Have fun or just relax. Soak up the beautiful sun on our 300 ft. sandy beach. It gently slopes into the clear waters of Halls Lake for perfect swimming, playing, or soaking up the sunshine.
Welcome to Shalom by the Lake, owned and operated by your hosts Joe and Suzie Kegel and family. During the summer months Shalom offers complimentary use of kayaks, canoes, paddle boats and rowboats. Don’t forget to put on sunscreen before you head for the beach! Cool off in the lake, slide down the water slide, or jump off the cool water mat.
Your children will love the creative playground with swings, climbing ropes and tires, and two fantastic slides. The ground is like beach sand so there’s a soft landing to boot.  With our expansive lawn and property, there’s lots of space for playing baseball, volleyball, soccer or basketball. Also, enjoy nearby forest trails for hiking and biking. You never know what you might see in terms of wildlife. Make sure you have your camera or cell phone to capture a picture.
Winter at Shalom is great fun. You have a choice of complimentary use of cross country skis, tubing hill and ice rink (weather permitting). The great outdoors awaits you, no matter what the season!
