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, kayaks, and skiers go by as well as see the occasional sea plane landing for dinner at the restaurant. 2018 summer events include The Sandbar Music Festival (June 22-24, 2018), the holiday fireworks (Sunday July 1, 2018), and the July 4th 5k run/walk. *** Please note that we are only renting the home in 7 day increments with a change-over day on Saturday. ***
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.
