About Jeff and Heather Goelz
After living in this area for 18 years, we decided to move down the lake to be closer to family but could not part with this beautiful lakeside retreat. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, and we wanted to give other people the experience of lake life and encourage their inner adventurer to explore all that beautiful Southern Illinois has to offer. Fishing, boating, swimming, camp fires, wineries, hiking and most importantly, relaxation await you.
Jeff and Heather Goelz purchased this House in 2017
Why Jeff and Heather Goelz chose Goreville
Well-maintained lake front property on Lake of Egypt. Watch the boats from the covered deck surrounded by the shade of mature trees. Enjoy the lake with a two boat slip covered dock. Fish and swim right off your dock. Soak in some sun on the private beach while the kids swim. In the evening, roast some marshmallows in the fire pit with an amazing view of the lake. Inside, enjoy a huge recently remodeled open/eat in kitchen with new appliances. The property boasts a whopping 100 feet of rip/rap shoreline. Experience lake life at its finest as you relax and enjoy the fantastic views from your dock, deck or sun room. Three marinas service the lake, with live entertainment weekly for you to drop anchor and enjoy. Located near the wine trails and several state parks, it truly is a vacationer's dream. Come see the view and experience the fishing, swimming, boating, and relaxing in this awesome home. There are three bedrooms with queen-sized beds. Air mattresses are welcome (but please do not exceed 8 people).

Lori, We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. The Lake of Egypt is an awesome place to make memories. We hope to see you all again soon. Heather and Jeff
My family and several relatives stayed at this property for several days. Heather met us when we arrived to welcome us and tour the property. Heather also showed us maps of the area and gave us great ideas for outdoor activities and dining. The house was exceptionally clean and well equipped for cooking, eating, relaxing outside and even kayaking. The beds were comfortable and the decor was perfect for a lake house getaway. Heather and Jeff are great people and we would stay here again.
Scott, Thank you for the kind words/review. We really enjoyed helping make your stay great and hope to see you again. Heather and Jeff

Ferne Clyff State Park is only 5 miles from the Eagle's Nest. It has easy to moderate hiking trails and a beautiful waterfall. Giant City State Park and Lodge is a must for hiking, horseback riding, and all you can eat, family style chicken.
