About the Property
Private Flint Hills Lake Home
Some vacation spots take your breath away-- this one makes you take a deep breath, relax, and bask in nature's beauty at its best.
The two-story cabin's ground floor has a large open concept kitchen, dining room and living room. The ground floor half-bath also offers full laundry facilities. Off the dining room, an enclosed sun porch provides gorgeous views through hardwood trees down to the water.
Upstairs features two very large bedrooms (with queen size beds), and each bedroom opens onto a covered deck that runs the length of the cabin. There is also a sitting room and a full bathroom between the two bedrooms and a loft area with a daybed in the second bedroom. The cabin sleeps six comfortably.
The outside stairway leads to a private dock right on the spring-fed lake where you and your guests can enjoy a full range of activities including swimming, fishing, boating, and picnic lunches while soaking up sunshine on the sparkling blue water.

-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.
-There is an old Santa Fe Trail restaurant in Council Grove that serves family style dinners that is worth the trip. The drive is great.
-Paxico in near by and it is known for a blues festival and many antique shop.

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 Alma, KS, USA:
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.
