****ATTENTION BOATERS!***: Karis cottage sits on 20 FLAT lakefront acres. We love the gentle lakefront. However, the more shallow water is not always ideal for very large boats. We have a 27 foot SeaRay which does well, and rental companies are happy to deliver boats to our home, but if this is a problem or concern, please inquire. We do not control the lake levels....Ameren does. At times during the summer there may be as little as 3 feet of water at the dock.

We swim off of the dock (NO DIVING), kayak, and paddle boat throughout the year with no issue. It is a great place to fish and enjoy the sunsets. If you need a place to dock your boat in the off-season, please inquire about water levels to assure you have adequate depth. Thank you!
