Beautiful Home and Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

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!

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!
