About the Property
Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 1 Bath, (Maximum 4 adults or family of 6)
Lake Papakeechie is a private lake that was created about 100 years ago by combining several smaller lakes. The lake is controlled by an owners' association and there is no public access to the lake. Motors of any kind are prohibited. This ensures a peaceful environment with excellent fishing and safe swimming. The lake is fed by artesian wells and water from the adjacent wetlands of the game preserve. The water is tested annually by the association and is consistently found to be extremely clean.
One is surrounded by nature here. The lake is home to diverse waterfoul and wildlife including swans, geese, ducks, great blue herons, beaver and a bald eagle. Hiking or hunting in the preserve is literally across the road. It feels secluded, yet the Lake Wawasee public boat launch is 5 minutes away.
The cabin is located at the bottom of a steep driveway and there are stone steps to the cabin and lakefront. This may be a consideration for those with mobility issues.
We recommend that you contact us by using the email link on this website to ensure the most dependable response time. We try to keep the calendar as current as possible so generally you can check availability here as well.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: We are from Fort Wayne, Indiana. I am a contractor and my wife is retired after a career in non-profit. We enjoy outdoor activities, travel and family get-togethers. We have two sons who are married and two grandchildren.
Why the Owner Chose Syracuse, IN, USA:
Our family has owned property on Papakeechie for over 40 years. We love the lake and the area. Our family cottage is next door to this cabin and we purchased the cabin to provide extra space when needed and to protect our investment.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This lake is a vacation for the body and the mind. There is no hustle and bustle here, no jet skis roaring by and no waves crashing to shore. The loudest noise we hear are geese flying by or the sound of paddle boats in the water.
