Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Delavan
3 bed, 1 bath, sleeps 10
Very spacious, clean & with all the comforts of home. Large property with huge sunny party deck just a half a block from the shore & pier. Fire pit, gas grilling area, 2 car garage, small running stream in back of house. 3 bedrooms, two each have a new queen size bed & the other bedroom has a double bed. Large open concept back family room & kitchen with large refrigerator/freezer & stove. Dining table seats 8-10 people & the room is all windows with faux wood blinds & is bright & sunny. 2 leather reclining couch & love seat & 40 inch hd tv with dvd & cable. Clean light color berber carpet & wood laminate flooring in kitchen. Plenty of cabinet space & countertops. Front of house has an adjoining living room & large walk thru multipurpose room that leads to large seated deck. All rooms are bright & lightly colored & one newly remodeled bathroom with wainscoting wall paneling. There are 2 super large couches in the front living rooms that comfortably sleep one person when you remove the big pillows. There is also a single bed in the living room that also doubles as a daybed. Multiple window a/c units & overhead fans in most all rooms. There is also a gas wall heater for chilly nights. We've never rented this before & so there are many very special shabby chic decorating finds I've collected. It is equipped with lots of pots/pans/dishes/spices etc & has a full pantry if you should want to make a crock pot meal or special blender summer drinks. It probably has anything you could think of or could possibly need so all you need to bring is your own clothes or food. ( pantry is always stocked with can goods too) My neighbor rents his pontoon & gives lessons for 375.00 a day which includes a full tank of gas. Oh & if it should rain some night the sounds you hear from the knotty pine ceiling in the bedrooms is so relaxing. Its very quiet at night & has many nature sounds! Most of the neighbors on the block are only up on weekends & are all very friendly & hang out together. Midweek there are only a few year round folks so its usually very quiet & good for fishing. Garage is stocked with all sorts of fun things to do & fishing gear. Its just a 3 season home so we can only use it april 1 thru Oct 30th. The water is good to drink & shower with but we keep bottled water stocked as well. The lake is never crowded & they say fishing is great. There are a couple of sandy beaches nearby & antique stores to browse & Lake Geneva 10 minutes away. Its a great place to get away from it all yet only 90 minutes from Chicago. Theres wineries & lots of stuff to do nearby if you want to venture out. Theres 2 great bars within walking distance that usually have bands or comedy acts or karaoke.
