Ellis Lake is the perfect location for your family getaway. With the ability to sleep over 30 in air conditioned comfort, extended family and friends can enjoy a whole new definition of roughing it. Start your day by enjoying the sites and sounds of nature from the cantilevered deck at the main cabin. Take in the peacefulness and serenity of your own private lake throughout the day. Whether you are fishing, kayaking, or simply floating around your own private paradise, the craziness of life seems to disappear. The more adventurous types may find themselves biking on the trails, zip-lining over the water, or shooting skeet at the range. Start your evening with an amazing cookout and perhaps some time in the screened in game room. Finish off your evening with your favorite beverages and music under the stars next to an amazing outdoor fire. Reflections of the day and wonderful family memories are oftentimes etched in stone in this incredible venue.
It is amazing what a change of scenery can do for your team’s attitude. The same old meeting place typically gets you the same old results. Whether it is your senior team getting together for a strategy session or your entire group getting together to celebrate and have fun, Ellis Lake brings out the best in everyone. Less than an hour from downtown Indy and only 35 minutes from the Indy Airport, your retreat is only a short distance away, even for a one day event. You can setup the meeting room in classroom or boardroom style. Most importantly, team building and innovation abound in this incredible environment.

Ellis Lake has had the privilege of hosting many private organization events. The campgrounds, shower house, guest house area and pavilion, can easily accommodate 50-75 guests or more if necessary. The pristine grounds provide a great venue for large team activities. Volleyball, frisbee football, capture the flag, and of course zip line activities are all favorites. The lighted shelter provides a fantastic picnic or outdoor classroom setting. The corporate hangar is a great place for indoor basketball or movie night on the 106″ big screen. Ellis Lake provides groups a truly private experience.
In the past we have used group camping sites at state parks and Ellis Lake represents a significant upgrade in so many ways. Privacy, fantastic fishing, great pavilion for food prep and meals, thoughtfully-appointed shower house, I could go on and on.
The location from Indy was perfect…far enough away to be “quiet and dark” but close enough that time isn’t wasted on the road.
I would highly recommend this property for any group gathering where there is a premium on shared time outdoors while still having modern conveniences available.”
Do yourself a favor, try this place out. You’ll enjoy the experience!”
The main house has everything you could ever need and the owners were genuinely committed to ensuring our family had an awesome stay. This beautiful home and surrounding sleeping quarters accommodated our family gathering of 8 which included 3 seniors (84, 73, 69), two adults (48, 45) and three children (21, 17, 14). The location can easily accommodate more people as well. We had plenty of acreage to roam, walk, ride and play together or individually. The lake offered plenty of water activities to keep the teenagers active, the hammocks offered needed rest and relaxation under the peaceful, tranquil trees.
Pictures and words cannot do this justice. You have to visit and just experience this wonderful retreat for yourself and family. One of the few family vacations we have taken that our children have asked when are we going back!!!
Thanks for the memories!!!!!”
