Property description

Newly constructed Lake Michigan cottage nestled among old growth trees. Air-conditioned and gas fireplace. Beautiful, peaceful location. Large trees, wildflowers, low-traffic area. Surrounded by farmland. Enjoy a short walk across a private bridge to the 140 feet of sandy beach shared with one other cottage. Walk 70 steps down the stairs to small dunes on the lakefront. Stairway has a shaded large observation deck half way down that has built-in benches - a wonderful spot to enjoy the breezes and view.
Enjoy long beach walks, playing in the waves, building sand castles, or lying quietly on the beach reading your summer novel. Many enjoyable attractions nearby include the Hart - Montague bicycle trail, Silver Lake Sand Dunes, Blue Lake Music Camp, Michigan Adventure Amusement Park and many golf courses. The nearby lakeside towns of Montague and Whitehall offer fun shopping, a farmers' market, and fun eating spots, including an old-fashion soda fountain.


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 119669 on homeaway.com. By itself it sleeps 12 people. If you need a home for more then 12 people please verify that property 119669 is available also.
