Located near many fun family activities!!!


Families, Church Retreats, and Businesses: The cottage is perfect for gatherings of families, friends, church retreats, and business team building events that, after the day’s activities, would like to retreat back to their very own comforts of a warm and cozy cottage to watch movies, relax, or snuggle by the fireplace.
Take time to visit the Buffalo Preserve. You can also visit an award winning winery with excellent red and white wines available for tasting and purchase. If cars are your interest, you may enjoy two local speedways. You could also take a quick 30-minute drive and enjoy the Auburn, Cord, Duesenberg Museum which houses classic vintage automobiles from the early 1900's up to WW II era vehicles. Or visit the NATMUS Museum which houses vehicles from the post war years. Or visit another flavor of museum --- the Hoosier Air Museum (operated by the Hoosier Warbirds) at the DeKalb County Airport which features aircraft from throughout the history of aviation. Autumn offers an exceptional time...

The Days Events: The children will love exploring the surrounding land, the lakes edge, catching frogs and fish, while you relax in a chair watching with a hot cup of coffee. Latter the kids will go swimming, play on the raft, use the paddle boat, canoe, while you play along with them or take a nap. After lunch is a great time to get in your motor boat and water ski, water tube, hang out at the sand bar, or dock up to the 4h fair grounds to hike. That evening while the sun sets the fire pit is the place to be. Roasting smores, telling stories, enjoying each others company, being warmed by the fire as the children start to realize they are tire. Tuck them in and it is your time to catch up with your honey. How do I know this, I have a lovely wife and triplet children age 8. We have enjoyed this cottage for the last 8 years.

Local and Distant Attractions : I personally want every Family, Mother, Father, Child, and Grand Parent to get the most out of their vacation and dollar. Searching the web can still be a lengthy task with all of the links and pop ups so...We will send out a package of the local attractions (5 to 20 min drive) and not so local (20 min to 1 hour) attractions.

          Location

          Car: Necessary

          Our Large Golden Yellow Cottage is located on Crooked Lake (880 acres), 3 basins, a Marina, a public 4 H club, public large sandy beach with a play ground, large sand bar, a 2 mile stretch to tube and ski (know for calm water to bare foot ski), and also known for a few fishing tournaments. The cottage is in the heart of the famous N.E. Indiana Lake Country. Local attractions: Angola (small town that takes you back in time and antiquing), Pokagon State Park (known for its great trails, buffalo, and toboggan run), Pigeon River Canoe & Kayak Trips (a family journey and gorgeous scenery), Fun Spot Water / Amusement Park, Rapid Raceway (known for Family racing 'Thunder Dome')Angola Motor Speedway, Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum, 4 amazing golf courses - Zollner Golf Course, Glendarin Hills Golf Club, Lake James Golf Club, and Hidden Valley Golf Course. 50 Minutes South is the city of Fort Wayne with the Lincoln Museum and Nationally acclaimed Children’s Zoo.

          Other Activities: Many local (not congested) Large State Parks, Small Amuse. Parks, Winter Activities – sledding, snowmobiling, and toboggan run 1,700 Feet

          Golf: This area is known for it golf courses! I encourage you to Google “Northeast Indiana Golf Courses”. We rented to many avid golfers this past year and many are repeat customers. They come strictly for the GOLF!

          Ski: Winter Time Cross Country Ski - Pokagon State Park. My family does it 2 times every winter. It is tradition for us. We Love it. The State Park is huge with many nature trails and hills. We also take our sleds, because there are big hills with picnic areas with shelters to build a fire. Oh and the legendary Pokagon State Park Toboggan Run. You have to do it. It is great FUN!

          Year Purchased: 2006

          About: Hi, I am Steve Just, Mechanical Engineer from Purdue University. I was born, raised, and my family lives in Fort Wayne, Indiana. My wife, Amy, and I have 3 children (triplets) age 14 now. We have been married for 19 years and dated in high school and through college. We have a miniature schnauzer named Lucy Lick’ems. Our children love to play at the lake cottage and have for years ever since they were 1 years of age. I pride myself on communicating and answering yours and your family’s questions as soon as possible. We are the owners, so you are not working though a 3rd party. Please feel free to call me anytime. There are so many properties I am sure you have looked at on line, so let me help you where I can. I am sure your family will appreciate you taking the time to pull this together, it is not easy. Let me help you by making this process as easy as possible. Thanks, Steve Just.

          Why Angola:
          We choose this property, because the land is spacious with most lake fronts having 75 feet frontage, so you have more privacy then cottages that are spaced closer to one another. We love the town of Angola. The neighbors are nice, the street is quite, the dead end street is safe for little ones and pets, and the cottage is large enough for a good sized family and friends.
