Arcadia cottage description
We are not yet taking reservations for Summer 2015, but we will accept inquiries due to an major construction project. When our project is completed we will provide immediate notice on this site. We hope that the final completion date of our current renovation/construction will be late fall 2014.
Our new lower level walk-out project will add two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, an additional living area, and a laundry area to the main cottage.
We are happy to respond to inquiries, but will not take deposits or commit to weeks for Summer 2015 until the completion of our project is certain.
Our 2.3 acre property with 186 feet of direct Lake Michigan frontage with direct walk out to the water is in the historic Pierport community halfway between Manistee and Frankfort. Our beachfront is a direct walk out to a beautiful wide sandy Lake Michigan beach. It is possible to walk several hours both north and south, on this lovely beach north to Arcadia and south to Onekama. The property also includes a small stream which flows out to Lake Michigan and a large flat yard perfect for all types of lawn games. A large firepit area and romantic swing overlook Lake Michigan's special sunsets.
The main house will include: two bedrooms and two full bathrooms on the lower level, two bedrooms and one full bath on the main level, living/dining room, and kitchen. There are two bedrooms and a half bath upstairs. The screened porch has additional seating and a dining table overlooking Lake Michigan.
A separate guest house is fully self contained with one bedroom and a queen sofa bed in the living room and a kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances. It also has a living/dining room, full bath with whirlpool tub and washer/dryer. It is great place for family members who would like a bit more privacy. It was totally redone in 2011.
There is a flat screen HDTV in each house. Both cottages have fireplaces. WiFI/Internet is provided.
The main house is a classic Lake Michigan cottage originally constructed in 1889. There is a pretty wooded area across the stream from both cottages. Woodlands are also across the street.
This is a beautiful waterfront setting and a perfect place to enjoy a classic Pure Michigan summer. We live here in the Spring and Fall of each year. We only rent for 10-12 weeks in the summer. We do not rent for weekends or during the other seasons of the year.
Additional pictures are available on request.
Property comes fully furnished with bed linens, towels, beach towels, dishes, silverware and cooking utensils.
Furnished with classic furniture and some antiques.
The Lake Michigan sunsets never cease to amaze.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We spent three years looking for a Lake Michigan waterfront property and were fortunate to find this very special property. To preserve the serenity, we do not allow jet skis/personal watercraft on the property.
Why the Owner Chose Arcadia:
This beautiful Lake Michigan beachfront property is accessible with only three steps. We really liked having the two separate cottages. The main cottage was built in 1889, but we have just added a new lower level with more bedrooms and bathrooms. The adjacent separate Carriage House was redone in 2011 with a modern kitchen.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Several of Northwest lower Michigan's wonderful smaller towns (Onekama, Arcadia and Bear Lake are located within a 10 minute drive. The special small towns of the Leelanau Peninsula (Leland, Northport and Suttons Bay) are easily accessible within an hour. Sleeping Bear dunes and Traverse City only an hour north. Arcadia Bluffs Golf Course (Michigan's #1 public course) is only five minutes north.
