Indiana House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 13-16)

The perfect blend of fun and relaxation in this spacious and modern 3400 sq ft. home with breathtaking views of Lake Shafer.

From the built-in window seats, drink in the quiet morning as the lake awakens to a new fun-filled day. Sip coffee, brewed hot in the modern granite kitchen complete with every amenity as you spot blue heron, swans or even a bald eagle, as the fish jump hungrily for their morning meal.

The family begins to stir, refreshed from the 5 comfortable, plush bedrooms:

A first floor master suite w/ lake view, queen bed, jacuzzi tub and jetted shower

2 mini-suites w/ lake views, queen beds and full baths that connect with the

2 themed rooms

The Safari Room with twin bed and full futon

The Clubhouse Room with 4 twin bunk beds large enough to sleep teenagers/adults

Water fun abounds from your dock complete with boat lift and jet-ski lifts. Sunbathe on the 2-story partly shaded dock while the kids enjoy the waterslide and a shallow 2-4 ft. deep protected swimming area behind the dock. You won't miss out on any of the fun with great main lake views from the home,dock, balcony and patio. Waterlogged? Boat or drive the 5 miles to Indiana Beach Amusement Park or the beautiful Tippecanoe Country Club public golf course. Visit the Whyte Horse Winery or load up the family and enjoy the latest movies at Monticello's Lake Shore Drive-In Theatre!

After all this sun and fun, your family has built up a large appetite. Enjoy a gas barbeque or firepit dinner together while seated at the large dining table, breakfast bar, window seats and 2 outdoor tables.

The Shafer Queen paddle wheel cruise boat goes by as the lake settles down. So you, too, settle down with a good book in the hammock or maybe it's the rocking chairs that beckon you to relax as the sun sets on this beautiful vacation at Lake Shafer.

Trying to find a weekend that fits everyone's schedule? Host your family and guests throughout an entire month. For the price of 2 weeks at most comparable rental properties, delight in a little bit of the season at Lake Shafer!

About Nole and Kassie Schaefer

My husband and I travel the world for a living but have made our home in Indiana. Some of our fondest childhood memories include lake fun with our family and friends. We wanted to provide our children with those special times and only hope your family will enjoy the lake house also.

Nole and Kassie Schaefer purchased this house in 2011

Why Nole and Kassie Schaefer chose Indiana

We have rented vacation homes in the Lake Shafer area for a few years now. The location is extremely convenient to both the Indianapolis and Chicago areas. Monticello provides activities other than just the lake that our family enjoys; Indiana Beach Amusement Park, golfing, biking, and hiking. Also, Purdue University is close by. GO BOILERS!

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property for a girls weekend away and had a wonderful time! The open layout of the kitchen, dining room, and living room made it ideal to socialize and keep a large group together. We stayed in the winter, but the roads were easy to navigate and we had no problems finding the house. The owners were easy to reach and the house was well stocked with pots/pans/dishes. Overall a great weekend away!

Our Stay on Lake Shafer

  • 5 of 5

From the moment that we arrived we knew we had found the perfect spot on Lake Shafer to have our family vacation. The pictures that we had seen prior to arrive could not have depicted a more accurate vision of what the property looked like. We were met by one of the owners who showed us around the home and the property. When he left we knew where everything was located that we might need and how all the appliances and electronics worked. The rental home was so spacious. It gave everyone a space to go to when we wanted some quiet time, and the large living room overlooking the lake and the basement gave us great space to gather and have fun. The property was spotless and in great condition upon our arrival.

The dock was quite large and allowed us to have fun diving and jumping into the lake. We did not have a boat but the dock was certainly large enough to dock a boat if needed.

Played a round of golf at the Tippecanoe C.C., got to go over to Indiana Beach Resort, and had a dinner at the Riverside restaurant. Three enjoyable activities all within 15 minutes drive time.

I do want to mention the following. We had a small problem with the well pump. But one call to the owners and they had someone right out to fix the problem for us and we never missed a beat in enjoying our vacation. I would not hesitate to rent from them again. They are truly concerned about the people who rent from them and their desire is for everyone to have a wonderful time.

I cannot recommend more highly this rental property or the owners of the property. They were a great combination and gave us a family reunion that we will remember for many years to come.

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvelous time. We were impressed with the bedroom setup, since we had two families with young children. Each family had one side of the upstairs, which allowed them to have their own bathroom and separate bedroom from the children. The house was very quiet, too - nice thick walls.

Great Relaxing Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this lakeside home. It is a beautifully decorated spacious and well maintained property... both inside and out. There is a wonderful light and airy feeling to the home, and a lot of attention has been given to providing everything needed for a wonderful and comfortable stay. The lake frontage/lot would provide for any age range. There are both deep and shallow areas. The decking is generous and spacious and provides areas of both sun and shade. It is a little cove of heaven... right here on Lake Shafer!

Great family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

The entire family loved the lake house and thought it was perfect for a group of 12. You can have everyone together and then there is also private space too! Grandchildren thought the double deck and slide was awesome. The kitchen and outdoor grill made for fun meals together. The double washers and dryers were a big help!

Family Vacation - 3 Generations

  • 5 of 5

Our family (3 generations) rented this house and we had a wonderful vacation. The house was well equipped and fully met our expectations as descibed on the website. The access and views to the lake were wonderful. We had a terrific time fishing and swimming from the dock. My wife caught several fish and it was her first time fishing. The owner was great to work with and had the property in great condition for our arrival We will very likely rent this property again.
