4 Bedroom/2 Bath: Sleeps 1-10 (Max is strictly 10 humans of any age.)

Acorn Abbey is our family-friendly, A-Frame cottage nestled in the peaceful, forested dunes on the northwest side of Bass Lake in Pentwater between Lake Michigan and Bass Lake. (Near to both Lake MI and Bass Lake, not ON either one.) It is our most private cottage. Acorn Abbey is 4 miles from the village of Pentwater or a 15-minute drive to Ludington. Relax in the woods, or enjoy the towns of Pentwater and Ludington. Acorn Abbey is decorated in our trademark blue and white cottage decor with wood floors throughout. Pieces of art in every room have been chosen to remind you of special, local places. Fully equipped, updated kitchen and large open living/ dining room with fireplace. There is a wide deck overlooking trees on the upper portion of the cottage. Acorn Abbey has 4 bedrooms and 2 full, updated baths–both with bathtubs and showers. Main floor has two bedrooms, with queen beds, a shared hall bathroom, and a family den with a twin/twin bunkbed. The main floor is handicapped accessible. Upstairs is the open kitchen, dining, living room, along with the master with queen, another bedroom with twin/twin bunkbeds, and a shared hall bathroom. See Amenities for more!

Sheets and towels ARE provided (including beach towels).  We ask that renters wash and put them away before checking out.  Or, you are welcome to bring your own. (Pillows and comforters are also provided.) We do have someone in town that will wash your sheets and towels at the end of your stay for a fee–MUST be scheduled ahead of time.

Acorn Abbey DOES have a garage available to renters. If you require a garage, please inquire via email.

Acorn Abbey, Compass Rose, and Hazelnut Haus may be rented at the same time by larger families/groups, pending availability.

For an additional fee, Acorn Abbey does have a place on site for an RV to plug in.  Please inquire via email.
