My husband and I have lived the majority of our lives in beautiful southern Illinois and enjoy everything that it has to offer.

Carla Frazine purchased this cabin in 2011

Hohman Lake is a quiet, peaceful lake. The lake is restricted to property owners and their guests. Boats can't have motors with over 6 hp to avoid disrupting the relaxing atmosphere that is present.

Our favorite features of the cabin are the large, outdoor spa and the multi-level deck. Star gazing while sitting in the spa is a must. We believe our cabin has the best view of the entire lake!

JULY 2013 VISIT

  • 5 out of 5
We had a very enjoyable experience, whether rain or shine. The cabin was immaculate and nicely decorated. Comfortable beds, chairs and sofa. The deck furniture was very comfortable as well and the ceiling fans kept it cool. Neighbors were quiet and there was no boat traffic or noise. The only sounds were the frogs and crickets and the wind in the trees. We played games, watched movies, read, and napped in the peace and quiet. The pictures definitely do justice to the cabin. It was just as shown. Plenty of closet/drawer space in bedrooms as well as in kitchen/dining area. We very much want to return again!

PERFECT PLACE TO MEET OUR DAUGHTER

  • 5 out of 5
This cabin was a great place to meet our daughter and granddaughters from NC. The cabin was very clean and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. It is a very quiet and relaxing place. Carla, the owner, called to make sure we were comfortable and if we needed anything. The screened porch was especially nice.

OUR FAMILY STAY

  • 3 out of 5
There are pros and cons to this cabin. Firstly i would like to say that the cabin was immaculate and attractively decorated. Unfortunately there was quite a few essentials that were desperately needed. When we arrived there was only one roll of toilet paper with no extra which required a 10 mile journey to the nearest store.

The TV does not have cable or any channel view-able and no radio for that matter. We planned on doing a lot of cooking during our stay which has limited cooking resources. Besides a couple of electric skillets and a pot there was no frying pans for the stove, no toaster or blender with a drop of dish soap hardly adequate to hand wash dishes. The coffee filters were numbered for precisely the number of days we were staying and limited to one pot per day.

The water is murky and not ideal for swimming including leaches we found along the shoreline. If you do decide to brave it, there is no pier or easy access to get in. We stayed at a time of particularly hot temps well into the 90's and cool off in the house was the only option with little entertainment inside.

The view was spectacular and the owner was very kind and did allow us to arrive earlier than the required check-in time. I would recommend that anyone who does decide to stay here bring plenty of movies to watch, a radio, cooking essentials and enjoy the panoramic views from the screened in porch and multi-tier deck.

Much praise for the immaculate condition of the cabin.

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear that you found the cabin to be clean and were able to enjoy the beautiful lake views. It is unfortunate that everything about your stay did not meet your expectations. We appreciate your feedback and will try to address your concerns below.

It is true that we do not have cable or satellite television. This was a deliberate decision as our personal use of the property is to “get away from it all.” We hoped to offer that same experience to our guests. We do have an antenna for over-the-air broadcast, but due to the location we are only able to get one channel intermittently. We do supply a selection of DVD and Blu-Ray movies.

In regard to the lack of toilet paper and coffee filters, it is unfortunate if that was the case. Our procedure is to keep at least three extra rolls of toilet paper under the bathroom sink. We also keep additional coffee filters and dish soap under the kitchen sink. If this was not the case during your visit then we sincerely apologize. We do not count out the number of coffee filters or attempt to limit use to once per day. Rather we replace the supply when it appears too low. We also leave our phone number in the cabin with a message encouraging guests to contact us if they need anything else. We would have been happy to supply you with any items that were not adequately stocked.

Based on your feedback we have added a toaster. In regard to other cooking resources, there is a set of four pots and pans, as well as an electric skillet, griddle, and deep fryer. We also supply tools for grilling as well as for cleaning of fish.

In regard to the lake, it is primarily used for fishing. While some do choose to swim in the lake, it does not have a sandy bottom and therefore may not be comfortable for some. There was previously a dock leading out onto the lake, but we removed this when we purchased the property due to its age and poor condition. Since purchasing the cabin we have added the large back deck, hot tub, and landscaping. The next addition will be a new dock for fishing or just sitting by the lake.

Again, we are sorry if your visit did not meet all of your expectations. We appreciate the feedback and will use this to improve the experience for all of our guests in the future. We hope that you will return.

PEACEFUL RETREAT

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here on part of our honeymoon & it was great. It is a trip to get to, but worth the drive. Located in a very quiet lake near peduka, KY. It's beautifully decorated with lawn furniture to enjoy the outside. We loved the hot tub overlooking the lake.
You are just minutes from nice eateries in metropolis or more upscale restaurants in Peduka that offer some more southern cuisine. It is about an hour from the southern Il wine trail, so we came after touring that first. We also enjoyed a hike at Shawnee, but this was a 40 min drive.
It was wonderful waking up to a lake view, sunshine, & quietness. and our phones had limited service, so we just enjoyed each other & the view.
Also, no motorized watercraft allowed so bring an inflatable boat or pedal boat.

We would like to invite you to stay in our relaxing lakeside retreat. My husband and I bought this property in 2011. We love to stay at the lake with our family and friends and wanted to share the experience with others. Hohman Lake was built in 1963 and has many full time and occasional residents. Located only 15 minutes from Paducah, KY and Metropolis, IL it allows guests to enjoy the shopping, restaurants and entertainment available in the city as well as the beauty of Southern Illinois. This place is the perfect family retreat or romantic getaway.

Some of the activities in the surrounding areas include Harrah's Riverboat Casino, the Superman statue and Superman museum and Fort Massac State Park all in Metropolis, IL. We are also within easy driving distance to the Southern Illinois wine trails. Historic downtown Paducah, KY is known for it's riverfront with large paintings reflecting on the history of Paducah, excellent restaurants, art galleries and many shops. Kentucky Oaks Mall and it's surrounding stores and restaurants are also close by.
