Property description

3 Night Minimum

Comfortable year-round cottage set on 15 acres of private forested land one mile from Lake Michigan beaches. This is the perfect place for those who love nature and also want time at the beach with easy access to Harbor Country shops and restaurants.

This newly remodeled fully furnished cottage has an open design and new appliances. There is an enclosed porch, two decks and a charcoal grill.

Hike or cross country ski into the back of the property and discover the Lake Michigan ravine that consumes these 15 acres. Take the half-mile path through the ravine and over three footbridges to find yourself in one of the most beautiful natural environs left in the state, a true climax beech-maple forest. The land is dominated by massive Beech, Maple, Oak, Hickory, and Yellow Poplar trees. It is part of the same beech-maple forest which makes up Warren Woods State Park, and Open Land’s 80 acre Robinson Preserve, both just down the road. Did I say hiking?

Bring your binoculars!
As you might guess, this is a great place for birds. From Ruby Throated Hummers to Pileated and Red-Bellied Woodpeckers, you’ve come to the right place. With several feeders in the yard and a big old Trumpet Vine for the hummers, the birds are a wonderful distraction. There’s also a lovely pond in the yard where you can visit the frogs or watch the occasional bird bathe.

Cherry Beach and Pier Street Beach are a short bike ride away and just two of the many wonderful sandy beaches in the area. If you prefer to drive, the cottage comes with a township beach parking pass. There are four beach chairs and two beach umbrellas for your use.

If the evenings are cool, build a bonfire in the firepit, or light the woodstove inside.

Located in the center of Harbor Country, Lakeside offers a bounty of activities. Spend a day at Warrren Dunes State Park, just 10 minutes away, or visit the historic village of Three Oaks and catch a film at the Vickers Theater. Spend an afternoon exploring antique shops along the Red Arrow Highway or visit one of the local wineries. Bring your bikes and ride the quiet country back roads. Make a feast with fresh locally grown produce and something to grill from Falatic's, our local butcher. Then take a night off and dine at one of the many great restaurants within a few minutes drive. I like Casey's in New Buffalo and Cafe Gulistan in Harbert, but there are too many to choose from!
