Montague cottage description
Our spacious summer cottage sits on a wooded dune with a grassy area in front of the cottage that leads to a beach path over two dunes-all private property. Steps lead to a footbridge that crosses a creek and connects with a sandy dune, leading you to our private, sandy Lake Michigan beach. The environment is peaceful and relaxing - you will never see crowds. We look for renters who will treat the cottage as their home. You can enjoy unobstructed views of Lake Michigan and our breathtaking sunsets from your deck or while sitting around the outdoor fire pit. Take naps in our large hammock, relax on the clean, sandy beach, or walk the shoreline for miles.
For golfers, a great public lakefront golf course is just 2 miles up the road. For bicyclists, the Hart-Montague bike trail is minutes away. Kayaking and all forms of boating available. If you prefer a greater variety of activities, you can find just about anything within a short drive!
The cottage has comfortable, inviting furnishings throughout - including a screened porch with wicker furniture and an antique harvest table which is great for family dinners or games. On cool nights, you can enjoy the good old fashioned wood-burning fireplace - plenty of wood is provided.
The beach is very sandy with very few rocks and a gentle sloping drop off into the water. Beach walks are a favorite past time as you can walk for miles. Responsible beach fires are allowed - however no overnight beach camping.
For families with young children we have a booster seat, and assorted toys (passed down from our own children) for little ones to enjoy.
We are dog lovers and therefore allow one well behaved dog and responsible owners. Pet rules must be adhered to and leash laws are in effect. Sorry - but absolutely no cats allowed. Our cleaning process is very thorough to insure all guests enjoy their stay in very clean surroundings.
We prefer email correspondence - it is much easier for us to respond quickly! Thank you!

Beautiful Vacation Cottage
Beautiful Vacation Cottage
We just returned from a wonderful vacation at the Montague cottage. The views are just as pretty as they are in the pictures. The cottage is clean, spacious, and unusually well equipped--the owners have been quite thoughtful in outfitting it for travelers. There's a huge yard for the kids to play in and plenty of toys and games. The beach is clean, gorgeous, and quiet. For those who can't make the climb down the stairs and over the dunes to get to it, there's an easier access point two minutes down the road at Medbury Park, where it's just as quiet and beautiful. Our favorite things were the incredible sunsets, fires in the fire pit, and the blanket of stars. Overall a wonderful vacation.

My wife and I traveled to the cottage in June 2012. We were immediately impressed when entering the cottage through the large screen porch at the rear. The room contains comfortable outdoor furniture, and opens up via French doors into an open concept kitchen/dining room/living room. Due to the open concept, you get a wonderful view of Lake Michigan from many rooms of the house. We enjoyed most days sitting on the deck enjoying the view. Be advised that there are quite a few stairs to get down to the bridge that takes you across the creek. From there you have to travel back up some stairs to a sand path that takes you up and over a couple of small dunes. There were plenty of good restaurants in Montague/Whitehall/Muskegon, we enjoyed a dune ride in Silver Lake (about 45 minutes north) and a dinner cruise in Muskegon. Overall, a great cottage that was very clean, spacious and had a great view. You won't be dissappointed.

Our family just enjoyed some rare time together at this cottage and loved every minute of it. The views are so beautiful, my grandson loved the toys, the booster seat & step up so he could wash hands were wonderful to have. Evenings by an outdoor fire (my first s'mores!) a lovely fire in the livingroom fireplace on a cool evening, and playing board games, Jinga, Rummy while spending time & enjoying conversations with our family who are usually 'on the go'.
