Lake Michigan Beachfront 4 bedroom Home with Fantastic Lake Views and huge beach
average rating of 5.0 based on 7 reviews

This is a beautiful home which is well maintained and nicely decorated. views are fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place for sleeping 9 older adults. Living room, dining area, kitchen space are spacious and functional. Redone 2 sided fireplace is gorgeous. Hope it's functional next year. All bedrooms are spacious and attractive. Bathrooms are well appointed. Porch is great with lots of seating and a nice place to eat. Great view from there. Very easy access to the beach. The beach grass is beautiful even in a storm.

Our wishlist is the following:

1) Really want rubber mats in both showers. Surface is slippery

2) replace oven.

3) A few extra bath towels and kitchen towels

4) table or floor lamps in living room. We like to read.

This is the best place that we've stayed in our 21 years of getting together as a group.

Thanks Stephen for taking such good care of us. I highly recommend this property. Owner takes a lot of pride in his property and is takes care of any problems promptly.

PS. The coolest 2 drawer dishwasher ever!!

Lovely beach house

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly lovely beach house. My extended family stayed here for a week and it slept 8 comfortably. There is a very private view from every room of beach grasses and the lake. Great kitchen that can have 2 people cooking at the same time. Plenty of places to sit both inside and outside. We also liked the gaming nook which is great for playing cards. There is a nearby community tennis court and we played every day and never had to wait. We would definitely stay again!

Great House. Great Time.

  • 5 of 5

This home really checks every box for a relaxing week . Terrific views, private sandy beach is only a small flight of stairs away. Every night the sunset was just awesome. Very clean and inviting house, it has all amenities you need. All rooms inside are very comfortable. Outside, the wrap around deck has comfortable outdoor furniture. The master bedroom has a walkout deck that gives even more great views. 5 to 7 minute drive from downtown Manistee restaurants. Close to golf courses too. Easy day trip to Sleeping Bear Dunes/Traverse City area if you desire. Owners are extremely nice and make your stay as best as possible! Highly recommended place.

Beautiful home, Spectacular Views, Everything We Could Have Hoped For

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are recent empty nesters and we wanted to take a long weekend get-away after our youngest returned to college. We rented Steve's home and it was just what we had imagined for a timeout for ourselves. The home is beautiful, spacious, comfortable, clean, and has absolutely stunning views of the lake. The pictures don't capture the magic of the home. It was a treat to wake up every morning to the sound of the waves and the views of the lake and was a treat to toast to the sunset every night on the chairs that overlook the lake. We had private beach access where we took long walks along the beach during the day. My husband also enjoyed some golf during the day at the many golf spots in the area. Steve was an excellent host and made us feel welcome. He met us at the home and provided us with all the information that we needed to make our visit perfect. We would highly recommend this home. We have such wonderful memories and we look forward to coming back with the rest of family to share this special spot with them. Thank you Steve!

Beautiful home, great location and wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

Steve, we had a wonderful time at your home on Lake Michigan in Manistee. The views from the rooms were spectacular, we loved being right on the beach and lake. Even got to see a bald eagle fly over head. Your home had plenty of room, everything was very clean and well kept, beautiful kitchen and had everything we needed. Really enjoyed sitting on the porch relaxing. The sunsets were absolutely gorgeous. Sleeping with the windows open at night and hearing the waves made for a great night sleep. We would definitely would do this again and would recommend to others.

Beautiful property and spot on the lake - great choice

  • 5 of 5

Really wonderful spot – gorgeous views and property. We had a mini family reunion of sorts at the house on the 4th of July week of this year and everyone just loved their time here. Stephen was great to deal with in set up, meeting us to walk through property, and finally closing out rental and deposit. The location is just perfect– outside of town enough to be quiet, but easy access to all the delightful spots and things to do in Manistee. The house itself is right on beach making back and forth throughout the day easy (especially with kids.) Low bluff so not a tremendous amount of stairs to climb each time. We were with both small children and seniors on this family vacation and all of them had no problem. The amenities of the association were also nice – the small playground for the kids, basketball court, etc. The house interior was beautiful and new. It felt open and comfortable. The 4th bedroom is more a second lower-level living space with a bed than a “bedroom” (no door, closest bathroom next floor and closest shower 2 floors up, and passes through to the garage) but worked for our purposes. Overall a great spot and would recommend as a great place to stay.
