McCarthy Lake House- arcade games, beach & views.

Lakefront holiday home with kitchen and patio
Whether you want to step away from the city life, have a quiet weekend, a girl’s trip, or a blast with your family at the beach, this is the place for you! You will be greeted with modern amenities and a fantastic lake view!
Our newly updated large family home offers a billiards room, arcade room, shuffleboard, large kitchen, laundry room, screened porch, and so much more! Both floors offer great views of the lake.

Step away from your normal chaos and let us pamper you with our lake home! You can cozy up and read a book, sit on the beach, take out the kayaks, enjoy a game night in and order pizza, or whatever makes you relax. We have provided you with a coffee machine for your morning views of the lake! A gas grill and utensils are provided to have a bbq lakeside also! We have kayaks, and some beach gear for you to enjoy. This home offers a lot of arcade style games for indoor fun as well! These include: pool table. shuffleboard, pac man arcade, arcade basketball, air hockey, ping pong, lots of board games, and puzzles! Come the evening, take a break next to the fire pit under the stars!

We own the beach directly in front of the house ending at the large sycamore tree. Please note that beach access varies with the level of the lake and the Illinois River. Generally, beach availability is only affected in early Spring if at all when river levels are high.

Guests are welcome to bring their own boats and jet skis to put into the water. Ramp access is not far from the home. Please just let us know prior to leave you the key to the public ramp.

Guests are welcome to bring floats and any beach/ pool like items to enjoy in the water. While we have spent a lot of time cleaning the beach and yard, we do recommend water shoes. There is no current in the lake. Don’t forget your fishing gear! Life jackets are provided with the kayaks. Please use with caution and swim at your own risk.

Some good bug spray is a must! Being on the water and sand, their are lots of different crawling and flying insects. Keeping the lights off in the evening outside, and the doors shut, will help this issue a lot. We spray around the house, but the critters are inevitable.

Our home is on a busy highway with semi traffic. We recommend eat plugs if noise will bother. We recommend a sleep mask as we have skylights.

Havana is a historic town and newly updated with lots of shopping and boutiques! There are quite a few great places to eat. Lewistown and canton are both close with some fun things to do! Peoria and Springfield are both within an hour drive.

We are close to: State Ridge State Forest, Dickson Mounds, Big Horse Winery, Chautauqua National Park, Spring Lake State Fish and Wildlife Area, Emiquon Nature Preserve, Rice Lake State Fish and Wildlife Park, Orchard Hill Apple Orchard, Lakeland park, and Big Creek Park.
Air-conditioned accommodation at this holiday home offers coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils. Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit.

Guests can surf the web using complimentary wireless Internet access. Smart televisions are featured in guestrooms.
