About Janet McNece

I love projects and restoring properties and bringing them back to life! I found this jewel and it was lime green when I bought it! Years ago it was the laundromat for the resorts on this street. I completely renovated it and kept the open rafters and gave it a modern look on the inside and I just love it! It's just a small place but great for a quick getaway to the Lake. It's only 1/4 mile to the boat launch and beach. Perfect area for walking or just enjoying nature.

Janet McNece purchased this cabin in 2014

Perfect fit

The cabin was perfect for our family of 5 and we were literally a couple minutes from the lake.

Everything wr needed and more was there and we tried to leave it as good as we found ir

The cottage is beautifully decorated and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

It is very convenient for visiting family who has recently moved to the area. The only improvement would be adding Wifi for the cottage. Access to local channels for weather updates was unavailable because there was no Wifi.

Calming comfortable and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Janet the owner was nothing but gracious from the beginning of the stay. The property was clean and furnished with the right amount of amenities for a pleasant stay. Questions were quickly answered and when we decided to stay an extra night, the owner made it an easy add to our trip. Will absolutely consider again and highly recommend.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Amazing cabin at Lake Wappapello. Very clean, full kitchen, plenty of room for a family of 5. The cabin is walking distance to beach and marina. Will definitely recommend and come back. Perfect weekend getaway for R and R at the lake.

Adorable little lake cottage.

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I spent 3 nights here in August. Lake Wappapello is beautiful and a very short walk away. The weather was hot when we were there but the house was comfortably cool and extremely welcoming. This cottage is very beautifully decorated in lake cottage style with colorful accents and it is exceptionally clean. The master bed was very comfortable with ample pillows and a charming armoire that is well-sized for two people. There are three large ceiling fans in the house with one in the bedroom which was great. The bathroom is large and modern with great lighting. The kitchen had a huge island that was helpful for work or dining but there was a sweet little dining table as well. Family area sofas are stylish and comfy to curly up on for reading or even napping. This house is adorable but it needs a few minor improvements which I assume are missing because it seems newly remodeled. The bathroom is large but there is virtually no counter space. It could easily fit a small dresser or shelving unit for toiletries. The outlet in the bathroom was not functioning so hair drying/straightening was a challenge. There are no hangers in the house - another necessary and easily rectified situation. Small bedside tables would be helpful for phones, water, tissues. The TV is small but adequate however we had to pull up kitchen chairs to watch it and the movie selection was minimal at best. Add movies. Cookware and utensils are not extensive enough considering there is not a plethora of dining establishments in the area. It could use a toaster and definitely a garbage bin. I also thought there was a hairdryer but couldn't find one anywhere. The cottage is as lovely and peaceful as Lake Wappapello and with some minor additions I recommend it to couples or small groups/families.

It really is a fantastic cabin!

  • 4 of 5

Cabin is super cute, space is used efficiently with the use of the Murphy bed. We had 6 people and were quite cozy but comfortable, we also brought a blow up mattress which helped. The cabin is within walking distance of the beach, we wanted to be able to come and go throughout the day, so it was perfect for us. Since it is a new cabin and hasn't been used much, I thought it was put together well. Could use a few more things: bath mat, kitchen trash can, maybe a cookie sheet and a fire pit out back. Internet would be a bonus but not a make-or-break for us. We enjoyed our time and would definitely go back.
