About Jim Woodward

(Picture to the left is a Spring atv ride on one many of scenic roads)

My wife, Mary, and I enjoy outdoor activities, meeting people, and sharing our place. We love the Flint Hills and Lake Wabaunsee.

Jim Woodward purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Jim Woodward chose Kansas

I bought this lot in 1977 because of the beautiful view. I'm glad to finally build such a beautiful place on it!

What makes this cabin unique

The whole feel of the place is special. It is warm and cosy. It is on a steep lot and looking down at the lake through the hard wood trees. It has an almost "tree house feel" to it. It has a stairway down to a private dock on a no wake cove.

Treehouse Getaway - So fun!

  • 5 of 5

This is our first VRBO experience and we absolutely loved it! This particular cabin was perfect for our mini weekend getaway. It is even large enough that we plan to return with our two teenagers. We loved the detail and craftsmanship and that the two bedrooms were like suites on each floor. The deck and view are amazing and this cabin as well as the others owned by the owner each have their own private dock. Next time we will remember the lawn chairs and hopefully it will be warmer to enjoy the outdoors more. We enjoyed watching the ducks on the lake and the squirrel hopping through the tree during the early evening hours. Jim is very friendly and welcoming (via phone prior to our stay) and although it might be nice to meet him someday, we were never bothered by anyone during our stay. Highly recommended, and you won't be disappointed if you stay here!

Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cabin for a couple of weekdays in April to getaway and recharge. It was wonderful! The cabin was clean and cozy. Very few other people around given the time of year and week that we went so we felt like we had the lake to ourselves. The cabin had everything we needed. We cooked breakfast and lunch and ate at the Lodge at Lake Wabaunsee bar and grill which is just across the lake for dinner. Good bar food and the locals were welcoming. I would highly recommend this rental and anticipate that we will go back.

Wonderful getaway!!!!

Absolutely Beautiful and Relaxing. If the lake wasn't frozen, there would have been some fishing.

Perfect fall getaway with friends!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful and the view tranquil. We spent most of our time sitting on the dock and kayaking due to the perfect fall weather. Jim was very accommodating and did all he could to make our stay enjoyable. We will be back:)

Rustic cabin, very quiet setting during the week, when we stayed.

  • 3 of 5

Spent one night for a couples get away. Was adequate for our purposes. Floor and interior was clean. Windows and exterior patio could use some cleaning/sweeping. Really appreciate the "no pets" policy. The dock was really nice and would work great for boating and fishing. Overall experience was good and would recommend it to friends and family. One more negative, just to help owner and future renters alike. We were quite surprised that neither bed was made and sheets were in the dryer. We would expect both beds to be made, whether we needed both or not, and would expect both sets of sheets to be washed whether they were used or not, between each renter. Lake and surrounding flint hills were very pretty. K & P

Mainly, people enjoy their loved ones and the quietness of the lake and the scenic rural flint hills.There is a local rodeo, gravel road bike races, yearly burning of the tall grass and real cattle drives. There is a lot of wild life, there have been as many as 13 bald eagles have been seen in the air at one time. People come in several times a year for both deer and turkey hunting. Paxico is near and has many antique shops as does Alma.
