About the Owner

Owners Brad and Jennifer Olson purchased The Lookout at the Lake in 2017 as a vacation rental property. The Olsons are avid travelers with a preference for staying in neighborhoods, rather than hotel zones. They recently became full time residents at Lake of Egypt just down the road from The Lookout at the Lake.

This property is managed by Allison Hasler. Allison owns her own boutique cabins near Lake of Egypt called Dam Near Lake of Egypt Cabins and hospitality business called Hospitality Ops. Allison has a deep love for the hospitality industry and showcasing beautiful southern Illinois.

Our property features a private dock - perfect for swimming, launching kayaks, or to tie your boat up during your stay. There is a fire ring between the house and the lake shore for campfires.

A couple of highlights on tips:

+ BYO Life Vests to ensure proper fitting and cleanliness.  We do not supply life vests. 
+ BYO Beach Towels.  We provide bath towels but do not provide beach towels for the lake. 
+ Parking is tight!  3 vehicle MAXIMUM.  ABSOLUTELY NO TRAILERS.  If you have more vehicles or a boat trailer, please let me know and we can make arrangements for parking.
