Christie Lake house description

Welcome to our family home, a lovely two-story lake house named the Cottage, located on beautiful Christie Lake. This lovely home has a grass yard and sandy beach that backs directly onto private Christie Lake with woods side parking spaces. As you enter the Cottage, a large airy two story living room greets you with relaxing views of the lake. To your immediate left is bedroom 1 with a cozy double bed, window view to the woods and an attached door to the first floor bathroom. Walking further into the Cottage, to your left you enter the spacious and bright family style kitchen with a large kitchen table and seating at the central kitchen counter. From the sunny kitchen windows you can see beautiful Christie Lake and walk out the kitchen door onto the large wood deck with table and chairs. The gracious stairway leads to the three second floor bedrooms, each with an attached private bathroom. Bedroom 2 has 1 double bed and 2 twin beds with window views to the woods. Bedroom 3 has 2 twin beds with a skylight to the stars and a side window view up to trees. Bedroom 4 has 1 queen bed with windows views of the beach and lake. We hope you will find this Cottage, rebuilt in 1989, a relaxing, restful and rejuvenating place to stay.

Your Christie Lake vacation home is located a few miles off of I94 at the Lawrence #52 exit in Van Buren County in Southwest Michigan. This is a lovely natural area with woods, working farms, and local farm stands that sell fresh fruit and vegetables. Paw Paw is 15-20 minutes away and has many restaurants, large grocery store, various wineries such as the St. Julian’s Winery and the Warner Vineyards, and the Sugar Bear Ice Cream Parlor. This lovely lake home is located about half-way between St. Joseph on the west and Kalamazoo on the east, which is a 30-40 minute drive to movie theaters, restaurants, museums, and city shopping. The surrounding towns have various fairs and festivals which can be fun to experience for the whole family. And of course there is always relaxing at the Cottage at Christie Lake which is a private, no public access, spring fed lake.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This property is also for sale. The possibility exists that there could be a real estate showing during your stay or this property could be sold before your stay.

                      Owner info

                      Why the Owner Chose Christie Lake:
                      Our family has been coming to Christie Lake for over 114 years and through six generations. The Cottage was rebuilt in 1989 on the site of a 1898 family log cabin. The Cottage is now a year round family home.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The special benefits are relaxing on the Cottage deck, looking at beautiful Christie Lake and letting all your cares drift pleasantly away, sitting and reading your favorite book inside or outside, playing in the sand and water, enjoying food and companionship with family and friends, and just resting and rejuvenating body and soul… … And catching sight of the graceful blue herons.
