Lake house getaway 40 miles northwest of downtown Chicago (train station in Mundelein is only a few miles away). Enjoy lake life, including an outdoor fire pit, swimming, fishing, screened-in-porch and back porch. During the winter, enjoy ice fishing and ice skating. Two private bedrooms up to four people with a private bathroom. Bedroom 1 has a queen, bedroom 2 is a trundle. Trundle mattresses are a bit thinner but still comfy. Canoe and tubes are available. If you bring a pet, we have two cats

The space

2 downstairs bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, living room, plus porch and screened-in porch. House is a lake cottage, built in the 1930’s. Vintage charm, if you are looking for new construction, not the house for you.

Guest access

Access to living room, kitchen, screened-in-porch, back porch and back and front yard (all shared with owner).

Interaction with guests

Tom and I can help if you have questions about the area/things to do or Chicago. We lived in the city before moving up to the lake.

Love the decor. Clean and comfortable. Felt warm and cozy in a cool and damp day. The view out of the back porch is beautiful and peaceful. Good communication, and house rules were reasonable and clear.

Heather and Tom are wonderfully gracious hosts! You will find a beautiful home away from home in Mundelein. Loved their sweet kitties as they greeted us each night. Downtown Chicago was easily accessible and the parks are amazing! Make time to see Millennial Park and have amazing deep dish pizza at Giordanos too!

Tom and I are fun-loving folks. We love to enjoy our lake house, fishing, floating in tubes, swimming, canoeing, the fire pit and the beautiful view. We are also craft beer lovers, Tom is a brewer at a local brewpub, and I have recently took on perfecting the perfect pie crust.
