Built in 1917, this Craftsman home, has a rustic, peaceful, country charm where you can relax and kick back your feet. This property is the perfect mix of country and lake house retreat on an all sports, spring fed lake great for fishing or swimming.

Note, due to heavy rains, the lake level is at a 30 year high. While the beach might be submerged this year, our lakefront is perfect for swimming and the deck has a picnic table and chairs right at the waters edge.

My husband and I are both entrepreneurs and wanted a peaceful retreat from the bustle of Chicago. We bought this 100 year old Craftsman farmhouse and have lovingly restored it the past few years. We are excited to share this country getaway with others.
