This quiet lake front cottage located on Little Otter Lake in the Lake James Chain offers the best of both worlds. Little Otter Lake is great for fishing, kayaking and swimming. A fifteen minute boat ride through the Big Otter Lake channel connects you to skiing, tubing and more on Snow Lake, Lake James and Jimmerson Lake. This two story, 1,100 square foot home, with 160 feet of lake frontage has all the amenities needed for a great vacation located 1 mile from Pokagon State Park.
“The Little Otter Retreat is a cozy, charming cottage with an amazing lake view from the deck. It was very chilly and in the 30s during our visit but the home was warm and comfortable inside. The first floor and main bedroom have lake views that were beyond what we had expected. The home is clean, comfortable and definitely a nice retreat. Fremont is a quaint, quiet town. We especially enjoyed 6Autumns restaurant for great selection of adult beverages and some very nice food (homemade soup flights). We also liked Mad Anthony’s (Coffee stout float...yes, beer and ice cream!) and Briali Winery and would recommend a visit there for the adults in the family. We very much enjoyed our stay!”
Please read all sections :-) Quiet lake during the week. Very humble but super relaxing. Boats and water sports and fishing allowed on this lake so there’s lots to watch. Quaint, fresh super cute newly remodeled cottage perfect for that quick getaway or week or weekend stay. Play in the sand. Jump in the lake! Bonfires and s’mores. Family walks. Gaze at the stars! Nettle lake is full of family fun, romantic for a couple or even a great time with a group of friends!
“Our family loved the Lake get away at Mara’s. We truly enjoyed our stay. The paddle boats and kayak were especially fun, but so was having a family game night, and just enjoying the backyard patio. Time stops when you’re at the lake. It’s a nice refreshment! Mara was wonderful about communicating, and she has the gift of hospitality.”
Same cozy cottage. New owners. Fully renovated vintage lake cottage. The perfect escape for a relaxing long weekend or entire week. The house is small (575 sq ft), and the perfect size for a couple and friends or a small family. There are views of the lake and it sits across the street. Tons of outdoor space! Great sunlight throughout the day with space to cook and entertain your small group. Close to Trine University.
“This place was immaculate, tastefully designed and completely updated. Quiet most of time with the sounds of birds singing. We took walks around the neighborhood and the nearby State Park and enjoyed it very much. We cooked our own meals ( except for Tom's Doughnuts mmmm ) so I can't comment on the restaurants. Kitchen has all the accoutrements that you will need to make something delicious so bring a protein and a veggie and you are good to go. Nice touches throughout the house that makes you feel cared for. Really a great couple of nights of rest and relaxation in a beautiful setting.”
