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. Please note, due to heavy rains, the lake level is at a 30 year high and water at area lakes/rivers is much higher than normal. While the beach might be partially submerged, our lakefront deck has a picnic table and chairs right at the waters edge!

Our group of 6 had a wonderful stay here. I was nervous that the lake would be cold as they often are but the temperature was AMAZING. The water also seemed very clean. We had a great time swimming and kayaking and enjoying the beautiful yard and gardens. There was plenty of room…

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.
