About Doug & Katie Salvatori

My wife, Katie, and I live in Minooka, IL. We have 5 young children. We work hard and love to relax and spend time with our family, and as a couple. We are involved in our Church and love God, as He has provided many blessings for us.

Doug & Katie Salvatori purchased this house in 2014

Why Doug & Katie Salvatori chose Dowagiac

We wanted a home on an inland lake, safe for our kids to play in the water, close enough to enjoy on weekends. This was the perfect home because it had a separate living space connected to the main home via the breezeway. This additional living space allows us to always have a place to stay on weekends, even when we are sharing the home with vacationers. The Sister Lakes area offers fresh fruits and vegetables during the summer months, beautiful weather, and a lake we can play on. With life being as busy as it is, the weekends are the only time we all can sit down as a family and share a meal together.

What makes this house unique

There are 2 separate homes on this property, connected by a breezeway at the rear side of the home, allowing for our family to be able to enjoy the lake on weekends, while the cottage side is rented.

I spoke with the owner at length before renting. Doug was extremely helpful and easy to work with. The house is super cute. There is newer furniture than in the pictures here.

Summer Fun

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! Very nice, clean, great kitchen space, nice couch, relaxing sun porch, new washer/drier, comfy beds, great outdoor spaces for eating and playing (we had a baseball game one night after dinner!). The beach was awesome, clean and full of toys (sand toys, paddle boards, paddle boat and kayaks!!) Swimming was great - the shore had wonderful shallow water with a sandy beach! I was nervous about the beach begin separated from the house by the road with my younger children. It was a nonissue because the owners have taken every precaution and made it extremely kid safe and friendly.

The owners are kind and very accommodating!

Wonderful little thoughtful things like lots of hooks for wet towels and suits. .. Laundry baskets.. All the little extras.

We look forward to spending more summers at this great vacation spot.

Wonderful Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Home was more than expected. Super cute & clean! Perfect for our family of 9. Home is well stocked with everything you could need and lots of space. Beach has lots of toys, lots of seating, and the kayaks are a great extra. Swimming area was perfect for kids as there is plenty of clean shallow water. Owners were very friendly and went out of their way to be accommodating! Overall, we were very pleased with our stay and can't wait to go back!
