About the Property

Three Bedroom Waterfront Cottage On Desirable Seminole Island at Indian Lake

This darling lakefront cottage exudes original character inside and out. Located in a prime spot about an hour from Columbus or Dayton, it's easy to get here (but leaving is so hard!).

Once inside, you enter a bright sunroom/dining area. An original, rustic stone fireplace is the focal point of the centrally located family room. Off the family room are two bedrooms - two twin beds in one, and a cozy queen bed in the other. Those agile enough can climb the attic stairs to a third bedroom with four twin beds.

Location

Located on a 5,800 acre freshwater lake, this charming cottage overlooks the water and Pew Island, a state park with wooded walking trails and a public boat ramp. Ride a bike or walk a short distance to Cranberries Resort, one of several good restaurants and bars accessible by land or water. The possibilities for adventure seekers are endless, from water sports to bike riding. Serenity seekers will enjoy sunning on one of the decks, quietly watching fish jump, otters swim, squirrels play, and the many species of birds in the trees. Make the most of your time here - Island time is slower, but it always goes too fast.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Growing up in Columbus, my husband visited Indian Lake as a child and vowed that someday he would make family memories here with our children too.

Why the Owner Chose Huntsville, OH, USA:
As antique lovers we instantly fell in love with the character inside this cottage. It really wasn't a question of "should we buy it", but more like, "how could we NOT buy it?" We feel so fortunate to have stumbled upon our fairytale cottage..

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The house is on the water, facing Pew Island State Park, which safeguards it from the wind that open-water cottages endure. We love watching boats and wildlife go by right off the deck, and the open water beyond Pew Island over the trees and to our right. The location is perfect, allowing us to fish, swim, kayak, walk to Cranberries restaurant, and enjoy the trails on Pew Island, It's a get-away, but not too far from civilization. If you choose, there is also a golf cart available for rent - a popular mode of transportation on the island. Wifi, Apple TV and Cable are accessible on a flat screen TV in the family room, as well as board games for your entertainment.
