My girlfriend & I stayed 1 night over the weekend & had a great time at Lake Shafer. Wished we could have stayed another night. Very clean room and had that beachy feel like resort. I will come back again with my boyfriend. Also, with friends next time too. I recommend this place for anyone of all ages.. :)

The beds are uncomfortable, and no sheets for the sofa bed. He charge every room we had with a phony charge after we left of $50- 90 for towels and rocks in the pool from the kids. We tried to call him and ask questions but he refused to answer. Don't stay there!!!!

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.... More
