Most suited for a couple. Can sleep more, extra charge for more than two. The lakehouse sets on a private 5-acre lake on 25 well-manicured acres. Fabulous sunsets! For a tiny house it has a spacious lower level with vaulted ceiling and upper bedroom loft. Wifi & TV includes Netflix, Amazon & Hulu. Hammocks, swimming, boating (canoe, kayaks & more). For fishing (no license needed) we have boats, nets & fish-dressing station (bring poles & bait). Please list accurate number of guests at booking.

The space
This is your private lake to explore, boat, swim and fish (no license needed). We have been stocking the lake with several types of fish since 2006. Quiet, serene setting with beautiful sunsets. The lake house is spacious for a tiny house, with high vaulted ceilings and an upper loft open to below. The kitchen is fully supplied with tableware, cookware, cutlery and utensils. Kitchen has a full size refrigerator, two-burner cook top, small oven (holds a 12 inch pizza), microwave, electric skillet, double kitchen sink, toaster, coffee pot with coffee and filters. Also for cooking we have an outdoor charcoal grill and an outdoor electric grill and all grill utensils. Bring your charcoal and lighter fluid. We also have a rack for the fire pit for outdoor wood cooking. Firewood provided. We have hot dog sticks for wieners/marshmallows. Owner home is 250 yds away, visible from lakehouse.

Open wifi, no password needed, with high speed fiber optic internet. For TV viewing we have ROKU streaming: We are subscribed to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon.

The lower level futon makes into a double bed. The upper loft is open to below and has shared space for a double and two twin beds. All beds have good, new mattresses.

Walk-in shower off the main living space. There is also a private outdoor shower just off the deck. Fresh fluffy towels and basic toiletries are also provided.

All bedding and bath towels are provided, also a blow dryer and many more toiletries and necessities in case you forget something. Bring your beach towels. The kitchen has cooking staples, salt, pepper, sugar, flour, oil, coffee, filters, foil, plastic wrap, paper towels etc.

Guest access
You will have total access to the entire lake site. Boating; canoe, kayaks. Swimming; we have several life jackets and a 9'x6' foam lily pad. The entire perimeter of the lake is well manicured with a mowed path for leisurely strolls or for a fitness run. Five laps around the lake is 2 miles. Be warned, in summertime, my grandkids may be swimming at the other end of the lake. Owner home is about 250 yards away, visible from lakehouse. We are available if you have questions or need anything.

Other things to note
Palmyra is the closest town, on Hwy 61, that will have numerous restaurants and a County Market grocery store. It is 12 miles from the lake house. The local Philadelphia Community Center (2 miles) serves home cooked hot breakfast Mon-Sat from 6:00a to 9:00a. Larger cities, Quincy Illinois and Hannibal Missouri are each about 35 minutes away.

My husband and I are retired. We enjoy working on our lake property. Our permanent dwelling is on the same 25-acres as our lake and rental lake house. While our guests will have privacy, we will be near by if we can do anything to make their stay more perfect. My life motto "Without the dark we would never see the stars" (literal and figurative) I challenge my guests to turn off all the lights, lay in the hammocks and marvel at God's amazing universe. The stars are a fabulous sight on a clear night.
