Sanctuary Shores is the perfect landing for your entire crew! With plenty of room to enjoy your lakeside fun! Meander out from the great room onto the large deck overlooking the lawn, brick campfire area and path leading down to your own private 120’ pier. Wade out from the sandy shoreline with the little ones to swim and splash and play in the sandy-bottom shallows. Beach or dock your boats during the day … enjoy star-studded skies, roasted marshmallows, and family tales around the campfire in the evenings.

Truly a sanctuary to rejuvenate and relax amongst the stately pines and wooded privacy of your own “little” haven on the lake. With sunlight in every room, high cathedral ceilings, and the warmth of knotty pine throughout — Sanctuary Shores is sure to be your favorite vacation spot for years to come!

The main level of the Sanctuary Shores home has 2 bedrooms (2 kings) and full bath. The large loft area has additional room with 2 twin bunk bed sets for additional sleeping. Downstairs, there is a finished lower recreational room with 3 bedrooms (2 kings and 1 queen) and a full bath.

We had an exceptional good time at Sanctuary Shores. The House was equipped too please all ages. The kids didn’t want to leave. They spent all their time in the loft playing or downstairs playing games. We had a beautiful campfire enjoying the solitude of the setting. The whole family would be more than happy to come back again. - Lois A, Cascade IA
My family and I enjoyed our vacation very much. We liked the accommodations very much. The area is very peaceful. We plan on staying in the area again next year, and using one of your homes again. Thank You again for everything. I have told other friends and co-workers that if they are wanting a place to get away to in that area to use you! - Renee M, Geneva IL
We had a great family time and enjoyed the accommodations a lot. The grandkids are already asking "when are we going back to your other house on the lake?" HA! Thanks also so much for getting my pillow back. I appreciated that a lot. If all goes well I am sure we will be back next year. So convenient for all of us! - Karan J, Platteville
Our family loved the Sanctuary Shores house! It was beautiful, clean, and easily accommodated out 3-generation family of 11! Both house and grounds were spacious and well maintained. One unexpected bonus was the wildlife that traveled thru the back yard - deer, raccoons, cranes, and wild turkeys make multiple appearances - to the delight of all us city folk! Thank You for your great service. - Marilyn & Larry C, Phoenixville PA
