Why the Owner Chose Shelby: We love the beachfront and the easy access to Lake Michigan. This is also a rare property where you actually own the beach front, it is not access or association owned like most other properties. In addition the cottage is only 75 miles from our home which allows us to be hands on for our guests.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Fantastic view of the beach and lakefront from the Master Bedroom. Access the upper wrap around deck from the Master Bedroom. With a dune to the North and foliage blocking the view of nearby cottages, you will experience a peacefull vacation unlike other lake front rentals which share public access, or are part of large associations. If you want to stay in touch with the office, broadband internet and a workspace with a view allows you to work and play.
