lovely shady yard perfect to play croquet,or horseshoes which we provide and to sit to roast hot dogs

Excellent communication with owners!

  • 5 of 5

This stay was for our annual girls weekend that we have been doing for 15 years. House was clean and Grandpa Bill left everything for the river accessible. We spent most of our time outside, enjoying the deck and river. The floats that were left for us worked good, but the current in the river kept us from enjoying the paddle boat. Excellent trip, would defiantly go back.

Great affordable getaway

  • 4 of 5

On the quiet side of a Lake Shafer island with boat docking. Very good space, laid out nicely. A bit older facility as are most in the area. Convenient to Indiana Beach, county fairs and shopping.

awesome!! :)

  • 5 of 5

I just recently stayed at this house !! It was perfect!! It was very spacious, it had a fire pit, a grill, and the river was basically in the backyard!! We fished all night!!! The house was very clean and we'll maintained!! There were stores and activities close by. The owners were extremely nice, helpful, and very welcoming!! They showed us everything in the house and they even blew some rafts up so we could float in the river!! There were plenty of seats and our group had a wonderful time.. I can't say anything bad about this property at all. And next year we plan to stay there again! :)

Nice and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

The Trailer is well maintaned. It's really nice to walk out the back door and fish or swim off the dock. Only minor inconviences are the well water, and it's a little far to the lake. If you have your own boat however you are all set. We would stay again though it is really nice for a quiet get away.
