About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

Classic Lake House with Hot Tub

Kick off your shoes at the house and walk barefoot down to the water. Put the sand between your toes at Twin Lake in Muskegon for a perfect vacation getaway. The water is so crisp you can skip a handful of rocks and still see to the sandy bottom!

The lake dips gradually, so kids can easily play in the shallow end. In the summer, sit at the outdoor fire pit and listen to the frogs sing. In the fall, stay warm by the fireplace and take in the autumn foliage. During any season, gaze up at the late night sky and point out constellations with the kids.

Bringing a larger crew? Ask about renting our second vacation rental nearby, The Beachfront Cottage, to sleep 10 more guests.

Inside the House

The 3 BR, 2 BA home has two floors. The upper level includes the great room, dining area and fireplace. The recently renovated kitchen is ready for whatever you want to cook up. Eat at the circular glass table, or settle in at the barstools at the kitchen counter. (We also have a high chair, if you’re bringing a little one along.) Soak in some natural light from the large windows and glass doors.

On the upper level, snag the master bedroom before the kids get to it. Features:
•King-size bed
•Down comforter (great for chilly evenings)
•Futon chair (junior twin) perfect for a toddler!

Also on the upper level:
•Second bedroom with twin/double bunk bed
•Updated full bathroom with soaking tub and shower

If you need more sleeping space for the kids, the futon chair in the master bedroom works as a small junior twin.

The lower level is great for young adults who are itching for privacy or space to just hang out. On rainy days, play some foosball, challenge each other to a board game, or dig into a new book. The downstairs features:
•Walk-out basement
•Second fireplace
•Bedroom with queen bed
•Full bathroom and shower
•Wet bar
•Home theatre with flat screen TV
•Extensive movie library
•Two Queen Murphy Beds

Full house? We also have two twin hideaway beds.

You’ll be super comfortable inside, but don’t forget the great outdoors waiting for you, including:
•Stellar fishing location on the dock
•Wrap-around deck with Adirondack deck chairs and patio set
•Therapuetic hot tub from May – October
•Outdoor shower to rinse off the sand
•20 ft. Pontoon boat available to rent

After a long day of hiking, relax your aching muscles in the hot tub. At dusk, the kids can run around the yard catching fireflies, as you watch the panoramic view of the sunset on the lake.

Our Location

The secluded area is full of sandy beaches. The house is only 5 miles off of US 31, so you’re never too far from town. Michigan’s Adventure Amusement and Water Park is a leisurely 10-minute drive from the house. Other attractions include:
•Silver Lake Sand Dunes (30 miles)
•Local Lighthouses
•Area Festivals
•Grand Haven (22 miles)
•Blue Lake Fine Arts Center (5 miles)
•Michigan’s Adventure Amusement and Water Park (8 miles)

Your relaxing, family-friendly vacation is right here in Muskegon on Twin Lake! Book our place by the week in the summertime or for a long weekend in the off-season. If you have more guests, we also rent our nearby cottage with plenty of room for 10 more people. The cottage shares use of the pontoon boat. Let us know if you’d like to rent the boat and we’ll get your rooms ready!

Therapeutic HOT TUB (May - October) to relax those aching muscles while enjoying our beautiful lakefront views and picturesque Fall Colors. Two wood fireplaces, and a bon fire pit for those cool fall & winter nights.

** Please note that outdoor equipment and furnishings are stored away from November until May **

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Welcome! We’re Kathy and Chuck Kircus, owners of Sandy Shores of Twin Lake. Until the economic downturn, we were both involved in the automotive industry. We’re hard workers, and we love Michigan, so we immediately started looking for a new opportunity. Usually some unexpected event is what makes you realize what’s most important to you. For us, it was spending time with our family, relaxing on our pontoon boat, taking in a crisp view of the night sky. We knew that in Michigan, we could always find a new start. So, we used the money from our retirement and created Sandy Shores of Twin Lake, LLC. We purchased the cottage in 2005, and the house in 2007. We understand the importance of family, a calm, relaxing vacation, and how a cozy atmosphere helps bring people together. Our properties aren’t just rentals. This place is home! My family takes an annual 10-day vacation together here ourselves. We adopted four special needs children and we experience our house and cottage with them, our parents, and our close friends. Each year, we see these children grow as they make little sandcastles and chase fireflies in the yard. Our story started with some hardship and continues with great joy. A house and a cottage later, we’re still planning our vacations and deciding who brings the marshmallows and the graham crackers for s’mores around the bonfire. In 2015 we celebrated our 10th anniversary as Sandy Shores of Twin Lake. It’s such a gift to us to see our guests making memories with their family and friends here, just like we have. We’d be happy for you to see why our family cherishes Western Michigan so much! Sandy Shores of Twin Lake purchased this house in 2007

Why the Owner Chose Twin Lake, MI, USA:
Discover Twin Lake, a freshwater haven that inspires both awe and adventure. Our rentals are designed to give you uninhibited access to the lake and views of its shoreline. Perfect for small children, the lakefront has crystal-clear, warm inland waters, a sandy bottom, and a gradual depth with no muck. Cozy cottage-like interiors let you curl up fireside while looking out over acres of deep water. Grassy yards lead to picture-perfect beaches. And just a short drive away, historical scenic lighthouses and fun-packed Michigan's Adventure Amusement & Water Park await. With 25 years of experience in customer service, we’ll ensure your vacation goes off without a hitch. Join us for a lakeside retreat you won’t soon forget at Sandy Shores of Twin Lake, LLC.
