About diane stalmack

grandparents built this property, my father rehabbed in 1990's. I spent my summers here, waterskiing & making great memories. I now live here full time & plan to make your time here a wonderful memory. Photo is of Tom & I having a great day on the water.

diane stalmack purchased this apartment in 1934

Why diane stalmack chose Antioch

Our place is right on the water! The Chain o lakes are a water-lovers dream. Tons of boating, jetskiing, tubing here. Boat rentals are nearby, but we have a slip for your skiboat. Sandbars to ride to & spend day swimming, meeting new people & relaxing. You can fish from our pier & swim here. It's very peaceful on weekdays, a bustling place on weekends. THE BUILDING IS NOT SOUNDPROOF SO PLEASE OBSERVE QUIET HOURS. WE WANT YOUR STAY TO BE NICE & MEMORABLE, WE ARE NOT THE RITZ,. WE are a nice getaway on water& are onsite if ANY PROBLEMS should arise, please let me know immediately. We want happy guests!

What makes this apartment unique

We are 15-20 minutes to Great America & Gurnee Mills outlet mall if inclement weather.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the lake. Tom and Diane were wonderful to have as neighbors. We truly felt at home on the property. We were so very thankful to have our family enjoy a week together.

Great place for a restful vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Tom and Diane did everything they could to make our stay a great experience. Having lived in the area many years ago it was like coming home. Family and friends came and visited with us and we all enjoyed the BBQ and beautiful Bluff Lake. Thanks again Tom and Diane for your hospitality and in making our stay a memorable one.

Easy Access to Illinois and Wisconsin

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for our visit. To go to downtown Chicago we simply drove to the Antioch Metra Station 8 mins away. We had a great time in town at Navy Pier, Millennium Park, and highly recommend the architectural boat tour. If your visit permits, we also recommend a CUBs game (fun, fun, fun). We were able to visit Lake Geneva, which has crystal clear water and boutiques to shop. Our teenage daughters also enjoyed shopping at Gurnee Mills. Finally, our 9 year old's favorite activity was visiting the Jelly Belly Factory! The tour was free and we all had a great time. This house puts you in a great location to a lot of activities for all ages to enjoy.

We will definitely stay here on our next visit.

Quiet, lakefront property with a boat slip and jet skis!

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing vacation at this lake house. We brought our own boat and were able to park it in their boat slip. We loved using the jet skis and swimming and fishing off the dock. The lawn is a great place to play bags or bocce ball. The apartment is spacious with a screened in porch with a good breeze coming through which was an enjoyable place for playing cards and scrabble. Diane and Tom were wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home and took good care of us. The restaurants we visited in the area were friendly and the food was great. My boys want to move in but I think we will settle for coming back next summer.

Great Cottage on Lake Bluff

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this cottage (7110851) and had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the spacious amenities that were very clean and well-maintained. Excellent TV viewing area with a tremendous porch that offered a great view of Lake Bluff. The hosts were outstanding in helping us have a memorable vacation. Caught great fish off the dock. Everything we needed (golf, bait shops, restaurants) were nearby. Looking forward to coming back next summer.
