Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Jonesboro, IL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.
