Great place

  • 5 of 5

I had a great weekend at Halina's place. My now fiancé and I actually got engaged there this past weekend! The place was great to celebrate with family and we really enjoyed our stay. Halina was very responsive to to questions and a request I had about the house. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice relaxing weekend away.

HomeAway Rental At Fox Lake, Illinois

  • 4 of 5

Excellent accomidations. Outstanding view to the lake and the sunset in the West. The house is very well furnished.

The garage and utility room should be cleaned up and organized better for

your first impression entering the house.

Owner's Response: Dear Richard, Thank you for a very nice review. We appreciate that. We always try to keep our house to the highest standards. I've had a maintenance man change some lights in the front of the garage and he didn't clean up after himself, I apologized for that. When it comes to the utility room, I've already had a service install a new door to the laundry/ utility room. Summers are very busy and we try our best to coordinate any extra maintenance without interrupting our quests. Thank you again for choosing our home. The best to you and your family. Respectfully Halina
