              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: I am the pastor of a small church in Chicago, IL. My wife and I enjoy horseback riding and country living!

              Why the Owner Chose Shipshewana:
              Our home is located off of a cul-de-sac on a small channel leading into Shipshewana Lake and we are just 8 minutes from downtown Shipshewana and all the Amish shops as well as the Blue Gate restaurant and theater. We are secluded and quiet, especially during the late Spring through early Fall months when the woods block out most of our older neighbors, most of whom are gone during the day. There is plenty to do in the area: Shipshewana is a bustling Amish village with close to 100 shops and specialty retailers and many home-style dining establishments that serve bountiful Amish fare. Shoppers can search for handcrafted items, baked goods, antiques and more in picturesque turn-of-the-century storefronts and enjoy seeing horse-drawn Amish buggies clop through town. Every Tuesday and Wednesday from the first of May through the end of October, the Midwest’s largest flea draws serious shoppers and the simply curious. The Blue Gate Theater hosts some of the best in Southern Gospel concerts and several musical plays during the year. The Hudson car museum will take you into the past as you walk the rows of cars. Don’t forget the Heritage Trail that takes you throughout the area. We love to spend our vacations here and hope you will too!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Imagine yourself sitting on the deck overlooking the lake, listening to the 'clopping' hooves of the Amish buggy horses with a cup of coffee in the coolness of the night. Imagine the cheese factories and Amish bakeries minutes away!
