“Amazing deal”
Reviewed 15 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014
person found this review helpful

Honestly, probably the best deal if you're looking for a lake cabin within close proximity to Chicago. Clean, quaint log cabin has a lot of history. Only 1/2 a block from the lake. And Ray is an exceptionally gracious host. Highly recommended. My family will definitely be staying there again.

“Simple with all the Basics - Great location!”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This cabin has all the basics for a quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. I loved that it is pet-friendly and has a big yard with a grill and fire pit. The kitchen has most basic tools but if you need anything special - like a colander - bring it with you. The house could use some updates and a good deep cleaning of the carpet (it is pet friendly, after all) and there are some mold issues in the basement, so if you are sensitive to mold/mildew, it could be an issue. Overall, I would recommend if you are not fussy about luxury accommodations. The location is hard to beat - 1/2 block from the lake and close to Woodstock, Richmond, and Glacial Park Conservation area for antiquing, shopping, hiking, etc. Lake Geneva, WI is also only 20 min. away.

Thank you for your stay at the Cabin on Top of Cedar! I am sorry that you did not find the Cabin stocked appropriately and felt that there is a mold issue in the basement. There is not mold in the basement, rather it is musty from lack of use. I do rent the cabin as a basic rustic cabin, not a play on words, but rather reality of the cabin. This is a no frills, rustic stay less than an hour from Chicago or Milwaukee.
