About Ed and Denise
We are Ed and Denise and our four children. We both grew up in the area and after some time away decided to move back almost 18 years ago to raise our family. Effingham has been a great place to raise our kids, and we know you will love the Lake Sara area.
Ed and Denise purchased this Cottage in 2018
Why Ed and Denise chose Effingham
Lake Sara has provided generations the best in relaxation and recreation the Midwest has to offer. Lake Sara is just the right size-small enough that it offers families a safe environment for little folks, yet big enough for boats and waterskiing to be able to open up on the water. We love Lake Sara and we know you will too!!
What makes this Cottage unique
Lake Sara offer so many great things to do for your family. The property itself is designed for maximum enjoyment. There is a yard area for your yard games, washers, bags, etc. The screened in porches are set out for you to view nature and the water in the most relaxing way possible. There is nature everywhere with large oak trees everywhere surrounding the property. Birdwatchers will be in heaven. Lake Sara is a gem, and offers so much to do. Fishing, swimming, waterskiing, boating are all here. There is swimming and fishing off the dock, and in the privacy of our cove. The two marinas on the lake do a great job catering to the needs of the boaters who come here. The public beach is a great spot for a picnic getaway and now offers a place to tie up your boat. The recreation options here are many!

We stayed in the lake cabin for the second time to meet our daughter and granddaughter from Wisconsin—great accommodations!
House was great and so was the owner. It was perfect for our family holiday. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots, and pans to make cooking a meal together an easy activity.
We enjoyed our short stay at "The Lake House" Everything we needed was provided. We love to play games so the large kitchen table was great! We hope to return there again.
Perfect Meeting Spot
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Effingham. The cabin was extremely clean, comfortable and in a beautiful setting. Communication with the owners was easy. We look forward to staying there again. This was the perfect halfway spot for meeting our daughter and her family for a long weekend.
We had a great time. The house was just what we were looking for. The pots n pans were a little worn out. Also the microwave didn't work. Or maybe I just didn't use it right?? The house was really clean. My kids loved that there was toys and a ping pong table. We caught plenty of fish. Also the jacuzzi tub was a hit for the cool nights. Overall it was great!!
Weekend with friends
Enjoyed the remote location tucked in several large trees which made the atmosphere cozy. Screened in porches were very nice. Kitchen was fully equipped. Hand soap, bathroom towels and wash rags, trash bags, toilet paper, sheets, and blankets all provided. Could use some TLC outside but overall nice place to stay.
You and your family will find many things to do at Lake Sara and in Effingham as well. Swimming, boating, and fishing are all part of the fun that awaits you here!
