About the property

Lakeside Cottage With 1 Bedroom And A Loft, Sleeps 4

I would like to invite you to stay in our cozy lakeside getaway. My husband and I bought this recently constructed property in 2011. We love to visit and wanted to share the experience with others. The lake was built in 1963 and has many full-time and occasional residents. Located only 15 minutes from Paducah, Ky it allows guests to enjoy the shopping, restaurants, and entertainment available in the city as well as the quiet countryside of Southern Illinois. This place is the perfect family retreat or romantic escape.

The cabin offers 950 square feet of comfortable living space with a maximum occupancy of 4. The base rate for 2 people is $145, for more than 2 people the rate is $165 per night. The beautifully decorated space has a fully stocked kitchen and open dining and living areas. The fireplace sets a cozy ambiance on cold winter nights. The main floor also includes one bedroom with a queen size bed and full bath. The loft upstairs is a special hideaway with two twin beds. The cabin also features a large screened back porch with private spa.

Amenities include an outdoor spa, outdoor fire pit, fireplace, gas grill, outdoor furnishings, dishwasher, washer and dryer, stove, refrigerator, toaster, coffee maker, central heat and air, kitchen utensils, cookware, dishes, towels, linens, hairdryer, iron, and complimentary coffee supplies. Please note that satellite TV is not available. Bring your favorite movies for the DVD player. There is no boating on the lake for our guests, but feel free to bring a canoe, kayak, or raft to float.

No pets allowed.

The property location is 9269 Hohman Lake Rd., Brookport, IL 62910.

Everything was Fabulous!

Rented this wonderful Lakeside House for my husbands birthday. We had an amazing time, just enjoying the peaceful, quiet environment. Sat on the dock and fished, Barbequed, made a fire a night. The house was very welcoming and had everything we needed. I would highly recommend this little getaway! We Loved it!!

Amazing, felt like I was back in northern Michigan, very relaxing and beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

Had some hiccups at first with the hot tub but the owners took care of it quickly. Yes, neighbors are close but it's so relaxing you forget they are there because the lakeview is what you are there for. The cabin was very nice and I will highly recommend this property to friends and family.

Nice waterfront cabin w/ a few hiccups

  • 4 of 5

We generally enjoyed our stay at the Jennings Family Lakeside Cabin. Getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life was really refreshing. The home itself was beautiful. The interior kind of blew us away. It had all updated amenities and the décor is very comfortable and inviting. The screened in porch was a great place to hang out during inclement weather and offered us relaxation regardless of what the weather was doing.

I say hiccups in the title block because we were anticipating complete privacy and quiet. There is a double-wide trailer about 30 feet from the cabin which is angled actually toward it. There is an elderly couple who live in it so we didn't feel completely private. One of the owners called out for her cats several times. Also, the road into and out of the lake also runs very close to the cabin so be prepared for a bit of traffic on the gravel road.

All-in-all, it was a nice visit. Even though the things mentioned above are not in the cabin owner's hands, they did reach out to us and apologize for the little inconveniences. If you are looking for some swimming, fishing (didn't catch anything), kayaking and a hot tub with no cell reception then this would be a great place to stay!

Lovely, peaceful get away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in need of some down time & this was the perfect place. The house is beautiful and so clean it is like new. The kitchen is stocked with all of the utensils and pots/pans etc.. that you could need. Relaxing deck with a fire pit, nice dock and great hot tub on the porch. The lake is lovely and I was surprised at how quite it was. We had fun watching the stars & spotting birds. Metropolis is very close & we shopped at the Big Johns store there, it had everything we needed. Of course we had to check out Superman and the museum. People in Metropolis told us to go to Fat Ed's to eat and it is delicious also 718Brew Cafe was good. If you need more places Paducah is close by with lots of place to shop/eat and check out the quilt museum. But the best part of our stay was just hanging out and relaxing at the lake! Thanks & we will plan on another stay!

Staying at Mill Springs Cabin is an experience like no other. Whether it’s a breathtaking view of Hohman Lake from your private back porch, or a relaxing evening in the outdoor spa, there’s a sense of peace here that feels real and genuine.

Enjoy being in the heart of all that Southern Illinois area has to offer while staying only 15 minutes from Metropolis, Il and Paducah, KY. The cabin is situated along a beautiful 90 acre lake with an ample dock to allow fishing and swimming. The fully furnished cabin is simply a way to experience the countryside like no other tourist could.

Please be sure to visit the newly completed railroad to bike trail in Ft. Massac State Park and hiking in the Shawnee National Forest. Other must see stops in Metropolis are Harrah's Casino and the Superman Statue at Superman Square.

While you are in the area, visit Historic Downtown Paducah for unique restaurants and shopping.
