About the property

Nice private location

Our Resort includes accommodations for large groups or family gatherings. We only allow bookings for the entire resort. There are four comfortable and cozy cottages that overlook the lake. Each cottage has 1 bedroom with a queen size bed, kids sleeping loft with 2 twin beds, a full size sleeper sofa in the living room, and 1 bath, accommodating up to 6 people each. There is also a smaller LOFT unit that sleeps an additional 4. Maximum of 28 people allowed. The vacation cottages have heat and air conditioning, decks, TV's with built in DVD, WiFi, and fully-equipped kitchens with coffee makers, microwaves, dishes, and pots and pans. Please bring linens and towels.

The lake is quiet - not a lot of fast boats. The property has a great boat launch ramp along with a floating dock and swimming float. Row boats, kayaks and a peddle boat are available to use. You may also sign up to use the Pontoon boat on site. You are welcome to bring your own watercraft.

Individual gas fired grills are on each deck. There are swings for the young at heart. The lake property also has a fire ring and laundry facilities.

Pets and smoking are not allowed. The cottages are not handicapped accessible.

About Cindy or John

John & Cindy grew up in the Midwest and have lived in the Northeast. We are pleased to be back in the Midwest and ecstatic to be on little fish lake. We look forward to sharing this wonderful property with our guests!

Cindy or John purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Cindy or John chose Cassopolis

During our search for a lake house, we immediatly fell in love with Cottages On Little Fish Lake (formerly known as Arnolds Lakeside Cottages). As the Arnold's journey into retirement begins, we are honored to carry on their tradition of great hospitality.

What makes this cottage unique

Simply beautiful lake views. Whether it's boating, fishing, swimming, swinging, or just reading a book under the shade tree, you'll find something for the entire family to do. Sit out by the fire at night, or settle in for a family game night. RELAX! UNWIND! RECHARGE!

An ideal day at Little Fish Lake might include an early morning on the lake to pull in some great bass fish; a fun filled family pontoon boat ride; lunch at the nearby Farm House bakery - with a stop at Bullseye marketplace for some old fashioned candy - an afternoon of corn hole followed by dinner (maybe that bass) - an evening of telling stories around the fire.

Incredible place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

I wish I could rate this place 10 stars! We rented all four cottages last week for my wedding party and it couldn't have worked out any better.

The cottages themselves are amazing. They are very clean, very well updated with wifi, grills and tv's in each cottage. The best part were all the extras: the private beach, pavilion, kayaks, a paddle boat, etc! We rented and took out the pontoon and it was perfect to cruise around the lake.

All of my groomsmen would say the best part was the Pickleball court! We had so much fun and even set up a tournament with everyone that was a blast.

I can't say enough great things about the Cottages on Little Fish Lake. Cindy was an outstanding host and we are already talking about getting another trip booked there.

If you have a wedding or want to get a big group together anywhere in southwest Michigan look no further!

We rented all four cabins for our wedding party for the weekend. The cabins were too cute and well kept. Even though I missed it...a fawn paid the guests a visit and even let people pet him/her! We are trying to figure out a time for us all to come back again. Needless to say it was a wonderful stay and our guests absolutely loved it! Thanks Cindy and John!!

Pure Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We rented all 4 cottages for a family vacation. It could not have been more perfect. The cabins are adorable, well stocked and very clean. There is so much for everyone to do!!! Fishing, boating, kayaking, corn hole, swings, and more. We enjoyed a campfire every single night! We have already made reservations to come back next year. I highly recommend this fantastic property. Don't miss out, stay at the Cottages on Little Fish Lake!

Owner's Response: What a terrific group! We had a great time enjoying the children and the "grown ups" of the bunch. Boating, laughing, kayaking, laughing, fishing, laughing, swimming, laughing, eating, and laughing. Can't wait until next year.........SPLASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at our Cottage on Little Fish Lake. We were looking for a romantic getaway and we found it. Dreamy days of fishing and watching the swans. Our cottage was so sweet and clean. We truly got away from the hustle and bustle and just relaxed in a quiet atmosphere of nature and beauty - a little slice of heaven. From now on, when I'm told to "go to your happy place" - this is it.

The owners were very helpful and attentive. Before we even left home, they communicated clearly what we would have to provide (linens and food) and what they provided (a fully equipped cottage with Wi-Fi). This lake has a quiet, slow paced atmosphere but we saw speed boats and people water skiing and tubing. Actually, you can get the experience you want to bring with you. I think it is perfect for romantic getaways and family reunions. We will definitely try to stay here again.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We decided to take a short weekend trip to celebrate our anniversary and found this property. It is the perfect place for a little getaway. Being from the Chicago area, we liked that it was far enough away to be relaxing and peaceful, but still only about a 2 hour drive. The cabin was very spacious, clean, and included everything that we needed for the weekend. We enjoyed taking the pontoon out for a spin, watching the sunset on the dock, and barbecuing with the provided gas grill. The owners were so nice and helpful! We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return again in the near future.
