A perfect getaway
This place is just what the doctor ordered for a vacation getaway. It has everything...close location to a world class beach...all the amenities for a relaxing stay (i.e. fire pit, gas grill, seclusion, DVDs, flat panel TV, stereo...it even had a set of binoculars). We found the cottage well maintained and clean on arrival. The kitchen has all newer appliances. My wife was a little disappointed by the fact that we believed the kitchen would contain a Keurig coffee maker (we brought the individualized cups), but it turned out the kitchen supplied a conventional coffee maker. Each bedroom has an individual window AC unit (which is a total necessity for the warm and humid nights). It's about a 200 yard walk to the sugar sand beaches of Pere-Marquette Park where a person can walk along sandy beaches for miles. My only criticisms would be that a stocked first aid kit needs to be supplied and the cable service (for the TV) is pretty lame (few channels). However the cottage is supplied with a wealth of games and DVD movies. If you enjoy cycling, you're going to love this place. You can take the lakeshore trail around Muskegon Lake to Muskegon State park and back (about 35 mile round trip) or make your way over to Musketawa Trail which can be ridden from Muskegon all the way to Grand rapids on a 12' wide paved pathway. The place has everything a vacationer could ask for...clean, efficient, close location to the beach, easy access to biking (or walking), miles of sandy beach, the list is virtually endless. We had a wonderful time with this rental. My wife and I have been renting vacation homes in the Muskegon area since 2011 and this one by far was the best we've rented. We give it a "two-thumbs-up" endorsement.
