This 2 BR/1BA Home May Seem Small, But It Lives Large Being On The Water.
About Debby Willard
Thank you for looking at our home! We both work full time in Champaign and love to do almost anything outdoors-biking, boating, fishing, walking, or just relaxing around a fire pit! To round out our family, son Jeff, daughter Sara and granddaughter Bailey. We are hoping to build some great family memories at Willard Lake House!
Debby Willard purchased this House in 2016
Why Debby Willard chose Effingham
Lake Sara is just such a wonderful lake. Every time you are out on the water, you notice something new and different. There are plenty of places to fish, watch the sunset or skiing from your boat. Most importantly, the people are just so friendly here!! This property is perfect for small groups who want to experience what lake living is all about. It is just such a family atmosphere at Lake Sara.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with this property because it offered the total package to being on the Lake. The house is warm and welcoming with ample room inside, as well as having the 3 season room for evenings. The boat dock is a feature that sets this house apart. You can spend the whole day on the dock and enjoy everything from food to fun to sun!! When the sun has set, take advantage of the fire pit!

Looking to buy, so wanted to spend a short time on the lake to experience if we wanted to live in the area. Loved it.
Thanks Linda! We are looking forward to having you as part of the Lake Sara neighborhood!
Nice and relaxing!
Great time! Love the dock
We thought it was a very nice place to enjoy some relaxation . The lake was great for swimming when the temperatures were in the 80's. Caught 2 batches of crappie. Nothing like fresh fish. Thanks for sharing your Lake house.
We will try to schedule this place again. Very relaxing.
We had an awesome time with our family. The house was clean and decorated nice. The view of the lake was great. We had a great time down by the boathouse/dock area. Having the kitchen and bathroom there was great. We grilled and ate down at the dock. We enjoyed fishing and swimming and used the kayaks and canoes. We will be back:)
Pre-4th of July Getaway
The property and the lake were very nice and quiet. We really enjoyed early morning kayaking before the ski boats came out. The whole lake was like glass early in the morning. We biked mid-day since the surrounding area was so shady, and used the paddleboat late in the day when the lake was shaded. It is nice that the property provides the bikes, kayaks and paddleboat for its guests. We will definitely try to find more dates for a return visit.
Effingham is the home to many attractions. Besides the beautiful lake, there are restaurants, a winery, 3 golf courses, shopping and 2 marinas.
