                          Car: Necessary

                          Bluffton Area (titled: Actor's Colony-since Chicago artists populated the area during the 20's and 30's) - a small peninsula nestled between Lake Michigan and Muskegon Lake.

                          Wonderful beaches, boating, hiking trails, shopping - walking distance (.03 mi) to Pere Marquette Park. Public access (1-block) to Muskegon Lake at either end of Cherry Street where you can relax and watch evening sunsets. There is also a public boat launch on Muskegon Lake approximately 1/4 mile from Cherry Resort.

                          This delightful property is sure to capture your enjoyment at season!


                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2000

                          About the owner: Originally we purchased this duplex as a monthly rental. However, the location is such that we wanted to share it as a weekly rental. We began this project in the spring of 2009 and completed it early this summer. The adjacent townhome will be available for rent next season. This would make it possible for two families to enjoy themselves at a single location. We are confident you will enjoy your stay.

                          Why the Owner Chose Muskegon:
                          Prior to using this as a vacation rental property it was a monthly rental. However, each time we improved the property I was impressed with the location and the amenities it had to offer. We live near by and I personally know how beautiful it is all year round. Whenever I am at Cherry House II I become more attached to the neighborhood and surroundings. On Sunday morings I have heard the church bells from the small church around the corner. The back yard fire-pit is wonderful in the evenings. Walks to Pere Marquette Beach are fun and then we return to Cherry House easily. Lakeside is a great place for shopping with candy store, art stores, book stores. You are sure to enjoy this stay.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                          This neighborhood is so entirely unique. Buster Keaton and his entourage summered here. There is history in the whole neighborhood. Each fall this is a 'Buster Keaton Festival'. The church bells ringing at noon everyday. The breeze, the waves. Its all very lovely.
