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 Indiana

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.

Great time, great location. Grandkid friendly.

  • 4 of 5

What a great way to relax for a week. Could have been a little cleaner inside and out. Lawn maintenance very poor. High weeds and grass. Expected it to get mowed but it didn't. I think owners are being taken advantage of by lawn service.

We would return.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed our lake house. The cell service certainly can be spotty. There is a phone available for our guests and full WiFi service too.

We had a great time! The cottage is as advertised. Very clean, nicely appointed with all you'd want for a week (or more) at the Lake. Well equipped kitchen with all you'd likely need. The bedrooms were nice and slept the advertised 9 people. Two full bathrooms were a plus. There is a very nice patio area with plenty of chairs and tables. The cottage is on a very flat lot and only steps from the water. The dock handled my 17' fish/ski boat along with the pontoon we rented for the week. The lake in front of the cottage is pretty shallow with a sandy/muck bottom that made swimming....especially for little one, very nice. Don't be put off by the single AC wall unit. It did a good job of cooling the entire cottage. Plenty of fans to move the air around as well. The cottage was very clean when we arrived and the owners were very attentive and responsive with single issue that came up during our week. A very nice cottage allowing for a wonderful week at the Lake. I can't believe how anyone would not enjoy it as much as my family did.
