About this property

4 Acres of Private Lakefront - Fox Chain Of Lakes - 1 Hour From Chicago

Lakefront vacation home with kitchen and patio
Enjoy the privacy and activities of staying on a private, spring fed glacial lake in the Fox Chain of lakes region. Just over an hour from Chicago or Milwaukee. 4 acres with 150 feet of lakefront and a private pier. House fully renovated in 2015. Brandenburg lake is a private, glacial, spring fed lake. Isolated from the main Fox chain of lakes it boasts one of the cleanest lakes in Illinois. Perfect for swimming and catching fish. The lake allows electric motors only, so it keeps the water immaculate for the abundant wildlife. All season activities; in winter enjoy watching ice fishing, cross country skiing trails of nearby Volo Bog, sledding, and curling up in front of the fire with a book. The house is a large 1950s split level which was completely renovated in 2015. Enjoy a large living room, dining room, fireplace room and screened porch outside the kitchen with lake views. Every window has a tree lined or lake view. The house is 2600 sq ft, plus has an attached converted garage setup for recreation of 600 sq ft and a screened porch of 300 sq ft off the kitchen. Entire use of the property is included; including lake, pier, screened porch, fire pit, outdoor grill, ping pong table, two adult kayaks, one child kayak, a paddle board, board games, life jackets, and paddle board. Completely renovated in 2015 with full kitchen. High speed wifi and a 50 inch television provided with basic cable. All linens are cleaned to NSF protocols. For longer stays, laundry may be done onsite for a fee. ADT remote monitoring. The property is within walking/cross country skiing distance of Volo bog; a State park of boardwalks and hiking/cross country ski trails over unique "quaking bog". A great nature center that hosts festivals and programs throughout the seasons.

5/5 Excellent

    A fabulous place.

    So fantastic. My group was participating in a golf outing and stayed here. Could not have been better!

    5/5 Excellent

      Great location and very nice accommodations

      This is my second time staying at this property and it was another 5 star experience. It is a great lake house and has all the amenities you would need to enjoy the lake and stay comfortably. Would definitely stay here again.

      5/5 Excellent

        Great Place

        Lovely spot to spend the weekend, exactly as described. Would definitely go again.

        5/5 Excellent

          Fun experience, great location

          The private little sand beach with the fire pit was great. The kayaks and paddleboards that came with the house were lots of fun and the dock is great for fishing. Well worth the money.

          5/5 Excellent

            Relaxing place with plenty of space!

            This place was amazing! Every room had a lovely view. We loved to eat outside and watch all of the wildlife on the lake. We love to cook and the updated kitchen had everything we needed. It was very comfortable- even for our large group. I was sad to leave and would stay at this place again in a second!
