The cabin sits in the trees along beautiful Lake Sara. The newly remodeled cabin offers a quiet place to relax and unwind. You can bring your kayaks, paddle boards or trailer your family boat along for some fun tubing and skiing on the lake. The dock allows for the boat to be left in the water till the end of your stay. The Marina, Pinky’s (waterfront restaurant & bar), Cardinal Golf Course, Lake Sara Campground and Lake Sara Beach are all a short walk from the cabin!

The space
All reservation should reflect the amount of people staying correctly.


The cabin does have four kayaks available for all guest to use. The cabin does sit back in the cove and is in a more shallow water. I recommend guest who want to swim to head to the beach which is a short walk through the campground.

The cabin offers a charcoal grill for outside use. Charcoal and other amenities for grilling are recommended to bring.

There is a fire pit in the back, Wood is not provided all the time. Please contact me for places that sell wood of you are in need of any.

Guest access
Guest have access to the entire cabin and boat dock waterfront. Please be mindful of the neighbors that are close by

Other things to note
• Kayaks and Paddle boards are there for guest use

• There is a tv with a dvd/vhs player. You can bring movies if you would like but there is not any cable/ dish or internet available

Hi! I am a local girl born and raised in the area. The cabin has been in the family for 30+ years. It is a special place I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. I am happy to help with any questions for my guest. Please do not hesitate to ask prior to your stay and or during. I do ask that all bookings are clear on the headcount. That is what is referred to when getting the place ready for our guest.
