Overview

About the property

House, 9 Bedrooms + Loft, 9 Baths, (Sleeps 22)

Modern amenities with a lodge atmosphere, designed for gatherings of friends and family. Every room has a full view of the exclusive beach and lakefront. Expansive great-room features a fireplace and massive dining table.

This magnificent custom built home is a year-round lakefront beach house perfectly designed for gatherings of family and friends. With soaring beams reminiscent of the hull of a ship, the impressive living room opens to multiple levels and balconies. The most striking feature of this superbly built house is the living room with its soaring 30-foot ponderosa pine curved custom ceiling beams.

The room features a wood burning stone fireplace that stretches to the ceiling. A massive moose & elk antler chandelier hangs over a 20-foot extendable table. Wrought iron wall sconces surround the room.

The floors are made of porcelain tile and a luxurious inset carpet with borders that encompass the lounge area. Beyond the floor-to-ceiling windows is a magnificent view of the beach. Watch the sun walk across the sky and into beautiful sun sets from the living room.

The outdoor stone patio not only overlooks the beach, but is also outfitted with a gas heater, wood Adirondack chairs and fire pit. It is a relaxing sanctuary for stargazing and a convenient place to roast marshmallows or grill. The beach has endless miles for scenic walks in either direction.

As the sun disappears, the beach can be used for night-time bonfires and easy star-gazing. During the day, the 5 acres provide nature walks on paths. Lake Michigan's clean waters are fun for swimming and water activities for all ages.

This is the perfect family get-away house and location, providing the perfect setting to catch up on all those books.

Reunion on Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5

Although this was our first time renting a house through HomeAway, we couldn't have been more pleased. The house, the location, the homeowners, and even the weather exceeded our expectations for our much anticipated family reunion. We would recommend this property to anyone!

I would also commend the homeowners for anticipating the needs of their guests. The home was spectacular with all possible needs, wants, and desires anticipated and met.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

What a spectacular week we spent with our children and grandchidren! The location was perfect so that some of the family (all 20 of us) were able to come and go.SInce the weather was perfect, most of our time was spent on "our own" private beach.Every item we could have wanted was provided (and you should see the spice drawer!!).To be able to seat everyone at ONE dining room table was amazing.Everything in the entire house was in pristine condition.Don't know how Kathy does it?Have told many friends about it but I hope not too many so that we can't find a week to return.

Wonderful Experience - AGAIN!

  • 5 of 5

My whole family stayed here for the second time. We range in age from newborn to 65, and everything in between. Just like in 2013, the experience was fantastic. The house is so well maintained. It is an amazing structure. The owners are very responsive. Thank you, Kathy, for providing such a great place to create family memories.

Magnificient and luxurious beachfront property

  • 5 of 5

We rented this outstanding house for a family reunion. We were 6 families (total of 19, all adults) and the house still has ample of space for all of us. The kitchen is well equiped and spacious, and there are 2 refrigerators to store enough foods for a big crowd.The inside is immaculate, and tastefully decorated. The house also comes with many amenities (there is an honor system whereby one leaves some tea, coffee, toilet papers etc behind so the next guests do not have to immediately rush out to get these items) . The private beach is only yards away, and very accessible (no stones or steps). There are 2 places for bonfires at night to create fond memories. The owners are very friendly, accomodating, responsive, and do want to make guests feel comfortable and welcome. The initial paperwork can seem daunting at first, but if one reads the lists carefully and once you are at the house you will realize that all the "rules" are extremely reasonable and necessary to protect such a marvelous property. I would be somewhat concerned if you have little kids as the house has a lot of very nice and expensive art pieces throughout. Basically treat this house carefully and thoughtfully as if it were your own, and everything will be fine. Enjoy the tranquility, and the luxury of this tucked away paradise. Yet one is not far at all from town. A big supermarket (Meijer) as well as Walmart are only 15 minutes away. We highly recommend this place for all responsible and thoughtful potential renters

Another Fantastic Year

  • 5 of 5

I am a regular VRBO renter, yet this is the first time I have felt compelled to write a review. My family has spent one week during four separate summers at this lovely home. We go back because of an unparalleled combination of its big size, walk-out beach access, like-new conditions, and responsive management. Extra touches like a dinning table that accommodates about 20, arcade games for the kids, beach umbrellas, towels, lots of dishes, and 15-minute proximity to Meijers/Walmart really add to the ease of our stay. This year the Wi-Fi was upgraded, adding immensely to our experience given how much we depend on our electronics these days. We have already signed up for 2015! One year we broke a beach umbrella in the wind and the owners didn't charge us for it.

I have no qualms providing a 5-star (Excellent) rating and I hope you enjoy your stay too -- as long as you didn't take my preferred week ;)

Perfect Home for Large Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family took our first ever "big family vacation." We had 19 people total ranging from 3 months old to 64. What a stunning property! The pictures do not do this home justice. No expense was spared nor was any detail overlooked. This is the gold standard in luxury vacation beach homes. The house was so comfortable and clean. The beds were wonderful. It is obvious a great deal of time and consideration went into this home. The home is rivaled only by the beach and gorgeous sunsets. The kids had a ball playing on the beach all day. Kudos to the owners for building and maintaining such a great property where beautiful memories are made.
