About the property

One Bedroom, One Bathroom Cottage That Sleep 2 Adults and 2 small children

Welcome to our quaint lakefront cottage, located less than one hour from Grand Rapids, Michigan this cottage will make you feel a million miles from the city! Situated on the beautiful all sports Clifford Lake, this property has 72 feet of private lake frontage. A perfect getaway for a small family, or empty nesters, our one bedroom, one bathroom abode has a queen bed in the bedroom. The best part about the cottage is there are NO close neighbors, conveniently located adjacent to the public boat launch we are surrounded on the east by woods and to the west there are 3 vacant lots. Have your morning coffee on the deck and not have to worry about being bothered by “typical” cottage neighbors.

The property is fully furnished with everything a rustic lakefront home requires, including complete kitchen, T.V., DVD player, paddle boat, canoe, dock, gas grill, picnic table, lounge chairs, lawn games and much more, although there is no A/C we usually have a nice breeze off the lake. Guests are more than welcome to bring their own watercraft and dock them at the lakeside.

Clifford Lake is the premier lake in Montcalm county, boasting over 200 acres of pristine water, this all-sports lake has everything; excellent fishing, great boating, jet skiing, and other water sports, the lake also boasts the unique feature of having a wonderful restaurant right on the lake. The Clifford Lake Inn has a history that dates back over 100 years and offers a unique lakeside dining experience. During the week the lake has minimal traffic and on the weekends there is only moderate boat traffic, but plenty of lake for all to enjoy. Another wonderful thing about the location of Clifford Lake is that it is within 5 minutes of 3 other large all sports lakes. This is the perfect location for a week of boating or fishing on multiple lakes with ease (if you bring your own boat). There are more lakes in Montcalm county than any other county in the state of Michigan. This area also is well known for the "Fred Meijer Heartland Trail", a unique and wonderful paved, walking, running and biking trail that is over 125 miles long and all of it locally, is paved. Please ask any questions you may have, we'd be happy to have you!

About Gabe & Jessica

The cottage is owned by husband and wife, Gabe and Jessica. They bought the cottage for themselves and decided to offer it for rent during the times they are not there. They love the quiet and peaceful retreat of the cottage and enjoy spending their free time here.

Why Gabe & Jessica chose Western Michigan

We bought this property for its size and location, we wanted a small and manageable cottage that we could someday add on to. The location was the selling point for us as there are NO CLOSE NEIGHBORS, something you don't find on lakes.

What makes this cottage unique

The property boasts some unique wildlife and features, we have seen deer, rabbits, squirrels and other creatures right out the front door, there is a wetland type area across the road that has frogs, turtles and other animals. The best part about Clifford lake is the restaurant that sits right on the lake so you can dine lakeside if you want. We love it here and know you will too.

Great Getaway Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I needed a place to get away from work and classes. Rather than book a motel room, we decided to book here, and we couldn't be happier. Great little cottage, beautiful location. The owners are very pleasant and quick to reply with any needs or questions. We can't wait to go back sometime.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend and had a wonderful time, no complaints at all. The place was clean and had everything we needed. Our 2 boys (ages 4 & 5) got in plenty of swimming & fishing time and loved the stay as well. Would definitely return.

US Marines Loved This Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Marine couple that stayed here is from Fairfield, Ohio and they loved it! They plan to come back next year. Gabe and Jessica have provided us with a beautiful lakefront cottage for our Marines. The cottage is very cozy with a lot of privacy. We will definitely book this cottage for many years to come! Thank you for being the patriots you are!
