About the Property

1BR Lakefront Vacation Rental Angola, Indiana USA

Cottage 2 is a beautiful, cozy cottage which looks out onto a beautiful lake. The architecture gives the feeling of a warm country home and the cottage is fully equipped. You can enjoy cable TV or the VCR. Or you can simply relax in the beautiful cozy front room with beautiful lake views.
The kitchen is fully furnished with a stove, microwave, a full-size refrigerator, and dishes and utensils. Enjoy the attached deck for lounging and for gobbling up your freshly caught fish.... The deck is shared between the two cottages
If you want to combine a comfortable, fully-furnished cottage [including linens and towels], and a beautiful setting with an opportunity to enjoy a magnificent array of outdoor activities, the Jimmerson Retreat is the location you've been searching for.
To start, the Chain of Lakes offers outstanding fishing. The lakes have an incredible number of panfish, as well as bass and catfish -- some in the lunker size just waiting for the perfect angler and presentation.

You can enjoy the local sandy beaches for sunning or swimming. Or you can enjoy the water from your boat, water skis or jet skis.
In addition to the water fun, there are a great number of wonderful hiking trails within minutes from the cottages. From some of these trails you can observe not only the flora, but also the local fauna. You can also explore the area on horseback. Children can enjoy pony rides, and children of all ages can join the weekend fun of a hayride. You can bike along trails or beautiful country back roads, viewing gardens and farms and traditional Amish homesteads.
For those wanting a different flavor of fun, you can enjoy Jellystone Park or the Fun Spot Amusement Park and Zoo. You can enjoy miniature golf with friends or family. Bowling is also nearby.
If golfing is your interest, you have a variety of courses only minutes away. If you want tennis, there are several public courts available. Racquetball is available at a local club.

If you want to spend your time just tuning up your body, you can pump iron or use ergodynamic machines in a local athletic club.
If your inclinations are less physically vigorous but desirous of new adventures, take time to visit the Buffalo Preserve. You can also visit an award winning winery with excellent red and white wines available for tasting and purchase. If cars are your interest, you may enjoy two local speedways. You could also take a quick 30-minute drive and enjoy the Auburn, Cord, Duesenberg Museum which houses classic vintage automobiles from the early 1900's up to WW II era vehicles. Or visit the NATMUS Museum which houses vehicles from the post war years. Or visit another flavor of museum --- the Hoosier Air Museum (operated by the Hoosier Warbirds) at the DeKalb County Airport which features aircraft from throughout the history of aviation.
Autumn offers an exceptional time to view the changing of the leaves on your hiking trail or biking route.

You can enjoy Notre Dame football and take the quick commute back to your lakeside retreat.
Wintertime offers the challenge of cross-country skiing at Pokagon State Park. If you want an exhilarating downhill challenge, try tobogganing. Or you can explore the hiking trails in the snow cover on snowshoes.
Whatever the season, Jimmerson Retreat affords you the ideal opportunity for true Re-creation--- allowing you the time and perfect setting to reflect, to recharge, and to refresh yourself.
