The A-frame cabin is a spacious, 1800 sq.ft., 2 story lake-view getaway situated on 37 privately owned acres. It has recently been updated with new siding, paint, windows and patio door. The first floor has a large open kitchen, dining area, living room with a queen size pullout couch. Also on the first floor, there is a full bathroom and private bedroom with a queen bed. A sliding glass door opens up onto the lake-view patio from the living area. Out on the patio there is a table, 14 outdoor chairs, and a charcoal grill. There is also a fire pit with plenty of wood to burn provided by the owner.
Upstairs there is a second 3/4 bathroom, private bedroom with queen bed and a large bunk room that has 4 full size beds. The bunk room opens up to a small lake-view landing with stairs going down to the outdoor lower patio.
A portion of the 37 acres is mowed and the rest is wooded. There are mowed trails for hiking and exploring the woods. Two ponds are also on the property. Fishing is allowed but you will have to go to the lake to swim. Access to the lake is 5 minutes away at Pettit Bay Campground. There is a field maze mowed into the property. The maze is great fun and may even be challenging for some. Just in case there is a storm warning during your stay, there is a storm shelter available on the property.
Another vacation rental we own, is down the hill from the A-frame. The log cabin vacation rental sleeps six and it can be viewed at listing #693135.
If you are planning to float the scenic Illinois River, the property is 25 minutes from the Illinois River. There are many float trip places available along Highway 10 for renting a raft or canoe.
If you love the outdoors, want to be minutes away from the lake, or just want to get a feel of rural living, come stay at the A-frame at Pettit Mountain Ranch.
