About Bud Shook

My wife and I live in Du Quoin, IL about 30 miles NW of Lake of Egypt. Debbie is a retired teacher, and I am a business owner.

Bud Shook purchased this house in 2002

Why Bud Shook chose Lake of Egypt

One of the best views on the Lake, our deck faces west overlooking the largest part of the Lake for great sunset viewing. Located in a small no wake cove good for swimming and laying on a raft.

First girls weekend

  • 1 of 5

Wasn't very pleased with the up keep of this house. The roof is leaking in the sitting area off the back of the house, the shower/bath didn't work, so no shower where able to be taken. The air conditioning in the kitchen/living area has mold in it.

The owners really need to invest some of their time into cleaning up the yard a bit.

I wouldn't recommend this property to anyone.

The wifi stunk, the shower was broken and was told just to make sure to not push the shower plug down, so then you have to be cautious to not to do what you are so use to doing at home, then was told if we didn't like pictures of his family to just lay them down, that is not my responsibility, the roof is leaking, there are spider webs all over the ceiling, and there the fridge was almost completey full of food when we got here, I feel as if the refrigerator should be empty as I am coming to stay and bring my own food, I don't wanna have to guess what was mine, and what could have possibly been here for the last 2 years, there was only window air, so half the Windows can't be open to get a nice cool breeze in the evening, the window unit upstairs had some kind of mold growing inside of the air unit, and the second day here half the people that was staying with us, started to get headaches, and feel sick. I WOULDNT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE TO STAY HERE, IT IS A WASTE OF YOUR MONEY. The only good thing was the view was phenomenal, but we didn't spend all the money, and the time to drive here just for a view, we wanted a place to stay to feel safe, not get sick, and not worry about what we was gonna catch while being here! I do not completely understand how the owner even feels comfortable renting this out to anybody, it needs to be updated, and needs all the problems fixed!

Owner's Response: Response to complaints: The WiFi (High Speed DSL) is the best we can get for the area. The shower diverter broke a few days before this renters arrival, we could not get a plumber there over the weekend. The entire tub shower fixtures have since been replaced by certified plumber. We have had a lot of rain recently, and one of the skylights started leaking. We have had a contractor out to repair and thought it was done, however there is still one small spot that leaks. The contractor is scheduled to come back out next week. We will speak to the cleaning service about any food left in refrigerator and spider webs, to correct that issue. We will have the AC unit checked and cleaned.

This weekend was a bust.

  • 1 of 5

When we showed up there was food in the fridge, freezer, and cabinets. It felt like we were intruding on someone's house. There are family photos everywhere and I don't feel it is right that the owner said we should just "put them down". Then the next problem is the roof was leaking so we had to rearrange everything around that. We smelled a funny smell and come to find out looking in the window air upstairs there is some kind of mold causing everyone to get terrible headaches. The shower didnt work so everyone had to take a bath. The owner knew it was broken and just told us not to touch it. I spent most of my time outside. The plus side is the view is beautiful. The house was a waste of money.

Great Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 9 days there and our biggest regret was we didn't stay longer. The home was nicely equipped and lent a very homey feeling. The evening view from the decks is amazing.

Young children will enjoy fishing from the dock area -- they can catch small ones till they get tired of it. Sit on the deck in the early morning hours and watch the regulars fish -- then you'll know where the big ones are. The owners were very accommodating and friendly -- they gave us some great advice for places to see and excellent restaurants.

We fully intend to stay there again next year.
