About Amelia Eilers
My husband and I have lived all over the world and when we saw this property and its location, we were immediately sold. I am an Interior Designer, and because we bought the unit while it was still under construction, I was able to specify the types of floors, cabinets, countertops and appliances we wanted and decided to upgrade everything. We love sharing it with our many appreciative renters! When we are in residence, our 4 pound Yorkie loves to run laps around the pool enclosure for exercise!
Amelia Eilers purchased this condo in 2006
Why Amelia Eilers chose La Porte
We were looking for a condo on the water and propertries on Lake Michigan were a bit out of our price range. So, we looked around and found these amazing condos on Pine Lake in LaPorte, IN. Great little community near Michigan City, New Buffalo, and South Bend. Convenient access to I-94 and only 1 1/4 hrs. to Chicago! The fact that there are 3 golf courses within 7 minutes of the condo is definitely a plus for my husband!
What makes this condo unique
We enjoy the small lakefront park adjacent to the condos which has a barbeque area and fishing pier. Some great restaurants (i.e T-Bones Pier 11 - ask for John, the owner) and bars (i.e. Third Base - ask for Kent or Angie, the owners) are just a 5 minute walk away. There is a terrific little cigar shop right around the corner across from the beautiful, park-like cemetary with its enormous trees where we love to go strolling with our dog.
Guestbook comments from the manager
Thank you for sharing your home with us. A couple of friends joined in for 2 days. It was a little cool on the lake, but the fishing was good. The heated pool was very enjoyable. By the way, the blender works great and loved the glasses! We can't wait to come back. Next time we will stay 2 weeks! LaPorte is a real cute little town and we had fun eating downtown at Enzo's. Thanks for the tip! "Third Base" is close for cocktails and the burgers were killer. Kent & Angie say "Hi!" The stairwell could use a nightlight ... or we could drink less ... Ha! See you next year!
