Great hiding place from your daily hustle and bustle!

Lakefront cottage with kitchen and patio
It is peaceful, cozy, comfortable, has lots of amenities and is capable of hosting a large group. There was no WiFi, on purpose! But now we have WiFi as it is a popular amenity and a flat screen TV with ROKU. Bring your books, magazines, needlework, games or favorite pillow to allow for full decompression! It is very quiet at night.
> This well-kept cottage is a 2 BR, 1 BA single unit, which has a spacious layout and was just remodeled in the MBR. It is situated 25 feet from the lake, with a fantastic sunrise and shaded afternoon orientation due to huge sycamore and maple trees.
> The MBR opens onto the deck and has a beautiful view of the lake, especially at sunrise! There is a ceiling fan above the queen bed on a carpeted floor. Fish can be heard breaking the surface at night when the sliding door is open to the screen door!
> The second bedroom has a twin trundle bed, washer and dryer and board games!
> The bathroom has a tub surround on a porcelain metal tub, vanity and sink/faucet and water-resistant flooring.
> The kitchen has a refrigerator that serves RO ice and water and smooth-top electric range/oven. Water is heated by a demand gas water heater and treated by a water softener.
> There is a Ring security system available for use while away or at night.
> The great room has a large dining table, kitchen chairs, stools, two-recliner couch, ceiling fan, two air conditioners and water-resistant flooring.
> There is a carpeted sitting area, adjacent to the great room, with direct views of the water. It has a comfy chair and a sofa with a queen size bed for additional sleepers.
> The wood windows have storm windows for screened air circulation and secure closure when away or at night.
> The screened-in porch with a table and chairs is adjacent to the sitting area and even closer to the water.
> The concrete pad next to the screened-in porch is the location for the gas grill.
> There is 55 feet of lake frontage, with a new 40 foot aluminum pier and a pebbled-bottom swim area.
> A picnic table and fire pit are located close to the deck and the waterfront.
> A side yard is next to the deck and close to the waterfront.
> Friendly families own the neighborhood cottages, which is one of the more popular destinations for boaters or friends on the lake.
> Fishermen are frequently fishing in their boats just beyond the pier, as the lake bottom has a steep drop off!
> Columbia City is 15 minutes away for the basics and Fort Wayne is 35 minutes away for everything else!
> The cottage is available during the off-season of late Fall through early Spring.
> With the appropriate conditions, ice fishing is a popular pastime on Loon Lake.

4/5 Good

everything as it should be, only had one complaint, not much parking if you have a boat though, no place to turn around.. otherwise its a really nice lake house..

5/5 Excellent

Great time
Very clean and nice the only problem was parking no room for more than 1 car

5/5 Excellent

Very Relaxing
We rented this cabin over labor day weekend. It was just what we needed--very relaxing and a change from our every day life. The cabin was very clean and well stocked with whatever you needed. The neighbors were very nice and friendly. I gave check in a 4 star because we had to wait over an hour before we got the code to get in the cabin. Luckily the neighbor had a phone number for the owners wife and we obtained the code from her. Dean was at work and he had no cell service until he left the building at the end of his work day. He was very apologetic and contacted me by phone and text to say how sorry he was. The only complaint we had is that we did not have a boat to go out on the water. There was no place to rent one on the lake. I would absolutely rent this cabin again.

5/5 Excellent

3/5 Okay

Wonderful Getaway
Lovely little cottage for a family weekend away. Cottage is well stocked with supplies. The lot is perfect with a grill, fire pit, outside table, and a hammock.
