About the property

3 bed, 1 bath, sleeps 10 Ask about 3 night pricing….

Very spacious, clean & with all the comforts of home. Large property with huge sunny party deck just a half a block from the shore & pier. Fire pit, gas grilling area, 2 car garage, small running stream in back of house. 3 bedrooms, two each have a new queen size bed & the other bedroom has a double bed. Large open concept back family room & kitchen with large refrigerator/freezer & stove. Dining table seats 8-10 people & the room is all windows with faux wood blinds & is bright & sunny. 2 leather reclining couch & love seat & tv with dvd. Clean light color Berber carpet & wood laminate flooring in kitchen. Plenty of cabinet space & counter tops. Front of house has an adjoining living room & large walk thru multipurpose room that leads to large seated deck. All rooms are bright & lightly colored & one newly remodeled bathroom with wainscoting wall paneling. There are 2 super large couches in the front living rooms that comfortably sleep one person when you remove the big pillows. There is also a single bed in the living room that also doubles as a daybed. Multiple window a/c units & overhead fans in most all rooms. There is also a gas wall heater for chilly nights. We've never rented this before & so there are many very special shabby chic decorating finds I've collected. It is equipped with lots of pots/pans/dishes/spices etc & has a full pantry if you should want to make a crock pot meal or special blender summer drinks. It probably has anything you could think of or could possibly need so all you need to bring is your own clothes or food. ( pantry is always stocked with can goods too) My neighbor rents his pontoon & gives lessons for 375.00 a day which includes a full tank of gas. Oh & if it should rain some night the sounds you hear from the knotty pine ceiling in the bedrooms is so relaxing. Its very quiet at night & has many nature sounds! Most of the neighbors on the block are only up on weekends & are all very friendly & hang out together. Midweek there are only a few year round folks so its usually very quiet & good for fishing. Garage is stocked with all sorts of fun things to do & fishing gear. Its just a 3 season home so we can only use it May 1 thru Oct 15th. The lake is never crowded & they say fishing is great. There are a couple of sandy beaches nearby & antique stores to browse & Lake Geneva 10 minutes away. Its a great place to get away from it all yet only 90 minutes from Chicago. There's wineries & lots of stuff to do nearby if you want to venture out. There's 2 great bars within walking distance that usually have bands or comedy acts or karaoke.

About Andrew Smith

We met right off the shores of this house. Have been coming to Delavan lake since we were both kids. We have been married for 40 years. Owned the cottage next door for 7 years before buying this one. Great location and neighbors….

Andrew Smith purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Andrew Smith chose Delavan

Clean and reasonably priced. Perfect for couples to share, family getaways and Ladies only weekends. The large deck, fire pit and trees will make for the perfect evenings.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

Rented Andrew's cabin for a place to call home while seeing a couple shows at the nearby Alpine Valley amphitheater. This place has just about everything you could need for a nice stay (couldn't find a cheese grater, but everything else).

Plenty of room. Good communication. Quiet neighborhood. It's a cabin, so nothing fancy.

Great family getaway

  • 4 of 5

The space is so wonderful for a group or family to spend time together. The owners have been so accommodating. Only one block down the street to a boat launch. Quick access to local sites of interest. I've enjoyed staying at this location the past two years.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time staying at this cottage. There was plenty of room inside and lots of items for us to use while there (kitchen and grill supplies, coffee, bug spray, citronella candles...) the deck is very nice and has benches along the edges for at least 10 people to sit. Very close to lake, and friendly neighbors. Would recommend this place to anyone!

Delavan Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The property was bigger than expected. Nice sized bedrooms, plenty of seating. We were on the run site seeing most of the time, but spent evenings at the large dining table playing cards and board games. The area was very quiet and easily accessible to local areas of interest. Although we never had time to get down to the lake it was a block away. Neighbors were friendly, as well. In all, a great little getaway place.
