Paw Paw cottage description

Spotlessly clean cottage is located on 4 acres with 1,200 ft. of shoreline at the end of a peninsula on beautiful, quiet Ackley Lake in the town of Paw Paw. Part of a 3 cabin small resort, able to accommodate up to 13 people in 3 cabins. Cottage has two bedrooms & one bathroom. Nice mix of sun and shade. Cottage comes with complete kitchen, bed & bath linens, TV/DVD, fire ring, outdoor seating, docks, canoe & rowboat, life jackets. We are far from a busy road - with a half mile long drive through the woods to get back to our quiet location. Take a stroll around our beautiful grounds with small pond, waterfall and gardens. Take advantage of our golf package at beautiful Lake Cora Golf course. Ask about our other cottages(see our other advertised cottage on Homeaway or visit hiddenpeninsula.com on the web


Golf Package: Golf packages are available with cottage rental. Each registered guest will receive one half off their greens fees at Lake Cora Hills Golf Course for each night booked.

A Unique Location!!: Travel down a private road for one half of a mile through the woods to reach our unique location. A one mile walk to town (or a 3-mile drive). If you are looking for more of an adventure than our quiet Ackley Lake, canoe or take our rowboat through the tunnel under M-40 to boat/fish in Maple Lake, an approximately 200 acre lake. Travel down Maple Lake approximately one mile to reach the docks at the historic LaCantina Restaurant or moor at the town docks in Paw Paw and walk to the Sugar Bear for ice cream. Stop and rest half way at Maple Lake Town Park, located on an island in Maple Lake. Visit the dam on Maple Lake and fish for salmon in the fall - it's as far as the salmon can go swimming from Lake Michigan!

Fall Color Drives: Take a drive through the beautiful country, enjoying the hills, vineyards and spectacular fall colors. Drive slowly through the vineyards in the fall and smell the grapes - a sensation you'll never forget!! Make sure you allow some time for apple picking and a visit to Verhage's donut and cider mill.

                  Car: Recommended

                  Paw Paw is a quaint town, home to two wineries and several great restaurants with outdoor seating on the water. Don't miss the Wine and Harvest Festival in the fall. Things to do also include visiting the many local antique stores and flea markets, shops and museums of Kalamazoo, events and football games at Western Michigan University, shows at Miller Auditorium, fruit picking, fall color tours, visiting beaches and shops on Lake Michigan, or just hang out on quiet Ackley Lake.

                  Travel down a private road for 1/2 mile through the woods to reach our unique location. A one mile walk to town (or a 3-mile drive). If you are looking for more of an adventure than our quiet Ackley Lake, canoe or take our rowboat through the tunnel under M-40 to boat/fish in Maple Lake, an approximately 200 acre lake. Travel down Maple Lake approximately one mile to reach the docks at the historic LaCantina Restuarant or moor at the town docks in Paw Paw and walk to the Sugar Bear for ice cream.

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About: We retired about eleven years ago. We never intended to be in another business but here we are and loving it. Funny how an untended life path can change and evolve....

                  Why Paw Paw:
                  For the past 25+ years before we retired, we had owned a small cottage in Michigan. Because we were entrenched in lives in another state with jobs and children, we only were able to escape to Michigan every weekend as long as weather would allow. When we retired, we decided to sell our small cottage and look for something larger. We found a magnificent piece of property with a not-so-large house - but it had three cottages. We decided to take the leap and buy it. We gutted and remodeled one of the cottages so our children would have a place to stay when they visited. Two of our children ended up moving to Paw Paw and the other moved to Washington. We decided to try renting the cottage. It was such a success and we had so many requests to rehab another one that we did. Even more requests to redo a third prompted us to tear down one of the smaller cottages and rebuild it, larger, in another place on the property. Now, with more and more families and groups of friends coming and requesting yet another unit, we purchased one more piece of property allowing us to have a fourth unit and the entire end of the peninsula. It is a wonderful place and we just love the people we meet.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The unique characteristics of our property are the fact that we encompass the entire end of the peninsula on Ackley Lake. That means no other traffic, a safe, quiet location for your vacation. Plenty of shoreline to fish or roam around on. A small tract of woods with a little walking path. Only about a mile walk to the town of Paw Paw. After saving money for about five years after we were married, we headed up to Michigan to a cabin we had rented. When we arrived with 3 children under 5, we found our cabin to be a disaster, a place I would not take our children into. We went to a phone booth and called around and found the world's smallest cabin and had a very memorable vacation. My disastrous vacation was to YOUR benefit. When we opened our cabin business, I vowed that nobody would ever have the surprise we had on that first vacation. Our cabins are clean, comfortable and in a wonderful location. Come and see for yourself! We'll leave the light on for you.
