My family stayed in this cottage (which really is so much bigger than a cottage) for 3 nights as a last minute get away. I was looking for relaxation and calm. This is exactly what you get. While the home is located about 10 miles from Pentwater and 14 from Ludington, so there really is nothing at all around it as far as a town, the drives to the larger towns were easy. There were times it would have been nice to not have to plan to go to either town, it really wasn't a big deal. The home is situated on a very quiet street, far off the beaten path. There are several other homes on the street but it seems many of the people are year-long residents. Across the dirt road from the house is a small, but very nice sandy beach area that gives direct access to the lake. My kids loved playing here and fished off the dock. There was a paddle boat, a row boat, and several kayaks to use. While it was not nice enough to use the fire pit, it would have been fun to roast marshmallows lake-side.
The home itself is very nicely decorated and comfortable. There was so much there already that we really didn't need to bring as much from home as we did. Plenty of space to spread out, but also cozy enough to actually enjoy each other. I am not sure what the comments about air conditioning were--it appeared there was air, but we didn't use it. We left windows open at night and with the ceiling fans, were more than comfortable. The owners were professional and pleasant to work with and we would highly recommend this home to anyone wanting a restful vacation away from it all!
