About the property

Dreaming of summer! Book early to save the date!

The Beach House is a 5 bedroom, family friendly summer house featuring unobstructed panaoramic views (and private beach access) of Lake Michigan. Each of the 3 stories features a private outdoor deck and unigue seating arrangements including a custom built 18 seat covered picnic table (on the first floor just off the family room with a wet bar), a second story "view house" with comfy chairs for perfect afternoons and evenings, and a shaded main floor deck perfect for your morning coffee.

Walk (or run) directly from the house to your own private beach property! (no road to cross or steps to go down!) The home is in perfect condition - recently remodeled kitchen and bathrooms. Comfortable beachy furniture, luxurious bedding, and our favorite family treasures.

Our Beach House is located directly on Lake Michigan Beach and a very short walk to the Bass Lake outlet which flows into Lake Michigan. The outlet is always warm and perfect for young children who may not want to venture into the 'Big Lake.'

The house is furnished with comfortable sofas and chairs as well as antique pieces purchased by generations of my family who have vacationed here.

Each bathroom was remodeled in the fall and winter of 2013 . The layout of the house is ideal for families with a main floor master (king bed) and 4 bedrooms on the second level separated into two 2-bedroom suites each with 1 queen and 2 twins and a shared bathroom.

About Margie Ripmaster

My mother built the home in 1971 for our family reunions.

Sadly we are all so scattered we can't enjoy it as we would like but hope one day we will be able to have our dream vacations envisioned by my Mom!

Margie Ripmaster purchased this house in 1996

Why Margie Ripmaster chose Pentwater

One of the World's most beautiful BEACHES! You can't beat the fresh pristine Lake Michigan water and the softest sand.

So many possibilities for your family - sandcastles, cookouts, fishing, sunsets on the Lake, hiking, biking, boating, exploring the quaint town of Pentwater....the list goes on and on.

What makes this house unique

Our Beach House 'Maison at the Beach' is meticulously maintained and consistently updated for our guests to enjoy the best Beach Holiday!

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Wow did we relax ! The moment we walk down the walk way and saw the lake, the world melted away and the fun began. Swimming, kayaking, walks on the beach....Perfect

You won't believe the soft cool breezes from the lake, the clean perfect Lake Micihigan water and sand, bond fires, so' ores, sunsets from the deck and everything tastes so good. Try Bortles fishery for fresh caught perch and Lake trout, just minutes away, and Pentwater, So cute.

The cottage seemed to be recently remodeled and stocked with everything from great towels and linens and excellent kitchen supplies and was perfect for our family reunion and slept 10 easy and 4 bathrooms and an outside shower made it nice. Kitchen and living room allowed us to gather and play Michigan rummy for the first time in decades. Our time here was like stepping back in time to the wonders of Western Michigan in the Summer Time.

This is why Michigan is GREAT

This house is perfect for a family beach vacation. We rode bikes, fished, played in the waves of Lake Michigan. Truly amazing memories. We'll be back.
