Witmer Lake cabin description
This beautiful log cabin is located on Witmer Lake. This lake cabin offers a great getaway with all the modern amenities. The quaint front porch leaves you unprepared for what is behind the front door. A warm family room area invites you in with fireplace and animal heads that make you feel like you are in Colorado.
Great master suite off of family room. Loft above kitchen for extra sleeping area or just to get away. Full service kitchen with pantry, laundry room and half-bath and access to huge deck overlooking Witmer Lake. Downstairs has large recreation room and 2 bedrooms. One with a queen bed and the other with double bunks and queen (perfect for the kids).
Witmer Lake is part of three lake chain with all water sports available and good fishing. Shipshewanna is nearby for great shopping and a new indoor waterpark. Pigeon River within 30 minutes for canoe trips, hunting and nature watching. Great golf within 15 minutes at Cobblestone and Noble Hawk. Setting is great for sledding and ice skating.
The lake bottom is silty and good for young kids with depth of approximately 1 foot at shoreline and 3 foot at end of pier. NO DIVING!

Myself and 5 other girls found ourselves in a place of pure beauty! The property is just beautiful and the lake is so clean and clear. The house is gorgeous, just as described. The house had plently of room for all of us and still room for plenty more! We loved how the house was stocked with your basic needs for cleaning and cooking, etc. The house sits in such a great secluded location as well as the pier on the lake. It's so amazing, so quiet and private. It's truly amazing. We had such a wonderful time and can't wait to go back! We are already telling all our friends and co-workers what a fabulous place this is! The homehome owner was so great and so helpful. We are so lucky we found the place and will be returning in the future! What a great way to spend the weekend with friends!!! Thank you so much!

Awesome family getaway at the lake
Awesome family getaway at the lake
My family of 4 stayed at this beautiful home from June 10th thru June 17th, 2011. I cannot truly express what an awesome experience this was for our entire family. The home itself is exquisite, very rustic native american vibe, within a modern home with all of the amenities. The owners were very helpful, and flexible with our reservation request. The next door neighbors were very nice and neighborly, answering many questions about the area, and even treating us as if we lived there year round - very rare to be welcomed as a renter from another state. The location of the house is very secluded and private. The lake itself is clean and quiet most days, except for the occasional boaters enjoying water sports. The fishing from the pier was very gratifying for the father in-law who came to visit during our stay, he managed to hook 25 catfish during one entire day. Lots of natural wildlife abound, as we saw deer, rabbits, groundhogs and chipmunks, all literally just feet from the front door of this wonderful home. Overall this family trip will be impossible to top. This entire region of Indiana is completely underated as a vacation getaway. Visit this area if you want peace, quiet and relaxing atmosphere and a safe place for the kids to run and play outdoors. We have stayed at many other VRBO listed properties, but this one tops them all. Thank you to the owners for sharing this awesome family retreat with the rest of us :)

An excellent experience
An excellent experience
We just returned from 4 nights and 5 days at this beautiful cabin. The setting is gorgeous and the cabin is incredible. The pictures of it are right on target. It is not only spacious (truly does sleep as many as it says) but decorated so beautifully - warm and comfortable. It was neat and clean and had anything you would need for the time there. Every time we walked back in the door one of us would comment how awesome it was. The kids fished off the shore and we had a campfire two nights that we were there. The Amish country is worth touring and the shops in Shipshewana and surrounding area are excellent. We highly recommend this beautiful place and will defenitely return at another time ourselves. The owner was very helpful and quick to respond! What a beautiful experience it was to be there.

My sister and our two families have been renting houses for three years. This was clearly the best we've ever stayed at and would be very difficult to beat. Beautiful place and wonderful lake. We thought it would be to small but was perfect for what we needed. It was like you had your own lake and the house is located where you have alot of pricacy, and lawn for kids to play. We would highly recommend this to anyone. So glad it was avaiable for us to use.

What a great place to relax and unwind! A very beautiful home. A home you would expect to find in Montana not Indiana! Awesome!
