Pet friendly Scenic and a quiet respite.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice and scenic neighborhood. Would rather stay in town for the price. Staircase is hard to manage. Stove needed cleaning but very clean otherwise.

Owner's Response: The neighborhood is very nice and very peaceful and a good walking area. The inside historic staircase can be difficult, but the outside stairway is very accessible. This home is 3 miles from town, however the prices do reflect that, especially during the peak season.

Fantastic little getaway cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend at this little cottage. It was unseasonably warm (aka hot) and we were so impressed with how cool the cottage stayed without air conditioning (there is a window unit in the upstairs bedroom). The décor, layout, amenities, and little details made it a very functional home base for our vacation. As others have said, need to bring bed linens, towels, toiletries, and of course food. We were impressed by how well stocked the kitchen was with dishes and cook-ware. There were even beach chairs and an umbrella to use.

I was initially nervous about the metal spiral staircase with our toddler son, but they have installed a railing and a board that can be slid down to block the opening to the stairs, which is thoughtful and made me feel much better about spending time upstairs.

Overall we were very impressed and happy with this cute little cottage and its location.

Great spot for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this Pentwater cottage. The house although nothing fancy was clean and had all the amenities needed to enjoy the area. We were happy to be able to bring our pups along and they loved running around in the large back yard. We had a great time taking out the Kayaks on Pentwater lake and used the fire pit for a campfire one of the evenings. It was a Short drive to downtown Pentwater and Ludington where we did most of our meals. We enjoyed the Hart-Montague trail for a long run and hiking in Ludington State park. Thank you Julia for letting us enjoy your cottage!

Perfect getaway from city life!

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was everything we needed for a weekend getaway with the pups. The first few hours after arrival, with no internet or cable, left my wife and I staring at each other wondering what to do. After 3 days I couldn't stand the thought of leaving! Pentwater was awesome and the cottage was perfect. Highly recommend taking the kayaks on pentwater river. Also the dog beach at mears is pretty great. We will be back!

Great summer cottage for the area - Cozy quarters

  • 4 of 5

Was a great summer cottage in a great location - great fun in Silver Lake, in Luddington, and in downtown Pentwater! As noted in the description, towels and sheets are NOT provided (somewhat unusual on VRBO), so make sure to bring your own. And as noted in the description, the quarters are pretty tight, however, it was fine for my family of four. Julia was great and pleasant to deal with, and quickly returned security deposit. I took one star off for the cleanliness of the corners, e.g., could use a good cleaning of window sills and light fixtures that contained some dead insects. But otherwise, everything else was in operational order and well maintained. Would definitely return!
