Property description

Located central to everything 1/4 mile from Lake Michigan, 5 minutes from Four Winds Casino, Blue Chip Casino and two golf courses and the Lighthouse place outlet mall. Rental supplied with 2 passenger golf cart but you can upgrade to 4 passenger, 6 passenger or even 8 passenger limo golf cart for additional fee. The driver of the golf cart must be 21 or over and a licensed driver. Home is turn key with everything we could think of that you might need, 100 DVD, condiments, pots, pans, BBQ supplies, dogie treats, so-mores, firewood, games, laptop, laundry detergent, dish washing detergent, bongo drums (kidding on that one), card games, good books, cooking oil and spices, beach towels and more.

Just bring the food and the beverage of choice and enjoy the Cozy Cottage.

House has a large living room with big screen TV and a full DVD library to choose from. Excellent kitchen, whirlpool bathtub, full laundry, and a bar area.

Large rear deck with grill for outdoor enjoyment. Fire pit and fully fenced back yard

Location is in the middle of everything. 5 miles from Four Winds Casino, Blue Chip Casino, New Buffalo an Michigan City. We are on a highway and you can hear cars in the front of the house but the sleeping area in the back is good. Amtrack operates a 100 mph train a few times a day and you will know when it is coming, thankfully they do not run late at night with the last train about 10 PM Michigan time.

I would stress with one word what you will find in our cottage 'Sanitized'.

We clean this unit ourselves and do not use a service, everything is laundered and bleached, floors are 100% ceramic with throw rugs and you will find the entire home immaculate I am sure.
