About Josie Grennes
Our family has enjoyed this lake and resort for many years. We take pride in this unit and facilities and treat it as our home. It is our slice of paradise in Indiana, we hope you feel the same when you leave!
Josie Grennes purchased this Cottage in 1998
Why Josie Grennes chose Monticello
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 perfect for any family. Beach area has large pavillion to relax under or enjoy sunning in the provided layout chairs.
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.

In all the years that we have rented our personal cottage, this was the only time that we have had such a bad experience with our guests and the ONLY time we have asked someone to leave. Your reservation was made for 4 adults and then after receiving word that there were "a lot" of people in the unit by others, it turned out that there were more people than on the reservation. Our unit is designed for and clearly states that the maximum amount of people in the unit is 4 adults and 2 children (6 people). When we approached you to confirm the number of people, after the first night that you stayed, we were told, by you, there were 6 adults and 1 child. After coming back once again, we confirmed, by talking to you, there were actually 9-10 people in 4 cars (one that happened to be a 12 passenger bus). This was also after speaking with you and you telling us how nice the unit was and how you liked it so much. We are very accommodating to all of our guests that follow the set guidelines. As you can clearly see in our prior reviews our unit is well liked. I’m sorry that you did not follow the rules and chose to lie about the number of people to our face and that subsequently, since you were asked to leave, you gave us a negative review. We pride ourselves on the quality of our cottage, resort and good experience we have with most of our guests. I would hope in the future that you follow the guidelines of any place you stay as you may encounter the same “negative” outcome that occurred here. We second your opinion of “Never Again”.
My wife and I enjoyed our stay. Home was very clean and had all the essentials we needed.
Had a wonderful relaxing weekend
Perfect Family Getaway
The cabin and the little resort were perfect for our family getaway. The cabin is definitely cozy, but it was a nice change of pace. The playground and pool were a HUGE hit with our 3 little boys. We took a hike down to the beach and through the "woods". The owners and their extended family were very welcoming. We would definitely visit again. I wanted to give this place 1 star only so other people wouldn't discover this hidden gem!
Perfect for 2 pregnant ladies needing a relaxing girls weekend!
We were 2 pregnant moms needing a mini "do nothing" vacation before 2nd babies arrive. The pool was steps away from unit and there was a nice walking path for mini excercise time. Several good restaurants were driving distance. Size of unit was good, beds were comfy enough, and amenities were good. Beach was not anything to be excited about but would have been acceptable if we had wanted beach time (we were happy with pool). If you're a bigger person, shower is a little small but workable. We felt the unit would be tight for more than 3 people but it was perfect for us.
Neighbors were friendly. Unit had very nice touches throughout! I especially loved the adjustable shower head and hooks for towels on back of bathroom door;)
Only suggestions I have are to have explicit directions on how to lock door when inside unit and directions to beach (drive down road before community entrance to see sharp turn road with white gate before entrance OR walk to the left of unit 14 & down stairs).
If you're looking for things to do, there's a cute putt putt type place a few miles south on 421 & a small movie theatre a few miles north!
Thank you for sharing this place with us! We are already discussing coming back next year with our families...or maybe for another girls only weekend ;)
Clean cottage -- good, safe location for small families!
The house was very clean and well-stocked which was a definite plus. Perfect for sleeping 2 adults and 2 children -- the playground and pool next to the cabin was a great addition for young children. The "master" bedroom could use an updated mattress but overall, a great place to stay.
Relaxing and well appointed!
We had a great week on Lake Freeman! The cottage was very well appointed, super clean, and had everything we needed. The pool, playground and lake area were all clean and equipped with floats, toys, chairs, umbrellas, and everything we needed to have a great time. The Grennes family were great hosts and very accommodating. We highly recommend staying here and will likely come back again.
This unit is located just miles away from Indiana Beach Amusement Park. You are just a short distance from a rare private beach, fishing and boat docks. There are many activities in the area including hiking, mountain biking, shopping and many other enjoyable activities.
