About Mike

My wife and I currently live in Monticello, IN, on Lake Freeman, just north of our rental home. We both love to entertain and meet new people. We also love to vacation and enjoy meeting others who love to vacation as well.

Mike purchased this house in 2000

Why Mike chose Monticello

Our property was custom built by me in 2010. So it was built with pride. I built it with a vision of Aspen log living. It is warm and inviting. Our home provides amenities not normally included in most rental homes. We find it very accommodating. You and your family will enjoy your stay and have a positive experience!

What makes this house unique

The home sits on a quiet cove that allows easy access of docking your boat, calm water cove which is great for swimming, rafting, paddle boating, or just floating in tubes.

Enjoyed this place so much, we returned a second year for family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

I have rented in several states through VRBO since 2009. We have rented three other properties in the Monticello area, and Mike is, without a doubt, the most gracious host we have ever had. When the coffee pot failed on our first morning, Mike had a new one at the house that afternoon, even though there was a Keurig (with pods!) there as well. His lake home is spacious, tasteful, well maintained, and appointed with items of necessity and a lot of extras. The beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms much nicer than typically found in a resort rental. The kitchen contains everything needed to prepare meals for a large group, with a roomy adjacent pantry closet for grocery storage, and an extra refrigerator and freezer in the garage.

We are a large family with folks from infant to 85, and everyone enjoyed the indoor and outdoor spaces. The upstairs deck, and downstairs porch assure that even rainy days won't ruin the fun. There are plenty of spaces to be together, or to get away for a bit of tranquility, if desired. The play set on property was a hit with the 5-8 year olds, and the kayaks and dock area were popular with the college aged kids. The firepit was used every night by the whole crowd, with music and singing (which the neighbors were gracious about.)

We plan to return again next year, as the vote was hearty and unanimous, that Mike's home is superior in every way!

Third Memorial weekend at Lake Freeman was fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We love Mike’s place so much we returned for a third year. The house, deck, lawn, and lake were a prefect gathering spot. The amenities are outstanding, and the property is extremely well maintained. The weather was unusually hot, and the lily pad float and kayaks were a hit with the big and little kids. This place is perfect for our annual family reunion, and we’ve already reserved for next year.

This house and grounds were amazing. You always wonder if the pictures are nicer than the rental unit... here the unit is nicer than the photos. The appliances are nice.. the decorations are great.. and all of the amenities are nicer than described. What a great vacation for our family of all ages. Mike was there to greet us and was there to tell us good-bye and promptly refund our deposit. You will not be disappointed if you rent from him.
