This stunning modern 4-bedroom home with massive outdoor deck, Jacuzzi bathtub, large bedrooms, and a large screened-in room is your perfect lakeside getaway. Near to Pokagon State Park & Trine University, this updated home is situated on Golden Lake, a quiet fishing & kayaking lake on Pigeon Creek. Push off the shore on one of our three kayaks and explore the 120 acres of Golden Lake or just relax lakeside with a good book. This is one of those places you'll return to again and again.
Perfect for families or as a central meeting spot for three couples, six adults is the perfect group size for this home that features a large open living space on the main floor with eating areas and a very popular puzzle table. Two bedrooms (one queen and one with two twin beds) are on the main floor with a bathroom with a shower.
The upstairs features the super large master bedroom (King bed) and a second large bedroom (queen bed). They are separated by a massive bathroom with a huge Jacuzzi bathtub. Each upstairs bedroom opens to a living area with two couches and a 55" smart TV with DISH satellite and DVD player provided. The house sits on a "double lot," so you will have a larger yard (for a lake) and a relaxing fire pit area (we can provide firewood for a fee and at least a 7-day notice).
Please note the “no pet” policy and limit to eight people on the property at ANY time. There are no exceptions made to these rules as there are reasons these are in place for this property.
The house is well-located for you to explore nearby Pokagon State Park, attend a festival or concert in Angola, Shipshewana, or Fort Wayne, or to visit the many antique stores in Angola. It is a stellar summer vacation place for families who like quiet lakes. The quietest times of the year, Fall and Winter, are the best as Golden Lake transforms into an amazing "getaway" for study, writing, retreats for small teams/groups, and families of Trine University students.
At its core, this is a single-story 1960s fishing cottage that has been remodeled three times and modernized again in 2019. The air conditioning and heating will keep you in control of your comfort when inside while you stay connected to via the fast and free WiFi.
Golden Lake is situated in a rural farm community and close to I-69, which makes for easy access but also often means that sometimes you can hear the interstate during your stay. We provide a guidebook for you in both digital and paper formats for your convenience. We let you know of the best things to do in the area though you'll likely just want to stay 'hidden away' at the Sanctuary.
Parking. There is free parking for up to four vehicles. Do not park across the street as that is owned by a different family.
ABOUT GOLDEN LAKE
Since Golden Lake is a no-wake "fishing" lake (can't go over 10 mph), it is perfect for swimming, floating, kayaking, canoeing, and fishing. The lake water is tested monthly and regularly tests as healthier than that of the big "sports" lakes nearby. NOTE: Though no jet ski's or speed boats are allowed on Golden Lake, you can easily trailer them over to nearby Crooked Lake or James Lake and ski all day. There is public access to both of these lakes.
The fishing on Golden Lake is good. Walleye, bass, and bluegill are the main species caught, but there are a couple of schools of perch around and some people do catch the occasional pike. The best bluegill fishing is from mid-July to mid-August. We do have some fishing poles that you can use but remind you that you must be licensed and abide by the Indiana state rules for fishing.
For your time on the lake, we have a canoe, three kayaks, and two paddle-boards and enough life preservers for you and your family. If you have your own boat, you're welcome to launch it at the nearby launch and tie it up to our dock. Please note that the lake rules are strictly observed and guests at our house agree to abide when renting.
Pontoons. There is a local provider who can bring you a pontoon and put it at our dock. This is NOT a service we provide and all liability and responsibility are yours as you work directly with them. Visit pontoonrental and then dot com.
This is our special lake house and we hope you like it. The neighbors around in both directions (and across the lake) are long-time residents of the lake, friends of ours, and care deeply about Golden Lake. We hope you love your time as much as we do when we're there.
