My family has stayed at this house twice, at the small house next door and are getting ready to go back again this year! This house isn't fancy but has everything you need for a great beach vacation! It's clean, convenient and comfortable for a large group. Jodie is a great person to rent from she is always willing to accommodate any requests if possible. Her properties are the first on our list for our annual Michigan trip!

Owner response: Thank you! My family and I try our best. We have always loved the area and every wonderful renter helps us maintain and improve our house and property. We get as much joy out of sharing our place with other families who love it as we do from going there ourselves. It is alot of work but it is worth it as long as there are people who love it.

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: Hi! I am Jodie Nettelhorst. I manage this property for my family. My sister, mom and myself bought this house and property in 2000. Our family has been vacationing in Southwest Michigan since I was young. Our mom owns the house and property next door but it just wasn't big enough now that we have families of our own. So, we bought this property so we could have a place we could go to and bring our families for years to come. We do our best to maintain and improve our property by reinvesting every year. We enjoy it when other families can come and share in our special place on the lake.
Why the Owner Chose St. Joseph:
My family has been enjoying vacations in Southwest Michigan all my life. We started vacationing in New Buffalo. As it got more crowded, we moved up to the St. Joseph area. Around 1990, my mom bought her first vacation house in the area on Lake Michigan. It is beautiful property but as my siblings and I marreid and had kids we outgrew the house. In 2000 the neighbors on the property next to my mom's wanted to sell. We ended buying our vacation house and now have plenty of room for our fmailies to gather, and, plenty of room to share when we can't use it.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have a large, secluded lot. It has two acres of mowed, grassy yard space. The house and property are on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. The sunsets are spectacular and the lake is your western horizon. We try to keep the house as comfortable and carefree as possible. That's the way we like it when we go on vacation.
