About Jeff & Becky Dryfhout

Our family has been vacationing on Hutchins Lake for over 30 years and it holds a special place in our hearts. It's the perfect place to relax, connect with friends and family, and make special memories. We know you will love "The Cottage" and look forward to your stay!

Jeff & Becky Dryfhout purchased this cottage in 2015

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.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect getaway place for a weekend adventure! Right on the shore of Hutchins Lake, this home had everything to relax in comfort, especially the new hot tub. Within 10 minutes of arriving we had the gas fireplace going, great views of the lake and started to unwind. If you want to cook your own meals, everything was there. If you want to get to some great local restaurants, you can find everything from fine dining to pub fare within a 15 minute drive. We loved getting around to the local antique shops, wandering Saugatuck and spending time on the deck just unwinding. This home was clean, cozy, well furnished, just right for a winter weekend getaway! You will be happy you booked this gem.

Beautiful Cottage, Great Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay! Our group of friends had a lovely weekend up at this cottage. Checking in/out and getting access to the property was easy - good communication from the owners. The place itself was immaculately clean and the beds and linens were very comfortable. The view of the lake from the back deck was terrific, especially when enjoyed from the hot tub. In addition to the cottage itself, the surrounding area has tons to do. Our favorites include visiting the local apple orchard, touring/sampling at Virtue cider and dining at the outstanding local restaurant Salt of the Earth in downtown Fennville - all activities just minutes from the cottage. A+ vacation spot.
