About owner/property manager

I grew up on Lake Manitou and now live in Southern California. I have fond memories of my youth and the times I spent on Lake Manitou so purchased this home in 2005 as a way of staying connected to the Lake.

Why owner/property manager chose Indiana

While my parents home was on the east side of the lake and was beautiful, I chose the west side of the lake and this home in particular for several reasons. The sun rises on the lake side of the house so sitting out on the patio or in the screened porch area with a cup of coffee watching the sun rise and the birds and wildlife awaken is spectacular. We also don't have the glare of the sun over the lake at then end of the day since the lake side of the house faces east, so whether you enjoy sunrise or sunset, it's equally enjoyable! Since we are off the beaten path at the end of Wolf's Point Drive, there is little traffic so strolling Wolf's Point is quiet and pleasant. Plus, we are situated close to the head of the lake which offers abundant opportunity to observe wildlife.

What makes this house unique

Our property features a 3 car garage so-- lots of storage space. We use the 3rd stall for storage so you will have the use of 2 stalls for your vehicles and/or equipment. The property also features plenty of places to park cars given the large driveway serving the 3 car garage and the additional parking area near the entrance to the gated side yard. Parking at lake properties is often limited--but not here!

Wonderful Vacation Stay

  • 5 of 5

Great home with plenty of room on the lake. It's cozy and spacious and very relaxing.

There is enough room from everyone to gather and enough space for people to retreat when you need some space. A perfect mix!

It was a very nice property in a nice community.

  • 5 of 5

It was a very nice property for our needs. We needed a place for our family of 10 to stay to attend a funeral. This allowed us to stay together and was able to comfortably accommodate all of us. It was very clean, the beds were very comfortable and the linens and towels were good as well. We were able to take advantage of the laundry room and ability to iron out dress clothes. We appreciated the opportunity to stay there.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review and glad that the house worked out and was a good place for your family to gather at what was likely a difficult time. So sorry that my roofer showed up early but from what he said you were gone all day that day so hopefully that was not a problem. Please return to stay with us again if the occasion calls for you to visit family or you just want to gather and enjoy the Lake! We do have a pontoon boat that you can rent for a summer stay if you like! Thanks again, Colleen

Wonderful home on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed out stay at this property. Working with the property owner was a pleasure. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The bedroom with 2 bunk beds was perfect for our grandsons--ages 5 to 10. And the master bedrooms were lovely. The public beach on the other side of the lake was small, but clean and a great place for the kids to swim.

Home Sweet Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 11 had an awesome time while staying on Lake Manitou. The house was roomy and comfortable. The lake area is serene, and a neighbor was nearby to assist with questions as needed. Our stay included a trip to the Fair Oaks Farm where we saw newborn piglets and calves. We enjoyed the Streamliner and Jarrety's restaurants, and Flirt is a lovely boutique. We can't wait to stay here again!

Our home is located on beautiful Lake Manitou. We face the lake and are located on quiet Wolf's Point Drive which is a great area for walking or bike riding without traffic. Access to the scenic 42 mile Nickel Plate bike path is very close to the house. Or just bike or walk the scenic country roads which are also easily accessible from the house. Explore the head of the lake for incredible bird watching and wildflowers. You can kayak or go tubing on the lake although we do not have a kayak or a tube--you would need to bring your own.
