If you’re looking for lake homes for rent in Illinois, set your sights on Lake Sara, in Effingham County. Constructed in 1957, Lake Sara became a vital resource in providing water to Effingham County and surrounding areas. Today, the lake continues to serve that same purpose, while catering to locals’ needs for outstanding outdoor recreation water sport fun! Once you experience Lake Sara, you’ll forget that you’re well within driving distance of such metropolises as Chicago and St. Louis. All you’ll know is that you’re home!

Blue Point Creek was impounded in order to form Lake Sara, which ultimately feeds into the Little Wabash River. The lake itself covers 840 square acres of space, becoming an instant attraction for anyone in the area looking to make a splash! Area anglers certainly look to these waters to fulfill their want for quality fishing, as Lake Sara is known throughout the Midwest for offering up irresistible catches. Hunt for bluegill, walleye, crappie, channel catfish, and largemouth bass, along with carp, bullhead, and gizzard shad to name a few. The lake teems with numerous populations of fish from years of meticulous stocking. And while it makes for fruitful fishing any time, you won’t be able to resist putting your angling skills to the test at any of several fishing tournaments hosted on the lake each year.

Lake Sara is encircled by 27 miles of shoreline dotted here and there by lakefront properties, full-service marinas, campgrounds, and intimate resorts. Water toys of all shapes and sizes are welcome here, where there are no motor restrictions posed on boats. Launch your pontoon, sailboat, speedboat, kayak, or Jet Ski from the lake’s own public boat ramp and hit the open water! Jet Skis are held to specific guidelines to promote safety, guaranteeing everyone can have a fun and carefree time. Whether you prefer to catch the sights from a wind-whipping sailboat or savor the finer details by exploring Lake Sara’s many coves from a raft or kayak, you’re only a splash away from the time of your life!

Lake homes for rent also share prime waterfront real estate with such enticing recreation accommodations as a public beach, picnic area, and several campgrounds. Once you’ve dried off from a day in the water, you’ll want to appreciate Lake Sara from the perspective of hiking or biking along any of the many trails that line its shores. And your swing will surely benefit from being tested by a pleasant round or two at any area golf course. Such notable links as Cardinal, Fore-Way Challenge, and Effingham Country Club combine challenging drives with stunning backdrops to create a golf experience you won’t soon forget. If you’d like to live on a Lake Sara area golf course, visit for property listings.

Once you get Lake Sara under your skin, it will be delightfully difficult to think of this recreation wonderland as anything other than home!
