Great vacation stay in pentwater

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place to stay. Within walking distance to town beach and most importantly ice cream. Very clean and well stocked. They had bikes and lots of beach gear for adults and kids. Owners care about your stay. Had small problem with sink late at night called them and they had someone out the next morning by 10:30. Would definitely recommend this home. Thanks

Everything clean and very organized

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Cottage at the Dune. The place was immaculate and the house was furnished/equiped with everything one could have needed. A lot of thought by the owner went into this. There were 4 bikes and helmets in the garage and a lot of beach toys, equipment in a wagon to haul the things to the beach. Aside from not having a lake view, the location was excellent. A very short distance from the center of town, but no street noise. My wife particularly loved the screened-in port in which she sat reading much of the time.

Beautiful and Well Maintained Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two kids and brother's family stayed at the cottage. We were immediately impressed by how well maintained and clean it was when we arrived. There is a lot of space in the house and it was well stocked. There were bikes and beach toys in the garage for us to use which was a bonus. The location of the house is perfect - close to the beach and downtown but far away enough to have some silence.

Will definitely be back.

Highly recommended.
