About Alisa Taylor

I am a married to Andy and Mum ( I can't say Mom as I am British!!) to 2 wonderful children Amelia is 16 and Adam is 14, they are the big loves of my life.

We moved from England in 2007 with Andy's job.

We are from a town called Heswall which in a peninsula on the west coast of England.

It is about 8 miles from Liverpool.

Our house overlooked the Welsh Mountains and the Irish Sea.

Here we live in Burr Ridge, a suburb 19 miles west of Chicago.

We bought the lake house as the area reminded us of 'home', quiet and beautiful.

Chicago is amazing but can sometimes feel a little busy, even out here in the berbs.

We went to Michigan and rented a few homes for the weekend, fell in love with the area and bought Liverpool Lodge.

We started renting it out as Adam plays football and we found that over the summer months we were not using the house at all. He started training in July and practice was every day. We also starting spending extended periods back in England over the summer months.

Alisa Taylor purchased this house in 2009

Why Alisa Taylor chose Fennville

We rented quite a few homes in the area and in this price bracket, nothing compares!

The house was not bought with rental in mind so we decorated and furnished it for ourselves.

It has use of a private dock and the lake is a wonderful fishing and sports lake with a public ramp and we can provide details for pontoon boat rental, delivered to the dock

When we decided to rent it we wanted to keep the same feel... comfy, modern, fresh and clean and very welcoming.

We did not want to maximize occupancy by cramming every room with bunk beds, which would enable us to charge more, we wanted guests to enjoy the house in the way we do.

A beautiful retreat to relax and unwind.

Superb local GOLF courses with rates as low as $40 a round with a cart. Club rental also available at most courses.

What makes this house unique

We chose the house as it was brand new and modern and in a great, central location. It has use of a private dock and the lake is a wonderful fishing and sports lake with a public ramp and we can provide details for pontoon boat rental, delivered to the dock

The layout of the house is perfect for entertaining, a table that seats 8, a breakfast bar that can seat another 4. The living/entertaining area is all open plan.

The lower level has another large entertaining area with a larger sectional sofa and flat screen tv.

The house is perfect for more than one family sharing the space as it has 2 separate living spaces.

The house also has a screened in porch with comfy seating and a swing chair to relax and enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine.

There is another little deck off the kitchen with a table and chairs.

the yard is large and great for children to run around in.

We are across the street from the lake, approx 50 yards, we have our own dock.

So if you wanted to hire a boat or wave runner it would be right there!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Friends, family and new grandbaby. Meals and cocktails on the porch - loved the screened room !

What a lovely place to stay and invite others to share !

Cant wait til next time :-)

Beautiful Home to Enjoy with Family and Friends

  • 5 of 5

The Liverpool Lodge was the perfect place to spend a snowy new years with friends. The house was spotless when we arrived and Alisa was super accommodating in our requests. There are plenty of beds, so this house is ideal for large groups. The kitchen was also extremely well-equipped, which made it perfect for making meals for big groups.

Beautiful and extremely clean home!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our annual girls weekend! It was spacious for 8 of us to all have a comfortable place to sit and chat in the evenings. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spotless! The kitchen provided everything we needed. It was a very rainy weekend so we didn't get to enjoy the outdoor features but we still had a wonderful time enjoying the views from the large windows. Alysa was very prompt, kind and accommodating! She was great to work with and I would highly recommend her home!!
