  • A Slice of Heaven

    "My family and I really loved it here. It was fairly secluded, we really felt like we were away from the world. THe kids loved the place as much as we did. We didn't have much plans, so just enjoying the place and the lake was great. The weather was a perfect fall day. Waking up to see the fall leaves all around us through the windows in our bedroom was amazing. One of the highlights of the trip. I love fall, so this was really perfect. I really love the rock steps down to the dock, they look old and beautiful. There were yellow and orange leaves covering everything. We had no problems with the driveway, I could see issues if there was a frost, but it was fine. The bathroom is simple, but perfect for a lakehouse! Our only complaint was that there was no door on the bedroom, which meant for more difficulty in dressing/privacy. It would have been nice to have a door or at least know about it ahead of time for packing more pajamas, but it worked out fine. It just would have been nice to understand the layout ahead of time. I really think we'll be back. The price is great, the distance perfect for us. I really want to see this place in the summertime when the kids can swim in the lake. We did take the boat out for a short row, but it was quite windy and a little difficult to row around. Still, this place was tranquil and amazing. I loved every minute we were there. PS. Thanks for the great games/books/movies and the plentiful cooking supplies! Worked great!"

  • Great for large group - lots of beds & HUGE grounds to roam

    "We had barn house & farmhouse. Since we mostly had adults in the farmhouse, it was always quiet there. The farmhouse has all window air conditioners (that only worked so-so) & ceiling fans. The barnhouse has the kitchen & all the living and eating areas plus full bathrooms on the main floor & upstairs. The vast majority of the barnhouse is rough-hewn wooden beams which makes it virtually indestructible. Compared to other rentals where I worry the kids might damage something, the barnhouse was great for the kids to play and run with no worries. There was 1 queen bed in the laundry room behind the kitchen on the main floor. Upstairs were 3 private bedrooms (2 with queen beds and 1 with a queen and a twin). There was also a big dormitory-style bunk room with 8 bunks that worked well for filling up with kids. The upstairs also has lots of tables & seating. Mostly the kids used it for playing board & card games or sitting on the sofas to watch TV. There was also a long bar where we sat & talked one evening. Plus there was an area with a very long table & chairs. We didn’t eat there but did move them out to make a big open space for our square dance. Elk Ridge Ranch is quite isolated from neighbors which made it nice so we could be as noisy as we wanted and not worry that we were bothering anyone. Also it was comforting to know the kids could run all around and there were no busy streets or hazards like a swimming pool. There is no place for bigger kids to ride bikes or skooters since all the driving surfaces are gravel - though small kids can ride trikes on the sidewalk. The wifi doesn’t always work; comes and goes. Adults enjoyed walking over to golf & to fish on the grounds. We also had a lot of fun sitting on the wooden benches around bonfires in a giant wire basket. We paid Dave, the owner, to take all of us on a hay ride. It was fun & he let the kids take turns helping him drive the tractor. They loved that. Our group also enjoyed going to the pioneer village at Spring Mill State Park, Holiday World Amusement & Water Park, deluxe golfing at Sultan’s Run, the French Lick casino, and swimming at a beach at Patoka Lake. We were lucky the big Stassenfest Festival was going on in Jasper when we were there. There were more things in the area that we wanted to do but ran out of time so will have to wait for our return to Elk Ridge Ranch."

  • Very relaxing vacation!

    "We spend a very enjoyable week at this unique wonderful cabin. We enjoyed sitting on the screen porch reading or enjoying our morning coffee. The house is well stocked and well maintained. The neighborhood is very nice. The white sand beach is a great place to relax also. The beds are comfortable and the cabin is well equipped. We would not hesitate to rent this cabin again."

  • Ultimate in Relaxation!

    "We had a girls reunion weekend at this lovely home, and enjoyed every moment. Just seconds to walk to the beach, and a few short minutes to the dunes / state park. We enjoyed walks (and runs!) along the beach, and explored many hiking trails along the dunes/ Lake Michigan. The house was well stocked with paper products, and the kitchen offered a spacious and clean area for cooking and enjoying many meals together. The evenings were perfect for relaxing in the living room, and enjoying the view. The internet worked flawlessly. Certainly the house is not fully updated, but we found it clean, comfortable, and enjoyed the quirkiness. The owner was very responsive/prompt in answering all of our questions prior to the trip. Thank you!!!"
