The setting for our community has been
described by many as “a little piece of heaven”, located on the shores of
beautiful Lake Michigan, and blessed with sandy beaches second to none.
Wooded sand dunes stretch from north to south along the township shoreline,
providing some of nature’s perfect habitat for white tailed deer, fox,
coyote, porcupine, squirrel and occasionally black bear have been sighted.
Pentwater’s livelihood has a varied
history starting with the earliest days as a lumbering community. When the
timber ran out, furniture factories, brick factories, and commercial fishing
sprang up. In 1867 the Village of Pentwater was founded and quickly became
the hub of the community, located on the easterly shores of Pentwater Lake.
The early part of the 20th century saw Pentwater becoming a
vacation/resort community, which is how it is today.
Located on the shores of Lake Michigan
and a short walk to the downtown shopping area, we are blessed with a State
Park that is one of the most sought after camping areas in the state. The
Park was a gift to the State of Michigan from the Charles Mears family, and
early lumbering pioneer family.
have never visited Pentwater, give us a try and you too will call it “a
little piece of heaven” and will want to join our growing community.
