About John

Hello, I live in Michigan near Ann Arbor. I grew up in North West Ohio and lived in North East Indiana for about 20 years before moving to Michigan. Very familiar with the tri-state area....It's really a gorgeous area!

John purchased this cottage in 2004

Why John chose Indiana

Situated about one half hour from Notre Dame(South Bend). Also plenty of shopping and sight seeing in Shipshewana. Antiques, Auctions, Flea Market, Water Park, Middlebury Indiana is minutes away, Das Essenhaus (Dutch)Restaurant, Rulli's Italian Cuisine

What makes this cottage unique

Great view, just the right size for our little group!

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed staying in this cottage. Comfortable, great view of the lake, everything we needed. Clean, and well supplied with kitchen pots, pans, and utensils. Close to Shipshewanna for our annual shopping trip! Will check availability for rental next year!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly what we were looking for. Small cottage type on a lake. Lake was warm and area was quiet. Amenities were as stated and home/linens/etc were clean. Location was ideal (10 min to gas station/30 min to grocery store) Use of owners kayaks was a major plus. Not to mention star gazing at night! We definitely will be staying here again in the future!

Quiet Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time renting a lake house. The view of the lake was amazing! I knew when we rented the home that it was an older home just by reading previous reviews. With that being said, the home itself was clean, properly equipped and provided us with everything we needed. We were fortunate enough to have had great weather during our stay which allowed us to really enjoy our time out on the porch. John the owner, was easy to work with. He answered all questions and concerns that we had prior to arrival. We would definitely recommend this home for anyone looking for a quiet getaway.

stayed mid July

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean, neat and as advertised. We very much enjoyed the

fishing from the dock. We are three older people in their mid seventies and

everything was easily accessible. Lake at your back door. Lovely glassed in back porch facing the lake and large deck facing the lake. Great getaway. Thanks, John

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived there is enough parking for 3 vehicles! The kitchen is supplied with enough dishes and utensils for eight people. There is a dish washer. Some pots/pans. A crock pot, 10-cup coffee maker, toaster. Two nice sleeper sofas and a very nice King bed! The one bedroom has 2 twin beds one very hard & one better. I would omit the low ceiling fan and replace with a light fixture. All the pillows & sheets & blankets are available. Two flat TV's with cable one DVD player. Now I would suggest the bathroom tub would be replace with a Senior friendly walk-in shower stall. My Mother was unable to use safely. The sound system that plays inside and out on the very large party deck is AWESOME! Make sure U plug in the night light rope! love the little Tiki bar! Also don't forget to place the old glory flag on the deck rail! The view is beautiful at sunset! For us swimmers the length of the pier is clear sandy bottom and shallow. There is a paddle boat. The large sun room has views out to the lake and seats 8-10 people. Yes the WIFI is good! Our dog enjoyed herself also. We have already booked to stay again in September even longer! Oh, Check in is 3pm and 11 am check out. Thank U John for letting us rent your cottage!

Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

I would highly suggest purchasing new bath towels and getting a mattress pad for the one twin (just like the other twin!) Other then those two minor things, we LOVED this house, view was wonderful, soo peaceful! Played cards out on deck with music, tiki torches, and deck lights till dark. Then continue our game inside in the sun porch. Coffee and breakfast in the sun porch every morning was wonderful too! Such a perfect place to stay for a girls trip to Shipshewana! LOVE! I'm SURE we'll be back next year!
