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

Quiet Lake Front Property and gorgeous Sunsets

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

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!

Great Place, Little Misleading

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is a little old, but is well kept. Myself and 4 others enjoyed our stay. We played poker in the enclosed porch and had a bunch of great laughs. We enjoyed throwing frisbee in the back yard as well. We made a few trips to Shipshewana for breakfast at Essenhaus and for dinner at one of the Italian restaurants. Overall was great.


In the description under "Sports & Adventure Activities" it says "Jet Skiing, Sailing, Water Tubing, and Water Skiing" none of these can be done. The lake is private. So there is no public access. The lot next door has a private access, the guy lives across the road, he wasn't very friendly at all.

I did end up bringing my bass boat because I did not realize the lake was private. We just headed 3 minutes south to Stone Lake and fished and cruised around there. Stone lake is a 10MPH lake.

Overall our experience was great. Would give 4 1/2 stars if I could.

Enjoyed our stay.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the beautiful sunsets on the lake in the evening .Sitting in the enclosed porch playing games in the evening . Early morning coffee on the porch in the morning is so relaxing along with planning our day .

The house does need updating as previous reviews as stated but that does not stop us from staying here . The bathroom is the room that needs a full renovation.

We did have visitors (ants) which can be expected this time a year. Found some bug spray under the sink and that took care of it .

Needs a lot of work

  • 2 of 5

House needed MANY upgrades. They didn't even have hand soap in the bathroom. But they did have bar soap in the shower with hair all over it!! No hand towels or wash rags for kitchen they were all for the bathroom. I would never put 10 people in the house 6 max. Ants in laundry room. This is also a dry county. Pictures make it seem like there is a beach and there is not. On the upside The owner was very nice and so was the neighborhood. However the neighborhoods we had to drive thru to get there made me want to turn around and run! We did have a nice time as a family of 3, but would not stay there again. We did not complain and I didn't write the review until a couple months later when I came across the listing again looking for next years vacation spot.

Owner's Response: There must have been an issue with the cleaning person at that time. We always leave hand soap. Also it is not a dry county. Indiana sells liquor 6 days a week. Michigan which is literally one mile north sells liquor 7 days a week. I apologize for the ants. I did some more thorough poisoning and extermination after your visit.
