About Jeff and Heather Goelz
After living in this area for 18 years, we decided to move down the lake to be closer to family but could not part with this beautiful lakeside retreat. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, and we wanted to give other people the experience of lake life and encourage their inner adventurer to explore all that beautiful Southern Illinois has to offer. Fishing, boating, swimming, camp fires, wineries, hiking and most importantly, relaxation await you.
Jeff and Heather Goelz purchased this House in 2017
Why Jeff and Heather Goelz chose Goreville
Well-maintained lake front property on Lake of Egypt. Watch the boats from the covered deck surrounded by the shade of mature trees. Enjoy the lake with a two boat slip covered dock. Fish and swim right off your dock. Soak in some sun on the private beach while the kids swim. In the evening, roast some marshmallows in the fire pit with an amazing view of the lake. Inside, enjoy a huge recently remodeled open/eat in kitchen with new appliances. The property boasts a whopping 100 feet of rip/rap shoreline. Experience lake life at its finest as you relax and enjoy the fantastic views from your dock, deck or sun room. Three marinas service the lake, with live entertainment weekly for you to drop anchor and enjoy. Located near the wine trails and several state parks, it truly is a vacationer's dream. Come see the view and experience the fishing, swimming, boating, and relaxing in this awesome home. There are three bedrooms with queen-sized beds. Air mattresses are welcome (but please do not exceed 8 people).

Nice place to get away for a long weekend. Every thing was as advertised. They might want to update the DVD player. Nice sun room to view the lake from.
We will look into a new DVD player! Glad you enjoyed the views the Eagle's Nest has to offer :-) Check it out during the summer months, too!
Amazing view and Friendly hosts
My family stayed here for Christmas and absolutely loved our stay !! The view is beautiful and the weather was just perfect to sit outside on the deck and enjoy coffee and communication with family !! The hosts were VERY helpful with any needs and accommodating in every way ! I would recommend this place to anyone and we will definitely stay again !! Plenty of room as well :)
Sharing time with family is so special, and we are happy you could enjoy your time here. We hope you visit again!
Lake of Egypt Christmas
We had a great time. The host family were very cooperative and kind. Beautiful location any time of the year. You will love your vacation there two days or two weeks or more.
Thank you for the kind words! Come back for as many days as you’d like!
Another great location
After renting with Heather in May, we knew we had to come back to check out the other location. As expected, a great property, excellent location and a great experience! We’ll be back!
We LOVE it that you returned and chose to stay with us. We hope to host your group again sooner than later.

Beautiful house by the lake..
We really enjoyed staying at this beautiful house by the lake, great host and awesome views from every corner of the property..
Thanks for the compliments and taking great care of everything! Come back to visit in the any time :-)
We visited in November with family. We enjoyed our stay so much, that we immediately booked another stay for next summer. There are beautiful views, in a quiet neighborhood, with plenty of room for everyone. Heather was very helpful with check-in and in letting us know about what all there is to do in the area.
The most amazing compliment is a return guest - we are happy that you enjoyed your stay so much that you plan to return again! It will be an equally wonderful experience next time!
Best, Heather and Jeff
Ferne Clyff State Park is only 5 miles from the Eagle's Nest. It has easy to moderate hiking trails and a beautiful waterfall. Giant City State Park and Lodge is a must for hiking, horseback riding, and all you can eat, family style chicken.
