THIS CONDO IS ALSO FOR SALE AT $195,000. PLEASE CONTACT OWNER FOR DETAILS.

THIS MODERN LUXURY VACATION RENTAL TOWNHOUSE CONDO will impress you with its Gorgeous Lakefront Views of Pine Lake from the oversized upstairs Living Room windows. The two-story, Fully Furnished and Tastefully Decorated Condo includes a Private Boat Slip for your fishing boat, pontoon or jet ski. You'll love the Large Pool with its Lounging Area just steps from your Private Deck.

PARKING. The One-car Garage and Two Addtional Private Parking Spaces directly outside the condo offer Convenient Parking. Additional Parking is available on the private road alongside the condo.

BEDROOMS & BATHS. Relax in the upstairs Master Bedroom with its comfortable King-size bed featuring a pillow-top mattress. Destress by soaking in the large Jettted Tub in the Master Bath and take advantage of the convenience of a magnifying make-up mirror and hair dryer. The sunny downstairs Guest Room has a convertible day bed with a pop-up trundle which can be combined into a King-size bed or two separate Twin beds. It is adjacent to a Full Bath, also equipped with a hair dryer. Open the large Sliding Doors and enjoy the Private Deck with its beautiful View of the Lake.

If you like to cook, you'll be impressed by the Gourmet Kitchen and Breakfast Bar with its gorgeous granite countertops and its stainless steel appliances including a Gas Range/Convection Oven. The Wine Cooler (my husband calls it his Beer Cooler) is ready for your perfectly chilled beverages.

LOCATION. This condo sits directly on Pine Lake in the charming town of LaPorte, IN. Just open the sliding doors, walk across the deck, cross the lawn and you are at the lake. North Shore Drive is a private road that runs parallel to Pine Lake Road, across from the Thunderbird Bowling Lanes at the junction of Hwy-35 and Hwy-39. Only 1 1/4 hours from downtown Chicago with easy access to I-94 and I-80/I-90. Only 20 minutes from Michigan City and New Buffalo and 35 minutes from South Bend.

Just across the street situated directly on the lake, you'll find the upscale T-Bones Pier 11 restaurant and bar. El Bracero restaurant is a 10 minute walk away and Aurelio's Pizza offers quick delivery.
Closer to downtown LaPorte is the Round the Clock restaurant which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in a fun casual setting. The more upscale Portofino Grill is situated directly on the Briar Leaf Golf Course only a 7 minute drive away. We highly recommend the amazing Trattoria Enzo with its great food and cozy bar in downtown LaPorte, only a short 10 minute drive from the condo. You've simply got to try the risotto and the delicious martinis!

                      The Thunderbird Bowling Lanes are directly across the street right next to the Dairy Queen Brazier. Pontoon boats are for rent at the nearby Inn just a short walk away across the small lakefront park adjacent to the condo property which has a barbeque picnic area. The Inn features an upscale restaurant and bar. A popular sports bar is located across the street from the Inn and features great family food. There are four public golf courses in the nearby area. The Blue Chip Casino and The Four Winds Casino are just a short drive away. Ice fishing is a popular activity in the winter time. Be sure to attend the Notre Dame football games in South Bend only 35 minutes away. Enjoy the lakeside beach at Soldiers Park, the fabulous beaches of Lake Michigan and the "Singing Sands" of the Dunes National Lakeshore.

                       

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About: My husband and I have lived all over the world and when we saw this property and its location, we were immediately sold. I am an Interior Designer, and because we bought the unit while it was still under construction, I was able to specify the types of floors, cabinets, countertops and appliances we wanted and decided to upgrade everything. We love sharing it with our many appreciative renters! When we are in residence, our 4 pound Yorkie loves to run laps around the pool enclosure for exercise!

                      Why LaPorte:
                      We were looking for a condo on the water and propertries on Lake Michigan were a bit out of our price range. So, we looked around and found these amazing condos on Pine Lake in LaPorte, IN. Great little community near Michigan City, New Buffalo, and South Bend. Convenient access to I-94 and only 1 1/4 hrs. to Chicago! The fact that there are 3 golf courses within 7 minutes of the condo is definitely a plus for my husband!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      We enjoy the small lakefront park adjacent to the condos which has a barbeque area and fishing pier. Some great restaurants (i.e T-Bones Pier 11 - ask for John, the owner) and bars (i.e. Third Base - ask for Kent or Angie, the owners) are just a 5 minute walk away. There is a terrific little cigar shop right around the corner across from the beautiful, park-like cemetary with its enormous trees where we love to go strolling with our dog.
