This is where wealthy Chicagoans went for their summers starting before the turn-of-the-century - 1900, of course. And it's still a great vacation spot.

The lake and surrounding area is beautiful. I highly recommed renting a boat or taking a tour on the lake. Sometimes the lake is calm and on windy days it is quite choppy.
