About Mike or Linda

This is a picture of Mike and Linda with our 4 beautiful Grandaughter's.

We bought this place as a cottage and renovated it into a beautiful 2 br custom built ranch home. After we retired we lived here full time for a while but decided to move back to our hometown . We did'nt want to sell our little piece of heaven so we kept it and want to share it. This way we can have the best of both worlds. Thanks for checking us out we would love to hear from you. Mike and Linda.

Mike or Linda purchased this house in 2002

Why Mike or Linda chose Indiana

We came to the area from S.E. Mich . For years the Shipshe area was our favorite vacation destination with all the things to do and see. We cant get over some of the bargains you come across while shopping. Still today we never grow tired of visiting and cant wait for the next trip to Shipshe. One of the greatest aspects of Nestled Inn is that everything is at ground level ! There are no menacing steps to climb to get to the Home or the lake which make the home easy accessible and great for a wheelchair or people with knee problems...believe me I know :)

What makes this house unique

The Lake and access is just steps right out the front door and the view is amazing. South Twin is not only a beautiful blue lake, it is one of Indiana's cleanest. You can fish and swim from the dock, pontoon boat or off the land. We have 2 Kayaks and a 12 ft rowboat included with your stay so you can explore the beauties that South Twin Lake has to offer or try you luck at fishing. Watch for a Soaring Eagle swooping down to catch a fish. Or a Otter that loves to swim along Kayak as though he wants to play. From the quiet serene back yard patio you can view a abundance of birds that visit our feeders. Pileated Wood Peckers, Baltamore Orioles, blue birds, and a host of unique birds. The Finches are so tame they let you sit right there while they feed. Humming birds are frequent visitors with 4 or 5 at a time fighting over the feeders. Fish Spieces generally caught are Bluegill, Perch, Crappie and Bass. The Indiana State Record Smallmouth Bass was caught...........You guessed it. South Twin Lake is a private lake, it also is one of Indiana's cleanest. South Twin Lake has no public access and is a 10 mph lake where no jet skis or speed boats are allowed, this makes the lake less congested and much safer. . It is extremely clean and spring fed . Its 115 acres around and 55 ft deep in the middle. During the summer months the lake very warm around 85 degrees.

Beautiful property! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful 2 days at this home. Home is very clean and accommodating. Perfect location for visiting Shipshewana. There were 5 adults in our party, plenty of space. Didnt get to enjoy the outdoor property due to weather. Would love to return when warmer. We definitely would like to return and rent this property again. Mike and Linda thank you so much for sharing your property!!

We are so pleased you mentioned the cleanliness of our home because that is exactly what we strive for, we know very well what is is like to check into a place that does not meet our expectations.

Thank you again for going out of your way and giving us a 5 star.....Mike n Linda

Really enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Nestled Inn was a great place for a cousins weekend. The weather was rainy but because of the covered porch we were still able to sit outside and watch the storm roll in over the lake and enjoy the outdoors. It was a great location. Close drive to everything. We enjoyed it very much !

squeaky clean with a nice lake view

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was absolutely spotless.We enjoyed our stay very much spending time on the "big" front porch enjoying the view & the humming birds. There was action at the back yard feeders also. Spent a lot of time in Shipshewana & riding around the Amish country.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for you review of our property. We are happy your 5 star stay was every thing you expected and more. We got a chuckle when we read in the house diary and you said " This is the cleanest place I gave ever rented" Linda and Liz does an amazing job cleaning and pays close attention to details. I am glad you mentioned the secluded peaceful rear yard patio with all the bird activity. We can sit there for hours and watch all the beautiful birds come in and feed. Thanks again we hope some day you will come back for a visit. Mike n Linda

What A Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

Love this rental and will definitely be back! The view of the lake is gorgeous and the home is well cared for and very inviting. We had three ladies for a girl's outing and found our stay very relaxing! Everything was very clean and Mike & Linda were great to work with on short notice. We loved the surrounding area and found so much to do (Shipshewana, Blue Gate Theater, Das Dutchman Essenhaus, Rise & Roll Bakery, etc.). You can't go wrong with this property!
