Property description

A nice country retreat consisting of 40+ wooded acres looking out on a 7 acre private lake located 40 miles west of Indianapolis off Interstate 70 . Enjoy boating, swimming and great fishing-the lake is stocked with bass and blue gill. Miles of hiking trails venture in the adjoining woods of Dogwood Springs Forest Preserve that are especially beautiful in the fall. Large, fully equipped kitchen with seating for 20 includes industrial oven/range. Living room views the lake with comfortable seating and HD TV. A large deck off the kitchen and living room is equipped with barbecue and two patio tables. Or use the fire pit barbecue area near the lake. The cabin room has the fireplace and an assortment of books for reading. The game room is in the lower level having a television, pool table, kitchenette and walk out patio. The Dogwood Springs Guesthouse is a destination location suitable for family reunions & group getaways.
The house is recently remodeled, fully furnished and stocked with everything you need except food. We will do all we can to make your stay an enjoyable and memorable experience. Please use caution because you are in a wilderness area and use of the lakes is at your own risk. We recommend you bring sunscreen, insect repellent and your own fishing gear. Also, please use caution, there is heavy truck traffic on HWY 243 from the local quarries. Thank you for your interest.
