Why Josie Grennes chose Indiana

This is one of the most unique properties that you will find on this lake. It has a family feel with many options of fun. We have our own sandy beach which is very unique to this or other lakes around. Fishing is excellent. The pool is 25x55 and can accommodate many people (Ranges from 3'-10' deep). Numerous playground equipment and large park are is perfect for any family.

What makes this cottage unique

You get so much more than a standard hotel room. This is truly your home away from home. You can calm things down when in comparison to the hustle and bustle of staying near Indiana Beach but yet are just a short drive away.

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this vacation cottage to anyone. We enjoyed our time and this location very much. The little cottage was very clean. They had 2 TV's and DVD player. Beds were comfortable. Outside the cottage was a very nice park for kids to play and a very nice swimming pool. Behind the cottage they had a fire pit with chairs and plenty of fire wood. I wish we could have stayed longer. Our kids did not want to leave. Met the couple that owns the place and they were very nice. We are looking forward to returning sometime in the future. Highly recommend this location for a very reasonably priced time away with a fun park to go to. Thanks for providing a great place to stay.

Cute small cottage in great enviornment

  • 5 of 5

Was looking for a short notice long weekend with kids and mother. Owners were very accomodating, the place was immaculate, small, but cute. Kids loved the pool which was well maintained. We rented a pontoon boat on Lake Shafer for a day and loved the fire pit, neighbors and beach!

3-night stay at Von Hollow Resort

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Von Hollow Resort for a week last summer, and really enjoyed it, so we stayed for 3 nights this year. We booked the same cabin. Had a great time at the pool, by the river, grilling, and sitting around the fire. Also went to Indiana Beach amusement park again, which featured some upgrades.

Ryan and Josie are great to deal with, and they continue to invest in the property with improvements to the cabin and common areas.

Everything described and more.

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a weekend trip with my sisters to Monticello, Indiana and this cozy cottage. We had never spent time alone without the rest of our extended family. What a nice place to visit, it was private and very clean and well appointed, and easy find thanks to the owners detailed instructions. We sat on the patio, made dinner, watched movies and slept very comfortably. The lake access was easy to find, the area around was conducive to walking. I even jumped in the pool for a short swim. Thank you for opening your home to short term rentals at a reasonable cost. We are already planning to bring our families and mother to the region next summer. Can't believe how convenient the area is to our homes, Chicago and Cincinnati.

The process was SO easy, thank you Homeaway!

Clean & comfortable with access to a great pool & park!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cottage! The owners took great care in making sure the cottage was extremely clean and comfortable. We have 3 little kids and the park & pool were so much fun for them. The pool was equipped with toys and everyone we met at the resort was so nice. We would definitely stay there again!

Great little cabin

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed 2 nights at this property. It was a cute, cozy place. It is close enough to Indiana Beach but far enough to a peaceful fire at the end of the day. The pool was awesome. Everyone in the resort was friendly. I would highly recommend this property.
