Cedar Lake is located in Northwest Indiana, only 55 miles south of Chicago's Loop!
Cedar Lake is an 880 acre recreational lake. In the early 1900's Cedar Lake supplied much of Chicago's meat packing industry with ice. In the 1920's the lake thrived as a vacation destination for many Chicagoans who would arrive daily by train. Less than an hour's drive from Chicago, Cedar Lake is a great place for a family get-a-way. Today Cedar Lake is growing again with the addition of many luxury homes and condominiums on the lake. there are a number of lake front restaurants to enjoy, including the sand bar and most recently the Light House, with beautiful outdoor dining.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Hello, my name is Bill Port. I am a real estate Broker with RE/MAX Realty Associates. I have previously owned a construction business and have had the opportunity to renovate the homes of some of Chicagoland's most prestigious residents. While I now work as a full time real estate broker, I still enjoy building and working with my hands. This home was a true joy to transform into what it is today. This is my family's home and we will gladly let you use it as yours also.
Why the Owner Chose Cedar Lake:
When my family purchased this home it was in need of great repair. The home was basically a series of multiple additions; the oldest of which originated in the 1800's Today, there is very little that visibly remains of the original structures. We have renovated this home inside and out in Adirondack Style, with log siding to complete it's rustic feel. The look is rustic, but the feeling is pure comfort. While in the home you will notice the craftsmanship in nearly every room, as well as in the exterior decor. We try to constantly add to the artistic charm of the home. Our most recent addition is a hand crafted Totem Pole carving that guards the front door. If you are looking for a peaceful home to relax with your friends and family, you should consider staying here. We enjoy having guests enjoy the beauty of the lake. If you would like help determining if this is the right place for your get-away, just pick up the phone and give me a call. -Bill 219-613-7527
