Loch Sechrist Cottage is a brand new (2010) home on Sechrist lake part of the Barbee chain of lakes. Fantastic boating and swimming.
The property is was landscaped in 2010. Everything in this modern house is new. Ideal for families. The house has 3 floors of living space. Great for entertaining and socializing. Sechrist is fed by spring water and has a sandy bottom. In our opinion it has the clearest water of the other lakes in the Barbee chain. In front of the house there is a private sandy beach. The water is shallow so ideal for children.

I am from Scotland and first came to this part of Indiana when I was 18 as a student working at a local summer camp. I came back many times for a vacation. I loved the lakes and so I bought a place that I , my family and friends can enjoy. I have travelled the World but here I can relax and enjoy the lake.
