Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third annual visit in a row and booked next year before we left. Very nice well kept home with all the amenities we need to truly make our vacation in the fantastic village of Pentwater feel like our home-away. Owner takes meticulous care of the property and we have seen regular and significant updates over the three times we've rented. The location in Pentwater is ideal, you can readily walk or bike to the multitude of activities and attractions this gem of a village has to offer. We'll be back!

Thanks to the owners of the Behr-Den...we really enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a vacation home, so really we weren't expecting much more than maybe some run down furnishings, stained carpets & bare bones amenities. We expected to feel like we were in a stranger's home that we would just use for sleeping & showering.


The home is clean, comfortable, homey and welcoming. It seemed like every little detail was thought out: everything you would need dishes, utensils, fans, playing cards, board games, books, television, full fridge & stove/oven, microwave, washer & dryer, fenced in yard, the list goes on. Newer carpet, nice hardwood floors, comfortable beds & air-conditioning.

If you appreciate crafting ( i sure do:)) there were handmade window treatments and quilts throughout the home and even a treasure chest with knitting needles yarn & patterns. From a bowl with interesting stones & geodes, to books on Michigan camping & state parks, we found ourselves spending more time enjoying the inside than we had originally thought possible.

There were also bikes, umbrellas, fire pit (saucer) and firewood, lots of different bikes (maybe 6? i lost count) including a tandem bike.

The home is located toward the end of the street in the "main" neighborhood that is around the waterfront/mainstreet shopping which is perfect because you are not bugged by a lot of foot traffic. The evenings were very quiet and peaceful.

The home is also pet friendly with a fenced in yard perfect for medium to small dogs, a bigger dog who likes to jump would probably need to be watched closer. There is a garage that contains the bikes & misc. stuff, but we still had plenty of room for all our fishing/beach/hiking equipment.

I could continue to go on & on, but in a nutshell it is a clean homey house that doesn't disappoint. We definitely want to go back next year!
