About GAIL STARKWEATHER
In 2004, we were looking for a vacation home to rent for our large family, kids, grandkids and friends, scattered around the country. We came upon this listing right on Lake Sara in the southern Illinois town of Effingham, Illinois. It was a 4 hour drive for us and most of our family. So instead of renting, we purchased the property immediately and have been so grateful for being able to comfortably accommodate so many people and make so many memories.

Why GAIL STARKWEATHER chose Effingham
Lake Sara is a quiet 800 acre lake with many amenities, easy travel from St Louis (1 1/2 hrs), Chicago (3 hrs), Indianapolis (4 hrs), Nashville (5 hrs). Established in the 70's, Lake Sara is very well maintained by the Water Authority. We have city water and electricity, and a newly built wi fi tower nearby. Because it is the southern portion of the state, the warm weather season is extended, from late May through September, we are able to enjoy the water much earlier than northern areas of the midwest.
