Property description

A delightful summer family cottage on a large lot with 105' of private sandy beach. The house is fully furnished on two levels, and has a full length 3 season front porch. Two decks including one off the master bedroom and a huge wrap-around porch. Features a six person hot tub in a cedar gazebo and beachfront tree fort for the kids and tire swing! You will also enjoy our beachfront deck that comes with a fire pit. The kitchen was increased in size last season with new countertops and the addition of a dishwasher. screened in the upstairs balacony.

Over this winter we have finished an apartment over the garage providing an additional bedroom and bath. The apartment has its own lake view balacony and provides privacy for a couple staying with a famiy in the main house.

We are located within The Manistee National Forest: The cottage is located in the Manistee National Forest and on our lake over half of the lake frontage is undeveloped Federal land. There are hundreds of miles of ATV, hiking, and cross country biking trails from the front door of the cottage.

Michigan's Adventure : The states largest amusement and water park is 10 minutes away. Now owned by Cedar Point, the park features many roller coasters and water rides. Great fun!

Lake Michigan Access: Its a 20 minute ride to Lake Michigan beaches at either Muskegon or Duck Lake State Park. Both Muskegon and Whitehall have large, free public beaches, breakwalls hike on and lighthouses to tour. The resort towns of Grand Haven, Pentwater, and Silver beach are a short drive.

The apartment is ideal for a family vacationing with parents or another couple. It provides some privacy and seperation with an additionla bath, kitchen, bedroom, lkiving area, and balacony. The apartment is fully furnished and finished in an 'up north' hunting lodge style, lots of knotty pine, log beds, hickory kitchen cabinets, etc. Photos will be posted as we complete construction this spring. Please be aware that there is a flight of stairs required to gain entry.
