The Pentwater dunes along Lake Michigan boast some of the most beautiful beaches in the United States. White, silky and very clean, you will have 185 feet of private frontage with this cottage. Nightly, you will be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves gently lapping against the shore. Start each morning with a long walk along the private beach for 1.5 miles to the Pentwater Channel where you will see water craft heading out for the morning sail or first catch. If you enjoy biking, you can enjoy a quick, easy 3.5 mile bike ride into town for a good cup of coffee and a scone at the local bakery.
You can launch two kayaks in Pentwater Lake, paddle down the channel, and then head south along the Lake Michigan shore back to the cottage. Or, take the canoe to the public launch at Pentwater River for a nice, leisurely paddle.
If you like to bike, there is the Hart-Montague Biking Trail, 22 miles of paved trail through asparagus fields, fruit trees, past our local Country Dairy Farm (where you may purchase homemade ice cream and other dairy-based treats). The trailhead is a 10 minute drive from the cottage.
There is no phone, television, or internet at the cottage. This is a place where you escape from technology to enjoy nature. However, the Pentwater Libray (4 miles away) has computers for public use, as well as wireless internet that can be accessed when the library is closed.
Having enjoyed so many of our weekends at Lake Michigan, we spent 5 years trying to find the right place -- secluded, with acreage of wooded land. We wanted a place that was perched high on a dune to offer pristine views of Lake Michigan, and plenty of private frontage.
Please be aware that while there is nothing but sand dune (covered with trees) between our cottage and Lake Michigan, there are wooden steps (with a railing) that lead down from the cottage to the beach -- there are 150 steps to be exact, with small seating areas along the way.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We really enjoy being at the cottage with our children -- it's so secluded, safe, and they can run through the woods, down to the beach, play in the little tree fort. It's quiet and peaceful to sit on the deck and watch the various hawks, eagles and other birds that soar. Huge freightors, fishing boats, and sailing craft will pass by on a regular basis. The best part is that we can't see any neighbors!
Why the Owner Chose Pentwater:
We purchased in Pentwater because it is very convenient to a major airport (Grand Rapids), and it boasts the most beautiful white sand beaches in Michigan. There are also two major ferries that you can take from Muskegon and or Ludington to Wisconsin.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We start every morning with a run from our cottage, down the two track through the woods to the main road, down to the channel past the lighthouse and then back to our cottage on the beach. It's 3.4 miles. Then, while our children play in the woods, we sip our morning coffee on our deck with an almost 180 view of Lake Michigan, watching the water craft, At night, we have a beach fire on our 185 feet of private frontage. From the beach, you can't see our little crow's nest, tucked at the top of the dune in the trees.
