Location

Vandalia, Illinois, United States

Cottage is centrally located on Lake Vandalia and very accessible for those not familiar with area. Although you will have your own private beach there is a free public beach right across the cove and a convenient mart next to camp grounds within kayaking distance. We have only one neighbor on the lake who are approximately 100 yards away with a shared driveway so there is an adequate amount of privacy. Other conveniently close off location amenities include a super Walmart within 2 miles, an 18 hole golf course within 10 miles on the same road cottage is addressed. Lake Vandalia is 660 acres which is more than ample for any water sports and on most days during the week and most weekends it’s as if it’s your own private lake.
