About Dan & Liz Auger

We moved to Indiana from England in 2001. We enjoy taking family vacations especially by a lake or the beach.

Dan & Liz Auger purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Dan & Liz Auger chose Angola

We picked this property because of the history in the area, the beautiful setting and the great location on the lake. This is the original home built on the property and has been lovingly maintained and updated throughout the years, so you get the sense of time standing still with the convenience of modern utilities.

What makes this cottage unique

The big trees and beautiful lake views make it a very peaceful spot. The awesome sunsets can be enjoyed both outdoors on the patio and indoors from the picture windows.

Although secluded and peaceful, there are also many amenities available for those days when you want to venture out to civilization...Angola and Pokagon State Park are 15 minutes away, downtown Fort Wayne is 45 minutes, and downtown Chicago is 2.5 hrs drive.

Cleanest rental home we've ever stayed in! Dan and Liz are so accommodating. If you have any questions or problems they are immediately available to assist you. This is the third year we've stayed here and we can't recommend it enough. The new dock is a wonderful upgrade! My only complaint is I never met my Fitbit goal!😉�😝�

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your holiday and like our home. Hope to see you again next year. Our cleaning staff are brilliant and so very helpful too. Perhaps if we had made the dock longer, we could have helped with your Fitbit goal!

We have vacationed in this lake home the last 3 years and love it. The new pier that the owner recently put it is excellent! Perfect for docking and lots of room to sunbathe. Already have next summer booked!

Love the location of the house.

  • 5 of 5

This was the 3rd year we have rented the house. This was the first year that the people from the week before left food in the fridge and we wondered if the cleaning service should have taken it out. We also found used bars of soap in both showers making us wonder how well or if it had been cleaned,and there were several small towels on top of the agitator of the washer. We really love this house and as I said before this is the first time this has happened. Overall we all enjoyed the week!
