Property description

This six bedroom, 2.5 bath cottage located on the Lake Michigan beach has been cared for by the same family for almost 100 years. The location is spectacular with miles of fine sand beaches out your front door and beautiful Portage Lake and beaches out your back door. It just does not get much better. The home is not modern and new which makes it the perfect idea of an old fashion beach cottage. Full kitchen with a gas grill on the patio out back. Living room, dining area, and glassed in porch blend together to create the perfect large gathering area. The sand is some of the best in the world, the water is crystal clear and you can wade far offshore before the water gradually gets over your head. Sunsets and evening campfires on the beach are the best. Beautiful drives up the coast along scenic M22 through apple and cherry orchards. Stop and shop at the unique villages along the way. Visit lighthouses and wineries. Six 18 hole golf courses in our county alone; Arcadia Bluffs, The Heathlands, Bear Lake County Highlands, Manistee National, and Manistee Golf and Country Club. Bring your fishing pole and fish right out your door. Book a charter fishing trip out of Portage Lake on Lake Michigan for Salmon and Trout or visit some world class trout and salmon streams in the area. Try your luck at the Little River Casino, 10 miles away. Hope your family gets to experience this wonderful place.
