Pentwater, Michigan is a charming, lakeside village located north of Muskegon, south of Ludington.
With a population of under 1000 permanent residents, this is small town America - a Norman Rockwell painting on Lake Michigan.
Though quiet and quaint, the population of Pentwater swells considerably during the warm summer months as tourists and 2nd homeowners seek a slower pace and time on the beach.

"It was very much like Norman Rockwell: small town America. We walked to school or rode our bikes, stopped at the penny candy store on the way home from school, skated on the pond."
- Dorothy Hamill
