Gorgeous views and a comfy, lovely home.

  • 5 of 5

Ahhh...such a stunning location! There are so many places to perch and enjoy the views of the Lake. We saw otters in the am, ships in the afternoon and an eagle at sunset. The water was delightful and our beach walks led us to the Stony Lake & Camp Minnewanka. The home is lovely and comfy -- it's clearly a place for families and friends to celebrate the beauty of Michigan. The dunes behind the home are a challenging hike but the views of lake and forest are highly rewarding!

It's like looking at the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very homey and comfortable. The outside decks were wonderful for visiting with family, reading books, taking naps and eating all of our meals outdoors. The view of the lake is beautiful and the sunsets were always breath taking. A real bonus are the sand dunes directly behind the cottage - good for exploring, taking in the panorama from the top and racing down in the soft sand. This is my favorite vacation spot of all the places I have visited.

BEAUTIFUL PLACE!!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a WONDERFUL place to stay, beautiful inside & out, clean & well maintained! We loved watching the sunsets & paddle boarding in the mornings! Loved going for walks on the beach & walking down to the channel! Fun watching boats & large freighters passing by! Golf near by, and fun shops/resturants in Pentwater. Also, enjoyed wine tasting near by, there is lots to do, but mostly enjoyed doing nothing, but laying on the beach or sitting on the large beautiful deck overlooking the big lake!

The owner was very pleasant and easy to work with, and the cottage manager Pat was very friendly! Overall, we had a wonderful time! Definitly plan to be back to enjoy the cottage!!! Thanks!

Unbelievable Place for Class Reunion

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place for a long week end getaway with old classmates from school. A beautiful beach home right on the lake. Plenty of room for all to relax and enjoy each others company. Wonderful roomy kitchen for home-cooked meals. Love the deck and the view, even on a rainy weekend in September. Very close to beautiful golf courses and only an hour from the Grand Rapids airport for company from Naples, FL. Can't wait to come back again next September! Been to many other locations for reunions and this topped them all.

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay with a few of my friends and my mother for a girls getaway weekend. Even though it was not yet summer, the weather was beautiful and the walks on the beach fantastic. I have traveled the world and still think the beaches of Lake Michigan are the best.

The place felt like home, warm and inviting with all the special touches for a comfortable stay. Very clean and well maintained. I would definitely recommend this property for a romantic getaway, a girls getaway, families with children or adventure seekers. Lots to see and do around the area. A beautiful place to relax and get away from it all or do it all.

Great antiquing, wine tasting, biking, kayaking, etc. in the area. Good restaurants too!

Owner's Response: Good to hear your happy memories of last spring, isn’t it is nice to be on the lake in the early season and be the only footprints on the beach?! I remember you enjoyed the wood stove on the cool evenings and I am glad you found the local wines to share with your friends. Come back anytime!

Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time here. The description was accurate with a great location to get away from it all. Or, if you wanted, many things to do was just a short drive away. Everything was well maintained and the owners were friendly and informative to work with. We are looking forward to returning to such a beautiful place.
