Guestbook comments from the owner
(In response to a survey question: What did you enjoy most about the vacation rental property on your vacation?)

Answer:

The location on the lake, the size and comfort of the house to meet our needs, and the quick response to questions from the owner. We have been to the lake for years and rented 3 other houses - this by far, was the best experience.

We are from the Chicagoland area, and I have been traveling to Lake of Egypt since I was a little girl. This home was in my family, and I took over 8 years ago. It is a special part of my memories as a child, and now that I have children of my own, it is special for them, too. I've been to lakes in Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin, and nothing compares to Lake of Egypt. We love it and we love Southern IL. We would like to open our home to other families and friends so that they can also create fond memories of their own at Lake of Egypt!

Cyndi's favorite spot- Drinking my morning coffee on the deck overlooking the peaceful, still lake and watching the Great Blue Heron perched on my dock.

Tom's favorite spot- In his fishing boat searching for those Largemouth Bass in Sugar Creek.

The Kids' Favorite spot- On the private beach playing in the sand, catching minnows with nets, and swimming.

Summer Fun!

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful time! The house is very comfortable and had everything we needed. We fully enjoyed the lake and caught tons of fish right off the pier! Plus there is a lot to do in the area. We highly recommend zip lining!!! All in all a perfect place for a fun summer vacation!

A Great Time

  • 5 of 5
This was a great house! My husband and I brought our daughter and granddaughter, they loved having their own space downstairs! The house was clean and had everything we needed and much more! I have recommended this house to friends, and family. The new pier was great we spent a lot of time relaxing on it. The spot on the lake is perfect (no wake) and it was so nice to have the private launch right down the street. We never had to call the owner because we didn't have any problems. This will definitely be a vacation spot for us from now on.

Spent the week fishing with 5 other guys. My only complaint was the rainy weather. This was our 3rd time renting from Cindy. Very easy to deal with.Will probably be back in the fall.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5
We booked the Lakeside Retreat for four days. We needed a place to stay for our daughter's graduation from SIU. Since my husband loves to fish, we thought it would be a good idea. We loved the short distance the house was located from the school. We greatly enjoyed the home. It had everything we needed for a wonderful stay, pots, pans, dishes, grill, etc. We had a wonderful time.

Review of rental house

  • 5 of 5
Our week at the house was great. Dock was nice. Fishing was excellent. Everything worked and house was clean. Only disappointment was the inability to go to and from the two levels of the house inside. Had to go outside to get to the two levels. Also didn't like the steep driveway, was difficult to back out of the driveway.
