The lake was beautiful. We loved the canoeing and paddleboat. The bathroom left a lot to be desired. Make sure you ask about the toilet and the smell!

The canoe and peddle boat are always favorites our renters. I am glad you were able to enjoy them.

As with all new renters I carefully explain the simple use of the toilet. It is very easy to use and is very environmentally friendly. If you actually listen to the instructions, there should be no problems with the toilet.

“Peaceful cottage retreat on the lake with beautiful sunset views”

Loved watching the slow lingering sunsets over the lake,and the swans swimming by in the evening. Loved hearing the sand crane's serenade.. Close enough for day trips to Gilmore Car Museum at Hickory Corners and Saugetuck but far enough from tourism to kick back and relax in a natural setting with my home prepared meal at the cottage since my husband was on a special diet. .
Didn't care for the noisy construction next door from 9 AM on weekdays or the incinerator toliet but since we came in our van camper, we used our own portable thetford marine toliet so no problem.
Overall, it was a peaceful and relaxing retreat.

I am glad you enjoyed your time at the cottage including seeing the various birds and wildlife that inhabit the lake, and took advantage of surrounding points of interest.

As with all new renters I carefully explain the simple use of the toilet. It is very easy to use and is very environmentally friendly. The issue this couple had with the toilet was with the fan which runs as the toilet is cycling. The fan is isolated and is very quiet.

Donna,

It was nice see you and your family again. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. And your right, the county park next door is so handy for friends and family get-to-gathers. I hope to see you again.

“Good time in cozy cottage on the lake”
Reviewed July 29, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We enjoyed using the paddle boat, discovered treasures in the neighborhood ( Oval Beach and the Dutch Village), about 30 min away, and watched Veggie Tales movies when it rained outside :) We had a great time!

“The beauty and the quiet made for a great week!”
Reviewed October 11, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

If you are looking for a place to get away and enjoy the peace and quiet of the country, this is it. No wi-fi, or internet acess, few tv stations, but nature more than makes up for them. In fact, their absence was really an asset! Two adults are just right, but one will have to sleep in a bunk bed. Kitchen facilities are very good.

The cottage was clean, cozy and had everything you would possibly need. The weather was hot but you could cool off at the beach which was walking distance from the cottage. The lake was clean and the fishing was great in the boat and off the pier. Sightseeing on the lake was fun in the petal boat. The town of Allegan was small but had very nice shops and antique stores. The people in town were very nice and friendly. We enjoyed it immensely!
Also, Bruce was very friendly and helpful in showing us around.
If you want a quiet getaway, this location is a very nice place to go.
