  • Our 3rd visit for a family reunion and the place gets better every time! Even had a wedding.

    "We've stayed in several rental houses and cabins for our 25-30 person, week-long gathering. We love this place best so keep coming back. Why? For one, the FULLY equipped kitchen. It's huge (think restaurant kitchen) with giant pots, pans, bowls, etc to cook & clean up for a big group. Lots of large, open rooms and bedrooms so we never have to worry about our headcount, even when there were 38 of us. The grounds offer beautiful scenery with LOTS of space, all to our selves. Even a fish pond and golf holes. Upon every return, we find the owners Dave & Wendy (who are always very nice & helpful) have added even more amenities. We rent the main lodge and the smaller Blanche house on opposite sides of a large parking lot that can fit all our vehicles. When things get too chaotic and noisy at the main lodge, it's so nice to simply walk across the parking lot to my bedroom in the always-peaceful Blanche house. Since we had a wedding this year, with many extra overnight guests, we also rented the Grand Lodge with its very upscale "rustic" look. Had the wedding in the yard of the Grand Lodge with lovely woods for a backdrop. Had the reception in a building across the parking lot from the Grand Lodge. Wendy had staged it for a reception dinner to give those planning the reception some ideas. Then they transformed it. REALLY nice. A local restaurant supplied a buffet dinner. Elk Ridge Ranch is close to French Lick with lots of gambling & activities for those interested. Some tried mountain biking this year."

  • Home away from home

    "Our family had an excellent time during our week-long stay at the Cottage. The house was extremely clean, well organized. As a family of four we didn't test the house to the full capacity, but there was plenty of room for us to spend time together and to have daily quiet time where we didn't disturb each other... the girls used the upper level nooks as their fortresses; my wife and I were able to hang out in the evenings without concern of disturbing the girls while they tried to sleep. While it seems small on the outside, there was plenty of room and we greatly enjoyed the house. We enjoyed walks around the neighborhood; found a tree swing at the bank of the Ohio River and took numerous walks along the banks of the Ohio River collecting rocks, finding shells and learning how to skip rocks. The house is extremely close to the Creation Museum and was a relatively easy drive to the Ark Encounter. We are convinced that when we come back, we will plan to stay at the Cottage!"

  • The House, The Beach, The View!

    "What a wonderful place to spend a vacation! My family (6 adults and one dog) recently spent a week at this beautiful cottage on Lake Michigan. We also had friends from Chicago, a family with two grade-school aged kids, come visit us for a day to go to the beach. We've been visiting southwest Michigan for about 15 years now, and although we had never stayed in Michiana, we will certainly be back. Hopefully to this house, because it has so much to offer. First, it is bigger than it looks - with four bedrooms and two baths everyone had their own space. There were also two common living areas - the front living room and the back family room/porch - plus a huge dining room, well-appointed kitchen, and the front deck, where we spent most of our time. Yes, the deck overlooks Lake Michigan. Morning, afternoon, and sunset it was our favorite place to be. There are lake views available from multiple rooms inside the beautifully decorated house, too. Michiana is a beautiful place. The beach is clean and uncrowded, although there are small rocks at the shoreline so be sure to bring beach shoes. We were happy to walk with our dog or ride the bikes (3 were provided) along Lake Shore Drive, which stretches for miles along the shore with a view of the lake. Our friends' kids loved the beach, and their parents loved how small and safe it was. Dogs are allowed on the beach before 11 a.m. and after 5 p.m., which was a treat as most local beaches do not allow dogs. The owners also provided use of a 2-person kayak, which was great fun. We also took several short trips to New Buffalo, Michigan City, and Sawyer to shop and dine out. I can't say enough about how pleasant it was to work with the owner. Anne made it easy to book, answered all of our questions about the house quickly, and was there to greet us on our arrival. She was so friendly and was just a lovely person. If you are looking for a place to spend some time getting away from it all, I must recommend this house. I wish we were headed back again next week!"
