Activity and Interests

Our Shavehead lake cottage is located about 20 minutes north of Elkhart, Indiana. It is also easy access to the toll road and just about 30 minutes from NOTRE DAME. Shipshewanna is about 45 minutes away. This is a great location for shopping (Shipshewanna flea market open on Tues. and Wed. May thru Oct.) or dining. Shavehead lake is a clean, clear lake with fishing, swimming and boating. There is a nice public beach area for swimming that is located just a short walk from the cottage.

The peninsula is a perfect place to take walks or ride bicycles.

For winter sports, we are located near skiing and snowmobile trails. Also, a good place to ice fish.
