Located on Simonton Lake in Elkhart. Nice & compact, studio apartment with a million dollar view! Perfect, quiet getaway for short or long stay.

This is a perfect location! Although it is a peaceful, quiet retreat away from the hassle of Notre Dame traffic, it is so convenient to everything.

Seeking a short get away
The couple Kim & Larry (the owners) whom we never saw have a fantastic little place here. It's called an apartment but I think that term doesn't do it justice. Only thing wrong with our stay is that is was too short and rather chilly. There is nothing that you'd need to bring with you except food & drink. We even added a few things, tongs for indoor cooking and a thermometer for the enclosed patio (don't know if they'll want to keep them). The lake and it's view are great. The water that was much too cold for swimming at the time we went was crystal clear. We want to go back again. If you've never been to the area make sure to leave time to go to the RV Museum.

Beautiful view

5/5 Excellent

Very pleased with the location and property. Quite nice to have bath samples and coffee pods in this beautifully outfitted cottage. If there were any suggestions it would be to have better pillows. Outside of that, all good. Look forward to a stay in the summertime. Thank you too for the upfront info on prevailing ice storm and the later checkout. Take care!
