Owner info

About the owner: As former teachers we know how great it is to find the right place to get away and relax. We have rented our Lake Michigan home for the past few years with many of our families returning every year. There aren't many homes like this for rent.

Why the Owner Chose Shelby, MI, USA:
We bought in this area because it was right on Lake Michigan and just 25 easy access steps to the beach. The swimming is fantastic and you can walk the sandy beach for miles. It is easy to get to, from Chicago it is only 4 hours and Grand Rapids is just little over an hour.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is so private and quite. You can relax with out having other cottages right out your window. The deck has plenty of space and the cottage has an open floor plan to accomadate everyone inside too. It is updated and very clean.
