Lake Michigan Cottage is a cozy vacation home presiding over 1,600 feet of sandy beach front. The home features a wraparound deck that looks out from between the trees on three sides. The deck is furnished with outdoor table and lounge sets, perfect for dining al-fresco, reading a book beneath the leaves, or napping to the sound of the waves.
This home is fully supplied with towels and linens, as well as any cookware, place setting or utensils you might need. The fully equipped, modern kitchen contains all the necessary appliances, while the dining room can comfortably accommodate ten people around the family-style board table. Guests have access to laundry facilities and off-street parking, as well as wireless internet, satellite TV and a collection of well-loved books. In the yard, guests can enjoy a brand-new fire pit and a set of park benches overlooking the water.
Sleeping arrangements: Lake Michigan Cottage features two private bedrooms with a queen-sized bed in each. There are also queen-sized sofa beds in the living areas.
Lake Michigan Cottage has been our family’s getaway for years and has always delivered that true “away from it all” feeling as soon as you drive into the area. However, it is only a short drive to conveniences such as banks and grocery stores, as well as all of the attractions of downtown Muskegon.
Our cottage is one of 13 picturesque residences in the area, with a shared private beach between them. The swimming area features a gentle grade, making it ideal for wading or for younger children to test the waters. The beach measures just 300 feet from the cottage door.
The western Lake Michigan shoreline is a beautiful backdrop for a family vacation, with an unmatched natural beauty that inspires photographers and casual sight-seers alike. Take a scenic drive along the winding roads and stop at a vantage point for a picnic or take a walk along the water. Be sure to bring your bucket so you can comb the beach for shells and polished stones!
Lake Michigan itself is large and clear, great for swimming, fishing and boating. As an all-sports lake, it attracts a following of adventurous tourists, from wind-surfers and kite-boarders to sailors and water-tubers. It is also an excellent place to hire a charter boat and cast a line into the depths. In Muskegon’s downtown area, visitors will find plenty to amuse, including the USS Silversides Submarine Museum, the Muskegon Museum of Art, Michigan Adventure Water/Amusement Park, parks and playgrounds, restaurants and theater. You’ll love the lakefront marinas and boardwalks, with the Lakeshore Bike Trail, the cruise dinner dances and the SS Milwaukee Clipper Ferry.
Visitors can hike the dunes at P.J. Hoffmaster State Park or view the lighthouse at Pier Marquette Park. Plan ahead to make sure your trip coincides with a local festival at Heritage Landing!

Absolutely amazing! Kids loved it! Dog was in her glory! The views and wild life was what our family needed for our special weekend in Muskegon, steps away from my favorite place, Lake Michigan!! My family will be back!! Andrea & David
There aren't many places where you have your very own beach, but that is exactly what you get here and it made for a weekend we wont soon forget. The cottage itself works, nothing to write home about, but the beautiful nature surrounding you and the private beach more than make up for any other shortcomings. Clean, easy to find and park and a very smooth process. Very much hope to be back in the future. Brian C
Perfect location for the perfect vacation with friends. Short distance to beautiful lake Michigan. Clean house with many amenities. Feel like another home to us. Will definitely come back to this gem. Nam V
My family and I had an awesome time at this wonderful, secluded cottage. We were looking for a place to unwind and have an outdoorsy type of vacation. This property delivered. The cottage is very spacious, yet extremely cozy. My 12-year-old daughter loved sleeping up in the loft and having her own bathroom. There is a newer deck in front that was perfect for a peaceful morning cup of coffee. The back patio was great for grilling out and playing paddleball. We were able to bring our two dogs, which was a huge bonus, and there was plenty of wildlife (deer, turkeys, squirrels) to see on our morning walks. We all loved the private beach and the view of the lake from atop the dune. For excursions, we walked the trails at Muskegon State Park and even tried our hand at kayaking on the Muskegon River. The town of Muskegon has its own charm including a really good farmers market. I definitely recommend going to The Cheese Lady for some fantastic cheese and variety of Olive Oils and Vinegars. The owners are very nice and easy to deal with and it’s easy to see that they take pride in their family-owned cottage. We look forward to vacationing here again someday. Bryan D
Our Family has been staying at this quiet, woodsy, cottage for the past 10 plus years. It's a cottage that offers the best of Lk. Michigan beaches and a great place for family gatherings. Your choice of quiet reading on the deck or a walk on the beach. Shopping is not far, for the restless. There are always festivals or celebrations going on or in one of the neighboring towns. I can't say enough about this place. We have so many memories of great meals, games we played on the table in the dining room, or fabulous bon fires on the beach. We have even had great rain days doing nothing. We will be back for another ten years. No problem! Patsy K
I would recommend this property as the beach is breathtaking and private!! So much fun to have a campfire right at the water. The pictures of the property are accurate and it was very clean and well stocked. Thank you for letting our dogs come along. Judy P
I was very impressed with the house. It was comfortable, clean and extremely well stocked. The owner has taken excellent care of the property. I stayed two weeks, and it began to feel like home. The back porch is nice and cool in the woods, and access to the beach is pretty easy. It was very relaxing. The owner was easy to reach whenever a question came up. I enjoyed my stay very much and hope to be back. Lizabeth M
The house is very nice and well stocked. There's plenty of space for 2 family's. Lots of out door seating to have visitors as well. The deck is very nice as well. You can't watch the kids from the house because it's on a hill and in the woods but I like being on the beach so it's not an issue. Having all the bath towels and bed sheets as well as a washer and dry meant we didn't have to pack much either. The public beach is just up the street if you like as well. I like to run and there's a nice 1.6 mile loop that goes through the woods and on the beach. Very nice. Carol who manages the place is very nice and easy to deal with. We had a great stay and plan on going back next year. Kyle D
Western Lake Michigan Shoreline is one of the best kept secrets . Its natural beauty is unmatched . Yet there is much to do. Festivals and Art fairs aplenty. Museums downtown, Waterpark /Amusement Park within a 20 minute drive. It's also a Charter fishing, windsurfing, and kiteboarders paradise. The Pier Marquette pier with its boardwalk, bike path and miles of beach is within minutes of our cottage.

Our family grew up in the Muskegon area. But, as families grow up, they often move apart — our cottage has become a regular family meeting place in the summer and an important part of our family heritage. Since we return to the cottage every year, we are constantly working to keep it clean and comfortable. We enjoy sharing this special place and its unique setting with others.
