Property description

ALL RENTS WILL BE DISCOUNTED 18% FOR ALL RENTALS BETWEEN LABOR DAY AND MEMORIAL DAY. THIS INCLUDES SPRING AND FALL 2015 RENTALS. CALL FOR A QUOTE TODAY.

We are excited and looking forward to sharing our vacation property with our 2015 guests. This year we are opening earlier than in the past years and offering an 18% discount in the Spring and Fall. We have also been adding some new decorations and fire pits, which several guests last year recommended. We also remodeled the bathroom in the Little House (tan house) first floor bath by adding new ceramic tiles in the shower. We already have several reservations, so please call early and we will be happy to work with you to arrange a wonderful stay with us along Lake Michigan shore line.

Our property is approximately 4 acres of 100 year old trees with a 100 foot private clean sandy beach in southwest Michigan's Harbor Country. We sit on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan with beautiful scenic views and evening sunsets.

We have two very quaint country cottages, each with a very relaxing comforting atmosphere.

The 'Pink House' is perfect for a small family of 2 to 4 people. It has two bedrooms (both rooms have full size beds), a living room kitchenette, a dining room and one bath.

The 'Little House' is actually quite spacious. This house is also quite versatile with a lower level house and an upper level apartment, which can be rented in combination or separately. The 'Little House' lower level has two bedrooms (one queen bed, the other with bunk beds), a living room kitchenette, dining room and one bath with shower. The upstairs apartment includes one bedroom with a queen size bed, a small living room with a fold out couch, a kitchenette and a small bath with a shower (no tub). This house has a great room that is situated between the lower house and the upper apartment and can be used by the renters.

All renters have use of a gas grill and picnic benches.
