Overview

Indiana Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2BR, 2BA, Access to Large deck over water, 1 Boatlift, 1 Canoe

VRBO #706543 (Same as vrbo #93374)

The BayView home is booked for 2015 and no longer is being used as a vacation rental home after this year. We have a BEAUTIFUL 2 level bedroom apartment/condo located just across the drive that sleeps 4 - 6.

Description of VRBO #706543 ( and #93374):

BEAUTIFUL 2 Level Condo, 2 Bedroom, 2 Baths, Full Kitchen and more! One boat lift and a huge deck over the water to enjoy just across the drive from this vacation rental. Plus 1 Canoe!

While this condo is not waterfront, there is so much to share about this beautifully designed and decorated condo nestled in a quiet residential area near the water. This vacation property is located on a gravel loop drive so it is not on a main highway or road. Great area for taking walks or riding bikes out into the country. It is an easy 2.5 mile drive to Indiana Beach Amusement Park. About 12 minute drive to downtown Monticello. You have Monon Bay, Lake Shafer and Lake Freeman as well to enjoy fishing, swimming, sun bathing, boat cruising, skiing, and tubing on! Much to do in the area.

As you arrive to the property, it isn't going to look like too much from the outside since it is located in a huge tan shed building. But don't let that discourage you one bit. The owners have added a nice paved parking area, shrubs and a patio. The patio has a picnic table with umbrella, gas grill and a small fire pit for your enjoyment. There is a lawn area as well next to the patio. (No fenced in area) Parking is uncovered on concrete pad. Plenty of room for 2 vehicles and a boat trailer. If you need further parking, just inquire with your property contact, Rachel.

The owners live across the drive in the waterfront home we have rented for about 10 years (3834). This has a HUGE deck over the water, 1 boat lift underneath and 1 canoe for your use. (See Photos Included) The owners welcome our guests that rent the condo to use these added features on their property! So, anytime you want to spend some time on the deck over the water or bring your own boat or rent one from Lake Shafer Boat Rentals, you have a large deck and slip to use! Bring your own life jackets. This is all located right across the drive from your vacation rental.

Now it's time to enter the condo! The owners took a lot of time in coming up with the best design and decor for the space. You enter into the foyer which either takes you to the upstairs or leads you into the kitchen/dining area. (See Photos) Plenty of storage and cabinets in the fully equipped kitchen. Water/Ice dispenser on fridge door, deep 2 bay kitchen sink, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker, blender, crockpot, bakeware, pots, pans and utensils.

Central AC/Heating.

Open Floor Plan on the main floor. As you walk through your dining/kitchen area, you enter the living room which also has access to one bathroom and utility room. Living room has couch, loveseat and rocker/recliner, LARGE HD 3D Flat Screen with fantastic cable package. Xfinity WIFI access as well for our guests. Main Level Bathroom has single shower, toilet and sink/vanity. Utility Room has stack HE washer/dryer.

Upstairs has 1 Master Bedroom with Queen Size Bed and 2nd bedroom has 2 twin size beds. Both bedrooms have TVs as well, dressers and an adjoining closet. Upstairs bathroom has a full size tub/shower combo, double vanity, cabinets and toilet. At the top of the stairs is a nice open area with a taller mirror. There are skylights in both bedrooms with the option to pull the blinds over.

We provide starter supplies at all our vacation rentals. Starter shampoos, soaps and lotions in both bathrooms. 1 Roll of Paper Towel, 1 Roll of Toilet Paper in each bathroom, 1 packet of DeCaf and 1 Packet of Regular coffee with sugars/cremes, starter laundry detergent, a few dishwasher tablets.

We also provide your linens. Bath towels and wash cloths in both bathrooms. Kitchen towels/cloths included. 1 Set of bed linens per bed including a set for the Aerobed.

This condo currently sleeps 4 - 6. It sleeps 4 in beds and owners will allow up to 2 more on a blow up Aerobed mattress in the living room. There is an added fee per person over 4.

2015 Pricing for 4 people. $20/nt per extra person up to 6 Maximum Occupancy.

$150/nt plus fees.

$895/wk plus fees.

$15/nt per extra person up to 6 Maximum Occupancy.

THE MONON BAY BRIDGE HAS BEEN RAISED SO MOST BOATS WILL FIT UNDER BRIDGE NOW TO ACCESS LAKE SHAFER! The Monon Bay extends for several miles and is all designated as a No Wake Area. This is great for canoeing and swimming. All SEASONS ARE QUITE BEAUTIFUL HERE.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Pat said,

We really did enjoy your house. You certainly tried to provide everything we would need. The dock, the canoe and the decks are outstanding. What beautiful views! ( But where were the fish?) The younger 2 liked the yard a lot and your deer.

We usually go to Hilton Head, The Outer Banks, or Destin so this was a totally different experience. It was a lot more casual than usual which was nice.

The closeness of Monticello... would make long weekends possible...

I'll get back with some photos.

I appreciate how quickly you responded each time . The process was easy, and efficient. Thank you for your help Rachel. -2009





Bud and Barb said,

Dear Rachel,

As last year, the stay was wonderful and even more relaxing as we got to see friends and have friends visit. We did use the canoe and that was a welcomed addition. You have not missed anything in making a vacation easy and relaxing by providing all the needs, conveniences and more, than one would find at home. The location and setting is just icing on the cake.



You can also anticipate us returning next year as we look at a schedules in the very near future.

Best personal regards, -2009





Dorothy said,

We had a great time! The deck was awesome to sit on in the morning and drink coffee. We ate outside every night - lot's of room and no bugs or flies to bother us! The king size bed was great and there was a TV and DVD player in every room. The location was good and fairly close to everything you needed. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Everything was very clean. -2009





David said,

Erica said,

This place was amazing! Everything we needed was there and plenty of room for everyone to sleep, relax, and enjoy. The deck areas were huge and we used them the entire weekend. We will definitely be back and recommend to anyone looking to spend a weekend in Monticello.

Awesome Place EVER

  • 5 of 5

Staying at BayView Cottage was awesome!! I and my friends really enjoyed the place. The place is not only clean but also have everything we need, from aluminum foil to whatever you think. The most satisfied thing from this place was Rachel.

She was really KIND and she handled everything I curious about immediately. I will definitely be back again this summer to see another view of summer. I strongly recommend this place!!

Absolutely wonderful stay in the house. We loved the decks, and it was a great place to spend the weekend. The swimming was great, and the canoe was a wonderful addition. The kitchen was great and had everything you needed and more. This was the best vacation house we've had in years! We will definitely be returning!
