Charming Corner lot home minutes to Lake Shelbyville
About Jean Carter
My husband Steve and I met when I moved to Findlay, IL in high school, and we still have family in the area close to Shelbyville. We have found that many people prefer small town based vacations, and the fun of discovering new places and meeting new people.
Jean Carter purchased this House in 2015
Why Jean Carter chose Shelbyville
This house was built in 1870, has been nicely updated and well cared for, and my husband has built several very unique lamps and other furniture pieces that make this home much more enjoyable for a group than separate rooms at a motel. A firepit is in the back yard, wood is available at nearby gas station/convenience stores. We have 4 camping style bag chairs available for use. A picnic table is stored in the garage and a charcoal grill is just steps outside from the kitchen.
What makes this House unique
For boaters - close to Shelbyville 9th Street boat ramp. For meat lovers - Wade's Meat Market is only 5 blocks away and has an awesome selection of meats for you grill-masters! Within walking distance are several downtown Shelbyville shops, and the Roxy Theater for entertainment on a rainy day.

Great place to stay
The house was exactly as pictured/described in the listing. There was plenty of room for our family of 6 to vacation. My 3 and 6 year old loved their bedroom set up upstairs! The amenities of the home were great-- no problems at all. If I had to come up with one drawback of the property it would be that the sidewalks really need to be redone. They are cracked, buckling, and very uneven. Watch your step and be careful with rolling suitcase wheels. Overall, out of 4 adults and 2 kids, we all decided that we would definitely reserve this space again for our next Shelbyville vacation. It was a great home for a vacation. We had an excellent time!
Glad you enjoyed the property! Yes, we agree the sidewalk along the street needs redone, it's a city sidewalk so we will keep trying to make it happen. Thanks for the review and we would love to have you stay again next time!
This house has a great location to downtown Shelbyville and a very short drive (around 1 mile) to the public beach at Shelbyville. The house was well maintained and everything was very clean. I LOVED the antique aspects of the house too. The cool little closets found throughout the house provided hours of hide and seek entertainment for my kids and their cousins. It has such great character!
The kitchen was a great size and had all of the utensils and supplies that we needed. It was so nice to have a washer and dryer at the residence too so we could clean our beach clothing on a daily basis.
I would highly recommend this place.
Glad you enjoyed your visit, come see us again!
Perfect location for lake shelbyville
Perfect location to stay if you’re on the lake. House is well kept, host was a pleasure to book with.
Great little house in Shelbyville
The house was very clean and well organized. It was just as presented in the description. We found it to be well equipped and very usable for our party of six people. We especially like the fact that there were abundant towels and washcloths. The extra parking spaces at the side of the house worked well as we had three vehicles there and we were still able to park out boat trailer next to the street on the other side of the house. Both bathrooms are on the main level, but we did not find it to be a problem. We would recommend the property very highly.
Quick visit with family
This beautiful house was spacious and cozy all at the same time. comfortable furniture and beds. We loved the character of this old home with the transoms, door knobs, moulding, etc were fabulous. Everything was clean and beautiful. The kitchen was fully stocked and we even had a dinner party for 11 family members without lacking for anything.
Communication with owner was perfect. We come to the area every summer to visit family. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
Close to the lake and the pool. We walked to the theater (to see Toy Story 4) and downtown. Cute little town we enjoyed exploring.
Glad you had a great visit and enjoyed the character of the home. Hope to see you next year! Jean
