While in Pentwater…

Pentwater is one of the most charming villages in Michigan, and friendly merchants are happy to welcome you into their shops. Here you’ll find a wonderful variety of gift ideas for you or someone special. You can spend hours browsing these shops, or the numerous art galleries throughout town. Take a break and enjoy lunch or dinner at one of Pentwater’s restaurants. Some offer outside dining that overlooks Pentwater Lake. Or treat yourself to an ice cream cone and sit in the Village Green…sun or shade, there’s a place for you!
