Lake house getaway 40 miles northwest of downtown Chicago (train station in Mundelein is only a few miles away). Enjoy lake life, including an outdoor fire pit, swimming, fishing, screened-in-porch and back porch. During the winter, enjoy ice fishing and ice skating. Two private bedrooms up to four people with a private bathroom. Bedroom 1 has a queen, bedroom 2 is a trundle. Trundle mattresses are a bit thinner but still comfy. Canoe and tubes are available. If you bring a pet, we have 2 cats.
2 downstairs bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, living room, plus porch and screened-in porch. House is a lake cottage, built in the 1930’s. Vintage charm, if you are looking for new construction, not the house for you. Tom and I will be upstairs for the most part. We have our own living space up there. The kitchen is open to you, but we may be downstairs cooking.
Access to living room, kitchen, screened-in-porch, back porch and back and front yard (all shared with owner).
Interaction with guests
Tom and I can help if you have questions about the area/things to do or Chicago. We lived in the city before moving up to the lake.
- Smoking is allowed outside.
Tom and I are fun-loving folks. We love to enjoy our lake house, fishing, floating in tubes, swimming, canoeing, the fire pit and the beautiful view. We are also craft beer lovers, Tom is a brewer at a local brewpub, and I have recently took on perfecting the perfect pie crust.
