This was our second stay at Blue Door Cottages, with the first being 6 years ago. We stayed in the exact same cottage and were very pleased to see that the condition of the cottage and the entire property felt just as nice and new as it did the first time around. Cottage 10 is bright and airy and has...

We recently stayed at Blue Door Cottages for a family vacation and had a great time! The cottage was very cute, clean, and comfortable. Scott, the property manager, was very accommodating to our needs. The cottages are conveniently located about 3 miles from Indiana Beach. We would definitely stay again!

We rented one half of a bungalow for a 4 night stay. We LOVED the pool and fishing from the docks across the street. We ate dinner at Jakes and were not disappointed. We had a table outside on the deck overlooking the lake. Indiana Beach is a short drive - great for when you spend all day in the...

We rented the big cabana and a bungalow for our family vacation to Indiana Beach. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. The kids loved the pool, playset and fishing on the dock across the street. Great quiet location yet conveniently located 5 minutes from Indiana Beach. We were very happy with our stay.

We rented 4 cottages for a family vacation with my husband's family. It was nice for each family to have their own space. The kids loved the pool and small playground set on the property! The property manager, Scott, was nice and extremely helpful....He fixed any problems that arose very quickly! There is a nice small restaurant right across the...

Several members of my family stayed in three cottages in early June. We found the rooms quite nice: right sized rooms, very clean with pretty much so anything you would need. The management team was extremely accommodating, responding to any inquiries we threw at them. They offer a pontoon boat for your pleasure and will gladly take you on the...

my wife and I travel a lot now that we're retired, and have found the blue door cottages to be one of our favorites. The manager and his wife went out of the way to make us welcome. Even though it was raining both days when we were there, they suggested places for us to go and still enjoy ourselves....

We stayed in cottage #4 for three nights. It was my wife, myself, and our 18 month old daughter. There were two bedrooms so we had plenty of room. Our daughter really enjoyed the pool that was within the facility. We tried Indiana Beach but only stayed for about an hour and a half because there wasn't much for our...

Our days were overcasts and rainy for most of the time but the cottages were clean and comfortable and the family get together was a roaring success. Enough sun popped through that we even managed to spend time on the pontoon boat touring the lake. We all had a great time and look forward to a return visit when the...
