Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Kirk was extremely accommodating and went the extra mile to make out stay comfortable while we visited for our son’s graduation from boot camp at Great Lakes Navy Recruit Training Command. Lovely home with room for family vacations close to the lake and restaurants as well as the train station.

Our Holiday home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for several years and love it every time. There is plenty of space for our extended family to sleep, eat and enjoy time together. Kirk is easy to work with; it is evident he cares for and about his property. We plan to continue to stay here for many years to come.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a great place to stay in Great Lakes we highly recommend this home. Kirk has a beautiful home that is well taken care of that is 25-35 min from the Great Lakes Naval base, very close to the lake to take amazing photos, close to stores and restaurants. He is also a pleasure to work with. We felt like we were at home and there was not a ton of noise and my new Sailor was able to relax.

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This the second visit to this property for my family. The house is very clean and well kept. This year has also seen many upgrades. We enjoy because it has many activities very close and is a walk away to the Metra to get to downtown Chicago. There are many restaurants and grocery close by. The owner is very accessible and will do anything to enjoy a comfortable stay. Dollar wise this place can't be beat! Thanks Kirk.

Very clean and tidy.

  • 5 of 5

Right from the beginning Kirk was very friendly and helpful. The house is conveniently located close to several nice restaurants and grocery stores, and for you beer enthusiasts a Binny's is about 20 minutes away. The property was very clean and well maintained. It was easy to tell that he cares about his property and is making improvements. I saw what another reviewer wrote and can only say that he obviously tried messing with something he shouldn't have. We had no issues with the A/C at all, it stayed at the set temperature even tho it was pretty hot outside. The upstairs portable unit worked with no issues, I have one at home so I know that you just leave it connected to the vent and it works just fine. The furniture has been updated, and is nice and comfortable. We had a very pleasant stay and would definitely stay with Kirk again!
