About Steve or Amy Just
Hi, This is a picture of 2 brothers who love the lake in all seasons. On the left Is Rob and the right is Steve. The ice fishing was fun that day. I wish we could say we caught a bunch of fish, but that would be a fish tail. We are both engineers who enjoy the lake and thought we should share it with others. So give us a call.
Steve or Amy Just purchased this Cottage in 1994
Why Steve or Amy Just chose Angola

100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The property is very well-maintained and sits on a beautiful location.
Our family stayed here for Labor Day weekend and it was an excellent stay. The property is clean and a description is very accurate. We enjoyed the close proximity to the water, the beautiful sunsets, and the responsiveness of Steve and Amy!
The accommodations were perfect for our kids -they loved the bunkbed room. It was great to be able to fish right from the dock and to have easy access to the lake for boating!
Before we left we all decided this might become a yearly tradition. Thanks for a great experience!
Another good week!!
We really enjoy this cottage. We rent both the copper roof cottage and this cottage together, for a nice family vacation. It is very well supplied and clean. This is our 5th year renting, and hope to come back again next year. Thanks Steve!!
The cottage was well-kept and had lovely front yard with patio and furniture
There were so many rules! I appreciate that they are trying to keep the property neat and a minimum of upkeep. Although the rules specifically say to take trash out, trash can was half full when we arrived. The gas grill needs to be replaced. The lowest temp we could get was over 400 degrees. Totally ruined 5 steaks. The burners are completely burned up. There was not enough silverware or cups for 6 people. However, we were able to overcome these deficits with the good weather, terrific patio and fire pit.
We really try our best for our guests. I do appriciate feed back right away by calling so i have chance to correct an issue.
We have trash pick up on Monday mornings, so the 3 day previouse guests trash was in the trash can. We really can not help that. As far as the grill, if i would have been called, i have aback up grill in the garage to exchange. I requested feed on the grill from the following guest Tarra and here is our text:
Tara, i just heard from previouse renter that the grill burners will burn high. I did not know the grille was not functioning. Is it functioning for you?
Yes, just fine. At least by my standards😀�. I just turned to low and our food has turned out excellent.
I am truely sorry for the loss of the steaks and the loss of time to prepare.
We have updated the silverware, cups, and plates. It is good to have feed back so we can improve.
We do try to provide a nice comfortable experience for the & value.
The first impression wasn't the best because the grass wasn't cut and the beach area was weedy.
My husband cleared the weeds from the beach so the grandkids were able to enjoy the water a bit. Other than that it was perfect! The view is amazing. Will definitely look at renting again next year.
We love to hear when families, have agood time. To help with the weeds that washed up on shore, we purchased a new rake for use. This family left the cottage very clean. We woold love to have them back again!
Our family enjoyed the stay. We met with the owner and they were nice and supportive
The property is situated on a lake close to all facilities. The house was very comfortable for a family.
This small cottage is perfect for a single family. We have been renting it for 4 years now, along with the larger cottage beside it. It is always very clean, well supplied with a nice kitchen, and comfortable interior. The updated pier and sandy area on the beach is very nice. Picnic tables, gas grill, canoe, paddle boat, along with a big yard to play games, and a fire pit makes for a lot of family fun. 3rd basin is great for skiing and tubing. You may want to bring flotation toys to float out in the water, because the lake bottom is soft. Steve is great to answer any questions or concerns promptly, and keeps the yard and cottage very nice. We are planning to rent again next year. Thanks Steve,
