Lake Shafer house description

The perfect blend of fun and relaxation in this spacious and modern 3400 sq ft. home with breathtaking views of Lake Shafer.

From the built-in window seats, drink in the quiet morning as the lake awakens to a new fun-filled day. Sip coffee, brewed hot in the modern granite kitchen complete with every amenity as you spot blue heron, swans or even a bald eagle, as the fish jump hungrily for their morning meal.

The family begins to stir, refreshed from the 5 comfortable, plush bedrooms:
A first floor master suite w/ lake view, queen bed, jacuzzi tub and jetted shower
2 mini-suites w/ lake views, queen beds and full baths that connect with the
2 themed rooms
The Safari Room with twin bed and full futon
The Clubhouse Room with 4 twin bunkbeds large enough to sleep teenagers/adults

Water fun abounds from your dock complete with boat lift and jet-ski lifts. Sunbathe on the 2-story partly shaded dock while the kids enjoy the waterslide and a shallow 2-4 ft. deep protected swimming area behind the dock. You won't miss out on any of the fun with great main lake views from the home,dock, balcony and patio. Waterlogged? Boat or drive the 5 miles to Indiana Beach Amusement Park or the beautiful Tippecanoe Country Club public golf course. Visit the Whyte Horse Winery or load up the family and enjoy the latest movies at Monticello's Lake Shore Drive-In Theatre!

After all this sun and fun, your family has built up a large appetite. Enjoy a gas barbeque or firepit dinner together while seated at the large dining table, breakfast bar, window seats and 2 outdoor tables.

The Shafer Queen paddle wheel cruise boat goes by as the lake settles down. So you, too, settle down with a good book in the hammock or maybe it's the rocking chairs that beckon you to relax as the sun sets on this beautiful vacation at Lake Shafer.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: My husband and I travel the world for a living but have made our home in Indiana. Some of our fondest childhood memories include lake fun with our family and friends. We wanted to provide our children with those special times and only hope your family will enjoy the lake house also.

                      Why the Owner Chose Lake Shafer:
                      We have rented vacation homes in the Lake Shafer area for a few years now. The location is extremely convenient to both the Indianapolis and Chicago areas. Monticello provides activities other than just the lake that our family enjoys; Indiana Beach Amusement Park, golfing, biking, and hiking. Also, Purdue University is close by. GO BOILERS!
