About The Owner

Business owner and family of 3. We live in the western suburbs and enjoy the lake house year round for swimming, skiing & golfing.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why The Owner chose Illinois

I have been vacationing at Apple Canyon lake since the early 70's as a young child. I have great memories going up to the lake and spending time camping and having fun with my family. It is the same type of memories I wanted to create for my family.

What makes this house unique

Whether your a larger group or a single family looking to get away, this house will be a great destination; very comfortable and relaxing. We are in one of the best locations on the lake located next to the second sandy beach, right next to the hiking trail and at the water. We are also at the end of one of the longest bays on the lake which helps to keep it quite and peaceful!

Spacious Home, Quiet Cove, Beautiful Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay in this spacious home. Plenty of room and beds. Very relaxing get away.

Great location to see Apple Canyon Lake. There is a very nice sandy beach about a 3 minute walk from the backyard. Kids enjoyed swimming there. Water was much clearer than I was expecting.

Rented a boat for a day. Parked the boat at the Cove Restaurant and had a nice lunch on the lake. Then walked from the restaurant to the swimming pool, which the kids thoroughly enjoyed.

Highly recommended!

family vaca 2016

  • 5 of 5

thank you for sharing your lovely home. Once again it was great. Only had a few bees that were also enjoying the patio. :-) My family loves coming to the house and we truly enjoy the patio and fire pit. It would be a plus to have a dock to use. Last year was perfect. We could keep my son's boat there for use when we wanted. We rented the boat this year and were several times we did not get out to ride . For one reason or another, would be perfect to have the dock. Thanks for another great vacation for my family. We also have several friends down there and we were the place for the base for everyone to meet. It was awesome. thank you again. I hope you get to use your piece of paradise.

What a gorgeous home. The location is awesome and there is so much to do in this lil area. We spent our families vacation here and had a couple of family birthdays. My grand kids loved it and the adults also had a good time. The boat slip was as added plus. thanks for sharing your lovely home. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. There is a mama deer and her twins that came down for a drink every night at dusk. The wild life are not at all afraid to share there home. Bob and Julie made the arrangements and entry to the home very easy. And if there was a problem they kept in touch. Awesome service

It was an awesome vacation for my family. thank you

Relaxation reunion

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a reunion time together at this lovely home. Would definitely rent this home again. The accommodations were clean and comfy with plenty of space. The deck looks over the lake and you can walk down and fish or boat in an instant. The beautiful fire pit was a definite favorite place to hang out and talk while making s'mores. The owners were quick to answer and questions and tried to make our visit perfect! And it was!!

We were extremely happy with the accommodations at this house. Plenty of room for all of us. Kids enjoyed fishing off the dock and the small beach nearby was adequate for them. Pool was very nice, also. We would definitely go back.
