  • Wonderful weekend

    "My extended family spent 3 days here around a wedding and totally enjoyed it. The house we well located for the things that we like to do (beach activities, hiking, geo-caching) and extremely comfortable for our party of 7."

  • 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."

  • Charming and Secluded

    "The Sandpiper Cottage is very well appointed and cozy and the location is perfect. The beachfront is gorgeous and uncrowded and it never felt as though we were sharing the space with the owners or guests from the other cottages. We had GORGEOUS views of the sunset and lovely bonfires around the fire pit every night. The photos accurately represent the rooms, the decor and the scenery. The beds are full sized beds, not queens and they do fill up nearly all the space in the bedrooms with no additional floor space for an air mattress. I would recommend the cottage for a party of 4, rather than 6, as the third sleeping area is the roll-out sofa in the living room. The living room is the area shown in the photos and the sofa bed is also the only sofa so it's not ideal for use as a third bedroom all the time. The sofa bed is best for a one-time overnight guest or small children. We had a party of 6 adults and had no problems sharing one bathroom as it is a nice size. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils and is laid out well for several people to be working in it at once. This is really a place to spend time in the outdoor spaces and on the private beach, though, as it is very small. It rained one day during our trip and it was hard to share such intimate space with 6 adults, however 2 couples could be completely comfortable. We are a late night group and we were very lucky the neighbors in the Evergreen Cottage never complained. I would recommend larger groups (or potentially loud groups) also reserve the Evergreen Cottage for the additional space and privacy. Loading in groceries is not super easy, but if you are wearing the right shoes the walk is not that bad. There is ample firewood on site for evening camp fires and the garbage and recycling are emptied daily, which is a nice feature as I have stayed at other properties that offered no firewood or trash service. The one thing guests should prepare for is the lack of internet or cell phone service. Although not a rustic cabin, the location IS remote and we had no cell phone or internet service the entire stay. Some cell service could be acquired at the end of the driveway but for most internet usage we had to drive about a half a mile to the Red Rooster Tavern to try to get a signal. Anyone needing to work while on vacation should plan ahead for this. This is a great place to relax and unplug and enjoy the beauty of a Michigan Summer."

  • Great House!!!

    "The house is wonderful- newly updated, and you can tell the owner's took pride in the remodel. Great location- a very peaceful setting next to a tennis court, lots of tree, and Lake Macatawa. Wonderful owners- very easy to work with, and great people. If there is a drawback, it would be parking. There are 3 spots available, and no more. We had several cars staying at the house, and we had to park the other cars far away. The house is near the water, so parking spaces are a premium. I would absolutely recommend this house!"

Grand Rapids Lodging - Choosing the Best Accommodations

Keep in mind that what you consider the best accommodations might not be what someone else would consider to be the best. When it comes to West Central Michigan lake houses, you have to choose what's right for you, not what others think you should get.

Most people plan their vacations in summer, but you don't have to. If you like colder weather and the fun that it can offer to people who enjoy winter sports, you can still get West Central Michigan lake houses in the wintertime. Don't be afraid to travel when you want to and will most enjoy it. After all, it's your vacation, and Grand Rapids vacation rentals can help to make it memorable.
