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.

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

Perfect Weekend Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's second time at this cabin and we absolutely LOVE IT! I almost don't want to say how amazing it is as I want to keep this place a secret! You truly feel like you are staying in a tree house! Sitting on the swing on the back deck is so relaxing. The private dock on the lake has some of the most beautiful sunrises you will ever see and the kids loved swimming and jumping off the dock over and over and over. The cabin has all the comforts of home and the Direct TV and WiFi was a nice bonus, although most of our time was spent outside. If you are looking for the perfect place to relax and unwind and spend some quality family time together, this is the place! Jim, the owner, was so helpful and readily available when we had some last minute questions. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us and we can't wait to come back!

Booked this as a surprise birthday get away for two couples. Had a wonderful relaxing weekend. Beautiful views and everything we needed for a perfect weekend. Cabin was perfect and amazing tree house atmosphere. Swimming and fishing off the dock. Peaceful view from the deck.

Excellent accommodations! Only draw back for us were the steps to dock since we're seniors!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was comfortable and clean and decorated well. We enjoyed our short stay especially swimming and fishing off the dock. The golf course is in excellent condition so make sure you take your clubs. The full kitchen would have been great to cook in but the Lake Wabaunsee Lodge serves delicious food in the evening. A great place to get away!

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.
