Review 9/5/2012: Our stay at Pretty Lake cottage was fantastic. Not only was the lake and surrounding area peaceful and quiet, the cottage was clean, neat, and very inviting. It has everything necessary to enjoy some relaxing time away from home. We felt very comfortable during our stay and the hosts did a wonderful job to ensure we had a great time. We highly recommend Pretty Lake cottage. We can't wait to go back.

About the owner: My (Wayne) parents have had a cottage on Pretty Lake since I was a child. We bought our cottage in 1977 and our children have grown up here on weekends until adulthood. We have so many fond memories and are hoping others will have the same experience we have had.
Why the Owner Chose Mecosta, MI, USA:
Close to championship golf courses. This is a recent acquisition from prior neighbors and just listed 8/12. The cottage is on the sandy side of the lake and the sunsets are amazing. There are no neighbors on one side of the cottage, owners occupy cottage on the other side.
