Manager info

About: Although we have lived in St. Louis for years, we still think of Findlay, IL as our hometown. We met, dated, and married there. We have family and friends in town, and thought this would be a great way to have a place to stay when we visit, and let others enjoy it when we can't.

Why Findlay, IL, USA:
This home has everything a small group or family would need while enjoying recreation around Lake Shelbyville.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property is especially well suited for people bringing in their own boat, as the driveway is extra wide, and you are just a couple miles from the Findlay Marina and Lone Point or Opossum Creek public boat launches.
