3 Bedroom, 1 1/2 Bath: Charm of a 1947 Lakehouse with 2017 Amenities

Built in 1947, renovated in 2017 with addition of a large Master bedroom second story deck, this cottage is a great retreat for a family vacation, friends gathering or anniversary celebration. Upstairs, Anna's Lakehouse has a King room, second bedroom with Two Queen beds, original 1947 hardwood floors, half bath and new deck overlooking the lake with pub table and steps down to the lower level. Downstairs is a kids room with bunk beds, a living room with pullout couch, Full bath, and kitchen. Don't forget to spend some time at the puzzle/game table to relax, slow down and enjoy the lake pace. Outdoor areas include a new sectional, beautiful new dining table that seats 6, fire pit, and Weber charcoal grill. Kitchen has new quartz counter tops, subway tile, and white cabinets just off the inviting dining area.

Enjoy the day sitting on the downstairs patio reading a book, kayaking the lake, or get some serious sun on the upstairs deck overlooking beautiful Lake Webster. We also have a large dock for fishing or swimming. Please take time to enjoy the pictures of Anna's Lakehouse that are included in this post. We think you will come to appreciate this special place as much as our family has come to cherish it.

To simplify your stay, bedding is provided including indoor towels and wash cloths. All outdoor beach towels, blankets, etc. should be brought by our guests.

Wonderful week on the water.

  • 5 of 5

My husband rented this property for my Birthday week! It was wonderful! So beautifully decorated, and so well stocked in the kitchen and the bathrooms. The King bedroom looking out over the lake, and the deck off of it to drink your coffee on, is one of the things I will miss the most! Waking up to that view....incredible! My husband and I loved kayaking around the little island not far from the dock in front of the house!!! So nice the kayaks were included in the rental price. We also loved eating outside overlooking the lake. It was a great way to celebrate my birthday!

Relaxing, cozy weekend at a beautiful, charming lake house.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a long weekend at Anna’s. The house was wonderful and accommodating and we enjoyed our stay. Explored the area and did some hiking at Chain O’ Lakes State Park. Grilled out and enjoyed wine on the deck with the serene views of the lake. A true gem of a home and a welcomed experience.

Beautiful, awesome and very cozy, one of the best lake homes in Indiana

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and cozy lake cottage that was perfect for my teenage son and my 2-4 legged kids! Perfect spot on the lake for fun or just for R&R. We brought our seadoo and loved to have the lift right on the dock and awesome pontoon to see the views on the lake. We have visited this lake a few times in the last year and this is our favorite spot and home and cannot wait to return. It is very popular now and I know why, hopefully can find an open stay for next summer. Steve was friendly and very attentive and professional with being sure we had everything needed and to have a great stay! Love the nice yard and landscaping and the outdoor comfortable patio. You can sit there forever and take in the fresh air and scenery. Thanks again for sharing your family home, how much fun that will be to continue new memories! :)

Very peaceful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Anna's Lakehouse! Steve and Lori are wonderful to work with and have put a lot of heart and soul into their Lakehouse! The accommodations were clean, comfortable and very homey. We spent most of our time on the back patio just looking out over the lake! So peaceful!!

Anna's is Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time. The cabin is every bit as advertised and the Orlander's (sp?) are wonderful to work with. It was affordable, fair and fantastic. We will be back next year and many more following.

The owner's provided a list of what you should bring..toiletries, beach towels and food. The remainder of the cabin is ready to go! It was Air Conditioned comfortable, quiet and enough space for 8 people to sprawl and relax from Sun up to Sun down. (skeeters were fierce, but it can't be helped)

The master bedroom is spacious and the view from the deck is nice. The other 2 rooms were progressively smaller, but adequate for younger children (mine are not) still we made due. The queen beds were comfy, but the twin bunks were a touch lumpy, so we didn't use them as much.

2 bathrooms, one shower, so getting around in the morning wasn't an issue.

We were 5 minutes away from town, a grocery and some smaller antique stores etc. and only 45 minutes from Shipshewana. It's quiet and relaxing here. If that's what you're looking today!

Relaxing Get Awar

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, comfortable get away. The cottage is clean and inviting. The decorations take you back to a simpler time, complimented by the quiet environment, variety of scenic views, and a peaceful setting. Everything was as promised and more. Enjoyed time fishing from the dock, Kayaking across the lake and around the island, swimming in the cool water, and relaxing on the decks. Would recommend highly to anyone looking for a comfortable get away and out of the hustle and bustle of resort vacations.

About Steve and Lori Orander

Our hope is that couples, families and extended families will enjoy the peace, beauty, and charm of Anna's Lakehouse as much as we do. Being native hoosiers all our lives, we enjoy simple things done well with an eye for quality and detail. This property has a unique ability to draw people together, reduce stress levels and create some space for conversation and fun to unfold. It's a special place for all who come.

Steve and Lori Orander purchased this house in 2016

Why Steve and Lori Orander chose North Webster

Our story is unique in many ways. As kids we visited Bob and Anna Childs at this lakehouse as Lori was their grand daughter . Our family sold the lakehouse in 1988 and two different owners had the property from 1988 to 2016 when we bought the property back into the family. Since October 2016 we have been renovating/restoring this gem to her previous luster. Our second story 20 x 25 foot deck with sliding glass door, new shiplap throughout the second floor, original hardwood floors, 12 panel glass doors, and quartz counter tops give this lakehouse a great feel. Each enhancement was added with Bob and Anna's original dream in mind, to welcome people, make them feel special and leave them much better than they found them. We think they would be very happy with Anna's Lakehouse 2017.

What makes this house unique

Built into a hill with a double lot, Anna's Lakehouse provides a one of a kind, elevated lake view with plenty of green space for relaxing, playing games or just enjoying the beauty of Lake Webster.
