Families taking a vacation to West Michigan enjoy staying at one of the many resorts or cottages found in the area. Most are located on Hamlin Lake, a 5,000 acre inland body of water with warm, calm waters. Resorts can accommodate small to large groups, and most offer kitchens, grills, playgrounds, and swimming facilities. The casual nature of resort lodging makes for a relaxing vacation, and a perfect setting for watching the sun set over the water.
