The space
The Nest has been entirely renovated and everything is new for you and Summer 2022. Be one of the first to whip up a gourmet meal for 12 in the chef's kitchen complete with all the essentials. Or, leave the cooking to someone else and pour yourself a glass of perfectly chilled rose from the wine fridge, and relax on the massive front or back deck. Delight in one of the 3 new bathrooms with heated tile floors and fluffy towels. Impress your family by building a campfire and turning on the overhead string lights for even more ambiance. Enshrine your name at the top of the leaderboard on the arcade in the game room or challenge your friends to a game of Cornhole ("Bags" for proper Midwesterners). Tired of the great outdoors? Stream a movie for the kids after a full day on the beach through one of the two 4K TV's with Roku. Or, gather in the lounge to play one of the premium board games, and brush off your piano skills for a little karaoke. If work beckons, head to the dedicated office space in the guest room. The Nest is equipped with a whole home mesh wi-fi network, and has consistently reliable high speed access. After a full day, sleep soundly on the new luxury firm mattresses topped with the same refreshing linens used at the Four Seasons Hotel.

*Note - 4th bedroom is a sleeping loft, and open to the great room below. It is equipped with a brand new portable air conditioner for comfort. It is best suited for older/mature children and adults. There is a custom metal baby gate that blocks entry to both the loft and the basement should you wish to keep children from climbing either sets of stairs.

We've tried to think of everything you need to host an incredible family get away and make lasting memories, but specifically, here is what is included:
-All linens, bath towels and beach towels.
-Paper towels, toilet paper, dishwasher pods and laundry detergent.
-Upmarket kitchen outfit - carafe and pod coffee maker, toaster, blender, dutch oven, crock pot, waffle maker, hand mixer, serveware, & tools. Catering dishes & glassware for 24. Kids cups, plates, bowls and utensils.

Neighborhood overview
The Nest is nestled in one of the best beach neighborhoods on Geneva Lake - Country Club Estates. Our neighbors are wonderful, and several are full time residents. Still, it's easy to forget that you're in the middle of a neighborhood with the backyard that extends into the wooded conservancy with easy mowed walking trails. But, please do be mindful of all of our neighbors - those with two feet and four by observing quiet hours (10pm-7am) and not feeding, petting or approaching wildlife (deer! turkeys! chipmunks!) that are often found in the back, front or side yards. Watch out for deer while driving through the neighborhood as well.

Garage and driveway has comfortable parking for 5-6 cars. Street parking is not available at any time.
Getting around
*15 minute walk to the association's private sand beach and pier which provides up to 4 beach chairs per day and ability to reserve 2 stand up paddle boards for a 2 hour rental.

-Note the walk includes a steep gravel stair, and a portion on a main road. There is a double bike trailer converted to a jogging stroller located in the garage for your use which we find easiest to haul our 2 young children.

-You may also choose to drive less than 2 minutes down the road and park for free in the association's private parking lot with included pass.

*Association beach is adjacent to the Village of Fontana's large public beach access (we provide parking and beach passes for for here as well!), and walkable to local favorites like Chuck's, Gordy's, The Coffee Mill & Blue Haven Ice Cream.

*Be sure to walk the iconic lake shore path and take in the breathtaking century-old estates.

*20 minute drive to the City of Lake Geneva proper.

*Pick up all your grocery essentials at Daniels Foods, located on the way into the neighborhood, or order meals for the week at Thyme-On-The-Lake if you prefer to leave the cooking to someone else.
