Entire cottage on Croton Pond offers beautiful views, fishing and recreation on the Muskegon River. The cottage is just minutes away from tubing, kayaking, hiking & biking trails, and snowmobile fun. After a day of adventure, it's refreshing to return "home" to relax in this cozy & clean cottage. Fire pit, paddleboat & 2 kayaks (in season, shared), picnic table, charcoal grill, wifi, & full kitchen amenities provided. Local area has restaurants, grocery store, and gas station.

The space
Castaways Cottages are located between the Croton and Hardy Dams on the Muskegon River. There are about 10 steps down to the water’s edge. A dock extends into the water and a boardwalk runs the length of the property along the water’s edge with room to moor your boat if you choose to bring one along. While you visit, please feel free to take out the paddleboat and kayaks. You may be given the gift of catching sight of a bald eagle soaring above or a family of ducks or swans gliding along the pond. You’ll feel the cares of life just melt away in the beauty of nature.

The cabin consists of the main living area with a seating area, tv, small eating area, and fully functioning kitchen (see photos). It has one bath and two bedrooms (one with a queen bed, and the other with a bunk bed). We provide clean linens, dinner ware, and basic utensils, pots and pans for cooking. Outside the cabin, under the awning, is a picnic table and a couple Adirondack chairs – a perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee.

The community space is available to all guests. It has a platform that overlooks the water, a wooden swing for relaxing, and campfire pit with bench seating.

Downtown Croton is 2 miles away and has a couple restaurants, gas station, and grocery store. We are about 10 miles away from beautiful Newaygo with more shops, restaurants, and parks. We are minutes away from North Country Trails and the Dragon Trail - popular with both hikers and bikers. Do you want a day at a beach instead? The Hardy Operator’s Village Park is a couple miles away, just east of the Hardy Dam, and offers hours of fun with its sandy beach, playground and picnic areas.

Please be 21 years or older to book with us and be respectful of the cottage, grounds, and other guests. Keep your noise level down after 11pm.

Most importantly, just come to Castaways Cottage to unwind, relax and enjoy the river life!
