Shelby cottage description

Lake Michigan beaches are praised for their, 'variety of beaches with fine to grainy sand and clean clear water' according to Dr. Beach, Stephen Leatherman, who judges and rates beaches all over the U.S, the 7-1-11 of the Detroit Free Press. Enjoy these beaches and more at our Driftwood cottage on Lake Michigan.

Enjoy beautiful sunsets, cookouts and long quiet walks on pure white sand from this Lake Michigan Beach Front Cottage. A repeat, renter said it reminded her of growing up on ‘old’ Cape Cod, private, quite and beautiful. No steps to the beach, only a gently sloping sand dune to run down. There is a fire pit and beach chairs on the beach for marshmallow and hot dog roasts, while you watch the beautiful sunsets, or watch the beautiful changing sunsets while having dinner on the deck. or the sunrise while you have your morning coffee.

It is 7 miles south of Little Pointe Sable and the Silver Lake sand dunes. This area has many family actives: dune buggy rides, which are both fun and educational, miniature golf, go-carts, horse back riding,etc. It is just a 15 minute drive to Pentwater with many delightful art galleries, a large antique store, and many other unique shops. There are golf courses, for the beginner or the expert, only minutes away. 30 miles of rails to trails for biking. You can also tour a working farm with the family, and then visit their old fashion soda fountain. They also have wonderfully fresh dairy and beef products for you to purchase. Or just relax..

                  Owner info

                  Why the Owner Chose Shelby:
                  We built this cottage in 1970 and raised our family - three boys and now eight grandchildren there. We have aged and go less often, so now our cottage is available to rent.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Peace and quiet; beautiful sunsets, beach walks, along a nearly private beach, dark nights with beautiful bright stars; swimming, golf 5 minutes away,tubing in the Stoney river down to Lake Michigan.
