Very quiet and private

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spot overlooking the lake surrounded by a vineyard and forest. 20 minutes to either Silver Lake dunes or Pentwater.

Excellent lake home for our multi-family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Set on a beautiful little lake, but also near to (15-20 minutes) the larger Silver Lake and Lake Michigan, this was a perfect vacation home for the week. We gathered from three different states to have a family vacation with our two daughters and sons-in-law, and two grandchildren. Each family had their own sleeping area and bathroom, including the large lower level perfect for the larger family of four (can sleep six). The upper level master bedroom had its own bathroom, and another full bathroom is on the upper level next to an additional bedroom.

The galley kitchen is well-furnished, the dining room can easily seat 10, and the living room was spacious with plenty of seating. However, the deck off the living room was where we ate most of our meals, and sat 13 comfortably for an extended family gathering. A charcoal grill was available for cooking.

There are plenty of movies, books, and video games available for rainy days, but we spent most of our time down at water's edge. We utilized the kayak, fishing boat and flotation devices, and the grandkids had a great time in the shallow, sandy water (actually better for them than Lake Michigan).

Hart is only about 5 minutes away. Hansen's Market has great homemade bratwursts and there is a farmer's market across the way. BC Pizza is good if you don't want to cook. There is a campground in Hart that our parents stayed at, joining us daily so they could have fun with their grandkids and great grandkids as well.

Theresa is a great host, very helpful (as she lives next door), but unobtrusive. We would highly recommend this home, especially for multi-family vacations and/or little children who might be intimidated by Lake Michigan.

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

Loved the lake, amenities, owners being next door and their beautiful orchard, the kayaks and small boat. It had everything you need and the owners were open and kind.

Quiet Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a tranquil and relaxing stay. The lake is clean and quiet. The home was perfect for our family with a large gathering area, plenty of outdoor space and a bunk room. The owner lives next door and was available if we needed anything (which we did not) but did not intrude on us. The home was clean and well-maintained. The house is close to Lake Michigan, so we spent a day in Pentwater and a day at Silver Lake. We would stay at Pleasant Valley Farm again and would recommend the place to our friends.

From beginning to end, this home provided a positively memorable vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation home! Of all the choices we could have made for our extended family vacation, we chose this one in little Hart, Michigan. So very glad we did! The house with multi-levels was perfect for teens all the way down to the one year old. Lots of site seeing opportunities and lazy afternoons on the lake. The homeowner, Theresa, greeted us with a big hug, was most helpful with supplies and questions and we became fast friends. Our stay was truly more than we imagined.
