Tired of mowing a big lawn? cleaning a big house? caring for a big garden? paying big taxes?
Want time to travel? play golf? fish? read? learn a new craft? write the great American novel?
Need to conserve your retirement fund?
Dreaming of wintering down south?
For those age 55+, Klines Resort offers a variety of comfortable, low maintenance homes in a range of styles and prices. It’s your home, so you can decorate and fix it up as you please. Yards are small and easy to maintain, yet offer plenty of opportunity for the green thumb. Resort crews assist with leaf pickup, curb-side yard waste pickup, and tree trimming.
Better yet, living at Klines Resort is affordable. Site rent includes water, sewer, trash and recycling as well as road maintenance and street lights. Taxes are minimal: just $3 per month on the manufactured home, plus a personal property tax assessment on your home’s leasehold improvements. Residents enjoy access to beautiful Portage Lake and to the Resort’s facilities and amenities, without the costs and taxes typical of owning lakefront property.
For snowbirds and seasonal residents, a “snowbird discount” applies to any month your home is vacant between November and April. Our winterizing service makes coming and going easy, while neighbors and park patrol volunteers keep an eye on things while you are gone.
Your guests of any age are welcome! Take the grandkids fishing, invite your friends to a concert or pancake breakfast, or reserve the fireside room for a birthday party. Our annual “Kid’s Fun Day” is a highlight for many age 12 and under. Not enough room? Your friends and family can reserve a campsite and bring their own “guest bedroom” when they visit.
You’ll love our fishing and recreational opportunities. You’ll love our well maintained roads, treated water, and many resort amenities. You’ll love our location’s convenient access to US 131, I-94, and the Indiana toll road. You’ll love our friendly community, active social calendar, clubs and activities.
Manufactured home sites come in 3 site categories with 3 possible parking arrangements. Rent steps up an additional $10 per month for each site category.
Our smallest sites have on-street parking. Since these are our original sites they are typically closer to the lake. Homes on these sites are either newer models or well-maintained older models, usually with one bathroom and 1 or 2 bedrooms.
These make up the majority of the resort’s home sites. Homes on Cherry Oak St. have off-street parking under carports, while the remainder have on-street parking or access to rental garages on an alley. Both single and double section units are available.
Manufactured homes at Klines range in size from 600 to 1,600 sq. ft. and are priced anywhere from the mid $40’s to the $160’s. Each home is different and come with a variety of leasehold improvements, including carports, garages, sheds, heated additions, porches, and decks.
Since manufactured homes are designed for year-round living, homes are equipped with a natural gas furnace and a heat tape on the water supply. Appliances may be gas or electric.
All homes placed “For Sale” at the resort are inspected by management to insure they meet certain requirements for health, safety, condition and appearance. Copies of these inspection reports are available from the office. You may also elect to hire an inspection or appraisal of the home as part of your due diligence prior to purchase.
If you are looking for a seasonal home, park models are another option.
