Great location, friendly neighbors and great owner/managers made this stay wonderful. House was very clean, beds were comfortable and the house was decorated beautifully. Fully equipped kitchen and all the amenities you could want. Would love to come back!
Great location and house was perfect for what we needed. Enjoyed our stay
We really enjoyed our stay. The property is beautiful and the house is very clean.
This property was just the perfect place for our girls trip. The house is very clean and well equipped with everything you need! Definitely is a place one should check out and stay at. Thanks to Brett the owner for a great time we had at her home.
Super clean home on the water with a nice lawn and dock. The house was great and we hope to return. There is a nice long dock where we put our pontoon. (Be careful when launching as there is a big drop off at the launch). They provided some wood for the Firepit, nice kitchen wear and plenty of towels. Bring your own water and maybe some fishing poles! Great hosts and the house is wonderful
Our group had a fantastic time. The home was great with plenty of room and right on the water. The large back yard offered a place for games or to just hang out. While there was access to a canoe, we brought our own kayaks and bass boat to use. We did use the paddle boat which is offered with the home. Overall, everyone had a great time!
We were so happy with the accommodations. The home was bright and cheery. We loved that we had plenty of room to spread out and still be together. A wonderful atmosphere for our annual outing. Will definitely return.
We greatly enjoyed our stay. All in our party felt the house was even nicer than described or evident in pictures. Although the weather did not cooperate for us, we still had an excellent time and want to return, it would be a great place to visit for all ages. We would like to bring our kids in the summer, its spacious and special enough for all occasions. Beautiful views and space to do whatever you are planning to do.
Great hosts and property
Everything about this home is great, very comfortable, beautiful attention to detail. We will definately return. The lake is beautiful, neighbors were friendly. We didnt want to leave and already making plans to return
Location was great. Plenty of yard space to play outside. Use of dock for pontoon boat and had fun with paddle boat that was available for use. House was very open concept with plenty of play room inside. Very clean. Thanks for letting us visit your vacation home.
We had an easy time getting our reservation confirmed and checking in. We were amazed at the detail and presentation of the property. We loved our stay, met the owner and caretakers, all were so friendly and helpful! Very clean, neat along with a well stocked kitchen! Loved the amazing lake area, thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!
good size for the 6 of us. Clean and everyone had a great time.
We were very comfortable and had everything we needed. It was so relaxing!
Every detail in this home was charming. We had a relaxing stay. The kitchen is full with EVERYTHING you need. Right down to spices. Bathrooms have it all except your own shampoo. Games/movies included. Top of the line. Loved it.
This was our second visit and were very pleased with all the amenities and cleanliness of this homeaway . Had it not been for the odor in the water, we would give it a 5 star rating. Thank you to the owners for being readily available if we had any issues. Will consider returning again next year .
Very friendly people & owner
This property was more than we expected. Plenty of comfortable space for our group. All of the essentials needed for an effortless stay. Would recamed this property.
The Stephen’s Lake House was the perfect getaway to spend some quality time with our mother. Thank you Brett!!
Our family of 8 enjoyed our 5 days at this Lake Pleasant home. My two sons, their wives and toddlers loved it. We appreciated the ample room and sleeping areas. The sun room was great for meals on windy days. It feels like you're outside. Our family enjoyed fishing, skiing, tubing, canoeing, kayaking and the evening campfires. The weather was everything you'd expect in Northern Indiana, but we made the best of it.
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Steffan family lake home. It was well stocked with everything we needed to be comfortable. It’s beautifully decorated and the yard out to the water is lovely. We plan to stay there again next year.
The home is very clean, well equipped with everything you need. Bring your personnel stuff and enjoy. When we first arrived I couldn't believe how much nicer and bigger the house is compared to the pictures on the web site. We had a large group staying here and we wore all very comfortable with plenty of space, never once felt crowded. The neighbors to the right are very friendly and helpful. The lake itself is nice, plenty of little hidding spots great for fishing. The owners are wonderful to work with very helpful.
As always with VRBO’s it’s in the details. But first let me say I’d stay there again. The corner lot is fantastic and spacious. With many cabins around you do not feel cramped at all. Really well done. This place did not have many of the staple items I’ve experienced most other VRBO’s provide. Salt/pepper/foil/ziplocs/correct coffe filters/small bar soap/etc. Cookware left a lot to be desired especially for the cost of cookware these days. Brutally scratched Teflon skillets. And the expectation for cleaning up behind your stay is more comprehensive than everywhere I’ve stayed. Add an extra hour or so to your depart schedule. But still, high quality experience and host made it very easy to book. The easiest ever, actually. Wish I could give 4.5 stars.
This is quite an amazing rental. The house is beautiful, please take your shoes off at the door. I can't say enough about this property. The neighbors were all friendly, right down to the black cat w/white paws who came over every morning for pets. The bed was more comfortable than my own. The dock is nice and sturdy, great for mooring our boat. No luck at fishing, but it was still beautiful scenery. The kitchen is fantastic. The bathroom of the main living area has a walk-in shower w/some unique tiles. We tend to rent 2 or 3 properties per year, with no repeats. This property is definitely at the top of our list with a possible return visit. Again perfect spot for a ladies get-away.
My sisters and I totally enjoyed our stay! It had everything we could possibly need. Beautifully maintained, very spacious. Not one complaint about sleeping accommodations .Will definitely go again. The landlords made us feel right at home. Very attentive to any little issues.
The house was above and beyond my expectations. Not only was the house spacious and beautiful it also had all the comforts of home. The yard was very large and well kept. The lake was very nice and the area had alot to offer. The owner is easy to get ahold of and was very accommodating. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone. We had no complaints at all other then the weekend went way to fast.
We enjoyed our stay. The property is thoughtfully stocked with kitchenware, towels, blankets and items that make the stay cozy. We fished, grilled, had a bonfire, enjoyed movies and puzzles. We cooked all meals on the property and had the tools we needed. Over all, it was a great experience. I would recommend this to others as a place to stay.
Spent New Year's Eve & Day and thoroughly enjoyed it! The house is clean and quaint and has everything you need to eat in and hang out. We just wish there'd been more snow! ;)
It was a very chilly weekend outside but the gas stove kept us toasty inside. Huge tv and some board games to boot. Very spacious house setup with great lake view enclosed porch. Lots of things to do outside in this area. We tobogganed and hiked at pokagon state park, Shipshewana was just 30 minutes away. Several places to eat and be entertained nearby. Can't wait for summer to come back, the lake is just a few steps away with a fire pit in betweeen.
We rented the house on Lake Pleasant for a girl's week-end. Old friends getting together for a great time. The house is wonderful. The furnishings were very comfortable, the bedrooms were roomy and very clean. The whole house was very neat and clean. One couldn't have asked for any better place to stay. The lake was very quiet and peaceful. We would have loved to have been there during the summer to see the activity on the lake. If you're looking for a very nice house on a lake, this is the one!!!
We had a wonderful stay at this house. It is everything that is advertised and more. Our family loved it and the house made for a great summer vacation.
Wonderful, fully stocked house at the perfect location! We loved having our own dock for our boat and spent all our time in the big lakeside yard.
I wanted to take my 7 year old grand daughters fishing for the weekend and spend some relaxing nights with the rest of my family that also went, including my wife, daughter, and grandson. After searching VRBO, I found this little gem. It is a beautiful home with everything we were looking for, easy access to the lake, clean and comfy accommodations. The owner (Brett) was very helpful in making sure we had a great stay and her parents who live close by were very nice. I will booking this home again in the summer. Thanks for providing such a nice home that allowed us the time we needed to unwind and relax in such beautiful surroundings. Mike C
This home on the lake was beautiful in every way. It was not lacking in anything, except cleaning services on the last day. We had a great time and even though there were chores to be done before we left, I still gave it 5 stars. We had enough people in our group so that the work was done fairly quickly. I wouldn't want to have to do it all myself. My only disappointment was that the weather was cold for August (50's and 60's) so we didn't get to make use of the lake, boats, and outdoor activities at the house. It was a very comfortable and enjoyable time. Thank you.
If you need a vacation bad enough any house will work, but this house, these people...the Stephans, and this lake far exceeded our expectations. 120% fulfilled vacation
I have stayed at several lake rentals and this was the best! Relaxing and beautiful. Eventhough there was no wifi it was actually nice to cut the ties for a while with the world of electronics and enjoy the outdoors. Since I'm somewhat of a perfectionist I totally appreciated the precision of the cleaning list to keep it wonderful for all. If you tend to like to let things go and not pick up after oneself because you're on vacation this is not the place to be.
Beautiful home, immaculately clean, even the lawn is perfect! This house has everything you could possibly need for a carefree vacation. Nice furnishings, and comfortable beds. Kitchen has nice cookware, appliances, and all the utensils you might need. Newer washer and dryer and they even provide laundry soap. BBQ grill is nice and clean, but I couldnt find any bbq utensils, so you may want to bring your own. Big screen TV in the living room has Dish satellite and a dvd player, but since it's a little older, I couldn't hook up a HDMI device a brought along with me. There's a little tv and dvd player in master bedroom, but no cable, so bring your own dvd's if you want. The wifi was out during our stay, but the owner said it's being installed soon. Plenty of windows with views of the lake. There's a nice big sun room, AND a cute little porch off the master bedroom. The backyard is great place to hang out in their comfy chairs or swing. Bring along your yard games, like corn hole. (We bought our boat, it was easy to put it in at the marina on the lake) The boat dock is easy to walk on, even my mother in law had no trouble getting on and off our boat. They had a paddle boat a canoe we could use, and there's a row boat with motor available for rent. Lake Pleasant is a quiet lake, not too busy, excellent for fishing and water sports. Other reviewers talk about the extensive cleaning list to do before check out. It's true, it's alot to do, but that's why the house is so clean, and everything is so nice. I was dredding the cleaning list , but after spending the week there, I wanted to leave this nice place as nice as I found it.
We planned an extended family weekend as a gift to grandparents. We were 3 couples and and 3 young adults. We fished, boated, canoed, played games, napped, watched the water and generally relaxed. Plenty of space for everything. Kitchen and living space well-furnished--immaculate, comfortable, and attractive. Just like the website photos--no surprises. I would echo the comments about bottled water and knives for cooking. Hope to return next summer, perhaps for a longer stay!
We enjoyed a throughly gorgeous stay at this wonderful home. The view is lovely, the surroundings quite and relaxing. The accommodations above expectations. Beds were comfortable, rooms warm and inviting. I would suggest bottled water for drinking purposes, as others have, but otherwise, we wanted to move in and stay. :)
Home is very clean, organized and just as nice as the pictures. Wonderful view of lake which is also very clear. Weather cooperated for our stay and although the water was chilly, as expected for October, it didn't stop us from being in the water and utilizing the paddleboat and row boat. Depth near shore is shallow making this an excellect swimming location in summer months. State park is only about 5 minutes away. Owners parents are two doors away and very helpful. Bring bottled water for drinking if you are not used to well water. We had a wonderful time and hope to return.
My family and I met at this beautiful lakeside home. The home was in great shape and the surroundings were quiet and calm--rural and country. We enjoyed walking and playing in the large backyard--would have taken out the paddle boat but we hit one of the first fall feeling days of the year. The warm fireplace added great ambiance and everyone slept well in the comfy beds. The kitchen was fully equipped and dining area nicely situated for adults to eat and small ones to keep playing in the living room area. The only critique I have is that the homeowners cleaning list is extensive. Unlike any I've ever seen before. We spent 2.5 hours cleaning the morning of our departure and would have gladly paid $100 more to spend more time relaxing with our family before leaving.
The home was beautiful and exactly as depicted on the website. It was also immaculate. The owner was extremely generous and catered to our specific needs. The lake that it was situated on was very cozy and private but large enough to cater to our aquatic recreation needs. The water was crystal clear and we had fun playing on the lake. We didn't have any motorized boats but if we did it would have been an added bonus. House: fully loaded with everything you need. I was quite impressed with the dish wear, serving dishes, and cook wear. We easily prepared a meal for 7 adults and many little kids. Bring your own knives though for a better culinary experience. The washer and dryer were top notch. the bedding, pillows, decorations were all very nice and plentiful towels were ready and available after playing in the water. The bathrooms were beautifully designed and exceptionally clean. The water is from a well source so I would recommend you bring plenty of your own water because it had a slight smell but I'm sure it was potable. There is a VERY detailed cleaning to do list prior to departing so schedule that in to your trip or be ready to pay a hefty cleaning fee. However, given that the house was spotless when we arrived it was very understandable. The owners parents who help manage the property, bent over backwards to help us. Location: angola is a lovely little town. more known for the larger lake james, lake pleasant, which is where the house is on is very lovely. be sure to ask the owner about water recreational activities as they are very knowledgeable. and remember to bring your fishing poles! We would easily stay there again! So many built in amenities. A truly wonderful property with very kind and caring owners!
My Husband and I had a wonderful weeks get-away at this lovely home, early summer. We enjoyed the pleasant interior decorating and convenience. It is quiet and also a great place for walking. Close by, in Angola, there are many restaurants, also a short distance from Shipshewana, the Amish area, offering wonderful Amish food. This is a beautiful place to enjoy and relax.
