2 Bedroom, 1 Bath Cottage With Private Beach, Pool, Lake Access, Boat Launch
Juliene & John
About Juliene & John
We grew up in Northern Indiana along southern tip of Lake Michigan and near Chicago. My husband attended Purdue University in West Lafayette, and I attended Purdue University Calumet. We have owned property in the Von Hollow community since 1985 and love the opportunity it affords us and our children to reconnect to nature and each other whenever we have the chance to 'get to the lake'.
Juliene & John purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Juliene & John chose Monticello
We liked the excitement of the big city, and the allure of the 'Big Lake', and we love boating, jet-skiing and all things water and wanted to find something smaller, more private, quiet and accessible to most boats and boating recreation. This cottage and the private community it is a part of is something rare and extraordinary that not many people get to experience. We wanted to share that experience with others. We also love that it is so close to Purdue, Indiana Beach, and many wonderful restaurants...see Top Notch in Brookston, IN (Not To Be Missed on the weekend for the filet mignon). There is also a connectedness with nature that can be had here whether enjoying the lake, sitting on the deck, taking a walk or bike ride, or reading on the beach. We know time is precious and fleeting and hope you can spend some of your time enjoying what we call our second home! Hope to see you soon at Von Hollow; you'll be glad you stayed with us :-)
What makes this Cottage unique
Simply the location, private community, and hard-to-find private community beach and lake access to Lake Freeman made this property the best find. The fact that this cottage operates more like a home makes it a great year-round retreat for us and our friends.

My friend and I stayed in this cute cottage with our girls and we all absolutely loved it! The cottage was very clean, and had everthing we needed for a comfortable stay. The playground and pool were a huge plus. We didn't have to spend any extra money on activities so us mommies were very happy about that! Thank you so much! Will be making plans to return in the future!

Perfect getaway with kids
We have stayed in this cottage twice now and it was even better this year! Everything was very clean and today when we arrived and so many considerate details are included. Thank you for a wonderful place to getaway!
Big fun near Lake Freeman
This cabin was in a great location, near Lake Freeman and very close to Monticello. The pool was great. My grandkids really enjoyed the big playground.
We are located in a private community on beautiful Lake Freeman. Our location boasts its own exclusive boat ramp launching area, a private beach, private pool, playground for the little ones with a rock-climbing wall, and an outdoor volleyball court. Our little getaway also has a private deck overlooking the upper pond (there are two ponds on the property adjacent to the private lake access road, that ultimately feed into the lake below). We have a gas grill next to the cottage for enjoying a relaxing summertime meal. A fire pit is also provided for your enjoyment if you wish to cook s'mores outside or simply enjoy the ambiance of a nighttime fire.
