Property description

Our spacious summer cottage sits on a wooded dune with unobstructed views and private property access to Lake Michigan. The large front yard leads to a footbridge and beach path over two long dunes winding down to our private Lake Michigan beachfront. The path, bridge and steps to the beach are well maintained and easy to navigate. The environment is peaceful and relaxing - you will never see crowds. We take pride in ensuring a high quality experience for our guests and look for renters who will treat the cottage as their home.

There are three bedrooms and one sleeping porch that can accommodate a total of 9 people. Bedroom 1 has a king bed, Bedroom 2 has a queen bed and Bedroom 3 has a king and two twins. We allow up to 10 if there is an infant or small child not requiring their own bed. There are two full baths, one with a tub, and there is a washer/dryer for your use.

You can enjoy views of Lake Michigan and breathtaking sunsets from the deck and/or the outdoor fire pit. Take naps in our large hammock, relax on the clean, sandy beach, golf, bike, kayak, or walk the shoreline for miles.

For golfers, a great public lakefront golf course is just 2 miles up the road. For bicyclists, the Hart-Montague bike trail is minutes away. Kayaking and all forms of boating available. If you enjoy sightseeing, you can find interesting lakefront attractions and resort towns within a short drive!

The cottage has comfortable, inviting furnishings throughout and high quality bed linens and comforters on all beds. Two screened porches - one with wicker furniture and an antique harvest table which is great for family dinners or games and the other with a sleeping couch for extra guests. On cool nights, you can enjoy the wonderful wood-burning fireplace - plenty of wood is provided.

The beach is very sandy with very few rocks and a gentle sloping drop off into the water. Beach walks are a favorite past time as you can walk for miles. Responsible beach fires are allowed.

For families with young children we have a booster seat, and assorted toys (passed down from our own children) for little ones to enjoy.

We are dog lovers and therefore allow one well behaved dog and responsible owners. Pet rules must be adhered to and leash laws are in effect. Sorry - but absolutely no cats allowed. Our cleaning process is very thorough to ensure all guests enjoy their stay in very clean surroundings.

We prefer email correspondence - it is much easier for us to respond quickly! Thank you!
