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

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!

Summer 2017 -- Family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay @ Kelli Bucher's lake home. It was another pleasant family vacation for all of us. We try to do a 3/4 day gathering every year. Last year it was Grand Canyon, year before it was Charleston - but this recent stay was the BEST! We are 15 in number and so far have never had any blow-ups - you know together for long times can be frustrating - but this recent stay had so many toys, games, etc to keep everyone HAPPY! We want to do it again -- God willing next year. Because God tuned in the weather - and the sunshine came! Yeah! The water toys were used safely and often by everyone, except Grandma - I just loved watching my family have fun!

Perfect place to enjoy quality time together no matter your age!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed some true quality time in your wonderful place. We had ample space for our group and the large kitchen table provided room for our late night games and talks! Nicely appointed with many amenities and a lot of sleeping space.

Beautiful lake setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed staying here this summer! Beautiful home with large kitchen, new countertop and appliances- lots of room to cook for a crowd. The 5 bedrooms plus an upper level room gave us plenty of room for sleeping- we had several families plus two babies and were all quite comfortable! Loved the deck out by the water, we spent lots of time relaxing and taking in the sunshine... beautiful yard with room for kids (or adults) to play. Quiet neighborhood, close to the outlet malls and not far from Pokagon and Angola with plenty of restaurants to choose from! Gorgeous place to stay!

Fantastic Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We decided last minute to go to the Bucher's cottage over Spring Break. It was such a cozy cottage with cute decorations that felt comfortable and homey. Plenty of room to relax, especially with the view of Snow Lake out front.

It was one of my favorite family vacations with the 3 of us, and we look forward to going back.

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!

Map

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 all...pizza, 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.
