Mirror lake B&B is surrounded by lakes, lakes and more lakes.

It's January and winter is upon Northern Indiana with cold temperatures, wind, snow and ice. Sometimes we almost forget why we love it here, then we remember lakes, lakes and more lakes. Although the B&B is located on it's own private Mirror Lake within only 5 minutes you can be at the largest man made lake in Noble county called Sylvan lake. This lake in known for all lake fun, skiing, jet skiing, fishing, tournaments, swimming and boating. Granny's restaurant (18 & over only) is open May - September right here on Sylvan lake. This picture was taken on a week night, weekends the view is much different!!!

2 miles down the road from Mirror Lake you will pass Jones lake (no public access) and just a few more miles is Waldron, Tammorack and Steinburger lakes. A lot of these lakes are connected by small rivers and channels, once you put your canoe or Kayak in you can go for hours (may not have all clear travel)!! A few miles further away in Noble county is Bixler lake and campgrounds in Kendallville and Skinner lake in Albion.

This is a view across Witmer lake

5 minutes from Mirror Lake B&B into LaGrange county you will find many lakes, parks and campgrounds.
Messick, Dallas, Hackenburg, Wesler and Witmer all connect, some of these lakes are only fishing, some have 1-4 skiing only and some are all day water fun. Coody Brown's is a restaurant and bar located across the road from the public boat access at Wesler lake.

Public access at Wesler lake

I took this picture sitting on the bridge at Loggin's Landing the bottom picture is Messick lake and has access to Indian Lakes Campgrounds, the top picture is the channel going into Dallas lake once you get into this lake it's a big nice skiing lake.

Atwood lake (not
pictured) has a public beach area and has a large campground too, but does not connect to the other 5 lakes.
5 more miles away are Emma, Oliver, Martin, Olen lakes and many more. Within minutes we have Delt Church Park and Rogers Park they have small rivers that run through them and connects to many of these lakes. While still in Lagrange county although 20 minutes away we also have a small town called Mongo with many acres of conservation land. Caneoing, fishing, hunting and camping can be enjoyed by many.
Come enjoy the things Northern Indiana has to offer lakes of all kinds, campgrounds and parks. Although we are blessed to have all this around us we are MORE then happy to come back to a quiet and peaceful place to relax and watch a beautiful sunset here at the private MIRROR LAKE B&B. Summer will be here before we know it!!

We enjoy the rustic, private and peaceful atmosphere, paddle boat rides, fishing, setting around the campfire and watching beautiful sun sets on Mirror Lake. Coming to Mirror lake is more then a destination.... it’s an awaking a life style almost forgotten.
