About Jeanie Leim

We bought this property in 1995, as soon as we discovered Tims Ford Lake and the fact that we could have a dock at our property. It has been a wonderful place for our family to grow up on and now our grandchildren to make more memories with. It began as a 1200 SF cabin on 1.5 acres with the probability of completing the basement. All has come to fruition of our dream and the icing on the cake was when our eldest son and his finance' chose it has their 'destination' wedding in early June, 2016.

Why Jeanie Leim chose Tims Ford Lake

Large treed lot tucked inside a safe, quieter cove for swimming and floating. Lots of windows open to the lake.

Fabulous experience!!

  • 5 of 5

We could have not enjoyed our Memorial Day Weekend any more!! The Luv Shack is a great blend of updated modern comforts combined with aged wood, etc. Our expectations were exceeded in every way, and we hope to be repeat customers. Thanks to the owners for sharing this slice of heaven with the rest of us!!

We had a great time at the "LUV SHACK" and as usual the time goes by too quickly when you're enjoying your vacation. Jeanie and Paul were fantastic in their efforts to make our stay perfect. Thanks so very much for all you both did with making our stay a great memory !

Was a wonderful short get away for my family and would stay here again in the summer!

  • 5 of 5

Was unable to enjoy the lake due to the time of year but would most certainly book this home again in the summer ... would love to have had a TV in the basement (just a suggestion)!

Everything and more

  • 5 of 5

This lake front home has much to offer. We visited over Thanksgiving, and it had everything we needed (and more). There is a regulation size pool table, foosball, nice tv, and great deck and patio opportunities. The appliances are like new and there's plenty of seating space for meals. There are several steps with handrails down to the dock (steps are pretty standard for anything on Tim's). Even after the dry fall and the lake being down, water still surrounded the dock (this also surprised us considering how low the lake is right now). There is covered parking for your vehicle, which was unexpected but nice - would be really great in the hot summer. It might be a good idea to have a tv in the downstairs game room, but we connected our phone to the home's sound system and listened to a playlist - no complaints here. Black Friday shopping crowds weren't a problem, the fast Wi-Fi let me shop online while enjoying coffee on the deck looking at the lake! Although we were secluded, we felt very safe - all the doors are in great condition (like new) with current lock sets. We def. recommend this home. The owner was quick to reply to any email questions before or during the visit. We all agreed during the summer it would really be a great place to stay.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you chose your special Thanksgiving Holiday at our home and it meant your expectations! Your suggestion for a TV in the game room is something we plan to install in the Spring! We appreciate how well you cared for our home, too. Sincerely, Jeanie and Paul Leim
