***NEW DOCK 2013- COVERED BOAT SLIP AND HUGE SUNDECK!***

Come explore what Southern Illinois has to offer for your next family vacation!

Our lakeside retreat is located on the beautiful Lake of Egypt, popular for fishing, boating, and water sports. This tranquil waterfront home is situated on a private road and features vaulted ceilings, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a stone wood burning fireplace, and a large deck overlooking the lake. There is also a separate full basement unit with 2 double beds, living room, full kitchen, and full bath with patio and beautiful lake views as well! Room enough for 2 families comfortably! The house has lake views in the front and back, and is situated off the ski area in a no wake zone with deep water off the dock. The dock is a new covered one boat slip with huge 12'x28' sundeck to enjoy all the lake has to offer as well as the picturesque sunsets! There is also a private sand beach with toys provided and a built in fire pit for evening campfire activities.


The open floor plan of the main living area is ideal for entertaining. The large kitchen has loads of cabinets that wrap around the entire kitchen and includes a built in kitchenette area with seating. The master bedroom with queen size bed is complete with master bath with a roman tub and double sink and walk-in closet. The upper level consists of 3 bedrooms (all Queen beds) and 2 full baths. In addition to the spacious main floor, we also offer a fully finished basement with separate entrance accessed from the outside. The lower level living area is set up as a studio apartment and includes a bathroom with shower, kitchen, dinette area, living room area with couches and TV, and a bedroom area with two double beds. The walk out patio with sliding glass doors and picture window offer beautiful views of the lake. All bed linens are provided and a washer/dryer are on premises. All beds and pillows have allergy covers.

There is also a small book library and a selection, games, toys, water rafts, and life jackets for your use during your stay. There is a toddler bed in the master bedroom and a portable crib/ playpen and a high chair are available in the closet. Pets may be allowed at an additional fee and deposit, however, the yard isn't fenced, and dogs must be on leashes. Dog leads are also available.

If traveling with a boat, you may launch it at any one of the marinas, which are only 5 minutes away. Boats and wave runners can also be rented at Mack's Marina.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

Why the Owner Chose Creal Springs, IL, USA:
We are from the Chicagoland area, and I have been traveling to Lake of Egypt since I was a little girl. This home was in my family, and I took over 8 years ago. It is a special part of my memories as a child, and now that I have children of my own, it is special for them, too. I've been to lakes in Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin, and nothing compares to Lake of Egypt. We love it and we love Southern IL. We would like to open our home to other families and friends so that they can also create fond memories of their own at Lake of Egypt!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Cyndi's favorite spot- Drinking my morning coffee on the deck overlooking the peaceful, still lake and watching the Great Blue Heron perched on my dock. Tom's favorite spot- In his fishing boat searching for those Largemouth Bass in Sugar Creek. The Kids' Favorite spot- On the private beach playing in the sand, catching minnows with nets, and swimming.
