My husband Phil and I have known each other since we were in grade school and dated since we were in Junior High School. We grew up in the area and spend most of our summers as children, teens and then adults at the beach!
Denise purchased this cottage in 2007
Why Denise chose Muskegon
The moment we stepped foot on the property, we knew we were 'home' and had to buy it!! We purchased the cottage originally with the plan of making it our retirement home. After major renovations of the cottage, we decided to make it a vacation rental (seeing I wasn't ready to retire). We researched names for the cottage and decided on SANKOFA which is a word from Ghana meaning 'we must go back to our past; to recreate our future...'
What makes this cottage unique
It is not just the view of Lake Michigan or the fact that the beach is 'right there' that makes Cottage Sankofa special...or the fact that it is one of the only cottage rentals at Pere Marquette Beach that has the beach view out front and wooded dunes as the back yard with walking trails...or the fact viewing deer on the property is a daily sighting...it is the Cottage itself that makes your visit special-we hope you enjoy all of our 'extra touches' as much as other guests! We love sharing the magic of Sankofa!!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Katie-My sisters, neice and I have all just returned from beautiful Sankofa in Muskegon where we all grew up and re-united again after 24 years. The place was so serene and beautiful. Thank you Denise for providing this simple cottage to anyone that would be priviledged to stay there. We had a wonderful time and so enjoyed our little "deer" friend, Dockers, Farmer's Market, the forest and of course beautiful Lake Michigan. We can't wait to come back.
