Cottage On Lake Michigan (50 Feet From The Beach!)

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2 adults + 2-4 children

This cottage is truly a Lake Michigan Hideaway, tucked away from other homes for a very private feel, yet offering a central location between big tourist areas such as Silver Lake Sand Dunes and Pentwater. This rustic and homey hideaway is just a few steps from beautiful Lake Michigan. This is a unique find and the closest cottage to the shoreline!

The lower level of this two-story cottage is available for renting, and is separate from the upper level. The upper level is the owner's private area and not used when renters are below. The cottage includes a full bathroom with a tub/shower, one master bedroom, and a bunk room. The master bedroom contains a full bed, a dresser, and a closet. The bunk room contains 1 bunk (2 twin beds total), a dresser, and a closet.


The main area of the cottage is open concept with a fully functioning kitchen, living room, and dining area. We can also provide a double air mattress upon request for no additional fee.

This cozy cottage is filled with many memories and great for families! Wi-Fi is provided.

There are two picnic tables throughout the property with an amazing view of the lake. Renters can also enjoy 210 feet of beachfront for relaxing, games, and fun!

A cleaning fee is not included in this rental fee. If you leave the cottage and surrounding area as clean as you found it, a cleaning charge will not be deducted from your deposit.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has the most beautiful property. Literally steps away from your own private beach. Lovely outdoor sitting area and firepit. Canoe, cornhole and other activities to keep you busy. Living area very clean. Owners were very nice and accessable. Would have liked a TV or DVD to pass the time when it is too windy for a campfire, but definitely not a deal breaker. Located close to dunes. Would definitely stay here again. Affordable too, we saved a lot of money being able to cook our meals and bbq at the cottage.

As advertised!

My family and I had a most wonderful, relaxing week at this cottage. The beach was amazing with clear, fresh water. We swam everyday, multiple times. It was great to be just a few steps from the beach. The lake bottom was sandy. The property is quiet and secluded. The views of the lake from inside the cottage were great. When the weather was clear, there were spectacular sunsets over the lake. There is a nice, large firepit area with chairs and benches. The night it rained we had a fire in the fireplace, very cozy. The master bedroom has lake views and patio access. The property is close to dune filled state parks and smaller inland lakes. It is also close to a newly paved state biking trail through fruit orchards. Nearby Hart has a new brewpub. We went to two wineries within twenty minutes. The kitchen has an open design with views of the lake and is fully stocked for cooking with a full sized stove/oven and full sized refrigerator. The owner was a delight to meet and was available to answer questions before and during our stay. We were able to get cellular service at the cottage when needed, but it was fantastic to be unplugged for the week. If you like to fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves, this is the place!
