Quiet Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time renting a lake house. The view of the lake was amazing! I knew when we rented the home that it was an older home just by reading previous reviews. With that being said, the home itself was clean, properly equipped and provided us with everything we needed. We were fortunate enough to have had great weather during our stay which allowed us to really enjoy our time out on the porch. John the owner, was easy to work with. He answered all questions and concerns that we had prior to arrival. We would definitely recommend this home for anyone looking for a quiet getaway.

stayed mid July

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean, neat and as advertised. We very much enjoyed the

fishing from the dock. We are three older people in their mid seventies and

everything was easily accessible. Lake at your back door. Lovely glassed in back porch facing the lake and large deck facing the lake. Great getaway. Thanks, John

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived there is enough parking for 3 vehicles! The kitchen is supplied with enough dishes and utensils for eight people. There is a dish washer. Some pots/pans. A crock pot, 10-cup coffee maker, toaster. Two nice sleeper sofas and a very nice King bed! The one bedroom has 2 twin beds one very hard & one better. I would omit the low ceiling fan and replace with a light fixture. All the pillows & sheets & blankets are available. Two flat TV's with cable one DVD player. Now I would suggest the bathroom tub would be replace with a Senior friendly walk-in shower stall. My Mother was unable to use safely. The sound system that plays inside and out on the very large party deck is AWESOME! Make sure U plug in the night light rope! love the little Tiki bar! Also don't forget to place the old glory flag on the deck rail! The view is beautiful at sunset! For us swimmers the length of the pier is clear sandy bottom and shallow. There is a paddle boat. The large sun room has views out to the lake and seats 8-10 people. Yes the WIFI is good! Our dog enjoyed herself also. We have already booked to stay again in September even longer! Oh, Check in is 3pm and 11 am check out. Thank U John for letting us rent your cottage!

Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

I would highly suggest purchasing new bath towels and getting a mattress pad for the one twin (just like the other twin!) Other then those two minor things, we LOVED this house, view was wonderful, soo peaceful! Played cards out on deck with music, tiki torches, and deck lights till dark. Then continue our game inside in the sun porch. Coffee and breakfast in the sun porch every morning was wonderful too! Such a perfect place to stay for a girls trip to Shipshewana! LOVE! I'm SURE we'll be back next year!

Great Place, Little Misleading

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is a little old, but is well kept. Myself and 4 others enjoyed our stay. We played poker in the enclosed porch and had a bunch of great laughs. We enjoyed throwing frisbee in the back yard as well. We made a few trips to Shipshewana for breakfast at Essenhaus and for dinner at one of the Italian restaurants. Overall was great.


In the description under "Sports & Adventure Activities" it says "Jet Skiing, Sailing, Water Tubing, and Water Skiing" none of these can be done. The lake is private. So there is no public access. The lot next door has a private access, the guy lives across the road, he wasn't very friendly at all.

I did end up bringing my bass boat because I did not realize the lake was private. We just headed 3 minutes south to Stone Lake and fished and cruised around there. Stone lake is a 10MPH lake.

Overall our experience was great. Would give 4 1/2 stars if I could.
