3 Bedroom/3 Bath: Sleeps 8 (Max is strictly 8 humans.)

Formerly “Dune Hill Cottage”. Compass Rose is a favorite vacation rental in Pentwater, with many repeat families every year! Nautical-style cottage 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 a beautiful forest while enjoying the towns of Pentwater and Ludington. Tastefully decorated and updated in our trademark blue and white decor, with a fully equipped kitchen (including dishes, dishwasher, microwave, and coffee maker), breakfast nook, and open living room with electric fireplace, 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.

Compass Rose is equipped with a private bonfire pit, grill, Adirondack chairs and patio furniture, as well as shared horseshoes, sand volleyball court, sandbox, and playhouse with swing set. Central air and heat. Electric Fireplace. Free Wi-Fi. Washer and dryer. Pack n play, diaper changing mat, and highchair. Sorry–we don’t believe in cable at the cottage (too many other things to experience), but we do have Smart TV’s and DVD players.

Note: Compass Rose can be pet friendly (with pre-approval). $150 nonrefundable fee per animal. No puppies/dogs under 1 year of age, no aggressive dogs, and no chewers. Must be house trained.

Note: Cottage DOES NOT have a detached garage available to renters. If you require a garage, please inquire.

Note: We do not allow renters to have another part of their group stay the night at a local campground or other accommodation but use Compass Rose during the day. Our max of 10 people applies to those using the water, kitchen, bathrooms, septic, not just the number of people sleeping at night.

Note: More than one of our cottages may be rented at the same time by larger families/groups, pending availability.
