Property description

Relax in a warmly and attractively remodeled air conditioned cottage with a large deck on Lake Michigan. Great kitchen to work and visit in while preparing meals. Open to a comfortable great room. New, high quality beds. Located in a quiet country setting - Lake Michigan to the west, and farmland to the east. Beautiful lot includes numerous wild flowers and some old-growth forest. Cross a wild ravine over a wooden foot-bridge to a breathtaking view of the Lake. The well-built stairway with 70 steps to the beach includes a large observation deck half way down with benches built in. Wonderful spot to enjoy sunsets over the lake through the trees, or curl up and read your vacation novel. Sandy beach offers relaxing sunbathing, opportunity to play in the waves, or long, peaceful shoreline walks. Stairway and 140 feet of beach frontage are shared with one other cottage. Charter fishing on Lake Michigan at nearby ports. Great fruits/veggies in area farms in season. Go berry picking!


This is our retirement home.: We look for renters who treat the cottage as their home.

Property will sleep 18 when rented in conjunction with property 129426 on homeaway. By itself it sleeps 6 people. If you need a home for more then 6 people please verify that property 129426 is available also.
