Syracuse cottage description

Enjoy cool lake breezes and warm summer sun while relaxing on the lakefront pier, which is over 100 feet long with a 22 feet by 12 feet sitting area at the end of the pier.

The lakeside pier has a large swimming & wading area with a sandy lake bottom. The pier has stairs and a handrail so grandparents and kids have easy access in and out of the water.

The lakefront pier is only 50 feet from the porch. There are no stairs to climb to access the pier. Wading depths range from 16 inches at the seawall to 36 inches at the end of the 100 foot pier. Twenty feet beyond the pier, it is over 6 feet deep.

The cottage is single story with no stairs to climb to access the cottage or piers. Pier 121 is located on a private drive with reduced traffic, which provides added safety for kids and less noise for those who want a more peaceful stay.

The cottage has four bedrooms and sleeps 8 people comfortably (6 twin beds and 1 double bed). It also has one cot with a foam mattress which is suitable for a child or teenager.

Pier 121 has the charm of a vintage cottage featuring:
- Screened Porch with Picnic Table and 2 Rocking Chairs
- Original Screened Doors
- Original Kitchen Cabinets
- Original Kitchen Countertop (retro-yellow!!)

Pier 121 also has modern amenities:
- Gas Grill
- Air Conditioning
- 32 inch TV with VCR and DVD
- Satellite Direct TV
- Water softener
- Full Laundry
- Gas oven and cooktop
- Side-by-side refrigerator with ice maker
- Microwave Oven
- Mr Coffee, Toaster, Blender
- Wireless Internet

The cottage is fully furnished, however guests provide their own bed sheets and pillow cases. Linens and are offered as an option (add $100).

The cottage can be rented for a weekend, weekdays (2 days minimum) or a full week.

Arrival and departure times during non-peak periods can be more flexible.

If renting the weekend for 2 nights, the published rates are based on arriving after 6 pm on Friday and departing by 9 pm on Sunday.

The property is located on a peninsula and has another pier on the channel, which is located across the road. So you can dock you boat(s) on the lakeside pier or the channel pier.

For added convenience, if you bring your own boat, we have a neighborhood boat ramp. You can park your boat trailer on the back lot by the channel.

Both the lakeside pier and the channel pier are good for fishing.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1997

                          About the owner: We have been residents at Lake Wawasee since 1987.

                          Why the Owner Chose Syracuse:
                          We wanted a weekend get-away for fun and relaxation for our family. Ideally, with good fishing, sailing, boating, and water sports. With over 3000 acres, Lake Wawasee offers it all. There is plenty of room to sail, jet ski, or water ski. And on the weekdays, it seems you have the entire lake to yourself. The water is very clean and clear. Lake Wawasee is located at a high elevation with limited run off into the lake. We liked having picnics and hanging out at the sand bar. Boat-in-worship on Sunday mornings is a delight. Also, the lake offers the convenience of 3 marinas and 3 restaurants, which are accessible from the lake.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Quiet private drive. No stairs to climb for access to the lake. The screened porch with rocking chairs is always cool and comfortable. Nice swim area with sandy lake bottom.
