This is now my third stay at the cottage. I call it my sanctuary, refuge from the city. The cabin is cozy, yet surprisingly larger than what it seems. The large, fenced in yard is perfect for my dog, who may love coming up here more than I do! The fire pit and grill make it even better. Granted, it isn't the Ritz, but that's not what I want from a cottage, especially at the rental price.
The beds are super comfortable, has all the amenities one should expect of a cottage. I'd actually say more, as the cabin provides linens, towels, dishes, and cooking supplies.
I absolutely love it here, and as long as you don't expect the Ritz, I promise you will too!
Great for a family, a couple, or a single person, looking for pure relaxation!!!
Honestly, probably the best deal if you're looking for a lake cabin within close proximity to Chicago. Clean, quaint log cabin has a lot of history. Only 1/2 a block from the lake. And Ray is an exceptionally gracious host. Highly recommended. My family will definitely be staying there again.
This cabin has all the basics for a quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. I loved that it is pet-friendly and has a big yard with a grill and fire pit. The kitchen has most basic tools but if you need anything special - like a colander - bring it with you. The house could use some updates and a good deep cleaning of the carpet (it is pet friendly, after all) and there are some mold issues in the basement, so if you are sensitive to mold/mildew, it could be an issue. Overall, I would recommend if you are not fussy about luxury accommodations. The location is hard to beat - 1/2 block from the lake and close to Woodstock, Richmond, and Glacial Park Conservation area for antiquing, shopping, hiking, etc. Lake Geneva, WI is also only 20 min. away.
