Welcome to The Channel Lane Inn!
We are the Myaard family – Mike, Lisa, Tena and Joe. In 2008, we acquired The Channel Lane Inn – a classic motel located in Pentwater, Michigan. Our mission is to create and maintain the personal approach and friendly atmosphere of a family-run business, while keeping the value of a professionally-run motel. Because we are permanent residents of Pentwater, our family is working to keep The Channel Lane Inn open year-round for the convenience of our guests.
You can experience the serene life whenever you want, just by visiting The Channel Lane Inn and Pentwater, Michigan. The prime location near Lake Michigan and the pier provides a beautiful scenic, quiet atmosphere. The panoramic view of the lake and local Pentwater activities can provide you with a rejuvenating weekend or a relaxing, more extended vacation.
Just a short walk from The Channel Lane Inn is the pristine Charles Mears State Park. The gorgeous beach vista will inspire your imagination, creativity and sense of peace.
Pentwater is nestled in the lovely dune country on Michigan’s western coast. Our uniquely convenient and serene location will keep you in touch with one of the finest outdoor recreation areas in the country. We are open all year but subject to closure during extremely slow periods. Our goal is to provide travelers and vacationers with accommodations that focus on comfort and relaxation. It is advisable to make reservations in advance if possible.
Located across the street from the channel walkway, it’s just a 200 yard walk to Charles Mears State Park and Lake Michigan to enjoy beach activities or a beautiful sunset. Downtown Pentwater is just a few minutes from our front door, either by bike or on foot. Though our motel is a great base for day trips by car to Lake Michigan shoreline activities – including dune rides and fishing – many families choose to just park the car for awhile and take the short strolls to the beach, hiking trails, downtown shops, art galleries and restaurants!
We wish you a great day, and can’t wait to see you on your next visit to Pentwater, and your next stay at The Channel Lane Inn!
Mike, Lisa, Tena and Joe
