Overview

About the property

Located on the banks of North Twin Lake in Howe, Indiana (Near Shipshewana)

Located on the banks of North Twin Lake in Howe, Indiana (LaGrange County Indiana 12.5 miles from Shipshewana, Indiana), this cozy lake cottage situated on a farm will bring you peace and quite. Ideal for families looking to get-a-way and spend time on the lake, go fishing, visit county parks, taking in local festivals and the Shipshewana Auction and Flea market.

This cottage is also perfect for families or groups looking to take advantage of the fishing available on the Pigeon River Fish and Wildlife Area and the 70 freshwater lakes in LaGrange County not to mention the lakes and rivers just to the north in Southern Michigan.

Perfect location for motorcyclists to stage rides from to discover the beauty of Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan on rural roads.

In the fall the farm cottage can also be a great base camp for hunters who are hunting in the area such as the Pigeon River Fish and Wildlife area (No hunting is permitted on this land.)

Very clean and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

the cabin was very clean and the owners very friendly. We fished off the dock and out of the boat they provided. the deck was relaxing to sit on in the morning and evening. We were able to see a doe and her two fawns out in the yard almost every day. I was very quiet and relaxing. There was a fully stocked kitchen, and we cooked our own meals. The only thing I wish they had was a DVD player to watch movies in the evening, although we did venture to the movie theater in Stergis, MI (4 miles away) It was quaint and quite enjoyable!

Peace, Beauty, Serenity in a Lovely Country Setting

  • 5 of 5

Spending a long weekend in a little piece of Heaven on Earth. Owners are nearby and eager to ensure comfort and convenience. House is fully equipped for meal prep, but good restaurants are two miles away. We rent many VRBOs, and this one is A+.
