• About Us

  • The Indian Lakes Estates subdivision was created in the late 1960's and early 1970's, when Okemos, Michigan was still a small town surrounded by open fields and untouched nature space.  The one hundred and nine lots were developed to embrace family life, relaxed attitudes and nature-friendly sensibilities.  

    While the nearby towns of Okemos and East Lansing have grown into bustling suburbs, conveniently close to MSU, Indian Lakes Estates has carefully maintained its irenic environment.  Neighbors still wave to each other in passing and wildlife still dot the peaceful landscape that has no cut through traffic to break the quiet of our living. 

    Along with plentiful sightings of geese, hawks, owls, foxes, deer, and even turtles.  One might even hear the yelps of coyote at night.  It truly is the best of both worlds.

  • On behalf of the Board of Directors, we would like to welcome you to the Indian Lakes Estates Homeowners Association (ILEHA), or reintroduce ourselves. The newly formed Board has been working hard to rejuvenate the Association's activities.

    As a resident in Indian Lakes Estates, you are automatically a member in the ILEHA. We believe that members of the Homeowners Association have two responsibilities: one to themselves and their residence, and another to the association and the community concept. There are certain privileges and responsibilities you have as a resident-homeowner-family.

    As a homeowner, you may have some thoughts about improving your property. Please keep in mind, the Association has a review process to help maintain the quality of our neighborhood. Its function is to evaluate the plans for exterior alterations and remodeling to ensure compliance with all Covenants and Bylaws. The provisions within our Deed Restrictions is to protect our scenic environment and maintain the value of our homes.

    Please take the time to familiarize yourselves with the Bylaws and Deed Restrictions documents you received during the home purchase process. The self-monitoring model, along with open communication, has shown to be most successful and preserves positive relations.

    If you do not have these documents, we encourage you to contact any Board Member to obtain copies, at your convenience.
