About the Property
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + , 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-11). Large yard, deck, dock, beach
Some fun places to go:
Shipshewanna, about 23 minutes away, the heart of the Amish community. Shipshewana features lots of great shops, great homemade food, indoor waterpark, and an auction/flea market every Tues/Wed.(April-Oct). Kukui Shave Ice is great refreshment on a warm day and it even has a gum ball at the bottom of each dish! The Eash Bulk Grocery store has some great bargains and the deli is really good and priced reasonably. They only take cash or check at the grocery, no debit or credit cards. And if you want to hold and love on some puppies, go next door to E&S Sales. We got our sweet Maltipoo puppy there.
Angola, about 25 minutes away, has an outlet mall, restaurants, movie theater and Pokagon State Park with hiking, toboggan run and cross country snow skiing.There is a Walmart, Menards, Kohls, Meijer and CVS in Angola, along with most of the popular fast-food establishments (McDonald's, Wendy's, Taco Bell, Burger King, Subway, Arby's).
Auburn, about 25 minutes away also, has a great movie theater, Cracker Barrell, fast food places, Home Depot and a Walmart just off of I-69.
Stroh, just across the lake, has a great pizza place called Stroh Pizza and More. Their ice cream is amazing! They take cash or checks but no credit cards. The gas station in Stroh has some groceries and will take a credit card if your purchase is over $10. There are 2 other family/pub restaurants in Stroh. Stroh also has several places to worship on Sunday.
No pets are allowed at any time.

About the owner: We love coming to the lake to get away! It's always a relaxing experience and it provides us a haven of rest from the demands of our busy careers. We have a large family and they, too, have come to appreciate the lake cottage as a place to come and fish, swim, lay out on the beach or relax by the campfire.
Why the Owner Chose LaGrange, IN, USA:
Growing up as a young girl, some of my wife Kathy's earliest memories were coming to Big Turkey Lake to her grandparent's cottage, which was located just down the road from our current vacation rental. When there was an opportunity to purchase this property, we decided to continue the tradition for our own family and provide them with some of the same memories that have been cherished over the years. Big Turkey Lake, located in Steuben County in northeast Indiana, is one of the numerous lakes in this area, and is located within reasonable driving distance from many large cities in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Illinois.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our cottage is much larger than the average vacation rental and can easily accommodate a large family or a large group of up to 10 or 12 people. It is perfect for family reunions, church or business planning meetings, retreats, 'girl's' or 'guy's' weekend away or just a romantic get away for two. It is very close to Angola and Auburn (both about 25 minutes away) where you can find most of the necessary conveniences (grocery, hardware, restaurants, movie entertainment, etc.). It is within a reasonable driving distance (2 to 3 hours) from major cities like Indianapolis, Detroit and Chicago. Major medical services can be found in Ft. Wayne, about 45 minutes away.
