About Jenny Buck

Doctor Jenny Buck is a native of the White Lake area, having attended high school at nearby Montague High School. She graduated from Alma College and then Michigan State's College of Human Medicine. Jenny practices Obstetrics and Gynecology nearby in Muskegon and lives down the road on White Lake with her three little girls. Her and her girls lived in the vacation home for the past 9 years until their recent move. The home has been in the family for nearly 30 years. She or a member of her family is available to help you with any of your questions or needs.

Jenny Buck purchased this house in 2006

Why Jenny Buck chose Whitehall

This vacation home has the charm of a lake cottage with the amenities and architectural detail of a modern home. Come and relax on the deck and enjoy spectacular sunsets! The town of Whitehall is a short drive where you can find dining, groceries, and many small shops. Better yet is the shorter drive to beautiful sandy Lake Michigan Beaches.

What makes this house unique

The property underwent major renovation by the Buck family who transformed a small early 20th century cottage into an charming modern home. There is a large yard out front where kids can play far from the road.

Nice family vacation Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice home in a good location on White Lake. Being able to use the boat, kayaks etc was wonderful. Adults and kids all had a good time. Close to Lake Michigan beach at Duck Lake. Easy access to town and the Interstate. Owners were very responsive to our needs and had a nice welcome basket for us as well. Only drawback was the long staircase to the dock but I did get my exercise in. We ate, boated, fished, kayaked, and had good family time. Thanks guys!

Spectacular Sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

I wish we could give more stars! We have rented many VRBO homes, but this is by far our favorite place. The owners were wonderful hosts, and it showed in the small details, from the thick bath towels to a welcome basket full of coffee and s’mores ingredients. There was a woodpile for the (2) fire pits and ample fuel for the large gas grill. The kitchen was a dream, with a large stove and everything you need for efficient meal prep. We had grown kids, but families with younger kids will appreciate the sandbox, the toys, the high chair, bike trailers, basketball hoop, etc. There was so much here for outdoor fun, including a boat for tubing and fishing and a multi-level deck for viewing fabulous sunsets. Every night we watched the sun go down; inevitably someone would remark at how lucky we were. As far as location, it was a 10-minute drive to two beaches, the town, and a blueberry farm. Let me add that the owners were very responsive, working with us when we initially misunderstood the occupancy dates. Thank you, Charles and Jenny, for a fantastic vacation!

Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely beautiful. We went with 8 adults and 6 kids and had a great time. There was plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen and living area are definitely top-notch. The deck area is spacious and beautiful, with a wonderful view of the lake, which is exceptional at sunset.. The owners were a joy to work with, offering helpful assistance for us being new to the area. I appreciated the spacious front yard so my kids and I had room to throw a ball around. One thing to consider when looking at this place is that the lake shore is actually about 50+ stair steps down from the main floor of the house, which could be an issue for some. In a way it's nice because it makes for a beautiful view of the lake. I would HIGHLY recommend this place!

This place is sweet! Had a great Holiday week for July 4th!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for one week over July 4th. We had an incredible vacation! We were traveling with 3 adults and 4 children. This house has it all: great kitchen, hot tub, basketball hoop, kayaks, tubes, firepit, etc, etc. We went fishing everyday- great fishing right off the dock. The lake is amazing, too. I could go on and on. But truly, the most refreshing part of this rental is the owner. Chuck and Jenny went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Very prompt and super cool. Chuck even brought over brand new coloring supplies when he noticed we had a 6 year old with us. Also, we were greeted with a welcome basket that made me feel like I was getting concierge treatment. We hope to return next July 4th.
