Beautiful home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying at Heron's Nest, there's a reason we keep coming back. It's a beautiful home in a great location. We love walking down to the lake and enjoying the deck, as well as hosting our local family for dinner. Our kids love the little touches like the fish tapestries, the boat figurines and the maps.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed here and it feels like a home away from home now. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving gathering at the large table and while we were there we enjoyed a beautiful sunset over Lake Michigan after a crisp but very short walk. We just love how cozy everything feels. Our son (3.5) even said "I like staying in this house. Can we come back?" Thank you so much for opening your beautiful home to us. We will be back!

Awesome Place!!

  • 5 of 5

I really cant wait to come back...was very nice!! Close to the Beach, and fishing pier, and a nice nite view of the light house and channel dock lights. We took day trips to silver lake for a bug ride, and visited the Lewis pet farm and apple orchard.... (and of course spent lots of time at the beach there)... our kids were very sad to leave! thanx so much, owners very warm and helpful and even though we had no cake and ice cream for my wife's birthday it was replaced by a sun set splash in the nice warm waters of lake michigan...would recommend to anyone travelling to the Montague/Whitehall (White Lake) area... next time we will stay longer and bring the boat!! thanx again

Peaceful, convenient location for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for a week at Heron's Nest. The house is set up so that the living space and kitchen are on the third floor which gives the best views of the boats going in and out of the channel. The kitchen had all the supplies needed and modern appliances. Newly installed air conditioning was a bonus on a few humid days but otherwise we kept the windows and french doors open for the wonderful breezes. We often ate our meals on the porches and enjoyed watching the deer pass through the yard. We rented kayaks and a paddle board in Montague which were easy to get in and out of the boat ramp nearby. Lake Michigan's beach was within walking distance for swimming or to just sit and watch the sunset. We would love to come back again!

The owners were very welcoming and gracious. Gorgeous view and ideal location! You can walk to the beach in a few minutes on the big lake as well as watch the boats coming into White Lake on the channel. Lovely decks to relax on!

A lovely home for our four member family weekend stay - close to beach and fishing. Enjoyed sitting on deck and the incredible view. Very attentive hosts - with a clean and nicely appointed home. Even fresh flowers to greet us! Many thanks....
