Property description

Our cottage is located directly across the street from Big Bend Park, located on Hardy Pond; giving you access to 22 miles of water, including large, deep, all-sport Hardy Pond which is connected to the Muskegon River. Its perfectly located in the ideal northern MI setting, so you are able to enjoy the feeling of up-north and outdoor living with all the comfort of a great cozy space to call your own!

The cottage includes one small bedroom with a single twin bed, a loft space with a full sized bed and two twin beds, and a bunkhouse with two triple stacked bunks. There is also a pullout twin couch in the main space. Tons of sleeping room for everyone! Bathroom includes stand up shower. Fully stocked kitchen. Dining area has several barstools and a full sized kitchen table. It also includes a detached screened in porch with a picnic table and grill. Backyard space has a fire pit with plenty of outdoor seating. We recently purchased the neighboring corner lot which gives you plenty of space for games like horseshoes, cornhole, etc.

Rental of the cottage includes the use of our dock space directly across the street. Bring your own boat, jet-ski, etc., which can be launched for a small fee right at Big Bend Park. If you don't have your own boat, let us know and we can get you in touch with nearby marina for boat rental. Big Bend Park has a swimming area that is only a short bike ride away. We will even leave you plenty of bikes for the whole family to use!

Neighboring towns include Croton, Newaygo, and White Cloud with plenty of restaurants, local bars, and small town shopping. We can leave you a list of some of our favorite stops. Tubing the Muskegon River is a must-do activity and there are a couple of nearby companies that can rent you tubes and drop you off at your launch. Its location is also ideal for exploring other parts of west MI; all within an hour and half or less is Lake Michigan, Silver Lake and Michigan's Adventure. Rainy day, no problem...it is located within an hour of Grand Rapids and about 20 mins from Big Rapids for movies, bowling, and other family activities. You can pick up some groceries and supplies at the nearby gas station or the nearest full service grocery store, Gene's, located in Croton.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: All Michigan native; we enjoy traveling, water, outdoors, and spending quality time with each other.

Why the Owner Chose Newaygo:
Our family purchased this cottage as space for us to all gather to enjoy each other. We wanted a space that was close to home so it could be used often but in a place that allowed us all the benefits of beautiful northern Michigan in the spring, summer and fall. When we arn't able to used it, we hope to share it with others!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Be up-north, surrounded by nature and water, but no need to sleep on the cold hard ground while you have this cozy place to call yours!
