perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Brower Cottage was perfect! The cottage is comfortable and clean. We've had some experiences with listings that didn't quite live up to the pictures or the description, but Brower Cottage is everything it claims to be and more! The lake is beautiful, the cottage is pretty and comfortable, the lot is private and wooded, and the location is perfect. It's a great getaway for a couple, or a family vacation for a family with kids and pets.

Great R & R cottage

  • 5 of 5

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.

Another great experience at Brower

  • 5 of 5

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!
