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.

What a lovely, relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this quiet cabin in Anthony! Although our visit was in February, so we didn't get to see the lush green the pictures show, the weather was unseasonably balmy, and we did get to take the canoe out for a leisurely morning paddle. Although there are other cabins nearby, things were pretty quiet, and we weren't at all bothered by neighbors. We also enjoyed tinkering with all of the little extra's that are packed into the cabin. Besides all the basic necessities, Gary and Connie have provided a collection of games and activities to enjoy. We even got several kites aloft (and didn't get them stuck in the trees). The stars were gorgeous, and we enjoyed peering at them through the telescope. Gary and Connie are so helpful and communicative. They'll go out of their way to make sure you're well taken care of.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the kind review, Brian. You were blessed with a beautiful February weekend! Our family enjoys all seasons at the cabin. Yes, summer weather offers more hours of sunshine and enjoyable outdoor activities; however, it is still a wonderful stay in the winter. We hope that you will refer your family and friends to us. Best wishes with the new baby and please come again!

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay at the cabin and having everything provided was a plus. This was my third stay and I plan on coming back again . I guess my only concern on this trip was problems with connecting to the Wi-Fi it just seem to kick it so often and I did have some work related items to take care of. But overall I would recommend this is a perfect Cozy retreat.

Owner's Response: Welcome back, Debbie! We are honored that you continue to choose our cabin for a peasceul retreat each year. Your feedback is valuable to us and our potential guests, so thank you for your honesty. We have the same WiFi service and also had poor reception recently. They tell us that they are replacing equipment and will soon be back to the reliable high-speed. If they don't, we may switch providers. Many people depend on WiFi, even on vacation. We look forward to your next visit. Take care, Gary & Connie

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!

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!
