About James Allen

I am a boating and water junky. I love to go to the lake and spend the day ski or tube. I work in retail so my time is very limited. I love having a place to take the family and do all of our favorite things.

James Allen purchased this house in 2007

Why James Allen chose Monticello

We bough this lake house with our large family in mind. this place has all that we could ever want out of a lake house and space for the kids to roam. we have been vacationing in this area for about the last 15 years. Its a great place to go with the family, Indiana Beach amusement park, water sports, dairy farms, go carts, golf, mini golf, fruit picking, winery, out door movies, fireworks during summer at the park what else could you ask for to have a great vacation.

What makes this house unique

Home located on the water. So if you get hot jump on in. Min. from Indiana Beach amusement park, boat and wave runner rentals can be accessed from the water or a short drive. Golf can also be accessed from the water.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the house twice this year and both times have been very relaxing and conformable. The owner was great to work with and very helpful and accommodating.

Excellent accommodations

  • 4 of 5

Lovely inside and out. We happened to come on a weekend in August that turned chilly, so the fireplace on the upper deck was especially nice to have. Lots of family visiting and the seating was abundant. The inside space with numerous couches and large kitchen adjoining to upper deck worked well for several family collective meals.

Only thing we wished we'd had access to was a washer and dryer. Would stay again!

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you enjoyed the home. Hopefully you saw some really nice sunsets. Sorry to hear you were unhappy with the boat arrangement. The home is in a small Bay with limited affects from storms. Every time we visit our home, we tie our own boat off against the sea wall in the same place. We have never had an issue with our boat. Although I do recommend using bumpers. Thanks for staying in our home, hope to have you back. James and Amy

The property was wonderful. Plenty of space to entertain and the house had all you could need!

  • 3 of 5

The house was great, however the beds were very uncomfortable. I think a new mattress in each room is in order. I would definitely rent again IF the mattress situation was addressed.

Honesty the only issue! Great place!!

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the lake house. It was a very quiet and peaceful area. The upgrades on the interior of the house were really nice. Spacious with lots of room to roam. The multiple decks were nice. We used the outdoor fireplace every night and enjoyed watching nightfall from the lake wall dock.
