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 Winchester

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!!

From the lake view to the crickets and singing birds, everything about this place is peaceful. Everything you could need is provided. Don't pack much, because it's all here for you. Jeanie was very responsive and easy to work with.

Wonderful lakefront home with awesome dock!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely perfect for our vacation! We brought our ski boat and loved having the dock with lift for easy access to the main lake and swimming in the cove. The house was the perfect floor plan for us. Our teenage son brought a friend and they enjoyed playing pool, foosball, and PlayStation (brought from home) at night. The kitchen was well stocked (great quiet dishwasher too!). The king size bed was very comfortable and the bathroom renovations were spa like! It was an easy drive to Winchester/Dechard for great restaurants. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!
