in acres of woods, close to Pentwater Village, Lake Michigan,
3 Bedrooms/3 Baths. Sleeps 8. Central Air. Screened-in porch.
Formerly Dune Hill Cottage, now renamed the Compass Rose.
A favorite rental in Pentwater, with many repeat families
every year! Nautical-style cottage very privately nestled
in the wooded dunes and wild blueberry bushes along Lake
Michigan, and yet only 1 mile from the center of Pentwater
or a 15-minute drive to Ludington. The best of both worlds!
Bask in the seclusion of beautiful forests while enjoying
the towns of Pentwater or Ludington. In Pentwater--enjoy
the family-friendly Mears State Beach (one of the best Lake
Michigan beaches you’ll EVER experience), stroll on
the pier, drop a boat in the marina, grab a bite to eat,
or shop at the boutique stores. The cottage is also a .3
mile walk down the street to AJ’s Family Fun Center
(go carts, miniature golf, ice cream, and arcade) or public
tennis courts. There is wine tasting, maple syrup, jam,
honey farms, and a fish ladder where you can catch and/or
eat your catch, minutes down the road. Tastefully decorated
and updated, with a fully equipped kitchen (including dishes,
dishwasher, microwave, and coffee maker), breakfast nook,
and open living room, as well as washing machine and dryer.
Wood floors throughout. There is a large screened-in, furnished
porch in front and a private sun deck in back. There are
3 bedrooms and 3 full baths--one with a claw foot bathtub.
Main floor bedroom has private bath with king size bed and
private patio. Upstairs bedrooms share a hall bathroom.
One bedroom has a queen bed and the other bedroom has a
queen and two twins. Sleeps 8 comfortably. The cottage is

and patio furniture, as well as shared horseshoes, sand
volleyball court, sandbox, and playhouse with swing set.
