Morocco, IN 47963

(219) 285-2704 where there are numerous quality hunting and fishing opportunities: 9,956 acres, which includes 1,200 acres of open water, marshes and flooded crop land. Feels like Wisconsin. Similar to Paw Paw Lake or Twin Sister's Lake in Michigan. Nearest recreational lake south of Chicago, IL. Cedar lake attracts families from all over, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, Tennessee ,New York, California, and Canada. This is the perfect spot for a reunion of friends, family or just a very nice relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city .


Cedar Lake was settled by pioneers in the mid-19th century and by 1870, the Cedar Lake Post Office was established, giving the area its name. After the Monon Railroad came to the lake's western shore in 1882, many new residents flocked to the area along with tourists who saw the lake as a resort destination. From the late 19th century to the early 20th century, Cedar Lake was a popular place for Chicagoan's looking for a retreat from the city. The lake had over 50 hotels at the time and several pavilions and ballrooms that brought many well-known bands to entertain the visitors.

A key element in Cedar Lake's coming of age can be traced to Dean White. The Merrillville entrepreneur grew up in south Lake County and spent plenty of time at Cedar Lake.

With investments across the United States and reaching as far away as China, he remembered the days of old at Cedar Lake, deciding he would invest there to help the community.

His first investment came with construction of bright colored condominiums along the lake. It provided a positive image and set the tone for future development.

About Cathy Atchison

I grew up around the area and live close by. When I married , we decided to rent out our small home near Cedar Lake as we did not need our two homes. My husband and I still occasionally use the rental home over the summer and enjoy fishing and relaxing at the neighborhood park.

Cathy Atchison purchased this house in 2000

Why Cathy Atchison chose Indiana

The home is located on a side street and very quiet and safe neighborhood. The nearby neighborhood private pier and park are within walking distance, only 1/2 block away. The park has a small blacktop covered area with picnic tables, and a playground for the little ones. So many things to do, even in the winter. Boating, swimming, and fishing in the summer and cross country skiing in the winter is only 3 miles away at Lemon Lake state park.

Happily satisfied!

  • 4 of 5

I, along with my two sisters, traveled from TN to IN to visit our aunt. We were lucky to have found this property less than a mile from our aunts house. Everything we needed was right there, all we had to do was grocery shop. We even hosted a dinner for other family. The house provided a nice place for us to visit and relax. Everyone that came complemented the house and said how much they liked it. Cathy was very attentive to our needs. We highly recommend this property and hope that is available the next time we make the trip.

Older house but lots of amenities

  • 4 of 5

We had 6 adults, one child and a dog. I loved the room we had at the house it was spacious. There is a fenced in back yard for dogs! The owner is very nice and easy to get a hold of. It is a central location to the town. It was nice to have large tv with cable and wifi. We had a very nice stay and go to the area a lot now and will

Be returning.

Lake house getaway

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Cedar lake. The house is walking distance to the lake with a little beach, park and pier, and we really enjoyed all the movie channels on the TV. The WiFi was fast, and the house was centrally located to the rest of our family. It was a lot roomier than a hotel since we were staying about 3 weeks, and the dog had a backyard which was a nice feature.
