About the property

Enjoy beautiful waterfront views in this 3 level 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home

Our home is located on the south shore of the largest basin on Crooked Lake in Angola, Indiana. The home faces north and enjoys beautiful sunsets and wonderful water views. Because of the location of the home and shade trees, it is sunny and bright but comfortable all day. The home is within walking distance of Captain's Cabin, a local restaurant. From our deck we see fireworks, hear concerts in the distance, and watch boats, kayakers, and skiers go by as well as see the occasional sea plane landing for dinner at the restaurant.

The master bedroom has large windows facing the lake and both the first floor and the walk-out basement level have decks facing the water. A new 60 foot long pier has a 10' x 12' area at the end for entertaining on the water. The sand is soft but protective water shoes are recommended. The kitchen has new appliances (dishwasher, refrigerator with ice maker, stove, and microwave) and a round oak dining table. The adjacent living room has large windows to enjoy the lake view, a comfortable sofa, a large TV with cable, several chairs, books, games, puzzles and a game table. A cozy screened in porch leads to the deck. The second floor has 2 bedrooms (1 master with a California King bed and a large guest room with queen and a separate "twin-over-full" bunk bed). If two sleep in the full bed, the home accommodates an additional person. There is a full bath with a shower & tub that is shared by the upstairs bedrooms. The finished basement can be accessed from inside or outside the home. The basement has a bedroom with a queen bed and small twin bunk bed over a closet. Note: the bunk bed has low clearance - if used, then the house accommodates an additional person. The basement also has a living area with a large flat screen TV, a couch and an adjacent full bathroom with shower. The basement has a covered patio with a charcoal grill and stairs leading down to the lake. With great views also comes many stairs so all guest should be able to navigate stairs and take great care to not run or fall.

The home is ideal for 6-7 adults and 3-4 children, for a total of 10 people. Small pets considered, but there is only a small grass area near the water and the property is not fenced. Our small dog visits but we keep her on a leash when she is outside.

Check-in is anytime after 4 pm on Saturdays and check-out is by 11 am on Saturdays. One week minimum stay required. Separate rental contract required. If you have a specific request, please ask and we will do our best to accommodate!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family was able to get together for a week. The house is stocked very well. The swimming area is great for kids or just to float on our adult rafts. It rained one afternoon and we sat on the bottom level, under the upper deck and played games. Would recommend this rental to everyone!

Comfort & Convenience at the Lake

  • 5 of 5

So sad to leave! We booked this house for 1 week to be on a "waterski" lake and host a family reunion and would do it again without hesitation. If airlines weren't so difficult, we would have stayed longer. I grew up in this area and it was really great to be back for fun & family.

The owner is very quick to respond and very easy to work with. Property description is accurate, but cannot reflect how perfect the house and location are. Rebecca & Joe even met us for check-in to give tour and information. The damage deposit was returned within days of check-out.

- Dog allowed with approval which is one reason I chose this home

- Outdoor living spaces and landscaping are beautiful with plenty of space & furniture to gather, or seek a quiet space

- New dock with swim steps where we tied up our 2 boats and swam w/water shoes

- Bathroom on every floor

- 2 bedrooms up, 1 down with another living room makes it easy to give some private space when multiple couples traveling together

- Multiple nice touches: lots of hangers in the closets, portable fans, extra linens, air bed, games, books, pretty décor, nice bedding & towels, TV's with cable, lots of necessities you might forget to bring were provided to start us off...

- The lake: Crooked Lake is one of the top lakes in northern Indiana and the house is located on the 1st basin with a view of 2nd basin too, on the "shadyside" of the lake so house stays comfortable, short boat drive to marina to fill the gas tank, sunsets/sunrises are incredible, swimming & boating areas, busiest on weekends & quiet on weekdays... Look at water depth maps as there are other shallow areas that are not marked with buoys

- Environmentally conscious with recycling and "Method" non toxic soaps/cleaners- I love this stuff & use it at home too

- Convenient to grocery & restaurants, close to Interstate 69 & Pokagon State Park

- Gate at top of outdoor stairs to close them off to smaller kids or pets, stair lights inside and outside

- Nice kitchen appliances, lots of dishes & items to make preparing meals easy

Thank you Rebecca & Joe for your hospitality and attention to detail.

Lovely, comfortable space, beautiful view, great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two week stay on Crooked Lake. The home is very well stocked and furnished in a lovely, comfortable, relaxed way that makes everyone feel at home. Great kitchen! Communication with the owners was excellent throughout the experience and they were so respectful of our privacy when coming to mow and check on a couple things on the property. We had seven adults for some of our stay and everyone had plenty of room. Good space for eating together and socializing but also plenty of places for folks to read or sun bathe away from the group. We didn't have the most ideal weather during part of our stay, but the lovely indoors and screened-in porch made even the rainy days feel like vacation. There are lots of steps on this property, but the owners are so up-front about that, no one should be surprised. We all navigated without any trouble, even one of our family members with a bit of a mobility issue. Those steps lead to wonderful views of this lake -- just enough activity to keep you interested but nothing that's bothersome or intrusive. The neighborhood was quiet and neighbors were friendly. Added plus that the Captain's Cabin restaurant is a very short walk down the road. Great place for a family vacation!
