About the Owner/Manager

Kelly and Ken Crocker have owned and run their 2 cottage rental business since 1982. We love the lake and quietness of the surrounding woods. We are in our early 60's and plan to retire in a few years. We own 80 acres and spend our summer's in our 36' travel trailer parked on the acreage. The cottages are situated so we see the sunsets. The road is far enough behind each cottage that the road traffic is not noticeable and safe for children. We have made playgrounds for each cottage. We provide firewood, wifi, private beach areas and 5 non-motorized boats for each cottage. There are 4 bikes the cottages share for a ride around the lake. We also own 2 pontoon boats that are available to rent for the week.

Please feel free to call me at 616-402-8836 with any questions you have. After 34 years of renting I have heard every question you can think of. 3 SUP boards and 2 additional kayaks to rent for the week. Please ask if you are interested.
