About Alice Blea

Carlyle Lake Lodge was built in 1979 by Henry Hollenkamp Sr. as a weekend retreat for his five adult children and their families. Since that time it has provided many wonderful memories of picnics, boating, and BBQs. The Lodge is currently owned by Henry Hollenkamp Jr. and his sister Alice Blea. Alice and Henry are very excited to be able to share a little bit of heaven with their valued guests.

Alice Blea purchased this cabin in 1979

Why Alice Blea chose Illinois

Carlyle Lake Lodge is conveniently located within walking distance of Carlyle Lake, the most visited state park in the state of Illinois, and only 30 minutes from historic Lebanon, IL with its antique shops and unique stores.

What makes this cabin unique

Absolute peace and quiet are the mainstay at Carlyle Lake Lodge along with convenience and more than enough space to accomodate even the largest family. Sit on the deck and watch the birds or take your boat out on the lake for an exciting day of water skiing. No matter what adventure you choose you will have a great time!

Good Space, Location, and Decor

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for a group of friends or a family to spend time together. My group of 5 artists enjoyed the large deck and the large table where we spent much time working on our art. The location was easy to find, but it also provided some privacy because it was at the end of a road, surrounded with trees, and somewhat secluded. It was only a short drive to different parts of Lake Carlyle, where we saw many different kinds of wildlife. Inside, the decor was attractive and quaint. It was well supplied with kitchen items, towels, restaurant menus, etc. The owner was easy to contact and accommodating.

Loved Our Stay at Carlyle

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a bass fishing tournament, and we really enjoyed having a place to come home to and relax and recharge. The boys really enjoyed the fire pit as well. Clean as advertised. We will be back if we make the state tournament again next year!

Great get away for the family.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as stated. Comfortable, cozy, and especially charming. The grill works great and the house can be used for great gatherings of many people. Plenty of space and a rockin bonfire pit with tree stumps for chairs. Perfect!!

Golf Weekend

  • 3 of 5

Really clean and impressed with the size of the house. The tv/cable did not work also there was an Internet router but failed to list instructions or passwords. This was a challenge for us because we really needed to see the radar.. Cell service is really tough, obviously that is not the fault of the owners. The grill was in really bad shape, we decided not to use it. Overall I recommend this property but would of liked some of the amenities to be in better condition.
