Overview

Western Michigan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Three bed, one bath, full kitchen, laundry, sleeps 6

Conveniently located between Ludington and Pentwater, our cottage is sure to please all. Enjoy swimming and fishing from your private beach or take the paddle boat, row boat or kayak for cruise. Day trips are endless in our beautiful area. Spend the morning playing golf, only 5 minutes away and the afternoon shopping in lovely downtown Ludington or Pentwater only 10 minutes away. At night enjoy dinner on the deck overlooking the lake or take a 10 minute drive to one of the many fine dining establishments in our area. Michigan Adventure Amusement park is just 45 minutes south, while Little River Casino is just 45 minutes north. You'll be only 10 minutes from the beautiful sandy beaches of Lake Michigan and, for a historical perspective, spend an afternoon at White pine Village and see how our fore fathers lived.

Everything we were promised!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at this Hopkins Lake home met all of our expectations. It was very clean and was well equipped with everything we needed. For part of the week we had our two kids, their spouses, and one grandchild with us and there was plenty of room for all of us.

Our family loves to fish and we were able to catch a wide variety of fish on Hopkins Lake. We rented their pontoon boat for a day and that was a lot of fun, too. This rental is very close to Ludington, about a ten minute drive, where there are many nice restaurants, a beautiful beach, as well as many other attractions. Ludington's State Park is awesome and you'll want to visit there, too.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this rental. The owners were very diligent in answering all questions that we had before arriving and very helpful. I must add that the only drawback about this lake property is that you do have to be able to maneuver many steps to and from the lake and dock. Our family considered it a good work out each day, however, it wouldn't be suitable for anyone who has a difficult time with steps.

We loved staying here. The home was perfect for our group of 6 people. The listing was accurate with what was included in the home. It was clean and well-maintained. I would recommend this location to my friends and I hope my family can come here again! We enjoyed visiting the town, had lunch at the brewery and ice cream at House of Flavors! The home is not far from Ludington State Park. We visited Big Sable Lighthouse there!

Our family had an amazing time together here! Can't wait to come back again!

Cottage review

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed the cottage and the lake was warm and we could walk right in. My kids enjoyed the kayak and pedal boat. It was close to Lake Michigan and state parks that we visited and enjoyed also. The only down side to this cottage was that there was no air conditioning. It was 90-92 outside and very hot and humid in cottage. Brought our own fans and used one every night in each bedroom and 2 in bedroom where my grandson was sleeping(he is 9 months old) then used them in main part of cottage(dining and living room) during day.

Kitchen was well stocked with every amenity we would have needed. Outside swing overlooking the lake was great.Decks were very nice, used the gas grill almost every night. Bob even got wood for us to have a fire several nights while there. Cottage was very clean and well maintained.

Even better than I had hoped!

  • 5 of 5

What a relaxing retreat! My 3-year-old daughter and I spent a week at this fantastic destination in September, 2011. The cottage was cozy, clean, and provided all the comforts of home! The property was loaded with amenities and close to town for all our shopping/tourist needs, including the city and state parks. Our first days were spent trying out the kayak, rowboat, and pedal boat, which soon became my daughter's favorite. We went swimming, searched for clams and frogs, and built sand creations on the private beach. Our routine came to include blissful afternoon naps on the outdoor swing overlooking the lake and nightly bonfires (with s'mores, of course!) at one of the two available fire pits. As the weather turned cooler a few days into our trip we took bikerides to the nearby apple orchards, long walks, and a day trip to Manistee.

The owners were very kind, accommodating, and available. They made sure we had everything we needed at check-in, including lifevests for lake adventures and multiple contact numbers.

This was honestly the best week-long vacation I've had in YEARS. If you need to unplug and relax, this is the place for you!! I would highly recommend this property for a family getaway, romantic retreat, or girls' weekend--you won't be disappointed!
