My husband & I are originally from Chicago. I spent my childhood coming to Laporte with my family and loving it. So when my hubby & I decided to buy a lake house I knew I wanted laporte. Then 5 years ago we had the opportunity to buy the cottage house next door and its been a labor of love rehabbing it. We now live in Laporte full time.
Jan purchased this cottage in 2012
My husband John & I were lucky enough to buy the cottage house next door 5 years ago. We gutted and remodeled it for family and friends to stay but we had so many people ask if they could rent it and I have now been an Innkeeper for 4 years and love it. I want our guests to arrive at the cottage and leave there everyday stresses. I tell them to make the cottage there own. I greet every guest and show them everything the house offers then we leave them alone. We are here if they need anything.
I always loved the cottage house it was built in 1915 and I knew when I remodeled it I would mix old with new. We found beautiful hardwood floors throughout a gorgeous fireplace. I put in hickory kitchen cabinets which look great with the pine floors in the kitchen. Then through in the sparkle of stainless steel appliances. So when I decorated I mixed my love of old with new. I am a treasure hunter so there are little touches all over the cottage that people see. I also have had repeat guests now and they noticed that I changed a few things since they were there last. When guests are fortunate to stay over the holidays they get to stay in a Christmas wonderland. I get the biggest kick out of guests when they want to buy something I have in the cottage it makes all my treasure hunting worthwhile.
Thank you so much ! Nice ,cute little place and perfect for us. The owners were awesome ! Clean and great view!
This cottage is wonderful! The location has a beautiful view of the lake and is a quick drive to town. Upon arrival we were very impressed, the cottage was meticulously cleaned, adorably decorated and very comfortable. This is SO much better than staying at a hotel. We can't wait to come back! Thanks for the hospitality Jan and John!
Jan turned up the heat for us before we even got there so it was warm and cozy when we arrived. It was the week before Thanksgiving and she even had Thanksgiving decorations up. Plenty of towels and blankets. The kitchen had everything we needed and there were three TVs so everyone could watch what they wanted. Beautiful view of the lake and we hope to come back to visit our son (in South Bend) in the summer so we can take advantage of that lake. Thanks, Jan!
We only were able to stay one night, but we immensely enjoyed ourselves! Jan is a gracious host, showing us around the home, and we had all the supplies needed to make our time there comfortable. Near shopping and entertainment (bowling) but nestled away from the hub-bub. With the lake right across the street, it made for lovely evening and morning strolls, and the view from the kitchen window is breathtaking. We definitely hope to come back. Thank you Jan for very nice place to stay!
While we ended up staying at a different cottage, Papa's Cottage (same owners), I can say we had a wonderful experience! The cottage was beautifully done, cozy, and the owner - Fabulous to work with! We were very comfortable in this home away from home. This was my first experience through the VRBO, but am looking forward to using this service again. I have also referred friends and family that will coming for Notre Dame game weekends to Jan, just because she was so great to work with. She has taken great care of her cottage and it shows!
This was our second trip and stay at the cottage. This time my husband and I took 7 children with us (yes, we are crazy). Despite our army, the trip was relaxing, rejuvenating and lovely. Jan and John go above and beyond to make sure you feel like family, not guests. Though it's only a short trip from our home near Chicago, it feels like you're in another world. One more tranquil and removed from the hustle of the every day. A must stay!

We like our guests to have a wonderful get away so if there is anything you would need before you check in never hesitate to ask. The cottage has a driveway that easily parks 3 cars.
