About the property

2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage in a lovely private association

Enjoy cottage living on Lake Michigan in a beautiful, wooded lot. This smaller, one-level cottage, built in 1967, offers everything you need for a simple, fun, summer getaway.

NOTE: Fall 2016 - New windows in living room; new siding; new boardwalk to a new, private deck at the top of the dune; new stairway down to your very own 85 feet of Lake Michigan beach! Photos of the new features will be posted in Spring 2017.

The front of the cottage offers a patio with comfortable seating, a fire pit, and a gas grill. Picture windows in the living and dining rooms look out into the woods and at Lake Michigan beyond.

One large bedroom has two full-sized beds. The smaller bedroom has one full. One full bath is centrally located. A utility room houses a small washer and dryer.

Located in a private association, you have complimentary use of three well-kept tennis courts, a large children's playground, and an 18-hole crolf course (a crude but fun form of golf!).

East Grand Rapids, Michigan

Excellent cottage near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We have rented in the area for 6 years, but this was the first time we have stayed at this cottage. What a treat. We are a family of four with 2 kids, and it was perfect. The cottage was clean, organized and totally ready for guests. If we had a question, Laura answered very quickly. This cottage is a short walk to the beach and to the "crolf" course. You are also close to all of the fun at Silver Lake and an easy drive to Pentwater, Hart and Stony Lake.
