Property description

Wonderful family home just steps from private beach. This house was thoughtfully built and furnished for a large family ~ or two ~ to relax in comfort and enjoy all Grand Beach has to offer. Separate family rooms on both levels and two large dining areas allow plenty of space for meals, games or conversations around the brick fireplace. The second floor has 3 good sized knotty pine bedrooms, and a large sleeping porch ( a favorite place for any child who has slept there ) and 2 brand new ceramic tile bathrooms with skylights. As well as a private outdoor shower with changing room. The kitchen is good sized and thoughtfully stocked with everything your family will need to create meals to enjoy either inside or on our stone patio. A brand new half bath and laundry room are also on the first floor.

Good sized front and back yards for badminton, bocci, or croquet. Or lounge on the hammock under the trees. Parking for 6-7 cars.

We are 4 houses from a beautiful private beach on Lake Michigan, walking distance to Grand Beach Golf Course, a basketball court, tennis courts and playground.
Our golf cart is available to cruise the charming Grand Beach community and to help you haul your stuff to the beach.
For more information about the Grand Beach Community please go to www.grandbeach.org.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We had rented in Grand Beach for many years and finally took the plunge in 2011. We enjoy using our cottage during the summer, but many kids activities keep us in Chicago so we decided to rent it out for a few weeks every summer.

Why the Owner Chose Grand Beach:
We love the proximity to the beach and the two separate family rooms. Our kids and their friends enjoy the sleeping porch and hanging out on the hammock under the trees. They also spend many hours on the basketball court, tennis courts and the golf course. There is also a great playground within walking distance to the cottage.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The new outdoor shower in 2013 is a great way to clean off after the beach or just to enjoy a shower under the stars. Grand Beach is a quiet private community where kids ride their bikes, walk to the clubhouse for an afternoon ice cream treat or cruise around on the golf cart enjoying the beautiful homes and abundant deer.
