Kaskia Woods Estate is owned an operated by the George Bolinger Family. The house was built in the early 1900's and has been a part of our family since 1936. It has provided us with many warm and wonderful memories.

Toni Schlosser purchased this house in 1936

This home has been the source of many fond memories for our family. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and many relaxing summer nights along with cold but comfortable winter nights have been spent in this house. We want you to have a chance to make similar memories.

We are located within a mile of Lake Shelbyville's 9th Street Beach/Boat Launch, and only four city blocks from Forest Park Aquatic Center and many miles of walking/hiking trails. We're also walking distance to a local grocery and 6 blocks from Shelbyville's downtown area, where you can visit and enjoy a variety of restaurants or take in a movie at our very own Roxy Theater.

It's all about family

It's all about family

Our family gathered at Kaskia Woods for a quick get-away. We loved it. We saw three deer immediately upon arriving. Soon we met Rocky Raccoon and "Phil" the groundhog. We were able to watch the sun rise on Lake Shelbyville, visited the wonderful pool at Forest Park and went boating on the lake. The local restaurants were very friendly and the food was excellent. All-in-all, it was a memorable four days for our family. The house is clean and has all of the usual amenities. The setting is perfect for nature lovers. We will return soon!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We just wrapped up our second annual trip to Kaskia Woods and it did not disappoint! The house has everything you could possibly think of . . . it truly is a home away from home. The kitchen was very well stocked (with lovely Pamper Chef products no less). There was coffee, a nice supply of spices, you really don't need to bring much if you are planning to cook. There is plenty of room for everyone to relax, find there own space to chat, read a book, watch a movie, etc. The house is very comfortable and has a little something for your little ones, your teens, your aunts, uncles and parents! We are looking forward to next year. As mentioned in other posts, the train is the only downside. But you'll even find a bag of ear plugs in the bathroom for the light sleepers in your crew. No one in our group had any issue with it, after a fun day at the lake the train could have been in the house and we wouldn't have noticed, everyone was happy and worn out!

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5
This was our first family gathering (11 adults and 3 grandchildren under the age of 3) to a location away from home and we could not have been more pleased with our stay at Kaskia Woods. The owners were very friendly and took very good care of us to make sure we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The home was very child friendly with plenty of toys and games. While there we enjoyed the nearby pool and the beach. At the home we enjoyed sitting outdoors on the porch and patio, making s'mores around the fire pit, and watching the birds, squirrels and deer from the sunroom. The home was spacious and comfortable which made for a very relaxing weekend with our children and grandchildren.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5
We met at the house for a mini family reunion. The house was beautiful inside and out. Plenty of room to be together, but room to be alone if you wanted also. It was incredibly stocked and had everything we could think of or need. The owners were very responsive and we were given a tour and some history of the home when we arrived which made it feel more like home. The only downside is the train, but that would be heard anywhere in Shelbyville. We would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that your family enjoyed their stay at Kaskia Woods Estate! We do apologize for any problems the trains may have caused you! We have come to love them over the years but totally understand how frustrating the noise can be we hope that won't detour you from coming back for another visit sometime, and you are right you can hear the train from everywhere in Shelbyville! Thanks again for choosing Kaskia Woods Estate for your Vacation spot this year!

Welcoming Comfort Abounds

  • 5 of 5
My family came to the area for a high school graduation, we didn't want to leave to attend the parties we felt so cozy and at home. The house is magnificent, yet the family created a feeling of warmth throughout with personal, functional and thoughtful touches. The four seasons porch gives a panoramic view to the acreage, a bird lover's paradise. All of this in a home suitable for small children and even furry ones too. We are already planning a second trip !
