Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + , 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-11). Large yard, deck, dock, beach

Spring is here and Summer is just around the corner at the lake! The Guise Guest Cottage is a perfect place for you to get all the family together for your summer vacation! Our cottage is smoke-free (we do not rent to smokers) and you will not find a cleaner, more welcoming cottage in the area. The Guise Guest Cottage is located less than 500 ft. from Big Turkey Lake, just down the sandy lane. At the end of the lane on the left is the beach and on the right is the boat dock. A paddle boat and a row boat with oars are included (May-Oct) and there are two adult-sized life jackets provided. There is dock space available to dock one boat at no additional cost. The private boat launch ramp is near the beach. The dock is put in the water in May and is taken out the last of October. Fishing from the dock is usually very good and bait can be purchased across the lake at the Sandwich Shop. The kids will have a great time digging in the sand, making sand castles and swimming at the beach. Adults are responsible for their children - there is no lifeguard. The cottage property backs up against a wooded area. In the back yard there is a great hill for the kids to run up and down and a 2 person swing at the top of the hill for Mom and Dad. Enjoy the evenings with a campfire - the wood is provided. There is a deck with a table/umbrella/chairs for the warmer weather. A charcoal grill is available year round (please bring your own charcoal). In the backyard there is an additional hangout area - a covered deck with a table/chairs and swing! Inside the cottage is a spacious kitchen which has a large eating area with 2 tables and a rolling island that can be moved to accommodate large gatherings. There is a single serve Keurig coffeemaker (upon request) in addition to the Mr. Coffee coffeemaker. There are 3 couches (can be used for sleeping) and a chair in the living area. The "Aloha" bedroom has a queen bed, a set of bunkbeds and a bathroom with a shower. The "Bear 2" bedroom has a queen bed and the "Blessing"' bedroom has 2 twin beds which can be converted into a king-size bed. Please let us know in advance if you would like the king-size bed configuration. The main bathroom has a tub/shower. You provide your own bath towels and beach towels. Dish towels and dishclothes are provided. "Starter" paper towels, napkins, tissue, toilet paper and trash bags are provided but you will need to bring more for the rest of your stay. Bed linens are provided. There is a washer/dryer available for your use. Bring your own detergent. Additionally, there are some books, movies and games for all ages, wireless broadband internet, and satellite TV/DVD/VCR player in the living room.

Oh, and don't forget to sign the boat paddle before you leave!

Some fun places to go:

Shipshewanna, about 23 minutes away, the heart of the Amish community. Shipshewana features lots of great shops, great homemade food, indoor waterpark, and an auction/flea market every Tues/Wed.(April-Oct). Kukui Shave Ice is great refreshment on a warm day and it even has a gum ball at the bottom of each dish! The Eash Bulk Grocery store has some great bargains and the deli is really good and priced reasonably. They only take cash or check at the grocery, no debit or credit cards. And if you want to hold and love on some puppies, go next door to E&S Sales. We got our sweet Maltipoo puppy there.

Angola, about 25 minutes away, has an outlet mall, restaurants, movie theater and Pokagon State Park with hiking, toboggan run and cross country snow skiing.There is a Walmart, Menards, Kohls, Meijer and CVS in Angola, along with most of the popular fast-food establishments (McDonald's, Wendy's, Taco Bell, Burger King, Subway, Arby's).

Auburn, about 25 minutes away also, has a great movie theater, Cracker Barrell, fast food places, Home Depot and a Walmart just off of I-69.

Stroh, just across the lake, has a great pizza place called Stroh Pizza and More. Their ice cream is amazing! They take cash or checks but no credit cards. The gas station in Stroh has some groceries and will take a credit card if your purchase is over $10. There are 2 other family/pub restaurants in Stroh. Stroh also has several places to worship on Sunday.

No pets are allowed at any time.

*** This cottage is a Non-smoking environment. We do not rent to tenants who smoke at any time, and smoking is not allowed at any time in the cottage or on the property.

Keywords: The lake view and sandy beach is just a few steps away down the lane. This 1360 sq ft cottage renovated 2010 has everything you need to feel comfortable and relaxed after a day of fishing, swimming, sightseeing or snowman building - perfect for all seasons of the year. Relax on the deck, sit by the bonfire, sit in the 2 person swing on the hill, play games, watch TV or watch the snow fall. Wireless internet is available. This cottage is open all year round with central heat and air conditioning and is a great place for a quiet getaway or a family Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years gathering.
