                  Manager info

                  About: My Mother and Father-in-law are your wonderful hosts at The Lakehouse. I am honored that they call me 'son'. I am Jim, and I have been a part of this family for 34 years. My wife and I and I own a business in Northern Michigan. Our office Westies love visiting 'G & G', their Grandma & Grandpa on Lake Michigan, running free, chasing squirrels & chipmunks with their Westie. We assist in opening and closing this rental home and we have had the fortunate opportunity to stay in this home numerous times. The Westies love to roam the land and beach. You will find this rental and your Lakehouse experience a relaxing, tranquil experience. You will hear only nature...No traffic...no city hustle and bustle. Only the sounds of nature, and waves lapping on the beach. Civilization is a short drive away, convenient when you desire to roam the countryside, or go for supplies. I assist my in-laws in the rental and management of this property. You can reach me by telephone at 231-946-2980.

                  Why Onekama:
                  The private setting affords guests the freedom to vacation in a secluded area, free from areas crowded with tourists. Fishing exists right out your door on the pier, just steps away. Little River Casino is 8 miles down the road. The Heathlands Golf Course, featuring breathtaking views of Portage Lake is 4 miles from your door. Arcadia Bluffs Golf Course, one of the world's finest golf challenges, is 30 minutes away. Scenic drives to Frankfort and the Traverse Bay area make for a nice day trip. The Lakehouse is a great place to spend 100% of your vacation time, or it can be your vacation headquarters to discover all that is great in Northern Michigan. The Lakehouse beach has special meaning for my wife and me. We were married on the beach.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Ever go to the beach, and find your experience as crowded and noisy as a subway bus terminal? You will only find your family on the beach on Lake Michigan. It is your private beach during your stay. You may choose to have an evening bonfire to relax and soak in the stars at night.
