Quiet Lakeside Spot minutes from the Dunes National Park. If you are looking for safe and peaceful, this is your stop. The spot is in our driveway. We live on the outskirts of town, outside city limits. Our yard is just over 2 acres. The driveway is a circle. The subdivision is a cul de sac. Kid friendly. Dog friendly. Our back yard is on a small lake. A majority of the lake is a park, and there are no electric motors on the lake. (Electric pontoons, trolling fishermen, kayaks, paddleboards, etc are welcome). A great stopover if you're on I-80, I-90, or I-94, even I-65. Valparaiso is full of restaurants you know by name and many many custom dining experiences. If its summer there is water hookup. (City water). Happy to share our internet with you as well. For nature, you will likely see or hear: Geese, Cormorants, Bald Eagles, Turtles, Fox, Herons, Frogs...
