                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1997

                      About the owner: I retired from Chicago and my sister & I enjoy living in Allegan with all that SW Michigan has to offer.

                      Why the Owner Chose Allegan:
                      Pinecone Cottage was my weekend escape from Chicago for several years. I was drawn to the lake, river and forest. The area has so much to offer that when I retired I moved here full time. The Allegan State Forest offers almost everything that a nature lover could want. The Lake Michigan resort towns of Saugatuck, Douglas and South Haven are within 25 miles so there are lots of things to do besides enjoy nature. The little town of Allegan is hospitable and charming. Pinecone Cottage is in a rich recreation area that my guests have enjoyed for years.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Pinecone Cottage is very pet friendly. Pets Stay FREE. There is a 60' x 70' fenced yard and miles of forest trails you can walk undisturbed. Lake Allegan is an all watercraft lake and we provide kayaks and kayak instruction. There's lots more you'll find in the listing. Antiquing, boating, galleries, shopping, fine dining, Lake Michigan beaches, horseback riding, arts & crafts, farmers markets, concerts & theater, and the list goes on.
