Why Todd Bunge chose Simonton Lake

The owners felt this was the perfect home for family gatherings! Roomy enough for everyone with a convenient location not easily found in the Michiana Area. Close to Amish Country, Notre Dame and South Bend this location is the perfect jumping off point for many adventures.

What makes this House unique

Large home on two floors offers plenty of room for large families without feeling on top of each other. Summertime offers fishing, swimming and nightly sunsets from the pier. The screened in porch is great for morning coffee or late night card games.

Usually it's a bucket list trip. And I have to honestly say that all 6 of us were in all of this location the house is gorgeous, very clean has all the amenities sits on a lake convenient to everything just absolutely amazing. The few conversations I had with the owners and the information they gave me was spot-on. I highly recommend this property. The Neighbors are wonderful people and make you feel at home as well. Once again I'd like to thank Todd and his wife for this beautiful home and the opportunity they gave us to stay there. Thank you so much !!!!

                                                          We rented this property for two nights during Notre Dame football season. The house was fantastic for accommodating a larger group with plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms and a large common spaces. It was a great combination of exciting Notre Dame football and peaceful lake experience. Will rent again for future games!!

                                                          Superb trip to see the UGA Dawgs play Notre Dame

                                                          Todd and Tricia - our entire gang would like to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation for your allowing us to stay and enjoy your wonderful house on Simonton Lake. Your house was clean, well stocked and very roomy to accommodate our large group. With the use of the kitchen and large grill, we prepared great meals for dinner both Thursday and Friday nights after spending the daytime visiting South Bend and touring the Notre Dame campus. Your hospitality and the courteousness of the ushers and guides at ND really made our trip one for the ages. Thanks so much again, take care, and Go Dawgs!

                                                          Thanks for being great guests!

                                                          Todd, Tricia, Mark and Judy

                                                          This large home is comfortable and spacious for large family functions. Our oldest son got married nearby and we had over 15 out of staters stay here together.

                                                          So much nicer than all being split up in hotel rooms. Very clean and well stocked.

                                                          The house wad clean, spacious, with very comfortable furniture

                                                          THE PERFECT RENTAL

                                                          Maureen V.Isle of Palms SC

                                                          Grandparents, children and grandchildren celebrated a special birthday weekend in this large, lovely, well equipped, clean and happy home. It was a pleasure to deal with Todd and Tricia. They are the best at answering questions and helping to plan things. The location was terrific with easy access, right off the Toll Road. Restaurants, grocers, drug stores, pizza places (all things you may need) were all close. We even found a pontoon rental. It is late in the season so no swimming but it was not missed...because so many other ways to entertain all ages are at your fingertips. Don't hesitate. Reserve a time now. Your family will love their time at the Simonton Lakeside Family Retreat, as did ours. 👍
