Downtown Pentwater is also just a few minutes from your front door, either by bike or on foot. Many families choose to park the car for awhile and take a short walk to the beach, hiking trails, downtown shops, art galleries and restaurants. If you’re looking to venture further afield, The Channel Lane Inn is a great base for day trips by car to other popular Lake Michigan shoreline activities, like dune rides and fishing.

Whether you’re hitting the beach, going on a shopping spree or devouring the sweets and treats downtown, you’re sure to find pleasure on your next visit to Pentwater, and your next stay at The Channel Lane Inn.
