Lake of Egypt - Fantastic Property
Great host, great location, great property!
This place is a true gem! Our family has 19 people...10 adults, 9 kids ranging from ages 2-16. This property accommodates everyone no matter what your age is. The beds are comfortable and it was super clean. The pictures do not do it justice. There are so many little areas on the property to hang out, relax, visit etc. We never felt crowded and on top of each other. We traveled with a pontoon and a speed boat. One of our favorite things was being able to sit on the lawn and watch the kids ski and tube right in front of us without everyone having to load up on a boat. We had toddlers with us who still take naps...brought a monitor and we could still enjoy the outdoors while they slept. The dock and swim deck are a perfect distance from the house. Not too far if we happened to forget something. The house is a perfect location on the lake...we never had any issues with too many waves. It is calm at all times. The lake itself is absolutely beautiful....so many unique homes to enjoy as you cruise around. The screened in porch was heavenly....there are fountains everywhere that are so peaceful. We even celebrated two birthdays while we were there and decorated the dock with flags and balloons. Most importantly the owners are wonderful people. We had the pleasure of meeting Todd as well as his parents, Jim and Georgia who live on the property. They are just a phone call away and some of the nicest people we’ve ever met. So helpful and so kind. We booked this property for next year before we even got on the interstate to go home. Can’t wait to go back!
Most AMAZING Vacation!!
Our extended family (about 21 of us) takes a vacation every year, always searching for the perfect place. Hands down, this place was the best yet!! There was something to do for everyone. Lots of private little sitting areas around the property for just relaxing. The lake was wonderful!! We spent lots of time boating, kayaking, swimming, paddle boarding and fishing. The fishing was GREAT!! Blue gill, catfish and bass were plentiful and exciting to catch! Everything was so clean and inviting with no details forgotten. The beds were all so comfy with plenty of room for everyone. The caretakers were available but never a bother. The hottub got lots of use. We even had a surprise birthday party in the little party room that turned out very special! The lighted gazebo, waterfalls, gorgeous flowers and amazing sunrises and sunsets made for some beautiful pictures. Thank you so much for allowing our family to share your home! It was the perfect place to make wonderful memories! We would without doubt recommend this home to anyone wanting an amazing vacation!!
Large Family Vacation
Our extended family had a great time. Owners could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The views are amazing and the property offers a wide variety of features: great dock for lounging or swimming, water features throughout, large screened-in porch, patio with firepit was used often, kayaks and paddleboards got daily use. Highly recommend this property for large groups!
Truly amazing property!
Such a lovely lake house and the set up is amazing! The views are outstanding and landscaping is beautiful!

I'm an Illinoisan by birth but I reside in Houston. This is why you may see some Texas touches throughout the house. I bought this property to keep in my family for future generations. My parents reside in the cottage. They were raised in southern Illinois. They built a house on Lake of Egypt and retired on the lake in 2001 but moved to this property in January 2017. They will most likely be on site (in cottage) or at a nearby property during your stay. They are a wealth of knowledge of the area.
Todd purchased this Estate in 2016
Why Todd chose Marion
I fell in love with this property while visiting my family in 2016. The house was built in 1965. People living on the lake have said it's the 'best view on the lake' and 'paradise-like'. My parents say it's as if they wake up on a private island resort every day. I want to share this experience with others through VRBO and share with them the hidden gem that is the Lake of Egypt and Southern Illinois. With the rental proceeds we will update the property, including building out the inside of the cottage. We also will use the proceeds to improve our guest experience and maintain the property.
What makes this Estate unique
The photos of the house and land are not adequate to truly experience the peninsula property. It offers so much for large families to do, including children of all ages. We hope your stay will make memories that last a lifetime for you, family and friends.
