The owners have been married for 38 years and have 5 children and 6 grandchildren. They help run a family farm and are big sports fans.

Hubert Nolen purchased this house in 2005

The owners liked this property and decided to buy it, so they could enjoy it with their large family. It has brought many fun memories with family and friends over the past 9 years!

This property is on a quiet stretch of Lake Shafer, and the owners have enjoyed drinking coffee and reading on the dock. Through the years, the fishing has been good. The owners built the fire pit, and their family has enjoyed evening campfires.

Great family spot!

  • 5 of 5
My entire family just met up here from all over the country...Indiana, Michigan, Georgia, and Washington. I wasn't sure what to expect...but we were thrilled with what we found!!!
It was perfect for our 9 adults and 10 kids. There were places to sleep for everyone and the rooms were tucked away so late sleepers weren't wakened by early risers. The yard was awesome for us to play games and sports. Lots of seating for meals. We loved our stay here. The one downside is that the lake is more like a river and not really swimmable off the property. There is quite a current so kids (and adults) would be swept down stream. The kids were a little bummed about that. But we ventured out to the city pool and were pleasantly surprised again. Clean pool and facility. Pool had a diving board which our kids loved. This was a great retreat spot for our large group. And the owners were super helpful, accommodating, and kind!

The only other downside was that the water out of the faucet was pretty stinky so we found we had to purchase all our own water to drink. But I am sure there is nothing they can do about that.

Loved this place! Highly recommend!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. Lake Shafer is a reservoir built on the Tippecanoe River. Unfortunately, during the spring and early summer if there is heavy rain, the current is stronger than normal. The current calms down when the storms pass. There are three public access sites in the area to Lake Shafer.
For the water in the house, we installed a Nuvo H20 water filtering system, and it has helped. But we recommend using drinking water from the refrigerator's filtered water system.

Family Vacation

  • 2 of 5
My entire family came here for our 1st family reunion vacation. We were not sure what to expect. There was 17 adults and 7 children. The house itself was nice however the owner called 1 hour before we left to inform us that we could not swim in front of the property. Prior to our vacation, there was a picture of kids swimming infront of the property (which is now not on the pictures of the house) and we were told we could swim. Also on one of the reviews it was stated that the faucet was stinky and the owner replied that a Nuvo H20 water filtering system was installed. 5 days of smelling and bathing in water that smelled like rotten eggs was hard. The hot tub was cloudy when we got there and some light bulbs were burnt out. I tried to text and call the owner on several occasions and he never called back. Maybe he should consider putting a property manager on duty to answer any calls or questions. Not a place to stay if you love the water and swimming.

There was plenty of space for everyone and the house was equipped with my kitchen items that you would need.

Owner's Response: We take all reviews seriously, whether positive or negative, it is our goal to please.
When booking the guest, we fully expected the guest to be able to enjoy the beach area (100 yards from our home). Unfortunately, the access site is not available to our guests. There are three public access sites available in the area. Also, Monticello has a very nice public swimming pool.
Upon writing the previous review, we truly expected the filtering system to take care of the metal smell in the water. Unfortunately, this was not the solution. After this review we did further research and we realized it was our water heater ' s rod collecting the metal sediment causing the odor. We have purchased a new water heater and removed the inner rod which is recommended if you have a residential well. We have had no further complaints since installing.
The hot tub is a new amenity for our guests. We are now working alongside a spa maintenance professional to regulate our chemicals weekly.
For whatever reason we have no record of receiving texts or calls from our guest and for this we are sorry. We provide two contact numbers for our guests. We do have a maintenance man available and in the past, we have responded timely to maintenance calls.
Our goal is for all our guests to have a pleasant and memorable family experience.

A great place to relax for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful home for me and my family to relax and unplug from the grind of daily life! My favorite part of this property was that I was able to sit outside in the shade and enjoy a book while looking out over the water. There were plenty of rooms for everyone to have their own space so that we didn't feel like we were on top of one another, but at the same time we enjoyed the large kitchen and living area on the main floor where we were able to spend time talking and connecting. I look forward to coming back in the future!

Great Location with Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place to take your family to enjoy the lake, Indiana Beach and get some much needed R&R! Lots of space for large gatherings, deck overlooking the water and grassy space for games by the water. Wal-Mart and restaurants close by.

Great for a family!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here on a family trip to Indiana Beach! The house was in perfect condition and everything was nice and clean. It is big enough to hold our whole family and not be on top of each other. We loved the deck that overlooks the water and the kids enjoyed playing in the backyard. We would recommend this house without question!
