Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Angola

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Comfortably Sleeps 7-9)

RESERVE NOW FOR FALL. STILL A FEW WEEKS AND WEEKENDS AVAILABLE.

Great Jimmerson Lake home perfect for families or extended families. 2000 square foot, 3 bedroom + den, 2.5 bath home on large 1/2 acre lot. Nice views of Jimmerson Lake with your own dock space to access Jimmerson Lake and the entire 2000 acre Lake James chain. The home was built in 2001 and has always been family owned. It’s been lovingly maintained, is super clean, and in great shape. Wonderful location for visiting Angola, Pokagon State Park, and the Lake James chain. Walking distance to the restarants and bars in 'downtown Lake James', but far enough that it is quiet and private.

Comfortably sleeps 9. The master bedroom is on the main floor and features a brand new king bed and attached master bath with large soaker tub and separate shower. There are two large bedrooms upstairs – one with a queen bed and attached full bath and one with a queen bed and a twin bed. There is also a relatively private den with a queen size pullout sofa.

This is a true year-round home, not just a summer lake cottage. It has everything you'd expect in a real home. Well-stocked kitchen with newer appliances and all the cooking and dining utensils you'll need (settings for 12 people). We supply bed linens and bath towels. You will need to provide beach towels. Two 32” HDTVs with DVD players. Washer and dryer are provided on site. Central A/C and heat. Large driveway provides off-street parking for at least 4 vehicles and room for your boat trailer.

Speaking of boat trailer, this a perfect place for boaters! You have a dock space right in your backyard to accomodate pontoons up to about 24' and speed boats or fishing boats up to about 20'. If you don't have your own, you can rent pontoons or fishing boats right down the street at 'Corner Landing'. As part of the Lake James chain, you have access to over 2000 acres of water on 5 lakes: Lake James, Jimmerson Lake, Snow Lake, Big Otter Lake, and Little Otter Lake (the first three are ski lakes). The Lake James chain offers great swimming at several sandy public beaches and sand bars, tubing, skiing, and of course fishing. The house is located on a nice channel only 3 homes from the main part of Jimmerson Lake and less than a 5 minute ride to Lake James.

The large 1/2 acre lot gives you plenty of space to enjoy the outdoors with a family cookout, bonfire, or lawn games. The house has a large deck, several sets of tables and chairs, a charcoal grill, and a fire pit. Wildlife frequent the area including heron, swans, ducks, turtles, and deer.

The location is quiet but still very convenient – just a few minutes from I-69 or the Indiana toll road and walking distance to downtown Lake James with its restaurants and bars (Mad Anthony Lakeview Ale House, Tom’s Donuts, Acapulco Mexican Grill, Club Paradise). It’s also just a few miles from Indiana’s best state park – Pokagon which features beaches, hiking, and a toboggan run in the winter. Also nearby is the town of Angola with its cute downtown square, ice cream shops, mini-golf, Trine University, Fremont outlet mall, Satek Winery, Wild Winds Buffalo Preserve, and golf courses including Glendarin Hills, Zollner, and Lake James.

This is not just a summer getaway. In the fall, you will find beautiful colors, great fishing, and you can still take the boat out for one last ride. When winter rolls around, it is time to go tobogganing at Pokagon State Park. Ice fishing, sledding, and snowmobiling are also popular winter activities. Spring is a great time for fishing, hiking, and that first boat run of the year.

Popular day trips include Auburn Cord Duesenberg Auto Museum (25 minutes), Shipshewana / Middlebury Amish country (40 minutes), Fort Wayne / Fort Wayne Zoo (45 minutes), South Bend (1 hour), Lake Michigan beaches at Indiana Dunes or Warren Dunes (1 hour 45 minutes), Lake Erie beaches at Maumee Bay State Park (1 hour 45 minutes), Sandusky / Cedar Point / Lake Erie Islands (2 hours), Detroit / Greenfield Village (2 hours), Indianapolis (2.5 hours), and Chicago (3 hours).

This is a family home, not a party house. If you're looking for a place to party at the lake, please look elsewhere. If you're looking for a nice home that has been shown a lot of love and attention, this is the place for you!

Our goal is to do everything we can to ensure you have a great vacation. We provide a folder with our recommendations for local activities and dining to get you started and we're happy to answer any further questions. Just call or email. Thanks for looking!

Why The Owner chose Angola

We live in Holland, Michigan now, but grew up in Chicago (Erik) and Northwest Ohio (Tina) and still have family in those areas. So when we were looking for a location for a second home, Angola was the perfect spot - 2 hours from Holland, 3 hours from Chicago, and right next to Northwest Ohio. Oh, and there just so happens to be a great lake right in the backyard!!!

What makes this house unique

When we're at the home, a typical day goes like this:

Get up and take a short walk to Tom's Donuts for some of the best donuts you'll ever taste.

Take the boat out for a quick spin - maybe tube a little.

Back home for lunch and to pack up for an afternoon on the lake.

Head to a sand bar on Lake James or Jimmerson Lake where we let our 7 year old daughter splash around while we hang out with friends and family.

Back home to clean up and then off to dinner at a local restaurant or perhaps just stay home and grill something on the charcoal grill.

Finish the day with a bonfire or movie.

Very nice

The house was easy to relax in. Nice accommodations, it had everything we needed. It was also close to several local restaurants and an easy drive to Angola.

What a great house in a great town...

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay was just perfect. The house is comfy and warm and has great resources to make your stay fantastic. Tina was great to deal with and very quick at getting back to me with any questions we had. The view from the back deck and patio is amazing.

Family Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I are like so many families with adult children...no time and they have moved away with their careers. This spacious and spotlessly clean and comfortable home on the lake, was the perfect backdrop for a wonderful, memory making experience for all of us. It is much easier for us to get away in the winter and we enjoy the snow that Angola seems to always have. We were able to cook full meals, enjoy space to play cards, board games, and jigsaw puzzles. There are 2 TV's so the sports nuts could watch one and one was available for games, or movies. The beds were comfortable, supplied with ample linens and towels for the baths and kitchen as well. Location is close to Pokagon, shopping and restaurants. It was just really a carefree week for us and we all enjoyed the time with each other in a truly relaxing atmosphere.

Relaxing and spacious home away from home!

  • 5 out of 5
The pictures are accurate but don't reflect the peaceful, relaxing atmosphere this home provides. We had a wonderful vacation with our children and infant granddaughters. The home is well appointed and well maintained. We had Tasty's pizza one night and the obligatory breakfast of Tom's donuts one morning, but otherwise cooked at the home and found everything we needed for meals varying the range from a seafood boil to a night around the fire complete with s'mores. Close by we enjoyed kayak rentals, fishing, outlet shopping and a day at the beach and visit to Pokagon State Park. Groceries and other necessities are minutes away at WalMart or Meijer.
In addition, the owners communicated well leading up to the rental, provided contact numbers in case of emergency during our stay (even though they were on vacation themselves) and after the rental with a swift return of our deposit. The owners were polite and professional and we will consider this home as our first choice for accommodations if we visit the area again. We have already recommended to two of our friends and will continue to do so based upon our great experience.
