A Great Place to Live, Work, Raise a Family
The Village of Pentwater is a quintessential old-fashioned community on the shores of Lake Michigan’s clear waters and sugar-fine sandy beaches. The area surrounds a 500-acre inland lake. Rows of downtown businesses offer an eclectic mix of shops, places to eat, and a Village Green that’s a centerpiece for many fun events year-round, with weekly band concerts in the summer.
Pentwater is a great place to make your home and thrive in every season. It’s easy to make new, deep and lasting friendships within our “village family.”
Some of the latest newcomers are professionals who’ve found Pentwater to be the perfect place from which to telecommute. Others have chosen Pentwater for their retirement home. Indeed, the Village of Pentwater is a great place to live and age well for everyone.

Historic Pentwater: Vibrant and Growing, Then and Now
For more than 150 years, the Village of Pentwater has supplied a variety of natural commodities to communities around the Great Lakes. The area is rich in farming, fishing, and tourism and provides respite from the hectic life of the big cities in the Midwest.
Pentwater lies at the outlet of the Pentwater River, nestled between Pentwater Lake and the Lake Michigan shore.
The Pentwater Historical Society, founded in 1982, was created to remind visitors and residents of the history and heritage of Pentwater and the role that the natural areas surrounding it played in evolvement of our community's heritage. Learn more about the history of Pentwater.
