COTTAGE JUST UPDATED 2015!!! **We recently expanded the Master Bedrooms which now includes it's own brand new bathroom with full tub and shower. We also installed a brand new deck outside the Master with a slider....great views of the lake!***
This charming cottage sits near the shore of Lake Michigan amidst low dunes. It is shaded by large conifers and hardwoods. It has a screened porch and deck, great for vacation relaxation. In five minutes you can walk to a gorgeous, wide, clean sand beach, ideal for sunning and swimming. You can walk north for miles along the beach. If you're ready for more serious exercise, you can set off running or biking nearby shaded roads or pick up designated bike trails. It is truly a beautiful location. The owner's adjacent home is well maintained with flower and vegetable gardens. The walk to the beach takes approx 10 minutes.
This is a non-smoking cottage. We do not allow smoking inside, outside or at our beach. Thank you for your consideration.

Our cozy cottage is nestled in a stand of mixed large conifers and deciduous trees. With lake breezes, it is cool even on hot days. You can snooze on the deck, read on the porch, or watch videos. Walking down steps to a wooded path, across a bridge over the original White Lake Channel and over the final dune you will find a beautiful Lake Michigan wide sand beach. Beach chairs are provided.
The neighborhood contains a mix of cottages and year round homes (including the owner's home). Nearby is a popular 27 hole golf course, and a charming little restaurant, the Old Channel Inn. Biking is excellent along shaded streets or on designated bike trails, with interesting stops along the way. Five miles away, Montague is a quiet, pleasant town with antique shops, a yoga studio, and a soda fountain with the best malts you will find. It also has an art gallery, a mini-golf, and the Book Nook and Java Shop (with wireless!). Adjacent Whitehall also offers a number of interesting shops, including the eclectic Hokey Pokey with a wonderful array of gently used home furnishings, Posh (clothing), Harbor View Grill, The Dive Restaurant, numerous pizza places, and the Thunderbolt Gym. Several good restaurants are located in Muskegon, 15 miles south. Between Montague and Muskegon, Michigan Adventure provides a water park and roller coaster type rides for families.
You will find a boat launch (boats 16' and under) at the end of our road (Lau Road). It sits at the junction of White Lake and Lake Michigan. Bring your canoe or kayak and you can easily access either lake at this point.
Within a 30 minute drive you will find horseback riding at the Rainbow Ranch and a canoe livery, Happy Mohawk.
This is a an excellent get-away for those seeking a peaceful, beach vacation.
