Welcome to our Resource for Relocation Information

We have tried to create a resource where information could be obtained on a variety of subjects without doing a tremendous amount of study and investigation.   The topics that have been of particular interest to those whose Relocations we have handled have been included.

The surprise in all of the information shared in this website is the vast variety of services, facilities, activities, recreation and entertainment available in a city the size of Columbus or within a short drive of Columbus.  The feeling one gets when visiting the city and touring what the city offers is that Columbus is a very special place!

We who live in Columbus feel that the “Quality of Life” is very special here.  There is an opportunity to quickly become a part of the city, getting acquainted easily, having opportunities to become a part of volunteer efforts (if you would choose to do so) and soon feel comfortable in the surroundings here.

The very unique thing about Columbus and its location is the fact that it is located in the middle of this triangle created by Indianapolis (north), Cincinnati (east) and Louisville (south).  This means that although we do not have an international airport, Broadway theater productions, professional sports, etc. here, we are really close to three cities where these things are available.  These three cities are conveniently located to Columbus.  Also – just 4 hours north – Chicago is an easy drive with interstate all the way.

So, we offer the quality of life of a small yet very special city with all sorts of advantages closeby in all directions!

Lakes in Southern Indiana




Columbus is blessed with several lake communities with a wide variety of homes and amenities.  Established neighborhoods like Sandy Hook on the East side of town and the Lagoons near downtown offer moderately priced homes with the convenience of living near schools, shopping and many restaurants but still being able to swim or fish from your own dock or small boat.


Farther east in the county, Shaeffer Lake offers affordable homes on a lovely lake with fishing, swimming, boating and water skiing options.


On the west side of town, Tipton Lakes Community offers three beautiful lakes connected by a series of small channels. All residents, regardless of whether they own lakefront property have full use of all lakes and the marina.  Only non-motorized boats are permitted but summer evenings will find a number of residents in pontoons and kayaks enjoying spectacular sunsets. A number of hardy fisherman are often found ice fishing thoughout the coldest days of winter.


Farther west in the county, Harrison Lake offers  lake living with many residents and non-residents choosing the option of country club membership. Some of the added benefits are a beautiful club house, 18 hole award winning golf course, swimming pool, tennis courts and nature trails.

For those homeowners desiring the features of a larger lake, beautiful   Grandview lake offers water skiing, motor boats, fishing and swimming and many beautiful year around and summer homes. Nestled in the western hills, Grandview Lake  offers spectacular views of nearby Brown County.


For serious water skiers, Sawmill Lake offers lovely homes located on competitive ski lakes. Nearby, Tamerix Lake, Wood Lake and Terrace Lake also have many lovely homes with private wooded lots.


It has been said that once you experience lake living, you never want to leave.  Many residents have moved from one lake to another over the years but simply aren’t willing to give up the added enjoyment of waking up to sunrise over the lake, sipping wine while enjoying a beautiful sunset cruise or just relaxing on an intertube or float on a warm summer day.


Lake property is available in most price ranges so if you’ve always thought you might like to live on the lake, maybe this year is the time to make the move. You may never want to leave.
