Manistee house description

3br/2ba Waterfront private ranch home...more than a cabin or cottage...a real Lake Michigan paradise! Miles of Sandy Beach with amazing view of the lake. Enjoy our Sunroom, great Hickory Kitchen, living room with 52' tv (not flat screen), a Master bedroom with private bath plus 2 other bedrooms, one with a queen and the 3rd with a queen and twin bunks. Even a HOT TUB on the deck with a view of the lake! *May only be seasonal. Inquire.

Have a bonfire at our Fire pit steps from the house! Perfect way to end your day, watching the sun set or the stars rise.

Our deeded private beach is shared with neighbors. Access is down our stairs (65 steps) through/over/in front of the creek to the north. (time of year and amount of rain affects size and depth of the creek)

Want more excitement? Then gear up for river trips, charter fishing, world-class golf, CASINO excitement or even an airplane ride. With all there is to do - or not do - this will be the spot you will want to return again and again.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: My husband Michael has just retired after owning his own landscape business in the Chicago suburbs and I am the perennial 'mult-tasker' having worked as an actor in Chicago, helping with the landscape business, being a lifestyle and job coach and running our vacation home business.

              Why the Owner Chose Manistee:
              Our family of 5 had been vacationing in northern Michigan since 1985 and longed to have a place of our own. In the summer of 2003, we found a lovely road off the highway that have wonderful beaches and wasn't 'touristy'. We looked at a couple of properties but they didn't fit our budget. Then that fall, I found a listing online and we decided to drive up (300 miles) and couldn't believe how perfect it was for us. The only way we could afford buying it was to rent it out and as they say, the rest is history!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The greatest benefit to staying at our home called 'Heaven' is because that's the feeling many people get whenever visiting! Because the property is wider rather than deep, the privacy and view from the home is amazing. It offers feelings of tranquility and is a true respite from the business of life. (It's a nice home too!)
