Overview

Western Michigan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 full baths, queen and twin sleeper sofa in living room Sleeps 10

Our Cottage is located in the very front of the Floradale Association. Literally steps away from the heated pool with slide. So convenient for all, but especially if you have kids in your party. You also have access to the Club House, Shuffleboard, Tether ball, Horse Shoes, Tennis and Basketball courts as well as 400ft of private association beachfront and our private dock without extra charge.

Our cottage has 3 bedrooms, 2 with Queen beds, and 1 with 2 sets of bunk beds. Living Room has a Queen sleeper and a Twin Sleeper. There are 2 baths, one with shower only, the other a full bath with tub. There is also a large fully equipped kitchen and large dinning room. The cottage also has a large deck and a large patio area as well with lawn furniture, a outdoor grill, and a private fire pit.

We have recently renovated the cottage and it looks amazing. All new windows, decking, railings, exterior, and 2 heat and air units! This cottage will not disappoint!

Just a few miles away is the state park dunes where you can ride through the sand or walk. Also, you can take a dune ride from Mac Woods or rent a buggy to tear up the dunes yourself. There is also a 22 mile paved bike /hiking trail along with mini-golf, bumper cars, go-carts, and many specialty shops to browse through. So book your rental today! I hope to hear from you soon!

Cute cottage close to everything!

  • 4 of 5

This cottage was a great place for our family to spend our vacation at. It was close to everything. It only to us maybe 5 minutes to drive down the road to watch the sunset over Lake Michigan every night. The weather was great! We went on 2 dune rides at Mac woods, we rented a pontoon on silver lake, and also did the zip line and go carts down the road! The kids also loved the candy store ! We were a little disappointed in the association beach as it wasn't a swimming beach, but glad that Lake Michigan wasn't too far of a drive. The cottage was great, it had everything we needed except air conditioning, but we still survived!

The only thing the kids were really disappointed in was that the pool was out of order due to a broken part. Melissa the owner was very apologetic about it even though it was out of her hands and had nothing to do with the cottage it self, she gave us a bit of a refund and we are very thankful for that! I would very much recommend Dune Daze!!

Perfect Family Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our stay at this adorable, beachy cottage, and truly can't say enough good things about it. Not only is the owner, Melissa, so helpful and easy to work with, the cottage was spotless and perfectly equipped (We also loved the new windows and new, large, sun-filled deck). We stayed in the cottage as a family of 7 with kids ranging in age from 4-10. We all had plenty of space and privacy inside, and we all also enjoyed all of the outdoor activities on the property (swing set, sand box, deck, fire pit, association basketball courts, shuffleboard, beach, and WARM pool!). While we could have stayed busy just at the cottage and within the association, we also fully enjoyed the fun of the dunes (including Mac Woods dune rides...a must!), climbing the light house, Craigs Cruisers, lots of ice cream at the Whippy Dip, and exploring the nearby beach towns of Pentwater and Ludington. For anyone looking for a fun family vacation that will create memories for a lifetime, we would highly recommend this property for your stay. Thank you, Melissa!

Boys Getaway

  • 5 of 5

THANK YOU Melissa! Dunz Days has been our cottage of choice over the last several years. We keep coming back to the overall experience of: fully equipped, cleanliness of cottage, perfect, perfect, perfect location, size (has accommodated our family of 7 with zero issues), and quick response time from Melissa.

This trip was different. My son is headed to the marines and he specifically wanted to go to back to this cottage to experience it one more time before he leaves. Melissa opened the cottage early and allowed our family (all the boys) to come get away for a long weekend. I sincerely appreciate the accommodation and again providing a clean, updated (deck and windows), and wonderful memory filled home away from home!

Wonderful family vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 just returned home from our week in this beautiful cottage. The cottage and it's furnishings were fabulous...LOVED the decor, the game closet was great especially on the few rainy days we had...furnished with fun games and drawing supplies...perfect for my kids. I brought stuff to keep them busy but didn't even need to get out! We enjoyed bonfires at the well kept fire pit and the kids enjoyed the swing set and sandbox. My only disappointment was the beachfront on Silver Lake...it has a seawall and doesn't just have sand sloping down to the water like the picture shows...not a good swimming beach for my kids especially my 2 yr old. Wished for a better beach on Silver Lake as the water there much warmer than Lake MI... Overall though a very good vacation, would recommend this property to anyone interested in a good family vacation spot with lots to do with the kids!

June Jubilee!!!

  • 5 of 5

WOW WOW WOW!!!

We are a family of 8 with children ranging from the age of 17 down to 4. It can be tricky planning a vacation that will be pleasuarble for everyone considering the vast differences of personalities and ages within our clan. Hands down this was the best vacation in our family history and we cannot wait to go back! For us, vacation is a time to create memories and an opportunity to expose our children to new experiences. We live in a world of technology and modern conveniences which can feel overwhelming much of the time. Our vacation allowed all 8 of us to reconnect with nature and one another. The cottage was comfortable and welcoming. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed swimming at all hours of the day. We explored the dunes on multiple occasions by hiking and ORV. We shopped, we fished, we explored local wildlife (watched a mama and papa swan all week prepare for the arrival of their offspring, witnessed two black squirrels building their nest in the tree out front of the cottage and admired the spots on the fawns that were born this past spring). We visited a local vinyard, had dinner in Pentwater and climbed the lighthouse (which our 4 year old kept referring to as the "whitehouse"). We cooked and shared family meals together and every evening would gather by the fire and share stories of our days adventures. It was a perfect combination of wildlife and beach/water and we are eager to do it again!!!!
