Property description

**Special rate for one week left in the 2016 season! Aug 13th - 20th is available! ** Many grandparents have booked the house for a complete family gathering of their children and grandchildren to share lasting memories in the house and on the lake. Local Marina's will even deliver a boat to our dock for your use for the week. A few have even hired professional photographers to take professional family pictures from the top deck and down by the water. Other renters have used the house to celebrate a 60th Birthday Party or a Girl's Getaway. Eight professional guys rented the house to enter a local fishing tournament and share some laughs together.

No fighting over bedrooms here! Nearly new, spacious, lakefront home features 3 MASTER SUITES with King Size Beds… one on each level…2 with 180 degree views of the lake from your own private turret. 6 King size beds, 1 Queen and 4 bunks. The spacious top porch, private mid-level deck, as well as the massive 65’ wide x 30’ deep lakeside patio.

Brand new kitchen on the main level with seating for everyone, and additional kitchen is located in the lower level and a third one is located in the finished garage. Two brand new grills (one propane grill on upper level and one extra large grill with a gas connection to the house outside of lower level balcony) and tons of outdoor furniture will make certain that no one goes hungry and everyone has a seat. Three steps down from the patio you’ll find crystal clear water and a firm sandy beach bottom ideal for those who like to get wet gradually, or for small children to play. For those that prefer the “quick way in” the water is 6’ deep at the end of the pier, perfect for the adult plunge on a hot day. I would suggest water shoes if you have small children playing in low water because there are a few little shells along the sandy bottom.

If exercise is your thing, take a scenic walk, jog or ride around the 5 mile lakeside bike path. There’s badmitton or bocce ball on the front lawn or simply use the fully equipped home gym, featuring a Pilates machine, Total Gym, free weights, step, balance balls and heavy bag… all of which have been strategically placed in front of a 52” flat screen TV.

After a tough day in paradise, relax and recline. Both the main and lower levels feature full kitchens, dining tables, fireplaces, big screen TV’s, and 10 seat conversation areas, each with six very comfortable recliners. Besides the master suite, the upper level has 3 additional bedrooms PLUS a 1200 sq ft BONUS room with yet another king size bed and private office. Four full bathrooms, 1 with a jetted tub and 1 with a Steam Shower for two, means there’s no waiting time if you and your guests are getting ready to head out on the town.

Open floor plan with high cathedral ceilings and walls of windows are ideal for spectacular views of the sunrise to your left and sunsets to your right. Catch a rainbow if you can. This is the house where summer dreams come true and family memories are made.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Hi! We are newly empty nesters, Maryellen & Craig Nelson, and are splitting our time between Indiana and New Jersey. In August of 2014 we purchased this beatiful home on Lake Syracuse and have decided to rent it for the months of May, June and July, August, and other dates through September and October.

Why the Owner Chose Syracuse, IN, USA:
Our dream had been to live on a lake and after looking at over 60 homes on lakes throughout Indiana, we decided on Lake Syracuse for the wonderful amenities of this home, plus it's location on the lake, as well as it's ideal access to many activities, restaurants and shopping. Also, the house was built in 2007, has a 3 car garage, and a geo-thermal system which makes it very energy-efficient. Craig and I selected the most comfortable furniture and beds for this home since we knew while we were there we would be entertaining many friends, family and football players. We have two gas grills, one on each deck, two kitchens and many fun toys to enjoy the lake experience. If you like to fish, the fishing is great right off the end of our dock. The lake has a 5-star rating from the Hookandbullet.com for it's wide variety of fish, including Northern Pike, Crappie Largemouth Bass, Redear Sunfish, Bream, Blugill, Perch, and Smallmouth Bass. Nature lovers may spot the bey of swans (over 20 in 2012) and scaytering of herons that have adopted Lake Syracuse as their home. In the immediate lake area, there are 3 public golf courses and free tennis at the local high school. Maxwelton Golf Club is right up the block, known as one of the best public courses in Northern Indiana. Other local activities include a movie theatre and bowling alley. Syracuse has a variety of local shops for art, crafts and fashions. For the more adventurous shoppers, Amish Acres, Essenhaus, and Shipshewanna are just a short drive away. Lastly, there are other great restaurants in town like the Down Under, you enter a gazebo and follow the circular staircase underground to the restaurant bar. Great family meals and pizza. If your an ND fan the owner will likely toast the Irish with you. Another great restaurant is the Sleepy Owl, known for their steaks and seafood. Friday & Saturday night is Prime Rib and Baby Back Ribs night, try the app. Lobster Mac & Cheese.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home features great views from each level. There is plenty of room to host many people comfortably (14). The lake itself is 564 acres and if you want to go for a run or bike ride it is 5 miles around the lake. Up the street from the house is Lakeside Park, which features a public swimming area, park and picnic area. It hosts the 'Music in the Park' series on six evenings in the summer. Lake Syracuse also has a fireworks display over the fourth of July holiday period. A unique thing about Lake Syracuse is that it connects to Lake Wawasee through a channel. Lake Wawasee is the largest lake in Indiana and is over 3000 acreas. If you were to drive around it I believe it is 25 miles. In between the lakes there is a great restaurant called the Channel Marker and you can pull your boat up to their dock and stop for lunch or dinner, or you can drive there by car and it's less than a mile from the house. On Lake Wawasee sunbathers and swimmers often visit the 'sand bar', which is located about 500 yards off the south shore. The sand bar is a portion of the lake (about 2 acres) where the water is only 3-4 feet deep. Since the sand bar is completely surrounded by deeper water, it is only accessible by boat. With it's sandy bottom, shallow water and centralized location, it's the perfect place to take a refreshing swim, have a picnic in your boat, or chat with the other boaters. .
