Photos and Description of the Grayslake vacation cottage rental

3BR, 2 BA on quiet springfed lake

Once inside this charming lakeside cottage you’ll find it hard to believe the city of Chicago is less than 50 miles away. Nestled at the foot of a hill along a spring-fed non-motor lake is the Old Chicago Inn’s Lake County Cottage. This two story, three bedroom cottage can sleep up to eight people. It has a large, fully equipped kitchen with gas range and dishwasher, laundry facilities, spacious living areas with wood burning fireplace and satellite television, a master bedroom with custom picture window for incredible sunrise views of the lake, a large deck equipped with propane grill and four person hot tub, large yard with many trees and of course your own lake shore beach with outdoor fire pit and an assortment of inflatable floats, a four person paddle boat, and a canoe.

Ample parking is available in the cottage’s circular drive. Pets welcome with deposit. Easy access to the city via the Metra train system.
