Property description

The first three weeks in June are still available! And we've made improvements! Our downstairs bathroom has been completely renovated, we've installed new carpeting throughout, have a brick fire pit out front, new queen mattresses (3) in the bedrooms, and now have a canoe for renters' use.
The Sandcastle is a comfortable four-bedroom beachfront family home looking out on beautiful Lake Michigan in Oceana County, 15 miles south of the Silver Lake sand dunes. This summer home sleeps eight, has parking for three cars, and sits on the northern-most lot of the Driftwood Beach Community - 120 ft. of beachfront. It's an easy walk down to the white-sand beach. The Sandcastle is generally available Spring and Fall, and during the Summer when we're not using it.
The land immediately north of the cottage is completely undeveloped - unspoiled nature at it's best - beautiful open beach and sand dunes for quiet evening walks or morning jogs. Behind the dunes are woods for hiking and exploring, and little Lost Lake for Blue Heron watching. Enjoy the swimming and kayaking, and at the end of the day there's nothing like relaxing on the outdoor deck, just watching the spectacular sunsets over the lake. Dog friendly. WIFI and cable.

Owner info

About the owner: Our family has been enjoying this wonderful home on Lake Michigan for 50 years

Why the Owner Chose Shelby:
This is a family home - and feels like it. You can get all the relaxation you'll ever need. Easy walk over rolling dunes to the beach - all sand, no rocks.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We regularly see eagles and blue herons, and there's nothing like the open, undeveloped nature conservancy adjacent to our property on the north.
