Arcadia house description

Vacation in the tree tops on exclusive Starkey Pointe in this beautiful modern home on Lake Arcadia, featuring direct access to Lake Michigan. The main living level is on the second floor, giving a view of both lakes! The living room features three Hancock & Moore leather sofas and a beautiful custom wool rug. Dine with a lakeside view on two teak tables with ten comfortable newly upholstered dining chairs. View passing boats as you work in the efficient kitchen, complete with dishwasher, new wall oven and electric stove top.
Sleep in one of the two upstairs king beds, the master bedroom attached to a bathroom with shower. On the main floor you'll enjoy the family room, complete with sofa, table and chairs, and an alcove with built in bunk beds, each having a privacy curtain. The lakeside downstairs bedroom features both a queen and twin bed plus houses a library of over 100 books for your reading pleasure. Enjoy a half bath on this level with a washer and dryer. You'll enjoy individual visiting areas on any of the 4 exterior decks surrounding the home. Or, grill and eat outside on the upper lakeside deck as you lounge in the comfy outside furniture or enjoy the swing. We have supplied the home with all you'll need in order to make this a stress free vacation! Just bring your own towels and you'll be ready to relax! 100 feet of sandy beach is in front of you for swimming or tanning! Or, walk 5 minutes south down the private road to enjoy the private Lake Michigan beach lot next to the channel which is available for your use, complete with a sweet gazebo for picnics.

Three marinas are within walking distance for guests arriving with larger boats. No boats are included with the rental but rent or bring your own kayak, canoe or speed boat and beach them right on the shore. And you must swim out to or boat over the remains of a section of the Minnehaha, a large vessel which sank in the late 1890's. It is located just north of the channel in Lake Michigan in about 5 feet of water and 300 feet off shore!

Enjoy the small village of Arcadia as you explore the three parks with children's play equipment, the public beach, or the community center and library. You will find a great gift shop and ice cream store with that special small town flavor.

Arcadia, an undiscovered treasure! Call or email the owner for more information!

              Year Purchased: 1983

              About the owner: Our family built this fabulous home on Lake Arcadia in 1983. Our family enjoys spending time here every year as the children gather from all over the country to reconnect!

              Why the Owner Chose Arcadia:
              Nestled in the trees, you'll love the sunlight and great views of both lakes, as well as the four wooden decks which provide comfortable areas for congregating!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Arcadia is an undiscovered marvel. This small town is full of charm. Golf at the fabulous Arcadia Bluffs just two miles away or visit Manistee or Frankfort in minutes! You'll want to see the remains of part of the Minnehaha in only 5 feet of water right off the channel and out only 200 feet! Factor in a visit to inspiration point, berry picking, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Interlochen Music Camp, boating, swimming and shopping!
