About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The beautiful view of Lake Michigan and awesome sunsets from the large deck are breathtaking. The beach is in a great desirable location with quiet grasses preceding sugar sand – described by many visitors to have the feel of Cape Cod and the east coast. The beach house has many windows and has had many updates including 2 major renovations in recent years which included the addition of a master suite, screened porch, and a new fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances. The flooring is knotty pine with carpet in the master bedroom. There is a large kitchen table, picnic tables, grill, lounge chairs, and family room sitting area. There is a balcony off the master bedroom with a wonderful lake view. The cottage includes 3 full baths and has a smoke free environment. Location is situated 10 minutes south of historic Pentwater with its many shops, excellent restaurants, putt-putt, ice cream and great public beach and 5-10 minutes north of Silver lake with its amazing sand dunes. Ludington is close by - 10 minutes north of Pentwater. Please bring your own linens and towels. Sorry no pets allowed. Limit is eight people and 1 family only. Available Saturday 4 Pm to Saturday 10 Am.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The view is perfect. The kitchen is well-equipped. There is lots to do in the area: Pentwater, Ludington, and Silver Lake. It is true there is no air-conditioning, but we would not have needed it. Also, we liked the dead tree referenced in the previous post.

Plenty of Room

  • 4 of 5

The home was well designed with enough room for all of us. The kitchen and eating area were especially good. Some of the furnishings are a bit worn and the bunk beds are a bit rickety. It was unseasonably warm and the fact that the home is not air conditioned made our stay a bit uncomfortable. Recommend window treatments for the living room sliders to keep the hot afternoon sun from turning the living room into an oven. We were instructed to rinse off before coming inside from the beach, but we couldn't figure out how to get the outside showers to work, so we used the hose in the front yard. We couldn't figure out what to do with the recyclables, so we brought them home. There are a lot of steps to the beach, but the owners positioned chairs and some beach toys/umbrellas at the base of the steps, which was very much appreciated. The owners couldn't do anything about it, but the beach is very narrow because the lake has risen to claim most of it, which was disappointing. Recommend the owners trim the dead and living trees obstructing the view of the lake from the deck. Also recommend that they update their much-appreciated driving directions to reference the proximity of their home to the Timberlake RV Resort. All-in-all, we would recommend it.

Beautiful views of Lake Michigan.

  • 4 of 5

The overall experience was very good. The house is decorated nicely and is well stocked with kitchen accessories. It is located just south of Pentwater on a small hill at the waters edge. If you plan on accessing the beautiful beach, I don't recommend this location for any person that has an issue with walking down 70 or so steps. The beach area is fantastic, with furnished chairs and a fire pit. A nice deck off the house provides excellent views of the lake. Plan on stopping prior to arrival to pick up any food stocks you may need, as the closest full service grocery is over 30 minutes away. Photos don't give this property justice.

This location is very close to Silver lake park and the impressive sand dunes.

The owners provide rapid response to questions.

We had a very nice time, and we would not hesitate in staying at this location again.
