About the property

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

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect for our visit. We are 7 seniors and enjoyed the beauty of the home, the well equipped kitchen, the cleanliness of the whole house, the comfort of the beds, the tables that served us well. This is a place of abundance. Thank you O'Connors from the Jacksons.

Fantastic, well-kept home! Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5

Zettler Cottage was perfect for what we were looking for. There 6-7 adults each night that fit comfortably. We spent most our time fishing off the dock, or lounging on the covered porch. Kitchen had everything needed, and more. Definitely can't wait to go back! Thank you!

Really does have the best view of the sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

The only negative is the cleanup requirements and early checkout. If you are booking know the washer takes an hour so be finished with your shower by 8:30 for a 10 am checkout. The house is gorgeous and spacious!

We love staying at the Zettler's Cottage. You really can't beat the beautiful view.

  • 4 of 5

We always enjoy sitting outside and this place has a great wrap around porch with plenty of seating options. The inside of the house is showing wear as any rental property over time but certainly meets our needs. The O'Connors are nice to work with and try to be as accommodating as possible. If any negative, I would say the cleaning of the place is not always consistent, meaning the last couple of times we have stayed, there was noticeable dirt on the floors, almost as if the folks that clean had to leave, meant to come back and then never did. We always bring extra toilet paper with us as there have been times where not that much toilet paper has been left for our use.

Annual Girl's Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have had our annual "Get Along Gang" Retreat at the beautiful Zettler Cottage. This year was the 25th year for our retreat and there is no better place to have it. Always immaculate, well stocked, beautiful view and feels like home. It's easy to get to but it really feels like a get away. We highly recommend the Zettler Cottage.

Unbeatable view and location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Zettler cottage from February 3rd through 10th. We had a wonderful time. The cottage is beautiful and the view and lake access is unbeatable. There is plenty of room for guests with 4 bedrooms and a game room with an additional daybed plus 3 1/2 bathrooms.

We would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay close to the lake.
