We took family members here early in June right after school was out before the children became busy with summer activities. Our two cottages were great for having two bedrooms each; each kitchen area was equipped adequately for breakfast and lunch, but we enjoyed local restaurants for dinner. We could easily have eaten 'in' though. We used their pontoon boat... More

My husband, my son & myself recently stayed five nights in cottage #4. We felt like we were miles and miles away from home when in truth - we were a little over an hour away. Our 'home' for the week was very clean with all of the necessities to feel like home. The pool was within steps from our... More

We stayed here because it is close to Indiana Beach and it had a pool. The cottages are smaller especially with 3 small kids in them but for what they are they work. We did not sign up for a 5 start resort and didn't expect one. The pool was great for the kids because it is only 3 feet... More

The rooms need to be cleaned and disenfected better, the bathroom had lots of rust, lots of bugs in the cottage throughout, the TV was very small and didn't have any hdmi connections,the door that separates your room from the next room didn't make a difference because you can still hear everything in the next room and it was very...

Cottages and premises were very clean with plenty of room for all of us. The pool area was just as nice. Management (Scott ) and entire staff were very friendly and and took care... More

So my partner and I went to Blue Door on June 21st - June 24th 2015. I grew up on Lake Shafer at Stevenson point. So I love the lake and the atmosphere. I wanted some cheap and something close to the lake. That's how I found Blue Door Cottages. Glad I did find it and can't wait to make... More

We stayed at the Blue Door Cottages June 29-July 2 and had so much fun! You can tell when you pull in how well the management takes care of the property. We stayed in cottage #13 and it was very nice and roomy. The cottages are super clean and air conditioned. Lots of room for all activities, playground, grilling, open... More

I called for pricing on a double bungalow. The property owner was very rude and told me I was wasting his time because I asked him to honor the discount price listed on the website for the double bungalow. He claimed that he raised the price and the price listed in two separate places on the website was not accurate.... More

I offered you a 10 percent discount , even though I explained to you that you were looking at a link from last year which had expired. We have ethnic groups from all over the world here at Blue door. Never have I had any other complaints. I would like to apologize for making you feel this way, believe me... More

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.. :)
