Reviews for this vacation cottage rental in Muskegon, Michigan
June 23, 2014
Thank you for the use of you cottage on Wolf Lake. We had a wonderful time: the cottage was well appointed with all the accessories one could ask for; the sunsets were quite beautiful; the lake was perfect. it was also a great home base to enjoy the Lake Michigan shore as we went from Whitehall to Grand Haven and many spots in between. It was the perfect vacation.

Very nice place to stay! Very quiet relaxing and a great place to take your children. We will definitely be returning:)
Had A Wonderful Time
October 15, 2013
We had a very relaxing and fun weekend getaway. The cottage is very nice and comfy, the fishing was great for my husband. I spent time in the backyard and down by the lake just admiring God's handiwork. The first day, there were two eagles perched in the tree right behind the cottage by the lake.We did not want to leave and we are already talking about going back next year for a longer period. Thanks for the memories we took back with us.

Beautiful home, yard and beach....but....
September 13, 2013
My husband and I and our three dogs enjoyed our time in this lakefront home. Everything in the home was great. We loved the lake, beach, kayaks, etc.... but.....we had a real problem with the neighbor's dog's (on both sides). We own a canine hydrotherapy business in a Chicago suburb, and we have three dogs we would never board in a kennel, which is why our vacations include our dogs. One is 11, another is a three-legged , senior missing an eye and almost blind, the third has deformed front legs. Our dogs are our babies, and their well-being comes first to us. We have travelled with them often, renting "pet-friendly" homes in Michigan and Wisconsin. We rented this home in hopes of having a relaxing weekend. We were fine while indoors, however, while we were out in the back yard with our dogs on leash we had to constantly worry about the neighbor's dogs (off-leash) coming into the yard. We are very responsible dog owners abiding by all leash laws, and respecting our neighbors around us, both at home and on vacations! We were appalled by the thoughtlessness of the neighbors on both sides (especially those to the south, with the large dog). We tried several times to approach them to let them know of our concerns, and every time they saw us coming they walked away. We picked their dog's waste at least three times from the yard and beach! The other neighbor's two dogs charged the back door just as I slid the screen door closed after taking my dogs out at 7:30a.m. Way too stressful for us! Loved the home, but can't return because of both neighbor's dogs being off-leash!!!!! If you don't have dogs, great place to stay! Have Dogs....NO!!!!
The neighbors do let their dogs out without leashes but they are not out constantly and they do not pose a threat to dogs or people. I wish the renters had contacted me during their stay, as I would have called the neighbors immediately to ask that they supervise/leash their dogs for that time period, which I know they would have done. I have not had this complaint before in my six years of renting, but would happily accommodate any future renter who needs special consideration for their dogs.
Beautiful Little Cottage

We really enjoyed our stay. There are so many things provided by the owners for visitors to use. Everything was in good working order. The kids did not want to leave! There are a lot of things to do not too far away...Michigan Adventure, miniature golf, salmon fishing etc... Great times were had! Thank-you McDiarmid Family

Great Vacation Home!

We had a great time staying at this house. The house was very clean and maintained very well. Everything we needed was there! The kids loved the beach and all of the toys provided. The lake was perfect. It was a great depth for our young children, and a nice warm temperature. I would highly recommend this place if your looking for a family vacation!

Relaxing, Fun Week
July 27, 2013
Would love to keep this place a secret it is so nice. Very, very clean, quiet and relaxing. Comfortable queen bed, kids loved the bunk bed, Large bedroom bathroom with stackable washer & dryer. Outside fire pit had plenty of seating with a swing. Water front was excellent. Lots of seating to relax, paddle boat, fishing boat, kayaks, life jackets and lots of kids toys. I plan on booking next year for our Anniversary. On that note, we had trouble getting the old oven going. We gave up. The 2nd bathroom is small but has nice stand-up shower but barely can sit on the toilet in there. The stairs to loft bedroom is in the living room which you must go around. With that said, I still would highly recommend this place to everyone. The best, clean and updated place I have been in.
I wish they had contacted me about the stove, I have never had anyone have that issue before...the stove is working fine and we have directions on operating it in our informational binder kept at the cottage. We will always do anything we can if any problems arise. Otherwise a very fair review.
Thank you ! Lori and family

Great first visit to Michigan
June 28, 2013
We are a family of 5 and found this rental to be very clean and comfortable for all our needs. We loved the new dock, fishing boats and there were plenty of lounge chairs around lake and fire pit area. The home is equipped with everything you need. The grill was great and the washer and dryer came in real handy with 3 boys. Everything really was here! This home has amazing views and quiet, relaxing atmosphere! Great experience would recommend to anyone headed to this area wanting to enjoy the outdoors but have the comforts of home!
June 14, 2013
This is the 2nd time we have stayed here and it keeps getting better and better. The owners updated the property a lot and it was wonderful. The house looks great with all the newly remodeled features. The new dock was outstanding. Very relaxing vacation and a pleasure to stay there.

A really great weekend
October 2, 2012
We had a pleasant drive across the state viewing the leaves changing colors. The cottage was ready on time, it was super clean and comfy. After quickly unpacking, we made a b-line for Wolf Lake which was quiet and we took the rowboat around the lake followed by making a campfire, thanks for having firewood there for us to use. The following day we took a short drive to Lake Michigan for some fun with our dog Basil and had another evening campfire and grilling on the huge grill out in back. Although the cottage has neighbors near by we didn't see anyone the whole weekend. It was super relaxing, and we plan on passing the word on to our friends and making plans for repeat visits.
September 25, 2012
We had great time, this was a special getaway for us! It was very relaxing. The cottage had everything!!!!!we needed. I would recommend to anyone looking for great place in the area. Our daughter goes to school in Milwaukee, so she was able to come over on the ferrry and spend a coupl of days out of her busy schedule, great time. Our dog loved it. The stairs to the beach gave us some exersize, who doesn't need that?:) Loved it.

Great choice for outdoor relaxing/entertaining
August 15, 2012
The property is really beautiful and spacious. We spent most of our time around the fire pit, either reading or visiting with nearby relatives. The water sports were easy and enjoyable. The living area is a bit dated, however we found it comfortable. Fans came in handy on the warmer afternoons. The window A/C unit in the bedroom performed well and kept us cool at night. We liked all the storage, hooks and available toys for visiting children. The more modern bathroom and washer/dryer were a plus. The older stove was intimidating but we did use it once, so we got over it. Toaster could be replaced, it seemed to be on it's last leg. Coffee maker, microwave and refrigerator all worked fine. The back yard was the highlight for us. The picnic table, patio area and fire pit all made great spots to visit and enjoy the quiet sounds of the lake. I went for a run a couple mornings and encountered three deer crossing the road. That was cool!

July 25, 2012
THe cottage was exactely what we were looking for. Secluded but convenient to other local attractions. We found everything exactly how it was described online.(not so with other properties we considered). THe communication with the owner was smooth and everything went as promised. THe deposit was returned in 3 days after our stay was done. We will definitely be back to hubbard woods cottage in the future. Thank you for helping this vacation be fun and relaxing all at the same time. Sincerely Gordon and Stephanie Velasco
September 29, 2011
We had a nice time at your cottage. Everything is there as described. Thanks for sharing. We really enjoyed the property and lake. We will definitely be back in the summer.

GREAT Cottage for our Getaway!!!
September 2, 2011
Thanks so much for the opportunity to stay at your lovely cottage. It TRULY had everything we needed/wanted. We've been home for less than a week and received our deposit...you were great to do business with for sure! We have been recommending you to so many because we know what a gem of a property you have there on Wolf Lake. We relaxed on the beach, around the firepit, at the picnic table with the kids...We explored at Lake MIchigan, the Sand Dunes...the farmer's markets...& downtown Muskegon. We accidentally stopped by the little restaurant called Courses and the Sweet Spot which we learned is put on by the Michigan Institute of Culinary Arts...the pastries we got were FABULOUS and very inexpensive...and did I mention the Red Haven peaches from the farmer's market down the street...so good! We fished, we swam, we pedal boated, we watched gorgeous sunsets every night, we chatted with the friendly neighbors...we taught our 10 year old lab to jump off the dock into the water...a feat we'd tried many times over the years....he finally did it! Then he begged for us to throw his toy from the dock. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks! What a great place...we have some wonderful memories. And...I never like to do "chores" on vacatoin but the washer & dryer were so convenient that I went ahead and did some clothes before coming home which was great because upon arrival here in NY we had power outages from the hurricane/tropical storm and what a relief to have clean laundry. Thank you so much for the great space to hang out with family on the lake!!!
Highly recommended cottage!
July 24, 2011
Great cottage on a clean lake! The amenities were wonderful and the location was perfect for Michigan's Adventure, Silver Lake Sand Dunes and dowtown Grand Haven. Definitely recommend staying here!
We had an excellent time at Hubbard Woods Cottage.
July 3, 2011
Our stay at Hubbard Woods Cottage was great! We couldn't have asked for more. The cottage was fully equipped with all we needed, from house to beach area. We had a lot of fun. I would recommend this cottage to others and we will definitley be back again sometime. Everything was as promised by the owners. GREAT EXPERIENCE!

A Little Piece of Tranquility
June 12, 2011
Our family rented the Hubbard Woods Cottage on Wolf Lake for 7 days. We had a great time. I don't think you could ask for more if you're looking to relax and have a peaceful time. The lake is nice. Our family enjoyed the kayaks and pedal boat that come with the cottage rental. We also enjoyed the beautiful sunsets and sitting around a fire at night.We went to Michigan Adventure and several of the State Parks, that are near by. I would recommend Pere Marquette if you are looking for a nice beach and swimming in Lake Michigan. The time went by too fast. I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking to get away and have a relaxing time.

A Peaceful Retreat
May 21, 2011
What a beautiful setting to get away to... we spent seven days in mid-May at this wonderful lakeside cabin and it was difficult to leave. The sunsets were breath-taking... the quiet of the lake and the woods was peaceful... we truly enjoyed out time at Hubbard Woods and were thankful that we had chosen to stay there... you have everything that you need, you just bring your person items, clothes and food... and we took our boat, but there are boats there for your use. Great choice, great place!
October 6, 2010
We had a great week at the cottage this fall. The cottage worked out very well for a relaxing get away. We enjoyed many sites in the surrounding areas as well as the wineries. Our dogs traveled with us which worked out well with the cottage too. As promised the sunset views from the cottage were fabulous. Overall this was everything we thought it would be. We would definitely go back to this property.

Relaxingweek on the lake
August 6, 2010
Just got back from a 5 night stay and we had a great time. My boys (8-6yrs) had a blast playing on the "iceberg", driving the paddleboat and fishing off the pier. Cabin is a bit on the small side but it is supposed to be. We spent almost all of our time outside by the lake. Close to Lake Michigan, MiAdventure and plenty of golf courses. Cooked a couple of meals on the charcol grill and went to a local pizza place for a couple more. Great pizza at Wolfies. I was lucky enough to play golf StoneGate golf course. Great course!!! Went to Sodini blueberry farm and u-picked 15lbs of blue berries for $20. What a great deal. The highlight of the vacation was the 45 minute drive north to Silver Lake park. The kids loved the MacWoods dune ride. Absolutely stunning views. Can't believe we were in Michigan. Everything one needs for a great family vacation is at this cabin. We can't wait to come back next year. Thanks Lori.
Family fun time
August 1, 2010
After a week of quality family time we are enjoying our memories of our stay on Wolf Lake. The cabin is nothing fancy, but for us it was far more solid and much more relaxing the tent we had used in the past while in Michigan. We enjoyed reading stories with our girls everynight while looking over the lake as the sun woul set. The girls loved fishing with daddy every morning and there was no shortage of fish to catch (and put back straight away). We had everything we needed. I would have liked to have been able to open the bedroom windows for sleep at night but that is such a minor thing compared to the overall relaxing and enjoyable time we had.

Sun, water, family, fun, smores, campfires, what could be better. My 10 year old told me it seemed like I was turning into a kid again.
October 9, 2009
I had set up a surprise birthday get-away for my fiance and I without his knowledge, and we were both completely blown away with the cottage and view from the moment we arrived. The cottage was spotless, and felt so much like home that we were able to relax and completely enjoy our vacation right away. The use of the lake, boats, and toys was a definite bonus that I could not find in any other cottage rentals. Everything on the owner's end was handled in a timely, professional manner and my fiance and I are already planning our next vacation there! Thank you for an absolutely wonderful vacation that we will be raving about for until the next one out there!

Terrific family cottage!
August 31, 2009
Fantastic family cottage to stay at. Our kids (7&5) loved the loft area which was stocked with toys. They also loved the different variety of games to play, Disney Charades was a hit! It was nice to just have to bring our clothes and personal items and not have to worry about anything else. Nice location, not too far to get to amenities and beautiful beaches!
Great Kid Friendly Cottage
August 26, 2009
Very nice place to take a family vacation. The cottage is very well furnished with lots to do especially for the little ones. Indoors are many games, toys, nintendo system, cards, etc. Outside the owners have numerous water toys, lifejackets, boats, and more. Great place to stay and would recommend it to others and will definitely consider this cottage for future vacations.

We had a nice week at this cottage. It was very relaxing. We enjoyed the space mountain, pedal boat, kayaks and fishing boat. The only problem (only in our case) was the sleeping arrangement. I would recommend this cottage to others.

Once again we have enjoyed our stay at Hubbard Woods immensely!!! Other than two days of rain, the rest of our stay was more than perfect! But even with the rain we had a blast with all the games provided! This year was special for us as we brought along our exchange student from Spain who in his words had an "awesome time"! We are planning to make this our yearly get away vacation as long as you have it available for rent!! Thanks for providing such a fun and relaxing place to stay! It's so nice to only have to pack your clothes to bring and not worry about the rest! We bought our groceries at the store by the cottage!!!

We had a great time at this cottage on the Lake. It was very close to Grand Haven, where there is always something "happening." Lori was wonderful to work with and the cottage provided all of the amenities we could have asked for. Thank you for a fun, relaxing getaway weekend this spring! I highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a family getaway!

One of the BEST family vacations!
September 23, 2008
We just came back from our family vacation at Hubbard Woods Cottage(Sept.8-13). We arrived to a very clean, cozy and charming cottage. It was everything we needed for our time together as a family. Our kids loved every minute of their time inside and outside of the cottage. They spent hours each day down on the beach, playing in the water and with the toys, riding the paddle boat, in the kayak and Space Mountain. We left feeling refreshed and reconnected as a family. Our children have been asking if we can go back to the cottage next year! Thanks for a offereing this slice of peacefulness to others.
Best Place in Michigan
September 21, 2008
Thank you for sharing your hidaway with us. You made vacationing a whole lot easier. It was everything that you discribed and more. The view was awesome, along with the sunsets. Fishing was very good, right off the dock. We caught over 20 fish. Yellow perch,sunfish and bass. Very peaceful and tranquil. Campfires also in the top 10. Firewood included too! Very affordable and very clean. Will be back next year for sure. We didn't want to leave. Thank you for everything.
Perfect location, very clean and great space!
September 10, 2008
We really enjoyed our weekend at this cottage on wolf lake! The house was very clean when we came in and really offered ALL of the amenities you could ever ask for. The neighbors on the right were very nice and also helpful. The beach is so clean and just perfect for swimming and fishing. We are excited to come back next year and are recommending it to our family and friends for their family vacations. Thank you for a memorable vacation!
Michigan at it's best

Very nice serene place for a family vacation. Beautiful lake. We liked it a lot.
Great family time!
August 4, 2008
We had a wonderful time just relaxing and spending quality time together as a family! It was the perfect mix of having nearby things to do (Lake Michigan, Michigan's Adventure, etc.) and just hanging out at the lake and relaxing. My boys loved playing and sleeping in the loft. Having all the linens and dishes already there and being able to do laundry really makes packing so much easier!

We Miss it Already!!!
July 26, 2008
What a wonderful place to stay! We couldn't have been happier with this cottage. Dave & Lori, you've made vacationing so much less stressful for us! Everything was already there and we wanted for nothing. Our four children just loved Space Mountain and spent nearly all their time between that, the kayak and paddle boat! We already miss it and want to go back and are planning on renting again next year! Thanks so much for sharing your hideaway!
June 10, 2008
Great cottage with plenty to do. Owners were very accommadating, which made packing and travel smooth. With the kayak, paddle boat, and fishing boat there was enough to keep several people busy. Beach was nice with many toys to make the kids happy. One slight downfall were the steps to get get to these items.
June 5, 2008
The cottage was well equipped with everything you need. It was clean cozy and quiet. The owners were vey helpful in giving directions for the area. We will do a it again soon.
February 19, 2008
Beautiful home, in a fun area with lots to do. The owners are kind and very gracious! Thank you very much for all of your efforts!
Great Value - Biking nearby
February 3, 2008
We stayed here in 2005 and 2006 and enjoyed both trips. Very quiet setting on a nice sized lake that is perfect for smaller children. Sandy bottom and gradual depth so they can go out a decent length from shore. For those that want to cycle this is a prime spot. You can pick up the Musketawa Trail about 10 minutes away for a rails to trails that is paved 26 miles one way. Also drive to Grand Haven and you can take Lakeshore Drive along Lake Michigan down into Holland. Very wide paved shoulders. I preferred the Grand Haven to Holland ride as it is more scenic. You could also drive 20 miles north to Whitehall and pick up the trail there. Did not get a chance to make that trip. As far as Lake Michigan go to PJ Hoffmaster Park for the dunes or the Muskegon City Beach for miles of sand. A nice little county park north of Muskegon is Meinhart. Lots of beach there with very little crowds during the week.
The Great Outdoors
November 1, 2007
Small cottage on a beautiful lake! The lake view is gorgeous day and night. Great state parks close by- awesome for those who vacation w/ dogs! You can have a weekend getaway just at the cottage or venture out. We got the best Honey Crisp Michigan apples and saw Lake Michigan in all its glory at different parks. Ideal for those who love the outdoors!

This quaint cottage far exceeded our expectations. The lake is quite picturesque and the cottage itself is clean and cute, and complete with everything you might need. The area was gorgeous and there is plenty to do, or you can just stay back and enjoy the solitude of this kept-away cottage. We're definitely planning on coming back in the summer so we can take better advantage of the lake activites.
Nice Family Cottage
October 20, 2007
Though it has a small outside look, we found it to have plenty of room for our whole family. Pretty much everything we needed was there. Nice sandy beach, plenty of outside seating for guests, shade near cottage for those hot days. The only downside for some renters may be the steps leading to the beach (about 45)which we had no problem with, but some with physical problems may have trouble. Plenty of sleeping space and two bathrooms. Nice clean lake for swimming and the private road keeps it quiet day and night. We really enjoyed our stay.
We have included EVERY review we have ever gotten for our cottage and they are not altered in any way. They come directly from past vacationers. As you can see, many have taken the time to comment positively and have helped us build a great reputation for our cottage. A few reviews contain fixable issues that we wished renters had called us to take care of during their stay! We are very accessible and do all we can to make stays enjoyable. We are proud and pleased to offer an affordable family vacation cottage on beautiful Wolf Lake.
