Shipshewana house description

Your vacation is our priority. Our lake home is located on the shores of beautiful North Twin Lake. With a spacious open floor plan and an entire wall of windows facing the water you are never too far away from a gorgeous view. Our home is beautifully decorated and has everything you need to enjoy your time away. This location borders a DNR preserve and is secluded and private, offering plenty of interaction with nature and wildlife. Our house features 90 feet of lakefront providing for a fishermans delight and family friendly setting. There also is a 'fire pit' area for a late night campfire under the stars. While private we are just a short drive to Shipshewana and all of the wonderful attractions that it has to offer. Our prayers are that you also will 'be led beside still waters' to our lovely lake home.

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: My wife and I are both teachers and always enjoy hosting guests throughout the year. I teach architectural design and my wife is a retired special education teacher. We have children and grandchildren who love to visit us and enjoy the fun and beauty of the lake.

                      We currently live on South Twin Lake and are planning on both retiring in this beautiful place. We purchased this additional lake property in 2007 and decided to develop it into a 'perfect' lake house. We added all the things that we love in a house: wood floors, tile foyers, stone fireplace, oak cabinets, and a spacious floor plan that opens up to the lake on 3 sides.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our beautiful home offers privacy and easy access to restaurants,shopping and the Toll Road. We love to add personal touches to your stay to make it the best vacation ever. We offer a 'FAMILY FUN' package special to enjoy your vacation even more! The special includes: * use of 3 boats: a canoe, deluxe paddle boat, and a row boat. * firewood for the outdoor fire pit * 50 of our favorite movies for the 42' flat screen television * local coupons * fishing supplies
