About Gary and Connie Jacobs

We live nearby to the cabin, so access is convenient. We enjoy playing golf and the Anthony Golf Course is a well-kept, affordable course on Anthony Lake. The cabin is the perfect place to entertain guests or unwind after a busy week. We know that you will love it as much as we do!

Gary and Connie Jacobs purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Gary and Connie Jacobs chose Kansas

We waited for an Anthony Lake property to come available for years. Now, we have a place to enjoy and share with family, friends, & you! The neighbors at the lake are great! Many of them live here year round.

NOTE: Anthony Lake is apx. 60 miles SW of Wichita, KS. Located ~1 mile off a paved state highway on a dirt road.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is a peaceful retreat away from busy lives, traffic, & daily stress. The decks offer a perfect lake view and beautiful sunsets. The interior design is fun, groovy, and with plenty of unique charm. Winters are cozy and summers are a great time to be at the lake.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Great spot for a peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed spending our honeymoon here. The cabin was charming and had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and the AC worked great. We loved fishing and watching the birds and wildlife, and at night we had a blast playing cards and listening to records. We very much look forward to returning when the weather is cooler.

Great place to visit

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay with an amazing "home-away-from-home" feel. Very calm and relaxing lake with lots of fun things to do. Cabin was way underplayed and was great. Will be staying there again!

The cabin was spacious and very clean. Everything you could need was provided.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an extremely relaxing stay at the cabin. Our first night there some locals came by in their boat and offered to take us for a ride around the lake. They shared some history of the lake and surrounding areas. I love to fish but don't have many opportunities, so that was fun. I didn't catch any, but my husband did, so this will remain our little secret! We'd love to come back someday. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone who wants to kick back, listen to old records, play checkers and soak up some sun!

Thanks you to the Jacobs!

Owner's Response: We love hearing about your experiences at the cabin! Yes, we have wonderful friends at the lake and when we are there, sometimes we take a sunset cruise with them, too. :) The cabin has been booked all summer, so finally it is our turn this weekend to get in some R&R lake time. Can't wait! We look forward to hosting you again soon. Take care!

Absolutely TRANQUIL!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped inside the door, there was just a very peaceful, "Welcome Home" presence. It was obvious that 'this' Little Piece of Heaven was very much loved and cherished. We felt like we were entering into someone's 'private' home who totally "delighted" in sharing their home with others. Every detail was provided for even down to 'toothpicks'!

We loved having our morning coffee out on the dock watching the sunrise over the water, the water birds flying by barely skimming above the water, and the baritone sounds resonating from the "Jeremiah" bull frogs; followed by our early morning peaceful canoe adventure. Eating watermelon in the yard, listening to your album collection, baking Choc Chip cookies and just sitting around with NO agenda nor time schedule. :)

We had family join us later on and they remarked how they would love to have a stay here as well for their anniversary. With SIX kids, they will soak in the tranquility. This little haven will remain on our 'getaway' list forever.

THANK YOU, Connie and Gary for you gift of hospitality and making this such a wonderful and memorable EXPERIENCE for our family. We'll be back!

Owner's Response: Deb, We are humbled by your kind words and we are glad that you enjoyed your time at the cabin. Until someone actually stays there, they probably won't really understand what you mean. We feel that same peace every time we visit the cabin and lake. There is just something special about that place. Thank you for your communication before and during your stay. Thumbs up to you and your family as #1 VRBO renters! Until next time, all the best! Connie

Glad you were able to get some fishing in this time. Also, thanks for "paying it forward" with the s'mores gift pack. Our next guests appreciated it. :) Until next time, enjoy summer! Gary & Connie

What a great cabin! It's obvious from the time you drive up the pride Gary and Connie take in this place. It's immaculate inside and out. Everything you could possibly need and then some is there. Loved the record collection, listened to tunes we hadn't heard in years. The deck looking out to the lake is great for morning coffee and an evening brew. We really enjoyed listening to the bullfrogs and watching the humming birds as they came to the feeders. Nice fishing dock and the fish were even biting, no keepers but we did our part to feed the little ones. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to staying again.

Owner's Response: Welcome to VRBO stays! We enjoy renting other vacation homes and now we have one to share, too. So glad that you had an enjoyable and memorable stay at the cabin. There seems to be a "zen effect" as soon as one arrives. We also appreciate the care you took to leave the cabin as you found it - ready for the next guest. Glad you could escape work for a few days of rest & relaxation. Come back anytime! :) Gary & Connie

The lake cabin is a perfect little getaway for couples. An early morning or late evening canoe float is a great way to view the local nature and scenery.

During the summer there is plenty of lake action on the south end of the lake with boating; however, our dock is in the no wake zone so it is quite peaceful.

I like early mornings with a cup of coffee on the deck. Then serve a hearty breakfast to begin the day. My husband prefers evenings with a fire in the fire pit, good music playing, burgers on the grill, and a cold beverage in hand.

Fishing, boating, and swimming with a private dock.

If you venture into town, Anthony also offers wonderful clothing stores, gift shops, & a nice Christian bookstore/coffee house. There is also a hospital, public library, McDonald's, and laundry mat. it is a charming, quaint community!

The local 9 hole public golf course is across the lake with a driving range and practice putting green.

Come see for yourself why everyone loves a few days at the cabin. There is something for everyone!
