About Mike Messmer
We have owned a cottage at Lake Wawasee since 1987.
Mike Messmer purchased this Cottage in 1997
Why Mike Messmer chose Turkey Creek Township
We wanted a weekend get-away for fun and relaxation for our family. Ideally, with good fishing, sailing, boating, and water sports. With over 3000 acres, Lake Wawasee offers it all. There is plenty of room to sail, jet ski, or water ski. And on the weekdays, it seems you have the entire lake to yourself. The water is very clean and clear. Lake Wawasee is located at a high elevation with limited run off into the lake. We liked having picnics and hanging out at the sand bar. Boat-in-worship on Sunday mornings is a delight. Also, the lake offers the convenience of 3 marinas and 3 restaurants, which are accessible from the lake.
What makes this Cottage unique
Quiet private drive. No stairs to climb for access to the lake. The screened porch with rocking chairs is always cool and comfortable. Nice swim area with sandy lake bottom.

Fun and Sun
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cottage. Ample room with 3 bedrooms and bath in cottage and 4th bedroom in the renovated garage with nice laundry and bathroom. Loved the swimming, nice and sandy. Excellent location and ample parking. Well furnished. Nice screened in front porch and roomy front yard. Nice pier also.
Thanks for the review. We're glad to hear your family enjoyed the cottage had a good time. We hope you can visit Lake Wawasee again in the near future.
My family rented Mike's house for a week this summer. The house was clean and comfortable, and the location is fantastic. The kids had a great time swimming off the pier and fishing in the channel. The neighbors were very nice - including Mike, who lives next door.
A family reunion at the Lake
My family stayed at Mike's place on Lake Wawasee and had a very nice time. We particularly liked the screen porch and the view from the living room. The pier was great for swimming and lounging.
Sister Trip 2015
Our trip was a dream come true. The home was perfect and there is no words to describe the lake. Although the weather was very cold, we had a wonderful time.
Long time friends yearly guy trip
We enjoyed the place and lake very much. Only issues we had was wish we had a bigger boat and more hours in a day to enjoy it!
Houses were a bit close together from a "party" standpoint but neighbors were not bothersome.
Todd... Don't wait !!! Start now to persuade one of your buddies to buy a bigger boat for next year...all kidding aside, glad to hear you had a good time.
Perfect lake house
Mike and his home at Pier 121 were perfect for our family. I have been visiting Lake Wawasee for many years, including spending summers there as a kid. Given that Pier 121 represents an old fashioned lake house, it really brought back great memories. The house had great lake views, great fishing just off the pier and was very clean (we actually met the cleaning crew as we were moving in - very conscientious). I would recommend Pier 121 to anyone, and hope we can stay there next year!
Frank....thanks for the comments. Glad to hear you had a great time. We hope you and your family can visit again next year.
