The Cottage shares its dune with the DeWitt family's summer home. Both have been there for over one- hundred years. Sixty-six have been in the family. We enjoy sharing our special spot with others - adults, children, dogs, the occasional cat, foxes, deer, raccoons, seagulls, hawks, eagles, hummingbirds...


We would love to share it with you.


  • Four acres of wooded dune and 240 feet of private sandy beach.

  • About  100 steps to that beach. Sounds like a lot, but it builds stamina.

  • A private deck with front row seats of the Lake and beach.

  • A hammock. Paradise in paradise. 

  • A wrap around screened porch with three rockers, a table with chairs, and a sleeping cot.

  • A living room with a double pull-out sofa, two lounge chairs and real books to take with you if you don’t finish them. 

  • Two bedrooms. One is upstairs with two double beds, the other is downstairs with a double bed and a twin bed.  

  • A fully outfitted kitchen with everything you’ll need. It doesn’t have a dishwasher. This is a cottage, not a condo. 

  • A gas grill by the deck.

  • Air-conditioning is the breeze off the lake, and window fans if you need them. The heat is just right for cool nights and the late spring and fall weeks. 

  • There is one bathroom with a tub, and a shower room off the bedroom downstairs. It has access from the beach steps. Perfect for those who insist on rolling in the sand.

  • Technology is supported by free Internet/WiFi/Cable.

  • There is a small flat screened TV, CD player/radio, and a DVD player in the living room.

  • Cell phone reception is poor at best, so plan to use other media. Or, there’s a land line. 

  • One more thing: There is no reception on the beach. None. More paradise in paradise.



Sleeps nine (in a pinch). A great kitchen. A clawfoot tub. Rockers on the porch. Private deck. Best view between Saugatuck and Holland.  And we allow pets (within reason – a horse might not work).  What could possibly be missing?

Oh, yes, it is right on the Big Lake.

THIS is NOT A CONDO.  It is a real cottage (circa  1914), full of color, charm, and history. One of the last of its kind.
