CHARMING, SPACIOUS HOUSE ON SECLUDED, SEVEN ACRE PRIVATE LAKE-WOODLAND SETTING

Indianapolis House Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 14+

A nice country retreat consisting of 40+ wooded acres looking out on a 7 acre private lake located 40 miles west of Indianapolis off Interstate 70 . Enjoy boating, swimming and great fishing-the lake is stocked with bass and blue gill. Miles of hiking trails venture in the adjoining woods of Dogwood Springs Forest Preserve that are especially beautiful in the fall. Large, fully equipped kitchen with seating for 20 includes industrial oven/range. Living room views the lake with comfortable seating and HD TV. A large deck off the kitchen and living room is equipped with barbecue and two patio tables. Or use the fire pit barbecue area near the lake. The cabin room has the fireplace and an assortment of books for reading. The game room is in the lower level having a television, pool table, kitchenette and walk out patio. The Dogwood Springs Guesthouse is a destination location suitable for family reunions & group getaways.

The house is recently remodeled, fully furnished and stocked with everything you need except food. We will do all we can to make your stay an enjoyable and memorable experience. Please use caution because you are in a wilderness area and use of the lakes is at your own risk. We recommend you bring sunscreen, insect repellent and your own fishing gear. Also, please use caution, there is heavy truck traffic on HWY 243 from the local quarries. Thank you for your interest.

New Year's Eve 2013

We had an amazing time in this well-stocked, guest-friendly home. With five families, we never felt cramped or in each others' way. The living spaces were well positioned, and sleeping quarters perfect for a large group! While it was very cold, we were able to enjoy a bit of hiking & some beautiful snowy scapes. All were impressed with the cleanliness and homey touches, including well-marked storage in the kitchen to help make meal prep a smooth endeavor. Our only complaint was a poor Wi-Fi connection, as a couple of us brought some minor work along based on the list of amenities. A short jaunt to McDonald's solved the problem, and we were back to enjoying a wonderful place to ring in the new year with a great group of friends! Our hope is to return again in summer and perhaps for New Year's Eve 2014! Thanks for such personal, quick responses to our questions, and for flexibility with our check-out. Would DEFINITELY recommend this property!
Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. I apologize for the slow internet. Unfortunately, because of the remote location of the Guesthouse our best internet options are Hughesnet satellite which is not high speed.

Outstanding spot for a large family gathering

We gathered at Dogwood Cottage for Thanksgiving with several of our children and grandchildren. All of enjoyed the trails in the woods, the deer sightings as well as the beautiful skim of ice on the lake. The house comes very well equipped with ample dishes and supplies for cooking...A big Viking stove, 2 fridges, a new chef knife! We especially liked the big table seating 16 in the kitchen...great for Thanksgiving. Everyone had beds and blankets. The library was cozy with the gas fireplace and a number of books were enjoyed. The pool table was a big hit for all ages as well as ample tv's for the football games. It was easy to find and great even in winter. We did not go anywhere other than hiking and just enjoyed being together. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return for another visit in the future.

Words are too few to express this perfect house! Our family voted and it was unanimous to come again next year. Everyone was so happy with cleanliness, amenities, etc. Grandkids just want to catch more fish and swing, slide and go for more paddle boat rides. We even went to Cataract Falls. Beautiful country!
Thank you!

Great Weekend

We rented this place for an annual get together of a group of guys who come in from all over the country, and it turned out to be perfect. The location is great - only about an hour from Indy, where most of us live, and also only about a half an hour from the Indy airport for the folks who flew in. Secluded, very private location with great decks, a dock and a firepit, as well as a lake perfect for swimming. It was the little things that really made this place great - lots of dishes and nice appliances, plenty of beds (of 13, only 2 or 3 folks had to sleep on couches) and lots of out door lighting. This house is great for a trip like this and also a family vacation.

Our Stay

This home was absolutely wonderful!!! It was beyond a normal vacation house, it had all the little added touches to make it special and feel like a home away from home. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone. It was secluded for privacy and had lots of room outdoors to do many different activities like hiking, boating, fishing, and swimming all without leaving the property! The state park was so close, it was a great find, we did not know it was there till we got there. I think we will be back again!!!
