Welcome to Fernwood!

Even though it will never make the pages of Architectural Digest Fernwood is our most popular rental!  It’s a big old rambling place with mis-matched furniture but the natural views are extraordinary. It offers 9 acres of privacy with over 300 feet of perfect white sand beach. It sleeps up to 14, with three full baths. Fernwood is located between the beach towns of Pentwater and the Dunes at Silver Lake. Fernwood is rented by many family groups year after year, so there is limited availability in the prime season. Call for available dates. No smoking.

Fifteen Years!

We have rented this Lake Michigan cottage from Ken and Sharon for 15+ years. The house is large. There is a back deck that is great for dinners. 4 bedrooms and 3 open space areas provides plenty of room for our large group. There is a ridge that looks through the trees. This is the perfect spot for sun sets if you choose not to take the trail down to the beach. 300 feet of private beach front gives us plenty of space for volleyball, horse shoes or any other beach activities you can think of. This spot is ideal for swimming with a long knee deep stretch and a second sand bar that is a short distance off shore. Silver Lake is 10 minutes south and Pentwater is 20 minutes north. Dune scooters and shopping at your fingertips.

Thanks Sharon and Ken for taking us in for all these years. Submitted: May 4, 2016 Stayed: May 2016 Source: HomeAway

Great cottage on Lake Michigan!

We have stayed at this cottage for a number of years and always have a great time. Lots of room for a big family, very private, and the owners are great people. Nothing fancy but a very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Park-like setting around the house and a lovely walkway down to the large beach right on Lake Michigan. We’re going back again this year.
