Jimmerson Lake house description

Our home is nestled among 50-60 huge trees on 3-4 acres of private land. As you enjoy your coffee in the morning on the monstrous 20 by 25 deck sitting enjoying the lake and all the wildlife you'll know you arrived. Unlike so many lake homes that have no privacy and your neighbors are just feet away you'll find you can't see our neighbors just the beauty of Lake James! Large home, over 2300 sq feet, 2 screened in decks for the evenings and all the yard you could want for sun bathing, volleyball, grass sledding or just relaxing in the many seating areas across the property. Other ideas and guest favorites:
- Bring your boat and fishing gear. Skiing, tubing and sunbathing are all available during your stay. Make sure you swing by the the lake's sandbar and grab lunch from the floating aqua grill.
- 4-5 miles of biking
-1200 Acre Pokagon State Park. Enjoy the huge lodge on Lake James, Potawatomi Inn. 10 miles of hiking trails,
horseback riding, winter activities!

                      Northern Indiana has over 100 lakes for the boating, fishing, skiing enthusiast. Lake James is Indiana's 2nd largest fresh water lake, with over 1300 acres of water. The lake is connected to 4 other lakes all accessible by boat for additional exploring. While you're on the lake stop by the two marina's for fuel, ice and other boating items. Later in the day enjoy any of the four restaurants on the lake you can boat to and eat! For the fishermen in your group stop by Bledsoe's for all your fishing supplies, fuel, food, misc live bait!! Ask them for a map of the lake and they will help to show you the hot spots to fish. We are very lucky to have a state park located on the Lake James.
