    Add stated a pool and then when you booked it you had to pay another HOA fee of 100.00 before we got there, they changed it to 300.00 but we already had a contract. Can't use the beach, playground or pool without paying the fee. The booking should list that. Minimal pool hours too The house was very nice. Lots of room. We will probably look elsewhere next year due to the pool drama.

  • A Lovely Getaway


    Lake Thunderbird is a delightful gem in the heart of Illinois and this property is a gem in a gem. If anything, it's even more marvelous than the photos. Take a walk, go fishing, kayak, tour the area ~ all can be done from the comfort and luxury of this dwelling. The hosts have thought of everything down to the last detail! We'll be going back!

  • Beautiful place, private access to lake, amazing nature!


    Loved our stay at the lakehouse. The house itself was beautiful and clean, everything is well thought, enjoyed kayaking (there are 2 kayaks in the house). Foosball table was awesome, had some amazing "tournaments". I wold definitely go back to this house, it's added to our favorites list!
