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!

Beautifully Appointed Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Robert is a Wonderful host, ready to assist if ever needed.

Cottage is Beautifully appointed & has just about anything you might need, from a fully appointed kitchen to extra pillows & comforters (and even enough fans for picky sleepers, lol). Be aware there is No door to the upper loft room & the ceiling is low over the end of the beds there.

The beds & furnishings are clean, cozy & comfortable. The lighting throughout the cottage is amazing. Wi-Fi & cell service is sketchy, when inquired at the cell store in GR, was informed this area of Croton is known as the 'Bermuda triangle of signal zone'. It's workable, but don't count on it all the time. Preload your MapQuest before heading out of a major town. Absolutely loved the deck with table & grill for entertaining guests. Was nice to be able to sit on the deck & listen to the band on the weekend from across the road. Bar/Grille, Gas station & Grocery store nearby for convenience. We will check for availability again the next time we visit Michigan.

Cozy summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was awesome for us! We had friends and family on Croton and Hardy ponds...location was ideal. The Driftwood bar n grill across the street was great...could sit on our deck and listen to music on the weekend or walk over and join the festivities :) The cottage itself was beautiful inside and out with all the amenities. The owners were very accomodating and even recommended a few of their favorite restaurants. We will definitely return...maybe in the fall, to see the colors.

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.
