Property description

This Lake Michigan Beach cottage is the perfect place to relax and unwind. You will be treated to beautiful views of the water, dunes, and forest as you vacation in a setting that is loaded with natural beauty. Long walks, beach reading, and swimming in the clear, refreshing waters of Lake Michigan await those who would treat this home as their own.

The cottage is located between Ludington and Muskegon in Oceana county. Less than 10 miles from a major highway, we are off the beaten path in a private association of homes and cottages.

Features of the home include a large wrap around deck where you can lounge, grill, or take a 'just up from the beach” deck shower. The interior of the home has three bedrooms, a living and dining area, full kitchen, and two baths. There are ceiling fans in the bedrooms and living areas. We offer Satellite TV and Internet, and there is free local and long distance calling for 2015. There are DVD and VHS players for movies, plus a limited book/video library.

The first floor has a bedroom with two twin beds and the first bath. Two additional bedrooms and bath are on the second floor -- one very large bedroom with queen bed, the second bedroom with double bed. There are also two fold up roll-away beds, more suitable for a child. Sheets and towels are provided for renters and included in the rental rate.

The property is lower bluff and includes 100 feet of your own private beach. We have around 20 deck steps-- two sets of 10 or so down to the beach area (which you can see in the photos). The beach area is sandy, and you can walk for miles in either direction. Use of two recreational kayaks included with your rental.

This area of Michigan is known for its local produce and has abundant cherry, apple, peach, blueberry, and asparagus farms. Several quaint roadside produce stands and a few wineries are close by.

We are three miles north of Stoney Lake, and four miles south of the Silver Lake area. You will find historic Little Point Sable Lighthouse in the Silver Lake area as well as the magnificent dunes bordering Silver Lake. The village of Pentwater with its quaint artisan shops and antiques is about a 25 minute drive away.

The area has several golf courses-- Benona Shores golf is just 2 miles away. A tour of nearby Country Dairy Farm is a favorite outing for families with young children, and the thrill of Macwood Dune rides is not to be missed. There are many additional activity offerings in the surrounding vicinity including a rodeo, an amusement/water park , and the Silver Lake area offers go karts, mini golf, jet skis, windsurfing, and more.

After a day of fun in the sun or sightseeing, make sure you are back in time for the magnificent sunsets. On occasion a paraglider can be seen overhead . As darkness settles the night sky fills with brilliant stars. When it's time to call it a day, the rhythmic sound of waves lapping the shoreline allow you to drift into a restful, peaceful sleep.
