Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

Why the Owner Chose South Effingham:
We knew had found the perfect spot the moment we drove in the driveway. We have enjoyed many summers at the lake house either with our immediate family or entertaining 75+ for an after the 4th of July weekend campout. This has been a great place for us to step back and enjoy reconnecting with family and enjoying the little things that matter most in life, from boat rides to savoring a s'more over the campfire.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
You will love being surrounded by privacy. We are on 50 acres so there is more than enough room to spread out and enjoy. The 400 ft of frontage(all beach) provides a safe spot for kids to venture into the water. Enjoy the views from the lakeside gazebo. At night, bring down the fixings for s'mores at the lakeside fire.
