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

Indianapolis House Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 4 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.

Great For a Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
My extended family has gotten to be a bit too large to meet at my parents' house. So I found this wonderful house for all of us to get together. We all had a wonderful time and it was perfect for all ages. We really enjoyed roasting marshmallows, grilling out and paddle boating around the pond. The house was very clean, very well stocked with everything and large enough that we weren't all bumping into each other. The kitchen was enormous and it even had two refrigerators. In fact, my mom who always brings all of her own pots and pans because she doesn't ever think a kitchen will have everything she possibly needs, didn't even need her own cooking gear. The owner/manager answered the phone and was helpful when we called with a question as well. I would highly recommend this property and we will likely be returning again! Loved this place!

A wonderful place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was better than expected. The owners have thought of everything. You really don't have to bring anything but food, clothes and fishing pools. The lake was even stocked with fish so even the smallest fisherman could catch a fish. There was plenty of wood for a fire and a kitchen table big enough to seat 16. I can't imagine a better place for a family reunion. It is located just 30 min from the airport for family traveling. We will definitely be back.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely house and beautiful area. The property is very well-maintained and clean, has everything you need to have a good time, and is convenient. The house even has a handicap accessible bathroom on the main floor. The owner is very easy to work with and available if you have questions. We have been here 3 times and recommended it to friends. While we were there we enjoyed swimming, boating, fishing, playing games, roasting marshmallows in the fire ring, eating on the deck, relaxing, and enjoying having plenty of space to spread out and be together. All of us from children to grandparents had a good time.

Bonding Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our family gathered from Indianapolis, Missouri, Florida, Kansas, Alabama and South Africa! Being able to be together at this lovely place for 4 nights was refreshing and allowed us fun family time together without feeling cramped for space. We enjoyed the opportunity to walk in the woods and have fun swimming & boating on the lake. Fishing was fun but perhaps the snapping turtles got most of the fish?? The house was clean and exceptionally well supplied with all that was needed for creating wonderful meals indoors & out. We appreciated the deck with gates to keep the toddler from wandering down to the lake on his own. There were no surprises - the listing was accurate and gave us enough information to plan our trip and what we needed to bring, etc. The owner, too, was available via phone to answer questions. The whole set-up was user-friendly and well thought through to accommodate a large group's needs. I have no hesitation in recommending this house. We also had a nice outing to the Cataract Falls.

What a wonderful weekend our family had here. Everything was so nice. We enjoyed the paddle boats, the trolling boat, the floating pontoon, fire pit, pool table, enough bed rooms, kitchen, dining room table, etc. Great customer service. All described was accurate. Beautiful maintained. I would recommend this to anybody that is looking for a place for a family to get together. Thank you so much!

New Year's Eve 2013

New Year's Eve 2013
  • 5 of 5
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.
