About The Owner

We grew up in the Chicago suburbs, and currently live in the city. We wanted a place that we could get away to easily on the weekends with our friends and family.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2012

Why The Owner chose Michigan

We first came up to Paw Paw lake as children, with our parents for a summer getaway. Although we have taken trips to many other places, the charm of Paw Paw has always stayed with us. Over the years, we have always recalled our memories of our time on Paw Paw lake with fondness. So when the opportunity to have our own place on Paw Paw came up, we couldn't pass it up!

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with this place the minute we walked inside. We wanted a place on the water, and this place was perfect! It had beautiful water views, was just the right size, and best of all, great location. We love the quiet peacefulness of the water. It is an ideal place to come unwind and relax.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The lakehouse was the perfect getaway from Chicago. The lakehouse was cozy, private and spacious enough for all of us. I loved being right off the water. There are many vineyards and activies to do in the area. You can do as little or as much as you want. Thanks for letting us rent the lakehouse.

Nice stay

  • 4 of 5

The house worked out perfectly for some friends who were coming into town for our wedding. Many times I do not like homes which are on the channels of a lake but the channels on PawPaw are very nice, give an intamate setting and are not shut off from the lake. The house worked well, was in good shape and was very comfortable.

Great trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this well kept, lovely home. The grounds were beautiful as well and there was plenty of room for yard games, floating, and boating. We hope to return next year!

Great stay over Memorial Day Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Three generations of our family, from as far away as St. Louis, enjoyed our stay at the lake house while attending a wedding in St Joseph. We liked sitting on the back deck watching the boats go by. The young people really liked the fire pit. Accommodations were good, everything was clean. We had a great time with lots of family bonding.

Great location and house, easy lake access

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house. The photos are accurate; there is direct access from the nice backyard to an inlet to Paw Paw Lake. It was nice to be able to hop in our canoe and go out paddling at the slightest impulse with no planning. It's a very short drive to Lake Michigan itself. The house was spacious and clean, and plenty of space in the side yard and backyard. We would definitely come back.

Family friendly house on an extra large lake lot.

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect fit for the family to enjoy our stay. Plenty of room along with a great sized yard. My family has a long history in Coloma, MI and it was very nostalgic to be back in our old home town. We even took the kids to Deer Forest, an animal sanctuary/amusement park that we visited often over 30 years ago, it was ill maintained by previous owners but is on the mend with new ones. We also got to enjoy some of our favorite pizza from DiMaggio's pizza. Great time reliving our old times. We also enjoyed boating, fishing, a cozy fire in the firepit in the evening, and general relaxing. Besides the well water being a little pungent, the house was well maintained and very comfortable. The owners are very kind and a pleasure to rent from. And I'm already trying to book another stay.
