  • Beware they kept the entire security deposit for being Messy

    "Very beautiful spot, house is well stocked and comfortable. Deck is awesome. We did leave it a bit messy, as I ran out of tidy up time and let my kids do the basement! Mistake, I ran through last thing and grabbed left behind items and made sure there was no garbage, but didn't fold up bedding etc. We couldn't find large trash bags so we left out recycling in paper grocery bags all in one spot and didn't take trash out. So, not an ideal state....but $250???? They kept the whole deposit."

  • Another lovely week!

    "This was our second year at Rowden Cottage, and we are already planning to be back next year. The location is beautiful, the house well cared for and designed well for multiple generations. Many beautiful views of the lake from various rooms. Beachfront is ideal; fire pit on the dunes and the decks up above are very much appreciated."

  • Perfect, Relaxing, Fantastic for kids

    "What a fabulous little hidden gem. So quiet and peaceful, yet 15 min from city life. Don is extremely friendly and made us feel right at home. The house is super clean and had all the amenities we could ask for. Our 2 yr old son loved the beach, slide, swing, and the huge grassy property to run around. Also the pontoon is a must! This was our sons first boat ride and he absolutely loved it. Perfect spot for family's looking for a retreat away from typical tourist areas. Thanks Don, we will return! Dan and Jenny, Dick and Nancy, Jake and Cameron"

  • A wonderful place to get away from it all!

    "My husband and I had a great time in this delightful cottage! It's small, but not too small - the perfect size for just the two of us and our little dog. It's very well maintained and clean. We had lots of privacy, too. We practically had the beach to ourselves the whole time. There were a few people on the weekend, but during the week I took a very long walk on the beach all by myself and I didn't see another person the whole time. The beach is beautiful and we did go swimming on sunny days even though the water was cold! My husband enjoyed playing golf at a couple nearby courses and we had fun going to Muskegon State Park (just a few miles down the road) for hikes in the woods. In late September the sun sets by 7:30 but we managed to enjoy the evenings watching movies on the DVD player. There are plenty of restaurants within a 20 minute drive if you don't feel like cooking, but the kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal. My only issue with the cottage was the sliding screen door was a bit difficult to slide and the screen was just starting to rip along the edge - there are a lot of mosquitos so intact screens are essential! Remember to pack the bug spray if you plan to spend any amount of time in the woods - the breezes on the beach blow all the bugs away! The steps to the beach are pretty steep so they might be difficult for an elderly or really out of shape person. I will definitely consider returning to this lovely, cozy, clean, pet-friendly cottage!"
