Why Becki Ruh chose Pentwater

We have vacationed in Pentwater for over 30 years and ran across this house for sale with no plans on buying. 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.

It was so family friendly. There were several different sitting places inside and out.

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Rutledge Retreat. It was in a great location, a short walk to town and a nice walk to the beach. The house itself had so many sitting areas both in and outside that we were able to spread out. The owners took care to make sure everything we needed was supplied down to sidewalk chalk for the kids. I would recommend it to any large family who wants to spend a week together as we did. Our grand-kids will remember this as a special place.

Great Space

  • 5 of 5

Group of 9 came in for a wedding. We all fit comfortably and there were plenty of beds and bathrooms. Outside has a nice grill, patio and front yard to hang out in. There are two living rooms, one on each floor with really comfortable couches you just sink into. Only a 5 minute walk from the main road with all food and bars. Becki was very responsive to all of our questions

Extremely Cozy and Fun Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at the Pentwater Village Home for a yearly get together and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The house is exactly as described and was only a short walk into the quaint town of Pentwater. I can guarantee you won't regret staying here and everything this Vacation Rental has to offer!

Older home - has space - not worth price

  • 1 of 5

While the home does have space for the amount of people we had and a nice outdoor space - home was very outdated and unsafe in some areas. Kitchen was small and not a ton of space to prep or in fridge. House has washer and dryer but you are unable to use it. Laundromat is not always stocked with quarters or detergent and the washer/dryers do not work well. Ceiling fan broke in one room and almost hit a child sleeping on a bed. Have exposed wiring in upstairs rooms. Internet only worked here and there but very slow. Overall not worth the price they are charging.

Owner's Response: Our 1890 historical home we purchased in 2014 has had countless updates including a new electrical service in 2015 and all new plumbing including two new bathrooms in 2017. The kitchen easily accommodates three working adults with over 8' of available counter top for prepping and many empty cupboards for grocery storage. The newer refrigerator is 22.1 cubic feet with a lower freezer drawer. We have had three seasons of full bookings with wonderful reviews and many repeat guests. The washer/dryer are not listed as amenities. Any home is unsafe for unsupervised children who hang on ceiling fans. (The metal blade arm was snapped off and hit the floor leaving a gauge in the wood and light bulb pieces were found in the bedding.) We assume it was the same unsupervised children breaking several branches off ornamental trees in the yard and putting a hole in the screen door. We attempt to be as accommodating as possible and in this case have exhibited good will by making all repairs and refunding the full security deposit. The internet provider has confirmed one short interruption in service for this week. They also stated that five or more devices could cause slower service. Our goal is to provide a spacious, comfortable home for our guests and their friends/family to spend time together making lasting memories in beautiful Pentwater.

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.
