  • Great Getaway


    The owner contacted me beforehand with helpful information and a pleasant welcome. The cottage was nicely decorated, very clean and fully equipped. I especially loved the deck overlooking the water and the all seasons room. I had a wonderful stay and highly recommend this property.

  • Relaxing weekend


    What a beautiful cottage and the deck out on the water was wonderful. They had everything set up and the decor was beautiful. The host checked with us when we seen him outside to make sure everything was perfect. Loved the place and will be back next summer for sure.

  • Great stay


    The property manager was easy to communicate with! Always great in my book! The cottage was cozy, very well decorated, and perfect size! It had everything we needed! We enjoyed the lake view from the screened in porch and played games. We did travel with a dog and toddler, so the grounds wasn’t great. No area really to walk our dog or to let the toddler run around. To swim, you need a life jacket and our dog/toddler couldn’t swim because it is deep. We spent the day at Indiana Beach and it is close to some good restaurants. We would be back for an adult only getaway!

    Response from owner: "Thanks Jessica, we're glad you and your family enjoyed your stay! The cottage has a good size front yard facing the lake as well as area along the circle drive. The Tippecanoe River runs through Lake Shafer so it can be deep in different areas. We're sorry there isn't an area for toddlers to swim, however, we have no control over the waterfront. We hope you'll visit us again!"

    We SO enjoyed our few days at Shafer Lake. Our little cottage was perfect and we rarely left the beautiful deck! Jane and Bob were fantastic hosts…friendly and helpful with all our questions. We hope to go back some time!
