About Jim & Amy Wooden

With busy careers and family life, one step onto the shores of Lake Michigan immediately erases the chaos of everyday life.

Jim & Amy Wooden purchased this house in 2013

Why Jim & Amy Wooden chose Pentwater

Our family (including twin 13 year old boys) seek an equal balance of activity and relaxation when we vacation. There is nothing better than following up a morning of hiking, biking, tubing, fishing, shopping or golfing with a little R&R on the deep sandy shores of beautiful Lake Michigan! While some of us prefer soaking up some rays with sand between our toes and a good book in hand, our best beach memories have been made body surfing, climbing sand dunes, walking the beach, throwing a football, flying kites and building sandcastles. Lake Michigan sunsets offer the perfect nightcap to our busy days!

To our fellow beach bums: We welcome the opportunity to share our Pentwater vacation home and can't wait for you to experience all that the Lake Michigan coast and town of Pentwater has to offer!

What makes this house unique

As a city girl, I love the beach but also want all the comforts and conveniences of home (air conditioning, wireless internet, attached garage, etc). Built in 2007, this newer home is well maintained and newly furnished. This lucky lady has a husband who loves to cook so the kitchen is well appointed with the intention to entertain! Built on a wooded lot in the rolling sand dunes of the Lake Michigan shoreline, guests enjoy the best of both worlds with both beach access as well as a wooded view and hiking trails. With multiple living spaces (main floor living room, walkout lower level family room, deck), the house very comfortably accommodates gatherings of family or friends without feeling crowded.

“Thank you so much for our wonderful week!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Amy for such a wonderful stay at your Pentwater lake house! You were very attentive and wonderful to work with -- and we so enjoyed our vacation! The lake house was a great size for our family and was well equipped with everything we needed for the beach (towels, beach toys, a beach wheeler, life vests, etc.) and for enjoying meals and family time at the house. Both the pool and beach are walking distance (or a short drive for the beach) and the community beach is beautiful and includes a small playground for the little ones as well. We enjoyed our week at the pool and beach, exploring the cute downtown area, and grilling, reading books and eating meals on the back patio. We have so many wonderful family memories from our Pentwater trip and we hope to visit again sometime. Thanks for everything, Amy!

An amazing house!!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this house and location. The house was absolutely perfect to allow for a relaxing and fun filled vacation with our family. The house is in such great condition, even the beds are super comfortable! My children thought it was like a treasure hunt, we would open different drawers and cabinets and find new things to play with. They have so many different boards games, which my kids loved. The house is stocked with anything that you could imagine; Amy and Jim have truly thought of everything that you might need. This allowed us to be able to focus on the vacation, not stress about the details.

The Duna Vista beach is so well kept and beautiful. Truly a highlight of the trip. You have to watch the sunset, it is breathtaking. It is about a 7-10 minute walk or a quick drive. If you walk, they have provided a beach cart. The kids also loved going in the pool, playing basketball, and playing tennis (which they have basketballs and tennis rackets at the house).

Fantastic Place for a Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lovely cottage, and it had everything our family needed! The house with very clean and roomy, and had everything we could ask for, including beach toys for the kids and a wagon for transport. We saw lots of wildlife, and the private beach is breathtaking. The owners were very accomodating and easy to work with. We're so happy we found this gem, and hope to be return renters! Thanks so much for letting us enjoy your beautiful cottage!

Perfect location for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded our expectations. Each room was nicely equipped with exactly what we needed. The living space was great for family movie nights and each bedroom had cozy bedding and was very welcoming. In addition, the owners of the property were open to questions we had throughout the week. The location of the house was just a few minutes from the private beach (beautiful!) and driving distance to many fun activities in Pentwater, Ludington, and Hart. Our family of 9 had a great vacation!

Wonderful vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic week renting this cottage. This well equipped, clean and comfortable home made our family get together very special. We had three children, age 3 and under, who loved swimming in the community pool and building sand castles on the beach. There was more than enough room for our group to get together or find a quiet spot. The kids loved when the deer were eating in the back yard. We would love to stay here again.
