Beautiful perfect house for family of 8

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the house we stayed at. It was perfect for our family of 8. We had 6 adults and 2 toddlers and they just adored this house . Kirk was great to work with he was always available if there was any questions aND a very nice man. The house is perfect location and walking distance from the train station and a perfect little park for my children. Kirk's house has all the amenities you will need for your stay. And more than enough room for everyone to be comfortable in. House was very clean. We will definitely be staying here every time we go back to midwest and it was a pleasure working with Kirk. We would also highly recommend this house to our family and friends . Thanks for everything kirk!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this beautiful and cozy house. It had been a couple of years since our last stay and it was just as everyone remembered. This place always feels like home and this is what keeps us coming back for more. The first time we stayed here we had a total of 7 people and this last time there were 9. There was still more than enough space for all our family. The first-timers loved the house and quickly understood why we loved staying here. Thank you, Kirk, for always making all of us feel welcome.

creepy!!

  • 1 of 5

the property was perfect but the first sign should have been when he said he doesn't go thru VRBO!! not a very trusting person to do business with! neighbors DO watch you while staying! unless you are desperate for this location don't do it!!

Spring Coho trip!

  • 5 of 5

Great weekend! Clean house, great location, very affordable. Kurt was very accomodating to ensure that we had a great time. Renting a house instead of getting a hotel room allowed us to grill fresh Coho from Lake Michigan.

Great Rental - includes everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Kirk, the owner, is a wonderful person to work with and really cares about his property and those staying with him. He was very helpful from start to finish, we even received our security deposit back within 3 days of returning home! House was in a great location, with lots within walking distance (restaurants, train to city, access to the water, shops, etc.). Rooms and house are clean and well maintained. Stayed here for 3 nights, while visiting family with 4 adults and 1 child. We had more than enough room. Lots of thought has been put into this rental - game closet full of items for all ages, tons of towels, beds, lots of seating, 2 living areas (main floor and upstairs sitting/TV area), etc. We will definitely stay here again if needing a place in the Fox Lake area.

Location and comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at this home! It was nice to meet the owner and get a walk through of the property. It is located close to many things at Fox Lake! Restaurants, Marina, Bakery are within walking or short driving distance. Well supplied kitchen, plenty of towels, with many of the comforts of home. Owner continues to improve the property. Clean and convenient and I would stay again.
