Description of the Montague vacation cottage rental
Beautifully constructed Lake Michigan cottage nestled among old growth trees. Air-conditioned and gas fireplace. Beautiful, peaceful location. Large trees, wildflowers, low-traffic area. Surrounded by farmland. Enjoy a short walk across a private bridge to the 140 feet of sandy beach shared with one other cottage. Walk 70 steps down the stairs to small dunes on the lakefront. Stairway has a shaded large observation deck half way down that has built-in benches - a wonderful spot to enjoy the breezes and view.

Enjoy long beach walks, playing in the waves, building sand castles, or lying quietly on the beach reading your summer novel. Many enjoyable attractions nearby include the Hart - Montague bicycle trail, Silver Lake Sand Dunes, Blue Lake Music Camp, Michigan Adventure Amusement Park and many golf courses. The nearby lakeside towns of Montague and Whitehall offer fun shopping, a farmers' market, and fun eating spots, including an old-fashion soda fountain.

This is our retirement home: We look for renters who treat the cottage as their home.

Larger groups? Combine with adjoining property #68014 (2 bedrooms, sleeps 6).

Family beach vacation

June 18, 2014

The house was beautiful , plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 kids. Loved the gas fireplace and screened porch. The beach was nice and private just a lot of insects to deal with. Don and Sue were great and met us as we arrived. We had a really nice week and would like to stay again some time.

Donald Miller

Owner's reply:

We're glad you and your family enjoyed your stay in spite of the cool weather and the insects on the beach. With the weather being almost a month behind normal this year, we believe the insects may have been May Fly hatches which would normally happen sooner.
Please do try us again.
