After looking at a lot of property on Lauderdale Lakes and Madison WI Lakes, we decided to take a look at Lake Springfield IL -- and decided on a small house there. It's not a MacLaren house . . . lots of steps up and down. A big plus is the 2-1/2 car insulated garage where the boats will go after closing. We hope to use it "as is" next (2018) spring/summer and then decide if we want to build a new cottage to replace what's there. The setting is great for swimming, skiing and hanging out. Also, it's just 2 hours from Byrnes Mill. We are pretty excited to finally have a lake home!
PS -- I have raced sailboats (Y Flyers, Sunfish) and iceboats (DNs) on this lake in the past.
