Recent Indiana reviews

  • Cozy stay at the Cozy Cottage

    "What a nice place to stay. The place was very clean, great layout, and cozy. You have two bedrooms, great for guests or kids. Beds were very comfortable. Having two bathrooms was a big plus too. The island in the kitchen made it easy to put food together and having a place to lay it out for guest. Outside grill was in great shape. You also get a portable fire pit, picnic table and a beach wagon for the beach. Will stay here again."

  • Awesome rental house

    "This house was amazing. Clean and well maintained. Photo's accurately show the appearance of the rooms. We especially enjoyed the golf cart and our grandkids enjoyed the many nice toys they had to play with. The wagon to the beach was another plus. Beach towels available and a beach umbrella also, which was a life savior for us. Highly recommend this beautiful vacation rental house. Owners very helpful with any and all questions."

  • A Little Slice of Heaven

    "What a perfect way to spend a weekend. Mickey and Becky, the owners, have covered every base imaginable. Not only is the location perfect, but the amenities and HOSPITALITY are even better. So much fun using the kayak, pedal boat, row boats, building sand castles, and fishing off the dock. The home was beautiful and I loved all of the personal touches. Our stay was just what we needed!"

    "Just spent a week on the island with 7 family members and had a great time. Pictures do not do this place justice. We had a wonderful relaxing vacation. Hal and his wife were very helpful and will bend over backwards to help you out. Weather was good and so was the fishing. Thanks for a wonderful vacation."

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.

Indiana is a great family vacation destination.

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.
