55Spot was as described. Happy with our visit and my dog Zelda got a chance to get really muddy and smelly playing in the water which she loved! Fencing was adequate for our needs.
55Beautiful space! Our dogs loved jumping off the dock into the lake and then running all around the yard. We would definitely visit again. The hosts were great communicators and friendly.
45We enjoyed your backyard- it was really nice- the fence was not as secure as we would have liked but other than that I would definitely recommend this spot- thanks Yami
45Great spot! We really enjoyed ourselves :) The only reason it’s 4/5 instead of 5 is because it’s not completely fenced in (because it really can’t be by the lake), so there could be a mishap in escaping if your dog doesn’t have good recall!
45Fun place for my dog to run and play in the water. It’s right on a lake and there was lots of grass/brush, which can be typical. My dog likes to eat grass so I had to pull her out. But we’ll still go back! She had lots of fun!
55Great scenic view! Our pup was able to sniff and run around. Bring bug spray especially at night. Other than that perfect place. Will be coming back :)
45The spot was great, the hosts were very friendly and accommodating! The yard was open and lush but the grass was long and it appears some sniff spot visitors didn’t clean up after their pets.
55Great backyard and very nice people. When needing to ask a question I just went on the app and asked and they came right out to help! Also lovely lake and has shade for very hot days. Happy they provided a hose/water bowl because my dogs were thirsty. Overall great experience
45I recently had the pleasure of visiting a private dog park that I absolutely loved. The park was cozy and had beautiful scenery that made it a perfect spot for my furry friend and me to spend some quality time together. The best part was that there was plenty of space for my dog to run around and play without any worries. The owners were very respectful of our privacy and made sure that we had everything we needed to enjoy our time there. They were also very easy to access, which made the whole experience even more enjoyable.
55This was such a fun spot for my dog to run around and swim. The owner was super nice as well. I will definitely be going back to swim and kayak next time! Note that this is not the best spot for highly reactive dogs as there are lots of people and dogs at the public beach next door, who are only separated by water. Fortunately mine is pretty social. But if your dog is okay with that, I highly recommend!

Location

Grayslake, Illinois

Description

Lakeside property. Beautiful spot to hang out with pups, have a picnic and watch sunset. Dogs can swim in the lake. You are welcome to use the hose and move chairs around. Just as a heads-up, our yard is slightly on the wild side. If you are looking for pristine lawn or manicured bushes, we are not that. We have jobs and do not cut grass every other day...On the flip side, pretty much all the dog guests had a fun time exploring the property.

Cleanliness

70% of guests said this spot was as clean as expected during their visit.

Hazards

Open lake access on two sides of the yard. Please watch your dogs if they go in the water or they tend to escape. There might be sharp objects (eg. mussels) on the bottom.

Hi, I am a huge dog person. We have 2 pups in the house. I'm always looking for new, exciting, safe places for dogs and humans to hang out. Hope you enjoy our yard on the Gray's Lake. I am usually working from home. So if you or your dog(s) need anything, just knock on the door or send a text.
