perfect

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Brower Cottage was perfect! The cottage is comfortable and clean. We've had some experiences with listings that didn't quite live up to the pictures or the description, but Brower Cottage is everything it claims to be and more! The lake is beautiful, the cottage is pretty and comfortable, the lot is private and wooded, and the location is perfect. It's a great getaway for a couple, or a family vacation for a family with kids and pets.

Ultimate cottage for family break by the lake!

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED our stay at Brower Cottage, we stayed for 3 nights at the start of November with a 3 year old. The cottage was very clean and tidy, with everything you need to enjoy your stay.

The listing and pictures are very accurate on the website - the only thing I'd mention is that the buk beds are double beds which we didn't realise, which was not a problem for us, but thought I'd mention it as it's obviously additional space!

Although the cottage did not have a fire inside, it was really warm and the heating was easy to control. We managed to spend a couple of hours by the outside firepit in the evening, and sat by the lake when the sun went down - which is beautiful!

The owner was easily contactable, and even rang on our first day to check we were ok etc - which was really nice. It was really easy to gain access to the cabin as well. There is a good TV, DVD and games selection for entertainment if it's not summer.

The kitchen is incredibly well stocked with all utensils, crockery etc you will need and there is also a bbq, and plenty of seating.

We enjoyed crunching through the fall leaves, delicious coffee and gift shops in Saugutuck and spent a whole day antiquing in the area.

We would definitely recommend this to friends and family!

Gals of 1981 Gettaway

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd retreat to Brower Cottage. 5 friends from high school once again shared a lot of laughter in this well kept, cozy cottage. It really had everything we needed and plenty to do in the area. We love the fall here as the colors are always amazing and water is beautiful. We canoed, kayaked, did a lot of walking of course (all the way to the vineyard) and spent each night by the fire. This year we didn't even head into town. We felt content to just hang at the cottage and enjoy our surroundings. Joe was very responsive to questions and once again welcomed us with a phone call to be sure all well. We have already picked our dates for next year!

Private serene settiing

  • 5 of 5
I have wanted to stay at Brower Cottage for a few years, unfortunately our calendars never lined up. This year were lucky enough to come twice. The house is near the end of a dead end street. The big side yard and woods on the other side of the house give you lots of space, which is unusual for a lakefront property. Inside, the cottage is super clean. Great views of the lake from the deck, kitchen, dining room and living room. We sat in the adirondack chairs on the dock every morning and evening. The location is perfect. We spent one afternoon in Holland, one in Douglas and one in Saugatuck. Great restaurants, wineries, shopping, breweries, creameries, and a new hard cider mill all within a 10-20 minute drive. Cannot wait to go back.

Peaceful, immaculate lake cottage

  • 5 of 5
Brower Cottage is tucked away along the north shore of beautiful Hutchens Lake. The cottage is extremely family friendly, neat as pin, open and peaceful. The attention to detail was the best I have ever experience in a rental. The cottage was fresh and clean with nice linens and kitchen items. The kayak was a terrific way to explore the entire lake. More rafts, floats and toys than a family could ever need. Easy access to restaurants, orchards for berry picking, and shopping in Douglas or Saugatuck. All around a great week!
