About Jim Woodward

(Picture to the left is a Spring atv ride on one many of scenic roads)

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

Jim Woodward purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Jim Woodward chose Alma

I bought this lot in 1977 because of the beautiful view. I'm glad to finally build such a beautiful place on it!

What makes this cabin unique

The whole feel of the place is special. It is warm and cosy. It is on a steep lot and looking down at the lake through the hard wood trees. It has an almost "tree house feel" to it. It has a stairway down to a private dock on a no wake cove.

Treehouse Getaway - So fun!

  • 5 of 5

This is our first VRBO experience and we absolutely loved it! This particular cabin was perfect for our mini weekend getaway. It is even large enough that we plan to return with our two teenagers. We loved the detail and craftsmanship and that the two bedrooms were like suites on each floor. The deck and view are amazing and this cabin as well as the others owned by the owner each have their own private dock. Next time we will remember the lawn chairs and hopefully it will be warmer to enjoy the outdoors more. We enjoyed watching the ducks on the lake and the squirrel hopping through the tree during the early evening hours. Jim is very friendly and welcoming (via phone prior to our stay) and although it might be nice to meet him someday, we were never bothered by anyone during our stay. Highly recommended, and you won't be disappointed if you stay here!

Beautiful weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We headed to Alma for a weekend getaway. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate and there was a lot of ice. We were comfortable inside the cabin and enjoyed the fireplace and view. We’d like to come back when it is warmer to enjoy the beautiful lake.

Second time in less than 6 months staying at the property. My wife and I loved this place. Jim the owner is very responsive with the messages and if you have any issue in the cabin he helps you! We just left and we are already looking forward for our next stay there. The property is the perfect getaway for a quiet weekend to enjoy swimming on the lake, fishing, kayaking and grilling some food with a great view of the lake. The property is always super clean and very comfortable, very private location as well. Highly recommend

Delightful get away for annual mother-daughter retreat

  • 5 of 5

This cabin proved to be a perfect fit for our annual mother-daughter retreat. Very comfy and well equipped with cooking and eating utensils and pots and pans. The grand-daughters enjoyed the kayaks and being able to get in the water without leaving the area. The double beds were extra comfy, however, the hide-a-bed was too thin a mattress. It worked great for us because we left it as a couch the second night (only needed one person to sleep there). Loved the fact there were two bathrooms with a shower in each! Definitely would recommend this for a quiet, fun, get-away. Would like to go back in the spring or winter and enjoy the different seasons. Thanks Jim for a great stay.

Mainly, people enjoy their loved ones and the quietness of the lake and the scenic rural flint hills.There is a local rodeo, gravel road bike races, yearly burning of the tall grass and real cattle drives. There is a lot of wild life, there have been as many as 13 bald eagles have been seen in the air at one time. People come in several times a year for both deer and turkey hunting. Paxico is near and has many antique shops as does Alma.
