House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Surrounded by Indian Lake with beautiful views of water and wooded island. It is located in a beautiful wooded landscape that is a country setting. This is the perfect place to fish and boat with the fishing preserve just around the corner and the open water for boating only a few feet away. There is a covered area at dock and a long pier on the property for your convenience in docking your boat. The cottage has been remodeled and has all the newer amenities to make your stay comfortable and memorable. The yard is large with nice mature trees, an enclosed back porch, grill, picnic table, fire ring and of course the water's edge. There are water views both from the front and back since you are on an island with only 5 houses to the end.

waterfront Island Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Loved this cottage! Very relaxing and loved being in the lagoon close to the mouth of the big lake. The kids had so much fun fishing and playing in the backyard. Meet one of the neighbor's who took us on a boat ride twice. Couldn't have asked for nicer neighbor's. Hoping to make this a family tradition and would love to come back to this cottage.

Relaxing week at the Lake

  • 5 of 5
What a great little cottage! This place is so charming. We arrived to find a vintage cottage decorated in period accessories straight from our childhood. Three nicely furnished bedrooms (2 with queen size beds), a nice cozy living room with a view of the inlet, a spacious kitchen with a dishwasher and a charming little screened porch at the back complete with gas grill. The cottage is off the main lake down a short inlet and across from an uninhabited island full of birds. Large trees in the back yard with the water only a short walk from the back door. Nice little shelter at dockside lets you lean back and put up your feet in the shade. The dock is well cared for and there is even a fire pit near the water for those sunset campfires we love so much. Easy access to the main lake and a fabulous wildlife sanctuary just around the corner that we boated to several times during our stay. We heard rumors of eagles, but we didn't see any ourselves. We did see plenty of grey Herons, though.

The neighborhood is mostly permanent residents, and we were warmly greeted by several folks when we took our evening walks to a nearby bridge and boat launch. Plenty of attractions nearby by boat: Beaches, restaurants, a boat-up McDonalds in Russels Point, and a bizarre little restaurant called the Tiltin' Hilton you shouldn't miss. A grocery store is only about 10 minutes away. We had a wonderfully relaxing time and the rental rate was very reasonable. Highly recommended. A++

Activity and Interests

This is a very large lake that has regular fishing tournaments, many restaurants with pull up areas for boats, skiing areas along with many swimming and fishing spots. There is a very large preserve close to the cottage that is home to much wildlife, including eagles in the last 2 years. A great place to explore for turtles and birds. In the fall there are many duck hunting activities and with all the wooded area it is a beautiful place to enjoy the Ohio fall colors and stunning sunsets all year round.

Each holiday is celebrated with community actvities from spectacular fireworks on the 4th of July to the "Ring of Fire" over Labor Day weekend. Many more activities are throughout the year and even into the winter the ice skating and fishing are enjoyable. There are snowmobiles on the lake when the water freezes in addition to ice skating.

There are 2 towns close by and a new flea market to make shopping close and convenient and exploring the treasures of the lake. On the way around the lake stop at the go cart tracks for a spin and the arcade to play electronic games the whole family can enjoy.

A short distance drive to these additional activities: Ohio Caverns, Marmon Valley Farms with several activities(including horseback riding) and Mad River Moutain Skiing.
