At the Jimmerson Retreat you'll find a beautiful, fully furnished, executive home which will make you feel like you have returned to your own vacation retreat.
The great room is accented by a vaulted ceiling. Its glass doors and large high-level panes allow an unobstructed view of the lake and the beautiful, large deck. There are open pickled wood accents around the horseshoe-shaped balcony.
The architecture of the great room, entry foyer, kitchen, and balcony area create an expansive, open feeling. The floor is knotty pine throughout the great room and the upstairs bedrooms. There are ceiling-level Casablanca fans to cool, or provide air circulation for the great room and the larger bedrooms. There is a complete entertainment center in the great room, with a cable-television, a VCR, and DVD player, plus a stereo, a CD player, and wireless Internet access. We also have a fax machine available for our guests
The gourmet kitchen has a separate range/oven, as well as a separate oven/broiler/microwave and another range-top in the kitchen island. There is a separate wet bar and bar refrigerator for entertaining.
There are three bedrooms with two bathrooms upstairs. Downstairs there is one large bedroom, two smaller bedrooms, and two bathrooms. All four larger bedrooms have their own television.
You may wish to dock your boat or jet skis at our own private dock. Enjoy the excellent fishing that the lake affords. Or play in the sand and swim at the nearby swimming beach. Or simply relax as you lounge on the patio furniture of your deck and enjoy the beauty and serenity of the lake -- and the comforting melody of the waterfall, within ear's reach.
For cooler weather you'll enjoy the large wood-burning stove in the central area of the great room. You'll also enjoy the gas fireplace accenting the north wall.
Beautiful fall and winter lake views await you. If you are visiting South Bend, you can enjoy a beautiful commute to and from Notre Dame football and then relax in a setting which has all the comforts of home.
In addition to the retreat house, there are two separate, fully furnished and equipped, one-bedroom cottages which each sleep four people. These are available for year-round rental. These are all on the same property. Guests who wish to have more privacy will want to rent the Retreat house and both cottages so that they can ensure privacy for their own gathering
We are in the heart of Northeastern Indiana Lakes Area... Near Pokagon State Park and Amish Country. We have great fishing and boating, many golf courses, an outlet mall, a buffalo preserve, a winery, and several museums nearby. The College Football Hall of Fame and Notre Dame University are only 80 minutes away. Our county's website may be accessed at http://www.lakes101.org/. Please note that the map in this website does not give the proper location. We are lakefront right at the very end of Jimmerson Lake... Immediately before the Nevada Mills Dam
