About Linda McDonough
Our family went on houseboat vacations cruising the Mississippi river and skiing at Chestnut Mountain Resort when we were growing up. We loved the area so much my parents looked at property to buy in the Galena area. The first piece of property they purchased was in 1966. The cabin was eventually built in 1983.
Linda McDonough purchased this Cabin in 1983
Why Linda McDonough chose Rice
Our parents built a cabin for guests and family to stay in when they visited. After they passed away, we decided to rent the cabin out 5 months out of the year. We haven enjoyed vacationing there for many years and would like to share it with others.

Great place for the kids! Enjoyed the fishing and the fire by the water!
Other then the algae in the lake being a tad heavy and the queen bed a bit rough the place was awesome! We did leave a day early as the air conditioning couldn't keep up and the temp inside was 83 degrees. We didn't complain so not owners fault. We did notify when we left.
Great getaway. This is was our 3rd year going.
Very clean and private. Guaranteed to catch fish.
Beautiful cabin on perfectly private lake!
This property is beautiful and so private...almost too good to be true. The owners were always available to answer questions yet were not nosey or pesty. The cabin is clean and modern yet still remains rustic, the pictures don't do it justice. The fires by the lake were perfect. The accommodations were great for 5 adult females. A perfect getaway for anyone. I have no regrets and will definitely be back one day! Thank you, Linda, for a great rental experience!!
Wonderful secluded cabin with everything you need inside.
Our 6 adult crew looking for a getaway from the big city thoroughly enjoyed the Cabin on the Lake. This was the perfect secluded time away from the noise that we needed. Not being experience campers, this cabin had all the amenities that we needed to enjoy the outdoors without all the fuss of camping. The owner was easy to contact with any questions we had and made us feel right at home. Highly recommend.
Cabin on the lake
The cabin is very well maintained and super clean. We could not have asked for anything more. My husband and nephew had a great time fishing in the crystal clear water and although all caught were too small to keep - maybe next time! We will absolutely be coming back, really relaxing wonderful stay.
This was a definite 5-star experience for our family. This cabin and lake was the perfect spot!
We found this cabin and lake to have all that we were looking for! Great location built into the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi. Just a short drive to Chestnut Mountain Resort for off site activities. Rustic cabin and a beautiful lake offered complete privacy where we enjoyed fishing swimming and boating, and we used all three: the paddle boat, canoe and rowboat! The property had several well marked paths for hiking in and around the timbered bluffs. We especially enjoyed the fire pit area all 3 nights located right in front of the lake. Grandkids really loved this place and are already asking to go again next year! Just the perfect getaway place!
