Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Breathtaking Waterfront View

After the sunset, possible activities include relaxing around the firepit, eating toasted marshmallows, and gazing at the stars!

Recently renovated in 2010, this home includes a dramatic lakeroom with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Indian Lake, as well as a complete kitchen. Sleeping accommodations consist of 3 bedrooms and a sleeper sofa, plus 1 1/2 baths. This home can accommodate 8 guests.

We were looking for a place on the lake to celebrate Mom's 75th birthday. This house was just what we were looking for! It was well stocked with things that we needed and the layout was perfect. It says that it sleeps 8 but we were able to put down some air mattresses to accomadate the family. The kids enjoyed fishing and we were able to tube right in the area near the house so this worked out great as well. The house was clean upon our arrival and met pretty much all of our needs. We didn't leave the house to explore what was out there but have been to the lake before and pretty much what they say is around, is around. I would definitely recommend this house to those who enjoy a lake view with awesome sunsets! We made some new memories and hope to make more in the future at Virgil's Cottage! Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Owner's Response: It was wonderful meeting you and the family for your Fourth of July week stay! I hope the fireworks around the lake added to the birthday celebration for your Mom. Fishing, tubing, boating, grilling... you did it all! We look forward to seeing you next time, where we can continue as we left off, sharing drinks, fun times, and good conversation as neighbors... lakeside!

Our family had a wonderful vacation at Virgil's Cottage at Indian Lake! This was our second time renting Virgil's Cottage! The location is perfect and the sunsets are amazing! The cottage is impeccably clean and well stocked with every kitchen item you could ever need. Unlike most cottages, Virgil's provides bed linens and towels. All you have to do is show up and start having fun! The cottage is very roomy and sleeps eight very comfortably. There is a large patio with table & chairs & umbrella, a grill, a fire pit ... we ended every night with smores by the fire!! Virgil's is the perfect place to create family memories ... we look forward to vacationing at Virgil's again!

Owner's Response: Sandi,

We were happy to have you and your family back this year, and glad you had such a great time! Creating memories is one of the most wonderful aspects that Indian Lake provides us, and we are so fortunate to have the opportunity to allow others to do the same while staying at Virgil's Cottage. We truly cherish the friendships we build with our guests week after week. Our late, dear neighbor Virgil (Norma) Wilson wouldn't have it any other way.

Until next time!

The Febus Family


From the Owner

Our family was blessed with having our dear, late neighbor Virgil Wilson next door to us over the years. He and his wife Norma were the perfect neighbors, and we formed a great relationship with them. After Norma passed away, we would invite Virgil over for family dinners, have conversations around the campfire, and keep him company. Before Virgil passed away in 2009, he sold us his cottage, and ever since we have been able to allow others to come to Indian Lake to make memories of their own to cherish. We look forward to having you at the cottage soon!
