Our unique home at Coldwater Lake is a 4 bedroom, 2 bath with lake access. It is on a channel that connects to a chain of 7 lakes which is more than 15 miles end to end. It is great for boating, fishing, skiing, swimming, and other water sports. There are sand bars in the lake system that are perfect for anchoring your watercraft and relaxing in the sun, sand and water. There is no swimming in the channel out front but a major sandbar is a short distance by watercraft out into the lake.

About Don or Laura Shemel
We live and work in Coldwater, Michigan and our lake home is a fun place to get away and relax. Our daughter and son-in-law purchased the home in 2017. We love to grill out, and play games with our family and friends. We enjoy music, singing in the choir, Wallyball, bag toss, golf, swimming, and dining out at our favorite places.
Why Don or Laura Shemel chose Coldwater
This property was our Mom's place, where she lived and played for 25 years. We enjoy preserving, improving, and updating the home she loved. We are pleased to be able to enjoy the home, the water, and the fun that comes with it.
What makes this House unique
This home has a bit of everything. Retro to 1972, a classic A frame home with two bedrooms upstairs accessed by a circle iron staircase. A covered, screened and glassed in front porch. A north wing was added with plenty of room to dine, watch dvd movies, play board games, hang out and relax. An upstairs bedroom has two full beds, and a futon. The South wing was added on creating a master suite with a bath. Also added was the deck, along with a screened in gazebo for playing cards or just relaxing. A gas grill, and a weber charcoal grill are always at the ready. Some fun can be found fishing from the dock, watching the turtles, geese, deer and birds. It is a fun place to live and enjoy.

Had a great time. Plenty of room for the whole family.
The house was well stocked with everything we needed. There were some issues with the water pump. Still enjoyed our stay.
This Place is Special
My brother and I get our families together twice a year and usually stay at HomeAway properties. This lovely house provided a great base for our group which got as large as 13. There are four bedrooms plus a number of roll out couches that provide plenty of sleeping space. The linens, pillows and mattresses were all very good. The A/C was ok but the main second floor bedroom never really cooled off.
The kitchen was a highlight with excellent appliances and large numbers of cups, plates, glasses and plenty of paper goods including extra dish soap, hand soap and baggies. This we greatly appreciated. We enjoyed communal meals every night and the grill performed well. I would suggest that they add one, good sharp Henkel or Chicago Cutlery chef's knife.
My favorite parts of the property are the indoor/outdoor spaces. We utilized the screened-in porch, the 3 season room, the outdoor fire pit, the dock, the grill, the lawn area and the outdoor swing.
The house is located on short chanel that leads to Coldwater Lake so you can't swim out front, but the sandbar 400 yards from the cottage is amazing and quite the social scene all day long.
Finally Don and Laura were extremely responsive to the few issues we did have and we highly recommend this property for your next family vacation.
Great and Relaxing Time
We really enjoyed our stay in this comfortable cottage. Laura and Don did some nice upgrades and the new dishwasher, refrigerator, and stove were very nice. We appreciated the laundry facilities as well. Well supplied and excellent info for the cottage and the lake area. Prior to our arrival, we had timely and great communication. We had the opportunity to meet them and enjoyed meeting them. Weather wasn't very sunny for most of the week, but the fishing was good and the girls enjoyed the kayaks and the games. Kids swam out in the lake on the sandbars and had lots of fun. Easy drives to Coldwater, Fremont or Angola to get supplies or dinner. We will be back again... Thanks!
Very spacious and comfortable.
Nice meeting place for our family to get together. Plenty of space. Interesting layout of house. Could have used an upstairs bathroom.
Beautiful Coldwater Lake Cottage
Plenty of room and great area
Great week on Coldwater Lake!
Nice property, we met my brother and sister in law there and spent the week on the lake! Plenty of room for us and a few others who popped in. Would stay here again.
This home is great because of the large lot and easy parking. There are no homes on the south side of the home and a small trailer on the north side that is rarely occupied.
