Great weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had an awesome cousin reunion weekend. The house was grand and the view of the lake was beautiful. The pictures simply don't do it justice. Rick, the owner, is a great guy. He was very responsive to any requests we had. We were fortunate to have great weather as well.....the trip was definitely a success.

Perfect place for a getaway weekend! I'm certain the view would be beautiful in the fall and winter months as well! Marianne C.

May on the Fox River

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for us. We had 2 couples with one upstairs and one downstairs. It was private and spacious. The linens were so soft and the beds were comfortable. We had dinner one night for 6 at the house. Everything we needed was there. Our favorite part was being right on the river. We watched row boats, a paddle wheeler, birds, etc. from the living room and decks. Our host, Rick, loaned us a canoe and kayak so we could get out on the river. He also provided bikes to ride on miles of paved trails along the river. We'd love to stay here again! Stevens' & Rowsers

wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

This was a last minute decision and at the moment we arrived to the property, we knew we were in the perfect place to spend mother's day with my mother who was visiting town. When I saw the expression in my mother's eye, I called Rick to book the house for another day. This place has ample space and the view of the Fox River is relaxing and beautiful. Rick was a warm, helpful person willing to accomodate to our needs. We will rent this place again and again. Thank you Rick.

Great place for families

  • 5 of 5

Very good stay here. We rented the whole house, and it was perfect for our family with three teenagers while we were in town visiting for the holidays. Plenty of room. it was cleaned and ready to go with nice updated kitchens and bathrooms. Owners easy to contact with questions. Surrounding towns cute with many things to see and do. We ran in the Turkey Trot in neighboring Batavia. Everything we needed was there, such as linens and kitchen basics. Two small suggestions for owners: washcloths as well as towels in the bathrooms, and instructions for the first floor gas fireplace. Will definitely look to stay here again.

Great spot on the Fox River!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this home because we had a family memorial service and needed sleeping space for extended family and - most importantly - a peaceful spot to gather and relax. The Fox River house worked really well. Lots of sleeping space (although only 3 actual bedrooms with doors to close) and wonderful access to the beautiful Fox River.

The kitchen was well equipped and there is good food shopping just a few miles away. We loved having the canoes to head out onto the river. It was an easy place to relax and enjoy family.

Perfect Fox River Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for three days in mid-October. The views off the decks are stunning, especially in the morning when the eastern sun paints the trees across the river a bright gold. The river itself is beautiful - calm, clear, cold and slow. This house is nicely appointed and has plenty of space, which was critical for us because we brought five kids. It is located just a few minutes from downtown St. Charles. Olga and Rick are great hosts and I was able to text or even call Olga when questions arose.
