Property description

Our home is nestled among 50-60 huge trees on 3-4 acres of private land. As you enjoy your coffee in the morning on the monstrous 20 by 25 deck sitting enjoying the lake and all the wildlife you'll know you arrived. Unlike so many lake homes that have no privacy and your neighbors are just feet away you'll find you can't see our neighbors just the beauty of Lake James! Large home, over 2300 sq feet, 2 screened in decks for the evenings and all the yard you could want for sun bathing, volleyball, grass sledding or just relaxing in the many seating areas across the property. Other ideas and guest favorites:
- Bring your boat and fishing gear. Skiing, tubing and sunbathing are all available during your stay. Make sure you swing by the the lake's sandbar and grab lunch from the floating aqua grill.
- 4-5 miles of biking
-1200 Acre Pokagon State Park. Enjoy the huge lodge on Lake James, Potawatomi Inn. 10 miles of hiking trails,
horseback riding, winter activities!


Summer calendar items for you and your family: See the Lake James website for 2011 and 2012 activities! lakejames.org/julyfourth.html


-June on Lake James has Fort Wayne's Philharmonic playing a Pop's concert from Pokagon Beach while you listen from your boat! Take a tour of Satek Winery or Buffalo ranch.

-July- Lake James Fireworks and Family boat flotilla! Bring your boat and enter the parade of 40-50 boats.

-All summer enjoy Lake James Yacht Club racing series. All races start at 10:00am on First basin. Race MC Scow, M-20 Scows. Use the link above to get more details.

- The Fall brings the colors and some of the best boating and canoeing James has to offer. Very quiet sunny days and cozy fires at night.

-Enjoy Pokagon all year long. 1200 acres, 10 miles of hiking and bike trails wind through the park. Winter only speeds up the fun, enjoy speeds of 35mph on the frozen toboggan track and cross country skiing. Of course snowmobiling is perfect when we get snow!

- January- join the Polar Bear Club!

Northern Indiana has over 100 lakes for the boating, fishing, skiing enthusiast. Lake James is Indiana's 2nd largest fresh water lake, with over 1300 acres of water. The lake is connected to 4 other lakes all accessible by boat for additional exploring. While you're on the lake stop by the two marina's for fuel, ice and other boating items. Later in the day enjoy any of the four restaurants on the lake you can boat to and eat! For the fishermen in your group stop by Bledsoe's for all your fishing supplies, fuel, food, misc live bait!! Ask them for a map of the lake and they will help to show you the hot spots to fish. We are very lucky to have a state park located on the Lake James. Pokagon is a huge park with horseback riding, hiking, biking trails. The lodge is a must see as you take a step back into the past and have breakfast, lunch or dinner in the Inn. Check out Satec Winery 4 miles, a buffalo preserve 3m, outlet malls 5 miles, & Yogi's waterslide plus.

Other Activities: Satek Winery, water slide, eat at the sandbar on 1st basin- burger boat floats next to 300+ boats soaking in the sun! See last page for event list.

Golf: Please google Angola and Fremont Indiana. We have 4 within 4-5 miles.
