Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath Cottage With Private Beach, Pool, Lake Access, Boat Launch

You will absolutely love our recently renovated cottage in this private lake-side community. It has just about everything anyone would need for their special vacation get-away! The cottage has two bedrooms, each with a queen bed and the spacious living room has a full-size sofa sleeper for added sleeping accommodations, plus a club chair and ottoman for the best seating comfort, while you and your family or friends pass the hours in the evening watching TV or chatting about the great time you're having on vacation.

The cute kitchen has all the amenities, except a dishwasher. But don't forget about the added convenience of the washer/dryer unit off the living area. There is a television in each bedroom and one in the living room, all with basic cable. Wireless internet is also available free of charge. There is a gas fireplace for chilly winter evenings if some extra warmth and relaxing ambiance is what you seek.

Wake up in the morning to the sound of peace and quiet, have coffee on your own private deck overlooking the pond, take a walk down the private lake access road, or on the adjacent country lanes that connect to other nearby private lake communities, take a cool dip in the community pool, fish off the private pier, take a refreshing swim in the lake, lounge on the private beach, take your boat out for a morning run or ski...the possibilities to start your day are endless. The afternoons follow the same wide-open possibilities and the evenings can be used to explore nearby restaurants, bars, movie theaters, the drive-in theater, or the local winery.

NOTE: All guests MUST be 25 (twenty-five) years of age or older, with the exception of minors accompanied by guests 25 (twenty-five) years of age or older. The cottage is also PET FREE and strictly NO SMOKING. We must enforce this policy so that all our guests can enjoy a smoke-free stay and to avoid possible health issues regarding pet and/or smoke sensitivity, such as triggering an asthma attack or allergic reaction. Please respect and obey this policy. If you or someone in your party is a smoker, consider another rental nearby, or we request that you smoke outside on the back deck and discard used butts in a separate trash bag that will be kept outside at all times during your stay. Do not smoke outside within 20 feet of the cottage to avoid any smoke entering the house through open windows or doors. If any smoke damage or the presence of smoking materials or odor will result in the forfeiture of the entire Damage Deposit. NO EXCEPTIONS!

*CANCELLATION POLICY*: If Renter cancels reservation, payments will be refunded as follows:

a. Reservations canceled 30 days, or more, before the rental period begins (Check-In Date) will receive a 100% refund of all monies paid to Homeowner, plus the Service Fee paid to VRBO/HomeAway (to be issued from VRBO/HomeAway).

About Juliene & John

We grew up in Northern Indiana along southern tip of Lake Michigan and near Chicago. My husband attended Purdue University in West Lafayette, and I attended Purdue University Calumet. We have owned property in the Von Hollow community since 1985 and love the opportunity it affords us and our children to reconnect to nature and each other whenever we have the chance to 'get to the lake'.

Juliene & John purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Juliene & John chose Indiana

We liked the excitement of the big city, and the allure of the 'Big Lake', and we love boating, jet-skiing and all things water and wanted to find something smaller, more private, quiet and accessible to most boats and boating recreation. This cottage and the private community it is a part of is something rare and extraordinary that not many people get to experience. We wanted to share that experience with others. We also love that it is so close to Purdue, Indiana Beach, and many wonderful restaurants...see Top Notch in Brookston, IN (Not To Be Missed on the weekend for the filet mignon). There is also a connectedness with nature that can be had here whether enjoying the lake, sitting on the deck, taking a walk or bike ride, or reading on the beach. We know time is precious and fleeting and hope you can spend some of your time enjoying what we call our second home! Hope to see you soon at Von Hollow; you'll be glad you stayed with us :-)

What makes this cottage unique

Simply the location, private community, and hard-to-find private community beach and lake access to Lake Freeman made this property the best find. The fact that this cottage operates more like a home makes it a great year-round retreat for us and our friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for providing such a clean place for us to spend a few days with our daughter and her family. Our granddaughters especially loved the pool. Loved the comfort of the place. It had everything we could need!

Cozy & Cute

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our small family. The kitchen and grill were great for us because we were able to cook all our meals on vacation. The deck in the back overlooked a pond and was really beautiful and relaxing. The playground, pool, and beach were great for entertaining the kids for hours. The cottage was clean and the amenities perfect for restful and relaxing trip. The beds in the bedrooms were comfortable and the pullout bed in the family room was great for kids. The owners were always quick to respond to any questions we had. People at the resort were friendly and helpful as well.

Perfect for Our Family!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage is great for a small family who plans to do a lot of cooking, grilling, relaxing, swimming, playing at the park & beach (although we never got down there). The beds in the bedrooms comfortable, the sleeper isn't as comfy, but fine for kids. The cabin was clean and felt like home right away. Everyone in the community is friendly & helpful and the owners were always quick to respond to questions. We visited Indiana Beach daily and it was only 15 minutes away.

Very cute and fully equipped in a great resort!

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was very cute and clean! The back deck overlooking the pond appeared to be the best in the resort! We all loved how there was much to do within literally steps of the cottage! We went several places during our stay but really just loved the cottage and the resort! Grill was ready to go and the people at the resort were all friendly! Owners were great and quick to respond to anything and even helped to accommodate us an extra night with our drop of the dime notice! We would recommend this place and even come back ourselves!

The cottage is adorable and has a great set up. It's a perfect location on the lake, just a short walk down the hill to relax and soak in the sun!

Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This Cottage allows us to enjoy the comforts of home while visiting our son and his family. Having a separate space allows for quiet time on our own. The Cottage had more of the essentials than last time we visited. There was a plastic sandwich bag when I needed it. Also extra toilet paper was available, even though it wasn't needed. Basic spices helped meals. We appreciated the efforts of he owners to respond to our needs. The cottage is lovely and the village is quiet.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We booked this for some of our guys setting up an auction and they could not have been happier with the community feel of this area, the great communication from the owners and the awesome cottage. Thank you so much. They felt pampered to be able to come home every night and call this place their own for a month, instead of staying at the normal hotel. They say, "thank you" time and time again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the glowing review. We try our best to make our little cottage as welcoming and comfortable as possible. We're so glad they found it such a relaxing retreat to come back to every night; unlike a standard hotel room. You and/or your associates are welcome to come back anytime in the future.

We are located in a private community on beautiful Lake Freeman. Our location boasts its own exclusive boat ramp launching area, a private beach, private pool, playground for the little ones with a rock-climbing wall, and an outdoor volleyball court. Our little getaway also has a private deck overlooking the upper pond (there are two ponds on the property adjacent to the private lake access road, that ultimately feed into the lake below). We have a gas grill next to the cottage for enjoying a relaxing summertime meal. A fire pit is also provided for your enjoyment if you wish to cook s'mores outside or simply enjoy the ambiance of a nighttime fire.
