Winter is fine for a month or two, bu now it's time for a nice, relaxing, fun-in-the-sun vacation with family and friends! Or maybe you need some quiet time to catch up on your reading or your writing. Or you just need to get out of the city, the hustle-and-bustle, and breathe the fresh air!
It's time! Time to get out into the countryside! And not just any countryside will do!
Come stay at our very charming cottage on beautiful Lake Michigan, conveniently located just a 45 minute drive from the Grand Rapids Int'l Airport and 2 1/2 hours from Chicago.
Just a short walk to the white sand beach through a top-rated park, you can enjoy your morning coffee, listening to the lapping of calm Lake Michigan, or watch the gorgeous sunset in the evening.
Not only does the park offer over 600 feet of sandy beach, but it also includes a baseball diamond, picnic tables, 2 modern restroom buildings, and a playground.
Or, enjoy drinking a glass of wine (or whatever is your preference) on the deck, in the privacy of your own miniature park, back at the cottage, while listening to the cicadas and watching the fireflies. Or visit with your friends, late into the night, watching the stars, around the firepit, roasting marshmallows...
Our lovely 2 bdrm 1 bathroom cottage sleeps up to 6 people, includes a fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning, a barbeque, washer and dryer, free long-distance calling and wifi, for your convenience.
If you decide to venture out, you will love the wineries, chocolaterias, steamboat tours, restaurants, pubs, art galleries, museums, parks, festivals in the nearby towns of Douglas, Saugatuck and South Haven, or go hiking up Mt. Baldy! (We include more information in our welcome package, and would be happy to answer any other questions, if we can!)
For all you beer lovers, West Michigan features many award winning micro-breweries, all within a short distance.

The owners are so helpful, sweet, prompt and hungry for input. We enjoyed our stay so much!!! We housed two married couples, three kids under 6 and some teenagers and it was tight but in a fun 'together' kind of a way. The beach is down a hefty flight of stairs but is so beautiful and secluded that it is no inconvenience to make the walk to the house and back. The kids were able to run free on the beach, waves were small but fun. The basement playroom was not small child material when we were there, however it looks like it has had an awesome makeover since then. HIGHLY Recommend this rental!!!

We have stayed at several rentals from Florida to Michigan... But I have to say so far, this has been the best experience we have had so far! The owners were eager to make sure we had a great time! They were wiling to work with us as we had a dog! They checked on us regularly, but not annoying! The beds were so comfortable! Lots of dishes and towels! Basement for the kids! Yay! The house was better then the description! I will definitely be staying here again!
