The Cox Family
About The Cox Family
We have 3 young, beautiful, & active children that keep us busy at all times of the year. Todd grew up coming down to Lake Sara from a small town right outside of Champaign, IL every weekend of every summer. Him & his family have such great memories & we plan to keep the tradition going with our children. We really enjoying traveling as much as we can whenever we have time, the kids are really involved in sports! We have this rental so not only our family can enjoy it, but you & yours can as well. Because....LIFE IS BETTER AT THE LAKE :)
The Cox Family purchased this House in 2016
Why The Cox Family chose Effingham
We really thought the Lake Sara campground was a unique place to have a vacation rental. There are a lot of friendly people in the campground and it is a great little community. There are really nice amenities and the property itself is so adorable. We really love the idea of owning a "tiny house" like you see on tv and it was a great opportunity for us since we absolutely LOVE Lake Sara. The home is very spacious and we love that it is right on the water.
What makes this House unique
We really like the idea that you can put up a tent or two outside the home since it is already in the campground. The homes around Lake Sara are not allowed to do that. The swimming areas are nice and calm not in the middle of big bodies of rough water so its hard to swim. Nice area to view the fireworks on the 4th.

Lake Sara Cabin
Very nice campground and cabin. Canoe is nice bonus. Exactly as advertised. Quick get away to a family friendly place.
Tiny Homes - Big Vacation Fun
I was a little nervous booking a place that had not had a review posted for almost a year but I always wanted to stay in a tiny home so I did and I am very happy I did. The owner was very quick to respond to our questions. The pictures and description of the property was spot on. Our two kids (20 and 13 years old) loved the loft. It was like having their own space. My son was looking forwards to fishing and was very excited when he caught one. We were looking forward to exploring the lake on the canoe the owner provided but the weather did not cooperate so we spent a cozy day watching DVD and playing games which were also provided by the owners. As a matter of fact the owners had stocked their tiny home with everything we needed. Looking forward to booking again hopefully with no rain this time so we can explore the lake activities!
Great location. Wonderful for families.
This was a great property in a wonderful campground on Lake Sara. The space was great for our family of 5. The kids loved the loft and we loved the tiny house experience. We love the show on HGTV and they have this model on it often. So fun and comfortable. We would recommend asking for a detailed map since our GPS couldn't navigate the campground. We recommend this spot to anyone looking for a fun getaway.
Very nice and clean with a gorgeous view. The cabin had everything needed for a fun weekend at the lake.
Beautiful view. Nice place allowing pets
The Park Model was small, but 5 adults and 3 dogs had enough room. It was really quiet this time of year in the campground. We enjoyed sitting out with the dogs and watching the boats and wild life. We had gathered for Thanksgiving Dinner for our grown children and a friend, and while the place was too small to cook a full Thanksgiving Dinner it was very close to Cracker Barrel and it offered a family Thanksgving Dinner to take out already heated. It was delicious! Other meals were fine in the Park Model. The housekeeper for the place was very nice. Due to a misunderstanding the place hadn't been cleaned when we arrived and dirty sheets and towels were laying on beds and the floor. But the housekeeper arrived very fast when we called the owner and was super fast to get us new sheets and towels etc... She also made a special trip to the store for us as there was no toilet paper in the Park Model when we arrived. She was super nice, even leaving her phone number in case we found something else we needed. Everything else we needed was there. The only thing I would let others know in advance is the shower building is closed off season - it isn't surprising, but we had planned on using it for showers since we had 5 adults for showers, but we should have asked. We made it work by just spreading out shower time. We would stay there again for sure. Thanks for allowing our pets with us!
Good cabin, great location, excelent view!
The cabin was great! This is a real way out of the situation where everyone loves nature and camping and campfire, but not everyone likes to sleep in a tent :)
We had a great time on the lake and plan to come back next summer.
