Property description

RESERVE NOW for 2015

ASK ABOUT OUR 2BR Condo TOO! Located just across the drive from this BayView Cottage. Great for larger family gatherings! Also advertised on VRBO.

Watch the sunrise from this 3 bedroom/2 bath home on Big Monon Bay in Monticello, Indiana, with Lake Shafer access close by. This is in a quiet area, No Wake Zone, deep water swimming, and great fishing opportunities. Ideal for canoeing and kayaking. A boat ramp is just across the way. We have 1 canoe, 2 paddles, and a larger canoe/paddle boat with outriggers for your personal use on Monon Bay. Bring your own life jackets.


Besides HD TV and Cable, there is Wireless Internet access. There are TWO covered and lighted boat slips with lifts (one rigged for a pontoon boat and the other for a deck boat) and three furnished decks, one of which is over the water and is VERY LARGE. The master bedroom, living room, and kitchen all have a panoramic view of the bay. Sliding glass doors from master bedroom and kitchen allow access to large deck area. A growing collection of books, movies and games are provided. If you are looking for all the amenities and benefits that a well-equipped, attractive, private home on the water can give you, this is the vacation home for you!

Special Notes: Water depth varies from 5 feet at the seawall to 12 feet at the end of the docks to about 20 feet in the middle of the old river channel. Sandy swimming areas are readily accessible by boat on Lake Shafer and by both boat and automobile at the famous Indiana Beach Amusement Park, which maintains a designated beach and water park about two mile from BayView Cottage.

Access from BayView Cottage docks to Lake Shafer is under the Monon Bay bridge about 1/8th mile from the cottage. THE MONON BAY BRIDGE HAS BEEN RAISED SO MOST ALL BOATS FOR THESE WATERS WILL FIT UNDER BRIDGE NOW!


If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call or email Rachel.
