A beautiful view of the harbor as it channels off into three different directions. Listen to the lapping waves from the wooden swing at water’s edge.

Was a very relaxing stay. Being by the water and having our own dock was the best asset to this vacation. Beautiful and serene. – Ronald R, Mundelein IL
This is our second time staying there. We liked it so much the first time that we went back this year. The sunsets are amazing from the living room. – Joanie R, Itasca IL
We had a wonderful time at Fish Tail Cottage. The harbor just minutes away from the main lake was perfect for us as we wanted to do a lot of fishing. The ability to dock the boat right out front was very convenient. The home was very accommodating for the 5 of us. We were very impressed with how well kept and clean the cottage was. Felt just like home! Thanks for the great time! – Jenifer K, Mount Pleasant
Have stayed at this home on a few occasions. A wonderful place with great fishing from the docks and the neighbors across the road are very friendly - Bob D, Wood Dale IL
