Paradise in Fennville, lakes, orchards, beauty for days and a wonderful home to enjoy it in.
This was the most well equipped cottage I have ever rented in over 25 years. Everything was included, paper products, personal care, iron, hairdryer, big TV with hundreds of channels, a Klipsch audio system, a Nest heating/cooling system. No detail was overlooked. Nearly floor to ceiling windows for a full lake view. Comfortable and new furniture, appliances and most importantly - the beds. It was a little chilly in November but the deck and grounds were immaculate and highly functional. Our dog loved hunting the squirrels and walking thru the orchard behind the property. The house is light and airy, with beautiful art and carvings throughout. Nice flooring, window treatments, doors with plenty of space. It feels much bigger than 1,000 sq feet because of the open floor plan.
The location was great for restaurants, (great perch at the What Not Inn), wine tasting, and cider. You will want to spend the day at Virtue Ciders, family friendly and you can even bring your dog. It is close to Douglas, Saugatuck and Holland so you can cover a lot of ground without having to drive far. There is so much rich history in this part of the state I never knew about until reading it at the cottage.
The owners are what make this property special. Possibly the most attentive I've worked with. You will be hard pressed to find a nicer, more well equipped cottage in this part of the state. I highly recommend this property and we will definitely return for more.
We have been to Brower Cottage many times now, and it never disappoints. It is ALWAYS perfectly clean, ALWAYS great for our dogs, ALWAYS friendly/helpful owners, ALWAYS restful, peaceful....everything we need. Wish there were a Brower Cottage in every resort town I wanted to travel to! THANK YOU for this special cottage!!
Great R & R cottage
The cottage is as beautiful as the pictures on the website. It is very clean and equipped with everything that my husband and I needed for our stay. It is nice and quiet at the end of fall, not sure how it is during the summer with people out and about on the lake. The fall lets us go to relax sitting out on the dock or in the cottage with the huge glass windows allowing viewing of the lake and trees. We have been here twice and it is great if you have a furry family member to bring your dog with ok from owners. Another plus, if you like pie, is that it is down the road from Crane's Pie Pantry and Restaurant, a great place to get pies. I highly recommend this cottage.
Loved the cottage and location. Definitely will try to return!
Property is very well maintained. Neat, clean and well stocked with all that could be desired. Very relaxing atmosphere.
Another great experience at Brower
This was my third stay at the cottage. This time I brought two friends who had not been there before. A testament to how much I love this place is that we all had a great time despite the fact that it poured three of the four days we were there. The cottage is always immaculate, and the views of the lake are stunning in all kinds of weather. We were able to get in the dune buggy ride of the sand dunes during a break in the weather; it was fun and fascinating. Highly recommend. We had to cancel our cruise on the Kalamazoo River and Lake Michigan because of thunder and lightening, but stayed in and took advantage of the time to do puzzles and enjoy the drama of the storm over the lake. While I certainly enjoy the area more when the weather cooperates, Brower Cottage is a great find for a long weekend or a lengthy stay no matter what the elements. Can't wait for trip #4!
Brower Cottage is perfect!
Had a wonderful time, quiet and enjoyable! Our dogs were able to play outside and in the water, it made it for a relaxing, easy break... loved the lake and kajaking was awesome! The cottage is perfect and comfortable, we much enjoyed our 4 nights stay. Will for sure visit again.
Other Activities: Knee boarding, turtle spotting, dune rides, charter fishing on Lake Michigan, kayaking, biking, snowmobiling, horseshoes, shopping, mini golf, boating, wildlife viewing, wine tasting, art galleries, fruit picking, wake boarding.
