    The Leisure Village Fox Lake is the best kept secret in Lake County , Il. Friendly residents, well maintained homes and beautiful grounds with walking paths make every day a treasure. I am a retired real estate agent and when I discovered it I “had to have it”. What attracted me was the peaceful, full of mature trees environment with desired security, a safe feeling. It is a gated community. I love living here, it feels like being on vacation.

    I'm proud to say I am 82, going on 70! Been living here for about 10 years now and really enjoy it. The people are friendly and are eager to lend a hand. I borrowed some tools from a neighbor the other day and we've been watching out for each other in the harsh winter we just got through. Finally, spring has arrived! Leisure Village is an older neighborhood but so am I, it's the perfect fit!
