Sunset Cottage. (Recently remodeled)
average rating of 4.923077 based on 13 reviews

Excellent rental. Fabulous property.

  • 5 of 5

Great house. Immaculately kept. Everything you need provided. Beautiful sunsets.

Two full baths, neither en suite, so easy sharing. If all adults house sleeps six. If children are involved, eight (0ne bedroom is essentially a pass through to two other bedrooms).

Owner excellent, and the place surpassed our expectations. The view is stunning.

Fantastic Time on Lake Paw Paw

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Sunset Cottage. The cottage is very clean and comfortable with amazing views of Lake Paw Paw. There wasn't one thing that we needed that wasn't supplied at the house. We were in town for my son's wedding at the Blue Dress Barn and the Sunset Cottage was a great place for the family to relax following the wedding activities. Wish we could have stated longer.
