Why the Owner Chose Beachwood-Bluffton, Muskegon, MI, USA:
In historic Bluffton neighborhood, the best location in the City of Muskegon, sandwiched on a narrow peninsula between Lake Michigan beach and Muskegon Lake. Eagles Nest cottage is the only rental cottage on famous Pigeon Hill, where neighbor children play on the huge dunes and pigeons roosted. Although it's only 12 stair steps from street level, no one else lives up there, and even the air seems different -- fresh, and on a windy day you can hear Lake Michigan waves. Miles of forest dune is the view north, and it's all yours while you are there. Eagles Nest has the best of both worlds--away from it all on the dune, and just 12 steps down, you have access to all fun, beaches, highways, necessities, and quick trips to other beach towns.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Shady patio 2 is on a forested dune where you have privacy and feel like you are living in nature yet can see your parked car below. Just 12 steps down where your car is parked is the friendly neighborhood, so you have the best of both worlds--living in nature and conveniences of the city. Furniture chosen by award-winning designer for comfort and charm.
