Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Alma

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.

About Jim Woodward

(Picture to the left is a Spring motorcycle ride on Skyline Road)

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

Why Jim Woodward chose Kansas

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.

What makes this house unique

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

Excellent in every way!

  • 5 of 5

For the past several years, we have enjoyed family vacations here. We, as well as our children and grandchildren, look forward to our week of fun and relaxation at this property. Jim, the owner, is very accomodating, and makes sure everything is perfect. We are never disappointed! The kitchen is well-equipped, and the home is very clean and comfortable. Spent the week swimming, fishing (LOTS of fish!), boating and enjoying the peaceful setting. Thanks for another great vacation! Will definitely be back next summer!

A Great Place for a Lake Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house for our family lakation! We had 8 adults and 6 children (age 7 and under). The house had lots of room and it was great to have 3 bathrooms. The house and dock were everything they were promised to be. The dock having shade so that people could get out of the sun for a break was a big plus and the sleeping quarters on the dock had air conditioning and a mini fridge that made a great place for the little ones to take a break from the heat. We brought food down to the dock and had lunch there every day. The owner was excellent to work with and very accommodating. We had a great time and plan to book this house again next year!

We love this lake Wabunsee lake house

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed at one of Jim's other rentals next door a few years back. We also loved that property when it was just our family of 3. This time we had extra family along, 4 adults and 2 young children. We had plenty of room and it was nice to have separate living areas as well as 2 kitchens. We really loved the boat house and spent a lot of time down there. Swimming, floating and taking our canoe out. We will be back again!! The sunsets and sunrises are just amazing from the boat house!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words about the cabin/house on the lake. To say boat house really doesn't say how cool the "like a living room on the water". We are glad you enjoyed it like we do!
