-The lake and the Flint Hills offer many great motocycle rides. During the warm months of the year, many travel by motorcycle.
-One of our favorite things to do is explore some of the rarely traveled Flint Hills gravel (and dirt) roads on an off-road motorcycle. The lake is a great place to take a stroll. A popular mode local transportation is the golf cart.

About the owner: (Picture to the left is a Spring motorcycle ride on Skyline Road)
My wife, Mary, and I enjoy outdoor activities, meeting people, and sharing our place. We love the Flint Hills and Lake Wabaunsee.
I built my first cabin near Boulder Co. which influenced the design of this cabin (I both designed and built this cabin as well) giving it a notable Colorado-style.
We have the cabin to help us create good memories. We hope you will come visit and create some good memories of your own.
Why the Owner Chose Lake Wabaunsee: The Lake is 30 minutes from our home. I first went to the lake on a fishing trip with my dad when I was 10. I had a great time and caught my fill of sunfish. It continues to be a good place to create great memories.
There is something enchanting about the lake. It renews us both mentally and physically when we spend time here; it is the perfect break from the stress of everyday life.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Relaxation and subtle beauty. Lake Wabaunsee is a great place to be mindful and enjoy your family and friends.
Going to Lake Wabaunsee feels like going back in time; back to the simpler times of the past.
