Property Details

Updated: Jul 20, 2016
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 7 Sleeps

This cabin is located on Lake Shafer in Buffalo, IN. It is approximately 7 miles north of Indiana Beach while traveling by water. The newly renovated 900 sq. foot cabin is a home away from home. All new air conditioner units!! It has a nice porch that is great for grilling and dining out on. There are 2 bedrooms with a spacious living room, kitchen and full bathroom. Bring your own towels and linens. There are pillows and plenty of clean blankets. This serene location is great for fishing, swimming, skiing and boating. This area of the lake is nice, its has a sandy bottom and it is shallow enough for the kids to swim in. The further you go out in the water the deeper therefore, follow the channel for that excellent boat ride. Bring your own boat/waverunner or rent one from the local marina and keep it docked at the also included pier. After enjoying your time on the water relax in the large yard with plenty of room for the kids to play or have that awesome campfire to tell your ghost stories by. SMORES ANYONE?????

This was by far the best vacation I have ever had! The lake front was so relaxing and very calm. Perfect for the kiddos to swim in. Not much traffic with boats, etc ,,,, just perfect. Kitchen was fully stocked with EVERYTHING! We didn't have to eat out once! And the coffee left for us was just icing on the cake! Such nice owners and I got my security deposit back in two days as stated! I will go every year!

This place was just what my family needed! So clean and so cute and so relaxing. I will go back every year for sure! The owners were very easy to work with and were always available for questions and help with finding our way around the area (first time there)!

This place was perfect! Just what my family needed. A relaxing, quite getaway. The cutest place I have stayed in by far! The direct lake access was fantastic and my kids had the best time. They had "their own beach" they would say! Kitchen was heavily stocked with everything you would ever need and their was a Keurig Coffee maker with complimentary coffee! I have never had a Keurig Coffee maker anywhere that I stay! It was great!

I received my security deposit back within 2 days like stated and everything was fine. I will for sure be back to this lovely well kept home!

Make sure the weather has been and will be good in the area before you go. Tippecanoe River was flooded - so no beach, pier, swimming or boating available while we were there. Closer to main road than expected. Look the place over on arrival and departure. Take pics of any disrepair. Watch out for neighbor dog's "gifts" in the back yard. Close quarters inside. Close neighbors on either side of property. Big grassy front yard - part of elem. school property. Well stocked kitchen, but bring your own coffee maker, fly swatter and ant bait. Available coffee maker is single serve only. DishTV if you can figure it out. Nice fire pit. Bring your own wood. Nice deck. A/C not great. Grocery easy to find in town and convenient store/gas station on the corner. Economical. Nothing fancy as expected. Indiana Beach on west side of river and south. Wow. Time has not been its friend.

Owner's Response: Yes, making sure the weather is going to be good is always a good thing. When a flooding disaster comes through the area, in this case, I will allow short notice cancellation as mother nature is no ones fault. The house is equip with a Keurig Coffee Maker along with K-cups for you!! Sadly the house is on the lake and bugs are always a problem in this case. A fly swatter is there for your use to help with those annoying pests!! As for ants, there was massive amounts of flooding recently so it did cause a problem. After calling pest control I was told there wasn't much to do because of all the recent flooding. But now the flooding has subsided and the ants have found another safe home!! Also please feel free to take pictures when you arrive and when you leave if you feel nervous about the holding security deposit. I can assure you in several years I have only ONE time had to keep a partial deposit. One time and one time only. So all of my renters, except for one, have taken complete care of my home while there. I LOVE my renters!!
