BEAUTY AND THE BEACH LAKE HOME - COTTAGE SHIPSHEWANA

Shipshewana House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Your vacation is our priority. Our lake home is located on the shores of beautiful North Twin Lake. With a spacious open floor plan and an entire wall of windows facing the water you are never too far away from a gorgeous view. Our home is beautifully decorated and has everything you need to enjoy your time away. This location borders a DNR preserve and is secluded and private, offering plenty of interaction with nature and wildlife. Our house features 90 feet of lakefront providing for a fishermans delight and family friendly setting. There also is a 'fire pit' area for a late night campfire under the stars. While private we are just a short drive to Shipshewana and all of the wonderful attractions that it has to offer. Our prayers are that you also will 'be led beside still waters' to our lovely lake home.

My wife and I are both teachers and always enjoy hosting guests throughout the year. I teach architectural design and my wife is a retired special education teacher. We have children and grandchildren who love to visit us and enjoy the fun and beauty of the lake.

Mickey purchased this house in 2006

We currently live on South Twin Lake and are planning on both retiring in this beautiful place. We purchased this additional lake property in 2007 and decided to develop it into a 'perfect' lake house. We added all the things that we love in a house: wood floors, tile foyers, stone fireplace, oak cabinets, and a spacious floor plan that opens up to the lake on 3 sides.

Our beautiful home offers privacy and easy access to restaurants,shopping and the Toll Road. We love to add personal touches to your stay to make it the best vacation ever. We offer a 'FAMILY FUN' package special to enjoy your vacation even more! The special includes:

* use of 3 boats: a canoe, deluxe paddle boat, and a row boat.

* firewood for the outdoor fire pit

* 50 of our favorite movies for the 42' flat screen television

* local coupons

* fishing supplies

A Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect way to spend a weekend. Mickey and Becky, the owners, have covered every base imaginable. Not only is the location perfect, but the amenities and HOSPITALITY are even better. So much fun using the kayak, pedal boat, row boats, building sand castles, and fishing off the dock. The home was beautiful and I loved all of the personal touches. Our stay was just what we needed!

Great time away with family

  • 5 of 5
What a terrific find! I was in charge of trying to get a place to coordinate our vacation days. We just loved this place! Clean, plenty of room, wonderful lake views, close to shopping in Shipshewanna flea market and a variety of places to eat. Had the best time together...mixed age group, but all related. Sipping wine and having a bonfire in the evenings was something we looked forward to everyday. Had two family dogs with us, and they had a good time too. Owners welcoming and helpful.Will definitely return.

A perfect vacation from start to finish.....Becky and Mickey welcomed us with fresh baked treats upon our arrival to their lovely lake home, which is a quiet, tranquil, off the beaten path treasure. The grounds are well cared for and spacious, the cottage is spotlessly clean, with a very open floor plan, well equipped for all of our needs and we felt at home immediately. The pellet burning stove warmed the entire house on a few of the nights that were cool and the AC kept things comfortable when needed. The dishwasher and washer and dryer were a plus also! Our kids and grand-kids enjoyed the paddle-boat, fishing boat and kayak..lake is very clean and fishing was good and neighbors friendly. We spent our days outside on the ample decks and enjoyed the otter, geese and occasional deer in the rear yard. The peace and quiet was awesome!
Found many treasures at the famous Shipshe Flea Market, enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Essenhaus Restaurant and Jo-Jo's pretzels were a great treat. Mickey and Becky made sure our stay was perfect and it was. Wonderful memories made for our family and we look forward to a return stay at their "Beauty and the Beach" lake home.

Lovely Lake Home

  • 5 of 5
After a week in Mrytle Beach we arrived at this beautiful lake home for 4 days of rest and relaxation. It was so quiet and peaceful we definitely got the rest and relaxation we wanted. The home is very nicely decorated and very open to the lake. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely rent this home again. The owners were also very nice and easy to work with.

A Restful Autumn Weekend

  • 5 of 5
At this time of year, my husband and I enjoyed having the lake to ourselves, sharing it with only the swans and ducks. The house is so clean and bright, with beautiful views of the lake. Even though it was cool, we bundled up and used the paddle boat on a sunny afternoon. We were impressed with how clean the lake is. All of our needs were well anticipated by the owners. We were comfortable on the lake and had great fun getting out to visit nearby sites.

Late Season Retreat

  • 5 of 5
I returned today from a few days at the house owned by Mickey and Becky and can say it was the best way to get away from it all to enjoy some peace and relaxation. They have provided everything you could possibly need which makes even a short stay easy and stress-free. Even though it is late in the season the weather was perfect for sitting on the porch in the morning with a cup of coffee while watching the swans dive for their breakfast. We took the paddle boat out for a ride and didn't mind the cool breeze while we paddled along the shore to one end of the lake. My sister has been ill while waiting for an organ transplant and this was the perfect environment for her to take her mind off her illness and reflect on her future after she gets well. We didn't even wait to get home before we made our reservations next year,hopefully with my sisters clean bill of health. Thank you Mickey and Becky for your hospitality. We will be looking forward to next year!
