About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Breathtaking Waterfront View

Located on one the most beautiful islands of Indian Lake, this property is a perfect vacation spot for those wanting to relax and enjoy a week or two away from the everyday. This lakefront home is perfectly situated on the northwest corner of Seminole Island, providing an excellent open water view of the lake. During the day, guests will be able to enjoy a fun and relaxing swimming and fishing experience as the home is located away from heavy boat traffic. In the evenings, spectacular sunsets can be enjoyed from the property's shoreline. 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.

Indian Lake is located about 1 hour 30 minutes from Dayton, Ohio and 1 hour from Columbus, Ohio.

About Mark Febus

For over 20 years, our family has enjoyed Indian Lake and all that it has provided. Our cottage on Seminole Island has been the perfect place for both adventure and leisure. Many memories with family and friends have been made over the years, and we will cherish them always.

Mark Febus purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Mark Febus chose Ohio

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!

What makes this cottage unique

You will fall in love with the breathtaking sunset views in the evenings, whether it be from the property shoreline or our spacious lake room with floor-to-ceiling windows! The cottage is the perfect spot for many celebrations, including birthdays, anniversaries, and family reunions!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Even though it was a very rainy week, there was plenty to keep us busy. Boating, fishing, tubing, cards, Uno, puzzles, smores, running, biking, walking. The sunsets on Indian Lake are amazing. Thank you for providing a well-maintained, clean home which included everything we needed. This was a great place to spend time together, as a family, before dropping our son off at college. Thanks again! - The Ruggerio Family from CT

Virgil's Lakefront Cottage

  • 5 of 5

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!

Virgil's Cottage at Indian Lake

  • 5 of 5

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
