Other things to note
One of the last Red Covered Bridges in the U.S., is located just a short 15 min ride to the beautiful historic town of Princeton. Many lovely shops, antique mall, historical museums, the I&M Canal, for bike riding and there's even a Walmart!

The Illinois River Marina is also close to home and has an outdoor patio to eat and have a drink overlooking the river. That is located in the town of Henry, which is much smaller than Princeton, but has your basic needs such a church, groceries, small restaurant/bars, gas and a antique shop.

Putnam, Illinois, United States

The beauty of the country, the quiet and peaceful days, nature walks, fishing, sitting by the lake reading, and the beautiful sunsets and bright starry nights. Our lake is private and majority of the members close up for winter, my home is all year round, summer is a little busier and winter is very quiet, which brings even more solitude and peace. My place is perfect for families, special get a ways, and for those who really want to get away from the city's hustle and bustle!

I am the mother of 6 and the grammy to 9 grand babies. We've owned our home on the lake for over 33 years. We loved raising our children out in the country on weekends, summer vacations and holidays, and I will cherish those memories the rest of my life. If you love to fish then you are coming to the right place, Lake Thunderbird is one of the best fishing lakes in Central Illinois, and a beautiful -quiet place to spend your weekends, holidays and vacations. My home is extremely FAMILY ORIENTATED. While raising my children, I worked from home as a floral designer and an Independent Event Coordinator, which I am currently still enjoying. I fostered new born babies for many years, and also had a wonderful opportunity to host/house several international college students from China, Korea, Japan, Sweden and Ireland for many years. My door has always been open, so renting and meeting new people seemed to be a perfect fit. If you like the woods, wildlife, fishing, reading, swimming, walking, quiet/beautiful surroundings, then you'll love Lake Thunderbird, and a lake side fire at sunset, is the perfect way to end a good day!
