About Denise

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.





Denise Donnelly Hernandez - Sankofa was the best choice my sisters and my daughter made together for our trip "back home". everything was perfect!denise could'nt have been more gracious.we will with out a doubt make Sankofa part of each and every summer journey to our home town

You dont rent Sankofa, you experience it.

  • 5 of 5
I am in the Navy stationed in Washington state so we decided to vacation in my home town of Muskegon for Memorial weekend. My two children are older and we realized that this would be our last vacation before they started their own lives. We chose Cottage Sankofa because of the outstanding reviews. We were not disappointed!!
The front faces beautiful Lake Michigan and is better than any beach in California or Florida. Activities from biking on the beach, swimming and we even sailed on a replica ship from the 1800's. Then the back of the cottage is wooded with a nice little fire pit. The evenings we would build fires, make samores and play guitars. It is like having two distinct cottages for the price of one.
There are many activities near Muskegon. We climbed a lighthouse, went on dune rides, toures a WWII Submarine and spent a day at Michigan Adventure Park. I really wish we would have had more time to see everything. The whole family agrees that our experience at Sankofa was the best vacation ever!!!

Mother Nature entertains here

  • 5 of 5
Black squirrels, deer, fall foliage, and, of course, the beautiful beach and sunsets made this a woodland Eden. The cottage is very well equipped. The front porch is bright and cozy. A furnace, electric fireplace, and fans kept the temperature comfortable. We loved it!

Cozy Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We were very impressed with this beautiful little cottage! It was very clean and decorated tastefully. Everything was there for our needs; we just brought our personal effects. There were plenty of towels, blankets, sheets, etc. The cottage is nestled in the woods and out the front porch window is a beautiful view of Lake Michigan just across the road. We tried to eat our meals at the local restaurants and especially like Hennessy's Irish Pub in town. They serve a really good breakfast at a reasonable price....the food was great for dinner as well. We ventured out to a little hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurant called
Mi Parral (per Google recommendations) in a not-so-nice area of town but it turned out to be excellent home cooked food; we would definitely go back again. The Farmers Market on Saturday morning was a lot of fun; they had mostly locally grown food and baked goods....very nice. This was our first trip to Muskegon and it made for an enjoyable long weekend getaway....we will definitely be back!

Very quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this cottage for three nights. It was a relaxing experience. The property is in a great location. Tucked up at the end of the short road with woods behind you and a few neighbors to the side of the house, but not too close and very quiet. You can walk to the beach in one minute directly in front of the house. The beach is beautiful; wide and clean, never crowded. We spent one day of our trip relaxing on the beach and felt like we had it to ourselves. It felt more like the ocean than a lake. Loved our day there. The cottage has some beach chairs in the basement and beach towels on the porch which made the day perfect. The walk out to the lighthouses was easy and fun. We took a long walk one morning and it was easy with so many sidewalks everywhere. We had a rainy day on our last day there and took a short drive to the town of Pentwater. It was a cute, small town with shops and places to eat and drink. The kitchen is well stocked, and has everything you need, a full sized fridge, microwave, oven, coffee maker. A wild turkey with her little babies came walking through the front yard one morning, and a deer. We went to a West Michigan Whitecaps baseball game and really enjoyed that. Glad we were able to make a visit and see Michigan, our first time in the state, hopefully not our last!

Great cottage, lovely setting.

Great cottage really close to gorgeous lake beach. Muskegon and the surrounding area is a great place for foodies and those who appreciate craft brews and ciders. And this cottage makes a great home base.
