Beautiful Cozy 2-Bedroom Cottage
About Rosemarie Nilson
A love of boating, fishing and the outdoors has been embedded in us from our youth. I spent my teenage years on the Chain water skiing and boating with my family. Jim and I opted to live where we had many happy memories, where people are friendly and life is exciting and fun -- the Chain O’Lakes. We feel truly blessed to be able to live in a vibrant and historic community and most importantly, to be close to those that matter most – our family and friends.
Rosemarie Nilson purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Rosemarie Nilson chose Fox Lake
Why Escape to Fox Lake? The Village of Fox Lake is a vibrant community rich with history, wonderful people and just a short distance from many delightful attractions, such as: • Chain O’Lakes State Park • Downtown Chicago • Great America • Gurnee Mills • Pleasant Prairie Premium Outlets • Volo Auto Museum • Wilmot Mountain Fox Lake is part of the Chain O’Lakes that is comprised of 10 connecting lakes – Bluff, Catherine, Channel, Fox, Grass, Marie, Nippersink, Petite, Pistakee, Redhead as well as the Fox River. The Chain O’Lakes provides year round enjoyment for boating, fishing, snowmobiling, bird watching and ice fishing. In addition, the Chain O'Lakes allows for a wide range of outdoor recreational activities with special events throughout the summer sponsored by local businesses, including boat races, fishing tournaments, Venetian night, fireworks and live musical performances. Your Great Escape is just minutes from downtown Fox Lake – and moments from great memories.

This worked great for us having the dogs. Cabin was close to the lake but not directly on it . Not fancy but comfortable which is what we wanted. Area was quiet but it is winter and I imagine summer is a lot different being on the chain of lakes!
Owner decorated for the christmas holiday for us! That was a nice touch!
Perfect location, perfect cottage
Clean, organized, great views but close to drive to anything
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. The location is great and very convenient. The neighborhood is private and lovely. The cottage is small but very cozy and has everything you need for a great stay.
Great get away!
We enjoyed a great get away with our daughter & family and our son! Such a warm welcome with fresh flowers & champagne! And we loved the dock area, fire pit & the fact that there were hardly any steps to the lake for our toddler grandkids! Lots of fun to be had here!
We are delighted that you and your family had a wonderful time! We look forward to your return!
Easy check in & out process. Cottage was very clean & hosts were very helpful.
Fox Lake is gorgeous. We enjoyed visiting the lake and loved being able to walk to dinner. The location was perfect and the place was clean, organized and super cute. The hosts were extremely friendly and even helped me when my dog ran away (we got her back). Thanks for a very memorable stay!
You are very welcome!
Your home away from home oasis is:

Walking distance to El Puerto restaurant for an awesome Margarita
A Thursday night away from watching some thrilling drag boat racing at Blarney’s Island
A Sunday morning away from having a “meal in a glass” Bloody Mary at Route 12 Bar and Grill
A click away from access to seeing some amazing live bands
