Iyopawa Island Golf Course

The surrounding area is quite unique. In the front yard of this cottage, originally built in 1941 and freshly remodeled in 2015, you will find a 1600 acre all sports lake. This lake connects to 5 other lakes via a channel system. You can boat 17 miles through the incredibly beautiful channels and connecting lakes. Pack a lunch and be our families guest at our private boat slip on Corn Island (available weekdays only for certain). Here I have a large deck with table and grill. There are two restaurants on the chain of lakes. You can reserve a pontoon from the marinas on the lake for a daily or weekly charge. They are very nice boats. There are many sand bars to get off the boat and swim.

Out your back door you will see the private tennis court. So if you play, don't forget you racquets. Just a few more steps you will be on the #1 green of Iyopawa Island Golf Course. A very nicely kept 9 hole course. It looks easier then it plays. The island itself is a great place to walk, jog, Rollerblade etc.... it's apprx 1 1/2 mile around the island, on the asphalt.

This cottage sits on a private drive. This leads to more privacy and a more quiet surrounding. The cottage faces west for the most breath taking sun sets you can imagine. You won't want to miss a single one of them.

There is, what we call, a party store just a short distance from the peninsula. There you can pick up your necessities and favorite cold drinks. About 15 minute drive to either town of Angola IN or Coldwater MI. If your a theater buff, Coldwater has the most beautiful old historic theater that you'll ever find. Their summer theater program is quite wonderful.

You will have many questions upon arriving. We should have the answers. Our grand kids are the fifth generation to grow up on the island. My great grandfather built the 2nd cottage on the island in 1921. At this time it still stands but is slated for demolition soon.

Most people that visit, return year after year. Many buy a place and never leave.
