About the Property

Classic 3 Bedroom Michigan Cottage NOT YET BOOKING FOR 2016!! PLEASE CHECK BACK

This historic, century-old cottage with a wrap-around screen porch and two level front deck boasts one of the most enchanting views of Lake Michigan on the Western Shore.

Just steps down to the boardwalk and about 15 stairs to the private beach you'll find sugar soft sand and rolling waves. Mornings and evenings on the deck are second-to-none with days spent playing, sunning or swimming on the shore or walking the private beach for miles. The channel to Pentwater lake is a short ten minute walk to the north.

This classic Michigan cottage sleeps eight (max) in three bedrooms -- two of which face the lake. The master (a queen and twin bed) has a full bathroom attached and the other two (one with two twins and the other with a twin and bunk beds) share a full bath. One more full bath is on the first level plus an outdoor shower. A cottage living room is the perfect indoor gathering spot and the dining room off the full kitchen also overlooks the lake. All towels and linens provided as well as kitchen necessities. TV, DVD, phone, Wi-Fi, games, gas grill, washer/dryer, dishwasher and much more all included.


The woods behind the cottage teem with deer, turkey and wildlife. Beyond that, the quaint town of Pentwater is filled with fun shops, tasty restaurants, ice cream parlors and a Farmer's Market twice a week on the Village Green. Boat and wave runner rentals are available in town. About 20 minutes away, Country Dairy offers super fresh milk, cheese, meat and ice cream; and, the area around Pentwater boasts some of the best golf around.

The sunsets from the deck are some of the most remarkable you can imagine and watching shooting stars in the night sky or Great Lakes tankers on the horizon complete the picture for the ideal location to get away and recharge.

This is a very special family cottage in a private association with two parking spaces in the private parking area beside it. We ask all guests to appreciate its legacy and setting. This isn't a "spring break party house" so please look elsewhere if that's what you're seeking. Thanks!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: Our family has been coming to Pentwater since the late 1800s! Our grandparents rented the original (and oldest) cottage on south beach. A photo in the cottage shows them on the beach as early as 1910. We were so fortunate to purchase this cottage 20 years ago.

Why the Owner Chose Pentwater, MI, USA:
Built around 1912, the cottage needed some care. When purchased it was truly a diamond in the ROUGH. After never-ending effort, countless upgrades and more money than we care to think about, it has become the premier destination for multiple couples and families year-after- year. All the wood and glass is original as are some of the furnishings. But, updates and modern conveniences abound. We are always updating and just installed new water heater and new fridge last year.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Precious few cottages have both a screen porch and a massive deck overlooking the beach and big lake. You have to see it to understand.
