A husband and wife team that likes to share a relaxing country vacation home with other outdoor enthusiasts.
Mike purchased this house in 2006
Apple Canyon Lake is close to several major metropolitan areas, the ride is a lot shorter than going to northern Wisconsin. The lake water is very clean and continually ranks in the top 10 cleanest lakes in Illinois. The northwest countryside in Illinois is rolling and beautiful so the drive brings a calming smile on the journey out to the lake.
The view from the deck overlooks Blackhawk bay. The water is tranquil, and the bullfrog croaks are mesmerizing. The air is clean and the skies are so clear that millions of stars can be seen at night. Come take in a relaxing atmosphere and enjoy peacefulness at its finest. The swimming, boating and fishing are top quality throughout the lake. Pontoon boats are available for rent at the marina.
My family and another family spent a week at this awesome house last week. We are very familiar with ACL as we are both property owners and were extremely pleased with everything about this home. Mike & Linda were both very easy to work with . When I accidently missed the deadline to send in our final payment, I called them up and they said no worries. I mailed it 5 days late with no issue. When we arrived at the house it was clean and tidy. Everything was put away and nothing looked out of place. There was plenty of room for all 8 of us, 4 adults and 4 children, with room to spare. We were so happy to see the twin bed in the 2nd bedroom along with the queen. You should mention that in your description. Great for a family with a younger child.
We had a small issue with the refrigerator the first day and Mike got back to me immediately when I texted him. He contacted a service man but we ended up not needing to use the service when the problem rectified itself. Thanks for being so attentive to this issue!
The house is in a great location with the small sandy beach just at the end of the yard. The kids loved being able to fish right there and they all caught several fish. The boat dock was easily accesible and came in handy since we had our boat with us (a registered boat on ACL).
All in all we had a great vacation and could not have asked for a better location. Thanks for allowing us a week in your home. I will be referring you to others! Do you offer a referral plan? :)
I'd rate it 4-1/2 stars (very good). Your response, when I called you twice, was very quick. The tank on the grille will have to be "run dry" to disconnect. The on/off valve on the tank is frozen in the "on" position. You probably have 6-10 burned out light bulbs needing replacement. It wasn't clear which boat dock was ours. Cleaning lady may need more time! She wasn't done when we came at 3:00. It was a little dirty and sheets were left in the dryer.There wasn't any laundry soap. In the whole scope though, it was very nice, and we all had a fun vacation!!!! Fishing was excellent too!! (consider a fish cleaning table)
This relaxing cabin was in beautiful condition, the beach and lake in the backyard was clean, and the golf course was so much fun to play on. This is in God's country, with deer and eagles in the area; we loved the serenity.
Apple Canyon Lake is a private 480 acre lake open only to owners and their guests. Fishing and sand beach area are just a few short steps out the back yard.
