We love coming to the lake to get away! It's always a relaxing experience and it provides us a haven of rest from the demands of our busy careers. We have a large family and they, too, have come to appreciate the lake cottage as a place to come and fish, swim, lay out on the beach or relax by the campfire.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2008

Growing up as a young girl, some of my wife's earliest memories were coming to Big Turkey Lake to her grandparent's cottage, which was located just down the road from our current vacation rental. When there was an opportunity to purchase this property, we decided to continue the tradition for our own family and provide them with some of the same memories that have been cherished over the years. Big Turkey Lake, located in Steuben County in northeast Indiana, is one of the numerous lakes in this area, and is located within reasonable driving distance from many large cities in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Illinois.

Our cottage is much larger than the average vacation rental and can easily accommodate a large family or a large group of up to 10 or 12 people. It is perfect for family reunions, church or business planning meetings, retreats, 'girl's' or 'guy's' weekend away or just a romantic get away for two. It is very close to Angola and Auburn (both about 25 minutes away) where you can find most of the necessary conveniences (grocery, hardware, restaurants, movie entertainment, etc.). It is within a reasonable driving distance (2 to 3 hours) from major cities like Indianapolis, Detroit and Chicago. Major medical services can be found in Ft. Wayne, about 45 minutes away.

We met some old college friends we hadn't seen since our weddings. 10 years later, we each have four kids. Our kids had a blast making new friends and the adults really enjoyed catching up! The house was perfect for our two families. Kitchen was well stocked, nice amount of space for the kids to play since we had such nasty weather the whole time. Love the remodeling and décor ? Very homey feeling. Would love to come back and experience all that the lake has to offer when the weather has improved. Also, thank you for providing such a nice house that is solo affordable!!

The cottage is beautifully decorated, updated appliances and furniture make for a very pleasant stay!
Only complaint was too soft water and low water pressure in showers, and I personally MISSED my hand held shower! We had fun all day everyday with various family members taking turns staying with us!

Grandparent and Grandsons get away.

This was without a doubt one of the cleanest places I ever rented. The price was so reasonable when compared to others. The owners were very prompt with refund of deposit. I loved the decoration in the house and their chose of colors, pictures, etc was very up-to-date and calming.

My husband and I took our two grandson's there for a short fishing trip. We only used one bedroom (Aloha room) since in was set up with bunk beds and queen size bed. How thoughtful for family vacations. There is ample seating, sleeping and cooking room. I would recommend to families traveling together and need space.

My grandsons were not disappointed because they caught blue gill and bass right off the dock. Took the paddle boat out for a small ride.

Special thanks to the owners for sharing this wonderful place.
