Cottage; 2 bedrooms: master w/queen, 2nd bedroom has 3 singles. Convertible queen couch on main floor. Sleeps 5-7.
The cottage is located on Wabasis lake, the largest fresh water lake in Kent county over 425 acres. The best bass and pan fishing is right off the dock. Pontoon boat included for renter. There is ample dock space for personal boat - public launch on the other side of the lake is available. The lake has very few houses because over 50% of the shoreline owned by the county with no houses allowed. The view is awsome off the deck. After dark you will feel 100 miles away from the city but Grand Rapids is only 20 miles away for shows and dining. Central air.
My wife Patti and I grew up in the Grand Rapids Mi area. I grew up on a lake 20 miles from Wabasis. We live in the Grand rapids area and love this lake.
Kevin Cross purchased this cottage in 2007
My wife's Grandfather owned a place on Wabasis lake. She grew to love the area. When a cottage finally came up for purchase after 10 years we bought this gem.
This lake is unique to Lower Michigan because so much of the shoreline has no homes. The reason for this is the county owns the land. After 7:30 the no wake zone is in effect and it is bliss. It is so quiet. If you are lucky you will see the pair of Bald Eagles who live on the lake. The lake is over a mile long.
We had a great time at the cottage. The cottage was clean and spacious with a lot of games to play. The pontoon boat was the perfect addition. We were on the lake everyday fishing and swimming. Thanks Kevin and Patti!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this adorable place on a beautiful lake! The home was immaculate and there were tons of personal touches that made our stay totally comfortable. The lake is amazing with wild areas. My sister and I had all we needed in the kitchen for preparing meals and the gas grill was a really nice bonus as well. The pontoon made lake cruising and swimming fantastic for us. The owner was accomodating and responsive to our needs. We went to Winter Inn in town for lunch one day and loved the food and service there, really great hamburgers and homemade chips! thanks for letting us bring our dog, he enjoyed swimming there and hanging out on the dock with us. thanks for the great place.
This home is in an amazing location. The lake is beautiful and having the pontoon to take out made it even greater. Everything is clean and ready to be used. I stayed with my kids and couldn't have asked for anything better.
From the initial contacts to the actual week-long stay this was a great vacation for us. The use of the
pontoon boat was an excellent amenity. Owners think of all the details so one only has to bring their own clothes and food. Stores and restaurants close by in Greenville. Highly recommended for a family or a couple. Definitely worth it!
This was our second time visiting and we were more pleased than the first time we stayed. The owners have made some improvements including newly constructed stairs, new windows and a refinished deck. The description and photos accurately reflected the rental's appearance and amenities but simply don't do justice to the cleanliness and breath taking sunset views we experienced at this location. The owners were very helpful as we had a question about the boat and more than willing to accommodate us in any way we needed. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who is loves to fish, relax and enjoy private lake access. Not having a television to watch was a beautiful thing. We did take advantage of the XM Radio and truly enjoyed the peaceful surroundings. We are already planning our return visit.
Our stay here could not have been better! The hosts were fantastic with the follow up and details on the house prior to visit, and took the time to meet us there and show us around the house, explained everything we could have asked for ahead of time. The pontoon Boat was perfect for both fishing and cruising, and the lake itself was a great mix of both relaxation and recreation, with plenty of good fishing spots to be had. Home had everything in it needed for a relaxing stay, the satellite radio was a great plus as well, as was the dart board, even though I lost..... Anything you could need for a couple with a dog was perfect, (as was our case) and would be a great spot for a family as well, with the nice sandy shallow swim area, and yard and dock all outside the back door. The town of Greenville has everything you need 15 minutes away, but you would never know there was so much built up so close to the home. Friendly people in town and on the water, where ever we went, especially at the "Meat Shack" butcher shop, and the Hilltop Sports where we got bait. We have rented from VRBO in Michigan three years in a row now, and the previous two times both said "we'll probably go back" but with this house and hosts, we will definitely be going back for a stay.
