Why Owner chose Coldwater
We purchased this property because of the number of bedrooms. We love the idea of extended families vacationing together and thought that a 6 bedroom home with access to our beloved Lake Bartholomew would be the perfect addition to our rental cottages. With the large back yard families with children have plenty of space to play and relax together. The quiet private drive means little traffic and peaceful nights. Lake Bartholomew is connected to 6 other lakes on the chain that offer different types of boating experiences from great fishing to ski and tubing fun.
What makes this Cottage unique
Six bedrooms allows for large family gatherings. Two bedrooms feature queen size beds. The loft area is great for hanging out or use as another sleeping area. Open floor plan allows for the whole family to be together. Two decks for relaxing and outdoor dining. There is a large backyard with fire pit for s'more fun and games.

House was nice, enjoyed close activities nearby
Our family of 16 had reservations in another home when, a week before our stay, the home was damaged in a storm. This home was not listed at the time of our original reservation, but was a god-send when I found it.
The home had ample sleeping. We had very young grandkids who loved being big kids in a top bunk. Our teen/twenty-something children were anywhere they wanted to be: some on the bunks, some on the couches, and yet others in the upstairs room and on the futon in the loft. We grandparents took the master bedroom, and great-grandma was in the twin-only room on the first floor.
During our stay, we have a taco bar for one dinner, and a chicken wing buffet for another. Breakfasts were eggs and bacon, hashbrown casseroles, or homemade yogurt (made here!) and granola. The kitchen was easy to maneuver through, and by feeding the grandchildren just a wee bit earlier than the rest of us, we were all able to sit down at meals (using the dining table and the kitchen bar).
We had game time at night in the living room, having the more senior adults on the couches and kitchen chairs, and allowing the teens/twenty-somethings to flop on the floor. The little ones made block towers and floor puzzles, with plenty of room to spare.
The homeowners were available to answer questions, and even stopped by to make sure we had everything we needed.
Thank you for giving us a home when we were desperately in need. This was a winning situation!
