Reviews

A great Memorial Day Weekend. The cottage is everything it is advertised to be. Clean and comfortable with beautiful views. The owner is easy to work with and very helpful.The water was awesome. We relaxed on the dock, kayaked, swam. We watched fisherman reel in nice sized fish right off shore. Dinner in Ludington and a nice Lake Mi beach completed a great weekend. We're taking the whole family back later this summer. --- Erag, May 2012

About the Owner/Manager

Kelly and Ken Crocker have owned and run their 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 across the road. The cottage is 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, WIFI and firewood. A private beach areas and 7 non-motorized boats for each cottage. There are 4 bikes and a tandem bike the cottages share for a ride around the lake.

Please feel free to call me at 616-402-8836 with any questions you have. After 39 years of renting I have heard every question you can think of. Please ask if you are interested.
