An episode of House Hunters was filmed in Lake Carroll in 2017. The description was, "A couple is looking for a vacation home in Lake Carroll, Illinois to share with their three young daughters. They want a waterfront house with a rustic vibe, but their budget will not let them get everything on their wish list."

We are excited to have the Holt family join our community. If you would like to watch their journey to choose their "Lake House Get-Away in Illinois," click HERE to view on YouTube.
