About Yolanta Nem
Our family searched for a vacation property for two years until we finally found our Perfect Cottage.
Yolanta Nem purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Yolanta Nem chose Mears
We fell in love with this property because of its 'Up North' feeling, convenient location and proximity to the lake Michigan. It was built in 1998 and owned by one loving owner. We decided to rent the cottage on the weeks our family is not using it to help out with taxes and maintenance. Welcome to our cottage! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Very quite, very well stocked with all you need. Bery clean and good A/c. Great place!
Family summer vacation to this property was outstanding. Beach is a solid walk, with gear and kids it’s a bit much, we drove. The stairs down to beach are easier at the county park and still lead to the private beach with chairs....very nice and private. I rode my bike back and forth to beach. Very easy. We also went on day trips to Mears, Ludington, and lighthouse beachs. All were great! Public beach’s have amenities whichnis nice for a day or two. Kayaking is close, dunes are close, Pentwater is a 15 min drive.
This house is close to main road but there is very little traffic and virtually none at night. Very quite and dark area. I took some amazing night sky pics. Dish satilite tv worked good most of the time. Internet is slow but it works well. Nice fire pit, but bring ax to split wood and bug spray. Bugs were a bit thick in mid July. Grill worked great and the place was stocked very well.
Owner was very easy to work with and I will rent this property again. Considering the price, 5+stars. Hope this helps you.
House was in a nice spot
The house was in a nice spot, love Mears and Pentwater. The house was not a luxury stay but was a nice getaway. When we arrived there were a ton of cobwebs in every corner of every room. Understandably, this is in the woods, but there was a cleaning lady and we shouldn't have had to deal with it or clean them ourselves. The mattresses were pretty hard. There were no pans to bake anything in or on to use the oven for. The washing machine also stained numerous items of our clothing that the rental insurance or owners wouldn't reimburse or adjust for. Loved the 4 seasons room and the firepit. Owners were nice to let us use their firewood.
A "Perfect" woodsy cottage within walking or a short drive to beach!
We had a very comfortable stay with plenty of room! The laundry room was a nice perk and you'll enjoy the fire pit in the evenings!
Wonderful week of vacation!
The perfect cottage was a wonderful place to stay for our family. This very clean cottage was well stocked with towels, sheets, blankets, chairs - even firewood! It has multiple places to relax outside in the shade, the fire pit it located close to the cottage, and the screened in porch was perfect for playing cards late into the night. The beach is about 3/4 mile walk down a shaded dirt road. Because the lake water is so high there wasn't much of a beach this year, though we did sit in the chairs and relax for a while. Easy drive to Pentwater beach or down to the dunes and Silver Lake. The cottage itself is roomy, smells good, is very clean and makes you want to relax and enjoy!
Indeed the perfect cottage :)
We had a great time, a wonderful mix of quiet and adventure ! Spent some quiet time around the house ,just cooked and watched movies .went to the dunes, kayakers on the pine river, bbq at the house, I even did breakfast on the fire outside one morning. Wish we had more time , maybe we can come again next year . Sunsets are beautiful down by the beach in the evenings ! I think I saw deer every evening too , so nice .
Cottage is wonderful -- very cute & plenty of room with nice deck & porch area. The area of Pentwater is so charming with lots to do. Loved the roomy cottage, it is very well maintained. Having a washer & dryer & dishwasher was divine! Owner was very quick with replies & friendly. Allowed our dog to join us which was wonderful. Beach is beautiful & is a minute drive down the road. Walk to the beach down quiet sandy road was also pleasant, sunsets over the lake were great, firepit was a huge hit, kitchen/house was clean and had everything needed. Definitely recommend!
