Lot with Cabin / Home on 65-Acre Lake Patterson

Home / Cabin on Lake Patterson!  Just 30 Minutes South of Effingham....

Need a place to relax and unwind?  How about a 65-acre lake with fantastic fishing opportunities? How about a pontoon boat with a nearly new motor and a fishing boat with a motor also; there is even a canoe!  A double decked boat dock with power lifts!  Oh yeah, I forgot to mention a 2-bedroom home/cabin!  This place is as turn-key as they come for recreational fun, fishing and just incredibly peaceful.  The home is partially furnished with all appliances included and out front is a carport.

Folks, the couple that owns this lot are completely in love with it and were very active in the little community down at Lake Patterson!  I believe they donated fish for stocking and paid really close attention to the management for fish quality.  This lake has great fishing!!  Stripers, Catfish, Large Mouth Bass, Bluegill and Crappie!  As a lot owner, you pay $500 a year and that takes care of maintenance of the common property.  So with this lot, you get the home and the land it sits on and you also own 1/25th of the entire lake and common grounds.  The membership is limited to 25 members.  Portions of the lake are open for duck hunting and you can even build a blind if you’d like.  There are no ATVs allowed on the property so the peace and quiet you enjoy is also enjoyed by the surrounding wildlife.  This place is unbelievably relaxing and just 30 minutes south of Effingham IL.

Now as a hunter myself, this area around Lake Patterson is some of the best deer and turkey hunting anywhere!  So if you already own a hunting property nearby and a desire to have a hunting cabin, you should take a look at this place!  If you're looking for a place to hunt and are going to travel and need a place to stay, you could start with the cabin and either buy or lease some nearby hunting property. water, partially furnished, great fishing, boats in place, roads and electric already in place, nearly new roof, furnace and pretty much anything you need, and this place is ready to go!  I can tell you from experience, building a cabin is one thing, however the expense of making it accessible and enjoyable is another. This place makes it simple and enjoyable and your not disturbing the wildlife on your farm.  The 65-acre lake.…do you have any idea of the cost to construct a lake of this magnitude these days? Ten years ago I built a 10-acre lake that cost over $75,000 (that doesn't include a dock, house or utilities.  Lot #4 at Lake Patterson is a bargain!

The owners lived in Effingham, both professional individuals working in Effingham, and on the weekends and on some summer evenings would run down to the lake.  This is not a Lake Sara. This is a quiet, peaceful, low traffic place. The owners have retired, moved to the southern United States and realize they need to sell the property up here.  I have known Steve and Linda for 40 years, and I can tell you they do things the right way.  I know there are many things in the house that have been recently updated. I am certain the boats have been very well maintained.  They have been gone for nearly a year so it's not as colorful as Linda kept it, however the rock sidewalks and the basics are in place to really make this a neat cottage or home!
