of sunfish/bluegills off the shoreline.
House was clean and worked well for our family gathering.
Everything went smoothly
The cottage was perfect for our annual get together with our friends. It was very clean and well furnished with ample towels. The view overlooking the lake was peaceful. The bed in the upstairs master bedroom was extremely comfortable. The location was perfect. We hopped the Metra to Chicago for the day. (A little piece of helpful information if you decide to take the Metra to Chicago for the day-parking in Fox Lake is free on weekends and you can purchase a weekend pass for the train). The local restaurant Moretti's was really good-great gluten free pizza- and you receive a discount since you are staying at this cottage. We would definitely stay here again!!
Our home is nestled at the end of an elevated drive on Kings Island peninsula, on Lake Pistakee, surrounded by other vacation and year round homes. Fox Lake has been a "resort" town since the 50's, with thousands of vacation cabins and homes, now converted to year-round living. Several local restaurants and bars are located in walking, biking or short drive distance. Not to mention the abundance of other gems located on lakes through the Chain. In addition within 20 miles of our home, there are a theme park (Great America), water park ( and the Great Lakes Naval Station.
