  • Beautiful secluded lakeshore house surrounded by nature.

    "While attending A July retreat in the Chicago area, I had the good fortune to find a rental house on Lake Michigan , that also served as a wonderful lodging for me during my retreat. This beautiful three bedroom,split level, charming lake house,is surrounded by beautiful nature vistas,visible, thanks to the full length ceiling to floor windows in most rooms.This enables the light to play beautifully on the warm, wooded paneled walls, as well as provide great illumination, even on a cloudy day. The house has the ambience of a secluded space, but the Michigan shore is a mere block away. A well stocked and organized kitchen adds to the pleasure of cooking,and makes dining in a real pleasure. At the rear of the house is a peaceful patio and barbeque area for good weather use. Artistic touches within the house invite the guest to enjoy the peace and calm within, or enjoy any of the electronics;phone, stereo, or TV, DVD,with thoughtfully provided instructions making it easy to use any of these devices. The ambience of this house in the forest setting makes one reluctant to depart.In the future, I look forward to sampling other seasons on this special property."

  • Nice big cottage

    "Nice big cottage by a quite lake. Well stocked and Kathy and her son were very helpful. However this is more of a vacation spot for seniors or large groups with older children. Not quite the right fit for a baby."

  • Back again :-)

    "We had so much fun last year we came back and once again Mother Nature smiled and gave us beautiful weather. Our family love it so much they are now calling it "our lake house". We cooked all our meals - your kitchen is so well equipped - the newly painted cabinets are beautiful. Once again we brought our kayaks, canoe - and a small sailboat. The little ones spent hours in the water and collecting shells and rocks. We did have a couple rain showers but your toy and puzzle cabinet in the family room kept them happily entertained. The rooms are so well insulated upstairs those who wanted to sleep in could do so. The sunsets are gorgeous and sitting in the lounge chairs at the end of the dock in the cool evening breeze - so relaxing. Thank you again for sharing your beautiful summer cottage on the lake. We're already talking about next year :-)"

Indiana Travel Tips

Getting to Indiana Vacation Rentals

There are two main travel hubs to Indiana. If you are traveling to the central or southern regions of the state, you will fly to Indianapolis International Airport. The airport hosts all major North American carriers and has regular commercial flight connections. If you are traveling to the far southern parts of Indiana, the most convenient access point would be Louisville International Airport in Kentucky. The airport is located just across the Ohio River which forms the state border with Indiana. For travelers who will be spending their vacations on Lake Michigan and in the northern parts of Indiana, the best airport to travel to would be either Chicago O'Hare International Airport or Chicago Midway International Airport. Technically, this area falls into the greater Chicago Metropolitan area even though it is part of Indiana. From all these airports, there are good public transport links into the cities and surrounding areas. There is an extensive rail network which provides easy access to the major cities. If you prefer, you can also hire a car and drive to your vacation destination.

Attractions and Activities at Indiana Lake Homes

One of the most popular vacation destinations in Indiana is Lake Michigan. The state borders only a small portion of the lakeshore but it is where many of the vacation homes are concentrated. Because Indiana is on the southeastern shoreline, visitors can benefit from magnificent sunsets over the lake. Favorite pastimes include fishing and boating. Many of the lakeside communities are quite seasonal and become hives of activity during the summer months. There are often fishing tournaments and other fun-filled events that take place in season.

If you want to explore some of the lakeshore, you can hire a canoe or kayak and go for a leisurely paddle. There are several State Parks where you can enjoy nature trails, go for hikes and spend the early morning birdwatching. The Dunes State Park is a section of land along the Lake Michigan shoreline which is ideal for wildlife viewing. There are many other state parks in Indiana where you can go hiking or mountain biking. In the south central part of Indiana, you can visit the Bluespring Caverns in Bedford where you take a boat ride through the caves. Indiana has a rich cultural heritage and this is evidenced by the many museums dotted throughout the state. Several are dedicated specifically to the artistic heritage of Indiana.

Seasons to Visit Indiana
