  • Awesome reunion place to get everyone together.

    "This wonderful place was where our family members from Alabama, Texas, Georgia, Florida and our new family in Indiana got together. My son's wedding was in LaPorte where my new daughter-in-law lives. We had no idea there was a place for us all to be until my other daughter-in-law in Georgia found Arbor Hill Inn and called me. We could have never had such an adventure if we had to rent hotel rooms. The great decorations and places to just be together were incredible. We had enough room to have dinner there after the rehearsal and the local friends that came were so happy to come in and see the Inn from the inside. We each loved our bedrooms. They have such charm and are each so different. The sitting rooms were great for those of us that just wanted to talk and for our guys to escape to watch the end of the Alabama-Florida football game. Plenty of bathrooms and the kitchen was just the right size for the cooking we did for the rehearsal dinner. There are fabulous photo op places on the grounds and I know I will be seeing family photos in Christmas cards with the Inn in the background. We had wonderful help from Kris and Laura. Check it out for a great family adventure."

  • Fantastic stay!

    "We would highly recommend this place. It is a beautiful place, well maintained, and the views are just gorgeous. The large deck held our big family for dinners each night while watching the sunset. The large kitchen with plenty of work stations accommodated a bunch of cooks and helpers at the same time. The large dining room table allowed us all to sit together. Clean up was easy with the two sinks and 2 dishwashers. The listing and photos were accurate except they didn't do the house justice. It's much bigger than it looks in the pictures. There was enough room that we weren't falling over each other and the adults had their privacy. The fact that every bedroom upstairs has their own bathroom was really nice - I loved not having to share a bathroom. The house was one of the cleanest we've ever stayed in. And the cousins enjoyed having their own floor downstairs with the big rec room and 2 bunk rooms. We enjoyed the local restaurants: Bridges, Tree House, and Sahara's. The younger kids enjoyed the zoo and the Heston Steam Museum. We all went for hikes in the dunes. Shops at Light House Outlet Mall and in nearby New Buffalo kept us busy on an overcast day. Some of us went golfing at the municipal golf course which was really decent. Sarah was great to work with during the booking process and helpful in answering our questions. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family."

  • Divine Weekend Getaway

    "We had a wonderful time. The condo met all of our expectations and was true to the description. Lodging was immaculate and beds were very comfortable; pool was clean and never busy; hiking trail was good. The patio had splendid views of the marina and more importantly the lake. We even had 4 superb fireworks shows from across the lake. Nice dinner at the Sagamore one evening and used the grills and kitchen facilities for other meals. We definitely give high recommendation. Thanks!"

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.

Visitors to Indiana Cottages

Indiana is a great family vacation destination. Whether you are fishing along the shore of Lake Michigan or hiking a nature trail, there are many different outdoor activities that you can enjoy as a family. There are also several fun amusement parks that offer rides and entertainment for kids of all ages.

If you are an outdoor-type person and want to explore nature, there are many state parks where you can go mountain biking or hiking along the nature trails.

Seasons to Visit Indiana

Indiana has attractions that can be enjoyed throughout the year. For those who want to enjoy the lakes and parks, the best time of year to visit would be during the summer months. The temperatures are generally hot with the occasional thunderstorms. The peak travel season is during the months of July and August which coincide with the summer vacation season. Many families choose this time of year to have an extended family vacation.
