Property description

Cozy Eagles Nest Cottage - Your little gem! A 5-minute walk to Pere Marquette Lake Michigan beach, the Shoreline Trail, and only 1 block to Muskegon Lake in popular Bluffton neighborhood in the City of Muskegon, fishing, and festivals (in back of #122785.) Park in the shared driveway, take the short sidewalk, and go up 12 stairs up to Eagles Nest where it's private). At the top of the stairs the wooded forest, large dune patio, fire pit, BBQ grill, real Adirondack chairs, outdoor table, and the little cottage will delight you.

Eagles Nest is a favorite for small families of up to 2 young children who can use the Queen sleeper sofa, honeymooners, anniversary celebrations, and romantic nature getaways.

Private and quiet except for soothing Lake Michigan waves on a windy day. No houses to the north, east, or west means you have a private, shaded dune patio, from which you'll enjoy a lovely 180 degree view of the wooded forest and clean beach sand. Park your vehicle in the left lane of the shared double driveway, viewable from the cottage door.

Smoke-free, pet-free. You'll love this adorable Muskegon MI vacation rental cottage 3 blocks to Lake Michigan, 1 block to Muskegon Lake, and 5-15 minutes to town and activities. Queen bed, Queen sleeper sofa, linens, furnished galley kitchen, cooking and serving ware. 42' TV, WIFI, compact bathroom (shower, no tub). The cottage is tucked away on a sand dune with a private yard with BBQ grill, outdoor seating, table, and fire pit. Parking is shared with main cottage on street level. Your guest cottage is delightfully designer-decorated and is a great alternative to a more expensive hotel suite. 12 steps up to cottage on a dune. Minutes to beach (0.3 mile/ 0.5 km) and close to festivals, malls, Muskegon Lake. Michigan's Adventure and Waterpark 28 min.(13 miles). Sleeps 4. No view of lake or beach. No dishwasher or washer/dryer.

NATURAL, PEACEFUL PATIO AREA: Small backyard has everything you want to enjoy yourself outdoors:
Fire Pit and Adirondack chairs. BBQ propane grill. Table and chairs for outside eating or snacks. - You will work up an appetite with the fresh lake air!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Native of Muskegon and resident of other states and countries, Jane knows the hidden gems of Muskegon and Western Michigan and appreciates the people and customs of other states and countries. Jane's interests are many -- past President of Muskegon County Genealogical Society, professional family history researcher, violinist here and abroad, retired social worker, and former college adjunct teacher. She lives only 20 minutes away and is 'on-call' during your stay.

Why the Owner Chose Muskegon:
In historic Bluffton neighborhood, the best location in the City of Muskegon, sandwiched on a narrow peninsula between Lake Michigan beach and Muskegon Lake. Eagles Nest cottage is the only rental cottage on famous Pigeon Hill, where neighbor children play on the huge dunes and pigeons roosted. Although it's only 12 stair steps from street level, no one else lives up there, and even the air seems different -- fresh, and on a windy day you can hear Lake Michigan waves. Miles of forest dune is the view north, and it's all yours while you are there. Eagles Nest has the best of both worlds--away from it all on the dune, and just 12 steps down, you have access to all fun, beaches, highways, necessities, and quick trips to other beach towns.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Shady patio 2 is on a forested dune where you have privacy and feel like you are living in nature yet can see your parked car below. Just 12 steps down where your car is parked is the friendly neighborhood, so you have the best of both worlds--living in nature and conveniences of the city. Furniture chosen by award-winning designer for comfort and charm.
