About Grant Horn
We have been HomeAway owners since 2015 and enjoy sharing our home with others when we are not there to take advantage of it ourselves. We strive to provide the best possible experience for every guest. Our permanent residence is close enough that we can respond quickly if needed and regularly maintain the property.
Grant Horn purchased this House in 2015
Why Grant Horn chose Waterford
Relaxation in a cozy atmosphere with serene view and the feeling of being away from it all. Priced affordably for everyone without cleaning fees, management fees, or hidden costs for groups of six or less, but can accommodate a larger family for slightly more if needed.
What makes this House unique
Our home is located on a peninsula which is bordered by the Fox River and Elm Island Bay. The bay looks like a small lake, but is connected to the river which is navigable with any outboard motor for nearly seven miles. Lake Tichigan is a beautiful lake north of our home that is a gorgeous, winding river ride away, boasting depths of 60 feet, sandbars, a nature conservancy, great fishing, wakeboarding, waterskiing, tubing, and swimming. It is the home of an annual hot air balloon festival, a fireworks show launched from the center of the lake on the 4th of July, and of course an annual boat tie-up party with a band on a barge. Waterford has fun for all seasons including hiking, biking, fall colors, Bird watching, ice fishing, cross country skiing, and two downhill ski hills within 25 minutes of our home. Elm Island Bay is home to swans, blue herons, sand hill cranes, ducks, bluegills, bass, catfish, and even some walleye and northern pike. Our pier/dock stays in the water and ice year round without damage, allowing anglers to fish as soon as the ice is gone and up to the minute that it first freezes.

Great place to get away!
Everything was as expected, and great communication from the owner. We were also pleasantly surprised by the Kayaks, paddle boat and firewood that they had ready for us! Made for a great stay.
This was the perfect place for a little getaway and enjoy being by the water! Everything was clean, well-kept, and organized. Grant is the type of host that everyone wants to rent from, attentive, communicative, and kind. We can't wait to come back!
Nice cabin perfect for a weekend getaway.
We celebrated my sisters birthday at this cute riverfront home. Great communication from the owner. We loved the home and area. We enjoyed fishing off the pier, kayaking, and relaxing around the campfire at night.
