150' lake front x 300ft deep. Dead end street safe for children and walking, Back Lot for parking cars and boat trailers.

Located near many fun family activities!!!

Families, Church Retreats, and Businesses: The cottage is perfect for gatherings of families, friends, church retreats, and business team building events that, after the day’s activities, would like to retreat back to their very own comforts of a warm and cozy cottage to watch movies, relax, or snuggle by the fireplace.

Take time to visit the Buffalo Preserve. You can also visit an award winning winery with excellent red and white wines available for tasting and purchase. If cars are your interest, you may enjoy two local speedways. You could also take a quick 30-minute drive and enjoy the Auburn, Cord, Duesenberg Museum which houses classic vintage automobiles from the early 1900's up to WW II era vehicles. Or visit the NATMUS Museum which houses vehicles from the post war years. Or visit another flavor of museum --- the Hoosier Air Museum (operated by the Hoosier Warbirds) at the DeKalb County Airport which features aircraft from throughout the history of aviation. Autumn offers an exceptional time...

The Days Events: The children will love exploring the surrounding land, the lakes edge, catching frogs and fish, while you relax in a chair watching with a hot cup of coffee. Latter the kids will go swimming, play on the raft, use the paddle boat, canoe, while you play along with them or take a nap. After lunch is a great time to get in your motor boat and water ski, water tube, hang out at the sand bar, or dock up to the 4h fair grounds to hike. That evening while the sun sets the fire pit is the place to be. Roasting smores, telling stories, enjoying each others company, being warmed by the fire as the children start to realize they are tire. Tuck them in and it is your time to catch up with your honey. How do I know this, I have a lovely wife and triplet children age 8. We have enjoyed this cottage for the last 8 years.

Local and Distant Attractions : I personally want every Family, Mother, Father, Child, and Grand Parent to get the most out of their vacation and dollar. Searching the web can still be a lengthy task with all of the links and pop ups so...We will send out a package of the local attractions (5 to 20 min drive) and not so local (20 min to 1 hour) attractions. Here are a few:

Hi, I am Steve Just, Mechanical Engineer from Purdue University. I was born, raised, and my family lives in Fort Wayne, Indiana. My wife, Amy, and I have 3 children (triplets) age 14 now. We have been married for 19 years and dated in high school and through college. We have a miniature schnauzer named Lucy Lick’ems. Our children love to play at the lake cottage and have for years ever since they were 1 years of age. I pride myself on communicating and answering yours and your family’s questions as soon as possible. We are the owners, so you are not working though a 3rd party. Please feel free to call me anytime. There are so many properties I am sure you have looked at on line, so let me help you where I can. I am sure your family will appreciate you taking the time to pull this together, it is not easy. Let me help you by making this process as easy as possible. Thanks, Steve Just.

Steve or Amy Just purchased this cottage in 2006

We choose this property, because the land is spacious with most lake fronts having 75 feet frontage, so you have more privacy then cottages that are spaced closer to one another. We love the town of Angola. The neighbors are nice, the street is quite, the dead end street is safe for little ones and pets, and the cottage is large enough for a good sized family and friends.

FALL FAMILY GATHERING

  • 5 of 5
Our family (grandparents,children,grandchildren) met here for a fall weekend. The house was well maintained, clean and provided us with every amenity imaginable. The open floor plan allowed the little ones to enjoy themselves in a safe environment. The owners were very easy to work with, very accommodating, and made us feel welcomed. We had a great time despite the foul weather and imagine the summer time would be a real treat with the use of the lake and all the nearby outdoor attractions.

Owner's Response: It is important to us to communicate clearly and answer every question, so renters understand what they are getting for their dollar. It is a value thing and we understand. We want to meet expectations, but if we can not, we recommend other places that may suite their needs. We call right away to answer all questions and respond in email, so family plans can move forward with or without us. We were booked solid 2008 June, July, Aug and half Sept, so we must be doing something right. Our prices are the same as last year. I am a Mechanical Engineer, family of 5 with 3 children under 10, so I can relate to the average Joe or JoAnne... Just call ... Thanks

FAMILY VACATION AT THE LAKES

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our family vacation. Steve was very easy to work with, and keeps the house and yard nice. The kids, big and little, loved the paddle boat, swing, fire pit, many picnic tables, and big yard to play in. The sand under the big Weeping Willow tree was really good for the little kids, since the swimming is not ideal. Flotation toys are good to bring so you can float out farther. Our family enjoys skiing, so being on third basin, was perfect for them. Thanks Steve for letting us use your lake home, we hope to visit you again next year.

VACATION 2013

  • 5 of 5
I take my family to the lake every year for a week but this was the first time we stayed at this cottage. I have plenty of experience with renting cottages at the lake and I'm happy to say this place is second to none. Very large interior with great cottage décor. Plenty of room inside and out to feed family and friends that come up for a day. I take my own boat and wave runners but we did use the paddle boat a few times. If you don't have a boat, this has everything you need. In fact if you take up a trolling motor and battery for the fishing boat you'd really be set to explore the lake. All amenities were exactly as listed and there was nothing the kitchen didn't have. Mr. Just will make things very easy when it comes time for your vacation. I received an email that had a great map to send to that family and other information and hints to make your trip perfect. What a great view. Great time. The kids didn't want to leave. Of course me either.

GREAT, RELAXING VACATION

  • 5 of 5
What an enjoyable vacation. The cottage was 50 feet from the water with a great view of the lake from the large front windows. It was very clean and well maintained. There was plenty of room and the website pictures were current and accurate.
The area was very quiet and relaxing but close to town too. We found everything that we needed in nearby Angola.
You will also find that the owner is very dedicated in making sure that you have an enjoyable vacation. We had a great time.

VACATION AT CROOKED LAKE

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed our stay at Crooked Lake this year. The house was roomy and appliances were good for cooking family meals. The view from the porch was very nice! Appreciated the fire pit, paddle boat and row boat. The dock was is good condition. Can get to Angola easily and quickly. We would recommend this home for a family vacation with adults and children.

NICE PLACE TO STAY

  • 4 of 5
We rented for the first time this summer and really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was easy to find and in the "calm" 3rd basin of Crooked Lake. It has a lovely backyard, and we enjoyed our time using the back patio. The cottage was clean with plenty of room for our family. We would stay again!

Ski: Winter Time Cross Country Ski - Pokagon State Park. My family does it 2 times every winter. It is tradition for us. We Love it. The State Park is huge with many nature trails and hills. We also take our sleds, because there are big hills with picnic areas with shelters to build a fire. Oh and the legendary Pokagon State Park Toboggan Run. You have to do it. It is great FUN!
