About the property

Over An Acre Of Beautiful Grounds, 1,000 Ft Of Shore To Fish/Swim

Spotlessly clean cottage is located on 4 acres with 1,200 ft. of shoreline at the end of a peninsula on beautiful, quiet Ackley Lake in the town of Paw Paw. Part of a small resort (see 189798, 366513). Each cottage has two bedrooms & one bathroom. Nice mix of sun and shade. Cottage comes with full size appliance kitchen, bed & bath linens, TV/DVD, fire ring, outdoor seating, docks, canoe & rowboat, life jackets. We are far from a busy road - with a half mile long drive through the woods to get back to our quiet location. Take a stroll around our beautiful grounds with large gardens. Everything you need to enjoy a week at the lake is here. Other cabin available for other friends/family (see 189798, 366513--or call for details). Take advantage of our golf package at beautiful Lake Cora Golf course.

Golf Package: Golf packages are available with cottage rental. Each registered guest will receive one half off their greens fees at Lake Cora Hills Golf Course for each night booked.

A Unique Location!!: Travel down a private road for one half of a mile through the woods to reach our unique location. A one mile walk to town (or a 3-mile drive). If you are looking for more of an adventure than our quiet Ackley Lake, canoe or take our rowboat through the tunnel under M-40 to boat/fish in Maple Lake, an approximately 200 acre lake. Travel down Maple Lake approximately one mile to reach the docks at the historic LaCantina Restaurant or moor at the town docks in Paw Paw and walk to the Sugar Bear for ice cream. Stop and rest half way at Maple Lake Town Park, located on an island in Maple Lake. Visit the dam on Maple Lake and fish for salmon in the fall - it's as far as the salmon can go swimming from Lake Michigan!

Fall Color Drives: Take a drive through the beautiful country, enjoying the hills, vineyards and spectacular fall colors. Drive slowly through the vineyards in the fall and smell the grapes - a sensation you'll never forget!! Make sure you allow some time for apple picking and a visit to Verhage's donut and cider mill.

My husband and I enjoyed a very relaxing week here. We came up for the wine fest and stayed the following week. Plenty of great places to eat. We had a most enjoyable week and will be making this an annual event! Great hosts =D

Our family of 4 (2 kids, 9 and 11) visited Hidden Peninsula for Labor Day weekend 2015. It was more than we could have expected! I told the owners that the pictures couldn't even do justice to this great property with its 360 degree views. Clean, quiet, beautiful setting, nature abundant, privacy, and room to roam. Our first day was rainy, which made for great fishing. The lake is clean and calm. You can canoe or row the whole lake, with very little boat traffic. The yard was big enough for the kids to throw a football, and the location remote enough to get in a fitness walk or run. Perfect sandy bottom for swimming in the lake. There is a Walmart and grocery store fairly close, so your family can shop when you arrive. If you like wine, make sure you stop at St Julian and Warner. The adjoining lake has a nice park and an interesting Dam. What a fantastic and hidden gem. I almost hate to share this place! Connie and Dave were most welcoming and sure made it feel like home. We will definitely be back. This is a great location for families or couples who love the lake life.

About Connie Sons, Hidden Peninsula Cottages, LLC

We retired about eleven years ago. We never intended to be in another business but here we are and loving it. Funny how an unintended life path can change and evolve....

Why Connie Sons, Hidden Peninsula Cottages, LLC chose Paw Paw

For the past 25+ years before we retired, we had owned a small cottage in Michigan. Because we were entrenched in lives in another state with jobs and children, we only were able to escape to Michigan every weekend as long as weather would allow. When we retired, we decided to sell our small cottage and look for something larger. We found a magnificent piece of property with a not-so-large house - but it had three cottages. We decided to take the leap and buy it. We gutted and remodeled one of the cottages so our children would have a place to stay when they visited. Two of our children ended up moving to Paw Paw and the other moved to Washington. We decided to try renting the cottage. It was such a success and we had so many requests to rehab another one that we did. Even more requests to redo a third prompted us to tear down one of the smaller cottages and rebuild it, larger, in another place on the property. It is a wonderful place and we just love the people we meet.

What makes this cabin unique

The unique characteristics of our property are the fact that we encompass almost the entire end of the peninsula on Ackley Lake. That means no other traffic, a safe, quiet location for your vacation. Plenty of shoreline to fish or roam around on. A small tract of woods with a little walking path. Only about a mile walk to the town of Paw Paw.

Our Story:

After saving money for about five years after we were married, we headed up to Michigan to a cabin we had rented. When we arrived with 3 children under 5, we found our cabin to be a disaster, a place I would not take our children into. We went to a phone booth and called around and found the world's smallest cabin and had a very memorable vacation. My disastrous vacation was to YOUR benefit. When we opened our cabin business, I vowed that nobody would ever have the surprise we had on that first vacation. Our cabins are clean, comfortable and in a wonderful location. Come and see for yourself! We'll leave the light on for you.
