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.

                        We had a wonderful week at this lakeside home. It is a beautifully decorated spacious and well maintained property... both inside and out. There is a wonderful light and airy feeling to the home, and a lot of attention has been given to providing everything needed for a wonderful and comfortable stay. The lake frontage/lot would provide for any age range. There are both deep and shallow areas. The decking is generous and spacious and provides areas of both sun and shade. It is a little cove of heaven... right here on Lake Shafer!

                        The entire family loved the lake house and thought it was perfect for a group of 12. You can have everyone together and then there is also private space too! Grandchildren thought the double deck and slide was awesome. The kitchen and outdoor grill made for fun meals together. The double washers and dryers were a big help!

                        Our family (3 generations) rented this house and we had a wonderful vacation. The house was well equipped and fully met our expectations as descibed on the website. The access and views to the lake were wonderful. We had a terrific time fishing and swimming from the dock. My wife caught several fish and it was her first time fishing. The owner was great to work with and had the property in great condition for our arrival We will very likely rent this property again.

                        We loved this property! We had a large group ranging in age from 2 - 65 and all seemed to have a great week. There are so many ages and personalities in our group that it is hard to find a place that everyone can enjoy, but this place seemed to do it. The skiers liked the lake and were able to get in some good runs. The golfers loved the nearby courses and the kids (and adults) loved the top deck and easy swimming and fishing access. Plus the personal dock made for easy access on and off the lake. The house itself was beautiful; Very modern, clean, and comfortable. The owners met with us upon our arrival and answered all questions we had about the property, lake, and surrounding area, and they were accessible throughout the week to answer all questions we had and were very friendly, courteous, and helpful. - Because of the size and differences in our group it is always hard to please everyone for a week. (We, admittedly, can be tough critics.)...But we all had a wonderful week and enjoyed the property, area, and each other and made memories that will last a lifetime.

                        I just can't say enough about our experience. It was all that we expected and more. The place was clean and spacious and beautifully decorated. It is also conveniently located to activities in the area. We enjoyed the local restaurants and wine tasting. I hope we can reserve this treasure again soon!

                        The house is very clean and has a very comfortable feel. I felt right at home. Everyone loved the location and spent most of their time out on the double layer dock. There is plenty of stuff to entertain you inside the house too. Overall it was a great experience and would rent this location again in a heartbeat.

                        The house is beautifully decorated with very comfortable and cozy seating. The open floor plan and large windows makes you feel like you are always close to the outdoors. The view from atop the dock is wonderful, especially at sunset. The amenities cater to adults and children. My son loves the dock and slide and I loved the window seat.

                      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!
