Overview

About the property

Four bedroom, three bath home--great for families.

This house is one half block from a semi-private beach on Lake Michigan. There are four bedrooms, three full baths and bikes. There are two tables for up to 10, one inside and one on the screened in porch. There is an outdoor fire pit and outdoor shower. In addition to indoor and outdoor eating space for up to 10, there are three large common areas for games, conversation or just relaxing. Two of them have wood burning fire places and two of them have large screen t.v.s. Of the three full baths, two are recently updated. There are three bedrooms downstairs. One bedroom has a king sized bed, one is a queen with a futon for extra sleeping and the third has two twin beds. There is a fourth bedroom upstairs with a queen bed and a full sized bed. One of the common areas is upstairs which is great if part of your party needs a quiet place to get away or wants to watch t.v. There is also a full sized futon on a frame in the upstairs common area. There is Wi-Fi through out and also air conditioning, although you will likely not need it, since the house stays cool from the nearby lake breeze. The beach is semi-private, open only to the houses in the immediate area and is never crowded. There is a basketball hoop and there are plenty of basketballs and other toys. There is an outdoor shower and comfortable outdoor furniture. The house is full of windows and you will have plenty of pots, pans, dishes and cookware.

About Owner/Manager

This has been our family summer home for many years. We own it with my parents and they and we have been coming here every summer for 30 years. My grown children also come a lot. However, as my parents have aged and my children are around less, there are many week ends we can't use it. We love to ride bikes in Michigan and swim in the lake.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 1985

Why Owner/Manager chose Southwest Michigan

This is a great area for a long week end getaway or a week of relaxation. The beach is so close and so unused. You can even take your dog down there early or late in the day.

What makes this house unique

This is a great house for families. There is lots of room to spread out both indoors and out. You will also have use of our bicycles which we use frequently.

Perfect for a weekend away with friends!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Mary's home was an absolute delight! I have nothing negative to say about it. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with all the tools you may need. The space was great for a large group (we had 8 people) and it never felt cramped or crowded. Thank you so much to Mary and her family for letting us enjoy your wonderful vacation home!

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for the 2017 Apple Cider Century. We had a blast and enjoyed the spacious accommodations. We would definitely consider coming back the next time we are looking for a weekend away.

Great for Families.

  • 5 of 5

All in our group loved the house, location and its ammenities. Plenty of space to be together; plenty of ways to find some space. The house is almost like three houses in one.

This clearly has been a beloved family retreat for some time. Everything about it met our needs and made us feel at home with family.

The beach was easy 3 minute walking access and a great place for sun and the magnificent lake. While the shady house site was welcome relief. There is a friendly warm feeling among neighbors and other visitors in the beautifully wooded natural area.
