Montague house description

Vacation rentals: Swan Cottage and Swan at Stonehearth are complete with everything you will need for a relaxing getaway. Pack your suitcase and pick up some groceries and you are set for the perfect visit. Enjoy a relaxing evening with a gas fireplace. You are encouraged to put your feet up and relax with a good book and a cup of your favorite beverage. Games, puzzles, books and magazines are in abundance for quiet afternoons. Or watch a movie on cable or DVD; free wireless internet is available if you need to stay connected.

A fully-equipped kitchen with new appliances and a spacious dining area for either formal or take-out meals will set the mood for an intimate dining experience, plus outdoor dining at Swan Cottage under the pergola as well as on the three-season porch. Or, if you prefer not to cook, there are several restaurants in the area offering delicious dining options.

At Swan Cottage, two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the second with a daybed with trundle, offer sleeping accommodations for up to 4 persons. Swan at Stonehearth offers sleeping for up to 3 persons. Quality mattresses with lovely linens are guaranteed to provide a sweet dream-filled night. Plus, there is a newly-remodeled bath with a large shower and thick luxurious towels to pamper your body. Swan Cottage even includes a washer/dryer for guest use.

Swan Cottage is pet-friendly. We are happy to accommodate your pet on an 'as approved' basis.

Tree-shaded Swan Cottage includes a glassed-in seasonal front porch and a fenced rear yard with a garden pergola, gas grill and patio seating so that you can enjoy the wonderful West Michigan weather. There is even a clothes line to hang your beach towels after a sun-drenched summer day spent at Lake Michigan. Swan at Stonehearth includes central air-conditioning for summer comfort.

Conveniently located just a few blocks from downtown Montague and the bike trail, Swan Cottage and Swan at Stonehearth offer a quiet in-town setting for peaceful getaways. Did you know that there is an old-fashioned soda fountain in Montague? You can visit the World's Largest Weathervane, take in a summer concert at the band shell or enjoy a frosty root beer at a 50's drive-in all within easy walking distance. These unique locations along with a wonderful book store, a yoga studio, a yummy bakery, antique shops and an art gallery are all in downtown Montague. A seasonal farmers market and a local grocery store with a great wine and beer selection will keep the fridge stocked. Cross the bridge to Whitehall via the bike trail and you will find several delightful shops waiting to be discovered. And just a short drive gives you access to the beautiful beaches at Lake Michigan and all the other activities that abound in the area.

Reserve your favorite date for a visit in any season. Swan Cottage and Swan at Stonehearth are the perfect place to 're-charge your batteries' with a relaxing visit. Also ideal if you are working in the area and would like privacy and more space than the standard hotel room offers. Corporate/extended rates available for qualified reservations.

More info is available. Scroll down on this page for a link ('CLICK HERE - Page About Cottage') to our website, for more photos and info about delightful Swan Cottage / Swan at Stonehearth. We look forward to your visit.

          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.

           

          Owner info

          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.
