About Dan & Liz Auger

We moved to Indiana from England in 2001. We enjoy taking family vacations especially by a lake or the beach.

Dan & Liz Auger purchased this house in 2013

Why Dan & Liz Auger chose Angola

We picked this property because of the history in the area, the beautiful setting and the great location on the lake. This is the original home built on the property and has been lovingly maintained and updated throughout the years, so you get the sense of time standing still with the convenience of modern utilities.

What makes this house unique

The big trees and beautiful lake views make it a very peaceful spot. The awesome sunsets can be enjoyed both outdoors on the patio and indoors from the picture windows.

Although secluded and peaceful, there are also many amenities available for those days when you want to venture out to civilization...Angola and Pokagon State Park are 15 minutes away, downtown Fort Wayne is 45 minutes, and downtown Chicago is 2.5 hrs drive.

Cleanest rental home we've ever stayed in! Dan and Liz are so accommodating. If you have any questions or problems they are immediately available to assist you. This is the third year we've stayed here and we can't recommend it enough. The new dock is a wonderful upgrade! My only complaint is I never met my Fitbit goal!😉�😝�

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your holiday and like our home. Hope to see you again next year. Our cleaning staff are brilliant and so very helpful too. Perhaps if we had made the dock longer, we could have helped with your Fitbit goal!

Overall we had a wonderful memorable enjoyable vacation at the lake house and having fun in the lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week of vacation which the location provided. The House can conveniently accommodate 9 guests and have good space for sleeping eating and leisure inside activities. The game table was perfect for our group since everyone enjoy playing cards and board games. The owners were generous in providing basic necessities needed in the kitchen bathroom and laundry. The kitchen is equipped with appliances and dishes needed for dining and outdoor grilling. The bedrooms are comfortable. The room with a double and 2 twins is perfect for the kids. The loft with a a twin bed and computer desk and shelf is a good feature. Our 12 year old boy slept in that room and the rest of the kids used the desk for their computer games. The room with the full bed where I slept was great because of the en suite bathroom. I would appreciate having a towel rack behind the door. Also it would be nice to have another table like a console under the mirror and a little table on the side of the sink in front of the toilet for toiletries. The en suite bathroom is a good size one actually bigger than what I expected. The toilet paper holder would be better on the side wall in front of the toilet rather than the back wall behind the toilet. This is just my personal preference. The masters bedroom is large and well equipped. The view of the lake in the masters bedroom was an ideal setting. The downstairs bathroom is really a nice large one which is just what a family would need. The back area where the washer/ dryer and counter/ cupboard is located is very useful and practical. It was a good place for the supplies we brought and the floor is where we laid all kinds of footwear. Then we didn’t have to drag them inside the house. We very much enjoyed outside dining using the picnic table and patio table both with umbrellas to keep the sun out. Actually having trees around the property was perfect in keeping the backyard shaded and cool. We appreciate the owners of the house for their thoughtfulness in providing us a house which can be a home away from home where we had a truly memorable and enjoyable experience. Thank you so much!
