3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Lake Front Cabin Located On Beautiful Lake Of Egypt
About Scott Shawmeker
Mary Ann and I retired a few years ago and are now more about enjoying our life and especially our 5 grandbabies.
Scott Shawmeker purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Scott Shawmeker chose Marion
This property has been in my family since 1901. Before there was a lake it was my great Grandfathers farm. The surrounding property and across the lake were a part of the 85 acre property. In 1963-ish, as the lake was being created the farm was parceled out were each of the Adams children received a lot (hence Adams Acres) and the property beneath the lake and across was sold. The cabin is located on my Uncle Denny's lot that briefly was owned outside of the family. We were able to purchase it and build the cabin in exactly the same spot and footprint of his original cabin.
What makes this Cabin unique
The cabin at Adams Acres offers close proximity to the local highways (Interstates 24 & 57 and Illinois routes 37 & 148) are a few minutes away. The home is newer (built in 2016) with the express purpose of being a short stay cabin for people visiting Southern Illinois...including my family. We did our best to insure the place includes the creature comforts of a home with the solitude and privacy of a lakeside cabin. There is a dock, private beach (shared with our home next door), kayaks and peddle boat for recreation. There is also a fire pit and tiki torches down by the water for night time fun.

Great and quite location
Spot on the lake us a newer property. Nice quite dead end lane, and centrally located in Shawnee. Communication with the owner was excellent, and the cabin was stocked well if you forgot something (personal products). Nicest place we have seen in years.
Beautiful, clean lake house
This lake house was great! It was clean, well-maintained, and included a lot of amenities. I downgraded one area to a 4 only because the picture of the fire pit area online was actually of the neighboring home. Real fire pit was a metal ring near the beach, which was fine too. Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay, and would rent this home again in a heartbeat!
Wonderful time! We hope to visit again...
Loved our stay. Location was beautiful.
Great family vacation
This property is a little gem on LoE and our family had a wonderful time. The owner was very responsive and helpful with making our stay very comfortable. The property had everything we could ask for and the home is well stocked for any visitors. It was especially kid-friendly which we loved and we spent the entire time relaxing and enjoyed the extra amenities. We're so glad we chose this spot for your summer getaway.
The place was exactly as listed. It was spotless! Scott responded so quickly to any question. Such a great spot for our family, we loved it and are looking to return soon!
Amazing house with perfect swimming access
The house was spotless when we got there, plenty of room for groceries and places to sleep everybody. The private beach in the backyard was perfect for lazy days just floating around in the lake. I definitely recommend this property to anyone who’s planning on renting a boat or just wants to swim around in the lake!
