The Glass Cottage - Pet-Friendly Lakeside Property With Dock


Property Details

Updated: Oct 1, 2016
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Treat your family to the most memorable summer vacation of their lives with a stay at the Glass Cottage on Indian Lake in Lakeview, Ohio.

This four-bedroom home accommodates up to 10 guests with linens, towels and a fully equipped kitchen. The spacious loft with its four twin beds is a favorite with kids. The Glass Cottage also has cable, air conditioning and high-speed wireless Internet.

Watch the sun rise as you sip your coffee to the sound of birds singing and water gently lapping on the bank. Swim, fish and relax in the quiet channel; tie up your boat just steps from the front door.

Resting on the site of the original Glass Cottage, the home was rebuilt in 2001 with hardwood floors and modern amenities. Nearby attractions include the Tilton Hilton, Froggy's and Old Field Beach.

This is such a great place to stay! The Glass Cottage has everything you need. It's the perfect size. We never felt like we were on top of each other. The Glass Cottage is easy to get to and it's within walking distance to popular restaurants. All you need to do is kick back and make memories! We hope to return someday (soon)!

Great Family Memories

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough wonderful things about this perfect cottage. The owners are very attentive and ensure that you have everything you need during your stay. Securing the reservation, check in, and check out were all a breeze. We have stayed here more than once and I don't think we will ever stay any place else on the lake. It is always in pristine condition. The location is absolutely the best. We have a long family history of coming to Indian Lake and in the last few years we moved to Wisconsin. This cottage has allowed our family to continue the tradition of boating and staying on Indian Lake while reuniting with our family who is still in Ohio. It is such a comfortable, warm, home-like cottage with a fabulous location and everything you could possibly want during your stay. There is always fresh clean linens on the beds and in the bathrooms. The cottage is always extremely clean and comfortable. The view and boat access is perfect. We really love all of the windows that allow for a great view and a lot of natural light. There are 3 bedrooms on the main floor and 4 single beds with a full bath upstairs that makes it perfect for any family. The kids can "camp out" upstairs after a cook out on the grill that is provided. We all hung out on the large deck and our entire family sat around the fire, right on the water, while roasting marshmallows. This cottage is fully stocked with everything you need to enjoy some quality family time. It is within walking distance to some of Indian Lake's "hot spots"...The Tilton Hilton, Froggy's, Acheson's, and a short boat ride to Cranberry Resort as well as the local Donut Shop just across the newly renovated historical foot bridge, just to name a few. We couldn't ask for a more perfect place to make our family memories on Indian Lake. We will definitely return.

Family reunion getaway

  • 5 of 5

WOW! Those were our first words as we walked in. It is just beautiful. It was very clean and very well maintained. It fits 10 people perfectly. It is in a quiet location as well as a beautiful location. The deck was perfect for enjoying the outdoors and having a place to dock our boat was ideal. We could just hop on the boat at a moments notice to enjoy the lake or head out to go fishing. We enjoyed watching the moon rise through the many windows facing the lake. The owners were so gracious and provided us with answers to our many questions and information on just about anything we could think of. We would highly recommend planning your next vacation here. I know we are.

Cottage charmer

  • 5 of 5

The excitement builds the moment you step out of your car and see this charming cottage with front row seats to the lake and channel. Its tucked on a channel so its quit and tranquil yet the full few of the lake is within range. The morning was a bustle with birds, rabbits and catfish a jumping as the sun rose over the trees towards tgis east facing cottage.

The fully stocked kitchen lead a renter to plan a full meal or a simple breakfast with fresh berries from the roadsise market. Two coffee pots was a plus for our clan. Three bedrooms down and a magnificant loft with its bath made getting ready each day a breeze. All guests marveled at the sound night's sleep not only because of a day in the sun but from the comfy beds and quiet surroundings.

This will be an annual for our two families!

Owner's Response: Thank you Cottage Charmer. We put a lot of care and thought into including items our guests want in a vacation property. As I've told several past and future guests, the cottage was a great memory for us growing up. We are excited to share that with other families for summers to come.

The Glass cottage was a convenient location to house extra wedding guests for the weekend. Being able to sleep 10 in the lovely newly decorated bedrooms and 3 more in the living room was a big bonus for our out of town family members. The early morning sun welcomed guests to the deck for coffee, and three restaurants/bars within walking distance was a big plus. We will use this rental again for housing of out of town family guests.

Great stay at The Glass Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at The Glass Cottage was a pleasurable experience. The accommodations were wonderful and plentiful. Our daughters loved their loft bedroom with very own bathroom. The other bedrooms and bathroom were very neat and tidy. The kitchen was equipped with all needed supplies. The deck was an inviting spot to enjoy the soothing sounds of the lake and summer sun. The Glass Cottage was a very family friendly place to stay and we hope to visit again soon!
