Very Good

“Can't wait to go back!”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2016

Excellent experience! Clean, cozy and fun! The owners Jan & John were amazing. Always accessible via text for my last minute questions and local suggestions of things to do and places to try. My husband and I rented and invited up my sister, her husband and 3 kids. Everyone had a place to sleep and everyone was comfortable. The kitchen and bath and newly updated and clean! A short walk across tot he beach and a ten minute drive to town. Love it! We rented a pontoon boat, fished, swam in the lake and at the beach. Thanks!!! We will be back soon!

Response from the owner Jane & Tim thanks for the fantastic review. We can't wait to see you guys next week as you enjoy your stay at Papa's cottage. John & Jan

“Very clean and comfortable!”

The cottage was perfect for my stay in LaPorte. It was so beautiful to look out at Pinelake especially in the evening at sunset. The cottage was also very clean and I felt very comfortable during my stay.

“So comfortable, Felt right at home”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2014

My husband and I and our 2 teenage boys stayed in the cottage over Christmas. My husband's elderly mother lives in a nearby town in Indiana. Jan was so responsive to my questions, had decorated the house beautifully for the holidays, had baked chocolate chip cookies for us when we arrived and more! The kids loved that there was wifi access. The view of the lake is so beautiful. We had a white Christmas and enjoyed walking in the neighborhood. The full kitchen was so nice to have. Everything has been renovated and yet the charm of this home is everywhere. Having John and Jan right next door was good when we had questions as to restaurants, grocery stores etc. The furniture is comfortable and clean. The whole place was very clean in fact. I appreciate that. I just cannot say enough good things about Jan and John and Cozy Country Cottage PineLake!!! Thank you, Cindy and David

“Truley's cottage is charming and lovely”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2013

What we were looking for: Relaxing getaway from Chicago, stress free, a lake, some things to do in the area, that is Pet Friendly. What we found at Truley's Cottage: All of that times ten! Jan and John, the owners of the cottage, to the rescue! Because they just started renting this year, we got lucky that their cottage was available that weekend. Charming, homey, immaculate, perfect - some of the words uttered within the first minute we walked in. Jan has the eye for decorating, the place is really cute. Pictures don't even remotely do it justice, what you get is a spacious living/dining room, 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, a full kitchen, as well as the outdoor space. The backyard is huge, has a deck with table, fireplace, and gas grill. The front also has a dining table, and a lounger. We actually opted to chill out in the front, as you could see the lake just down the bluff from here. More about the lake - Pine Lake is huge. Where the Truley Cottage is located, there are steps across the street that take you straight down to the water. Here you'll find their small community beach, although we didn't see a soul any of the times we went, it was all ours. (Other than the baby bullfrogs at night!) We ended up bringing a lot of food with us, which we eventually took back home because of all the great restaurants we found in town, and Michigan city. We rented a pontoon boat on Pinelake, from the Blue Huron hotel about a mile away. We went antiquing in town (Jan can give you great tips on where to go), and then went to Garwood Orchards, a U-Pick orchard. We also found another farm for fresh eggs and mums, Burek farms We also went to Shady Creek Winery in Michigan City, about a 20 minute ride. We ended up leaving a book sitting outside, and Jan was nice enough to contact us and mail it back. They live next door, so if you need anything, it's nice that they're there. LaPorte Indiana was an unexpected pleasure, and we will definitely be back in the future.

“Great owners, wonderfull little cottage”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2013

Jan and John are extremely friendly and helpful. They patiently answered all email and phone questions. When we arrived they showed us every aspect of the house and made us feel very comfortable - and Jan had baked us some chocolate chip cookies. They sincerely told us not to hesitate to come over and ask more questions (they live next door which is nice). John showed me the beach that you have access to as well as the dock from which we could fish. The neighborhood is a quiet family type of neighborhood and this is a nice place for kids as the basement is a small game room with foosball and a poker table. They also gave our boys access to bikes - and the neighborhood is good for children to bike in. Lisa and I enjoyed having our early morning coffee on the back deck hearing the birds chirp in the woods behind the house. Jan and John are very nice people, and so is Truly their extremely friendly and quiet dog (she does not run loose but loves to give anyone who visits her licks!). We came from Boston, ma to visit relatives in the La Porte area and we would rent this place again in a heart beat. Best of luck Jan and John, Phil & Lisa Plageman
