Fun place!!!

  • 5 of 5

My familt stayed at this listing in July/August 2013. The description of the house is very accurate. Owner is very helpful with any request. We traveled with 6 adults, 3 teenage boys, 2 children, and 2 dogs and there was PLENTY of room to be comfortable. The kids had a great time on this small, but very sporty lake (as well as our German Shepherd). Neighbors were friendy. There are places to shop/eat within a very short distance from the house. I would recommend this rental in a heartbeat!!!

Fair place to stay

  • 3 of 5

Property was a little underwhelming when we arrived. The pictures made it look a lot nicer, newer, and roomier. We were pretty crowded with 6 adults and 5 kids. In addition, we had to do cleaning when we arrived as the cleaning is dependent on how the previous renters leave it. The owner was very pleasant to deal with and responsive to my calls. However, would probably stay elsewhere in the future.

Really fun!

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great time staying at this lake house. Catherine was a wonderful hostess, she was very prompt to respond to me with any questions I had. The house was clean and comfortable. The water was great and the sandy beach was a lot of fun for the 1ry old we had with us. We would love to stay at this house again in the future and would definitely recommend!

We had a great family vacation !

  • 5 of 5

The lake home provided a great place for our family to enjoy time together. The sand beach area gave our grandchildren a safe and enjoyable area to play while enjoying the beauty of the lake. The house was clean, organized, and served us very well. The owner made a special point of contacting us to insure we had the best experience possible. Kayaking, canoeing, fishing, catching turtles gave our family many positive moments. Beautiful lake - ideal for families!! Thank you !!

Cathy's Cottage = Home Away from Home - Amazing Amenities!

  • 5 of 5

I didn't know this kind of class and service existed in the state of Indiana. Cathy has gone to great lengths to decorate, clean, and stock this fantastic home with everything you will need for a fun-filled getaway. The living room furniture is great, and you can fit a lot of people in this home. We WILL be going back to this house in the future, and I can't wait! Thanks Cathy!
