About Starr

We bought two properties in this resort. We use one for our family. We have 6 grandchildren that love coming out to ski, tube, swim, fish and have some campfires. We rent the other one to help us pay taxes, association fee and up keep. I work for the county of Kalamazoo and my husband has recently retired.

Starr purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Starr chose Michigan

This is a great lake for a family. Its shallow and great for small kids. It offers lots of activities on this lake.

What makes this cottage unique

Nature trails on the lake. Different beaches around the lake for the public. Close by restaurants, casino. Restaurants you can access from the water.

Convenient location to everything, great price and very cozy, nice place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with our dog stayed at this property for two nights! It was a last minute booking within a few days of our stay and the owner was very responsive to our questions. It is very conveniently located to everything- only about 20-30 minutes from downtown Grand Rapids where we spent a lot of our time. Very clean, nice and for a great price! We had a chance to meet the owners the day we left too. They were very nice and accommodating- allowing us a late check out with no problem! We look forward to staying here again!

More space than the pictures show

  • 4 of 5

We were happy to find a place to let our dogs stay for the weekend as we combined a hunting trip with a wedding. The cabin was surprisingly more spacious and comfortable inside than expected. We didn't use the dock but I'm sure that is a nice feature for summer rentals. Starr was very good with communication regarding the rental.

Hope to return.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time creating wonderful memories with family and friends. The owners are very helpful and accommodating.

The cabin had everything you could need including a blender.

Gun Lake is beautiful. We used our pontoon everyday. The weather was perfect. This cabin has a boat slip.

Short walk to the cabin.

We used the fire pit.

Hope to come back again.

Nice, clean, functionality

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Starr's cottage. It was very clean and comfortable. Access to the lake was great. My granddaughter had so much fun and met other children. The weather was pretty hot so the A/C was running almost non-stop and cooled efficiently.

Would definitely recommend it for those who have children but don't want expense and hassle of hotels for a week.

Great unit, great area, great price.

  • 5 of 5

I grew up playing on and enjoying Gun Lake. Whispering Pines is an excellent choice for individuals, families or large groups. There are several rental options very close together with shared lake frontage, allowing for a lot of flexibility of price, space and amenities depending on how close to the lake you want to be. This cabin is one of several. It is laid out nicely and feels spacious. It stands out because it includes linens (many do not), the use of a paddle boat (none of the other units offer this), and is very well equipped with lots of comforts. There are nice chairs, a fire pit, marshmallow roasting sticks, a crockpot, and even basic spices. It was very clean. My small complaint about any of these cabins is that there are not true walls separating the bedrooms from the main area. It is basically one great room with some dividers for viewing privacy, but not noise privacy. The resort is a lot of fun and excellent for kids. Our group loved the sandy beach, play sets and nice shallow swimming area with an anchored raft to play on. We also opted to rent a pontoon boat from the owners of this cabin. Overall, we had everything we needed or wanted for a very reasonable price.
