About the property

Waterfront home with 5 bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 16

Enjoy this spacious and very clean, 2100-square-foot home on Palmer Lake. Palmer Lake is a 444-acre, all-sport, family-oriented lake. There is 100 feet of sandy-bottom lake frontage and a large side yard for many activities. Two private docks are conveniently located on the property for fishing or docking your boat. The lake is great for boating, water skiing, jet skiing, fishing, ice fishing, and much more.

The home is great for families looking to reunite or a couple looking to escape the city for a long weekend. It has two sitting areas overlooking the lake, one for family gatherings and one for privacy. A game room is great for the kids. Five private bedrooms sleep 16 people comfortably. The large kitchen and eating area overlook the lake and open out to a lakefront sitting area!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Best "total package" we've encountered! Nice house, perfect setting (close to lake, quiet street, nice neighbors), very nice lake.

Your internet picture and advertisement do not do your property justice! We were quite pleasantly surprised when we arrived and wouldn't hesitate to rent this property again. Thanks so much for sharing it with us!

Awesome sunsets!

  • 4 of 5

This house worked out fine for our group of 10 adults. The kitchen is very well supplied with every kind of pot/pan/knives/grilling implements. Fully stocked. There was even some cleaning supplies in the kitchen/bathrooms. The house is a little dated, could use an update, new furniture, carpet, and some paint, but all in all it worked out fine. The lake side of the house has nice views from the dining room and kitchen. The sunsets are amazing every evening, it was a highlight. Mark was quick to return my call when we needed him. The Village Market in Colon is a very nice supermarket with everything you could need and Dollar General is next door. Curly's is a great spot for dinner and the M & M Grill is wonderful for breakfast. Had a wonderful time.

Great Lake House Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at the Palmer Lake House. The accommodations were everything we could of expected . It was great to have our Four grandchildren with us and really enjoyed the quiet lake. The kids really like taking the paddle boat out on the lake. Definitely will be considered next year if the dates were available. Highly recommend this lake house to other looking for a peaceful lake experience . Thanks

Perfect lake house for a large family

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough wonderful things about pur stay at the Palmer Lake House. The house was very clean and well stocked with towels, bedding and kitchen essentials. 2 bathrooms, 5 bedrooms and 3 common living areas was wonderful. Luckily the weather was gorgeous, but if it wasn't, there would have been plenty of room for everyone in the house.

The sandy bottom lake front they advertised is absolutely true. We had a GREAT time in the lake. And Mark was nice enough to put fishing tips in the house guide! Plenty of dock space and frontage to fish from, and we caught quite a bit!

This was the first time we rented this house, and I have already requested another weekend next year. Kids (and adults as well) were sad to leave.

I would DEFINITELY recommend this beautiful house to anyone!

Spacious clean family cottage

  • 3 of 5

Nice, clean casual cottage which suited our large family well. The exterior is a bit ragged. The kitchen is well equipped. We loved the paddle boat and dock. Dutch Creek Farm near Shipshewana was a big hit with everyone.

Great Family Friendly Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 8 (5 adults and 3 kids) stayed at the lake house and had a wonderful time. The place was even better than the pictures. It had plenty of room and was set-up great. The game room was jam packed with about every boardgame imaginable, the kids loved watching DVDs and playing games in there during the one stormy morning. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could possibly need. The sandy lake bottom outside the house was awesome, as was the dock for the kids to jump off of. We even headed down to the public beach a few minutes away too. Mark was great to work with. He answered all of my questions ahead of time as to what was available at the house. The lake house guide that Mark and Peggy provided was very comprehensive of the house, the town, the history, things to do, etc.

We would highly recommend this place to our friends and family and consider staying here again.
