Consider Lake James if you’re looking for lake homes for sale in Indiana. The Steuben County lake is the largest in a series that comprise the region’s Chain of Lakes, and it was carved out by glaciers thousands of years ago. Lake James is surrounded by stately homes and the Pokagon State Park, ensuring that there’s no shortage of stunning views, stellar recreation opportunities, and year-round fun!
In the summer, savor the lake in its liquid form by making as much of a splash as you can! First off, take a stroll around Lake James’s 18 miles of pristine shoreline. You’ll find handsome lakefront properties nestled by the Pokagon State Park, which occupies most of the eastern shore. You’ll definitely want to dip your toe into the glistening water, and then dive in! There are 1,229 acres of beautiful fresh water to enjoy as you please. Set off in your powerboat, Jet Ski, pontoon boat, or canoe and take in the eye-catching scenery. And don’t worry that Lake James will leave you high and dry in the winter either; you’re welcome to skate, slide, and ski across when it freezes over.
Lake homes for sale have full access to all Lake James has to offer all year long. In fact, the lake community takes great care and pride in the area, originally buying the land that is now the Pokagon State Park. In the park you’ll find such recreation features as a well-kept public swimming beach, close to 11 miles of pedestrian trails, horseback riding, cycling trails, and a campground. Visit in the winter to partake in cold-weather favorites like ice skating, tobogganing, and cross-country skiing. Many species of wildlife also call Lake James home, giving it a reputation for excellent bird watching. Though, you might prefer a sighting of your own birdie by hitting the links! Lake James Golf Club, along with others in the area, welcomes your next hole-in-one. If you’d like to live on a Lake James area golf course, visit GolfHomes.com

Northeast Indiana’s landscape was chiseled and crafted by the same mammoth glaciers that eventually receded into the Great Lakes. The deep gashes in the land filled into such beloved pools as Lake James, which is now known more for its fishing than its impressive inception. The lake hosts healthy populations of catfish, walleye, perch, and largemouth and smallmouth bass. Smallmouth bass like to keep it cool, being more active (and hungry) in spring and fall. Largemouth bass and catfish, however, welcome the heat and will bite at just about anything when the waters get warm in the summer. Everything you love most about Lake James can be enjoyed in the winter, too, even the fishing! Set up your shelter and settle in for a unique and authentic Indiana fishing experience!
