PERFECT WEEK AT A PENTWATER LAKE MICHIGAN FRONT HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This was one of the most enjoyable vacations we had, because of this wonderful house which still feels like brand new. wonderful materials and a perfect elegant taste of furniture and decors in the entire house! We had a family reunion with people coming from Germany and they couldn't stopp expressing how empressed they were. Walking in the frint door all you see is the big blue lake. The lay out of the house is done so well that you can literally see the lake in every room (including bath rooms facing the back side). The tiney little inconveniances, like not having a washer and dryer, will certainly be eliminated in the near future. But the grill works perfectly fine, never to have to worry if there is enough gas. There is all the needed "tools" in the kitchen to cook, bake, etc. We had a perfect week, wonderful clean and private beach, perfect walkways, bridges from the carparking to the house as well as from the house to the beach. The guidance from the owner, including personal walk thru and explaining of the critical "must knows", is something not to be found easily on rental places.
We can't wait to be back but need to find out how to keep the crowd's away as the word travelled fast!
Best regards,
a german family

PERFECT HOUSE - AMAZING VIEW

  • 5 of 5
My first thoughts about this home were that it is even better than the pictures show. All of the family agreed about this. It was built in such a way, that a gorgeous, full view of beautiful blue Lake Michigan greets you at every possible window.

Everything is new and it is tastefully designed and decorated.

The home is three stories, which in and of itself provides privacy. However, their are no window treatments, which is still fine as the location is quite private....however, if you don't want to be awaken by the pretty sunrise, you will want a pair of eye blinds. I would have liked blinds for that purpose and to get the children to bed earlier.

The grill is in a great spot on the huge deck; and is directly hooked to a very large propane tank so no worries about running out mid meal.

There are decks off 3rd floor bedroom, one of the 2nd floor bedrooms, and a large one off the back that can be accessed by large sliders across the back of the house.

The home is on a bluff so be prepared for steps to the beach. Even with small children, it was fine by us. The deck, stairs and walk over were a pleasant walk for us. Just be prepared if you have any elderly or infants; the walk to the beach could be a challenge.

I would say even though there were no blinds on bedrooms and no washer/dryer - it was FANTASTIC. We will very likely stay here next summer.

SISTERS' WEEK

Sisters' Week
  • 4 of 5
The home is beautiful, the setting ideal, the beach was just wonderful, and the proximity to Pentwater was just right. Five sisters + 2 friends enjoyed the week immensely with plenty of quality time in an idyllic setting. A few things could make it much more enjoyable and also bring it up to the standard for the cost. Furnishings were mismatched and often of poor quality (cookware and kitchen items especially; knives very inadequate), if provided at all (e.g., no bakeware, no wine glasses, only 2 dish towels but 8 pot holders (???)). The afternoon sun is quite brutal, so window treatments would be a big plus. A washer/dryer would be very helpful as well. The real surprise, though, was the lack of technology. No cell phone reception (therefore for safety really should have a landline), no internet, no TV. We brought our own TV with DVD player so that we could watch movies on occasion. Recommend the stay, but for the cost, we were expecting a bit higher quality furnishings. Also, the beach is very dog friendly. It was torture not having our babies with us. Hoping the owners would consider a pet policy.

AWESOME VACATION SPOT - A PLACE OF SERENITY

  • 5 of 5
Wow! My family and I had a wonderful staycation at this property. It was everything we imagined it to be. The owners were very pleasant and the property is just how they described it. In my own words... It was a place of serenity for our family. There is plenty of room and things to do. The view of Lake Michigan is absolutely beautiful. We highly recommend renting this property!

ULTIMATE VACATION

  • 5 of 5
One amazing week in paradise! We had our wedding on the beach- could not have planned a more amazing day. The weather was perfect, water and sunset were breathtaking. The home is absolutely beautiful! The owners went above and beyond to meet with us and help accommodate us for our wedding. It was a long hike to the beach, but well worth it! It would be nice to have a washer/dryer there, and it was not the most kid friendly place (only b/c of stairs and terrain). It was the perfect adult group vacation spot. We highly recommend renting!! It was so great, after our wedding we had friends that drove home to Chicago-requested the rest of the week off work-and drove back to enjoy pentwaters finest!!!

SUPERB!

  • 5 of 5
The property is superb. Brand new home with many luxury features. Lots of places to sleep, wonderful views of Lake Michigan, and (essentially) a private beach. The home is quality built and is absolutely beautiful. The main floor deck is perfect for evening dinners or morning coffee, and is very large. The third-floor balcony provides wonderful views of the lake and sunsets. The bathrooms and kitchen are opulent and everyone in our group had a great place to sleep.

The home does lack some of the traditional items you would find in a beach rental, for example, the cooking utensils are limited (but bearable), there are no beach chairs, towels, equipment (umbrella, volleyball net). Also, there is no outdoor grill, which is really the only thing that our group truly missed. Cell phone service in the house is a little spotty for non-Verizon subscribers, but Verizon customers should have service in the house and on the decks. Most non-Verizon people were able to use their phones on the decks or the beach. One item of caution - sometimes our phones would pick up Wisconsin cell towers from across the lake, and that would throw the clock off (Pentwater is on eastern time, Wisconsin central).

A couple of things we noticed that we'd wished we'd known about: Pentwater, although only about a mile away, is very quaint and has a number of shops and restaurants. It, however, does not have a large supermarket. The grocery store is small and cute, but has very minimal selection of foods. Also, there are at least 50 steps down from the house to the beach. Not a problem for most adults, but that could be problematic for groups with elderly, handicapped, or young children. (But the beach makes the trip worth it). Also, there is no TV or Internet (honestly, we preferred it that way, as a retreat, but some may expect these things).

The owners are extremely flexible and helpful. We found this place, literally, the day we needed to rent it (our other plans had fallen through last minute). We called at about noon local time and the owners were willing to drive up from their home that afternoon to ready the property for our arrival in the evening. Our group was traveling from all over the country, and the owners were flexible in accepting our payment in installments over the first two days of our stay (as members of our group arrived).
