About Jo Chaplow

I have called Muskegon home for 30 years. Born and raised in a suburb of Detroit, I came to the west side in my early twenties and loved it and never left! We own and operate four cottage homes in Muskegon and absolutely enjoy every aspect of welcoming guests and helping them experience a great vacation. From the cleanliness of the cottage to a concierge kit at arrival....we strive to exceed your expectations. This is our eleventh year meeting and greeting guests. We can't wait to help make your getaway great!

Jo Chaplow purchased this house in 2004

Why Jo Chaplow chose Western Michigan

This area is perfection. Scenic and simple! Muskegon is experiencing a renewal-formerly a lumbertown-then a manufacturing hub-now an underdiscovered destination. So unspoiled and uncommercialized- the people are genuine. Towering dunes, woods and water allow an environment suitable for every type of outdoor adventure. Just steps to Lake Michigan and across the street to miles of trails at Muskegon State Park. Swim, hike, bike, paddle in the summer....Ski, shoe, snurf and luge in the winter. 1400 sq foot cottage home has an open floor plan...super clean, so comfortable and remarkably spacious, there is plenty of room to relax.

Location is a nature lover's dream in every season. Beachside Cottage exudes fun and function.
