Western Lake Michigan Shoreline is one of the best kept secrets . Its natural beauty is unmatched . Yet there is much to do. Festivals and Art fairs aplenty. Museums downtown, Waterpark /Amusement Park within a 20 minute drive. It's also a Charter fishing, windsurfing, and kiteboarders paradise. The Pier Marquette pier with its boardwalk, bike path and miles of beach is within minutes of our cottage (you can fish on the pier too!!). Cruise dinner dances, the Ferry to Milwaukee and quaint lakeside communities are nearby too.
