2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
This was a year round home for many years but have now retired and moved out. Love the opportunity to share the cottage with others. Its an old place and needs to be used gently but its peaceful there and the lake is beautiful.
kathy purchased this Cottage in 1981
Why kathy chose White Pigeon
I grew up in the Chicago area and we always vacationed on small lakes in Michigan. It was a dream come true to have a little cottage on a lake of my own.
What makes this Cottage unique
Quiet, serene, setting. Friendly neighbors. Close to Sturgis for anything you need anytime of day but still in the country enough to feel like a private getaway.

We had such a lovely stay at the cottage. It seems as though time slowed down and we were able to enjoy every moment. The sunrise over lake is the most amazing start to the day. The hammock is my favorite spot to curl up with a book. We were inspired by the newly appointed kitchen and ended up cooking all but one meal. We loved Shipshewanna and plan to come back to do more shopping and try other restraunts in this quaint little town. Looking forward to coming back for another long weekend of relaxation. We feel so at home at this cottage we are already planning our next trip.
It does seem like time slows down there doesn't it. I guess its being surrounded by beautiful countryside, the pretty lake out your windows and kind people everywhere you go. It helps not having cable or internet or phone to intrude on the peace and quiet also I think. I'm really happy you guys appreciate the area and hope you will make time to come back during the winter to see the frozen, snow covered lake andthe spring to see everything come to life...and the summer to go swimming and boating. There's always something wonderful to enjoy at the cottage.
Perfect Get Away!!!
My wife and I loved this cute cottage!!! We were here for our first time in October 2013 and loved it so much we were back 5 weeks later!! This place is exactly what we were looking for. This cottage is clean, cozy, modern and well maintained. The sunrise over the lake is breathtaking! It's the peace and quiet that brought us back. I love that at times you can here the clip-clop sound of a horse and carriage on the road. We enjoy the town of Shipshewana with all the shops and antiquing that is available. We would recommend eating at McGonigals Restaurant in Sturgis. They have delicious burgers and beverages. I already recommended this cottage to friends and family. We will definitely be coming back. We have nothing but nice things to say about the owner!! She is very attentive and will do anything to make your stay perfect!!
A cozy little cottage indeed!
A good get-away place even in the fall, with a beautiful view of the lake. We enjoyed relaxing inside and walking in the area. It is very quiet and peaceful - exactly what we needed to get away from work and city life.
We're so glad you had the opportunity to come out to the lake and enjoy the fall foliage. Please come back any time you need a quiet little get away. We would love to have all three of you again. ;-)
This cottage is so cute and cozy.Had a wonderful time there with my family, sitting around the nice little fire pit on a cool fall day.The owners are amazing friendly people.I have stayed at several VRBO rentals and this place was by far stocked with so many items.Thanks again for a wonderful weekend.
Isn't fall in Michigan just gorgeous! The beautiful foliage, the crisp air, the fresh apples and sweet corn. Being able to enjoy it all with the people you love- you can't beat that! Thank you for coming, so glad you had a nice time. :-)
Early Fall Rental
My wife and I along with my parents really enjoyed our stay for a long weekend! The lake was beautiful. The area is quiet and private. I also enjoyed morning jogs along the country roads/farms. We had a good time visiting the charming Amish town of Shipshewana that was nearby.
We are so glad you all had a nice time. Shipshewana is a unique little town isn't it? Everyone is so cordial and welcoming. My neice loves to ride in a horse drawn carriage. Hope you guys can come back again soon, the fall leaves are giving us a spectacular show this year. :-)
Great for Short, Quiet Getaway
My wife and I needed a place to getaway from the everyday hustle and bustle and came across this place. We are going to launch a church and wanted to pray and rest before the demands we knew we had to face. Although we slept a lot of the time, the place was great for our purpose. The decor was modern and newly remodeled. The setting was picturesque and we enjoyed a great time sitting by the lake. The only thing I would say is that it would be good to know what is being provided in the kitchen and we were prepared to grill (based on the wording in the description).
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you very much for your suggestion. We have never had a grill at the cottage, but you are right-it would be a nice addition. Perfect timing too because home depot is having an end of summer sale. I'm going shopping! :-) Please come back soon so you can use the new grill, and remember you get the return renter discount.
Close to Shipshewana with all its Amish Country Charm.as well as Constantine for antique shopping. Swiss Valley ski lodge in Jones is an easy drive too...but try to plan a little time to just stock the fridge and stay at the cottage enjoying the family, no phone, no internet, no t.v. just peace and quiet. White Pigeon and Sturgis are a quick drive away for grocery shopping or anything you may need.
