Property description

Please note that the maximum occupancy of this cottage is 8 people, with no more than 8 allowed on the premises at any time.

Check in is 3:00 pm and check out is 10:00 am.

This charming, Bass Lake lakefront cottage offers the best of both worlds! Enjoy 80 feet of direct frontage on beautiful, 525 acre, all-sports Bass Lake, or take a short walk to the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan and explore its endless sandy shoreline. Use one of the 5 provided kayaks and wind your way through the beautiful Bass Lake Outlet to the shallow waters for all ages to enjoy. After a day at the beach use the new outdoor shower to wash away the sand, but keep the memories of a fun-filled day. Spend your evenings gathered around the fire pit or relaxing in the screened-in gazebo. Enjoy the sunrise while you sip your morning coffee in the enclosed porch or sit on the sprawling lakeside deck and admire the natural setting.

A boat launch is just down the road so bring your boat or jet ski to enjoy on the lake. The kids will love swimming in the lake and doing cannonballs off of the 8'x8' yellow swim raft. Bring your fishing gear to fish off of the dock for Bass and pan fish.

The cottage offers a 1st floor master suite with a king size bed with a full bath. There are two additional bedrooms upstairs. One bedroom sleeps four, with a queen bed and a set of bunk beds, while the other bedroom has two twin beds. A washer, dryer and a new dishwasher are provided for your convenience as well.

A flat screen TV, wireless internet, video games, many board games and puzzles are available to entertain all ages. The garage is sure to be popular with the kids with an air hockey table, dart board, as well as an additional refrigerator. A new tetherball pole was recently installed as well.

The charming town of Pentwater is just 4 miles south of the cottage. You will love the restaurants, shops, ice cream, arts and antiques, the Thursday night concerts in the park, as well as the beautiful beaches of Mears State Park. Travel just 20 minutes south to visit the beautiful Silver Lake Sand Dunes. The Mac Wood's dune ride is a blast! For a fun-filled day for the whole family the roller coasters and water park of Michigan's Adventure amusement park are just 40 minutes south. Ludington is just 15 minutes to the north where you can explore the beautiful public beaches, trails, state parks, as well as great downtown restaurants (House of Flavors is our favorite!) and the major shopping conveniences.

Weekly rentals only over the summer with a SUNDAY checkin and checkout. Please contact us if you are interested in staying longer than 1 week. After labor day stays shorter than 1 week are available at a rate of $295/night.

Please Note: Previous guests will have first priority through October 31st to make reservations for the peak dates of the following Summer, at which time the calendar availability will open to everyone. Check in time is 3:00pm. Check out time is 10:00am.
