Shelby house description

Now taking rentals for Fall 2014, and the 2015 Spring and Summer season. 10% discount on Sept. and Oct. week-long rentals!
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. As of July 2014 we have a new fire pit out front, new carpeting throughout, and new queen mattresses (3).
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.

Now accepting rentals for 2014. We offer 2-night and 3-night weekend rates of $550/$750 for March, April, October and November. We are closed the months of December, January and February. $300 premium for Holiday weekend rentals
