Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: The project of opening a vacation rental property began in the summer of 2009 and completed it in 2010. There are 2 townhomes. Each has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. They each have their own privacy. The neighborhood is very cozy. During the summer months we feel the breezes of Lake Michigan. And, can hear the wave action. And with 2 properties adjacent to one another we are able to offer vacations to larger families. Whereby vacationers would have 6 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 2 kitchens, 2 laundry rooms ............. - everything double. We are confident you will enjoy your stay. And look forward to being your host!!

Why the Owner Chose Beachwood-Bluffton, Muskegon, MI, USA:
I live near by and personally know how beautiful it is all year round in West Michigan. Whenever I am at Cherry House's I become more attached to the neighborhood and surroundings. On Sunday morings I have heard the church bells from the small church around the corner. The back yard fire-pit's are wonderful in the evenings. Walks to Pere Marquette Beach are fun and it's always a pleasure to walk the pier. Lakeside is a great place for shopping with candy store, art stores, book stores, Ghezzi's market, a couple small bars and hot dog restaurant. You are sure to enjoy this stay.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
This neighborhood is so entirely unique. Buster Keaton and his entourage summered here. There is history in the entire neighborhood. Each fall we have 'Buster Keaton Festival' with guides to inform you of all the Bluffton Neighborhood history. A Buster Keaton film festival. I personally know of people from California who travel here each year to enjoy the Buster Keaton Festival. Aside from the BK Festival there is plenty of activity in and around the Muskegon Area. Please check Muskegon County Visitor's Bureau for a list of festivals, activities, restaurants, theaters, shopping, grocery stores ........... The breeze, the waves, the lakes - Its all very, very lovely.
