Welcome to our house! Our two-storied house/with finished basement is made of cedar with a huge deck that overlooks the nearby forest. Very private with few neighbors, the house is located 10 minutes south of historic Manistee, just off highway 31, and about 5 minutes from Manistee’s boat launch. Many local beaches with amazing playgrounds for kids and golf within a 5-minute drive.
A 10- to 15-minute walk along a marked, wooded path takes you to Lake Michigan beach and scenic views. We also live next door to Magoon Creek, Magoon Creek is a large natural recreation area with hiking and biking trails. Magoon Creek is a great spot for an afternoon picnic with beaches they are generally fairly quiet. The park offers many picnic tables and covered pavilions nestled high atop a 150’+ bluff, the view is spectacular. It is a 15-minute walk or 2 minute drive. Of course we hope nature cooperates with us:)
Dine inside or outside with seating for 20 between the upper and lower decks along two sides of the house. The kitchen features granite countertops, refrigerator/dishwasher, and stove/oven/vent/disposal. The lower deck has a gas grill and a swing.

New Updates for 2019- We will be installing 3 more mini wall splits (A/C & Heat units) to the home for a total of 5. We will also be added a water heater instead of using the current boiler heat to warm up the water. :):)
