Lake Tippecanoe cottage description

Hart's Desire Cottage on Lake Tippecanoe (AKA Lake Tippy) is a super family friendly cottage lake front - just steps from our back patio to a sandy, gentle sloping beach with 90 foot pier for your boating needs. Being an all sports lake, you can bring all your toys - wave runners, jet skis, wakeboard, bass boats, etc. In addition to water sports, Lake Tippy is an excellent fishing lake for pan fish (blue gill and crappie fishing, bass, pike and muskie. Tippy has produced some of the largest muskies in Indiana have been pulled from Lake Tippecanoe. Lake Tippecanoe is a 768-acre, all-sports lake located in Indiana near Fort Wayne. The Hart's Desire cottage has been host for over 30 years of family vacations with a clientele that has been coming back for as many. The cottage is nestled only 50 feet from a sandy beach with gentle slope for younger children. The cottage has five bedrooms and one-and-one-half baths, sleeping nine in beds. (2 Queen, 1 twin, 2 twins, 1 twin trundle) It is totally updated with carpet, full kitchen, patio, and much, much more.

With depths up to 123 feet, Lake 'Tippy' as it affectionately called by locals has channel access to over seven other lakes in the Barbee Lake chain. The lake also holds excellent bass and pan fishing opportunities along with a growing opportunity for big muskie. Its neighboring lake, Webster Lake, has been rated as high as fifth in the country for muskie fishing.

Although many of our guests prefer the prime summer months, the months of September and October are by far the most beautiful and less busy than the summer season. September and October are perfect months for empty nester and senior citizen getaways! This is a must do vacation spot!
