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?
Our cottage is fully stocked with linens, dishes, utinsels and everything you would need to cook your own meals. The tastefully decorated home has an office with desk, printer, and wi-fi. 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. There is a Weber grill on the patio. You can grill your supper while listening to the birds and the bullfrogs!
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
Our property is a perfect spot for rest and relaxation. it is located on a dead end street in a small town, on a beautiful lake. It is peaceful in our neighborhood. You will enjoy walking through our small town and visiting one of our many beautiful parks.
Bluegill Bungalow is a quaint cottage in a lovely setting. It is wthin walking distance of our Main Street businesses to the south, and to the Manteno Sportmans's Club to the north. There are beautiful birds, ducks and geese, bullfrogs, turtles, and, of course, lots of good fishing...especially bluegills! Your hosts are welcoming and accommodating. You will remember your stay as one of the best you've experienced!
We had such a wonderful stay in this home. It was very clean and so peaceful. We will definitely return.
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!
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!
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!
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.
Just 45 minutes South of Chicago right off Interstate 57, we are located just 10 miles north of Chicago Bears training camp and Olivet Nazarene University.
