About the property

Visit our cottage in Stevensville, Michigan - just a short drive to Warren Dunes State Park to the south and to St. Joseph to the north.

The cottage is located on a secluded 3-acre lot with a pond, woods, campfire pit and plenty of space to roam. The cottage is well-equipped, clean, and cozy. Wifi and plenty of board games, puzzles, books and kid videos for down time together.

Take a short walk to two public Lake Michigan beaches; or a 2 mile walk or drive to Grand Mere State Park, where you will find great hiking, cross-country skiing, and huge, clean, beautiful beaches. Or enjoy the local wineries and antique shops.

Why Jenifer Cartland chose Southwest Michigan

In Kindergarten, we were asked to draw a picture of our favorite places in the world. I drew the swing set at my grandparents' cottage in northern Michigan. I still have that picture. Whenever we are at our little cottage in Stevensville, I am transported right back there to my grandparents' cottage . . . and only 90 miles from home.

What makes this cottage unique

We love hiking at Grand Mere all year round. In the winter, the sledding is fantastic. In the summer, the beaches are so clean and beautiful (and never crowded).

Perfect relaxing get-a-way property!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very charming and cozy. The TV is small, but there's so much to do in the area outside of the house. The fire pit was amazing...located right next to the pond and lots of room. There a swing set in the backyard and a wonderful detached deck with the charcoal grill. The kitchen is spacious and user friendly...we had everything we needed. I would come back again for the serene neighborhood and wonderful lot and house.

The owner was very accommodating and prompt to communicate with...thank you Jeni!

Cozy winter retreat

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here over the weekend with a group of a few girlfriends, and it was the perfect setting for us to catch up, play games, and explore the area. We even took a winter walk out to the lake. It was warm and inviting and so charming, and the pillow on the bed was the best one I've ever used. I would love to stay here again!

The property is very serene and secluded feeling. Plenty of space for dogs to run and play.

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable bed and everything you need in the kitchen, just bring your food. Plenty of room to relax, read, play games etc. We didn't use outdoor firepit but enjoyed the fireplace. Wonderful property, we hope to come back again!

Serene and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

I spent a wonderful three days at the Hidden Pond cottage and enjoyed every minute there. The home itself has everything you need and was very clean, comfortable, and the rooms are just the right size. Since I brought my two pups with me the beautiful spacious grounds were perfect for the three of us. I enjoyed visiting the nearby beaches, but spent most of my time in the quaint cottage just relaxing and reading. I look forward to a return visit, it was a very peaceful time away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Very homey and quiet

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is set in a very beautiful area and very quiet and close to Bridgeman, St Joe, and Stevensville. We found the beaches, visited 5, close and beautiful. The house is well equipped with everything you will need in the kitchen and bathroom and the yard is very nice. The mattresses and pillow need to be replaced, found the mattresses very noisy and uncomfortable and pillows flat and hard.

Great vacation!

  • 4 of 5

This was our second year at Hidden Pond! Everything was wonderful. Our only suggestion is better upkeep on the outside area so the pond can truly be enjoyed. Otherwise we highly recommend this cottage!
