Why Margaret Murphy chose Lake Villa

It was bought as a family retreat back in 1970. It is a very special place hard to believe it is only an hour drive from Chicago.

What makes this estate unique

Tennis, private 9 hole golf course, fishing, relaxing in the many great rooms and reading in the sun on the deck over looking the lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is the most amazing property I have ever stayed at. The facilities are exceptional and you have your own pool, tennis court and private 9 hole golf course. The house is spectacular and it sits on 80 acres on a Lake.

My family had the best time and we will be returning next year.

Perfect for family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We held a celebration of life for my mom at Tir Na Nog for Thanksgiving 2017. Family members came from all over the country and all ten bedrooms were full, although it felt very private. The gourmet kitchen and butler's pantry was well appointed, with every gadget, pot or pan you could dream of! Will be back again during the summers months to take advantage of the beautiful and inviting grounds, golf course and swimming pool.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

As noted by 18 family members, ages 2 through 86, the things they enjoyed most about the vacation at Tir Na Nog Estate: It's so easy to find a private place to read a book or just contemplate, beds are comfortable, bathrooms are so nice. The property is beautiful, Mark the caretaker is the best. Enjoyed eating ice cream cones and being with the cousins. Enjoyed playing tennis and swimming in the pool. Favorite things were being with the cousins and Gi Gi and my bedroom. It didn't seem crowded even with 19 people, house is great size and great layout, love it when you wake up in the morning you hear birds, not traffic. Liked the pool a lot, really liked the tennis court and also liked being with the family. Enjoyed the pool and playing tennis and being with family, and enjoyed the golf course. Greatly enjoyed the serenity and tranquility of the Tir Na Nog Estate. The caretaker was very professional, he took care of our every need and was the most respectful and polite person. This was way better than a cruise, no wild and crazy cruise director to deal with, and no one got seasick. Liked the pool, golf course, tennis court and basketball court, and Mark was really helpful. Enjoyed watching over my little cousins and playing with them, also enjoyed playing tennis with everyone. Love that there is plenty of room for everyone in the house and there are plenty of things to do outside. Lots of space, no loud cars and traffic, very peaceful. Loved the patio view of the lake over coffee in the morning and cocktails at night and enjoyed having enough bedrooms for everyone. Gazing out over the lake at sunset was the perfect ending to the perfect days of Tir Na Nog. All 19 of the family members had a wonderful time being together and enjoying the house and entire property. Tir Na Nog is the greatest place for a family vacation.

The 1 year old did not write or express what he liked best, but he smiled a LOT all week, so we know he had fun !

Fairy Tale Wedding

  • 5 of 5

People are still talking about our wedding FIVE years later. That's how special Tir Na Nog is. Being able to have our family stay with us at the beautifully decorated estate made it very meaningful to all of us. On the day of the wedding, my husband fished with his best man (practically right out the front door), while relatives golfed the private golf course and my sister-in-law and I went for a run in the beautiful scenery around the estate. The day after the wedding, we all lounged by the large inground pool to appreciate every minute we had together at this amazing destination. We are planning a family reunion there next. . .
