Hi Guys . Im throwing this out there. Im looking for a lakefront cabin with a doc for my boat to rent over fathers day weekend for my wife and I. We would like to stay in IL. within 3 1/2hrs of Chicago. We will be all catch and release fishing. A resort is not out of the question, just nervous about leaving gear in the boat.

I've had good luck doing exactly what you're looking to do through AirBnB and VRBO. I haven't stayed anywhere in IL, but I've stayed in some pretty cool places on lakes in WI and MI.

A quick search showed a couple places on small lakes near Springfield. But if you spent some time on there I'm sure you can find somethin.

Kinkaid would be my choice.

If you could find a house for rent on rental sites ON Lake Sara that would fit your criteria. Docks with decks on the roof....Lake of Egypt has plenty of nice Houses with decks ON the Lake.

Was there last weekend. All the remaining older cabins (7-12) on the point were bulldozed and rebuilt from scratch. Very nice.
Bass fishing was good. Focused on main lake points to secondary points and did not venture too far back into any coves.
Weed cover very sparse this year, so when found, can be helpful.
Saw many many nice cats caught. We did not fish for crappie, but a few folks were saying 12-15fow, all on the smaller side.
PM if you'd need more info.

Steamy weekend for sure. Fishing was limited to early and late. Fishing was good. Decent crappie and lm bass. Funny thing tho, biggest bass came on smallest (crappie) baits and smallest crappie came on big bass baits.
