Woodward Cabin #2 with boat house

Bedrooms 4
Space 2,200 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

Come and relax while you discover nature at its finest at our cabins at Lake Wabaunsee. Lake Wabaunsee is a beautiful, clear, spring-fed lake in Northeast Kansas.

This cabin is a completely furnished luxury cabin that sleeps six on the upper level. The upper level features three bedrooms, two full bathrooms (including an in-suite bathroom in the master bedroom), a spacious living room, an eat-in kitchen, a laundry room with a full-size washer and dryer, a front entry porch, and a spacious back deck with a scenic lake view.

An added bonus for this cabin is the boat house. This makes an for ideal location in which teenagers can hang out.

Have more than six in your group? No problem-- the lower level features an additional bedroom and bathroom, as well as a living, dining, and kitchen area. It also features covered and open-air decks which overlook the lake. The lower level can accommodate an additional four people comfortably.The upper and lower floors are always rented only to the same person or group. There has been some confusion, if you rent it you have the upper and lower floors as well as the boat house.

This cabin is located at an ideal spot on the lake to watch the slow parade of boats that cruise around the lake. This cabin and boathouse are in a 'no wake' cove across from the free swimming beach. The docks provide easy access to boats for the passengers.

About Jim Woodward

(Picture to the left is a Spring motorcycle ride on Skyline Road)

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

We have the cabin to help us create good memories. We hope you will come visit and create some good memories of your own.

Jim Woodward purchased this house in 2000

Why Jim Woodward chose Alma

Lake Wabaunsee is 30 minutes from our home. I first went to the lake on a fishing trip with my dad when I was 10. I had a great time and caught my fill of sunfish. It continues to be a good place to create great memories. There is something enchanting about the lake. It renews us both mentally and physically when we spend time here; it is the perfect break from the stress of everyday life.

What makes this house unique

A trip to Lake Wabaunsee is like going back in time, a more simple and peaceful time.

Loved the cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion this weekend and everyone was SOOOO happy with BOTH cabins that we rented. It worked out perfect. This one that sleeps 10 - was great cause it had a basement that gave us more room if it rained or if it was too hot to come there to eat supper! They all enjoyed it thoroughly! They'd do it again for sure!

Great Place!

Nice location on the lake, house not what we expected

  • 3 of 5

Driveway was very steep, and would be difficult for some people to walk up and down. The cleanliness of the home did not meet our expectations. Beds were not made up when we arrived and we did not have enough towels for more than 1 day, so we had to wash towels every day. The house has enough bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate a large crowd, but the living room is small and seating for meals is insufficient.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with our family. The house and boat house is very nice with plenty of room for four families with kids. Our family loved having two kitchens and spent our evenings playing pool and hanging out in the basement. Now we all want our own pool table. The sunsets on the lake were gorgeous and the A/C and small refrigerator in the boathouse was an added bonus. There was one TV in the upstairs living room. Our only suggestion would be to maybe have another TV in the basement area. We like to watch movies together in the evenings and the downstairs area was larger for that. It was nice having the TV upstairs in the morning so the kids had something to watch while we made breakfast. We had to make a couple of runs to the nearest town of Eskridge for groceries. It was such a nice little friendly town and just a few minutes away. I would definitely recommend this lake house.

The Flint Hills and Wabaunsee Lake didn't disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

This was our families first time at Wabaunsee Lake. It was so much fun! The house was very nice and the boat dock was a hit with the kids jumping off into the water! Everyone was very friendly! We will definitely come back soon!

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend at this cabin, everything worked properly inside it was clean and ready. Outside we had to clean the deck and stairs when we arrived, lots of spider webs, leaves, and debris. The grill was completely full of ashes and we had to clean it out in order to use it. The water near the boat house is deep which is nice, you can drive your boat right up. Getting from the dock down to the boat is a bit tricky as you have to climb a ladder, which prevented some people from being able to get in a boat. Overall very nice, the air conditioner in the boat house was really nice and allowed some of the older folks to be out near the water even on a hot day.
