Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cabin in Rome City - Mirror Lake Rustic Cabin

Mirror Lake B&B is not big, nor is it fancy. It has that make yourself at home, peaceful, private and relaxing feeling. Our 500 sq. ft. rustic cabin/lake cottage is located in northern 'northeast' Indiana. Just outside the small town of Rome City. Where you will find the Fought's 175 acre grain farm. And Mirror Lake's cabin/lake cottage we call the 'Bunkhouse'. We are not like most B&B's. You are in your own private one bedroom, one bath and living room. With a warm and cozy atmosphere, it can easily sleep 4 comfortably. The bedroom has an Amish made Hickory queen size bed and an antique youth bed (longer and thinner). The bunkhouse has a vaulted ceiling and 8ft interior walls.The living room has 2 sofas that convert to queen size sleepers. With air conditioning, small flat screen TV, DVD, VCR, gas fireplace, stereo, no statelite, no phone. The bathroom has a NEWLY added step in shower. With a pedestal sink and toilet. The kitchenette is minimal NO ONE WANTS TO GO ON VACATION AND COOK ALL THE TIME. So there is a table and 4 chairs, with mini refrigerate, toaster oven, microwave, coffee pot, dishes, cups and silverware.( No oven, pots or pans.) And you are invited into our 180 yr. old farm home for breakfast. Because your the only breakfast guests here. Feel free to come for breakfast in your pajama pants or dressed for the day. For an OVER THE TOP full farm breakfast each morning. Or a breakfast can be delivered to the 'Bunkhouse door.' Because this is a FARM stay and not a restaurant there is only one type breakfast served daily. Your outside living space includes a patio table, 6 chairs, a table umbrella and gas grill. Sit on your wood glider and watch the sun go down over the water. Relax by or in the 4ft above ground pool, fish from the pier or drive the John Deere Gator to either of the 2- 10 acre woods. Walk or bike on the safe, mowed paths. Visit the 2 primitive cabins as well ( if there are no campers). Look for the deer, wild turkeys, Sand Hill Cranes, Osprey's, Owls and more. Pet the horses and check out the feeder cattle. This is all included in your stay. You can bring your own tackle & poles or use ours ( no bait provided). And please return them the way you found them (all working). You are welcomed to rent the paddle/ battery mini pontoon, fishing boat, canoe or Kayak for fishing inside the private lake. Life jackets and floatations cushions provided and MUST be one per person in each boat. Fishing is caught and release or you are welcome to keep and cleaning. We do not supply any cleaning supplies. So you need to bring your own. Non swimmers MUST wear life jackets and everyone MUST sign liability forms. We are NOT responsible for accidents. In the right season, or time of the year you can even rent a canoe or Kayak. To adventure up or down the Little Elkhart river. That is located right on site. The river may have areas that you have to port or maneuver around fallen trees. It is always an adventure on the Little Elkhart. Mirror Lake is ALL about getting away from it ALL. But still have all the amenities. There many mom and pop eateries all within driving distance. Mirror Lake takes you away from all the pressures of life, stress of the traffic, noise and congestion. Here you are surrounded by no people or crowds. Mirror Lake B&B is a place to sit back relax, take it easy, take in nature and reconnect with each other and nature as well. Or bring some friends and just have gun!!!!

About Kathy Fought

We have lived on the farm for over 24 years. We have 3 grown children & 3 grand daughters. That all still live near the area. I come from a large family of 10 siblings and over 40 nieces and nephews. And now over 30 great nieces & nephews (and that is just my side). I host most of the family gatherings. When my kids left the house I missed people coming and going. This has been a dream and a thought of mine for over 15 years. So with the help of my husband in 2006 we remodeled a 2 car garage. And converted it into our Bed and Breakfast we call the 'Bunkhouse'. Giving you all the amenities but keeping it rustic, cabin-like & simple. When we are not working around the property. We enjoy riding our horses, our pool, golfing, fishing, our cabins for campfires and camping. We also enjoy using the river on our property for canoeing and Kayaking. I used to think no would ever come all the way out here to stay. Then I would ride my horse in the trails in the woods and come back to the house. Looking over all the property then I would think. It's to pretty not to share. A life style almost forgotten. Time for us all to sit back & relax & enjoy life for awhile.

Why Kathy Fought chose Rome City

When life hands you lemons you make Lemon-aid. My first husband died when we were 28. We were living outside Kendallville. In a new home in the woods. Jed & his wife had bought 6 acres, the home and portion of the lake in 1988. Just a few months later, she too passed away too at the age of 28. 6 years later in 1994 we married and I & my 7 year old son moved to Mirror Lake. Where we joined Jed (my husband) and his daughter of 10 and son of 7. We fell in love with the property. I too grow up on a family farm in the country and loved it. My husband was a dairy farmer. He milked cows on the home place just a few miles from this home. We have now purchased the entire farm of 175 acres, the family cemetery, the south half of the private lake and the 15 acre woods across the lake. For 17 years of our marriage he milked cows and was gone alot and worked very long hours. 4 years ago he sold the cows and now is only a grain farmer. And we have a lot more time to enjoy our property. What isn't there to LOVE?? Fresh air, green grass, green growing crops, blue sky, beautiful water,the Little Elkhart River, horse trails to ride or walk on. Peace, privacy, nature in all directions and FISH too. WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE??

What makes this cabin unique

The main house dates to the early 1830's. There is a family cemetery with 49 graves on the farm, just south of the horse barn. We have an Osprey (bird) nest in our power line tower. There are only 5 nests in Noble Co. and 3 in LaGrange Co. AND WE HAVE ONE. This is their 5th year returning. It is peaceful and private. You are the only guests on the main property (there maybe campers in the woods at the 2 campsites.) A place to reconnect to each other or be on a vacation with another couple and NOT be surrounded by other people. Again did I say PRIVATE AND PEACEFUL!!
