About The Owner

I have been going to this Lake Michigan beach location with my family for over 50 years. Very unique location with various activities such as fishing, hunting, canoeing, golf, horseback riding, swimming, and walking the pristine Lake Michigan beach front in Oceana County.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1960

Why The Owner chose Western Michigan

Beautiful pristine Lake Michigan shoreline not usually available to the general public. This area is all family owned and very private and secluded beachfront.

What makes this cottage unique

The adjoining natural wetlands of Big Flower Creek that is accessible from this location gives you the ability to view the natural wildlife in the area as well as the benefits of the beach. Rowboat, Canoe and Kayak are also available with this property upon request . Guided tours are available upon request on a limited basis.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

average rating of 4.9 based on 20 reviews

Hard to find, VERY easy to enjoy!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is situated on a dune that overlooks Lake Michigan with beautiful views from nearly every window. Made up of three bedrooms (with room for more than 8 heads), a small galley kitchen, large dining table (inside and outside), and a lovely sectional couch, it's perfect for a medium-sized family/group. And the kitchen is outfitted with nearly everything you will need during your stay.

While it is a bit of a long drive on one lane wooded road, the remote location means no traffic/noise/crowding.

If you are not mobile, be aware of the long stairwell to the cottage and down to the beach. And if you are tall/large, the small bathroom and shower stall could be difficult to navigate.

The owner is attentive and easy to reach, if anything comes up during your stay.

I loved our winter stay at the cottage ... so much so we are returning in August! Highly recommended!

Great place with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

I had a very positive experience during my stay here. Starting with Mike's pleasant attitude and warm hospitality from the moment we booked. He always stayed in contact with us and helped us with any concerns.

The location is beautiful. The views of Lake Michigan from the cottage are spectacular. The cottage is well kept and has cable TV and board games as well when you feel like staying in. It has the feeling of being on a private beach. Even though we ended up with cloudy days during our recent stay, we managed to get out and walk on the beach very often. I would love to rent this place again over the summer as well.

Absolutely gorgeous views of Lake Michigan. The house was warm and welcoming as we watched the huge waves and recovered from a walk on the icy beach. Perfect!

Breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here end of October for a week long break from the hustle and bustle of life. What an amazing location. The beach allows dogs & ours loved the freedom to run and smell for miles.

The cottage was the perfect place to come back to after a long walk and snuggle up on the massive couch. We cooked daily and the kitchen while small had all the tools/pots/pans that we needed.

The area has plenty to do if you choose to drive in to town. We took in several of the local restaurants, strolled the Farmers Market and found a Corn Maze close by.

We would come back to this cottage in a heartbeat. The only drawback were the stairs up to the cottage. Not a problem when you aren't lugging supplies up from the car but definitely something you should be aware of if renting. Once at the top you won't be disappointed; the views during the day are fantastic and as anyone who has been to Lake Michigan knows the sunsets are breathtaking.

Owner's Response: Beth & Husband, Thank you for coming up to visit at my cottage in October this year. This time of year is always so beautiful on Lake Michigan's Shoreline and more relaxing when it is a little more quiet and peaceful after a busy summer season. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and that would consider coming back to visit again. There are so many cool things to see and do in the area. I have been coming up to this area for a long time and I still have not been able to see everything that I would like to see. I hope you can make it back again in the future. Best Regards, Mike

Great family time on Lake Michigan shore

  • 5 of 5

Lake Michigan has the best of the states beaches and this is a perfect spot to enjoy your own private spot. This is a very comfortable place,well stocked with just about everything a family would need and more! We spent 10 days with adult kids and grandchildren coming and going. Mike even let us bring our dog- who too had a wonderful time. The view from the front porch area and an upper deck (we named it the Sky deck) was so beautiful and easily added living space. We spent very little time indoors. If you are stuck inside though- there are games/televisions/VCR players & videos. The kitchen area is tiny- but does have every size pan you could ever need and utensils. We cooked most meals outside on the 2 large grills and tried to do prep work ahead so it worked out well. You cannot go wrong with renting this property and Mike the owner is very helpful and kind.

Owner's Response: Jim and Paulette... I am so happy to hear that you and your family had a great time at my cottage. I really appreciated your enthusiasm about the area and coming to visit. I know you have been coming to the area for a number of years and had not been to this exact shoreline area before. It really was great to be able to share this area of Lake Michigan Shoreline with you. You and your family were the perfect guests and I hope that you can make it back in the future. I was not able to rate you through the site because you booked direct with me but I will certainly give you (FIVE STARS) as the perfect guests. Best Regards, Mike
