Roomy Waterfront House with Great View of Sunrise

  • 5 of 5

The house was right sized for our entire family (2 Parents, 3 Sisters with Husbands, 2 Brothers (one with Girlfriend) and 6 kids (11, 9, 7, 4, 3, 1 years old) using air mattresses we brought for the kids.

Renting the pontoon boat with the house is a must if you don't have your own boat. We brought our own tube to pull the kids. The owner also let us use his kayaks, paddle boards and paddle boat.

Fishing was great. We dropped the line in and immediately caught fish (Small mouth bass and sun fish) off the end of the pier. At night, we caught cat fish.

The water is clean and the neighbors were very friendly. One neighbor let us use the diving board off his pier to let the kids jump in and swim.

Would I Recommend....ABSOLUTELY!

My family had a blast and we would definitely consider returning for a visit in the future.

Great family get away

  • 4 of 5

Had a great week revisiting IN and being able to entertain a number of friends and family in the area. Although it could have been better had the weather cooperated, this rental provided sufficient space inside to comfortably accommodate some rather large gathering with numerous children running around. Everyone enjoyed themselves and it was even better the last day when it was finally nice outside. The owners were absolutely great and even took a couple of us out for an intro tour of the lake on the first night.

Great GearFest Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had seven guys from our church's tech team attending Sweetwater's GearFest and wanted a place to hang out in the evening that provided better gathering space than a hotel. This house was perfect. We grilled out on the deck both nights and every body had a bed. The owner and his wife were very cool and we had an amazing time.

Great Memorial Day Weekend Pat B.

  • 4 of 5

We went up for Memorial Day Weekend to swim, boat , fish and watch the Indy 500. We had a very nice weekend. The house was roomy, clean and fit my wife and I with 2 of my children and their spouses with my 6 grandchildren very comfortably. We cruised in the pontoon boat around the lake several times enjoying the view. We stopped at the Shady Nook Inn to eat dinner on the pontoon and would gladly recommend it. The grandchildren enjoyed the swimming in front of the house. All in all a nice place on a lake and would recommend to relax and enjoy.

Relaxing and clean

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The owner was very quick to respond and helpful prior to check in with any questions or concerns we had. The gentleman who was prepping the house and walked us through everything was right next door and was extremely nice and readily available should you need anything or have questions. The house was clean, cozy, and relaxing and had everything you needed. Great Lake house especially for the price!!! We also rented the pontoon which was well worth it! Great swimming and fishing spots. We had a couple early on issues with it (running weird because weeds were in it and battery failed), but the man next door instantly fixed both and it was perfect since! I would recommend the boat if swimming is part of your plan. The pier area is weedy and has algae since your in the channel and by lily pads, but the boat will get you to some great open water and sand areas! We would definitely rent again and had an excellent, relaxing time.

Owner's Response: Happy to hear you had a great time. Turtle Cove is a quiet relaxing location on the lake. Sorry about the duck weed and lily pads, we seem to have more this year than usual. It seems to be clearing out since the cove is getting more use as the season progresses. Please feel free to join us again next year.

Great Time

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful time! The house was clean and the seven of us were very comfortable. A quiet cove, to relax and regroup after day trips to the surrounding area. Easy access to LaGrange, Sturgis, and other areas. Highly recommended.
