Description from owner

Special April Rate: One FREE night with 2 paid nights!

Welcome to our family or girls get-away vacation lakefront retreat which is furnished to accommodate 2-3 families and sleeps up to 10 individuals. We recently redecorated our home with high end furniture, antiques and new Pottery Barn bedding which will give you a true "home-away-from-home" feeling. You can be assured that we are experienced vacation home owners who meet the needs of our guests based on our 4.95 rating for 2015 on another vacation rental site as well as a 4.9 rating (based on over 50 reviews) on another home we previously rented.

Our home is set on a hill with 100 year oak trees in our lushly landscaped front yard while the rear of the home has a 180 degree panoramic view of Lake Delavan. There is a large deck with patio furniture where you can watch the sun rise and set over the lake.

During the day, you can relax on the deck while watching your children swim in the lake. If you have a boat, you can launch it at the nearby neighborhood marina and dock it at our pier (limit of one boat please). You can walk along the lake in either direction and see the many other beautiful lake homes. In our front yard you can play bags or ladder ball.

Lake Geneva is just a 15 minute drive and there you can enjoy the many great shops and restaurants. You can take a boat tour of Lake Geneva or walk along the lakefront and see the many incredible homes of the "rich and famous"!

In the evening, while enjoying your favorite beverages, you can watch the moonlight glisten on the shimmering water in complete solitude. Our front yard is set among the tall oak trees and outdoor chairs are provided so you can sit out at night and admire the stars and tell ghost stories!

You will park your cars in our spacious driveway ( we can accommodate up to 5 cars) and then walk up the long curving sidewalk through our secluded yard with the many 100+ year old oak trees. You will then enter our home which is furnished to maximize the pleasure of family gatherings (including air conditioning throughout) while ensuring individual privacy.

When you walk into our home, you will see our large recently updated fully furnished kitchen which has all the amenities which you would have in your own home. Next to the kitchen is a large dining area. Adjacent to the dining area is a large family room with a gas fireplace and windows on three sides which provide spectacular south, west and east lake views. From the family room, you can walk out onto the large elevated deck which has a Weber grill and patio furniture with a large rectangular umbrella shade.

Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms with Pottery Barn bedding and 2 full baths. In the very large master bedroom with a cathedral ceiling and which has an elevated 2 sided lake view, there is a king bed, baby crib, large closets and a private master bath with standup shower. The other two bedrooms each have queen beds (one of these bedrooms has a nice lake view) and they share the adjacent full bathroom which has a shower over the tub.

In the English basement, we have furnished it to be the perfect 'hangout', especially if you have children that want their own space (and which you will be very glad to provide them with!) There is a large rec room with a 49 inch LED smart TV, a professional quality foosball table and a futon which can sleep 2 individuals. In a separate area with its own door is a large bedroom with bunk beds (a twin bed and a full bed) along with a full bathroom including a standup shower.

We have high speed internet (60 meg download) and cable with HBO and Showtime. We have great central A/C as well.

As mentioned, my wife and I are experienced vacation home hosts and we previously rented our other Victorian home for several years so you can be assured that we will be fully responsive to your needs. We know that you want to have a stress free vacation and we will ensure that everything we control is done timely and correctly.

Please note that our home is in an area where our neighbors are in close proximity and we want to ensure that our neighbors' ability to enjoy their tranquility is not impeded. As a result, this is not a property that is suited for house parties or bachelor/bachelorette parities and if that is your intent, we strongly encourage you to consider other properties that allow that activity. Please email or call for availability.

Beds: 1 King Bed, 2 Queen Beds, 1 Double Bed, 1 Twin Bed, 1 Sofa Bed, 1 Crib
