About Becky VanOsdol

We were born, married and raised our three daughters in Kosciusko County. I had always dreamed of a lake cottage. In 2013 we found this house and completely gutted it to the studs, changed the floorplan and rebuilt it. It has our blood, sweat and tears in it. At the end of 2016, we finally finished the third bedroom . In 2014, we decided to move our family to South Carolina and love to come back to Indiana frequently and enjoy our cottage. We are happy to be able to share our home with others and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Becky VanOsdol purchased this cottage in 2013

Nice cottage on Channel

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Becky's place. It was nice, clean and had enough room for our large family, and we loved being on the channel connecting to the lakes. A larger TV and bar stools for the counter would be a super addition. Overall a great stay.

Thanks again for welcoming us in for the weekend. We had an amazing time and everything was perfect. Also the cable worked great, we were able to watch a lot of college football on Saturday.

A comfortable vacation in a water resort area for those who like to boat and fish.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is well supplied with amenities. TV and game selections galore. Kitchen was fantastic. Decking was elaborate but needs replacement ASAP. It was delightful to sit on the deck for outdoor meals. Would suggest updating towels and providing spreads for all beds.

We enjoyed our stay here. Thank you.

More than meets the eye!

  • 4 of 5

Spent a wonderful week with family and friends! The open floor plan made meal prep more fun because were all together! Generous number of beds, futons and a sofa beds made sleeping easy. Great access to Big Barbee and the sand bar on Kuhn lake. We rented a pontoon boat and parked at the house's dock.

Ran into a hive of bees in the outdoor outlet by the grill, but sprayed ourselves and took care of it. Screens on the windows would have been nice to get the breezes. The kitchen desperately needs some cutting boards!

Overall a wonderful place to relax and spend quality time with family. Thanks again!

Lovely home and beautiful area. Quiet surrounded by water .

  • 4 of 5

3sisters and myself had a nice reunion and relaxing 3day stay. Two are handicap and could not get to patio with wheelchairs so sad. Could assess from bedroom but patio boards were not capable of holding weight. Only downside! Clean and well supplied kitchen,easy to use appliances. Would book again!
