Both East Street and Lake Street Retreat are a block away from the sandy private residential beach. Elkhart Lake offers beautiful clear, blue water and sandy beaches for swimming, boating and fishing. It is the fourth deepest lake in the state and has a sandy bottom that gently slopes down making an ideal area for children to play all of those wonderful water games and for parents to relax.
Elkhart Lake has provided relaxing family getaways for more than 100 years. Vistors have ranged from Al Capone to my family (however, we're not related :-)). For more wonderful information on the history of Elkhart Lake, check out the Elkhart Lake Chamber of Commerce.
