About the property

2 bedroom, 1 bath, Stunning Lake Views.

Welcome to our Paw Paw getaway. Our family has enjoyed paw paw for decades and has decided to share that joy with others.

Tucked away past the dam you will find the Paw Paw Cottage. A quaint cedar shake 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage with a large yard and dock. This cottage is perfect for a small family or couple that wants to just get away and relax. Breathtaking views of the sunrise over Maple Lake pierce the west facing windows. Steam rises from the lake as the Blue Heron makes his usual fishing stop at the end of the dock. Morning fishermen trolly along the lakes edge and disappear into the cove. Enjoying a fresh cup of coffee while taking in all the sights is simply joyful.

For the adventurous soul there are 2 paddle boards of differing lengths in the garage. They are very easy to use and will provide a fun and relaxing time on the water. Don't forget to paddle to the island and walk along the sandy shore.

Nearby we have the famous St. Julian Winery. A family tradition dating back many decades. I would recommend a tour. And a wine tasting! :)

A little over 30 minutes away is the town of South Haven. One of the most beautiful beach towns in all of Michigan. Highly recommended!

And you can always visit a fresh produce stand or blueberry farm.

Best little family vacation, peacful little cottage in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved loved loved everything about our one week stay at the cottage. Beautiful view, only 30 min away from South Haven, Coloma, Saint Joseph, & Kalamazoo. This vacation was everything we hoped for, the cottage had everything we needed. Loved the water toys, took the boat out to the island, went fishing, used the paddle boards, and even rented a Jet Ski for the day. The lake is clean, beautiful, and quiet. Our 4 year old son and 2 dogs did not want to leave. We loved the neighbors and their dogs, and the owners are very sweet and easy to deal with. 5 out of 5 stars! We will be back!

Great quiet place for a vacation on the lake

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was great, it was really nice inside and there was a lot of room.. The paddle boat, paddle boards were great to have on hand when we had family up to visit for the day. A lot of wildlife to watch and see on the lake and in the yard. It was really a quiet place to go for relaxation and down time. It rained and was overcast the first half of the week but that was OK, we read a lot and played games. the island across the way was great to look at, the swans and their signets went on shore to sleep it was fun to watch them. At this time I think we will book this again for next year, it's only 1 3/4 hours from Plymouth/Bremen area in Indiana. A lot a good places to eat in town if you want, we did go to Great China downtown one night, nice buffet and good food. This is a very good place to stay for quiet and relaxation and fun in the water. Thanks!!

Great family ski trip

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful family getaway and a terrific ski day with our boys at Timber Ridge. I am sure the cottage boasts a beautiful lakeside location in the summer. Very convenient location...near town and the ski resorts are close. Nice memories. :)

cottage on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Went here for the Thanksgiving weekend while visiting family. Cozy and quaint little cottage with an amazing view of the lake. It was so relaxing just sitting and looking out the window. The dog enjoyed playing in the yard and we enjoyed the small town and nearby activities.
