Property Details

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, 10 Sleeps

**Please click Check Calendar for availability**

This is a family cottage on the rural eastern side of Indian

Lake. In 2007, the cottage was built replacing the

original "Zettler Cottage" built 1927. It is just south of

O'Connor's Point, near the former site of O'Connor's Landing, and

can be reached via the Covered Bridge which crosses the south fork of

the Little Miami River. The lake is the headwaters for the Great

Miami River.

It rests along 6000 acre Indian Lake facing west, green space to the north, and

farm land with a network of country roads behind it for an early

morning jog, walk, or trip on bikes during wonderful sunrises to the

red covered bridge, just 1.5 miles away. Great lake and sunset

views will be enjoyed from the lakefront covered porch and sunny patio.

It is fully furnished. Four bedrooms and three and a half

baths means a very comfortable stay for 8-10 people. Two of the

bedrooms have private baths and two of the bedrooms share a Jack-and-

Jill bath. A large recreation room is above garage with a flat panel TV. The main family room has a new 60" TV and the bedrooms have TV's as well. The

kitchen has granite counter tops, an island, wet bar, and

bead-board cabinetry.

Indian Lake is a fisherman and boater's paradise. Fishing,

boating, tubing, swimming, and water skiing are all permitted on the

lake. There is extra parking for cars, boats and boat trailers right next to the cottage.

Although summer is fun in the sun, many locals regard the fall

as the best time of year, thanks to the tranquility along with the

gorgeous fall foliage. For the winter, it is located 15 minutes

from Mad River Mountain Ski Resort and there is plenty of room for

snowmobiling. With spring comes the fisherman and many participate

in the lake's numerous bass tournaments. Saugeye, a fish similar to

walleye, are also sought after and have gained the lake national

Zettler Cottage - waterfront with sunset view

GLORIOUS! – Shout it from the rooftops

  • 5 of 5
As a person who has organized and attended at least 20 weekend retreats in the past 5 years, I can honestly say that hands down, this was the best location I have ever been to. From the homey atmosphere to the incredible setting, there are so many reasons why we will come back as often as they will have us.

They say it sleeps 10, but they don’t tell you just how comfortably. King size beds with soft foam mattress toppers throughout the place. Big flat screen TV’s with satellite in every room. Leather seating, comfortable couches, ample floor space, 3.5 bathrooms, completely supplied kitchen (Pots, Pans, blender, griddle, gas grill, all manners of glasses and dishes, even a crockpot!) these are just a few of the reasons why Zettler Cottage feels like home.

We loved the large table that comfortably seats 10. It made sharing our meals together just that much better. We also enjoyed the speaker system built into the walls of every shared area, with individual volume controls (including the outside patio/porch). The free wi-fi, HD cable, and satellite radio. The granite countertops were also a great feature, as well as the double-car garage where we could keep our vehicles away from the snow.

As a last thought, I wanted to add that Zettler Cottage is very kid-friendly. There are games and coloring/art supplies throughout the house. A bundle of outdoor toys was found in the garage, along with a pack-and-play. The bonus room above the garage (that feels much like a theater style basement area) had a big, sturdy wooden children’s table with matching chair set.

There is really too much to write down in the space provided. If I had to sum it up, I would say: We would like to come back every year. Check it out for yourself.

To describe this house as a rental is a huge injustice. This is a family home and we were very pleased to be guests there for a week. Words don't do it justice!
