Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We came to Michigan for a wedding & fell in love with the Croton lake area & the cottage. This cottage was so homey feeling & had everything you could want in a house. The lake view across the street was so peaceful. Robert, the owner has made this experience so easy & effortless, he is a very easy person to talk to and get in touch with. Thank you so much for a great 5 days.

Beautiful and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Robert was great to work with and made sure we had everything we needed. The cottage accommodated our group very well, was beautiful, clean, and very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with things that you take for granted at home (and wouldn't necessarily think to pack -like plastic wrap and foil), which was a blessing.

I would recommend this place to others!

This cottage deserves more stars if I could add some! From the moment I booked to the moment to left, everything was truly amazing. The home is completely stocked. There is water in the fridge (nice touch). Rooms are incredibly welcoming and beds are very comfortable. In the master, there is a closet with extra pillows and blankets. When we arrived after a long day of tubing down the river, we walked directly across the street to a restaurant/ bar that is on a lake. Beautiful! Food was good. Looks like bands may play in the weekends, we were there on a holiday. The grocery store is a short walk from the cottage. After dinner we sat on the deck to relax and wind down from the long day. We are going to book again, love this place.... has everything you need.

Great Cottage in Newaygo - We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is absolutely great. It's in a perfect location in our opinion to Croton Pond, Newyago, Freemont, etc. The updated cottage has got great amenities and, fit our family of four perfectly with room to spare. We will be back here the next time we are in Michigan. Mr. Budnick was just a phone call away, when we had a question. Everything was great!

Croton is located approximately 45 miles north of Grand Rapids, MI. The cottage is rural enough to provide a peaceful getaway, yet central enough to be within easy driving distance of several major cities. The lake is surrounded by heavy woods and provides a beautiful view all year round.
