Why Kelley & Ralph Reisinger chose Western Michigan

We love the beachfront and the easy access to Lake Michigan. This is also a rare property where you actually own the beach front, it is not access or association owned like most other properties. In addition the cottage is only 75 miles from our home which allows us to be hands on for our guests.

What makes this cottage unique

Fantastic view of the beach and lakefront from the Master Bedroom. Access the upper wrap around deck from the Master Bedroom. With a dune to the North and foliage blocking the view of nearby cottages, you will experience a peacefull vacation unlike other lake front rentals which share public access, or are part of large associations. If you want to stay in touch with the office, broadband internet and a workspace with a view allows you to work and play.

Perfect in everyway

  • 5 of 5

Actually we rented in 03, but I cannot enter the date. The cottage was seated with a gorgeou view of the Lake. The beach was our home half the day and excellent. The fire pit made great s'mores. An immaculate, super kitchen all decked out, and two living spaces (one in lower level with tv). The bedrooms are variable in size and capacity, one king room, one full size and a bunk room that holds 6. Laundry works well, and the covered back patio has a large table and views of the Lake. As three adults and two children, our stay should have been longer. The decor is charming and comfortable. Best Lake cottage around. Great value and super location. Loved it.

This cottage is such a beautiful place to spend a relaxing vacation. This was our families second year to stay here and will most definitely be back again! Our grandson is 2 years old and he loved the big sand box (beach) to play in, he could walk the easy trail from the house to the beach without being carried. There are a few beach toys at the cottage and along with his trucks, he didn't want to leave.The cottage is very well maintained and clean and we had everything we needed to spend the week. We cooked almost all of our meals there with a very well supplied kitchen and gas grill on the deck. The view of the lake from the cottage is breathtaking and the sunsets are what you see on postcards.

We went to Silver Lake one day and took a dune ride and had a blast! Another day, we went to Pentwater and checked out this most adorable little town. We saw many wild turkey and a few deer along the back roads route. Ralph and Kelly have made this vacation cottage a home away from home and I really did not want to leave, but we will be back! Thank you Ralph and Kelly!

A Piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting this cottage since 2003. We were delighted to see the new updates and amenities the new owners added. It is truly a special place our family loves. Cottage is clean and comfortable with a million dollar view. Owners are great to work with.

Top notch!

  • 5 of 5

This is an immaculate cottage! My family had a lovely stay and we could not have been happier with the accommodations! Everything in the cottage was in order! We were very pleased that there were so many touches of home! Many items we either saw and/or used were brand new! We loved the location, too! Quiet and peaceful! We would definitely recommend and would most certainly return! Kelley and Ralph are great to work with and take great care of their investment!

Perfect get-away, perfect cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had the privilege of staying at Ralph and Kelley's Lake Michigan cottage over the Independence holiday week in 2014. I was so happy to have finally found a clean, updated, convenient, and relaxing place for our annual summer vacation. It was heaven! The interior is completely updated, the walk to the beach is very easy to navigate, the owners are cooperative and hospitable ... I can't say enough good things. We had a blast and barely left the property. Thank you for doing such a great job of creating a place where people can relax, enjoy, and not have to think twice about having everything they need in order to do so.

The best vacation rental we've ever had on Lake Michigan!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several places in Michigan over the years and this was by far the cleanest.

My husband and I rented the cottage in the Spring and it was the perfect size and the perfect location for us and another couple.

The owners were very accommodating. It was very well stocked with all we needed. The views were amazing. And, I loved that the cell phone service was lacking because we needed the serenity.

We will definitely be returning.
