Beautiful, recently redecorated cottage directly on Lake Michigan. Private sandy beach for long walks, jogging, enjoying the sun, or swimming. Two Kayaks are available. You can actually walk the 3 miles to Saugatuck's Oval Beach and take the adorable ferry over to the town. Gorgeous sunsets. Patios on both sides of house, one for enjoying the lake and the other for the lovely woods in back. Great views from all the windows. Our long driveway is off of Lakeshore Drive, which is great for long walks, jogging and biking. Bathrooms were just updated in fall of 2011.

Location

Besides enjoying our beautiful beach, it is fun to play in the creek which is just to the north of our beach. We have kayaks, but you might want to rent a paddleboard. There is fishing in the lake or surrounding rivers. Enjoy telling stories and roasting s'mores by our firepit. Nearby blueberry, raspberry, apple and peach picking is fun for kids and adults. Saugatuck, Douglas, Holland, Fennville, and South Haven all have great restaurants, shops and art galleries. Pick up a treasure in the antique mall in Douglas or one of the shops nearby.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We own the house next door and are there most weekends and some weeks. We live in Kalamazoo, but we're always eager to get back to the lake.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Michigan Beach:
Nothing beats a sunset over Lake Michigan! We've loved this cottage since our family bought the property next door in 1960. When the cottage became available, we snapped it up.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The sunsets, the views, the lake, the privacy. It's so peaceful and quiet here and yet there is so much to do, either at the cottage or nearby. We're never bored, just happy and contented.
