About the property

House, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, double lot, lake views, (sleeps 6 - 7)

This compact, modern cottage has views out to the sparkling waters of Lake Michigan. With three bedrooms and situated on a double lot, the cottage has private beach access. It also is private, located in a small neighborhood of homes and cottages that are distributed wisely across the dunes. The cottage is convenient to Silver Lake, Silver Lake State Park, and the attractive town of Pentwater. Within 20 minutes is West Michigan Adventure Park at Whitehall, the Country Dairy, a Gem Factory, horseback riding, and antique stores. The best part of the experience is sitting on the balcony and watching Lake Michigan and its constantly changing faces.

Very clean humble home

  • 5 of 5

The home was very humble, simple, and had a lot of room. The only thing is that the linens that were there were not in clean condition but it does ask you to bring your own linen so you definitely want to take it. There is also no bathroom tissue or hand soap. Overall this property was in clean condition, quiet neighborhood, and great for walk in the sand or woods. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming in the area. I would definitely stay there again.

Great value - access to Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5

Clean & comfortable with beautiful view and access to Lake Michigan. Enjoyed visiting Silver Lake, Pentwater, and the Book Nook & Java Shop in Montague. Plan to stay again next year!

Great for a weekend

  • 2 of 5

Overall the property description was accurate, but the place could use a little cleaning / TLC. I'm guessing we were the first to stay for the season, since there were dead bugs laying on the carpet near windows. Since it has been a extremely cold spring, the house was very cold too. We couldn't get the furnace to turn on, so we contacted the owner, and he provided space heaters for our use. The inside of the house was 50 degrees, which was a little cool. The Direct TV wasn't working either, and the owner was able to get that working too. The master bedroom was advertised as a King mattress, but a queen is available. We were disappointed no camp fire pit was available for bon fires. My kids love s'mores and roasting marshmallows, but we couldn't partake in that up-north family tradition this time.. We were told there would be an information packet on the table to explain information about the property and surrounding area, but nothing was found. The kitchen was pretty well stocked with pots & pans, but I couldn't find a cookie sheet or cake pan to use for making cinnamon rolls, so we improvised! Our trip to Silver Lake was to enjoy the dunes, and this location was really good! it was close to town, and the edge of the dunes state park, was just across the street. We enjoyed hiking the dunes to watch the traffic in the state park. the location was the best part of this house. We had a GREAT time for the weekend, but the noise from the dune traffic may be to much to handle if you were up for longer than a weekend. sitting outside on the deck, you can definitely hear those vehicles racing around the dunes. Overall, we had a good time. The low star rating was due to the cleanliness of the cottage.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the great review and that of the other guest there at the time: "The location was perfect for our plans for the weekend. The weather was amazing and the home met all of our needs. Thank you." Our properties are professionally cleaned to high standards, because we know that "cleanliness" is such a relative term. There were two heaters on site that the guest found and used to their satisfaction during an unusually chilly nights.
