Property description

This historic house in the heart of beautiful Empire was built in 1884. The kitchen, bathrooms, and living room addition was added in 2007. It is bright and sunny with vaulted ceilings, skylights, and many windows. The kitchen is fully equipped and has granite counter tops. Each bedroom has a queen bed. The house is located within one block of the grocery, post office, library (computers and high speed internet), the Friendly Tavern restaurant, an ice cream shop, gift and antique shops, and the Empire beach, where people gather each evening for the sunset.

The nearby Sleeping Bear sand dune is accessible by foot or car.
