Paradise is defined by Webster as any place or condition of great beauty and happiness.
There is a place next to paradise Where peace and beauty abound. The soul longs for tranquility And here it can be found”
There are hikers and bikers And skiers and boats. Music and balloons On 4th of July floats.
There is swimming and tubing and fun Fowl and fish” And beach get togethers Where you eat hot dogs and bring a covered dish.
Our lake is a special place where friends and families can play With picnics, cookouts, and bonfires at night
And Karaoke and dancing on a wafin summer day.
What joy is given at Christmas time When our homes are ablaze with lights. To help stave off a gray mid-winter And we look forward to next summers delights.

The Dunlap brothers, Alan, Jay and Paul first leased Lot 79B in the early 1960s. Along with their neighbor, Gene Eaton, a pair of A frame cabins were built. The families shared the cabin, alternating times so that one family could spend a week at a time at the lake. There was no heat or air-conditioning, but none of us seemed to mind. In addition to the lake activities of swimming, tubing, skiing and some fishing, we would walk to the General Store in South Bend where we could find a wonderful display of candy. And if we were lucky, we would drive into Louisville for an A&W Root Beer Float. The annual Water Skiing Show was also an event to look forward to. Eventually Paul sold his share to Alan and Jay. Around 1985 the A frame was torn down and replaced with the existing home. Although we had wonderful memories in the A frame, it was equally wonderful to have more than 1 bathroom, heat, air conditioning and fewer ways for the bugs and mice to get in. We could also visit during the cold winter months. Jay’s children decided they would like lake homes of their own and soon purchased lots on Big Sandy. When Jay decided to follow his children to Big Sandy, Judy Dunlap Eicher (Alan’s daughter) purchased the lakehouse. Currently Judy and her family of 4 children and 12 grandchildren own the lake house. And continue to relive and create new memories.
