We have been married for 28 years, have been blessed with 4 sons, two lovely daughters-in-law and 2 adorable grandchildren. We were both raised by taking a family vacation to the Lake every summer...both being on Lake Wawasee for years. About 16 years ago we started renting in the Angola area and absolutely loved what all Angola has to offer...not only the beautiful lakes, but Pokagon State park, shopping, dining and grocery stores. When decorating this cottage, we have used some of Grandpa's stuff from Lake Wawasee when he had a cottage. See if you can pick them out. Such a neat way to keep a lake legacy going. We hope to create many memories with our family and are so hoping you do the same with your family.

Kelli Bucher purchased this cottage in 2013

While out on a Pontoon ride with some friends of ours, we came across this lovely property. We love the setting this is in. Quiet cul-de-sac with nice homes, plenty of parking, large yards (front and back), and most of all the lake front view with it's sandy beach and wonderful pier space. The inside fits our family well, as it has 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths. Loved that it had two family rooms and the 3 car garage was a hit as our boys are turning this into a man-cave, rec room.

GREAT FAMILY TIME!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I rented this home for Memorial Day weekend. We wanted to get our family together away from home for some quality family time. I could not have chosen a better place. This house is gorgeous and very roomy. We could have family time and individual quiet time all in the same house. My grandchildren loved the lake at the back of the property. They played in the water all weekend, from splashing in the water to paddling the boat provided with the rental property. My daughter and I sat near them on a swing as we watch them play. They also enjoyed the swing set and the many games that were in the garage as they played in the grass between the house and the lake.
My husband favorite place all weekend was in a patio chair on the deck that covered the entire back of the house. He sat and read from his book enjoying the beautiful scene and breeze. My daughters, sisters and I enjoyed cooking meals together in the larger and equipped kitchen. The house has 3 televisions set with DVD player which we rarely used, ping pong table, and a spacious layout for a 5 bedroom house. The weekend was great. I would definitely rent this house again.
We also visited the nearby town for shopping. There is a Wal-mart, Meijer’s, and outlet mall near the house. The weekend we were there the mall was having a side walk sale, which we took advantage of. There also were many other things to do but we were content at the house and the lake.
The renting process was easy and quick. The owners were very pleasant each time we communicated. Customer service is a big thing with me and theirs was great. I would recommend this home to everyone I knew who was looking for a vacation rental.

EXCELLENT!!

  • 5 of 5
This rental exceeded our expectations! We were a group of 4 adults and 6 young kids, ages 2 - 5. The sleeping spaces were spacious and well laid out. Plenty of beds so every one could have their own areas and stretch out at night. The bonus room upstairs was perfect for the kids to run and play in, since the weather was COLD when we were there. I thought the kitchen would be too small from the photos, but it wasn't at all.

The owners have done a great job decorating the house to make it feel fresh and up-to-date. Everything we needed in the kitchen was there, including dish towels, pots, pans, pizza tray, etc. There were even games, books for the kids, crayons and coloring books, etc. We didn't use the garage space b/c it was so cold, but also lots of room to play in there, too, with couches, a ping pong table, etc. AND an extra fridge, which was helpful for us!

Only one suggestion would be that if you have young kids that nap - there really aren't any rooms that have curtains that will block the light out during the day - you may need to get creative.

Highly recommended!!

AMAZING WINTER GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had a perfect winter getaway! This cottage is the ideal spot to enjoy the Indiana winter. With Pokagon State Park so close we enjoyed snowshoeing the trails and later the toboggan run. The cottage itself has a great layout and is wonderfully decorated. All of the bedrooms are wonderful in their size and comfort. The bonus room above the garage was a perfect location for all of the kids to crash and watch movies. While some cottages squeeze people in to hit their target number of guests, this cottage allowed for all of us to enjoy the space without that cramped in feeling. Kelli was great to work with and graciously answered all of our pre-trip questions. The only downside was that we didn't get snowed in and get to stay a few more days!

FAMILY THANKSGIVING VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We rented this great lake home for Thanksgiving week and could not have had a better time together! There was plenty of room for everyone and the spacious living room and kitchen were perfect for gathering for meals and family time. I never heard I'm bored once from the grandchildren because they had their own kingdom in the bonus room upstairs and many games of pingpong in the garage were played. Plenty of room to bake and cook too with a very well stocked kitchen. The spacious living room gave way our to xbox dance party and karoake for family time in the evenings. Couldn't have been more pleased.

Map

Our Snow Lake cottage is 5 minutes to entrance of Pokagon State Park. Pokagon is a perfect spot to visit whether you want to hike or do the Toboggan run during the winter months. Just minutes to Fremont Outlet mall and Satek Winery. Downtown Angola and it's quaint shops are only 15 minutes away. Want to golf? Several golf courses within 15 minutes. How about your hunger pains...Dave's Lake Shack is around the corner (must be 21), Timbuktoo's is 5 minutes away. And of course, the well-respected 4 Corners is around 6 miles from our home. 4 Corners has it all...pizza, Acupulca Grill, Mad Anthony's Brewing Company, Yo-yo's yogurt and the ever-famous Tom's Donuts. Want fast food, Applebee's, or BWW's? Angola is a quick ten minute drive for all of your eating tastes. Try Samantha's or Village Kitchen for breakfast and Caruso's for a great Italian dinner. Cooking in is easy when you have Meijer's, Walmart and Aldi's close by. And let's not forget Harger's meat market for your grilling needs on our gas grill. Need gas for your boat...gas station just up the road by the outlet mall.
