Book now. Only a few peak summer weeks left. Special pricing for early June and late August.

New for 2017:
- Updated kitchen with new stainless steel appliances and quartz counters
- Remodeled master bath

Updated Jimmerson Lake cottage perfect for families or extended families. 2,000 square foot, 3 bedroom + den, 2.5 bath home on large 1/2 acre lot. Nice views of Jimmerson Lake with two dock spaces to access Jimmerson Lake and the entire 2,000 acre Lake James chain. The home was built in 2001 and has always been family owned. It’s been lovingly maintained, is super clean, and in great shape. Wonderful location for visiting Angola, Pokagon State Park, and the Lake James chain. Walking distance to the restaurants and bars in 'downtown Lake James', but far enough that it is quiet and private.

Comfortably sleeps 9. The master bedroom is on the main floor and features a new king bed and attached master bath with large soaker tub and separate shower. There are two large bedrooms upstairs – one with a queen bed and attached full bath and one with a queen bed and a twin bed. There is also a relatively private den with a queen size pullout sofa.

This is a true year-round home, not just a summer lake cottage. It has everything you'd expect in a real home. Well-stocked kitchen with newer appliances and all the cooking and dining utensils you should need (settings for 12 people). We supply bed linens and bath towels. You will need to provide beach towels. Two HDTVs (46" and 40") with DVD players. Washer and dryer are provided on site. Central A/C and heat. Driveway provides off-street parking for at least 4 vehicles and room for your boat trailer.

Speaking of boat trailer, this a perfect place for boaters! You have two dock spaces right in your backyard to accommodate pontoons up to about 24' and speed boats or fishing boats up to about 20'. If you don't have your own, you can rent pontoons or fishing boats down the street at 'Corner Landing'. As part of the Lake James chain, you have access to over 2,000 acres of water on 5 lakes: Lake James, Jimmerson Lake, Snow Lake, Big Otter Lake, and Little Otter Lake (the first three are all sports lakes). The Lake James chain offers great swimming at several sandy public beaches and sand bars, tubing, skiing, and of course fishing. The house is located on a channel only 3 homes from the main part of Jimmerson Lake and a 5 minute ride to Lake James.

The large 1/2 acre lot gives you plenty of space to enjoy the outdoors with a family cookout, bonfire, or lawn games. The house has a large deck, several sets of tables and chairs, a charcoal grill, and a fire pit. Wildlife frequent the area including heron, swans, ducks, turtles, and deer.

The location is quiet but still very convenient – just a few minutes from I-69 or the Indiana toll road and walking distance to downtown Lake James with its restaurants and bars (Mad Anthony Lakeview Ale House, Tom’s Donuts, Acapulco Mexican Grill, Club Paradise). It’s also just a few miles from Indiana’s best state park, Pokagon, which features beaches, hiking, and a toboggan run in the winter. Also nearby is the town of Angola with its cute downtown square, ice cream shops, mini-golf, Trine University, Fremont outlet mall, Satek Winery, Wild Winds Buffalo Preserve, and golf courses including Glendarin Hills, Zollner, and Lake James.

This is not just a summer getaway. In the fall, you will find beautiful colors, great fishing, and you can still take the boat out for one last ride. When winter rolls around, it is time to go tobogganing at Pokagon State Park. Ice fishing, sledding, and snowmobiling are also popular winter activities. Spring is a great time for fishing, hiking, and that first boat outing of the year.

Popular day trips include Auburn Cord Duesenberg Auto Museum (25 minutes), Shipshewana / Middlebury Amish country (40 minutes), Fort Wayne / Fort Wayne Zoo (45 minutes), South Bend (1 hour), Lake Michigan beaches at Indiana Dunes or Warren Dunes (1 hour 45 minutes), Lake Erie beaches at Maumee Bay State Park (1 hour 45 minutes), Sandusky / Cedar Point / Lake Erie Islands (2 hours), Detroit / Greenfield Village (2 hours), Indianapolis (2.5 hours), and Chicago (3 hours).

This is a family home, not a party house. If you're looking for a place to party at the lake, please look elsewhere. If you're looking for a nice home that has been shown a lot of love and attention, this is the place for you!

Our goal is to do everything we can to ensure you have a great vacation. We provide a folder with our recommendations for local activities and dining to get you started and we're happy to answer any further questions. Just call or email. Thanks for looking!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

Why the Owner Chose Angola, IN, USA:
We live in Holland, Michigan now, but grew up in Chicago (Erik) and Northwest Ohio (Tina). So when we were looking for a location for a vacation home, Angola was the perfect spot - 2 hours from Holland, 3 hours from Chicago, and right next to family in Northwest Ohio. Oh, and there just so happens to be a wonderful lake right in the backyard!!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we're at the home, a typical day goes like this: Get up and take a short walk to Tom's Donuts for some of the best donuts you'll ever taste. Take the boat out for a quick spin - maybe tube a little. Back home for lunch and to pack up for an afternoon on the lake. Head to a sand bar on Lake James or Jimmerson Lake where we let our 10 year old daughter splash around while we hang out with friends and family. Back home to clean up and then off to dinner at a local restaurant or perhaps just stay home and grill something on the charcoal grill. Finish the day with a bonfire or movie.
