LARGE SUNNY LAKEHOUSE, PERFECT FOR FAMILY TIME, SLEEPS 20

Montague House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms + Attached Unit, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 19-20)

This is a great place for large groups or small. Over 5200 sq.ft. of living space. It was a US Lifesaving Station that was rehabbed 10 years ago. The house is very private with no one on either side of you and there is a nature filled bayou on one side which is great for bird watching and fishing etc. There is a small craft boat launch very close.

The front yard is very large and flat & can park multiple vehicles. The house is steps to White Lake. The large public white sandy beach of Lake Michigan is a very short walk. The lay-out is very comfortable and offers individual privacy as well as wonderful gathering places. The first floor has a large kitchen (2 ovens ,island range large fridge/freezer,microwave,2 sinks , dishwasher).

The kitchen opens to the great room which is steps from the lake and a very large multi-level deck. Great views and breezes. There is a large rec room w/ a foosball table and 47' flat screen TV. There is a master bedroom on this floor w/ a large private bathroom w/ large soaking tub and steam shower and king bed. There is a private outdoor shower, as well, conveniently located off the side deck.

The second floor has 5 bedrooms around a gathering space that opens to a large private upper deck. The second floor also has 2 full bathrooms. Kid's love the space we call the 'apartment' , this has a sleeping area, living, dining/game area, kitchenette, and goes up stairs to a great look-out room/office which has beautiful views.

The feel of the house is very lake cottage with white walls ,hardwood floors, bead board, beachy, summery furnishings etc. We are next to the channel between White Lake and Lake Michigan, so the boats go slowly by, very quiet and pretty. The house is in a cove, so we are sheltered from the wind and we get great sun exposure on the decks.

There are 2 fire-pits which are great for bonfires at night by the lake.{one the deck & one on the beach} The lake gets great moon risings and Lake Michigan has incredible sunsets.The sun sets very late in summer, so you can make the most out of your day and evening. The towns of Montague and Whitehall are just a few minutes away w/ shopping and dining, canoe, kayak rentals, tackle & bait supplies etc.

A short scenic drive to dune rides at Silver Lake and the cute town of Pentwater. Michigan's Adventure, 5 miles away, is a very fun amusement & water park. Old Channel Golf course is very nice, very close & very inexpensive public course. You are 30 min. to Muskegan airport and 1 hr to Grand Rapids airport.

Please contact us with any questions. Call or email, whichever you prefer. White Lake is a beautiful spot with so much to offer. Thank you for considering this property for your vacation.

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect spot for a large family! There was plenty of room for the kids to play and adults to hide away with a book. The pictures do not do this place justice. It is very clean and tastefully decorated. The large kitchen was great for the amount of cooks we had and stalked with everything we needed. It rained most of the time we were there, but no one suffered from cabin fever. There is just a short walk to the pier where many in our group enjoyed fishing. The home is located on a quiet creek and almost tucked in the sand dunes so there is a lot of privacy! The owner's were very accommodating and I would definitely recommend to a large family. 5 stars!

Warm, spacious memory maker!

  • 5 of 5
Our time spent at your wonderful house was memorable! We loved the wide open spaces especially for our gatherings and game playing. Our family, especially enjoyed the outdoor fire pit on the deck. The nights were cool enough and the stars didn't disappoint.
Meals were easy to prepare in the large kitchen, everyone loved the dishwasher's higher than usual position! I appreciated the extras in the kitchen, spices, sugar, extra paper towels, it communicated a spirit of generosity and that this house was not just a rental but a home. I liked that.

Every June we look forward to spending a week together as a large, close family. This is our first year at White Lake and hopefully we can enjoy renting the house there every year! We made so many memories there that we will always treasure! The house is amazing! There was plenty of room for all and the place was exceptionally clean. The kitchen was very well stocked, organized, and spacious! We also utilized the extra fridge/freezer as well. The beds were very comfortable and the bonus was the king sized beds! The boys absolutely loved sleeping up in the look out room on the third floor! The large game room was a hit with all the kids. It was such a luxury having the thick, quality, white towels stocked! Having the washer/dryer allowed us to come home with clean laundry as well. The kids had a ball on our own private beach there as well as taking the short walk or bike ride down to the pier to fish! Even the younger kids pulled in some big fish! (over a foot long!) The adults had to grab a net and help pull them in! The sunsets are spectacular at White Lake which you can enjoy sitting around the fire pit on the spacious decks! Everyone votes to come back again next summer if available! A special thank you to the owners and caretakers as this special week together bonding together as a large family would not be possible without you and your hospitality. You have been extremely helpful giving us all the rental information and making the process so simple.
Thanks again! We will definitely recommend this fine place to others!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review of The Cottage. We are so happy to hear that everyone enjoyed their week on the lake. Being a native of Montague, it's a real treat to be able to share White Lake and the "Big" lake with a group who truly enjoys the area.
It is our goal to do some improvements every year to make your stay the very best possible. Fluffy towels and all of the other things you mentioned should be the basis for your comfort. Please let us know if you have any suggestions that will help us to make your stay the very best possible.
We look forward to having you at The Cottage again soon.

Very sspacious and great view of White Lake and partial sunset view of Lake Michigan. Walk one block to Lake Michigan pier and beach. Great fun watching the boats go in and out of White Lake. Protected cove for my boat and 2 minutes you're on Lake Michigan. Sandy protected beach on White Lake too! Lots of private living areas for multiple families and big decks on both levels. Private master suite.

White Lake Gem

  • 5 of 5
This roomy lake house is uniquely situated between White Lake and Lake Michigan. The calm warm water and gentle beach on White Lake is surrounded with natural habitats of dune and bayou for watching wildlife. The house is a short walk from Lake Michigan for spectacular sunsets and adventurous water fun. The accommodations are outstanding. Shopping for food and beverages is an easy drive to Montague. Although there are many places of interest nearby, we were happy to enjoy the beaches and lake house decks during our week at the end of June. The property managers were most helpful and friendly. It was a joy to share this lovely house with our family.

Fabulous place for a large family gathering

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was this past week. June 9-16. The home was exactly as promised. Spacious, comfortable and plenty of room for all 17 of us. The view of White Lake was fantastic. We took advantage of the beach, fishing from the side dock, firepit, and enjoyed nightly movies on the deck with a dvd projector we brought. In the house were plenty of tv's and dvd players (we took our own movie collection) and games to entertain all ages. Good restaurants, bike trails, interesting harbor towns and many family friendly activities within 30 min of Montaque. We enthusiastically recommend this home.
