Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Retired lawyer turned inn-keeper. I'm in love with the dune-lands and grateful to be able to share them. I also live in Miller full time.

Why the Owner Chose Miller Beach:
This home is magical, surrounded by an Oak forest and close to Lake Michigan.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Although it looks like a cottage from the front, when you walk in, you walk back to the 1920s and the original, private slate garden.
