Description of the Vandalia vacation home rental
Located less than 2 hours from Chicago (115 miles),this is a beautifully rehabed house on Donnell Lake. Wake up on the water in this uniquely decorated, comfortable home that has a King bed in the master bedroom and three Queen beds in the back two bedrooms. There is a new kitchen with all of the modern appliances along with being fully furnished. In the living room there is a 43 inch flat screen HD t.v., stereo, blue-ray dvd player, and a chair and a half along with a 7 ft. long sofa. The relaxing screened in patio has a dining area along with a double chase lounge couch (great for naps in the shade). With a fire pit down by the water, it's everything you and your family need to enjoy a Summer vacation.
I have a nice pontoon boat that seats 10 with a table and a great stereo system that you can plug your ipod into that is included with the rental.

Sorry, but no pets allowed.....

Other Vacation Rental Amenities

The Property Was Exactly What We Expecred Very Spacious And Accomadating. The Weather Was A Little Iffy For The 1st Day And 1/2 But Overall Comfortable. The Pontoon Boat And Paddle Boat Were Great And The Fishing Good. We Highly Recommend This Property And Hope To Return Next Year. We Found Ed To Be Extremly Frindly.and Helpful.

Great week at the Lake

This home was well-equipped and well-applianced as well as being very clean and comfy. Fishing was good off the dock (lots of small ones, one 15" bass) and it's a beautiful lake. Wonderful screened porch from which to enjoy the lake view and the hummingbirds. We found a Botanical Garden and Paris Soda Shop in Niles where we spent a great morning. CJ's Fisher Lake Inn in Three Rivers was worth TWO trips for dinner, and Mr. Wahoo's in Dowagiac is great for breakfast or lunch. Except for rain on Sunday, it was a perfect week!

Perfect week at the lake

We just returned from a perfect week at the lakehouse. This house was perfect for my husband and I and our five adult children who visited on and off during the week. The house was just the right size, cozy, and very well appointed. We loved having the boat and the lake is beautiful. Caught many fish right off the pier. We hope to return next year!

Girls Weekend

Six of us met at this lakefront home and had a great weekend. The accomodations were perfect, great kitchen, extremely clean and the furniture and view of the lake were very relaxing. I was surprised to see how clean the water was at the dock. Even my 92 year old mother felt right at home. Ed was wonderful to work with-He truly wants you to enjoy his house. It was a great time catching up with Michigan and Pennsylvania family. Lots of memories were made from the games on the lawn to the trips to the local wineries and casino. Wish we had more time-I would recommend this house to anyone who wants to get away.

Great house, great time!

Eddie was nice to work with and helped us every step of the way. The house was very clean and updated, a pleasure to stay in! Awesome sun rises and sunsets you can't go wrong. We rented the boat as well and had nice cruises everyday. A great place for a getaway and we'll be back next year!

Absolutely perfect!!!

We had a great time. Our family of four and our friends family of 7, 4 adults and 7 children ranging from 3-13, were more than comfortable! We felt like we were home when we walked in and had nothing but a positive experience. Ed was great to work with and completely honest about everything and a great help! Highly recommend this as your next family location! We will be back!

This house rocks!

Spotlessly clean. Kitchen and Baths were beautifully updated and has everything you need (pots, dishes, knifes, etc). Bunch of guys went for reunion but I would certainly take my family back for vacation. Great view of the lake right on backyard. Eddy the owner was very informative. Definitely deserves 5 stars.

Awesome Vacation Home!!!

A group of my friends and I had a wonderful time at the lake house. Everything we needed was there (linens, fire pit, grill, etc.) and Eddie is extremely nice! We are definitely wanting to come back next summer!

Upscale Vacation Rental

The exterior and surroundings speak for themselves. The interior is newly furnished with top of the line beds and bedding. Visited many other rental properties and the comfort here is unmatched for a rental. Would recomend and definitly will be back!

Extended Family Time

This large boathouse was a perfect place for our extended family to get together. It was clean and nicely decoratd. Our grandchildren enjoyed the paddle boat, played with the beanbag toss and the croquet set. We made good use of both the gas grill and the fire pit. Our older son loved the place so much he plans to rent it again in the near future.

Amazing Home!

We stayed here with our extended family...6 adults, 2 teens, 3 kids and an infant. The house is amazing to say the least. Everything we could have wanted was available to us. We brought our clothes and our food and were good to go for almost a week! Eddie was wonderful to deal with and very pleasant. We hope to stay here again in the future!

Great house, great lake.

My family----me, wife, and 2 kids stayed here in July 2009. It was amazing, we had a blast. The house is very nice and the beds are incredibly comfortable. It is so relaxing. We woke up early a couple of mornings and fished pre-dawn until the sun came up, it was wonderful----we caught bass and northern pike. We loved hanging out on the deck, it is very spacious and comfortable. We had no complaints at all. There is a nice grill on the patio which we used every night. The owner was a pleasure to deal with---everything was as advertised---very clean and comfortable.
