                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: We are a family run business that believes each of our guests is part of our family or 'crew', as we like to say. Many return year after year and have made Blue Door Cottages 'their place' for the summer. We would be honored to have you stay with us and join the crew!

                          Why the Owner Chose Monticello:
                          There is no better summer vacation spot. Not only do you have the lake (Lake Shafer), you also have Indiana Beach Amusement Park, and one of the oldest drive in movie theaters in the country, not to mention numerous other activities. Located an easy 2 hour drive from Chicago, or 1.5 hours from Indianapolis- there is no better, more authentic 'summer experience' around.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          This property is the best of all worlds. It is a 5 minute drive to the Amusement Park, yet far enough away from all that chaos and it is peaceful and serene at night. You have the lake, and pool, as well as great waterfront bar/restaurant directly across the street with the best views on Lake Shafer.
