It’s beautiful and people smile at one another. People are genuine, and there is a wonderful mix of families with young children, retired couples, and college students from next door Grace College.

Winona Lake is a quaint town that is beautiful in the summer and fall. There are also a variety of shops with everything from varieties of olive oils to mountain bikes to pottery. The change I hope to see is more visitors, restaurants, and activities centering around the lake.
Beautiful, quaint town loaded with shops and places to eat.Moments ways from the lake, Grace College, and family park. Bike trails galore run through this great little piece of heaven
