About Shelby & Olga Kilmer
Hello! We are Shelby and Olga Kilmer! Our life is an adventure because we love to travel! We visit family and good friends that live in the U.S. and Mexico! We've been to Canada, Italy, and on the Danube River to see Germany, Austria, & Budapest! We are avid anglers and that is one of the many reasons for having our log cabin at Pomme de Terre! Shelby is from Kansas and is a Math professor. I am from Texas and a Spanish interpreter/instructor. We're bilingual in Spanish and English! We have twin adult sons. Rich and, Liz, our beautiful daughter-in-law, both university graduates. They enjoy family sports with our two adorable grandchildren, Karina, who has been a dancer since age 3 and now is learning the cello. Nicky, who continues learning to play the violin. Our other adult son, Chris, is an undergrad majoring in physics. My mom, Delia, 92, loves to travel with us! We live in Springfield and enjoy scenic drives through Mark Twain Forest, spot faults, camping and fishing, too! Nothing is more enjoyable for us than to get to know people from other walks of life, to learn about their culture, traditions and languages!
Shelby & Olga Kilmer purchased this Cabin in 2000
Why Shelby & Olga Kilmer chose Urbana
We have been looking for "the place" to stay because we enjoy fishing for bass, walleye, and muskie! We selected this area because it is not a very busy lake by our standards. There is a small Nature Conservation Park not far and to the south is the cabin! We like the quietness of the area and also our neighbors! We enjoy the scenic drives to Lead Mind and Tunas and getting acquainted with others in the area, especially the gentle Mennonites, whom Shelby is a distant kin. We see deer, raccoon, armadillos, possums, turtles, cows and camel! Yes, camel! In all, we enjoy our log cabin home a great deal, especially sitting on the deck with our cups of steaming hot coffee while soaking in the view of the lake or by the fire pit enjoying the evening as we roast marshmallows! We hope you will also enjoy your stay in our home! Nuestro Hogar es Su Hogar! Our Home Is Your Home!
What makes this Cabin unique
We were taken away by the fantastic view from the deck of this log cabin! We enjoy sitting on the deck during the day and evening and really appreciate the quietness and serenity of our log cabin's location!

Property owners were a delight and were very helpful. Very nice place I hope to visit again soon.
Relaxing and not "people-y"
We had a great stay! Loved Pomme De Terre Lake! It was peaceful and very rarely did we have to be around other people while on the lake. We loved all the mom and pop places we stopped at. The neighborhood people were very friendly. The back deck view was amazing. Sat there each morning and evening just amazed at God's handiwork. We would definitely visit this cabin again-it was perfect in every way!
Peaceful get away
Enjoyed the view, quiet and nature
A Great Getaway
The property was very, very nice – well kept, super clean and offered all the comforts of home. Our girls loved the rustic touches and huge fireplace. Sunrise and sunset from the expansive deck area were just breathtaking and we loved being able to have a small fire nearby to warm up. It was a wonderful stay and we'd recommend it to friends.
Our hosts were extremely helpful with recommendations on nearby activities.
Minor disappointments: There is no direct access to the waterfront. We assumed there would be from the photos. We also planned on cooking but assumed there would also be more dining options in the nearby towns - not the case. Neither of these two points would keep us from visiting again.
We thoroughly enjoyed the property and our relaxing visit.
We loved it! Can't wait to go back when the weather is warmer!!
We look forward to having you return to our home! Hope to see you in the summer?! Thank you!
Family reunion visit:
Beautiful cabin with Great Lake View. Well maintained very comfortable. We had a few light fixtures needing repair/bulbs. I sent an email & they had someone come out on Saturday to repair most but, unable to repair light over kitchen sink. Only recommendation is someone needs to go through & check light fixtures& batteries in flashlights plus need a new can opener.
I look forward to returning.
Yes, you are correct! A beautiful cabin and a great lake view!
We are in the works for a new light fixture over the kitchen sink and will stay on top of checking all bulbs are in order. Will replace the can opener, too! This will be the 3rd one! Third time's a charm? Looks like rechargeable batteries will work best for the cabin! Glad these issues were brought to our attention! We apologize for the inconvenience!
We are so glad that you enjoyed staying in our home and that it was very comfortable! We look forward to your return!
