I've probably seen a zillion vacation possibilities in Missouri and Illinois so it's frankly kind of hard to impress me. This new Mt. Sterling place managed to do the impossible mainly because it has a very sweet private lake.

From what I can tell, this is a completely new addition to Airbnb in what is described as "idyllic" Mt. Sterling. I agree. The listing says it's "Wi-Fi-free" with a boat dock, private lake, fire pit, etc. Take a look at the pics for yourself. I think this place looks epic.

New Mt. Sterling, Illinois Airbnb Has a Sweet Private Lake

There are no reviews so far on Airbnb which is understandable since it's a new listing. The nightly cost as of this writing is $261 so if that's affordable to you, maybe you can be the first reviewer for what looks like a nice new option in west-central Illinois.
