About Pamela Nicholson

Our family lives in Park Ridge, Il and has been coming to Michigan for a long time. We love the water and hanging out with family that also has property in the area. We actually see them more here than we do at home in Illinois!!

Pamela Nicholson purchased this house in 2007

Why Pamela Nicholson chose Southwest

We bought this property because we wanted to have room to entertain and spreadout as we have a large family. We have a short walk to the beach and enjoy spending time at the beach with our neighbors and family. We are close enough to home to come for a weekend but instantly feel relaxed when we walk in the door to the cottage.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the loft bedroom over the garage and the hallway bathroom off the garage! The kids come in from the beach and hit the shower in the hallway to get the sand off! They also have a place to hang out above the garage without the adults always being there.

Great for a family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful long weekend at this lovely home in Lakeside Michigan. Nice open kitchen, dining room and living room areas. The bedrooms were lovely and spacious with plenty of room for everyone. The short walk to the beach was great too as we spent quite a bit of time enjoying the lake. Beach chairs, coolers and beach towels were also available for our use. Many extra touches have been added to this home to make it so much more comfortable. Lakeside is also a great location to visit the area wineries, breweries and restaurants. We had such a great time!

Nice updated ranch short walk to beach

  • 5 of 5

Terrific house for families with kids as it is clean, well maintained, and has lots of open toddling space with no need for gates. There's a screened porch where the adults can hang without disturbing bedtimes, and a bonus bunk room for older siblings. The walk to beach is short with only @ 45 steps to access. House instructions were clear and reasonable. Overall great rental!

Our stay was perfect! It was a beautiful house and had all of the touches to make it feel like your home away from home with its own beach just down the block and around the corner. I look forward to staying here again!!

High Praise for the House on Kruse Street

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely! It was clean and well-stocked. We appreciated the short walk to the beach and the many opportunities for beautiful bike rides. We would highly recommend it to vacationers!

Clean, spacious and in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Over the past 15 years, we've rented about a dozen different cottages in this area. This one definitely ranked up near the top of our list! We would return to this cottage if it were available again when we were traveling to the area.
