Plenty of space for quiet conversation

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific place. There's lots of different places for people to clump for quiet conversation, and the kitchen is big enough to cook for a crowd without trouble. There's a huge, high-end washer-dryer upstairs. The walking trail nearby is quite wonderful. The porches facing the water are deeply shaded, and for those of us who sunburn instantly that's huge. It felt remarkably rural, and yet nearby Randall Road is one long parade of big-box stores of every variety (grocery shopping is particularly easy). St. Charles itself has artsy small-town stuff. Downtown Chicago (where we live) is easily accessible by train. We came with our adult children, and we all had a glorious time. The hosts are very lovely & accommodating. We will be back. Our kids are insisting on it!! Family vacations have not been this much fun since the years in which they thought playing Monopoly with Mom or Dad was hot stuff. Live long enough, and teenagers do outgrow adolescence . . .

Student Group

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this vacation rental. It's a beautiful home, with beautiful views right on the Fox Valley River. I brought a team of 6 students for a weekend retreat, and we all loved it! We were here in the middle of January, so it was cold, snowy, and frozen outside but warm and cozy inside. We even went for a walk in the snow on a path not far from the house that went along the river. I mostly chatted with Olga throughout our time there, and she was very helpful with any questions that came up during our stay.

Summer Road Trip 2014

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the house on the river. We were surprised and delighted that the furnishings and amenities were many. We'd like to go again and next time would need to figure out how to have a boat; the many river craft that traveled by were enticing to say the least. The homeowners were very available for questions and very quick to check out any anticipated problems. Lots of stairs would not be good for some.

Beautiful house, unfortunately, house was dirty

  • 3 of 5

I have great things to say about the house. It was spacious and comfy. It had a great porch overlooking the river. However, when we arrived, it was clear that it wasn't cleaned. We called the owner and he did send over someone to clean the bathrooms and the upstairs floor, but it should have been done before we started our weekend.

Great Holiday Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We gathered together for a family Thanksgiving at this wonderful home. Accommodations were great with plenty of room for all. One of the best parts of this home is the awesome kitchen and great room which we fully utilized during our stay. Would definitely come back again and sorry it took me so long to leave my review! Thanks Rick for making this great place available!

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the Fox River Vacation Home over the Memorial weekend and it could not have been a more pleasant experience. The house was set up well for our three family group and the weather was perfect. Owner was responsive to minor questions. Our family will return.
