Serenity House on Techumseh Island

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -
(10 traveler reviews)

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Aug 1, 2016
House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Located on Techumseh Island, Indian Lake. This property is on

one of Ohio's largest lakes and is an outstanding vacation

and pleasure resort and a fisherman's paradise. With 5,800 acres of

water and an area of approximately 13,000 acres of land and water

with an irregular, rugged, wooded shoreline of more than 29 miles,

it is one of the largest, most beautiful and most popular vacation

playgrounds in the midwest.

My home was built in the 1940's and sits on the north-east corner

of the island accessible by car over 'Dream Bridge'. For the early risers you will experience a fantastic sun rise as the water lays ripple free. The morning sun will bring the lake to life.

On the inside, the first floor includes a queen master bed room,1

full bathroom, kitchen dinning area, TV area, and a sun room with

fire place. Large windows and glass sliding door to look at the lake.

Upstairs you'll find a finished attic/loft with 2 separate rooms

containing 3 queen and one full size beds and a 1/2 bath.

My home can comfortably sleep 6-8. (1 queen in the master Bedroom

and 3 queen size & 1 full size beds upstairs).

The kitchen is complete with all needed utensils and dishes. It also

includes a large refrigerator, stove, oven, micro wave, and

dishwasher. Full size washer and dryer. Central A/C and a water softener.

Firewood is supplied for the portable fire pit and a gas grill.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the use of your cottage. The girls enjoyed counting the light houses throughout the house. In case you were wondering there is 38 light houses in the bathroom alone. "Something for little girls to do on a rainy day".



Also, thanks for leaving the board games, cards, and puzzles. It created some quality family time.

Great Location and a Good Value

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation and GREAT weather. We rented a fishing boat for the week and enjoyed using the dock. We had a problem with the gas grill and the cottage's maintenance person arrived within an hour to access the problem. We had a new grill installed by 10 am the next morning in time for our planned lunch for 12 people. Great customer service! Two of our guests said they will rent this cottage next year because of this experience.

Owner's Response: Reviews like this one are the reason I continue to rent my lake home. The vast majority of my renters are gracious, courteous, respectful of my property. My property sells out in early spring of every year since 2005 when I started renting. I treat my guest as I would want to be treated and try and resolve all issues expeditiously.

Great property.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. We will return if our schedule allows. Nice pier for boats and great views of the lake. This property is perfect for being out of the wind and the waves are limited.

Nice House - Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is just as pictured and advertised. In addition to a dishwasher, there is a washer and dryer for your use (yeah!). We had a wonderful time...our dog didn't want to get into the car when it was time to leave. We will definately book again for next summer. Thanks for sharing your house with us and our dog.

Activity and Interests

You will find a 24 foot boat dock out the back door, bring your own boat/PWC or rent one. Fishing, Swimming, Boating, Water Skiing,

Knee boarding, Kayaking, and Bicycling are all great on the islands to enjoy. There have been several large fish caught right off our dock, but it is usually best in the spring or fall.

Local Summer activities include, Golfing/horse back riding, touring under ground caverns, ancient 'Piatt' castles, all within 30 minutes
