                      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 footsteps from cabin 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. Free kayaks - 1 child, 1 adult - open, flat, for water fun.
