About Mike Nelligan
I grew up in St. Joe MI, graduated from Lake Michigan Catholic High School in 1984, and Notre Dame in 1988. We (me, my wife, and daughters) live in the Little Italy neighborhood on the near west side of Chicago.
Mike Nelligan purchased this Cottage in 1996
Why Mike Nelligan chose Dowagiac
I have fond memories of spending time as a child and teenager with family and friends at my grandma's cottage on Round Lake in Sister Lakes. I purchased our cottage on Indian Lake so my family could enjoy similar wonderful times at our cottage on the lake. We typically spend two weeks at our cottage in the summer, and rent it out for others to enjoy it the other six weeks of the summer.
What makes this Cottage unique
I take great care in maintaining our second home, and appreciate being able to make our cottage available for others to enjoy when we can't be there.

Enjoyable and relaxing week!!
This was our second year staying at this cottage, and hope to make it a yearly tradition. We have a "blended family", and it is nice to have such a wonderful place to get our family together. There is plenty of space for sleeping, with 5 queen size beds between the two bedrooms. The kitchen is large and equipped with everything you will need for preparing your meals. No need to bring anything extra from home!! And then there is the deck....wow!! The deck sits right down on the water. It is beautiful!! There are plenty of chairs for relaxing by the water. If you have a boat, there is a pier to dock it within steps of the deck. The lake is an all sports lake with great fishing!! We had both a pontoon boat to just "cruise the lake", and a speed boat to do some tubing!! There is something for everyone!! When we arrived on Saturday, the house was immaculate condition. All you have to do is unload your car and start your vacation!! Mr Nelligan made himself available via text/phone if we had any questions. I would highly recommend this cottage if you are looking a nice relaxing vacation. There are vacations that are all rushed and busy, but staying here is like being in paradise!! If you stay here once, you will definitely want to return, just as we did!! Can't wait to get back there again next year!!
Great Vacation Home on Indian Lake
We love staying at your place. It is clean and has all the amenities. Nice sandy water front.
Great place ON the lake
My family has rented this cottage for a week for the past 2 summers. Great place right on the lake. Has everything you will need for the week. Beautiful, clean lake about 2 hrs from chicago. We hope this becomes a yearly trip for our family.
House on Indian Lake
Cottage was updated, lots of sleeping room, air conditioning was nice, and the deck overlooking the lake was fantastic. We had a great time.

My family stayed for the week and had a wonderful time. This was exactly what we were looking for in a lakefront rental. The owner, Mike, was a pleasure to deal with. The fishing was great! My youngest son caught a 4lb bass from the dock just before the fireworks started across the lake. We are already planning our vacation for next summer and can't wait to go back. Anyone looking for a lakefront rental, be sure to give Mike a call you won't be disappointed.
Very nice place!
This was a great place to stay at Indian Lake. Beautyful view of the lake from a very! large deck. The cottage has everything you could possibly need... It has comfortable beds... The kitchen was well stocke with dinnerware and cooking pots... The neighbors were kind and friendly. I'd definitely stay here again!
