General Information
We are located on over 4 acres, with approximately 2,000 feet of shoreline, on beautiful
Ackley Lake - a short drive (or fun canoe paddle with the canoe we provide) from the town of
Paw Paw - southwest Michigan's quaint winery town.  Our cottages are nestled at the end of a
peninsula (see area circled on photo) on Ackley Lake.  Our southwest Michigan lake front,
two-bedroom rental cabins are located in a beautiful, tranquil setting.  Each cabin has it's own
frontage on Ackley Lake. Each rental cottage/cabin is fully equipped including linens,
complete kitchen (see list on 'miscellaneous' link for complete list of what is included in each
cabin), fire pit, and more.  A row boat and canoe is included with each cottage.  Plenty of
shade and sun and room to roam.  In this site you will find cottage descriptions, rental fees,
directions and links to places of interest and things to do while you enjoy your stay in your
lake front cottage in Southwest Michigan.  Come on in and look at  photos of the cottages and
the beautiful lake front property as you visit the different pages in this site.
Welcome to Hidden Peninsula's website where you can find information
describing our three modern, lakefront rental cottages on Ackley Lake in
beautiful Paw Paw, located in the heart of wine country in southwest
Our recently built and/or remodeled cottages on over 4 acres with over 1,000 feet of
shoreline are conveniently located midway between Chicago and Detroit.  Approximately 20
miles west of Kalamazoo.  

In addition to weekly family rentals, we are a great alternative to bed and breakfast or
"hotel/motel lodging" when visiting
Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo College,
Kalamazoo Valley Community College and Davenport University, or any other Paw Paw or
Kalamazoo entertainment.  Paw Paw is full of great restaurants and lots of fast food
restaurants.  Take in a movie at
The Strand Theatre in downtown Paw Paw.  Stop by the
Chamber of Commerce and pick up a brochure to take the self guided tour of historic
homes.  Don't forget to see the
Air Zoo (museum) in Kalamazoo too!  Why not get tickets to
a premier show at
Miller Auditorium, or a Western Michigan Football or WMU Basketball
game (about a 20 minute drive) and return to your lakefront cabin for the week or
weekend?  Paw Paw is conveniently located to several premier golf courses in southwest
Michigan.  A little over an hour's drive south, you'll find the Amish villages of Middlebury and
Shipshewanna (a wonderful way to spend a day).  Traveling west approximately 30 miles
will take you to the beaches of Lake Michigan in St. Joseph and South Haven (another fun
day or evening trip).  Return back to your cottage on the lake for an afternoon of swimming,
boating, fishing and a cookout followed by a peaceful, quiet evening around your campfire.

Ackley Lake is a  quiet, mid-sized all-sports lake approximately 65 acres.  It is connected to
Maple Lake (approximately 200 acres), also an all-sports lake, via a 9' tunnel under M-40.
Canoe from our cottages right into the town of Paw Paw or visit the lovely town park on an
island in Maple Lake.  Perhaps you'd like to fish at the dam where the Paw Paw River flows
to Lake Michigan or just kick back and relax by your lakefront cottage.
