About Mike Wilson

I've been coming to this property for over 50 years, my Aunt bought this place in 1965, I purchased it in 2013. I love being close to the lake, many memories made here, enjoy hosting others as additional memories are made. Very nice design, two homes right on the lake front with a nice yard and seawall secluded between the two. This place was designed for summer fun. I stay in the smaller home and I'm here most of the summer. I have a couple of my own gatherings here each year, this place is setup perfectly for family get togethers, lots of fun activities or just get comfortable and relax.

Note that I also manage another vacation rental property. This additional property is also listed on VRBO, #796263. I encourage you to take a look at the listing, note that this luxury home is located within a half mile of Indiana Beach. I'm very excited about adding this property as an option and may add others in the future, please feel free to contact me at 312-802-7076 with questions about either property.

Why Mike Wilson chose Monticello

This property seems ideal for family vacations (reunions, holidays), group getaway, golf groups, sports events, fishing trip (note boat launch mentioned below), lots of possibilities. This lake home started out as one good sized cottage with a small cottage located on the lakefront. Has had many updates over the years including attaching two cottages into one unit. The lakefront bedroom can serve as an isolated unit, has kitchen, bathroom and door.

What makes this house unique

There is a cement boat ramp on this property, very convenient for launching a boat. Large 8' x 16' floating pier with 120' cement sea wall. Indoor and Outdoor Movies, Indoor theatre with ceiling mounted projector, 6 foot pull down projection screen very nice surround sound system and three sofas. Outdoor theatre is very popular this year, very cool experience sitting around the fire pit watching movies. Outdoor movies does require good weather conditions and projector set up, 100 inch by 160 inch projection screen is up all season. Both projectors can connect to the internet for NetFlix etc... and will play DVDs as well. You might want to consider bringing your laptop or tablet which can in most cases be readily input into the projector. Also note very nice speaker set up in the lake yard for the outdoor movies or just listening to music. Four outdoor speakers surrounding the firepit provide a very unique listening experience. Set up in a manner that allows audio input from your phone, ipod or computer. For music I typically pull up Spotify from my phone or laptop computer, IPod works well too. Popcorn maker, makes great movie style popcorn. Firewood included, I keep a good supply of firewood on hand. I know what a hassle it is to find firewood while on vacation, Some folks bring their own which is always appreciated but don't worry I will always have plenty of firewood. Note that this is a year round rental with reduced rates during the off season. Scenic here all year long, after all you are located right on the water. Works well for holiday gatherings (lots of cooking equipment), sporting events (theatre room), winter getaway, etc...

Awesome! Love this place!! Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt at home. Clean, well stocked, plenty of sleeping arrangements. We really wouldn't have needed to bring anything except clothes and food but even the cupboards and refrigerator had many items available. One evening my granddaughter had a tummy ache and we were going to run out and grab something for her but came across oyster crackers in one of the cabinets! Mike the owner was very gracious and accommodating. Enjoyed talking with him and reminiscing about Indiana Beach days from when I used to go there as a teenager. Overall our stay was definitely 5 stars! We were so sad the morning we had to check out and even tried to extend it a couple more days but it was booked. Can't wait to go back and will be booking a much longer trip next time!

The property is beautiful. There is ample space and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful. The house comfortably sleeps 12 or more. There were more than enough amenities and equipment for any need or activity. The boat ramp is incredibly convenient, and we had so much fun boating! The owner (Mike) is great. He's incredibly personable and knows how to check in with his guests without remotely violating privacy. He let us stay even longer and use his driveway after we had already checked out! We're definitely coming back next summer. I can't recommend this place enough!
