We look forward to hosting your group and hope you enjoy the property as much as we do.

Clean but no hot water...

  • 4 of 5

First impression this house was clean. If you rent houses often you know some houses are the opposite of clean. Nicely decorated, furnished appropriately and stocked with everything we could have needed. My husband (who had to find something wrong) commented he may have liked a chair or two that could be easily moved around inside the house, but plenty of places to sit. The outside had plenty of chairs set out on the deck overlooking the quaint lake. The homeowner informed me the lawn was being mowed about the same time as our arrival. Due to a lot of seasonal rain the grass was like a sponge our entire stay. Like a sponge is not an exaggeration, each step you would sink an half inch. The kids would have liked to play on the grass area but that wasn’t happening with the wet ground situation. The weather was hot while we were there reaching 95° one day (No A/C, but we knew this before renting). Each room had a working fan. Why I mention the heat is because I mentioned the wet grass, usually heat and wet produce bugs. This was not the case. We were pleasantly surprised the lack of bugs. Besides the tiny ants biting (probably because their ground was flooded) no other biting bugs were discovered. The first night of our stay we realized the hot water tank was not functioning. Our group of ten made the best of the situation and the home owner, who was out of the country, appropriately and timely responded to our needs. We drove about 30 minutes to South Haven public beach one afternoon. Stopped at a few local breweries. The charming and quiet house sits on a lake with other similar houses. All houses are spaced far enough apart that you barely knew there was neighbors. We rented this specific house mainly because of the location (a ten minute drive to my sons house in Kalamazoo).

Wonderful weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

There were 10 of us that stayed in this cottage and had a lovely long weekend. The cottage fits 10 just fine. The cottage is nicely decorated and clean. The lake has a small sandy area just at the edge of the property that is nice an shallow. Our kids had a ball playing in that area, looking for frogs and fishing. We rented a boat which was lots of fun too. The lake was nice and warm and we enjoyed bon fires in the evening. Highly recommend this property!

Cozy and relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with 2 families (4 adults, 3 kids, and 1 baby) and the house was the perfect size. It is nicely decorated - very open and airy and also very cozy. There is a wonderful view of the lake from inside and out. The property owners were great to work with and very accommodating. The house was well stocked with essentials too.

As for things to do...there is a small sandy area of the lake on the property where you can swim. We spent a lot of time doing that. The lake is very quiet, peaceful, and clean . We even spotted a swan one morning. And, if your kids enjoy catching frogs, you've come to the right spot! There is also a fire pit at the house.

Paw Paw town is about 10 minutes away for grocery shopping and a few restaurants. A couple of recommendations: Amore has delicious pizza and the Paw Paw Brewery has great and inexpensive food (and is kid-friendly).

We also had a nice day trip to South Haven to hang out at the beach on Lake Michigan. It was only about 25-30 minutes away. Very fun and definitely recommend it.

We would definitely stay at the house again!
