Pentwater vacation rentals

Take a trip to Lake Michigan

On the shores of Lake Michigan, in the lyrically-named Oceana County, this charming historic town is enough to bring out anybody's inner poet. The sandy shores and boat-filled marinas evoke the tranquil hotspots of New England, and there's so much for outdoorsy enthusiasts to get stuck into. You can rent a boat and head out onto the serene blue water to fish, sail, or simply enjoy the sunsets. Wander the pretty streets, sample the local delicacies, and browse in the quirky independent boutiques, galleries and gift shops. Or, head into the Michigan backcountry to enjoy miles of hiking in picturesque surroundings.

Lakeside fun in Pentwater

A popular summer destination, much of the activities available in Pentwater are focused on the lake and the dunes and beaches along its shoreline. One of the best ways to enjoy the scenery is to charter a boat from a marina on Pentwater Lake and sail out onto the twinkling expanse of Lake Michigan. Pentwater beach stretches along the lakeshore of Charles Mears State Park from the channel pier and lighthouse. On sunny days, it's full of families building sandcastles, flying kites, relaxing, and enjoying the water. It's a beautiful spot at dusk, when the sunset paints the lake in burnished golds and pinks

Exploring Pentwater

Pentwater is a charming, flower-filled village which you can easily explore on foot – or rent a bike or Segway to take a tour of the village. You can while away many a pleasant hour explore the quaint places to eat, browse locally-painted landscapes, and poke about in antique shops. Wine buffs can pass pleasurable hours sampling Michigan wines at a local Pentwater winery. Or, if you're staying at your Pentwater vacation rental with kids, the local farm tours and petting zoos are always a fun day out.

Summer relaxation in Pentwater

Pentwater's lakeside stretches of sugary white sand make for a perfect day out whatever the season. In summer, you can relax on the beach and soak up the rays, or enjoy a sunny excursion out on the water. The bright autumnal woodland color makes fall a particularly rewarding time to visit. And, in winter, the plummeting temperatures mean enjoying winter sports like sledding, cross-country skiing, or snowshoeing is possible. Or visit in spring, when the air freshens, trees begin to leaf, and the delicate springtime flowers start to bloom.

Get back to nature in Pentwater

From a Pentwater vacation rental, keen golfers can enjoy several courses in the local area. A number of local ranches also offer horseback riding treks through shady woodland.

This diverse habitat, sprawling almost a million acres, stretches from Lake Michigan near Pentwater across to Lake Huron. In winter, you can enjoy cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing along the forest trails just a short drive from your Pentwater vacation rental.
