About Tanya Loveless

Tanya works for Illinois Department of Corrections and Robert works at the #1 Golf Course in MO. We have been married for 26 years. We have the most lovable golden retriever named Daisy that will most likely visit you at the cabin.

Tanya Loveless purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Tanya Loveless chose Jonesboro

Robert built our personal getaway cabin on our property, so we would be able to share the beautiful lake view with others. My grandpa Doc said 'That would be a perfect place for a cabin." So we named our cabin 'Doc's Lakeside Cabin' in honor and memory of him.

What makes this cabin unique

While staying at our cabin you can sit back and enjoy the beautiful view of the lake. You will see fish, ducks, birds and possibly a bald eagle. You will definitely enjoy soaking in the spacious hot tub under the stars.

This cabin was a perfect place for my husband and I to celebrate our 27th anniversary. We enjoyed a beautiful full moon and star lit sky while enjoying the hot tub. Had our morning coffee on the screened in porch. Took a wonderful hike at Bold Knob Cross. Snuggled on the couch and enjoyed the peace and quiet! Would recommend this cabin for any couple needing an escape from their busy lives.

Beautiful, Quiet and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

The most well maintained cabin I've ever stayed at, even in winter the location has an austere beauty, with the variety or trees I can imagine a fall stay would be even more lovely. The landscaping and attention to detail on the property is lovely. The owners are discerning and do have a lengthy list of rules and requirements which I'm sure are part of the reason the property is so well maintained. But they were pleasant and completely non intrusive during the stay. The interior decoration is a bit much for my tastes and you'll need to shift a few knick-knacks around a bit to make full use of the space. The only real complaint I had was with the bed and bedding. The mattress and pillows are extremely firm, and the linens are crisply starched. The combination of those things with the near absolute silence of the location made every slight shift into a noisy production and made the night time feel a bit more clinical and a bit less comfortable than I was hoping.

Little slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 3 night at docs the week after our daughters wedding. The cabin was absolutely amazing,relaxing and everything we needed after a long year of wedding planning.We truly enjoyed the the cabin,the very well maintained grounds and the hot tub was absolutely awesome.The screened in porch was a perfect place for breakfast ,lunch or dinner.Our best friends joined us for the last 2 night and was just as impressed as we were with the cabin. Docs is the perfect place to for romantic getaway,a nice relaxing time or a place to go with friend to destress. We are planning another trip in future. We can't wai to spend some more time in this little slice of paradise. Highly recommended. You will not be disappointed

Great "Thanksgiving" get away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Docs! The property was absolutely beautiful and very well maintained. It offered everything I needed to cook a nice Thanksgiving dinner. Plenty of pots and pans. There was even a few spices available. Just awesome! We really appreciated the bottle of wine waiting on us as well. The hot tub was so relaxing and a visit from Daisy the dog made us feel right at home. Thank you again for providing us such a lovely home away from home.
