About Becki Ruh

We currently live on a horse farm just south of Kalamazoo and have two teenage boys. We love the beach, fishing and in general everything outside. This house is brand new to us and we are excited to put our stamp on it and be able to share it with others.

Becki Ruh purchased this house in 2014

Why Becki Ruh chose West Central

We have vacationed in Pentwater for over 30 years and ran across this house for sale with no plans on buying at this time. When we walked in we knew this was supposed to be our home. Plenty of room for friends and family to come and enjoy our favorite vacation spot with us. We aren't able to be there full time and want to be able to share it with other families. Pentwater is a place to slow down, recharge and reconnect with family and friends. Beautiful beach, farmers markets, fishing, etc all a bike ride away. Park the car for the whole week.

What makes this house unique

We absolutely love that the house can be full of people and there is still room for everyone to have their own space. 8 teenage boys can be upstairs watching TV, while the little kids are playing catch in the yard, couples sitting in the sunroom or on the deck relaxing after a great day at the beach. Grandpa catching the news in the sitting room and mom and grandma reading in the living room while the girls are playing a board game on the dining room table. Where did dad go? He's taking a nap after getting up early to go fishing this morning. Perfect family get away home base.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house was clean and we found everything that we needed. We had a small issue with the internet but a quick message to Becki and we had that fixed. Only 3 blocks from the ice cream shop was great.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I would HIGHLY recommend this home for anyone planning a large family vacation! There are so many different spaces to sit together/read/play, that you never get under each others feet. The outside space is even covered so that with bad weather, you can be out. We loved it and would tell anyone we knew to stay there! Becki was awesome to deal with and super accommodating!

This place is amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property!! We had 7 adults and 7 children and their was plenty of space for us all!! I have never stayed at a rental that has so much for you to use. We did 7 puzzles , played lots of games, plenty of chairs for in and out and to take to the beach. We had family at a different rental and they wished they had ours. Very comfortable and Becki was very helpful with any questions we had. Thanks Becki, for helping our family enjoy such a wonderful reunion week!! We will be back, I'm sure 😊☀️!!!

Wonderful Setting / Perfect House

  • 4 of 5

With thanks to the owners, we enjoyed a relaxing week of immersion in the easy flow of Pentwater life. The house is perfectly situated to take advantage of the amenities that downtown Pentwater offers. Shops, boutiques and restaurants, mini-golf and the town green featuring nightly concerts are a few blocks away yet the nightly sounds around the house are the quiet sounds of a Michigan summer night - cicadas, crickets and the rustling leaves in the evening breeze. Pentwater is a delightfully quiet town after dark.

The Pentwater beach is within reasonable walking or biking distance and the walkway along the pier offers easy access without having to use busy streets. Days are enchanting, sunsets are specatacular.

The owners have created a lovely refuge of indoor and outdoor spaces with ample patio, deck and seating options for outdoor family activity and dining and the spacious lawn is great for family Bocci ball tournaments. Large trees on the west side of the property shelter the house with afternoon shade and create a welcome respite. Our youngest family members really appreciated the stock of beach toys and our older members loved the outdoor shower.

Beds were comfortable and plentiful and the ample number of fans allowed us to bring in refreshing evening air. The kitchen is well stocked with ample pots, pans and cutlery and everything about the house is in fine working order.

Thank you for a great experience!

Pentwater Gem

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautifully suited for a large family. The layout is spacious and well designed for large gatherings while not feeling like you are right on top of one another. A great location for venturing into town and the beach. Property was clean and equipped with everything to meet your weekly vacation needs, kitchen, games and outdoor furniture with firepit. The only negative was no available washer and dryer. Love the outdoor shower. I would stay at the location again and feel comfortable to recommend it.

Would stay here again in a heart beat!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this rental! The home was clean and organized. I really liked the hooks throughout the rooms! Helps keeps things neat and off the floors. We had a large group, and we loved that there was plenty of beds for everyone, from adults & teens to little kids. In addition, there were board games, books, some play items in the shed. The kitchen is also very well stocked w/ everything you would need to cook meals. The location is perfect, as downtown Pentwater is just a few blocks. It was wonderful walking down to the coffee shop for a latte in the mornings. So peaceful :) The shops in town are very cute too, from upscale boutiques offering brands like Trina Turk, to more casual brands like, free people. There are also wonderful kids boutiques and stores with cute rustic wooden decor and Michigan made items. The beach is also just a few mins and there are basketball & tennis courts right down the road. Our families really enjoyed the property and felt very relaxed and comfortable settling in for our stay. Becki is also wonderful! She was very courteous and professional and a pleasure to work with. Thank you for opening up your home and sharing it with us. Truly felt like a home :)
