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.

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

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.

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.

Red Cottage

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 23, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
We stayed at the Red Cottage for a week in July. Liked it so much we went back for a week in October.
The VRBO listing and previous Reviews are accurate.
The owners and manager are most pleasant and accommodating.
The Cost / Enjoyment ratio is very favorable
Do give credence to “consideration for those with mobility issues”. It's all steep terrain.
Yes, the driveway is an issue, but improvements are on the way for 2014
We didn't fish all that hard, a few hours on several days. We cleaned 124 hand size Red Ear in July and cleaned 62 Blue Gill in October.
We enjoyed ourselves, we went back, and probably will go back again.

August Getaway

Very clean, updated and well maintained. Serene, peaceful, relaxing and great view. Manager nearby is very cordial and helpful if needed. It is on a hillside. No yard for children. And, a steep drive, as others have mentioned. But for the 'escape', relaxation and renewal we were looking for it was great. Several good 'eats' on waterways is the Channel Marker, and at the Oakwood Inn, both in Syracuse. Sunsets are wonderful from pier or paddle boat!

Sooo lovely and private

I loved this cottage. It has a cabin feel but not musty. There are two parking areas. One on top where you must carry everything down a steep, gravel drive. The second is next to the home, down the steep drive. I only have front wheel drive on my minivan and I made it back up on my second try. It is scary if you are a city person. Even after parking on the lower level there are still stone steps to the front door. Also since it is two stories there is a steep, wood stairs inside. My bedroom was the twin bed room, it was so comfortable. I could have spent all my time there looking at the trees and lake. A double bed is in a room I had to go thru to leave my bedroom and another double in the TV room. My daughter (20) loved the loft with a ladder to get up. She was very alone but could hear and see the activity below. I know it sounds bad with the parking but It is a delight when you get settled. We paddle boated (provided) for hours on the calm empty lake looking at birds. We read on the shaded deck. It was perfect for decompressing. Tuesday we had a 30 min. drive to flea market at Shipshanawa. There is a gas grill to cook on plus a clean modern kitchen with a washer /dryer. For TV, bring DVD's or rent from CVS redbox in Syracuse. Bring bug spray for the evening since you are in a forest of Shagbark Hickories and Black Walnut trees. Also binoculars for watching wild life. The owners are so nice and trusting. They live at the only house you can see which is next door. The two homes share the driveway loop. I will so be back (but not in the snow). Though I'm never going to use the rope swing into the water; much too old.

Awesome family mini-vacation

Our family (six adults) spent three wonderful days at the cabin. Everything was great--the cabin was clean, cozy, and comfortable. We enjoyed the sunrises each day, and the dogs loved the water! We played games, went for rides in the row boat, and took walks around the neighborhood. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us and our canine buddies!! We definitely want to visit again, perhaps for a little longer next time.
