Shelby cottage description

Experience Lake Michigan from your own private beach frontage. The cottage features breath taking views from the deck. The dunes are spectacular. Only 45 stairs lead to your path to the beach; however, there is an easement which allows you to drive to the base of the stairs allowing a no step walk to the beach or easy access for your kayak or beach toys. Sit by the beach side fire pit, enjoy miles of sugar sand Beach in either direction. The cottage was recently purchased and remodeled in 2013. Updates include new flooring, painting throughout, new beds, new furniture and air conditioning. The cottage features a queen bed in the master bedroom, a full bed in the downstairs bedroom and 4 twin beds in the bunkroom. The cottage sleeps eight. There are two full baths. For rainy days the cottage offers flat screen TV's, WIFI Internet, Cable TV and a Nintendo Game Cube Systems. Free local and long distance calling is included, since your Cell phone may not receive calls. The property had been a five star rental under prior ownership, we hope to provide an even better experience.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2012

          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.
