Great place to sample a variety of wines and take your favorite bottle home to enjoy lakeside.

Beautiful Home and Great Experience!
Some friends and I rented Jeff & Becky's place hoping for a relaxing new years eve weekend. We got it! The hot tub was perfection in the freezing weather, and the house had plenty of sleeping space for all of us. We loved the open concept living room and kitchen - it let us all hang out together while cooking and relaxing. Jeff gave lots of suggestions for local places to go and was very fast to respond to any questions we had. On the last day we asked for an extra hour to hang and get on the road and Jeff gave us three :) Very nice to not be rushed out. Overall it was a great experience and the lake was BEAUTIFUL - we are thinking about coming back up in the summertime to enjoy swimming in it. Thanks for a wonderful time!
Thanks Rebecca and great having you guys at The Cottage! So glad you had a great time. Look forward having your crew back soon! Jeff & Becky :)
Great April Getaway
After a brutal winter, we needed to find a place to unwind and take in the view. This place proved to be the perfect solution - even though it wasn’t quite warm enough to swim in the lake yet, we enjoyed a cozy fire inside and a dip in the hot tub. The location was perfect - quiet yet not too far from shopping, restaurants and entertainment. To top it all off, owners were great to work with. We’ll be back!
Warm, inviting, clean, well maintained lake home
Great location for a long weekend of playing golf. The hot tub hit the spot after 36 holes at one of the many area courses.
I just booked a week to come back with the family. We can’t wait!
Peaceful and comfortable
Our stay was great - comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen and beautiful lake views. We were there off season and it was wonderfully peaceful and quiet. Proximity to wonderful pie is a great bonus, and it’s easy to get into Fennville, Saugatuck and Douglas if wanted. The owners are very responsive to questions.
So glad you enjoyed your stay Margaret! Look forward to having you and the family back again soon. Hope you were able to bring a Crane's Pie home to enjoy :)

Awesome and beautiful home away from home. Couldn’t have picked a better place to stay for such a reasonable price!!
Excellent weekend getaway!
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!
