Why Jeff & Becky Dryfhout chose Southwest Michigan

"The Cottage" is on the best part of the 375 acre lake. Nestled in a large cove, you get to enjoy calm waters, great fishing, and a superior view of the lake. Our home also backs up to Crane's Orchard which provides a great view of the fruit trees, giant corn maze and a short walk to sample some of their world famous fruit pies. On the other side of the lake is the Fenn Valley Vineyard and Winery which was one of the original Southwest Michigan Wineries. Great place to sample a variety of wines and take your favorite bottle home to enjoy lakeside.

What makes this cottage unique

We want your time at "The Cottage" to be a memorable one where you can relax and reconnect. Recently we've added a HOT TUB to the outdoor deck for the ultimate in relaxation. The property was remodeled in 2014 and includes granite countertops, fully renovated bathrooms, and a three season porch. We've provided all the ammenities you will need for your stay such as all kitchen item, bedding, towels, and WIFI internet access. To enjoy and explore the lake please enjoy the free 2 man kayak and four person paddleboat.

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

Hutchins Lake Cottage Rocks!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at the cottage. Excellent location, clean and wonderfully decorated cottage, and such a beautiful lake! We took our bikes to Holland to ride the Lakefront Bike Trail. So much to do in the area. Can't wait to come back next year! For a relaxing time we highly recommend!

My new favorite place on Hutchins Lake!

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage was the perfect spot to spend a relaxing weekend with some friends. Inside, we had plenty of space to spread out. Everything was clean and comfortable. Outside, we enjoyed lunch on the deck with a great view of the lake. The hot tub was fantastic. There was also a surprise sighting of a bald eagle as we sun-bathed on the dock. This is the place to stay and recharge after the busyness of life. I was also impressed with the location, which was close to an orchard and a few wineries and not very far from the shops and restaurants in Saugatuck. I would definitely recommend The Cottage as your next vacation home. I'm looking forward to coming back.

Great place for a girls weekend. Enjoyed the hot tub Friday night, wineries on Saturday, and played lots of fun games in the living room Saturday night. Jeff and Becky have a beautiful cottage on this lake, so thankful they are willing to share with others!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as described, very clean and bright. Perfect space for a large group. Very helpful and responsive owners.

We had a bachelorette weekend with 8 women and the house was perfect, plenty of room to spread out as well as gather together around the kitchen table. Loved the hot tub.
