About this property

Columbia Bay Compound, Two Homes Great Groups And Families On The Chain'o'lakes!

Vacation home in Antioch
On the Best bay of the best lake, lies this beautiful property. There are two great homes on the same 75x300ft lake front lot. Rent both and have some separation for those large group gatherings, OR, rent one for some nice quiet peaceful time on the lake. Perfect for summer getaways, fishing trips, fall colors and apple picking, ice fishing trips, snowmobile outings and more! The location on Columbia Bay of Fox Lake, allows ease of access to all that the Chain has to offer. The central location enables you to make your rounds to all the lakes on a pontoon cruise, visit the many local restaurants and bars, snowmobile throughout the Chain, while all at the same time the Compound provides you with quiet and peaceful privacy. The Lake House has 2 bedrooms and one bathroom, the Big House has 3 br and 1 ba. Rent both for larger groups, or just rent one for a smaller gathering. In the summer, The Compound comes equipped with a brand new (2015 summer) custom dock perfect for swimming and enjoying the sandy bottom as well as mooring your boat for the stay, a 14ft row boat with oars, a 75 ft steal seawall and flat yard to enjoy, and an adjacent 10ft beach which is perfect for getting those snowbiles out onto the lake! Details shown will be for both homes. If you are interested in the rental of only one home please go ahead and inquire! I am more than happy to work with my guests.

    We had a great time at the property, though the listing is extremely misleading. Far too expensive for a dirty (cob webs, many spiders, dirty toilets), unkept (mantle points down instead of straight, paintings on the wall were crooked, extremely dusty, old bedding) and stinky (musty, stuffy) experience. It should be made more apparent that these are two separate properties, making for an awkward arrangement for a group if not expected. There were no keys left so the place was never locked- a bit unsettling. We were able to turn the heat on upon arrival, though one bedroom off the front door never thawed. Proceed with caution in the winter. Bedrooms didn’t have doors, lights didn’t work, outlets didn’t work, doors wouldn’t open or close without effort from multiple people. Shocked that there’s a cleaning fee as it hasn't been professionally cleaned in the new millennia. Also the service fee is a bummer as there was zero interaction with the owner and communication was extremely inconsistent- spent an hour in the driveway waiting for a call back before learning the doors were just left open. Great DVD collection though!

    5/5 Excellent

      Quaint and comfortable

      I hosted a smallish bachelor party here, and I must say, the experience was fantastic. John was incredibly accommodating and easy to work with, and the homes were comfortable and clean. Though the weather that weekend left something to be desired, and we ended up having to stay inside, we barely noticed and still enjoyed ourselves immensely. I'll be keeping this place in mind for future weekend getaways! Thanks so much for everything!

      4/5 Good

        Beautiful area with a homely house

        The location was perfect and the grounds were great. Enjoying a beautiful day on Fox lake can't be beat. We really enjoyed ourselves! Thanks
