North Webster Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)

This is a classic two story cabin that has been remodeled. The upstairs is the sleeping area with two small bedrooms and a lofted sitting area and a fireplace. The downstairs opens onto a full deck with outstanding lake views and privacy. The property sits on the south end of Lake Papakeechie and backs up to the Tri-County game Preserve. This is the hilly end of the lake with heavily wooded lots that create a real sense of solitude.

Lake Papakeechie is a private lake that was created about 100 years ago by combining several smaller lakes. The lake is controlled by an owners' association and there is no public access to the lake. Motors of any kind are prohibited. This ensures a peaceful environment with excellent fishing and safe swimming. The lake is fed by artesian wells and water from the adjacent wetlands of the game preserve. The water is tested annually by the association and is consistently found to be extremely clean.

One is surrounded by nature here. The lake is home to diverse waterfoul and wildlife including swans, geese, ducks, great blue herons, beaver and a bald eagle. Hiking or hunting in the preserve is literally across the road. It feels secluded, yet the Lake Wawasee public boat launch is 5 minutes away.

The cabin is located at the bottom of a steep driveway and there are stone steps to the cabin and lakefront. This may be a consideration for those with mobility issues.

We recommend that you contact us by using the email link on this website to ensure the most dependable response time. We try to keep the calendar as current as possible so generally you can check availability here as well.

About The Owner

We are from Fort Wayne, Indiana. I am a contractor and my wife works in a non-profit. We enjoy outdoor activities, travel and family get-togethers. We have two sons but are now empty-nesters.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2008

Why The Owner chose North Webster

Our family has owned property on Papakeechie for over 40 years. We love the lake and the area. Our family cottage is next door to this cabin and we purchased the cabin to provide extra space when needed and to protect our investment.

What makes this cabin unique

This lake is a vacation for the body and the mind. There is no hustle and bustle here, no jet skis roaring by and no waves crashing to shore. The loudest noise we hear is the screams of children playing in the water.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to drop you a line, we really enjoyed our stay at the red cottage. The fishing was good as well as the weather,we were impressed with the cabin as well, hopefully we can get back next year for a longer stay. Thanks for the opportunity to enjoy your property.

Very Relaxing

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I came to the cabin for a "get away from life" trip. We definitely achieved our goal of relaxing. The weather was great, the cabin was great, the setting was great. It is very laid back, not much cell phone signal, no wifi, antenna tv. We loved it. there was plenty of room for more than just my husband and I but having this cabin to ourselves was great. Next time we are thinking of bringing some of the kids back. Will definitely want to come when weather is good for swimming.

Restful weekend

  • 4 of 5
Spent a nice restful weekend at the red house. We went with the hopes of peace and quiet and we definitely found it. The house is situated nicely on the hillside overlooking the lake that offers a nice view of the surrounding area in the morning sunshine.

The house was fine for us even though there was only 1 bathroom for 5 of us. All the amenities were there for our use and everything was placed back in it's original place when we were done.

I loved the original windows and wood of the upper floor which adds a lot of character to the original dwelling.

If we get another spare weekend I'd love to go back up there on a regular basis. Had no issues to speak of and was a fairly easy drive from the Indy area. Great communication with the owners as they were very hospitable and quick to respond to questions.

Very Nice & Peaceful

Our family really enjoyed our stay at the Red Cottage! We were especially grateful to be able to bring our newly adopted family dog. This was our first experience using Home Away. The listing description is accurate, the owner was very nice and provides an information sheet as well as their contact info. should you need anything (we didn't). Our kids (ages 14, 12 & 5) enjoyed swimming in the lake and fishing. There were floats & life jackets provided, as well as use of a row boat & paddleboat. The cottage had everything we needed, was very clean and nicely furnished. It was helpful that linens were provided. We felt it was a great value for the price. We all enjoyed the beautiful and peaceful surroundings.

Excellent property!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week, and loved every minute of it. We were greeted by the owners. Very friendly and helpful. The house and view are beautiful! Several others have posted concerns about the drive being steep, but we did not feel that it was that bad. It is what I would expect for a lakehouse. To keep it in perspective, we pulled our 18.5 foot bass boat down and up the drive every day. The house was very clean and well stocked. The fishing was good. The back deck is a great place to watch the sun rise. Nothing but positive to say from us!!! If you choose to rent this property, you will not be sorry!

Rustic, quiet, good place to decompress, was just what we needed. This is on the side of a steep hill, sooo... not recommended for toddlers or the elderly. For everyone else this is the quintessential lakehouse, lots of peace and quiet, wildlife abounds and good fishing.
