Beautiful family retreat

Serendipity was the perfect home for our getaway with our parents, and our 11 and 13 year old sons. The house had everything we needed and more. We all loved the layout, and the comfortable furniture. We enjoyed cooking, fishing, kayaking, playing board games, napping, singing by the campfire, and relaxing in the hot tub. We also rented a pontoon boat from Corey Lake Marina and did some modest tubing on the lake. The walk up from the lake was a little tough for my in-laws (78 and 83), but manageable.
The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. Sturgis and Burr Oak provided for some field trips for those who wanted to go into town.
I would love to return here with the same family group, or with a group of friends. The views of the lake are lovely. We had a place to gather, or a place to be alone for awhile, and felt at home.
Thanks, Shelly and Ronnie, for sharing your lake retreat!

Another Excellent Getaway!!!!!!

Thank you so much to the owners of this lovely home. We are a group of 6 - 8 women who get together each year to "fill our buckets" with friendship and fun. This is the perfect destination. The view is beautiful and peaceful. There are so many spaces to enjoy: the deck, the lake, the sunroom, the kitchen...We hope to return again next year (our 4th year at this house). One more important detail: We have always been extremely impressed with the condition and cleanliness of the property.

A Really Relaxing Setting for Your Getaway

We like to get together with our three sons and their spouses/sig others periodically for some unstructured family time away from our busy lives, and we'd all recommend this lakefront home. The house itself was very nice, and its setting and the outside amenities exceeded our expectations. The lake is small and doesn't have a sand bottom, but it is very, very picturesque. It's hard to portray how nice it is as the day changes in just a photograph -- mist in the morning, high sun on the water, a big storm, and the quiet of the evening, especially when there is a pretty sunset but even when there isn't. We swam, kayaked down a little channel following a family of swans, and took the rowboat and paddleboat out. The hot tub was nice too. There were places to gather with others, and places to be alone. We recommend not bothering to leave, just decompress right there! The towns around were not appealing to us, all the better to enjoy this home. The owner was very responsive and the home was comfortable and well equipped. This was a winner for all of us.

Serendipity was great! Six of us spent a relaxing, fun-filled time on the lake. The house was lovely and very clean. Everything that we needed was there, from kitchen equipment to outdoor entertainment. The owners were responsive to our questions and very welcoming and easy to work with. We are already planning a trip back next year.

3 of my friends and I spent 3 nights at this lovely home. It was so relaxing and fun, we felt right at home. The beds were very comfortable and the house beautifully decorated. We enjoyed being on the lake, saw swans and beautiful sun rises and sun sets. We didn't cook, except for breakfast, but did enjoy bringing dinner home and eating it on the sun porch overlooking the lake. We did spend quite a bit in Shipshewana, IN, which was only a half hour away. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
