'Peaceful' is how you'll describe this 'Old World' Lake MIchigan Cottage with its leisurely, quiet charm. You'll find yourself on a beautiful private sand beach on the Lake MIchigan shore just a few yards over the bluff. Seagulls are sure to greet you, and a blue heron sometimes watches cautiously on the beach. The deer and fawn in the adjacent pine woods sometimes greet you in the morning at the lane in front of the cottage. Bike routes and walking trails are just down the lane. Just a few miles north is Grand Haven, the Coast Guard Capital of the world with its world famous Musical Fountain, State Park, and lots to see and do. Just a few miles south you'll find Holland, the Tulip Capital with charming places to see.

Enclosed front porch upstairs is often chosen as the 'master bedroom' by guests with all-around windows--open the shades for the view during day; close them at night for sleeping. Sitting area facing the lake is a favorite among guests to relax and enjoy. Close the door for privacy at night.
During the day and evening, the large central sitting area/living room upstairs is a great place to relax and read or spend quiet time with friends and family.
