      Great for a weekend away from Chicago

      My boyfriend and I had a great weekend here. The yard feels pretty private and we enjoyed the view of the lake. Just as a heads up, the only A/C unit is in the bathroom, so it might be problematic if it’s a very hot day. The fire pit and grill were great (you need to bring your own charcoal). Kate met us and gave us a quick tour of the place and offered restaurant suggestions if needed. She also left us the supplies for s’mores, which was a nice touch. Wifi was very fast! We are already thinking about when we can come back with friends!

        Full lake-cottage experience

        My wife and I came here for my graduation treat. We both loved the place and the fine details the host put into our stay. Overall we would come back again. We were here in May when it's warm in the day and chilly at night which was perfect for this cabin. During the day we used the kayak and paddle boat to cruise the lake. We saw many people fishing successfully which made us wish we have tried fishing in retrospect. At night we lit the bone-fire which was made convenient with the host providing tools to the finest details including s'mores. When it's chilly at night I enjoyed walking barefoot on the marble which was made warm from the heating system run by Kate & Tim.

        5/5 Excellent

          Lovely lake view

          Kate & Time were very helpful and friendly. The cottage was warm and cozy. They have a lot of nice little extras like a fire pit, kayaks and fishing poles. It was a perfect size for my little family of three. I would stay there again if I was in the area. Thank you for your hospitality. ~Pam W.

            Restful Lake Cottage

            For this trip we needed a nice place to stay for the weekend while visiting family and friends in the Chicago area and this cottage was just right for us since we are not used to staying in a large city ! The kitchen had what we needed , the bed was comfortable , the only thing was it needed two leather chairs with ottoman in the living room because we had to take turns . All the unique items in the cottage were so cool and we took photos of them ! The deck with the view of Long Lake was wonderful and restful . The driveways were a little tight and would be a little tough if I would have brought my boat down . I wish they had a aluminum fishing boat to use or pontoon because of me and my wife's age and disabilities . Over all we enjoyed our stay and Kate and Tim were both friendly and helpful ! We would consider staying here again !

            5/5 Excellent

              Great lake cottage!

              Really enjoyed our long weekend at this adorable cottage. Long lake was a nice, quiet lake and was great to explore using the kayaks and paddle boats the owners graciously provide. The cottage is full of artistic treasures but is still very kid friendly. The beautiful deck, backyard, and fire pit made for a wonderful weekend at the lake!
