North Muskegon House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

A perfect home for a family vacation! Very Kid friendly with lots of activities to keep them busy! Michigan's Adventure is only a 10 minute drive away and the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan are just down the road!! The Winter Sports Complex is only 5 miles away! Also, perfect for Ice Fishermen in the Winter!

Enjoy walking down the marina with your cup of coffee in the morning as the sun rises over the lake. Make sure to meet all the friendly folk on their boats!

The Bay Lane Cottage is located on the Point Marine Marina and the Bear Lake Channel which connects 2 popular water-sport lakes - Muskegon Lake and Bear Lake. Through Muskegon Lake, you can travel out to gorgeous Lake Michigan.

From the backyard, enjoy watching the many boats pass through the Bear Lake Channel or travel a mile down the road to the gorgeous Lake Michigan Shoreline and spend the day at the beach. Although a boat slip is not provided, transient slips are available.

For dinner, grill out while watching the fantastic sunsets over the Dunes or walk over to the Bear Lake Tavern across the street. They offer award winning perch along with delicious food and drinks in a fun indoor and outdoor setting. Enjoy live music on Saturday nights all summer long! Afterwards, roast yummy marshmallows over the campfire in your backyard!

The next morning, make sure you book a chartered fishing trip with one of the popular charter fishermen in the channel! Nothing better than hooking that 25 pound King Salmon while watching the sunset on Lake Michigan!

The next day, plan a trip to Michigan's Adventure Amusement Park - it's just a quick 10 minute drive away!

The Lake Michigan Shoreline and Muskegon State Park offer numerous hiking trails and many opportunities to see local wildlife including bald eagles and their nest, red fox, whitetail deer, swans, geese, ducks and our lovely seagulls! Make sure to enjoy a delicious ice cream cone at Ruth Anne's after your hike! We have warships, lighthouses, and submarines nearby that offer tours as well.

If you are a winter traveler- we offer special weekend rates

- So you can enjoy the ONLY LUGE track in Michigan at the Michigan Winter Sports Complex located just 5 minutes away. It also offers lit cross country trails, snow shoeing trails and numerous ice skating rinks. Make sure to stop in the Red Rooster Tavern afterwards for a warm tottie and live music!

About Heather

We love West Michigan and all it has to offer, so we have made it our home. We lived in this home for 7 years and loved every minute of it with our 3 young children. We hope you enjoy the sunny afternoons in the backyard as much as we have!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

With extended family members in the W. Mich area this was a perfect gathering place for us (the parents) from Cincinnati, a son from SE Mich, and another son from Massachusetts. We enjoyed our time together there as well as the opportunity to see other family in the area. We were three adult couples and two small children. The accommodations worked out well for us. We appreciated the fenced in yard for the children. The view from the porch was beautiful, interesting, and relaxing. The dock was a fun place to walk to view boats and also the lake areas. Bear Lake Tavern was a short walk away and had excellent burgers. Muskegon State Park was a short drive away and the beach was lovely and not near as crowded as the beach at Holland State Park can be.

The cottage was clean & nicely furnished with the exception of the kitchen. It was stocked with a hodge podge of pans and utensils that were well past their prime. There was not a decent pan to make pancakes or eggs in. A new, complete set of pots and pans is due. That said, we would definitely consider staying here again.

Owner's Response: Hi! Thank you so much for your review! We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our cottage on the beautiful Bear Lake Channel. It really is a perfect spot for everyone! Thank you for your suggestion regarding the kitchen pans. When we opened the cottage for rentals, we supplied the cottage with a set of Calaphon pans along with a few other pans of varying sizes. We will be sure to take inventory of these pans and replace as needed! Thanks again for choosing Bay Lane Cottage as your vacation destination! Cheers!

Girlfriend weekend

  • 5 of 5

Every year three girlfriends and I choose a different location for our girlfriend weekend, and this year was Muskegon. We met at Bay Lane Cottage for our 11th annual girlfriend weekend and really, really enjoyed our stay. Although we don't need separate rooms, it turned out there was a sleeping area for each of us. The cottage was spotlessly clean and cheerfully decorated. Kitchen and bathrooms were updated and modern. We spent a lot of time playing board games and gabbing. The only down side was that we'd intended to watch the Detroit Tigers slug their way to the division championship and were disappointed to find out we couldn't get the baseball game on the TV. We worked around it, listening on the radio two nights and going to Bear Lake Tavern the third. Just thought I'd mention it in case there are major sports fans who read this! Other than the disappointment of the Tigers losses (they lost the games but clinched the division) we loved Bay Lane Cottage and would recommend it to anyone.

The Perfect Find

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a family wedding. The Bay Lane Cottage worked out perfectly. It was very clean, spacious, well equipped with bedding, linens, kitchen essentials, etc. The cottage was so quiet and relaxing with the cool morning breezes and the warm afternoon sunshine. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the deck facing the canal and our afternoon barbeques using the grill that is provided. There are a few upgrades I noticed from the pictures that are shown..all a definite plus. We would recommend the Bay Lane Cottage to everyone who loves the Muskegon area. It is definitely "The Perfect Find"!!

We had a wonderful time!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was wonderful! It was very clean and well maintained and was very roomy for the seven of us (4 adults and 3 kids). The owners are great! They went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and enjoyed our stay. They were available for any questions we had and offered helpful suggestions on attractions in the area. The home has a lovely view and a great location. My husband took the kayak out and we took advantage of the fire pit for smores! We would highly recommend this home and plan on returning for a longer stay next year.
