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, 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.

We had a wonderful time staying at this cottage. It has everything you need for a relaxing vacation, plus many additional and thoughtful details that made our time even more special.

Perfect for multi-generational families!

  • 5 of 5

This property was beautiful, clean and had the advantage of being on Bass Lake with Lake Michigan access a quick walk away. EVERYTHING is provided. I was impressed with two child chairs by the large dining table and there were safety plugs in the sockets. We used the kayaks in the Lake and also through the channel to Lake Michigan. Two swans gracefully floated by on their way to a wetlands area. All you need is food and beach towels! Bass Lake is shallow and great for small children. Lake Michigan held more thrills for the adults. I would highly recommend this property! Hope we can come back again!

A small slice of heaven - here on earth

  • 5 of 5

I am biased. This is my most favorite corner of the world. We have had the great opportunity to spend many years in this very corner of Bass Lake. This cottage is hands down, one of the best places to stay. The cottage is just as other people have described, and we personally were all amazed at the small touches that made it so very easy to just "move in and relax" Beds, in particular were wonderful. Kayaks were a great hit with the 4 - thirteen year olds, and we rented paddleboards at Pentwater outfitters (they deliver!) The bonfire and camp cookout was one of the most favorite activities at the cottage. If you want serene, calm, peaceful - with a great access to one of the best beaches in the world. This is a great spot!

ps...if you have a rain day when you go and need something to on the 1000 piece puzzle of cats that someone started it and we continued. DONT SHAKE IT - LOL! Simply pull it out of the game cabinet. It is a hard one. Hope the next group can continue it.

Weekend Getaway with Friends

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the cottage. We had no issues at all and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Cottage was clean and absolutely adorable. We loved all the cottage-y touches throughout. Had fun in Pentwater and Ludington. It was too windy for a bonfire, but we had plenty of other things to do! We will be back!!

Girlfriends Getaway

  • 5 of 5

7 high school girlfriends since graduating in 1962 spent 3 days in this charming cottage.

It was much better than expected. Beds enough for all. So close to Bass Lake inlet to

Lake Michigan we spent 2 after noons there. Had TV problems and owner spent tme on the phone until it was resolved. Very patient while we figured out the problem. Felt no need to go into town because we had everything we needed.
