Joy Meiser Mendis
This is a haven for water enthusiasts. Muskegon River is ideal for canoes, kayaks, boats or tubes. A summer day on Croton Pond finds pontoon boats, power boats of all sizes, water skiers and personal watercraft.
If you prefer your outdoor fun on land, you'll enjoy the miles and miles of woodland trails that beckon casual walkers, serious hikers, horse riders, dirt bikers and snowmobile enthusiasts alike.
Area golf courses offer challenge on the greens. Free parks provide picnics and swimming.
The town of Newaygo is a true delight--with its interesting shops, diverse eateries, artistic murals, seasonal festivals, homespun farmers market, riverside parks, and more.

Great place! Very clean, comfortable and in very good condition. There were only three of us, but it looks like 9 could fit comfortably. Nice view from the back. There is a long walk down steps to the water, but it was sturdy and only had to do it a few times a day. Although a rental, it is taken care of like it was a permanent residence. Nice woodwork inside. It may sound a bit petty, but the only wish I would have is to upgrade the DirecTV package -- it's really basic. Outside that, the place was great and would gladly stay again.

We loved Croton Cottage. It was perfect for our group. It was a short drive from home (2 hours) and had access to many trails for snowshoeing. The facilities were perfect with a big kitchen to cook for a large group, and enough beds for everyone. It even had a wood burning stove. A great time was had by all.

What a beautiful and relaxing place to spend a couple of days! It was very clean and the kitchen was stocked with every kitchenware you could ever need! This home is quite comfortable and spacious. The pond was so peaceful with all the ducks and swans! Joy had a binder with tons of information about the area, which was very helpful. We look forward to bringing our family back here to stay for a week! They certainly have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable! I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone!
Just wanted to tell you how very much we enjoyed the "cabin"!! We have stayed in cabins throughout Michigan, Indiana, Arkansas, Tennessee & even Utah and your house was far and away the BEST!!! I'm pretty critical...but your cabin was the cleanest, LOVED the sparkling white fluffy towels and wash cloths!! The plates matched and were not chipped or cracked, the beds were comfortable and the sheets matched. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware that was not battered & bent, and all the necessities like scotch tape, scissors, screw driver, as well as cooking utensils were right there. We slept well, ate well...and relaxed well. The fall colors against the lake were amazing to watch in the sunlight from the cabin. Our hope is to visit you again next September for more relaxing and salmon fishing. Dinah F., Jenks, OK
Definitely recommend this "lakeshore cottage" owned by Joy & Ken. Enjoyed watching nature & really appreciating God's world. The scenery is beautiful.

A-OKAY! I would come back with just my spouse! I think this would be awesome in the fall or winter months.

This cabin was such a nice surprise! Everything is clean, "modern" (new not old), and accessible.
