We have been married for 40 years and have been on Big Star Lake for about 30 of those years. We spend our time between the lake and Florida. We grew up in the Holland/Zeeland area and raised our family there before moving to Big Star Lake.

We spent 18 years next door to this cottage and when our neighbor, now 102 years of age, decided to sell, we jumped at the chance to own this wonderful, peaceful cottage.
You have your own beach, dock, water access, parking and all the amenities of home.
We had a very enjoyable stay at this cottage. Very comfortable and clean, with all the supplies you need. Beach and deck are in a great place. Fire pit area is nice. The central AC is a big bonus on those real hot days. The lake is great for tubing, skiing, fishing, etc.
Perfect location for lake activities. View was fantastic and we spotted a Bald Eagle. Cottage was charming and had everything we needed. Fireworks show from BSL and other surrounding lakes was amazing. Shows went on for at least an hour. Good communication with owner. My only negative was the price for the week with dated furnishings and linens. Owner expects you to wash all linens and towels for next guest which became a departure challenge. Place needs some freshening up. But who spent anytime inside? All in all, a great week and would come back.
The lake is absolutely gorgeous! It's perfect for my daughter who loves playing in the sand and lake. The lake is very clean! We caught (and released) a lot of fish, right off the dock! The cottage is the perfect size for my family of three! There isn't much to do in Baldwin, but the cottage is close by a beautiful golf course. Would recommend.
Have enjoyed this cottage for the past two years, and have already signed up for next year.
Big Star Lake is a beautiful lake for many types of activities, from boating to fishing. The bottom is sandy, and the water is clear and warm.
The cottage is well maintained with many amenities. It has air conditioning for relief from those sweltering days and for getting a good night’s sleep. The washer and dryer were a huge benefit so we didn’t have to pack so many clothes or have stuff always drying on the line. It was nice to have wi-fi and cable TV just in case we needed to keep in touch. We love the large grassy area for many family activities. There is a nice sandy beach with a dock and seating area. The beach is perfect for the little ones to play in the sand and the water – it gets deep very slowly so the kids have a lot of area in which to play. We were able to keep our Sea-Doo by the dock so we could hop on at any time.
Our family had a great time here! This cottage was perfect, clean and comfortable. The neighbors were friendly and helpful. We've been to many lakes and many cottages, I think we'll be back here next year!
We spent a gloriously relaxing week at this cottage around the Fourth of July holiday. Even on a "busy" weekend, the lake was pleasantly active not crowded or noisy. The beach is pretty and private, and the sandy-bottomed lake is perfect for a swim. The cottage itself is thoughtfully appointed and within driving distance of lots of interesting destinations including the dunes and Traverse City. Wanda and Russ (owners who live next door) are a treasure.
