Coach House with a view

  • 4 of 5

I spent a week at the coach house while I was in between moving, great spot for a long term stay or weekend. Has a lot of amenities with a full kitchen and washer dryer. The view by the lake is beautiful and I enjoyed having a cocktail watching the sunset. Jason the manager was extremely responsive with something that I noticed was broken. I would have given it a five but I think it needs a little updating with the decorating. I would stay here again when I am back in the area visiting friends.

The house is beautiful, with everything you could need. The canoes and kayaks were so much fun! It was great to be on the water.

Great location, everything we needed and wanted

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a great stay at the Coach House. It had awesome access to the lake and the kayaks/canoes were a plus. The kitchen was stocked with the pots/pans, etc that we needed to cook for the weekend. Jason was great and even dropped off some fishing poles per my friend's request. Very happy with the rental. Thanks!

Very Accommodating

  • 5 of 5

Nice lake, nice 2 story apartment attached to the main house. We had a small issue of the smell of smoke in the unit caused by a neighbor burning leaves. The owner got him to stop and Jason, who is one of the nicest people you will ever meet, couldn't do enough to make up for it. We came back from dinner and there was a BIG wine, cheese and fruit gift basket in the fridge. We also couldn't get Netflix on our TV so he went out and bought a Chromcast device that let us stream anything we wanted to watch. What a prince!! Great place for a romantic couple or small family.

Great place for a Couples Retreat.

  • 5 of 5

My Husband, Mike, and I don't get a lot of time off and we really needed to get out of the city to de-stress. We have no-cost access to a summer cottage in Syracuse, Indiana but I did not want to drive 3 hours. Luckily, I found this place just an hours drive from Chicago.

If you prefer a relaxing no frills weekend, this is the place for you. All we needed was a coffee maker, a hot shower and a real bed ( I refuse to go camping and sleep in a tent). It a warm, cozy space with more than enough space for a Couple. It sleeps 6 so we thought about inviting some friends to come with but we really needed a weekend to ourselves.

The Coach house is on the lake within walking distance to a grocery mart and a few bars and restaurants. Jason, our host, had a list of activities and attractions as well recommendations for some restaurants. We visited 3 of his recommendations and I am glad we did. We had such a great time. We went fishing, kayaking and made a kick ass fire outside in the pit. Roasted wieners and made smores. Shopping. We did a lot of that too. ( Went home with a chainsaw and leaf blower).

Jason is such a gracious host. He was more than accommodating, he even let us borrow a hair dryer. Just being able to text or call him really made our stay so much sweeter. I prefer staying here than any 5 star hotel, hands down. We stayed an extra night. It was difficult to leave and go back to Chicago. We will be back. This is now our "go to" place for a weekend get away. We are planning on twice a year and on weekends where we both happened to be off.

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

Nice cozy place, perfect for a weekend getaway with friends. Did not have any problems and the owner Jason was more than accommodating to all of our needs. Great location right next to lake and all your grocery/food needs are just blocks away. Plenty of activities nearby and the kayaks/rowboats that come with the place are a huge plus.
