About Kelli Bucher

We have been married for 32 years and have been blessed with 4 sons, 2 lovely daughters-in-law and 3 adorable grandchildren. We were both raised by taking a family vacation to the Lake every summer...both being on Lake Wawasee for years. About 21 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 were able to use some of Grandpa's decor 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 Fremont

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. This location is easy to get to, as we are located just 2 miles from I-69.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay was great, everyone had a marvelous time we enjoyed using the paddle boat, kayak, stand up paddle board, corn toss game, ping pong, BBQ grill The room upstairs was great - my great grandchildren loved watching The Lady & The Tramp - everything was above & beyond what we expected.

Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We love this place. We have used it the last two winters for our family to be together. We travel from Michigan, Indianapolis and Denver to this place to create fun memories for our adult children and for the grandchildren to play together. There are enough bed rooms for everybody. We had 8 adults and 6 children. The kitchen is well stocked with all the equipment we needed. The garage with the ping pong table, darts and tables for game playing was well used.

Great Spot for Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my mom’s 60th Birthday with a surprise weekend away. The location was great and the house provided plenty of space for our three families to have their own areas. The kitchen was well equipped, lake access was close (for ice skating), and beds were comfy. It really was a great place to stay with plenty of great amenities (Fireplace, DishTV, Games, Etc.)

My only little complaint is that the room temperatures were difficult to balance. One room would be chilly, while another warm. I’m sure there isn’t much that could be done, but it was slightly challenging to find an agreed upon temperature.

A great time had by all!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home that is well appointed. There was plenty of room to spread out and comfortable spaces to gather together. My eight year old grandson especially liked the frozen lake and we all had a blast at the toboggan run! The house park pass was an extra bonus!

Family get together

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a family get together as a surprise for my sister's 60th birthday. She is really big on family and this seemed the perfect idea and she loved it! Kelli was very helpful in answering any questions we had and explaining the house for us. We had special concerns because a couple of people in our party were elderly and could not navigate stairs very well. This house turned out well for them. The house was clean and well stocked. I really liked how the bedrooms were set up and the beds were comfortable. The fireplace was great. It was to cold to be outside but the view of the lake was very relaxing. We did not explore the area, we spent our weekend at the house visiting and playing games. That may be something that would help if more games were available at the house. There were some games there which was nice. Also, thanks Kelli for being so great and letting us arrive early and stay later! That really topped off our time there! We would definitely stay here again!

The house is comfortable & big enough for a large group. The amenities & ‘toys’ they have provided help with the stay & the play. The view is awesome, the access to the water easy & it’s oh so peacefull.

Great place to be!!

Highly recommend!!

Beautiful and comfortable lake house. Very nicely decorated.

  • 5 of 5

Weekend getaway for six sisters. We had such a great time. The owners are very accommodating. Kitchen has new appliances and everything you need for meals as far as pots and pans, dishes, silverware, cups and glasses. Lots to do at the house and nearby.

We did a craft project creating scarecrows using clay pots. They turned out so cute and it was great fun. Wish I could post a picture on here.

Highly recommend this vacation rental, you will love 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.
