Property description


Follow the winding driveway up the hilly ridge and you will find peace and serenity at this quaint Lakeshore Drive home hidden within 2.5 wooded acres with great inside and outside living spaces. You can relax on the deck or take a stroll on the Lake Michigan shoreline which is a 5 minute walk away. Or simply relax indoors as you take in the beautiful wooded views from every room.

This remodeled 2 bed/2 bath home has one bedroom/one bathroom on the main level and a second bedroom/bathroom on the lower level. Each bedroom features a queen bed and a wall of windows to bring plenty of sunlight and nature in. A cozy upper loft has a twin sleeper as well as a window seat ideal for napping or reading a book. The open kitchen/dining/living room area on the main level is surrounded by windows. The dining area has a sliding door wall that opens to a two level deck which features plenty of built-in seating as well as two tables with chairs ideal for outdoor dining/relaxing. The gas grill is easily accessible, as is a fire pit (with wood provided) so you can enjoy an evening toasting marshmallows with the family. Walk the deck path to the screened in porch/overlook which is a great place to relax (or sleep here with twin cot provided). Feel free to take the stairs down to enjoy the creek running through the rear of the property--older children will love this!

The home also features a surround sound stereo system complete with eclectic CD selection, plenty of books to read and a DVD library for your viewing pleasure.

For great evening strolls and an opportunity to catch one of those unforgettable sunset views, Lake Michigan access is a short stroll away. If you are looking for a playground or a place to sunbathe, West Side County Park is a short drive (or 10 minute walk via lake access) and gives you 630 feet of public beach to enjoy.

Saugatuck/Douglas (a 10 minute drive) and South Haven (a 15 minute drive) which are close by, offer incredible art galleries, many dining venues, and great shopping.
