"Relax on Lake Michigan" - House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 4.5 Baths, sleeps 13
The perfect spot to "relax on lake michigan"!

This house was an accident! We had purchased the home next door in 2005 and a family member bought the lot this house sits on. After 2 years and finally getting approvals and permits, they decided to sell and we took over ownership. "Relax on Lake Michigan" is what it's all about! From the beginning we wanted to build the perfect casual yet nicely appointed retreat for ourselves and others. We sold the adjacent home called Sunset Shores and manage it so both homes can be rented together for groups up to 25.
Eileen purchased this House in 2007
Why Eileen chose Manistee Township
"Relax on Lake Michigan" is what this house is all about! We love Lake Michigan! We rented Lake Michigan vacation homes for over 18 years before we bought and became stewards of the lake. We love the sounds, the smells, the views and most especially the calm, peaceful feeling of being up north.
What makes this House unique
This home is loved by all because it is surrounded by trees yet right on the water. The details are top quality and everyone loves having their own bath. It is really the perfect spot to "relax on Lake Michigan"!

Great location unmatched views
The house is stunning and the views of the lake are breathtaking from all rooms. Nice quiet area close to town shopping and restaurants.
Fall Break Retreat
My family stayed here over fall break. The weather was cool, but this home is outstanding. It is located directly on Lake Michigan and there are fantastic views of the lake from every room. The home has every convenience. My family enjoyed being outside and warming up by the fireplace in the great room. We took advantage of the hot tub too. The property owner is fantastic to work with and is very attentive. My wife is already planning a return trip.
Eagle Shores Stay
Stay at Eagle shores for a long weekend with friends. The home was comfortable and WELL stocked. The views and sunsets were breathtaking, would recommend this home in an instant and can't wait to go back.
Thank you so much for your kind words and for wanting to return! It's always a pleasure sharing our home with others who enjoy it as much as we do.
Luxury and comfort
My girlfriend and I get together once a year to catch up and we're always looking for just the right place to relax and enjoy our time together. Eagle Shores fit the bill! The home was perfect. Beds were comfy, the kitchen was well appointed, and there is a perfect fireplace for the cooler evenings and the setting could not have been better. We stayed here in November and we wouldn't hesitate to return at that time of year. The whitecaps were beautiful to watch (is there ever a bad day to watch Lake Michigan?) Eileen was the perfect hostess as well. We'll be back!
Thanks so much for your kind words and we are so happy you enjoyed your time on the lake. We look forward to having you return!
Beautiful home, short walk to beach
Wonderful, modern, spacious home that is so close to the shore you can hear the waves. Group of 12 had more than enough room. Plenty of appliances, tableware, silverware, etc. Large deck with great view of the beach. Great beach for walking. A little "stony" in the water so had to be careful walking into the water. Renters need to respect next group and clean feet before entering each time. Upon arrival, a little sandy on the floors and rugs, and a little dusty on lamps, tables and under furniture but that is beach life!
Thanks for your comments. Regarding the rocks, we've owned since 2005 and this is the first year any rocks have been exposed on the beach...surprised me too! I'm up here now and will post pics to my website. Our beach went from 100% sand in 2015 to 80% this season. Ah, life on a Lake Michigan!
WOW, MUST stay here again.... LOVE IT!
A group of 14 stayed at the home during the New Year’s weekend and enjoyed every minute of this gorgeous, welcoming and cozy home. It was sparkling clean and had all the amenities one could wish for and then some. The views from every room, breathtaking! Although there were 14 of us (and I am not one for crowds) you never felt crowded, the home is huge with enough privacy for all. Visualize the fireplace, view of the lake and woods all in one glance, remarkable! Truly a great get away and only 4.5 hours from Chicago. The drive was very nice, passed by quickly as the scenery on the drive was so nice and relaxing, we can feel the stress slipping away from everyday life the closer we got to our destination and once we arrived, it was like being miles away from reality, which we can all use from time to time. The best part was it was not far at all and you can do it as often as you like. The price was very very reasonable compared to other place which did not offer half of the luxuries of this home / property. The owners are extremely nice to deal with, courteous and have thought of everything you could wish for which makes the stay even more enjoyable. They have everything there and I mean everything, from kitchen supplies to outdoor supplies / activities and games. No words can describe the feeling of entering the home and seeing that view, it truly is a MUST see, experience for yourself to appreciate the beauty of the place. I hope to say here again and very soon. The town itself is close, great stores and restaurants, not that I ever wanted to leave the home It is a nearby paradise at a fraction of the cost of other places in MI, IL or WI! Can’t wait to stay here again! In closing, a huge shot out to the kind, generous and extremely humble owners who opened their home to us and made our stay so pleasant, relaxing and fun. Great way to start the New Year, making amazing memories with the family!
