Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Our spacious summer cottage (White Pines Lake Michigan Cottage) sits on a wooded dune with unobstructed views and private property access to Lake Michigan. The large front yard leads to a footbridge and beach path over two long dunes winding down to our private Lake Michigan beachfront. The path, bridge and steps to the beach are well maintained and easy to navigate. The environment is peaceful and relaxing with private sandy beach. We take pride in ensuring a high quality experience for our guests and look for renters who will treat the cottage as their home. (Pictures of our beach from May 2020 can be seen in Photos)
There are three bedrooms that can accommodate a total of 8 people. Bedroom 1 has a king bed, Bedroom 2 has a queen bed and Bedroom 3 has a king and two twins. There are two full baths, one with a tub & shower, and the 2nd one with shower. That one has a washer/dryer for your use.
You can enjoy views of Lake Michigan and breathtaking sunsets from the large deck and/or the outdoor fire pit. Relax on the clean, sandy beach, golf, bike, fish, kayak, or walk the shoreline for miles.
For golfers, a great public lakefront golf course is just 2 miles up the road. For bicyclists, the Hart-Montague bike trail is minutes away. Kayaking and all forms of boating available. If you enjoy sightseeing, you can find interesting lakefront attractions and resort towns within a short drive!
The cottage has comfortable, inviting furnishings throughout and high quality bed linens and comforters on all beds. Two screened porches – one with wicker furniture and an antique harvest table which is great for family dinners or games. On cool nights, you can enjoy the wonderful wood-burning fireplace – some wood is provided for your convenience. We also now have full AC (June 2020)!
The beach is very sandy with very few rocks and usually a gentle sloping drop off into the water. Beach walks are a favorite past time as you can walk for miles. Responsible beach fires are allowed.

We enjoyed 10 quiet and isolated nights in early October at the property with lovely sunsets viewed from the deck. The cottage and its kitchen are nicely equipped. We would stay again and come back with friends. 3 couples could comfortably stay here. Our only wish would be to have the piano tuned. The town of Montague and adjoining Whitehall are lovely, and there are state parks to explore in the area.
Lovely Lake House

Wonderful, relaxing stay! My wife, our dog, and I enjoyed a long weekend at this lovely lake house. We felt welcome from the moment we stepped in the house with music playing and a bottle of wine waiting. The lake house was very accommodating for guests. With a short walk to the beach, we enjoyed morning and evening walks along the coast of Lake Michigan. The evening sunsets were breathtaking! The house was also a short drive from downtown Montague and beautiful parks. I would absolutely recommend this place for anyone looking for a relaxing, delightful vacation. Thank you for the memories!
Fabulous Family Getaway

Great cottage and beautiful views. The hike to the beach was about 7 min. The beach is almost a mile long with both ends available to the public. This cottage was in the middle, so you basically had the beach to yourselves. For anyone with physical concerns getting to the beach, you can always drive to the end of the rd and enter at the public entrance. There is a croquet set & bat mitten which my family played every day. I didn’t notice a net, but we made something up. They do have wood for the fire, but we did bring our own ax to split some wood. Super nice weber grill. It was a great stay and we plan to come back next summer.
