Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Getting ready for the 2016 season, over the winter I'm updating some of the flooring and painting. I have been coming to this property since 1965, last year we celebrated the 50th year. Very nice design, two homes right on the lake front with a nice yard and seawall secluded between the two. This place was designed for summer fun. I stay in the smaller home and I'm here most of the summer. I have two or three large family gatherings here each summer, this place is setup perfectly for family get togethers, lots of fun activities or just relaxing. Note that effective with the 2016 season I will begin managing a second lake rental. This additional property is also listed on VRBO, #796263. I'm working closely with the owner on preparing this property's debut to the lake rental market. I encourage you to take a look at the listing, note that this luxury home is located within a half mile of Indiana Beach. I'm very excited about adding this property as an option and may add others in the future, please feel free to contact me at 312-802-7076 with questions about either property.

Why the Owner Chose Monticello, IN, USA:
This property seems ideal for family vacations (reunions, holidays), group getaway, golf groups, sports events, fishing trip (note boat launch mentioned below), lots of possibilities. This lake home started out as one good sized cottage with a small cottage located on the lakefront. Has had many updates over the years including attaching two cottages into one unit. The lakefront bedroom can serve as an isolated unit, has kitchen, bathroom and door.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is a cement boat ramp on this property, very convenient for launching a boat. Large 8' x 16' floating pier with 120' cement sea wall. Indoor and Outdoor Movies, Indoor theatre with ceiling mounted projector, 6 foot pull down projection screen very nice surround sound system and three sofas. Outdoor theatre has been very popular this year, very cool experience sitting around the fire pit watching movies. Outdoor movies does require good weather conditions and projector set up, 100 inch by 160 inch projection screen is up all season. Both projectors can connect to the internet for NetFlix etc... and will play DVDs as well. You might want to consider bringing your laptop or tablet which can in most cases can be readily input into the projector. Also note very nice speaker set up in the lake yard for the outdoor movies or just listening to music. Four outdoor speakers surrounding the firepit provide a very unique listening experience. Set up in a manner that allows audio input from your phone, ipod or computer. For music I typically pull up Spotify from my phone or laptop computer, IPod works well too. Popcorn maker, makes great movie style popcorn. Firewood included, I keep a good supply of firewood on hand. I know what a hassle it is to find firewood while on vacation, Some folks bring their own which is always appreciated but don't worry I will always have plenty of firewood. Note that this is a year round rental with reduced rates during the off season. Scenic here all year long, after all you are located right on the water. Works well for holiday gatherings (lots of cooking equipment), sporting events (theatre room), winter getaway, etc...
