One Of The Best Views Of The Lake From This Cottage!
About Pam Ritsema
We were born & raised and lived our whole life in Grand Rapids, MI. We have two older son & daughter in law that love to fish, hunt, snowmobile and we all love hanging out at the cottage! We have always loved traveling up north for scenic drives and always wanted to have a cottage up North! Our dream came true when we purchased this cottage in 2015 and could not be any happier with the location & beauty of Harper Lake ! We look forward to making so many special memories in our new cottage!
Pam Ritsema purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Pam Ritsema chose Irons
So close to so many things- great for same day excursions!! Whether it's wine tasting & touring the beautiful surroundings of Traverse City an hour away, Manistee is 1/2 hour, Ludington and Lake Michigan in only 35-40 minutes! We purchased this cottage in 2015 as our dream has always been to have a little piece of paradise up North and we definitely found our gem! We have always loved coming up north, since there is so much to offer between fishing, relaxing, fun in the sun, wineries, hunting, so much to do! We wanted a cottage where we didn't have to climb a lot of steps from the lake to the house, this is so perfect! This cottage has one of the best views of the lake!

Charming Harper Lake
We enjoyed the remoteness of the Harper Lake house. Pam was wonderful !
Beautiful Lake house
Was a quiet, relaxing vacation.
Majestic and exceptional
Everything you see is spot on! Accommodations are stellar. Pontoon fabulous. The lake is quite and quaint perfect for a low key relaxing family vacation. We have two teenagers and they were impressed. Neighboring towns are about 30-45 minute drives with plenty to keep you entertained if you wish. We loved Ludington and the Sleeping Bear Dunes (a must see). Absolutely recommend!
Summer time lake fun.
The cottage is just as described. Kids played in the water on the beach and we had alot of fun on the boat docking out on the lake and swimming. Would definitely recommend this cottage.
Great place to stay! Exactly as listed!
Had a great time spending a week at the Lakehouse. Listing is exactly as described and they are very accommodating. Use of the boat, kayaks, etc and nice beach with fire pit. Would definitely stay again!
We enjoyed taking the pontoon out & anchoring it for a few hours of swimming in the deeper water. We loved the fire pit & screened in porch. The cottage itself was clean & just your home away from home kind of feel. Also recommend Kayaking on the Little Manistee River just a short distance are some launch sites from the cottage.
This is a perfect location to fish the major trout streams nearby: Big and Little Manistee, Pere Marquette, Ausable and Tippy Dam, snowmobile the trails, hunt, take northern Michigan drives- or just enjoy a perfect family vacation on the lake!
Manistee is a short 30 minute drive to Little River Casino, 40 minutes to Ludington only an hour drive to Traverse City!
