My friends and I rented Margaret's home for a ski trip and I must say it was everything we needed. Very clean and very close to the ski resort. Definitely booking with her this summer for our summer trip!

Margaret's airbnb is 5-10 minutes away from Wilmot Mountain -- which is incredibly convenient when snowboarding/skiing all day. She was a gracious host and was incredibly prompt when I reached out throughout the weekend.

We rented this outstanding lake house for a "girls weekend" trip. All us hard working ladies need some time to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life, and this was absolutely perfect. The pictures do not do this home the justice it deserves. Don't get me wrong, this house obviously sold a group of 8 woman just by the photos, but upon arrival, it was just breathtaking. A few ladies even took full advantage of the Jacuzzi tube located in the master suite, minus screaming children and nagging husbands. Margaret also was just a short text away with any questions and also recommendations. None of us had heard of Antioch but we knew we wanted a lake house. There was so much we didn't get to do, and are already planning our 2nd annual trip out to the lake house, with the hopes Margaret will host us again. From check in to check out, it was all so very smooth and very relaxing. All of her décor is just wonderful. I literally can not say enough fabulous things on the lake house and our wonderful host, Margaret! Thank you so much and we hope to be in touch with you very soon! CHEERS!!!

I built my lake house a few years ago. We love coming here to relax, swim, fish, and enjoy boating on the lake. Lake Catherine is one of the deepest lakes on the Chain O'Lakes. Very often you'll see beautiful swans coming to the pier for a snack, or a crane fishing at night. The wildlife here is very abundant.
My house has a large roofed wraparound porch to sit on a enjoy amazing sunsets. The flowers are many and blooms are constant. My garden boasts four varieties of hydrangea, blooming ornamental grasses, phlox, and many varieties of perennials and succulents, like Russian sage, thyme, lavender, mint, lilies, catmint, sedum, ligularia and many more.
