Lakeside, Two Bedroom, 2 Bath Home With Office. Sleeps 6.

This beautiful lakefront property is a 'home away from home' and perfect for travelers doing business in the area. Why stay at a hotel when you can have all the luxuries of home with a beautiful view?

There are 2 tvs in the house with Comcast cable service. The back yard has a beautiful view of the little lake. You can fish from the deck, and be sure to catch at least a bluegill! The neighborhood is peaceful and the people who live here are friendly. We are proud of our small town and its amenities. There is an antique shop just a few blocks from our property. We have 2 hometown diners that each serve excellent homemade breakfast, and lunch. You'll like it so much that this will become your favorite retreat from big city life.The beds are comfy and the leather furniture in the family room is an added feature.

About Annette LaMore

We were both born in Kankakee County and raised in Manteno. We like it so much that we have never left our home town. We are volunteers in the community and help manage the Manteno Golf Club & Learning Center. We have been honored at St. Joseph Church as Family of the Year, and in our community as 'Citizens of the Year' in 2012. Both of us are retired from our careers (chemist and mailcarrier) and enjoy hosting people from all over the world at our vacation rentals. We hope you'll choose Manteno for your next get-away!

Annette LaMore purchased this bungalow in 2000

Wonderful and relaxing stay on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Manteno is a sleepy little town on the Far South side of Chicago. The property is the perfect place to relax and go into the city when you feel like being adventurous. Annette and Rondy keep the place up extremely well and make you feel very welcomed! It's got all the amenities you would ever need, and then some. Mornings sitting on the patio looking at the lake were awesome! Try Stampedes bar if you want to kick up your heels, it's only 1 mile away. Highly recommend a stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Dan! Manteno may be a small town, but we have a lot to offer. There are many restaurants, venues with music and entertainment...like Stampede Saloon, Manteno Sportsman's Club, Anthony's Restaurant, MidTown Pub, and the American Legion. We have a beautiful village owned golf course on the east side of town. Bicyclists and joggers love meandering through town and don't be surprised to see golf carts traveling on city streets.There are 10 parks in town where you will find walking paths, playgrounds, tennis courts, horseshoe pits and baseball diamonds. We are currently enjoying our Annual Oktoberfest and thousands of people are in town for the festivities; carnival, street vendors, beer tent with live bands each night, pet parade, and over 70 garage sales. Tonight is our huge lighted parade with business and family floats, local clubs school kids and scout troops. We are a "small town with a big future" and we welcome visitors from all over the world! Thank you, Dan, for coming to the best little town in the United States! Rondy and Annette

Perfect for a weekend get-away

  • 5 of 5

When we ( 4 girls in the age of 20/21) arrived at the little lake house, we were just speechless.

The house is modern, neat and clean, the backyard is so cute, with a direct access to the little lake.

A fully stored kitchen, a huge TV in the living room and guest passes for the near by sports-club(so we could use their private beach) are just a few big plus points of this rental.

The owners were so nice and kind, they surprised us with a homemade banana-nut-bread ,which was soo delicious and they also offered us their pedal boat, to take a ride on the lake.

This was by far the best weekend house we could've imagined.

I am pretty sure, we'll come back.

Thank you so much!

Excellent Property!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful alternative to staying in a hotel! We rented the Bluegill Bungalow with our family of 6 and it was roomy, extremely clean and located on a quiet cul-de-sac. We highly recommend your stay at this property! Owners are great people!

Owner's Response: Our Lakeside Rentals are located just 10 minutes from Olivet Nazarene University. We love it when families of college students choose to visit our cottages. Staying here, on little Lake Manteno, is a relaxing and peaceful experience. We offer all the conveniences of home in exceptionally clean and attractive cottages. Meeting wonderful families from all over the United States is a unique and fun experience for us. We enjoy frequent guests from other countries who find our small town charming and interesting. Manteno now has 5 antique shops that offer a plethora of art work and memorabilia. We are located just 45 minutes from Chicago's Magnificent Mile. We look forward to having you visit us!

Working in town.

  • 5 of 5

A coworker and I were working in the area from the Carolinas for a couple weeks. We normally stay in hotels but found this house available for rent. What a great alternative! Recently updated and immaculate, the house sits right on peaceful Manteno Lake. The owners, who live near by, were a pleasure to deal with and even brought over fresh baked goodies on several occasions. The town of Manteno is charming, as well. I would definitely recommend renting this house for a couple days, a couple months, or even a couple years.
