Great house, great area and great communication

  • 5 of 5

Just as described. Loved the location and all the PawPaw area offered. We took advantage of everything the house had to offer, fire pit, hot tub, kayaks, paddleboat, fishing boat and floating devices. Great sunsets and very peaceful. Owners were great at communicating and had a book full of tips available to review when we arrived. Would definitely return in the future.

In a nutshell: just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely pleasant stay there! We spent 10 nights there and it was the best choice, we've ever made! It's such a beautiful place on earth - above all for stressed people, who like to relax on vacation. The cottage at Maple Lake is very clean, well partitioned and lovingly decorated. You find everything you need - coffee maker, dishwasher, washer and dryer, hot tub, paddle and row boats, grill etc. If you have questions, you can contact Shari anytime and she always answers very kind and fast.

You can do so much there: start your day with a kayak-tour on the beautiful Maple Lake for example, you'll find everything for it in the cottage. Or enjoy the sunsets there - we never saw such intensive colors and so much different varieties a sunset can have. Have a barbecue and meet neighbor Ron for small-talk or for feeding the geese and ducks together. Visit Paw Paw, Saugatuck, Holland, South Haven or any other great location there - no wish is left unfulfilled!

Not far away, we had the chance to pick fresh blueberries on a farm and enjoyed a great blueberry-pancake breakfast with the locals of Paw Paw - it was awesome!

We have abosutely nothing to criticize and can warmly recommend this property! Thank you Shari!

Perfect little cottage for our family's get away!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is cute and well maintained. Although it is small (just one bedroom off the little kitchen, a living room and sun room) it packs a lot of amenities. Dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer cover the practical needs, and the paddle boat is perfect for taking the kids across the water to the island for a picnic and to play on the swings. We never took advantage of the water trampoline or little row boat - we spent a lot of time away visiting relatives - but I was happy that appropriate sized life vests were provided for children.

Two very small notes:

A) It is very easy to accidentally drive by the place at first because it shares a driveway with a few other cottages and is not clearly marked, especially at night.

B) If you are bringing small children (my son and daughter were both under the age of 6 when we visited) I recommend an adult doing a quick walk through and tucking away all the small decorations hanging about.

Great Lake Front Property

  • 4 of 5

Awesome property for rest and relaxation. Sheri (owner) is easy to work with and neighbors welcoming -at property itself. We enjoyed a wonderful week and many options for activities. Very well maintained and clean. You will find everything you need. The only draw back is full bed only in the bedroom but it is managable for sleeping as the bottom bed can be extended. Great week and would definitely return. Beautiful updated all season room over looking the lake. Property pictures are accurate and recent.

Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week's vacation in this sweet cabin from Aug. 6-13. Shari has thought of everything for the place -- from games, puzzles, and movies, to the outdoor hot tub (a huge hit with the 4 year old), paddle and row boats, sand, and grill. We enjoyed a couple of day trips to St. Joseph and Kalamazoo and liked exploring Paw Paw. The house was very comfortable for our family of four, and we really enjoyed the four season room's views and sunshine. The deck and outdoor area is very nice and the neighbors are sweet. We'd love to stay here again! Thanks for having us!

Great Times

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with 2 other couples spent the weekend in this cottage. We had a wonderful time to say the least. There was plenty of sleeping room for the 6 of us. The decor was fabulous as well. With a fair sized lake, we rented a pontoon and enjoyed boating around the lake all day on Saturday. Very friendly neighbors as well. The 3 Seasons room was great for evening television viewing. Shari and Rob(owner) pulled out all stops to make sure that our stay went smooth. The deck is huge with very nice hot tub. Unfortunately the weather was too warm to use it.

Plenty to do in the area. Nice restaurants. Winery's to visit. Live entertainment in some of the local establishments. I would recommend this to everyone. We do plan on more vacations here.

I applaud the owners!!

Nearest Beach
30 Miles
Lake Michigan
Car: recommended

Lots of love and affection has gone into making our cottage the perfect get away! Whether you're a couple seeking a romantic rendezvous or a family looking for some precious down time together... our comfortable cottage offers a little something for everyone. Located on Maple Lake in Paw Paw; the cottage features 90' of lake frontage with spectacular views, a dock to fish from, and a large lake side deck to relax on with a fire pit close by! Paddle around the lake on paddle boats, try your luck at fishing from the jon boat, or drop in your boat and/or jet ski for some serious play time on the lake! Spend time down town at one of the local ice cream shops or restaurants, visit the vintage movie theatre, or stop in for wine tasting at the local wineries! Close to Lake Michigan, casinos, golfing, flea markets, outdoor theatres, and lots of shops.
