Perfect Relaxing Beachfront Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to this cottage and to Lake Michigan. Our family of four had a wonderful week long vacation here that, at least for my 9 year old daughter, beat out our trip to Disney World last year. She said that the only thing that would have made it better would have been to never go out! We did go check out Pentwater, though. We were a bit off season so some of the shops were closed, but we knew that ahead of time. We also went to Ludington to check out Big Sable Lighthouse.
Other than that we spent lots of time hanging out in this house. We read books, watched a few movies (they have cable and Netflix), enjoyed a couple fires in the fire pit, swam and jumped around in the waves and walked the beach. It was delightful.
The house was clean and comfortable. It had all the items we might need to cook and enjoy the beach. There were even lots of random household items like bandages, shampoo, tons of towels and I found a couple pins in the bathroom drawer that came in handy while we were there. It is decorated with pictures from the owners' families which gives it a lovely personal feel.
I experienced great communication with the owner by email. I had several questions during the planning process that were answered in a timely and pleasant manner.
We all agree we'd be happy to come back to stay here again!

Great Lakefront Beachhouse

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent 4 days at this lovely beach-house in Pentwater with our 2 grown children and two grandchildren. Couldn't have asked for a more delightful stay. Patty, the owner, was most helpful and was always available if we had any questions. The house was exactly as listed ... spacious and exceptionally clean and well equipped for anything a person would need, right down to the beach towels, sand chairs and beach toys for the kids. There’s this wonderful room in the back of the house, stocked with cards, games and movies, that we made good use of. And the water view from the deck, was simply gorgeous. You can have your meals there, while enjoying a stunning sunset. You're just a few steps to the water, where you'll find a great beach with the purest white sand you can imagine. The grandkids spent most of the time splashing around in the water and building beautiful sand castles for all to admire and the adults had a great time fishing and kayaking along the shore. When we were able to pry everybody away from the beach, we drove into town to enjoy the lay-back ambiance of Pentwater. We loved it all, but I think our favorite was the ice cream shop right across the street from the community gathering spot. One evening, they had a very entertaining blue grass band playing, where the kids had so much fun dancing and clapping along to the beat of the music. I could go on and on ... suffice it to say, this is a very nice area that can be enjoyed over and over again. We'll definitely be back. Thanks Patty for a wonderful vacation.

Great weekend stay at classic Pentwater cottage - endless beach right outside your door

  • 4 of 5
Two of us spent an enjoyable late summer weekend at this cottage. It's a traditional Pentwater cottage - an older wood house tucked back in the woods right on the dune overlooking Lake Michigan. The cottage is well equipped with cooking supplies, linens, beach towels, etc. so we didn't need to lug much from home. We spent most of our time out on the beach...just a few steps down the dune from the house. We loved having a cookout in the permanent fire ring the owners have set up on the dune. Can't beat that view for sunsets!

There is ample room for a number of guests, though 1.5 baths mean that there may be a bit of waiting for showers for many people. Some of the furnishings are older, but this is what we expected in this type of cottage. There is a very comfortable and cozy tv room in the back of the house - great for hiding away in bad weather or for kids to hang out and play games.

Overall, a great location being right on the beach and a few short minutes' drive into town. The owners are very helpful and responsive to any questions. We'll definitely recommend it to friends and family.

A cozy cottage get-away

  • 5 of 5
This cottage has so much charm. It was clean and comfortable for our little grandchildren (all 8 of them!) and me and my husband. The little ones enjoyed having their own "private" space upstairs, with room to play and lots of beds. The den in the back of the cottage was perfect for games or a movie. I especially liked that it's close to the beach...a few stairs and you're there! The kitchen has everything needed and the provision of all linens and towels, including beach towels was convenient.
It was a wonderfully relaxing week. Thank you, Patty, for renting your special cottage to us.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
We had a WONDERFUL time at The Shannon Cottage! Our 3 year old son and black lab could not get enough of the water! The cottage was clean and had everything we needed for an enjoyable weekend. There was a very detailed "book" of information on the fridge when we got there. Patty - one of the owners was VERY easy to work with. At night you can open the windows and fall asleep to the sounds of the big water. Many times we were the only people on the beach. The water was warm and is shallow for quite a ways out and great for little people to play in. We loved eating breakfast out on the porch! We went to Mac Woods and went on a dune ride ... worth every penny,had great meals at The Brown Bear and The Antler Bar, and ate LOTS of ice cream at House of Flavors. We went in every shop in Pentwater and even made it to a civic band concert downtown. LOVED Cenzo's Market!! We were sad to leave and would go back in a HEARTBEAT!
