About Debra Kroeger

We are the Kroeger's. We have 4 children that are active in summer sports. Consequently, our children's sports have prevented us from using our lake cottage. As a result, we have decided to offer our cottage for rent to responsible families looking for a relaxing lake-side weekend or vacation.

Debra Kroeger purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Debra Kroeger chose Southwest Michigan

Hemlock Lake is a nice quiet spring fed lake that is great for fishing, swimming and water sports. If you are looking for a super clean, low traffic lake that offers much relaxation, this is the place for you. Our cottage is nicely furnished with a warm (cozy) feel. Easy to relax and unwind and escape the hustle and bustle. Our little piece of Pure Michigan is calling you...

What makes this cottage unique

Right in the heart of Southwest Michigan wine country. 15 minute drive to 2 major wineries located in nearby Paw Paw. Easy access to major airports located in Kalamazoo and South Bend.

Great Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My family (6 adults, 2 small children) enjoyed a wonderful weekend at the cottage. The 4-bedroom home was beautifully decorated, spacious enough for our large group, and directly on the clear, zero-entry lake -- great for small kids. It was supplied with a huge amount of water toys, life vests, and floats, as well as corn hole game for outside fun. And inside, there was a whole wall full of toys and games for the little ones. We'd love to come back one day.

Family summer fun

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice. There was enough room for all 7 adults and 2 small children. Had a small ant problem when we got there but it was resolved quickly. Beautiful water front. Great spot to be able to swim. The house was nicely stocked with just about everything you would need. Stores are fairly far away 10 min. Stop in Paw Paw on your way in will save from going back out. Great restaurant on Big fish lake that is about 10 min away. I would recommend this house for a great lake vacation.
