Property Details

Updated: Oct 19, 2016
6 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Timber Home On A Hill Near Bass Lake/Lake Michigan

A storybook setting on a wooded hill, this two story timber house with a walk out ‘kid’s zone’ basement living and sleeping area, is the perfect setting to get away from it all. Walking distance from Bass Lake (an all sport lake) and less than a mile to three Lake Michigan public access parks or beaches make this the ideal location for a family get away (see map). There are four upstairs bedrooms, one first floor bedroom and an open children’s bedroom in the basement level so it will sleep a total of 16 people. A full bathroom (3) is available on each level of our home. The ten foot wide wrap around porch is an ideal place to sit and enjoy the morning coffee or to sit in the breeze and talk with family and friends. This is a very private setting and yet has all the amenities; cable TV, internet, land line phone service, pure reverse osmosis drinking water and full house water filtering system, microwave, new glass top stove, and washer and dryer. The kids will love the game systems in the ‘kid zone’ living area and the whole family will enjoy evenings in the walkout screen porch on the lower level overlooking the fire pit area. The open concept living room, dining room and kitchen are ideal for entertaining. The classy antique décor of the timber house is delightful. Everything you need to enjoy your stay is available for you. A toaster, microwave, coffee maker, electronic tea pot, dishwasher, all dishes and pans, all linens and towels are available for your use. There is parking for two cars at the house and parking at the bottom of the hill for five more for your toys or cars, with total parking for 6-8 vehicles. Whether it is walking the wooded trails behind the home, visiting the popular shopping and dining areas of Pentwater (five miles) and Ludington (10 miles), enjoying Silver Lake State Park (17 miles), or just relaxing on the porch on the wooded hilltop, everything for your family dream vacation is within reach.

Very nice vacation rental for families

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 married couples and 4 young adults (total 12 people) stayed for 4 days/3 nights at 'The Lodge'. Our expectations were exceeded by this rental home. The house was spacious. The bedrooms were large with very comfortable beds. The owners have taken steps to assure a comfortable stay, with plenty of closet space for your personal belongings, hooks to hang your personal items, an empty pantry with room enough for all your food and pantry items, and more special touches that make your stay comfortable. The home is located in a quiet area, but very close to lots of activities in Pentwater and Ludington. We enjoyed our stay immensely and look forward to renting this same home again next year. The owner was easy to contact and was very helpful.

From the Owner

We chose this property because of the location and access to Lake Michigan beaches, Bass Lake, Pentwater and Ludington. And we wanted to have a special place to gather with our three children and eight grandchildren.

The porch, with the overhead fans, brings you back to the days when people enjoyed relaxing on their porch with family and friends enjoying the weather and view.
