Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Kansas

Come and relax while you discover nature at its finest at our cabins at Lake Wabaunsee. Lake Wabaunsee is a beautiful, clear, spring-fed lake in Northeast Kansas.

This cabin is a completely furnished luxury cabin that sleeps six on the upper level. The upper level features three bedrooms, two full bathrooms (including an in-suite bathroom in the master bedroom), a spacious living room, an eat-in kitchen, a laundry room with a full-size washer and dryer, a front entry porch, and a spacious back deck with a scenic lake view.

An added bonus for this cabin is the boat house. This space has a rustic feel to it and features a loft with three queen-sized air mattresses. This makes an for ideal location in which teenagers can hang out.

Have more than six in your group? No problem-- the lower level features an additional bedroom and bathroom, as well as a living, dining, and kitchen area. It also features covered and open-air decks which overlook the lake. The lower level can accommodate an additional four people comfortably.

This cabin is located at an ideal spot on the lake to watch the slow parade of boats that cruise around the lake. This cabin and boathouse are in a 'no wake' cove across from the free swimming beach. The docks provide easy access to boats for the passengers.

My wife, Mary, and I enjoy outdoor activities, meeting people, and sharing our place. We love the Flint Hills and Lake Wabaunsee.

We have the cabin to help us create good memories. We hope you will come visit and create some good memories of your own.

Jim Woodward purchased this house in 2000

Lake Wabaunsee is 30 minutes from our home. I first went to the lake on a fishing trip with my dad when I was 10. I had a great time and caught my fill of sunfish. It continues to be a good place to create great memories. There is something enchanting about the lake. It renews us both mentally and physically when we spend time here; it is the perfect break from the stress of everyday life.

A trip to Lake Wabaunsee is like going back in time, a more simple and peaceful time.

AWESOME FAMILY GETAWAY!

  • 5 out of 5
This cabin was in great shape and was a perfect fit for our group of 10. The owner was very helpful and attentive. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone looking to get away, but not have to drive too far.

BEAUTIFUL PART OF THE COUNTRY

  • 4 out of 5
Lake Wabaunsee sits in one of the most beautiful and underrated parts of this country. Route 4 is gorgeous- and the stone walls along Route 99 heading north toward Manhattan are amazing! Beautiful country and Lake Wabaunsee sits in the middle of it all!

The cabin itself is a bit dated. The carpets could stand to be deep cleaned or replaced. The boat house is really unique, but when we arrived the boat house was opened and it smelled like there was a dead animal inside. It never fully aired out, so we weren't able to use it at all. Plus we couldn't figure out how to get power to the boathouse, so we couldn't get the lights on and couldn't utilize the refrigerator.

All that being said, we enjoyed our trip immensely, and the facilities at the cabin worked for our group of (8) adults. We would recommend this region to anyone!

Owner's Response: Some one left fish bait in boat house refrigerator. unfortunately they also left it unplugged! Even though it was professionally cleaned, the smell lingered it is now clean and fresh again. The electricity works.

CHRISTMAS AT THE LAKE!

  • 5 out of 5
Amazing lake house and owner! We spent 4 nights over Christmas at the lake house with our 3 year old. Jim, the owner, made sure we had a Christmas tree for Santa to leave presents under and decorated the outside with lights, a wreath and the inside with decorations! The lake was snow covered and made it even more magical! Our 3 year old declared it best Christmas ever! We will definitely be back!

AWESOME LAKE RETREAT -- NO COMPLAINTS!

  • 5 out of 5
We were lucky enough to book the cabin over Labor Day weekend and had such a great time. We were out swimming off the boat house dock all afternoon every day and cooked or grilled out for most of our meals. There's a great restaurant/bar across the lake and we were really impressed by their food actually. It's close enough to Manhattan that we were able to run over to a football game one night and it's a beautiful, short 45ish minute drive - amazing improvement on a hotel in Manhattan or Junction City. The cabin was hotel-quality clean when we arrived, and the owner was immediately responsive to any questions we had.

RAINY RETREAT

  • 5 out of 5
Nice property, as advertised. Rained much of the time we stayed--which is unusual for Kansas in August. Brought our small sailboat to play in but didn't have much of a chance to use it. Spent much of the week in the boat house playing cards and yatzee!
