It is a beautiful example of building of the era. The wrap around poarch is exquisite!!

  • 3 of 5

First impression: they need to hire a more thorough cleaning crew. Bugs on kitchen windowsills and cobwebs all up the stairs and porch furniture was in garage with dust, dirt and cob webs.The porch would have been a lot nicer if they had at least blown it off and set the furniture (cleaned!) on it. Also, a very dangerous situation ....the step off the porch on the driveway side is VERY slippery especially after rain but even with morning dew. I fell and luckily didn't sustain any serious injury, just swollen ankle and hand and huge bruise on my hip. After cleaning a few things and bringing the table and chairs to porch, things were very nice. The house is lovely and offers a large group ample room for people and stuff without tripping over eachother. Pentwater is always a wonderful place to get away to with great shopping, beaches and folks. We brought our bikes and loved being able to ride to the beach early morning and for the sunset each evening. Riding around town was very fun and safe for the kids too.

Owner's Response: We are delighted you were able to experience the historical grace of The Moon House Estate. Yes, with over 3000 square feet of interior space and a wide veranda on 3 sides, it is spacious and warm with its furnishings, some artisan and antique pieces. Always clean and comfortable, it is set on its own private lane with a treed front and backyard. The porch can be enjoyed for outdoor meals, happy hours, meetings, or solo relaxation. When wet, we always urge caution on outdoor steps and surfaces, which are naturally slick. The porch is furnished with a dining table and chairs, and other bench seating, in various areas. The locked garage, and its contents, are private and not available to guests. Focus on all these amenities, and relish the charm and grace which surrounds you. How generous of the owners to share The Moon House - such a special way to experience Pentwater and Lake Michigan.
