About the property

Lake Front Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 7-8)

Relax and enjoy the simple pleasures in our charming two bedroom cottage on Hutchins Lake on a secluded wooded lot with beautiful views of the lake and Crane Orchards.

Unwind on 120 feet of lake frontage with sunbathing, swimming, boating, fishing, and water sports. Experience the peace and tranquility of Hutchins Lake with an early morning ride on our 2 person kayak, 3 person canoe, or bring your own boat and moor it to our pier.

Brower Cottage is located in Fennville Michigan, about 10 minutes from Saugatuck, Douglas, and Lake Michigan beaches. We are about a two hour drive from the Chicago loop.

Take a short drive to Oval Beach in Saugatuck to watch the sunsets on Lake Michigan or visit the tasting rooms at Fenn Valley vineyards and wine cellar. Shop for antiques and art at the shops and galleries in the Saugatuck / Douglas area. Walking distance from Crane Orchards and Pie Pantry for delicious fresh baked pies, sweet cherry picking in the spring, peach picking in the summer, and apple picking in the fall. Minutes from the Saugatuck Dunes State Park and Allegan State Game area for hiking, hunting, and cross country skiing.

perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Brower Cottage was perfect! The cottage is comfortable and clean. We've had some experiences with listings that didn't quite live up to the pictures or the description, but Brower Cottage is everything it claims to be and more! The lake is beautiful, the cottage is pretty and comfortable, the lot is private and wooded, and the location is perfect. It's a great getaway for a couple, or a family vacation for a family with kids and pets.

Perfect for a family or romantic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This place is great! Owners thought of everything (even down to the dog bowls). Such a cute lake house, fully stocked even down to movies and games. Boat house had kayaks and a canoe and everything else you need for a great time on the water. The lake is beautiful and peaceful. Great nights by the fire also. Cannot wait for our next visit. Plus communication was great.

Private and peaceful

Our November visit to Brower cottage was private and peaceful--just what we were looking for. Also, the cottage was well stocked, well maintained, and very clean. We hope to visit again soon!

Relaxing and rejuvenating

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Cottage and enjoyed it immensely. We were able to bring our 11 yr old black lab mix with us and that was the icing on the cake. The Cottage was beautiful and the online pictures are exactly what we found when we walked into the house. Very clean and well kept up. Our week in Oct. was very peaceful and relaxing. This allowed us to rejuvenate before returning to the "real" world. We enjoyed Crane's Pie Pantry and took our dog to Warren Dunes State Park, which has a doggy beach. We ate at Red's Root Beer Stand in Paw Paw and our dog got his own doggy hot dog there. The Gilmore Car Museum is a beautiful campus with gorgeous cars. Then we would return to the Cottage, sit our on the deck and just smile and take it all in. We hope to return next year!
