About the property

Five Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Water Front Home, Large Yard, Parking, Garage Rec Room

Large Family Home on Snow Lake's north shore bay. Enjoy all the amenities this cottage has to offer with 2 family room areas with cable tv's and dvd players, large eat-in, fully-stocked kitchen and a 3 car garage with the 2 car part turned into a recreation area including ping-pong, bar space and cable tv. This cottage has 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths and sleeps 13. Winter is a great time to stay in this SNOW Lake home. Pokagon State Park is just a 5 minute drive away. After a few hours on the toboggan run, come back and warm up in front of the fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate. We do decorate for the Christmas season, so if you are wanting a spacious home to host your family over the holidays, this one would be perfect. In the warmer months, take your morning coffee on the huge deck that looks out to the bay. Take a swim as you wade in from the sandy beach or relax on the pier as you watch the kids swim. Paddle boat is included with this home. Plenty of room for your water toys as this home has 2 new piers and a large sitting area that connects them. We are located in an idle zone, so it is a very calm place to swim and float. Snow Lake is a 4-minute idle away. Want a long boat ride? Venture through the Snow Lake channel and enjoy Lake James. The yard is perfect for corn hole (provided) and horse-shoe (provided) and other yard games. Enjoy walks around the quiet cul-de-sacs or venture over to Pokagon State Park to take a hike (five minutes to the entrance). There is so much to do in Angola and Fremont and this is the perfect family home that is close to it all. Call me direct at 2 six 0 - eight 20 - 00 three two.

About Kelli Bucher

We have been married for 28 years, have been blessed with 4 sons, two lovely daughters-in-law and 2 adorable grandchildren. We were both raised by taking a family vacation to the Lake every summer...both being on Lake Wawasee for years. About 16 years ago we started renting in the Angola area and absolutely loved what all Angola has to offer...not only the beautiful lakes, but Pokagon State park, shopping, dining and grocery stores. When decorating this cottage, we have used some of Grandpa's stuff from Lake Wawasee when he had a cottage. See if you can pick them out. Such a neat way to keep a lake legacy going. We hope to create many memories with our family and are so hoping you do the same with your family.

Kelli Bucher purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Kelli Bucher chose Indiana

While out on a Pontoon ride with some friends of ours, we came across this lovely property. We love the setting this is in. Quiet cul-de-sac with nice homes, plenty of parking, large yards (front and back), and most of all the lake front view with it's sandy beach and wonderful pier space. The inside fits our family well, as it has 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths. Loved that it had two family rooms and the 3 car garage was a hit as our boys are turning this into a man-cave, rec room.

Perfect Spot for Lake Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend stay at the Bucher Bungalow. This home is spacious with five bedrooms, living and bonus rooms and three baths. It is very comfortable with super cute decor. Great outdoor spaces to enjoy the water. Garage area is an added bonus for hours of fun hanging out when not out on the lake, complete with 2nd refrigerator. Owners pay close attention to detail and are super to work with. We hope to visit again and give this home and vacation experience two thumbs up!

Ladies' Training Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 12 women meeting for an intensive weekend of training. This home was wonderful. The home is spacious and we had plenty of room to spread out and study. The kitchen was well stocked. Kelli was great to work with and answered all of our questions quickly. We are going back in February and are looking forward to it. Thanks Kelli.

Comfortable, roomy and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

Rented this lovely property for a girls weekend. The house is very roomy, beautifully furnished and in a fantastic location. The owners are wonderful to work with - very accommodating and easy to work with. The property is easy to get to and truly a few minutes away from Pokagon State Park. We had the very good fortune to be there on perhaps the most glorious fall weekend ever and we had a memorable time together. Kitchen is well stocked and the linens are plentiful and of good quality, which is not always the case with rentals. Lots of things for kids and adults to do, both at the house and nearby. Highly recommend this property!

Fantastic family rental with lots of space to spread out and plenty of beds to sleep many!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a beautiful Fall weekend at this lake house with extended family (Grandma, adult siblings and our own kids ages baby up to 13.) Plenty of space to sleep everyone comfortably, lots of "living" space for kids to play while adults visit. We also enjoyed the firepit and kid swings outdoors. Everything has been well thought out and prepared for guests... lots of towels, blankets and bedding, as well as a well-stocked kitchen! We cook all of our meals together at the rental house and we had everything we needed and more! Appreciate the second frig. for more space to keep cold foods. Highly recommend this rental for almost anyone!

Fall trip

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I usually get away for a 4 day weekend every October with one or two other couples, and we usually rent a house for the trip. We had a wonderful time this year, renting Kelli's home for the first time. It was warm, spacious and quiet. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook breakfasts and dinners. The location was easy to get to and set in beautiful surroundings on the lake. Close to good restaurants, a small outlet mall and other shopping, we found plenty to do while there. Shipshewana is 30 minutes away. Kelli made us feel very welcome and was very helpful providing house details and local travel ideas. We will definitely return again.

Peaceful Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My family was there for a short getaway during our school's fall break. It was gorgeous and relaxing. The cottage had everything you could ask for and more! I know my kids would love to go back again when its warmer and spend more time on the lake. Great family time my son called it :)

Our Snow Lake cottage is 5 minutes to entrance of Pokagon State Park. Pokagon is a perfect spot to visit whether you want to hike or do the Toboggan run during the winter months. Just minutes to Fremont Outlet mall and Satek Winery. Downtown Angola and it's quaint shops are only 15 minutes away. Want to golf? Several golf courses within 15 minutes. How about your hunger pains...Dave's Lake Shack is around the corner (must be 21), Timbuktoo's is 5 minutes away. And of course, the well-respected 4 Corners is around 6 miles from our home. 4 Corners has it, Acupulca Grill, Mad Anthony's Brewing Company, Yo-yo's yogurt and the ever-famous Tom's Donuts. Want fast food, Applebee's, or BWW's? Angola is a quick ten minute drive for all of your eating tastes. Try Samantha's or Village Kitchen for breakfast and Caruso's for a great Italian dinner. Cooking in is easy when you have Meijer's, Walmart and Aldi's close by. And let's not forget Harger's meat market for your grilling needs on our gas grill. Need gas for your boat...gas station just up the road by the outlet mall.
