A GREAT TIME ON PAW PAW LAKE!

  • 5 of 5
My family (wife and 2 kids ages 4 and 2) along with both sets of grandparents had an amazing time at the Sunset Cottage on Paw Paw Lake. Great Views of the Lake as the property is on the point and has lots of frontage. Kids loved hanging out on the pier and swimming. Also, they were able to fish directly of the dock. The Bonfire area was our favorite, and we enjoyed fires each night with the family. The Cottage has plenty of room and it is a great setup as it can easily sleep 8. It is well maintained and very clean. This location has everything you need for a great time at the lake. In addition, there is so much nearby, wineries, Lake Michigan, golf, etc all very close to be able to enjoy and still get back to the cottage and enjoy the lake the same day. We will definitely be back, highly recommend! The whole experience with Barbara from the beginning was very professional, organized and friendly. Not to mention responsive to every single question before and during our stay. We are grateful for the hospitality and sharing their cottage with our family!

AWESOME HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
Wow! The Sunset Cottage exceeded all of our expectations. It was imaculate, comfortable, and spacious. The kitchen was completely furnished with everything necessary to prepare meals, the bedrooms were roomy, airy and very comforable with ample closet space, and the living area was large yet cozy with very nice furnishings. The thing that I liked best was the view of the lake from just about every window in the house.
We were in Watervliet to celebrate our son's wedding. Our daughter from CA, my husband's sister from AR, and our two year old grandson all stayed with us. The cottage sure beat separate hotel rooms. We also invited our family and our son's wife's family to the cottage to watch the newlyweds open their gifts the day after the wedding. It was such an intimate setting.
We are hoping to rent the cottage next summer for a week to take full advantage of all it has to offer; sandy beach, great swimming, fishing, a fire pit on the beach, and best of all rest and relaxation.

WONDERFUL FAMILY VACATION SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week on Paw Paw Lake at the Sunset Cottage! The house was clean and open with all the amenities you would need to cook and relax. The views from the large family room were amazing. The dock and the beach made the lake so much fun for old and young. We fished and swam and just sat out on the dock and hung out. We had 3 young kids with us all who had a wonderful time exploring the property and the lake. And the bonfire was perfect for a night of s'mores! Barbara was great! We really couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our first vacation in MI! Thank you again!

CHARMING VACATION RETREAT WITH AMAZING LAKE VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
You won't be disappointed!

The moment we arrived at the Sunset Cottage we were overwhelmed with the beautiful location and outstanding panoramic views of the lake.

Barb and Mary are very gracious hosts who really have an eye for detail. The cottage was immaculately cleaned and supplied with everything you would need for a comfortable, relaxing vacation. The eat-in kitchen is very bright and homey...the pictures don't do this place justice. The master bedroom and living room are HUGE and offer plenty of space to unwind after a long day playing in the sun. Another plus for us, was having two full bathrooms :) All of the beds were very comfortable with plenty of storage space for clothes and essentials.

We spent most of our time on the private pier fishing, swimming and just enjoying the breath-taking sunsets. As promised, the location offers DELIGHTFUL breezes! We met a few people on the lake who quickly offered fishing tips and suggestions for dining in the area. We recommend Frosty Boy for a tasty ice-cream treat!

Our 4-year old enjoyed our stay so much she cried when it was time to leave. As we drove away she said "Don't worry Sunset Cottage, we'll be back soon!"

If you're looking for a clean, comfortable, relaxing place to stay...you've found it! We can't wait to come back next year :)

EXCELLENT LAKE VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was an excellent place to take the kids to spend time together on Paw Paw Lake. The home sits atop a bluff with beautiful views and features an awesome access site to the lake. The kids could fish off the pier and we even had a spot to dock our boat during our stay. It is a great location close to South Haven and St. Joe. Thanks for the wonderful accomodations!

It will help others to know that you had a positive experience ... We strive to have our cottage be clean, comfortable, and an enjoyable experience for the families that visit.
