Great vacation for the money

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 had the time of our lives this past week. We found the rental cost of this cottage to be within our budget especially when compared to others in the area. It was clean and well maintained. No knick knacks for my children to break which I was grateful for. Simple cottage living with the best location I could have asked for. A short walk to everything, the town, the water, the beach. The window air conditioning cooled the place down in a short amount of time. Nice to have the washer and dryer. Everything was as expected and more so. Recommendation to future renters, you may want to bring some bikes for the kids if you have room. A bike trail is nearby and lots of areas for biking around town and near and in the State Park. Also bring the fishing poles. I found the stores in town to have everything we needed so we did not have to drive anywhere.

We have stayed in other Pentwater cottages in prior years as we like to have a variety.

Location is the reason we booked

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cottage because of the location. We wanted something close to town where our kids could freely walk to the town, to the beach, to the lake etc. quickly and not needing their bikes. We didnt want to bring the kids bikes. We were extremely satisfied with this cottage, clean fully supplied and good beds. It was everything we expected and like I said the location is the BEST.

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

We had a bachelorette party here and had such a memorable time. We rented it for a week and each of us (6 women) had plenty of room. The house is bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside!!!.

Best part was we walked everywhere as everything is SO CLOSE: Stores, grocery store, water and beach.
