About Mike Messmer
We have been residents at Lake Wawasee since 1987.
Mike Messmer purchased this cottage in 1997
Why Mike Messmer chose Syracuse Lake
We wanted a weekend get-away for fun and relaxation for our family. Ideally, with good fishing, sailing, boating, and water sports. With over 3000 acres, Lake Wawasee offers it all.
There is plenty of room to sail, jet ski, or water ski. And on the weekdays, it seems you have the entire lake to yourself.
The water is very clean and clear. Lake Wawasee is located at a high elevation with limited run off into the lake.
We liked having picnics and hanging out at the sand bar. Boat-in-worship on Sunday mornings is a delight.
Also, the lake offers the convenience of 3 marinas and 3 restaurants, which are accessible from the lake.
What makes this cottage unique
Quiet private drive. No stairs to climb for access to the lake. The screened porch with rocking chairs is always cool and comfortable. Nice swim area with sandy lake bottom.
