Overview

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.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Andrew Smith

We met right off the shores of this house. Have been coming to Delavan lake since we were both kids. We have been married for 40 years. Owned the cottage next door for 7 years before buying this one. Great location and neighbors….

Andrew Smith purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Andrew Smith chose Delavan

Clean and reasonably priced. Perfect for couples to share, family getaways and Ladies only weekends. The large deck, fire pit and trees will make for the perfect evenings.

Great place...

  • 4 out of 5
This was a great place to stay and had everything we needed and more!!! The deck is a great place to hang out and the 3 bedrooms along with a single bed in one of the living areas was a nice bonus. The owners were very accommodating and even called to make sure our stay was going well. The only complaint we had was the smell of the water, but that is not anything the owners can help and wouldn't be a deal breaker for renting this place again. Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed our place. The water has been tested and is fine. Just a higher sulfur rate as most all the wells in this area have it. Not to worry as we supply plenty of bottled water for you enjoyment.

Great little spot!

  • 5 out of 5
We had three couples staying there this past weekend, while others stayed at my mom's house in town. The bedrooms were cozy, and the open kitchen and living area fairly spacious and very comfortable. We rented a boat on Sunday and were able to pick up and drop off passengers on the little pier at the end of the street (for some tubing) while the rest of us played board games inside the cottage. This was super convenient.

As others have noted, this is a lake cottage and not a 5-star hotel, so any expectations should be adjusted accordingly. It's exactly as it should be for what it is. That means it's a lovely little cottage and an excellent value. If you're one of those folks who'd rather save money and enjoy the perks of staying in the same space as family or friends (such as late night gabbing or early morning tete-a-tetes with coffee on the deck), fixing your own meals, and being close to nature rather than sealed up in a hotel room, then this is for you. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a great place to stay! My wife and I were very impressed, as the photos really dont do this place justice. FYI if your not picky sleepers and your in a crunch, there is enough sleeping for about 12 comfortably if not more. We will be back!
Note: Book the boat as soon as possible! The marina is 2 houses down.

Super cozy home, came with EVERYTHING but food, would definitely stay again!!

  • 5 out of 5
Andy was awesome to work with, super accommodating and was always available during the entire booking process. The vacation rental is very cozy, and they literally have the place stocked with everything you could possibly need. All the cabinets are labelled, and you can find exactly what you need without having to search through all the drawers. Very awesome setup. They weren't kidding when they said all you need to bring is food! The fans and window ac units kept the house nice and cool and at night we didn't even need to use them. Nice deck for everyone to sit around and have drinks, the neighborhood is great...seems like everyone is out partying at night so noise was never an issue. (We got a little loud as the night went on, but others in the neighborhood seemed to be having just as much fun as us hehe) The beds were comfortable, sofas were good to sleep on, very happy with what we got. It is a little dated, but if you're out at the lake to relax you don't need wifi or a flat screen tv. There was cable on a nice tube tv and a boom box to use but we had our own so it wasn't a big deal. Only hiccup was that the oven didn't work while I was there but that wasn't a deal breaker. Garage has an old Foosball table and some old folding chairs to use but bring your own if you plan on hanging out at the fire pit. Steps away from the marina, and we rented a pontoon from Dan at delavanboatrental.com who was awesome. He lives on the next street over so it was super convenient. We just walked over and got the boat. The grill got the job done, your standard 2 burner setup. Keep in mind that this is a lake house type of deal, so don't come in expecting super luxury...go to the four seasons for that. This is the perfect place to relax and unwind with family or friends, enjoy the great outdoors, and knock back a few brews. Oh, and when you're showering and stuff the water is gonna smell kinda funny cuz it's well water...like I said, it's a lake house not four seasons. Didn't even bother us guys one bit. A bunch of my buddies are thinking of taking our significant others here now as well since we had such a nice time. Thanks again Andy!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Phil, glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to you coming again. Sorry about the stove. It was just repaired and I tried it several times over the past few months? I will get this corrected asap.
