Description

We are located at the end of a bay on a stocked, private lake, if you have an IL fishing license you are welcome to fish from our yard or off our dock. Because we are at the end, we do not care to swim in our bay but you are welcome to use our kayaks, canoe, or paddle boat, just ask. There is also a swing set for the young ones. The stars at night are amazing as it is pitch black but we are on a county road so you will hear cars going by, not often but enough to not call it totally quiet. We have 1 1/2 acres so plenty of room to roam but all pets must be on a leash. Please make sure to watch your children around the water.

House Rules

We request that you pick up after your pets and please do not toss cigarette butts on the ground. Please respect the late hours, no loud music after 10 pm.

Access Road Conditions

You will have to turn your rig around to leave but plenty of room for a 25 ft, even a little larger. The turn into the driveway is a little tight and a tad bit steep at the very beginning before you level off. We have no problem at all with our 25 ft, our friends have a 40ft and they have also managed.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Can park tow vehicle would be parked next to your rig either in the driveway or on the grass

Fantastic hosts!

I had a marvelous overnight stay and the company and conversation were icing on the cake. They have a great site right on Lake Carroll. They are very easy to get to and if you are tired of the same old, same old interstate driving, they are an easy “Blue Highway” drive to get to. Especially if you are arriving from or departing to the west. I departed westbound and the scenic roads took me past some very nice scenery and vistas. I highly recommend staying with these folks and I definitely plan on returning.
