What a special place Hahn Lake is; you’d be hard pressed to find a more idyllic, private venue with your own lake for rent in Southern Illinois. Hahn Lake is at the end of a 1/3 mile lane off of Van Road, close enough to town for your daily runs for coffee, far enough to be feel like a private hideout from the rest of the world.
It’s the perfect refuge for nature lovers: while visiting, there’s fishing, swimming, hiking, and bird watching. Our kids caught an abundance of fish one summer and it remains one of their favorite childhood memories.
I highly recommend Hahn Lake on your next visit to Southern Illinois.
