About the property

Adorable Cottage Sleeps 6

This is a very comfortable cottage, perfect for your family or a couples get-a-way.

While this cottage is not lake front it is just feet away from the waters edge. One of my best times of the day is to get a cup of coffee walk outside the cottage while the dew is still on the ground. The sun is warming as I walk to the lake. It is so quiet, you can sneak up on the bass that are swimming by the seawall. Walk out on the pier and watch as the swans and other birds fly by, and watch as the lake starts to wake up as the fish jump hungrily for their morning meal.

Water fun abounds from your pier. Sunbathing swimming and fishing. At the end of the pier you can swim out to a floating raft perfect for the swimmers and sun bathing! The pier has space for your boat. If you are not bringing a boat we can help you with a pontoon rental. We also have a fishing boat that you can use on request by reservation.

Beach area is shared by others but plenty of sand for everyone. Sand toys are located at the beach area. We also have a wagon so you don't have to carry anything to the beach or pier.

This cottage has a bedroom with a queen size bed cable TV, and all bed linens. The second bedroom has a full size bed, cable tv, dresser and all bed linens. The living room has a sofa bed that pulls out to a queen size bed and all bed linens.

The kitchen is stocked with everything you need for making a fresh summer meal or just heating up a pizza! Check out all the amenities we offer for the kitchen. We don't want you to have to pack like you are camping. Just bring your food and enjoy your time.

The bathroom is small but has everything you need. Thirty bath towels, wash clothes, hand soap, and toilet tissue. Shower only sorry no tub. We do not have laundry area at this time but we do have a clothes line for wet towels and bathing suits.

This is a comfortable cottage for four people but you can have up to six people if you like each other😀 this place gives you options to go to other areas to be alone or just have some down time.

The outside area has a great shaded area with rocking chairs to sit and read. The deck area has the picnic table, gas grill with gas, and chaise lounge chairs.

For the enjoyment for little ones a swing set and play area is on site. This is a shared area with other renters of our cottages. Along with a fire pit, and fire wood. We encourage everyone to use this area and get to know others at the lake. Roast a marshmallow and make a friend.

About Kathy Selby

I grew up at Big Barbee lake. I was very blessed my Grandparents had cottages that they rented out weekly. This has been something that has turned into a very enjoyable vacation spot for many family's that rented here for years. Paul and I enjoy the lake and the area very much. We stay as often as we can. So you will see us often.

I live in Fort Wayne with my Husband Paul but we plan on living at the lake one day.

Kathy Selby purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Kathy Selby chose Pierceton

This was the first cottage that my grandparents opened. They bought it in 1958. It was a one bedroom.

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

The Ramona cottage was perfect for us. We greatly enjoyed our stay. Our only complaint would be that we didn't stay long enough, and that's on us... Kathy and her family were very nice and welcoming. We would definitely stay there again!!

Cute little cottage! Kathy is amazing and very acc

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very cute and clean! Can fit 4 comfortably. Ac’s worked perfect! Tv and WiFi included.The sofa is a pull out and the two beds are queens on opposite sides of the house for privacy. Perfect for my husband and 2 boys. Everything you need is already there!dishes, paper towel, spices, bathing towels, grill, all you need is your own beach towels and food. There was a cute little convinenece store right by our cottage and fine dinning right down the road! Yummy! Kathy is more than helpful and greeted us with a smile when we arrived! There is even room for your boat on her dock. Also, there is a public swimming beach for you a 2 min walk. Everyone was friendly and the fireworks were amazing!!

Charming, homey, just what I needed!

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the Ramona cottage at Big Barbee Lake was fantastic. I only wish I had a few more days there. Kathy, the owner was over the top helpful and guided us to the most terrific sights, restaurants and activities. She respected our privacy, and at the same time made us feel very welcome. The food was spectacular at the Barbee Hotel, and I am NOT a foodie! The lake was not congested with tons of watercraft vehicles and the water was warm for swimming and relaxing. I will definitely be returning. If you are looking for a quiet get away from the hectic busy life, I sincerely recommend this location!

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Cozy, clean, had everything one would need for comfortable vacation. Included was a nice deck (seperate from the house) that included a large grill and covered table/chairs. Parking was great. Owner was most accommodating & helpful. We had a fun weekend. We recommend this lake cottage.
