"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.

You have a beautiful home! It was the perfect get away for my girls' weekend. We relaxed in hot tub and it was just what we needed to rejuvenate and reconnect.
Our family had a wonderful, relaxing time at this beautiful cottage. There was plenty of room for everyone to kick back, relax, play games, etc. The cottage is only 1/2 hour from Bittersweet Ski area in Otsego. After a day on the slopes we ended the evening unwinding in the hot tub on the deck overlooking the lake. Can't wait to visit again in the summer!
Had another amazing weekend getaway at the cottage. The kids had fun in the hot tub while the women loved the local wineries nearby. We will be back!

Great property for your vacation. The home works out just fine and could sleep a lot more than we had. We were there with our grand daughter and great grand daughter for 2 weeks and had no problems at all. Enjoyed the hot tub and the nice warm Hutchins Lake. Our great grand daughter is a little scared of water so hopefully we will use the lake more on our next stay. Would not hesitate to recommend this vacation home to friends.
We stayed at The Cottage in July to celebrate my daughters 16th birthday. The place was the just the perfect size for my kids to each bring several friends with for the week. Kids took over the second floor bedroom and loft which gave them their own bathroom and space to spread out.
The view of Hutchins Lake was simply amazing and we loved morning kayaking as the lake was smooth as glass! Very clean lake and water temperature was perfect. Spent most of our days in the boat skiing, tubing, kneeboarding or simply floating together on our rafts. At night we took the boat out in the middle of the lake to star gaze and count the shooting stars. Also had great Uno card games with the kids that went well into the evening!
Jeff & Becky were great! Super responsive and very nice hosts. Thank you for letting us enjoy The Cottage! We'll be back for sure :)
