So much to do in the area. Here are a few more reasons to visit the area: book a sunset cruise aboard our 40' motor yacht, Third Swan with special rates for cottage guests. Check out the luge run and ice skating trail in the winter at Muskegon State Park. Four different lighthouse tours are available in the summer months along Lake Michigan. Fun dune rides at Silver Lake, seasonal farmer's market in Montague, and Howmet Playhouse for theater and concerts in Whitehall as well as performances at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp.
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Having sailed along Lake Michigan for years, we told ourselves 'someday we're going to live on the west side of Michigan.' That 'someday' happened in 1995 with a job change for Ron and the subsequent move for our family to the White Lake area of West Michigan. For Cathy, the career change involved buying a Bed & Breakfast, another dream come true. Now we are just a short walk to our boat and get to enjoy the beauty of White Lake and Lake Michigan all the time! ---- Cathy and Ron
Why the Owner Chose Montague: After hosting numerous guests from all over the world, we discovered that while most guests enjoyed the B&B atmosphere, some guests wanted more space and the flexibility of a house while visiting this wonderful area. In 2007, we purchased a vintage house in Montague (just a mile from our White Swan Inn B&B) and Swan Cottage was born. We have added Swan at Stonehearth for an additional relaxing getaway.
The Unique Benefits at this House: While Swan Cottage and Swan at Stonehearth are not on the water, there are several choice locations that are just a short drive to watch the sunset, view the boats traversing the channel from Lake Michigan to White Lake, build sand castles and splash in the water. Pet-friendly Swan Cottage offers 'city dogs' a chance to lie in the sun and roll in the grass in a safe fenced-in yard. And the front porch indulges the opportunity to read, nap or do nothing at all.
