My family (7 adults and 3 kids ages 1 - 3) stayed in two of the cottages. Unfortunately, I booked too late to get a double, but that was not a problem at all - we only had one cottage between us. We were only there for one night (went to Indiana Beach the next day), but we enjoyed it....

We stayed at Blue Door cottages early in July 2012, and it was a great experience. We will definitely return. The cottages were VERY clean, and had everything you could ask for. I had to drag my daughter out of the pool every night, the pool area was very well maintained, as were the grounds in general. The location is...

We booked last minute due to our circumstances and had a very pleasant stay. Management was over accommodating since we didn't have anyone checking in before or after our stay during the week. The cottage was so cute and clean, very beachy and colorful! The pool was fun and refreshing and across the road was a waterfront restaurant that we...

Blue Door Cottages made for a wonderful place for our 2013 Ott Family Vacation. We had approximately 25 family members from ages of 2 1/2 to 64 spending the week. The cottages were clean and cozy. The outdoor picnic and fire pit area was just perfect for our group. Scott, the manager, was so accommodating. He even gave up a...

My family (6 adults and 4 children) came for a weekend stay. It was so clean and just plain cute. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The grounds are neat and clean. The pool was crystal clear. There was plenty to do, plenty of seating, and plenty of fun. I felt comfortable having 4 young children there, knowing it was...

We had a awesome stay! It's very clean and comfortable. It's a home away from home. We were able to rent a pontoon boat and tool around the lake for a few hours. Thanks to Scott for all of your help and recomandations.

I loved this place! My family and I stayed for two nights and I cannot say enough good things! The cottages were lovely and clean and I really enjoyed the campsite type atmosphere surrounding them! Being able to walk out our door and go right across to the lake was a major plus! The pool and grounds were very clean...

Blue Door Cottages is a great place to stay. I can't wait to get back! The service is top notch! Clean rooms, pool, bathrooms were spotless, great atmosphere all around!

My family (2 adults 3 children) stayed in a single cottage over memorial day weekend 2013. Blue door cottages was clean and reasonably priced. If you have ever looked around Monticello you will quickly find most accommodations are outdated, musty, and run down. I liked that our kids had their own room. We all slept well. The kids loved the...

We went there at the beginning of October just looking for a friend getaway on a great value! We enjoyed the boat for a few hours, the guys golfed at Tippecanoe (which was amazing) and the gals enjoyed the winery tour at Whyte Horse winery! The fire pits were amazing (and perfect for a cool October evening), we grilled steaks...
