Beautiful 4 Bedroom, 2 Full Bath Lakefront Home w/ Additional Guest House
About Melody Steffen
We (Melody and Todd) live in Chicago and have enjoyed a couple years at this lakefront location already hosting large groups of family/friends year round. We have four kids. We decided to open it as a rental property in 2017 as we don't fully utilize the beautiful space throughout the year, but we maintain it and treat it as our home. We welcome you to come stay at our lakefront home and start a tradition of relaxing, reconnecting, and recreating!
Melody Steffen purchased this House in 2014
Why Melody Steffen chose Twin Lakes
This property has so many unique and convenient characteristics that make it a perfect rental for large groups. We have hosted large groups and it makes a GREAT family reunion location with countless activities and private lakefront footage with a private pier and swim area. Don't underestimate the value of spreading out across 2 dwellings. Our kids have enjoyed plenty of time in the guest house with their friends, which is only 100' from the main house. We have invested in new heating, cooling, landscaping, roofs, and outdoor furniture to enhance your stay.
What makes this House unique
This lakefront home is only 1 hour from Chicago, 15 minutes from Lake Geneva, and 5 minutes from Downtown Twin Lakes.

Nice setting with easy lake access
Nice property with plenty of space and great access to good-sized lake. Property is located in relatively quiet area of lake.
This was my family’s third consecutive summer renting this property and it continues to be the perfect family Lakehouse getaway!
Best place I have rented yet!
I cannot possibly recommend this enough! Melody and Todd were spectacular hosts. The property is immaculate, and everything is in great working order (which is not always the case for vacation rentals). From the incredible well-stocked kitchen to the amazing yard for campfires and enjoying the sunset, this was the perfect place for a friends get together. The proximity to the Marina and the "sand bar" restaurant was appreciated, and the basketball hoop was a hit with everyone.
During the trip the guys in my group were already asking me if we could book this place next year!
Best experience I have ever had renting a vaction home . . . I wish all owners could be HALF as gracious and helpful as Melody and Todd are!!
It was exactly what we expected
We had a fabulous time!
Fantastic Home for a Great Family Vacation! Melody & Todd Are Great to Work With!
This home was perfect for our Family of three generations. The Best Home we have stayed at, in our 10 years of using VRBO. The rooms were very spacious, extremely clean & provided us with a perfect environment, for enjoying each other’s company. The shallow beach was perfect for our young Grandchildren. We were able to rent a pontoon boat from the Marina (They were also very nice to work with) for our entire Family. We took a trip around the Lake & finishing up at the Sand Bar in the Lake. We had plenty of room to play card games at night, as well as the fire pit was perfect for S'mores. Melody & Todd were so accommodating & make us feel so comfortable in their beautiful Home. They even gave us Wine, Chips & Salsa as a gift, upon our arrival. Melody & Todd allowed us to use their many inflatables for our Grandchildren in the Lake, as well as access to their many Family Games. The location was perfect for our drive from the Chicago Suburbs. The pictures on the website give a wonderful view of the home, but there are so many extras that pictures can’t capture. Everyone in our Family loved this home & we have already booked for next year. There are beautiful sunsets over the Lake, you can view from inside or outside of the Home. Melody & Todd are great to work with & were so helpful!
Charming wonderful experience
This cottage was perfectly clean and well equipped, with beautiful gardens filled with lovely flowers. The interior was super comfortable with great views of the lake. The lake was warm and nice with a large sandy area for swimming, charming Adirondack chairs, outdoor lighting, and fire pit for s’mores. The caring owner met us there personally to get us acquainted with everything and leave us wine and goodies to snack on. Conveniently located two properties away is a beachy restaurant and boat/wave runner rental. Overall the cottage provided us a peaceful, fun, well cared for place to spend a few days enjoying life at the lake.
