Only one week still available for July (but probably not for long!) – 7/19 to 7/26.

Click on the calendar tab above and see what remaining summer dates are still open.

Pandemic restrictions have eased! So what are you waiting for? Round up the family, load up the car and head to Bostwick Lake leaving all those weeks of stress, anxiety and isolation far, far behind you!

Our crew has spent countless hours cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting the cottage. Things that we might have quickly cleaned like switches, doorknobs and remote controls are now receiving special attention.

The Corona Virus Pandemic curve is flattening and the long-term outlook is positive. Not only will we all weather this storm, but a V-curve economic recovery is likely as Americans already can’t wait to show the world that the US economy can recover quickly!

Working from home, adjusting to homeschooling our kids, helping and protecting our elderly family members as well as our neighborhoods and cities is causing almost unbearable stress.

Consider renting our cottage this summer for some much needed relief and rejuvenation. Our cottage is “socially distanced” with both side yards measuring a good 25’ away from the neighbors and 40’ from the backdoor to the road. Using our high speed wireless internet service you can easily set up office space on the Sun Porch. Surrounded by windows on three sides as you work, you can keep an eagle eye on the kids playing on the lawn or doing some homework under a gigantic, shady maple tree. Lunch break could be hot dogs toasted over the fire pit and s'mores for dessert.

1,100 square feet is perfect for a couple or small family. Gathering family and friends, our cottage will sleep 14. Our large full Bathroom even holds 14 sets of bath and hand towels! The Half Bathroom is located between Bedrooms 2 and 3.

Sleeping arrangements: Bedroom 1, just off the Kitchen, contains two double size futons. With the option of unfolding both the room turns into one great big mattress. Perfect for a bunch of kiddos - think of snuggling puppies. Bedroom 2 and Bedroom 3 both have double beds.

Our Living Room contains a double sofabed, as well as a single unfolding ottoman bed. The Sunporch has two queen size pull-out sofabeds and a single unfolding ottoman bed. We provide our guests with bedding and linen.

Well equipped Kitchen: Electric stove, refrigerator, stacked washer and dryer, garbage disposal, microwave, toaster, mixer, blender, waffle iron, popcorn popper, crock pot, tea kettle and coffee maker. We also provide dishes, silverware, pots and pans, baking utensils and paper goods.

After a day on the lake pop some corn, snuggle up and enjoy!

Unique Features

Welcome to the Gold Coast of Bostwick Lake!

Our cottage is tucked away in a quieter cove at the South East end of the lake. If you're an early morning riser sip your coffee on the front porch and be mesmerized by its' glassy stillness and our wildlife.

You can watch the fish jump for their breakfast or count how many turtles pass by with little noses just clearing the water. Last summer a family reported seeing a pretty big Snapping Turtle basking under the cherry tree. Be sure to give him lots of space! And if you're really lucky a Heron and his mate will land at the end of the dock to preen and show off their incredible wing spans. A pair of swans will sometimes cruise by and stop to beg for bread. Ducks too.

It's one of Michigan's cleanest lakes so plan on spending time on and in the water. We have picnic blankets, plenty of beach towels and an assortment of life jackets, air mattresses and water toys. At the end of the day a Weber charcoal grill is ready for the cottage chef.

With 24 hour on-call maintenance you can focus on your vacation. Our cottage has a one stall garage and two outside parking spots.

Our Bostwick Lake cottage is only 20 minutes away from metro Grand Rapids. "Places Rated Almanac" ranked Grand Rapids as the #3 city in the nation for fun and recreation. That’s your backyard!

Or gather the gang and head to the picturesque town of Rockford only 5.5 miles away. Sample home made chocolate treats at Polly's Passions or the tastiest ever Chili Dogs at Red's on the River.

Things To Do

Vacation Time here means plenty of lake time.

You'll have a hard time dragging the kids out of the lake. Our dock arrangement with its L shape is perfect. Only 3 to 4 feet deep with a sandy bottom inside the L swimming couldn't be better.

End of the dock fishing will result in Blue Gills galore.

Or you can also take a quiet row around the lake and catch Trout, Crappie, Blue Gill, Perch, Bass or Pike using our “Aqua Swan”.

If you bring a kayak or canoe you can launch it just steps from our front door - either at the dock or the short seawall.

Nearby is golf, and some of the best paved hiking trails in the area. Take a tube float trip on the scenic Rogue River or try some river fishing: Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Steelhead, Salmon, Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass.

Ever been to a West Michigan beach? Lake Michigan’s crystal clear fresh water stretches as far as the eye can see. Condé Nast Traveler named the Lake Michigan shoreline one of the 25 best in the world.

Saugatuck and Grand Haven located on the shores of Lake Michigan are two side by side towns that have plenty of eclectic shopping available. If you go start out early and make a day of it!

About the Owner/Manager

I pretty much grew up here under the eagle eyes of my grandpa and grandma. Grandma taught me how to water ski and Grandpa showed me how to bait a hook and cast out my line. When my husband and I come to visit the race is on as to who will catch the most fish for our "End-of-the-Visit" fish fry!

My wish for all the families who will be vacationing here is to provide a relaxed and easy environment. Our furnishings are gently used and geared towards families with kids. I want all to feel comfortable but at the same time please respect our property. When it comes time for you to leave the cottage on a Sunday at 10:30am our crew will be able to swoop in and clean. There is a "Helpful Hints" poster on the Kitchen wall. Following these suggestions will be greatly and truly appreciated as we race along getting ready for our next vacationing family arriving at 5:00pm.
