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 now in college ! and Adam is 16 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

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 across the street on private beach/park area 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. T he lower level has another large entertaining area with a larger sectional sofa and flat screen TV.........AND MORE BEING ADDED SEE ABOVE 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!

Beautiful house with tons of stuff to do!
This house was beautiful and had so much to do on the property, you dont need to go anywhere. Plenty of new board games for adults and kids, bicycles in the garage, fire pit in backyard, pool table and air hockey in the basement.
Great relaxing getaway
The house was more than what we thought. It was spacious enough for 8 of us. The house was inviting and loved hanging out on the covered porch area. The lake is right across the street and Lake Michigan is a short 10 minute drive. Plenty of sightseeing in the area or you can just hang out at the house and relax. Will definitely stay there again if I am in the area
Everything was as expected and a beautiful property in a beautiful neighborhood. Owner is extremely nice and very responsive.
Thanks so much , glad you liked it Mark. You were great guests
Perfect Family House for a Getaway
The house itself was great and everything you could want for a rental property. Although I wish it was a bit closer to Holland/Saugatuck it was not a bad drive in to those neighborhoods!
Thanks Kaitlyn glad you liked the home, come stay longer its a chill place when you don't have to rush about we love it as the opposite pace of Chicago
Awesome home with everything that our family needed.
Beautiful home with plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable.
So glad you enjoyed your stay!
October is one of the best times to visit the area.
Thanks so much for your review.
The Taylor Family
Beautiful house, must drive for water sports
The house itself was beautiful. Many mornings were spent on the screened in porch or around the kitchen table playing card games. The communal area seating upstairs was a great, large area to relax together. Kitchen was big enough for multiple people to work at once. There is a bean bag set that was put to good use in the spacious backyard.
The reason this did not get five stars is that the dock that goes with the property was in very shallow water that did not allow for fishing and the boat rental place on Hutchins Lake shut down, so any boat, kayak, water bike, paddle board or any type of rental had to be done at a different body of water a minimum of 20 minutes away. The area is close to a couple vineyards, a cidery and a goat cheese creamery. If you're looking for a vacation where you don't have to drive, this is not the place to stay. If you want a semi-quiet neighborhood with lots of time spent on the property, this a good choice.
Thanks for the review.
Glad you enjoyed the house , sorry that we missed the chance to send you rental information for boat rental. People who don't have a boat who want to rent have typically found places locally or asked us in advance and we have given details of those places that will deliver a boat to the lake (we use that facility ourselves) We will be more proactive in asking in the future
Glad you had fun though
