sarah shulman purchased this house in 2010
Pentwater has always been the perfect place to unwind. It has served our family well. It is an amazing haven for children to roam on their own. It is a simple town that is organized on a grid and yet has all the amenities of a resort town. There is very little car traffic and there are many bikes. We bought this house to not only provide for our increasing extended family when we visit, but also to share with you.
The beauty of Pentwater is that it has not been completely discovered yet so it has amazing appeal. On the one hand it has everything a sophisticated city dweller would want including gourmet food, a great wine store, yoga classes, a number of nice women's clothing stores, a candy store, and toy store, with mini golf and ice cream parlor that stays opened late. On the other hand it also has an expansive beachfront that one can stroll for miles.
We stayed in this beautiful house when we brought our new baby back to meet the extended family. The comfort and spaciousness of the house were a perfect fit for such a special occasion. Young children loved exploring the garden and had enough room to spread out. The common areas were ideally suited for gatherings, while the bedrooms offered just the right respite. We loved being within walking distance of the quaint and relaxing downtown for those times when we wanted to stretch our legs. The property manager was a pleasure to work with and really let us focus on enjoying our vacation. Highly recommended!
My family of four was joined by my brother's family of 5. Everyone had the best vacation ever. We had to literally drag my son out of the house. The house has everything we needed: beautiful furniture; comfortable beds; and spacious areas in which we could relax and get away from it all. None of us missed our electronics. The house is an easy walk from the beach. We loved to sit on the porch, read, and enjoy the breezy night air. The owners could not have been more helpful. We cannot wait to return again next year. This is the kind of place we have dreamed of for our family reunions.
Pentwater MI is an idyllic town to visit especially for families. As a resort town on Lake Michigan, it features beautiful beaches, restaurants, shops, weekly band concerts, and a great night life, including a stroll to the famous soft serve ice cream parlor, a kids favorite.
This house is conveniently located in walking distance to the town and its beaches, which makes it a perfect town to visit with kids. It is a safe town for kids to explore on their own. You can find something for everyone including bike trails, hiking, running on the beach, mini golf, boating / marina, jet skiing, sailing, water skiing, tubing, swimming, tennis, golf courses, canoeing, climbing the famous sand dunes, and a wonderful library.
