Comfortable, relaxing spot on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Becky and Jeff,

Your cottage on the lake is delightful. It is well appointed, neat and tidy with everything a good sized family or group would need. While it was a was still a little too chilly for water sports while we were there in April, you have all the water toys available for fun on the lake. Sitting on the deck and soaking up the sun while looking out on the lake was so relaxing! We enjoyed eating at Clementines in South Haven, and had a nice lunch at The Mermaid on the riverfront in Saugutuck. Golfing at The Ravines course outside of Saugutuck was spectacular, as usual. It's a beautiful and challenging course. Thank you for sharing your cottage with us. We would recommend it to friends and family! The Mitchells

Excellent weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage on Hutchins Lake. The cottage was the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. The kitchen had all necessary equpment for cooking. We loved the hot tub that overlooked the gorgeous lake views. It was spacious, allowing us to have plenty of sleeping quarters, areas to play games, and space to hang out. The location was ideal, quiet yet with a short drive to get groceries or other basic necessities. We will definitely return!

Clean, warm & inviting

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a great place to relax and unwind. We've visited in the summer months and had a great time but the colder months are also a perfect time to visit. The hot tub & fireplace offer a chance to relax and stay warm. The lake is quiet at this time of year which gives you a sense of solitude. During our stay we visited some of the local wineries and had dinner in Saugatuck which are all very close by. I would highly recommend staying at The Cottage!

Beautiful home away from home with gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful spot! The cottage was clean with modern appliances and many comfortable beds and yet, it was still spacious enough to feel homey. The lake views were gorgeous, but my absolute favorite moment was enjoying the stars and a moonlit lake from a brand new hot tub! I would go back in a heartbeat and recommend this place to anyone I know. What a great place to catch up with my friends!
