About the property

Cozy, modern, 2 bedroom Cottage directly on Little Paw Paw Lake

Duffield’s Cottages have been in the family for five generations. They are located on a peaceful, inland lake, in Coloma, Michigan, just 100 miles from Chicago. What makes this cottage a perfect family getaway is the private sandy beach and spacious yard, in a setting that welcomes evening campfires and the stories that go along with them.

The cottages are modern utilizing softened well water with two bedrooms and cozily supplied with many of the amenities of home. Extra features included are Air Conditioning, WiFi, and cable TV, along with your own Rowboat, Picnic Table, and Charcoal Grill.

Sleeping accommodations include a fold down futon couch in the living room, a full bottom, twin top bunk bed in one bedroom, and a queen size bed in the other.

The spacious yard, shared with another cottage, leaves plenty of room for various yard games while the retractable awnings provides shade if needed or the ability to remain outside and watch a passing thunder storm.

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation. Cottage was clean and very roomy. Stocked with everything we needed. Could see the sunsets on the water from the front window! Kids loved swimming in the private lake more than Lake Michigan since it was so warm.

Owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Would recommend to families looking for a relaxing getaway.

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at the cottage! It was peaceful and well maintained. There were many extras that came unexpected. Bryan was an amazing host; he checked in to make sure we had everything, but gave us space for our family to enjoy our time together. The site was quiet with low tacffic, but is close enough to excitement with a short and beautiful drive. This will go on the list of "places to stay again!"

Great family week

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at this cottage. It was neat and clean and had all the basics.The owners thoughtfully provided extras that we didn't expect-wood for the fire pit, life jackets, yard games. Loved the picture window that looked out on the beach and lake. It was quiet and peaceful and just a great place to vacation. Our kids never got tired of swimming, playing in the sand, fishing, and being outside. Such a great place for our kids. It was perfect. Just what we were looking for. We will be back again next year!

Relaxing, beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this cottage! The scenery is peaceful and beautiful and there are many things to do right there such as kayaking, fishing, grilling, having a campfire, and swimming. The cottage is cozy, well stocked and met our needs as a family with teens. We were able to also enjoy local activities such as blueberry picking, hanging out on several Lake Michigan beaches (and renting stand up paddle boards!), exploring antique shops, etc. Brian and Tara are wonderful hosts! Thanks - we'll be back!

Excellant stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented both cottages and they were very clean and in good condition. Our kids enjoyed the little beach and playing in the lake and loved the fish swimming right up to them. The owners were very friendly and the property was very well maintained and we could not have asked for a better time. We will be staying again.

very relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

We came when the first half of the vacation was summer weather and the last half was fall weather so we got the best of both worlds! The water was so warm we were still playing in it during the cooler weather. This vacation was absolutely perfect for our small children. And it is close enough to many attractions so we had many things to do! I gave this cottage 4 stars instead of 5 only because though the kitchen was set up nicely, I couldn't find a few important baking dishes like a 9x13 or 8 x 8 or pizza or cookie sheet. My guess is that since there are two cottages side by side, families probably share these for a week so dishes may get swapped around between the cottages. Other than this minor issue, we had an absolutely wonderful time and would definitely come back again!
