Welcome to Dunestar Cottage! Nestled among the pines you'll find our ranch cottage next to Warren Dunes State Park. Enjoy 7 miles of sandy Lake Michigan shoreline, just a 15 minute walk (1/4 mile) down a country road to the Warren Dunes beach. Only 90 miles from Chicago, our 3 bedroom, 3 bath cottage comfortably sleeps 8-10 people. Completely renovated and updated with luxury amenities including granite kitchen, stainless appliances, new furniture, carpets, and floors. New furnace and central A/C system installed in 2011.

Enjoy summer meals on the screened-in porch while the kids play on the backyard swingset. After splashing in the surf, wash away the sand in our relaxing outdoor shower. Play catch or have a campfire in the backyard. Rainy day? No problem! Our home has a finished carpeted basement complete with air hockey and toys. So much to do in Harbor Country and nearby St. Joseph, no matter what your interests, you'll find a way to relax and have fun at Dunestar Cottage.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are an active family who loves the outdoors. Generations of our families have enjoyed southwest Michigan and we decided to buy a home there in 2005. Some of our favorite things to do are go for walks on the beach, hike the Tower Hill sand dune, go fruit picking, browse antique stores on Red Arrow Highway and find joy in the simple pleasures of life. We hope you enjoy our home and create your own memories there.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Walk right into Warren Dunes State Park and enjoy miles of beaches and hiking trails.
