ALL NEW BATHROOM WITH EXTRA SINK, NEW KITCHEN AND APPLIANCES, FRESHLY PAINTED, SANDED FLOORS, A NEW MODERN COUNTRY LOOK!!

Located on a very peaceful, wooded lot-- Wake up and maybe see a deer in the woods behind the house and the sound of the birds singing. On a windy day, you can hear the waves from Lake Michigan!

A charming and relaxing home in Lakeside, MI, only ten minutes to the shops/dining/entertainment of New Buffalo!

A short 5 minute walk to the quiet/private Association beach of Lake Michigan. Only for owners and guests.

Plenty of trails for hiking, bird watching and biking within minutes from the property. This area is gorgeous in spring, summer, fall, and winter!

Location from Chicago is only 1 hour and 30 minutes from downtown - an ideal weekend escape to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city!

NEWLY RENOVATED WITH:
NEW KITCHEN (DISHWASHER), BATHROOM,
FLOORING AND CARPETS
FRESH PAINT AND FIXTURES -- AND BRAND NEW LOOK

The home is irresistably charming and newly redecorated. All linens and towels are provided, as well as all cooking utensils for great at-home family meals and barbecues! Includes charcoal, firewood for the fire pit, coffee and filters!

Free Wi-FI, Satellite TV, VCR/DVD, washer/dryer.

The home also has a large private yard (fenced in at the front of the yard, the remaining yard is surrounded by woods and landscaping) perfect for children & pets. The neighborhood is very child safe and pet friendly. The house has games, books, puzzles, and satellite TV.

Don't leave your dog at home! We DO Allow DOGS, but no cats.(Pets are considered on an individual basis). So, if you are averse or allergic to animals, this is NOT the home for you.

ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING.

We do not rent to anyone under 25.

ALSO-most all of the homes in the area access the beach via 50-60 stairs, as we are located above the dune. If you are elderly or disabled, this home is probably not going to work for you due to the stairs down to the beach (but, the house is all on one level).

Owner info

About the owner: We have owned a home on this lane for over 20 years and love the peaceful nature of the area. We take pride on keeping the integrity of the area as natural as possible while enjoying the amenities of a cottage. And in the summer, we spend most of our time on the private lane owned beach!

Why the Owner Chose Lakeside:
We love the location of this house because it backs up to a wooded area that will never be built upon. A little stream runs way back there and the animal and bird viewing can be exciting. And the proximity to the beautiful Lake Michigan beach is an extra added bonus!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Peaceful surroundings, occassionally seeing deer in the lot across the way, bird watching, being the only one walking on the beach.......It's beautiful! Close to New Buffalo and Three Oaks Michigan. Just sitting outside and enjoying the fresh air!
