                        We stayed at Nestled Inn for an October weekend and found it delightful! The house was extremely clean and well furnished. We had to contact the owners for about a lightbulb, and they were very helpful and got back to us right away. The location is beautiful - right across from the lovely lake. Great to kayak or canoe in. We enjoyed using the fire pit and the closeness to the Pumpkinvine Bike Trail. We hope to return!

Such a beautiful, peaceful setting, We really enjoyed ourselves and thank you for all the info on places to visit. The home was very clean and comfortable. They have it nicely decorated, makes you feel like home. They haven't forgotten a thing. Very relaxing after a day of shopping.

                        If your looking for a spectacular get away, filled with peace and tranquility, look no further! Nestled in was absolutely perfect. The cleanliness along with the warm and welcome atmosphere was off the scale! Home was absolutely gorgeous, well maintained, and beautifully landscaped. Look out the front bay window and relax to the view of a lake, or out the patio door to the beautiful yard filled with colorful birds and flowers! I have never seen so many humming birds so up close and personal! A sight to behold all in itself. Nothing like taking a good book out on the patio, watching the sun rise while drinking a cup of coffee and listening to the beautiful songs that birds sing so well! Just to take in all the beauty God has given us was absolutely priceless! The location is perfect, far enough from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to enjoy a ride into Shipshewana, or other surrounding cities in Indiana. Many good restaurants and so much to see. Our favorite place was Yoders cheese and meats and E&S store. Couldn't beat the selection or value. I purchased some sour cream & onion powder at E&S, fresh boneless chops from Yoders, and homemade Amish noodles from the farmers market, all three made for a scrumptious dinner! Loved the book at the house, very informative and lots of brochures on things to do. Mike and Linda were always available for questions and concerns and are very welcoming to their guests. Thank you both again and again for making our 30th Anniversary a priceless and very memorable experience. We will cherish our time spent in your home... Forever! <3

We are so grateful and it lets us know what we are doing right. We try to please everyone and want to do all we can do to help make their vacation a memorable one. Can you believe the humming birds??? I could sit and watch them for hours, they even come up to the feeder in Linda's hand when she is re filling them. I think we are going to start naming them....LOL. We also believe the location is perfect not only because of the beautiful lake out front but like you said it's far enough but only a few minutes drive to Shipshewana. Thanks again....Mike and Linda. :)

                        Our family enjoyed all of the comforts that "Nestled Inn" offered. From our first conversation with Mike, (who couldn't of been nicer or more accommodating) we knew that his and Linda's home would be everything we saw on VRBO and it was! House is absolutely charming, extremely well maintained, clean and very well equipped. All appliances newer and spotless, ample utensils, small appliances, ( loved the washer, dryer & dishwasher!!!) ) towels, inviting and comfy beds, and all the luxuries most would find in their own home. Home is decorated beautifully! Flat screened TV was a plus and a generous amount of channels were provided. The weather was perfect but we did use the central air one humid day & night and it was much appreciated. The remaining days we enjoyed the clean & fresh air! Family members and friends who visited us for the day couldn't say enough about how nice the house, grounds and it's amenities were! And they all loved shopping at the Shipshewana Flea Market and quaint shops in town.... Our two grandchildren and our youngest son lived outside, swimming in the clean and sandy bottomed beach area, kayaking, fishing and ending each evening with a roaring campfire, scary stories and s'mores! We were amazed by the hummingbird's that visited your beautiful gardens each day! We shopped at the Flea on both days, had lunch and delicious milkshakes at the Olympia Candy Shop in Elkhart on afternoon(so good) and enjoyed a delicious dinner at Essenhaus on our last night! The boys also spent two days at the nearby state parks and had a wonderful time there. We could not have asked for a nicer home, a very accommodating neighbor who shared his swim platform with our boys or a more tranquil location in the pristine town of Shipshewana! Wonderful memories were made for all! Thank you Mike and Linda, our vacation was lovely!

                        Owner response: WOW ! Thank you Nick and Debbie what a awesome review. We are over the top happy your stay was a Vacation to remember. That's what we really want for all of our guests is to have a great and memorable vacation especially when children and grand children are involved. Nestled Inn is a awesome place to bring the young ones. I could watch them all day at the water swimming, fishing, kayaking having so much fun. Meeting our neighbors..... who are by the way some of the finest people you could ever meet is a added bonus. I think they get a thrill out of meeting our guests from all around the Country and all walks of life. I hope by next summer we will have our own floating raft that seems to be a real hit with all ages. Please come back and see us we would be so delighted. Sorry about the missing minnow bucket I will be looking into it. Mike N Linda :)

                        Just returned from an awesome vacation. Met Mike & Linda when we got there. We took to them right away and they couldn't have been more accommodating. The place was absolutely spotless and had everything a person would need. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. We took the bass boat out and did some fishing and had a ball. Caught several fish which we released. We experienced the Shipshewana sale one day and the next enjoyed the sand dunes. This has been an awesome vacation thank's to Mike and Linda. Hope we can do this again next year. Dawn & Bobby Carmel, IN

                        Hi, My husband Dan and I, and a friend of ours , recently came out for a week vacation. The home is very nice ,well furnished with very nice pots & pans & dishes, ect. most every thing needed for a nice comfortable stay. There are bird feeders and bird houses to watch the birds while you are sitting at the kitchen table. It is a very nice place to get away and relax. We had one big problem, that was due to mother nature , and that was the bugs , due to all the rain they had before we got there. We couldnt go out at night to sit outside. My advise to the next people who stay is to bring a fogger and spray when you get there and bring some good strong repellent, deet , or, whatever. But the place it self is very cozy and charming. ManyThanks for letting us use, your beautiful home. Dan, & Sandi

                        My husband and I had a wonderful time at Nestle Inn for 4 days in May. Mike and Linda greeted us on our early arrivel. They have thought of everything a family needs for a quiet, relaxing vacation. The house and property were very clean and exceptionally maintained. We had soft, filtered water, nice linens, and up to date appliances. There is a lot to do in Shipshewana, Middlebury and the surrounding area. We enjoyed shopping the antique malls, flea market and the great restaurants within driving distance. Most shops, stores, and restaurants are closed in Shipshewana on Sunday, but a short drive to Howe and Sturgis, Michigan you'll find several places to eat and shop. Having such a close access to the lake, my husband fished to his heart's content, but he didn't catch that "BIG" one. We enjoyed watching and feeding the birds and one evening we were visited by a neighbor's cat and a very fat racoon. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone. You will not be disappointed if you choose this rental. We give it 10 stars. Chares & Joann from Maineville, Ohio

                        Owner response: Hi Charles and Joann, it was so nice to meet and greet you 2, you are such a nice couple . Thank you for the awesome review I got a little giddy as I read it to Linda...I even got a belly laugh when you said the big one is still there, im thinking he is a pretty smart Bass that's why he's still there and so big. The next time you come to Nestled inn I hope you nab the big one he seems to be hanging around the dock and pontoon, im afraid that when he is caught that the lake level will go down...ok that's stretching it a bit but he sure is a big one. . The 10 star rating you give us is awesome and over the top, it's a first . Thanks again and we are looking forward to your return....Mike and Linda

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: This is a picture of Mike and Linda with our 4 beautiful Grandaughter's. We bought this place as a cottage and renovated it into a beautiful 2 br custom built ranch home. After we retired we lived here full time for a while but decided to move back to our hometown . We did'nt want to sell our little piece of heaven so we kept it and want to share it. This way we can have the best of both worlds. Thanks for checking us out we would love to hear from you. Mike and Linda.

                      Why the Owner Chose Shipshewana:
                      We came to the area from S.E. Mich . For years the Shipshe area was our favorite vacation destination with all the things to do and see. We cant get over some of the bargains you come across while shopping. Still today we never grow tired of visiting and cant wait for the next trip to Shipshe. At one time I told the Grandchildren we were going to sell the Lake Home they started crying. Now we are going to keep it and share it.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The Lake and access is just steps right out the front door and the view is amazing. South Twin is not only a beautiful blue lake, it is one of Indiana's cleanest. You can fish and swim from the dock, pontoon boat or off the land. We have 2 Kayaks and a 12 ft rowboat included with your stay so you can explore the beauties that South Twin Lake has to offer or try you luck at fishing. Watch for a Soaring Eagle swooping down to catch a fish. Or a Otter that loves to swim along Kayak as though he wants to play. From the quiet serene back yard patio you can view a abundance of birds that visit our feeders. Pileated Wood Peckers, Baltamore Orioles, blue birds, and a host of unique birds. The Finches are so tame they let you sit right there while they feed. Humming birds are frequent visitors with 4 or 5 at a time fighting over the feeders. Fish Spieces generally caught are Bluegill, Perch, Crappie and Bass. The Indiana State Record Smallmouth Bass was caught...........You guessed it. South Twin Lake is a private lake, it also is one of Indiana's cleanest. South Twin Lake has no public access and is a 10 mph lake where no jet skis or speed boats are allowed, this makes the lake less congested and much safer. . It is extremely clean and spring fed . Its 115 acres around and 55 ft deep in the middle. During the summer months the lake very warm around 85 degrees.
