Shelby house description

Back on VRBO, now being managed by the owners. This Lake Michigan Beach House 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.

The home 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. Ceiling fans in the bedrooms and living areas. There is Satellite TV, DVD and VHS players, plus a limited book/video library. Phones are for local calls or long distance can be made with a calling card. The first floor has a bedroom with two twin beds and the first bath. Two additional bedrooms and bath on the second floor -- one large bedroom with queen bed, the second bedroom with double bed. There are also two fold up rollaway single beds, more suitable for a child.

The property is lower bluff and includes one hundred feet of your own private beach. We have around 20 deck steps-- two sets of 10 or so down to the beach area. The beach area is sandy, and you can walk for miles in either direction.


This area of Michigan is known for its local produce and has abundant cherry, apple, peach, and asparagus farms. Several quaint roadside produce stands and 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. Several golf courses are in the area-- Benona Shores golf is just 1.5 miles away. There are many additional activity offerings to choose from.

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 you watch the sun dip into the sea. 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 peaceful sleep.
