About Lynda Chan

Being nature lovers, this cottage is a haven for anyone looking to get away from noise and bustle. The lake supports all kinds of wildlife that we love. We love going for canoe rides, walks and of course fishing. When we Some excitement ,we go to Coldwater or Angola to shop, see a movie, drink some craft beer or visit Satek winery. We really love this place and since we can't be there all the time, we like to share.

Lynda Chan purchased this house in 2003

Why Lynda Chan chose Southwest Michigan

We looked forever for a peaceful cottage on a lake which didn't support jet skis, speed boats and lots of people. After years of searching, this cottage was offered. We bought it in 30 minutes and have NEVER regretted it.

Another great stay at Dragon Lake!

If you're looking for a relaxing cottage on a quiet lake you have found it. A row boat is always available and a canoe is available most of the time. The waterfront is rustic as another review mentioned. If you prefer nature such as lilly pads, frogs, and turtles you will love the location. If you want a groomed beach you will want to look elsewhere. The cottage is clean and quiet. You get all the amenities of a house but don't expect granite countertops and flat screen TV's - this is a lake cottage. As pointed out in another review, you may need to bring charcoal and firewood. Pay it forward doesn't always work but we try by leaving some basics (ex., toilet paper, firewood, and beer of course) after our stay. There's no guarantee that's what others leave for you though. If buying a couple of these items is a problem you may want to stay elsewhere.

The reality is - if you want a great getaway that is relaxing and quiet with the basic amenities than this is the cottage for you but if you want a full blown house that is fully updated and a spotless beach than you want to keep looking. People are not renting a $400K house for about $100 a night. For the price of this cottage you are getting more than you are paying for though.

Not the charm described in the ad

  • 2 of 5

This property was more rustic than expected. We could not use the water front because it was smelly muck with many lilly pads and weeds and the yard was unkept. Inside was not that clean...a snail in the drawer with the sheets, curlers under the bed, and sticky stuff on carpet. In the add, it says they provide charcoal, but upon arrival we were left with an empty bag.

We felt there were empty promises and this ad was misleading.
