About the property

Incredible home situated on the point of Lake G

Secluded, serene, luxurious... this cottage has it all. Comfortably sleeps 14. Newly updated, you will enjoy a vacation of comfort. This cottage is surrounded by 800' of water front.  You will have only one other cottage in view while taking in the incredible view of the great outdoors through the floor to ceiling windows. This home's private dock is available for renter's use. This is a great location for swimming. Being an inland lake, Lake G is usually 10* warmer than Lake Michigan. There is nice sandy waterfront at the edge of the lawn. Less than a mile away is Cables Creek Preserve, with hiking trails, dunes and sandy beach on Lake Michigan. Lake Geneserath is know to be the best fishing spot on the island's inland lakes. Hundreds of acres of state land are across the lake facing this cottage. We hope you are able to come and experience the peace and solitude that this 3,000 square foot home offers.

This property is incredible! Gorgeous gorgeous views from inside and from the wrap around porch. You can look out 240 degrees and see no signs of humanity as the house is at the end of a peninsula. The beach was ideal for kids (shallow, sandy and much warmer than lake Michigan) and the breeze off the lake keeps the temperatures cooler and keeps the bugs (mostly) away. The house was perfect for our group of 9 (4 adults, 5 kids). It was our first time to beaver island and we found lake G to be ideal, with the only drawback the 20-25min ride to town (with better planning we could have eliminated a few back and forth trips for food). If you are looking for an off-the grid / away from it all retreat, this is the place for you. Sheri Richards was awesome, very accommodating with our questions, suggestions etc. Check-in was a breeze. Hope to be back again in the future.
