Fall Splendor
We really enjoyed the lake property. It is front and center for the beautiful sunsets over the lake. The loons entertained us daily. We especially enjoyed the vivid colors of the leaves...SPECTACULAR!! It was PEAK foliage color!! Quite a sight to see! The cottage was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and will return! It was peaceful splendor!

Janet, isn't fall in the UP magnificent!  We are so happy that your stay at Pentoga Place met your expectations.  The loons are so wonderful.  We do hope that you come back again.

Beautiful Lake and Area
whole area was beautiful. Had a great time fishing, catching a lot of smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, panfish, and a few northern pike. The cabin was very nice. The beds were very comfortable and all the rooms were cozy. The decoration made it feel like a nice cabin away from home. The rowboat was a nice thing to have for the lake, since we didn't have a boat to bring with us. The lake itself was very clear and didn't seem to be too many people on it, which made it nice since it wasn't crowded. Only saw a few boats on it the entire weekend. Overall we were extremely happy with our stay. I would definitely recommend it to anybody looking for a nice trip. We are looking forward to our next visit in the future.


Scott, thank you for this wonderful review.  You really capture Pentoga Place.  We are so happy that it fit your needs so well, and we look forward to seeing you again!

Great getaway
My 2 grand-girls and I spent three nights at this beautiful place. We have been coming to this area for the past 14 years, grandparents, grandchildren week. We have only missed two vacations, one due to the oldest grandchild going thru chemo, and then papa dying. When the youngest suggested we go back to our normal place, we just couldn't . This place reminded us of home and was a good place to stay and have a great time. We found this wonderful place that I am hoping to come back to again, and again.

Sue, we are so happy that you found Freshwater Vacation Rentals, and especially Pentoga Place.  It sounds like you have years of good memories in the Crystal Falls area, so we are glad to be a part of another year.  We look forward to having you and your family back for many years to come.
