  • The description says 'tiny' but we had a wonderful experience as a group of five staying at this location. The views of the lake were awesome! The space is truly cozy and inviting, and the comfy beds and quiet surroundings lead to relaxing sleep. Definitely aces!

  • Maura was very attentive to the needs of her guests. She made sure to remind me of where the extra blankets were stored once it was clear the weather would be chilly at night. She also was kind enough to let us check out a bit late, which made our morning lovely. We had time to shower after our morning hike and drive home clean :) House is so cute, property is lovely. we had a nice time in the fall--I can imagine this is a great spot in the summer for a family.

    Kristin2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend an I took a trip to the area to hike, canoe, and enjoy the local wine. The location of the cabin was perfect and central to everything we wanted to do! The cabin itself was spotless, cozy, and absolutely perfect for what we needed. Maura did an amazing job at making us feel like we were at home. Everything we needed was there. We would definitely come back and stay here again.

    Kristina2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful little cabin on the lake!

    Cheyenne2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • This place was great! It was a little cold to swim but we enjoyed going down to the dock. It was just enough space for all of us.

    Samantha2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • The Tiny Cabin was amazing. It was small and intimate. My parents are older and I truly enjoyed this time with them. It was nice to be so close. Maura thought of everything and stayed in close contact with us, but was not intrusive. She was very honest about her space. The grade down to the water is steep, but this is hill country and to be expected. My elderly parents climbed the hill several times a day to go to the water. It’s steep, but you do not need to be an athlete.

    Mica2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely, clean and inviting space. The deck and outdoor space is incredible. We had such a great time unwinding at the end of the day grilling and hanging out on the porch. The dock was a great place to float and relax. The whole stay was wonderful.

    Kaitlyn2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Maura’s place was so cute and very clean. My kids absolutely loved the loft area. They had their own fans, lamps, and extra blankets if needed. Absolutely everything was sparkling clean! The house came with movies, games, kitchen necessities plus extras like coffee, snacks, etc., the bathroom was fully stocked with plenty of towels, soaps, toiletries, and even a first aid kit. Every bed was comfortable including the blankets and pillows. The place was absolutely cozy! We loved being so close together in the tiny home. The porch was my favorite place. My son loved the hammock and my daughter and I played checkers on the table. In the evening, I was able to sit on the porch while my kids and dog played just below. The lights that are hung up around the porch gives it the perfect ambiance at night. The grill and fire pit was right there by the porch making everything easy to get to and use. There was wood, charcoal, and lighter fluid already there for us to use. We spent a whole day down on the dock. My husband and son fished while my daughter and I had fun on the Lilly pad. Pack light going down there because coming up is quite the workout. It didn’t stop us from going though. The next day we drove less than five miles to Ferne Clyffe and hiked a few different trails. We had a great time. Maura was very good about responding quickly for any questions. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks so much Maura!!!

Original wood floors in both bedrooms & 2nd story screened in porch that covers the entirety of the back of the home overlooking the lake. The screened in porch is the gem, according to our guests! Screened in porch is furnished with outdoor furniture, large fan to enjoy your coffee in the morning or evening relaxation gazing at the gorgeous view. Full kitchen with many amenities. Relax on the screened in porch, hammock, porch swing or a chaise lounge on the dock--all why enjoying the waterfront view. 2 Docks: 1 deep enough to tie your boat to, has ladder to jump in & swim in the private cove, or 2nd dock to relax in the chaise lounges.

Guests must message us if they wish to bring pets that meet guidelines and agree to pet policy before booking. Unfortunately, we have guests with allergies & simply do not have enough time to clean to the degree we want our guests to have with shedding fur babies. We have tried, it simply doesn’t work for this lake house & the cleaning schedule. Beautiful breeds we love but do not qualify due to shedding include but are not limited to: German Shepherd, Labs, Huskies, Malamutes. We do love them-we just can't accommodate them at the lake house-sorry.

We are just down the road from the Country Club golf course & one of the closest areas to get to by land from the interstate. There are several close marinas & you can tie your boat to our dock!
  • Tricia & Randy’s place is definitely a place you want to stay. We have stayed here a couple of times and look forward to coming back in the future 😊

    Andrea2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great hospitality and location.

    Rebecca2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This place was just the thing my family needed for a weekend getaway. The pictures don’t do the view and setting justice! My three children had a blast playing in the backyard and walking along the lake shore.

    Joshua2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay. You will be comfortable and the view from the living room can’t be beat.

    Zoran2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot and hosts.

    James2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • The screened in porch is the gem! We spent a cozy Thanksgiving here and were able to prepare our meal with all of the tools in the kitchen. Beautiful decor, tons of personal touches, board games, and great location!

    Kristin2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • Easy check in. Felt like home walking in with the great decor and coziness. The screened in porch was absolutely beautiful and so peaceful to enjoy every morning. The extra breakfast items provided were a great touch! It was conveniently located close to everything we wanted to try from hiking at Giant City to dining in at Walts! With it being right on the lake it was absolutely perfect and we cannot wait to return for a future summer trip!

    Ashley2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Exceeded expectations. The screen in porch is fantastic and has a beautiful view. The lake house is clean and full of thoughtful details. I’d highly recommend and look forward to return trips.

    Kathleen2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • The micro cabin was an amazing stay in So. IL. It was so spacious and decorated cozy. We didn’t have any issues with checking or during our stay. We brought our two huskies along and had plenty of room. P.S. try to finding the dog paw print on the ceiling.

    Courtney2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic stay at Allison's place. I was looking for a place near Marion, but out of the way enough to ensure it would be peaceful and quiet. This was a perfect place. First off, the pictures do not do justice to the cabin. It is very well laid out with ample space to stretch out. Hope to be down this way again and this will be my first choice.

    Sean2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Allison’s cabin was a wonderful little getaway. It was well decorated, cozy, and had everything you would need for a short escape. The area is beautiful and was very relaxing. I highly recommend this cabin.

    Lori2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin was perfect for a cozy winter weekend getaway. We did some light cooking while we were there and were happy to find the kitchen stocked with all the necessary cooking basics. Hot shower, plush towels and a cozy bed...what more could you wish for? Thank you Allison for being a great host!

    Michelle2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing cabin and Allison is a great host.

    Kyle2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay! Actually, two stays in one week - on the way there and back, during our annual drive to Nebraska. Our daughter loved the loft - she claimed it from the moment we got there and spent all the time she could perched up above everyone. We cooked dinner and breakfast and the kitchen was perfectly set up for that. The check in and check out were easy and quick. The location was perfect - just a couple of minutes off the interstate, but in a quiet and peaceful setting. Hope to be back next year.

    Nelli2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • This was a perfect, cozy spot. We will definitely stay again!

    This lakeside retreat is sure to delight. From the expansive decks offering beautiful Lake of Egypt views to the cozy interior this house will help you feel at home.
    This mansard style house was built in 1969. The owner and builder of this beautiful home constructed the Poplar Street Bridge in St. Louis, Mo. Leftover material from the bridge was used to build the home. It has been fully remodeled with the integrity and charm of the house maintained. This lakeside retreat sits on the beautiful Lake of Egypt offering gorgeous scenery. Bring your fishing gear for the warm water lake and swim suits as these are musts when spending time at the lake. Kayaks, and lake tours are available for rent. The house has a full kitchen and washer and dryer. With three bedrooms, there is plenty of space for you and your extended family to enjoy our treasured home. There are three bedrooms on the upper floor. The master bedroom offers a king size bed whereas the other two rooms offer queen size beds. There is a full futon downstairs as well. The house has a game room for the kids and a party room for adults. On the deck outside you will find a wood burning fire pit as well as a charcoal grill. There are lots of inside and outside spaces to have a lovely family get together or a private romantic getaway. We cannot wait for you to enjoy our home as much we do. Welcome to Lake Living!
    The neighborhood is peaceful and beautiful and has good walking and bike riding areas.
  • Wonderful place to stay on the lake.

    Angela2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great cozy place with everything you should need to enjoy yourselves.

    Rebecca2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house and location. Easy communication and friendly host

    Tracie2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Bell's place was great for our family trip to Southern Illinois. She was very communicative since booking up until the day we left. Her assistant greeted us and showed me all the light switches and heaters throughout the house. There is no shortage of recommendations for local places to eat or things to do. We had no issues the entire time we were there. The location on the lake was beautiful and the house was perfect size. I love that the bar area was separated from the main part of the house so if people went to bed, and we stayed up playing games, they weren't bothered. We would recommend staying here for anyone looking for a place in the area!

    Sara2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • The lakeside location in a quiet neighborhood was great for a relaxing weekend. We went in the fall and used it as a base to explore nearby Shawnee National Forest. The house was clean and had plenty of space for our family of 5 and our dog. Bell greeted us in-person and was very attentive throughout our stay. Overall a great experience and I would gladly stay there again.

    Ben2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! Comfy beds. Lots of kitchen amenities- made cooking easy. Wonderful that it's dog friendly. My dog is a big dog but he's well- behaved-at least as far as being house trained (too unfocused to sit and wants to pull on leash and wants people food but won't chew or pee or do anything destructive), so it was great for it to be no big deal for him to come along. Great hiking within 1 hour drive. Wilderness preserves were great. Thanks Bell!

    Josephine2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • I imagine the location would be even more beautiful on a spring or summer day. It was pretty nice on a fall/winter day. Wish the downstairs bathroom was not a split. Other than that everything was great. Lots of nice places to sit and rest or relax!

    Trevin2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • Expect the best! this is a wonderfully decorated lake house. Expect to be able to swim, fish, boat, or just relax around the fire pit. Bell has thought of everything, so you don't need to pack much. A great stay!

    Near Ferne Clyffe state park, Giant City State Park, multiple southern IL wineries, and many other lakes and parks. Fishing, boating, mountain biking, hiking, relaxing!
  • Kris and Matt's cabin was perfect for our stay. It had the snug and cozy feel I was hoping for. The Wifi is a bit spotty, but they have a Smart TV and a nice selection of DVDs. They have a lot of kitchen utensils and plenty of blankets to stay warm. The cabin is a bit far from major hiking locations, but usually no more than an hour and a half. The owners were very helpful and communicative every step of the way. Easy check in and check out. Beautiful new dock and water amenities available just across the street. Stocked with plenty of firewood. Very nice place to take a vacation.

    Briana2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place!

    Timothy2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • 2 adults and 2 large dogs. Weekend stay. Traditional (owner built) log cabin that is elevated with a spacious deck/porch. Full bath and kitchen with everything you need (minus a dishwasher. It’s cabin living. Hand wash em) 2 separate sleeping lofts that get nice and toasty. Gas fireplace was a nice touch for our frigid Valentine’s Day weekend. Matt and Kris quickly answered all of our questions and checked in periodically via messenger to make sure everything was going well. Along with the red roof retreat, they have 3 other structures. Their personal/main cabin. A one room tiny house. And a currently under construction tree house with 2 decks, full kitchen, full bath, and trap door style sleeping quarters. We CANNOT wait to visit one of their other two properties this spring/summer!

    Amanda2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I stayed at the Red Roof cabin for our first trip to the Shawnee National Forest and had a great stay! The cabin was cozy and clean, and we had all we needed to cook a little and relax. The location is about 45 mins away from garden of the gods and under a half an hour from giant city. Kris was so helpful in making sure we were comfortable and settled in. I’d recommend staying here to anyone visiting the area :)

    Leslie2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • On Christmas Eve Eve :) my husband and I had to leave to head to Illinois for a family illness emergency. Kris was so helpful as we drove through the night she made sure we were all set before arrival. With the stress of the trip and holidays it made our sudden trip much more enjoyable having an amazing place to stay!

    Brandi2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Kris’s place was a perfect spot for a family get away. Quiet, relaxing and so comfortable.

    Chris2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Nice little cabin that has everything you need for a nice relaxing weekend.

    Mus2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Red Roof Retreat is clean, well appointed, and in a perfect location for enjoying the Shawnee National Forest! Kris was a fabulous host - helpful guides to the local region, comfortable accommodations with the thoughtful touches that make a rental 'cozy', and a great space exactly as described. We enjoyed the lake access and stargazing, easily took day trips to Makanda's art community (Vulture Fest!!), and explored the Shawnee. This trip was just my husband and I, but our 2 kids would have fit the space great also. We would book this cabin for a future family trip or another weekend away together.

    Lake Front House on Lake of Egypt in Southern Illinois. Our house has a great view of the lake, beautiful sunsets can be seen from our decks. The lake is well known for fishing and recreation, is on the northern edge of Shawnee National Forest, where you can enjoy the many hiking and biking trails. There are several wineries and micro breweries in the area. Great place to kick back and relax.
  • Great place to stay, very comfortable with a great location on the lake!

    David2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a spacious house right on the lake. The house is warm and inviting and a great value. Would definitely stay here again

    Susan2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing sunset view

    Omar2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place right on the lake! Water is so warm to swim in and our family had a wonderful time.

    Danielle2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful and quiet "get-a-way" spot for a couple or a family. Warm and cozy Lake House cabin feel. I grew up often going to lake houses with my family and this felt like home.

    Lance2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! We had a great time here

    Michaela2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • This house is a great place to make family memories on the lake! We rented it for the weekend to celebrate my mom’s birthday; the big selling point for her was the one review we read that commented on the gorgeous sunsets, and they weren’t kidding. Best sunset spot on the lake! The one (very) minor oddity was the power plant that was sitting directly across the lake from the house, it marred the view a bit, but we got over it fast and enjoyed a weekend of floating in the lovely lake and making family memories we won’t soon forget! Bud was awesome to talk to and an incredible host! We all agreed that we would definitely stay at Bud’s Place again!!!

    Erica2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • The house and location are great! We had 6 people stay very comfortably. The inside is very cozy and easy to relax in, and at night sitting on the deck is wonderful as well. The dock on the lake is also very easy to chill out on and swim near. 10/10

    Zach2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean, cozy and relaxing place. The beds were so comfortable!! Hot tub was ready to go for us along with towels and robes! It felt just like home with all the cozy amenities! Amy was a great host! We didn't realise it was 25-30 minutes out of town (our fault) so next time we come we will pack more food and be more prepared! We enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here again in the future!

    Britne2020-02-11T00:00:00Z

  • Amazing house and location wish the weather was better but a wonderful view and would definitely come back to stay again..

  • What a beautiful space! Quiet and serene are two words that come to mind. I needed a space to rest after running an ultra in the town of Vienna. The race was about 25min from the Airbnb and it was a great place to come back to after a long race.

  • This was our first time staying at Lake Egypt. I want to let everyone know that Vicky made it an amazing time for my family. We are a family of 6 and this home fit us perfectly!!! Located on a private road , it was quiet and secluded. It was extremely clean and Vicky went out of her way to make sure we had all the special amenities we needed. From the welcome basket with coffee, popcorn and water to the special accommodations in the bathroom such as shampoo,conditioner, body soap, and toothpaste, Vicky made sure we had everything we needed for a week long stay. The kitchen is very spacious and it was furnished with everything we needed. There was a wonderful selection of games for the kids to play at the kitchen table that overlooked the beautiful lake!!! The living room decor was perfect and the view was amazing. The outside of the home was beautiful, just steps away from the water .... there were extra kayaks and an awesome Lily pad for the kids to swim on! They loved it. We caught fish right off the docks!! There is a cozy fire pit down by the water for s’mores and enjoying the water in the evening as well. The neighbors were also very friendly and overall I would give this place a 10/10!!! We will definitely be returning ! Thank you again Vicky for such an awesome vacation!

  • My wife and I and another couple had a wonderful stay at Vickeys place. We were impressed by how clean it was and all the extras she had available to us. We would definitely like to stay again sometime.

    Mike2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful views of lake, nice patio, easy check in and thoughtful touches. We really enjoyed our time here.

    David2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Let's start with the house it was sparkling clean in every area. Stocked with anything you would need for cooking etc. beds were super comfortable. Then you head out to the upper patio that has a great view of the lake and great shade. Down the hill to your private dock area where they have kayaks, floats, fishing gear yard games in a shed for you to use you literally don't need to bring much. Great fishing right off the dock. Took the kayaks out a few times even got to see eagles in the wild while out fishing in the kayaks. House was great and enough room for our family of 3 plus Grandma and Grandpa stayed too. You will not be disappointed in this place. We had a great family weekend here! Made some Great Lake memories.

    Randall2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Vicky was great to work with Helped us with extending our stay). Communication was practically instant. Place was clean and description was as advertised (and some more). Great place to just kick back relax, fish, swim and boat watch. Thanks again.

Cant wait to go back!

    Shannon2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Jill’s lakeside retreat is a great find. Three bedrooms upstairs, and one down makes plenty of room for sleeping. My bed was super comfortable and the pillows were perfect. Jill has went out of her way to make sure all the necessary items are already available for an easy getaway. Kitchen was well stocked and cooking was so easy. All the condiments and spices made the best touch. No need to run out and get dinner or spend extra on those necessary items. We enjoyed coffee each morning while relaxing in the living area by the fire. My mom loved the view and the peaceful atmosphere. We will absolutely be back!

  • Megan's lakehouse is fantastic. I visited for a weekend with my family in the winter and we had a great time. Her place is very clean and tidy. Megan is a great communicator, with quick responses and clear instructions for check-in. The house is right on the lake, and includes a nice patio area with an outdoor couch. Would highly recommend a stay regardless of time of year.

We loved having our morning coffee on the deck and watching the cardinals and hummingbirds. The apartment is spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated, with all the little amenities and personal touches from the host. A perfect destination for bicyclists, conveniently located near the Tunnel Hill Trail.

    You’ll love my place because of its roominess, privacy, beautiful lake views, peaceful, natural surroundings, and location on the edge of the Shawnee National Forest. Leave city stress behind and just relax and recharge or be as active as you like. Swim or fish off the two-slip boat dock (available for your sole use). Take your boat out fishing or water skiing, hike one or more of the Forest’s trails, or visit a winery. My place is good for couples, families and groups.
  • The place was beautiful. Deck is great for fishing, many locals stop with their boats to fish. Be aware, many steps to the dock and in the house for the elderly. We loved it though.

    Jacquie2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Janet's space was perfect for our ladies weekend getaway! The house is cozy with Gorgeous views. We plan to come back already!

    Mary2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Janet’s place was perfect for our girls weekend. We loved it! Couldn’t have asked for anything better and check in was super easy!

    Caitlyn2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Janet was a treat to work with. She responded immediately when I had any questions and let us check in early due to early arrival. The house is great and comfortably slept 8 of us with room to spare. The dock is awesome for fishing, relaxing or jumping in the lake for a swim! Great place for great value!

    Blake2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing home on the lake! Our family didn’t want to leave. Just the location enough made this a spot everybody wanted to come to. The water was deep enough for adults and kids to jump and swim around in. Fishing off the dock was easy with the table and chairs set up and it must have been a good spot since all the boat kept stopping there to fish. If the location on the lake wasn’t enough, the large home would definitely have you in love. A large and gorgeous 3 story home with enough beds to comfortable sleep 11, all the amenities and comforts of home and more! When the night came to an end the back deck was a perfect spot for some card games and wind down. We will definitely recommend and will be staying here again next time we’re in Southern Illinois.

    Sasha2019-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house with great views of the lake. Comfortable for a large group. Easy lake access for swimming and boating.

    Penny2019-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • You can’t beat the location and amount of space at this house! Janet is so helpful and we will definitely be returning!

    Jen2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • If your looking for a house that has space this is it! The kitchen is equipped with things you didn’t even realize you needed. Top of the line appliances. Plenty of dishes, pans galore. Wonderful deck overlooking the lake. The deck has a great swing also. Plenty of seating for meals inside or out. Great dock space for your boat(s) we enjoyed fishing (yes we caught fish!) from the dock. Both bathrooms had numerous big fluffy bath towels. Comes with a good dozen or more beach towels. Had great cellphone reception and had no need or desire for any WiFi. Plenty of parking space. The stairs weren’t a big deal we just stuck everything in a beach bag and small cooler when we went down to the lake. Definitely will be back. Great house on the lake.

It has a fantastic setting on the lake and has seating both inside and outside to allow you to enjoy the views even if it’s cold out. Mark was always quick to respond. This is a great place to stay if visiting the Marion or Carbondale areas.

The home is equipped with everything we needed for our stay, which was really nice. Mark was extremely prompt and informative throughout our stay as well! If in the area, this little gem is where I’ll want to be, without a doubt. Thank you, Mark!

  • We were provided a bedroom, bathroom, and common space with couches. Most importantly for us, these folks are pet-lovers and we were able to stay with our new puppy. Peggy was super cool and nice, and the kids who stopped in and out and the pets on premises all added to the charm.

    Steven2019-05-12T00:00:00Z

  • Guy's lake house was the perfect getaway! Guy was very responsive and easy to communicate with both leading up to and during our stay. The house was cozy, clean, and comfortable with a beautiful view of the lake. We really enjoyed our stay, watching the sun over the water while sipping coffee and even sitting by the water until we got too cold. It was also close enough to enjoy some sites in the area, including Garden of the Gods. We were sad to leave, and would definitely recommend Guy's house! The only thing, it can be a little tricky to find so pay attention to Guy's directions :)

For anyone looking to spend time near Egypt Lake or the Marion area this is a great place for friends and family. One caution; if you have weak legs or breathing conditions the climb from the lake to the Rock House is probably not for you.

  • I would highly recommend Bryanna's place for you to stay! It is a beautiful peace of the lake and the accommodations are amazing! You won't regret staying here!!!!

  • Very quiet, comfortable accommodation, we really enjoyed our short stay here. Just wish we could have stayed a few more days to explore the area more!

  • Nestled back in the woods, Toni’s place is quiet and nature is right out your front door. A beautiful setting. The entire house was spotless and quaintly decorated. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need and then some. We hope to book with Toni again in the Spring. We enjoyed the place that much. The host is very informative and gives detailed instructions for check in and check out. Quick response to any questions or concerns you might have. We recommend Toni’s place!!

  • Just as described. Very peaceful, clean and no problems at all.

  • Little touches like cold bottles of water in the fridge and snacks on the table made me say, "WOW!" as soon as I entered. Everything seemed brand new from carpeting to paint to appliances. I came looking for an isolation pilgrimage-- no people and zero noise. That's exactly what I got. Though when I did have to leave for anything stores and restaurants were about 10 easy minutes away. Plus it gets so dark at night that I never woke once in the middle of the night. This was far beyond my expectations. Toni was polite and gets back to ya quickly.

    Located on Lake of Egypt this home defines perfection. Your own private beach, and a massive dock with diving board and slide frame the outside perfection.

The massive island in the kitchen can accommodate the whole family. Views are second to none. Visit our website for more detail and pics.
  • I was looking for a relaxing weekend on the lake and this place definitely delivered! It is a gorgeous house with plenty of space for a couples retreat or in my case just a group of friends. The house is located on a quiet street and as soon as you walk in there is a great view of the lake through a wall of windows. A large kitchen and living room also allow you to view the lake through the big windows. The master bedroom is huge with a large enclosed shower and a walk in closet. The additional bedrooms are also very good size and there is an extra room downstairs with a ping pong table and tv for extra entertainment. We enjoyed grilling out on the deck and afterwards spent hours in the lake. We had plans on having sitting around the fire pit also but just couldn't get away from the water. It had a good size dock with a diving board and slide and also provided some kayaks for a little extra entertainment. I just can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this home.

  • Such an adorable, quaint place to get away!!! Very clean and near the wine trail and Marion. We enjoyed a relaxing weekend and loved being able to bring the dog. Can’t wait to go back when the weather is warm and grill on the back deck and enjoy the scenery.

  • Beautiful home for couples looking for that perfect weekend retreat! Enjoyed a pontoon on Lake of Egypt where the house resides, beautiful outdoor grilling station and bonfire pit with plenty of interior space for all. A+ destination. Wonderful host!

    Matt2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful place to rest and relax. We will HIGHLY recommend Mary Ann's place.

    Gayle & Ed2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay. The house was so comfortable, and we'll kept. The lake was beautiful, off the main drag so semi-private as there were neighbors but they were all super friendly. I am hoping to come back as it was a great weekend get away, but felt I could have stayed a full week!

    Lynn2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, quiet area, super clean, plenty of room for my family.

    Courtney2019-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful vacation house on a lake. Highly recommend for a group of friends or a family. Mary Ann was incredibly Communicative and responsive.

    Jessica2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. The house took our entire group (14 including 6 children) with ease. By far our favorite amenity is the dock and lake. We lucked out with the weather being perfect, and we spent our entire 3 days on the dock while the kids enjoyed the diving board and slide. Being next to the boat landing made putting in and taking out my jet ski's super convenient. The large deck, patio area and outdoor kitchen were really handy as well. All in all , this place exceeded our expectations in every category. Mary Ann was very quick to respond and easy to work with.

    Travis2018-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome LARGE house with a great outdoor area/dock!

    Erin2018-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is an amazing lake house with a beautiful view right on the water! The house is very spacious and easily accommodated our group of 7. I wouldn’t hesitate at all to book this unit.
