About the property

Adorable Cottage Sleeps 6

This is a very comfortable cottage, perfect for your family or a couples get-a-way.

While this cottage is not lake front it is just feet away from the waters edge. One of my best times of the day is to get a cup of coffee walk outside the cottage while the dew is still on the ground. The sun is warming as I walk to the lake. It is so quiet, you can sneak up on the bass that are swimming by the seawall. Walk out on the pier and watch as the swans and other birds fly by, and watch as the lake starts to wake up as the fish jump hungrily for their morning meal.

Water fun abounds from your pier. Sunbathing swimming and fishing. At the end of the pier you can swim out to a floating raft perfect for the swimmers and sun bathing! The pier has space for your boat. If you are not bringing a boat we can help you with a pontoon rental. We also have a fishing boat that you can use on request by reservation.

Beach area is shared by others but plenty of sand for everyone. Sand toys are located at the beach area. We also have a wagon so you don't have to carry anything to the beach or pier.

This cottage has a bedroom with a queen size bed cable TV, and all bed linens. The second bedroom has a full size bed, cable tv, dresser and all bed linens. The living room has a sofa bed that pulls out to a queen size bed and all bed linens.

The kitchen is stocked with everything you need for making a fresh summer meal or just heating up a pizza! Check out all the amenities we offer for the kitchen. We don't want you to have to pack like you are camping. Just bring your food and enjoy your time.

The bathroom is small but has everything you need. Thirty bath towels, wash clothes, hand soap, and toilet tissue. Shower only sorry no tub. We do not have laundry area at this time but we do have a clothes line for wet towels and bathing suits.

This is a comfortable cottage for four people but you can have up to six people if you like each other😀 this place gives you options to go to other areas to be alone or just have some down time.

The outside area has a great shaded area with rocking chairs to sit and read. The deck area has the picnic table, gas grill with gas, and chaise lounge chairs.

For the enjoyment for little ones a swing set and play area is on site. This is a shared area with other renters of our cottages. Along with a fire pit, and fire wood. We encourage everyone to use this area and get to know others at the lake. Roast a marshmallow and make a friend.

About Kathy Selby

I grew up at Big Barbee lake. I was very blessed my Grandparents had cottages that they rented out weekly. This has been something that has turned into a very enjoyable vacation spot for many family's that rented here for years. Paul and I enjoy the lake and the area very much. We stay as often as we can. So you will see us often.

I live in Fort Wayne with my Husband Paul but we plan on living at the lake one day.

Kathy Selby purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Kathy Selby chose Indiana

This was the first cottage that my grandparents opened. They bought it in 1958. It was a one bedroom.

Charming, homey, just what I needed!

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the Ramona cottage at Big Barbee Lake was fantastic. I only wish I had a few more days there. Kathy, the owner was over the top helpful and guided us to the most terrific sights, restaurants and activities. She respected our privacy, and at the same time made us feel very welcome. The food was spectacular at the Barbee Hotel, and I am NOT a foodie! The lake was not congested with tons of watercraft vehicles and the water was warm for swimming and relaxing. I will definitely be returning. If you are looking for a quiet get away from the hectic busy life, I sincerely recommend this location!

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Cozy, clean, had everything one would need for comfortable vacation. Included was a nice deck (seperate from the house) that included a large grill and covered table/chairs. Parking was great. Owner was most accommodating & helpful. We had a fun weekend. We recommend this lake cottage.

Great time, good fishing very, clean cottage

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the week very much. Kathy was awesome. Very personable and accommodating. The cottage was very clean and modern. She provides the little extras so you don't have to bring everything from home. Just booked for 2016! Caught some nice fish, very relaxing and great food and fun at Barbee Hotel and Danny's sports bar. Half price pizza on Tuesdays.

Adorable little cottage, comfy & romantic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was very comfy with soft large bed in master & firmer bed in other. Relaxing chair & sofa with big TVs in 3 rooms. The kitchen is very well equipped - not sparse like most places. A short walk to the water to put our kayaks right in the lake! The owner goes out of her way to make you comfortable. She gave us a good tour of the lake on her own boat so we would know where to go on ours kayaks. Thank you Kathy!!

Weekend Getaway- CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN Lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

Kathy is awesome and we have stayed here a few times. We always get worried about a vacation rental and the cleanliness of them, this one is top notch and spotless. Always clean and always decorated amazing at this lakehouse. Its what a lakehouse should feel like- dont forget your flip-flops

this area is a great getaway for a small family or even 2 couples as the bedrooms are far apart from each other- the value is great for the location and all the amenities. Great little beach, food and a bar or 2 within walking distance- We always have an awesome time- thanks Kathy
