The personal touches were above and beyond , my name on the mail box by the front door, a welcome sign at the desk as you enter also had a personalized greeting for me and my guests. So much to see in every room, my mother in law was in heaven playing the slot machine while listening to Elvis on the jukebox. The hot tube was a must do everyday of our stay. I could go on and on but the best way to experience this wonderful place is to stay there.” [/su_expand]

We brought our 4 adult children, niece and her baby plus our moms and two dogs. We were greeted by the caretaker who had a roaring fire going to warm us up after our snowy drive. He took enough time to show us everything in the house and made sure we had his phone number in case any questions came up during our stay. The house was fantastic with so much room to spread out. There were cozy little nooks if anyone wanted some alone time, but we mostly hung out in the game room. Our favorite game was “I Spy”- we played it on and off all weekend because there is so much to “spy”! The upstairs living room was warm and inviting. I spent a few hours curled up by the fireplace reading while the kids played video games and watched movies. The six bedrooms gave us all enough space that made it feel more than a home away from home. Because the temps were sub-zero during our stay, we didn’t do much adventuring outside. Our daughter took the dogs for a walk on the channel a few times. If it had been warmer, we would have been out on that lake ice skating. I would recommend this house for any family gatherings, couples weekends, girlfriend getaways etc. Brian was easy to deal with and answered all of our questions before our stay. It was a nice, easy drive from Northern Illinois. Our family wants to go back to explore this house again! ”  [/su_expand]

The fishing off the dock is wonderful, the slot machine gives money, the swings are absolutely phenomenal, the sleeping quarters are peaceful, and the hot tub is a slice of heaven. There is so much to do and see. They have really thought of everything and even had games to play and bikes to ride. My husband and I took our three children (ages 1,8, and 11) for Memorial Day and they all had the best time. There is definitely something for every age group. Brian and Tom also checked on us throughout our stay to make certain we had everything we needed and they are so thoughtful. We can’t wait to stay again!”  [/su_expand]

The kids loved the pool table and arcade games, the adults loved the bar, and of course the hot tub was loved by all. With all the eclectic pieces in the house, we had an awesome scavenger hunt. The rooms were clean and the necessities were provided. The grounds were beautiful so we even did family photos. If you are looking for a unique experience this is the place to book!”  [/su_expand]

[su_expand height=”180″] Nicole “We just got back home today from Adeline’s and holy cow! It was a group of 12 and every one of us were blown away by this house! The Jacuzzi is HUGE and has a deep section to it. We had a blast in there. So much bigger then what we thought. So many neat things to observe like random notes in bottles signed by other guest. It was almost like a mini House on The Rock in wacky way. We stayed three nights and I would take the advise I got from Brian the owner …. stay longer! We were all so sad to go and wish we would have booked AT LEAST 4 nights. There is something for everyone and plenty of space to get your own quiet time if you want. We could not have picked a better place. Seriously. So amazing!!!! GO SEE IT NOW!”  [/su_expand]

[su_expand height=”130″] Kate “Wow, this place is one of a kind!! No picture will do this place justice, you just have to see it for yourself. It’s perfect for large groups getaways. We traveled with small children and everyone had an awesome time, I can only imagine how much fun it will be for just adults, will have to come back in Spring or Summer, but Winter is just as great …from ice skating to ice fishing to a relaxing time in the XL Jacuzzi and drink by the beautiful fireplace (there are two) We didn’t have to go anywhere, this house provides non stop entertainment! Brian was a pleasure to deal with and so was Tom, the caretaker. We will definitely be back!”  [/su_expand]

[su_expand height=”160″] Alexa “This place was so magnificent. Right on the water with so many fun activities and features. We never got tired of walking through the home and discovering all that it had to offer. It far exceeded our expectations and we cannot wait to return in the future. The owner and all of the crew that assisted our stay were extraordinarily kind and helpful. Between the amazing indoor fireplace, the pool-sized hot tub, the fire pole, the wrap around porch and endless seats and swings there was never a dull moment. We spent significant time on the water fishing, had great laughs and caught many fish. Anytime we walked through a room, no matter how many times we had already been in it, there was always something new that caught our eye. If you are looking for a secluded getaway and stumble upon Adeline’s House of Cool, don’t think twice; You will be so happy you chose it. I hope you find your stay to be as amazing as ours was. Cheers.”  [/su_expand]

We were constantly finding new interesting decorations. Even on a Rainy day there is more than enough to do at the house alone. My friend group plans on visiting again next year.”  [/su_expand]

[su_expand height=”140″] Brian “This truly was one of the best summer vacation experiences I ever had. The place is amazing. When you think you found one interesting aspect of the place, the next will only surpass it. The hot tube is incredible. Plenty of things to keep the kids occupied. The romantic setting it provided for my wife and I, brought us back to our newlywed days. The fishing was better than I expected. We will be sure to visit again and often. Next year we plan to try our hands out with it as one of our winter escape. It didn’t work out this year with the grind of work. This place will relieve that winter grind like no other.”  [/su_expand]

[su_expand height=”130″] Vicki “My sisters and I just came back from a great family trip. My mother was turning 50 and we threw her a surprise weekend party. We were a little skeptical about bringing smaller children, but they did great and there was a ton of room in each area to just drop a large pack and play. Mom had a great time and was so pleased with the antiques all around. My husband and brother in laws actually caught some fish right in the channel that the house is on. Brian was so accommodating and gave us great suggestions for going out to dinner and antiquing in the surrounding towns. It was a great time for the family to get together and just slow down and connect. We will be going back every year for a reunion!”  [/su_expand]

[su_expand height=”100″] Phillip “It was a great weekend I spent with my family at Adeline’s. The pictures don’t really express how cool and fun this place is. My kids stayed busy the whole time we were there playing hide and seek, exploring all the decorations throughout the house, playing arcade games, etc… Brian – the owner has mentioned he build the House of Cool for his own family. This place is truly a family weekend getaway. We were all thrilled while there and sad when it was time to come head back to reality. I recommend Adeline’s house of cool for anyone looking for a quick weekend getaway in Wisconsin or a place that is a short distance from Chicago.”  [/su_expand]

[su_expand height=”130″] Antoinette “I have had the pleasure of staying at Adeline’s on multiple occasions and it is by far one of the most fun places to get away to with friends and family alike. The charming property has fun & fascinating nick-knacks and pieces of time and history scattered throughout. As well as some of the beautiful works of stained glass that delight the eyes. I remember vividly my first time walking in the main doors greeted by music playing through the speakers and the warm woodwork beckoning me to set down my bags in one of the many rooms and get ready to unwind and let the fun memories commence. And oh yeah that HOT TUB absolutely memorable. I would highly recommend staying here for virtually any occasion. Girls getaway, corporate team building, family fun. I promise you won’t be disappointed.”  [/su_expand]

[su_expand height=”130″] James “Unusually deep hot tub. But really, you just have to see the place. Architecturally, it’s an abundance of nooks and crannies, decked out in rustic wooden splendor. And there are fascinating items everywhere – for example, a stuffed grizzly with a salmon in its mouth. It’s like stepping into the country retreat of an eccentric millionaire who decided to collect every fascinating object they ever came across. Adeline’s House of the Extraordinary…”  [/su_expand]

The house and sprawling outdoor space are beautiful and very well maintained, complete with the most incredible giant indoor hot tub we’ve ever seen and 2 cozy indoor fireplaces. My friends and I loved the house and plan to make it part of our annual girls weekend tradition.”  [/su_expand]
