Property description

Come spend a relaxing week/weekend away from the stress of city life at this large summer home that sits on over 1/2 acre of waterfront property, including sandy beach frontage. Whether you prefer spending your time sun bathing on the beach, fishing for blue gill and bass, or swimming in the 150 acre lake, your day is sure to be well spent.

Only a short 3.5 hour drive from downtown Chicago, Hastings is convenient for a weekend getaway. The house has 2 large bedrooms and 2 large family rooms, and can easily accommodate 10 adults with the pullout couches and futon.

This property is very kid-friendly as well. The lake has a sand bottom and slopes gently, providing a safe area for kids to swim and play in the sand. There is a large yard next to the beach that's perfect for soccer/wiffle ball/volleyball or just chasing fireflies. When it's time for lunch, the large side deck provides a great view of the lake so you can grill while still being able to watch the kids at the beach. The second floor deck offers wonderful sunset views of the lake as well.

In case you forgot to bring anything, the town is only a 5 minute drive to the grocery store, a movie theater, a micro brewery and many quaint shops.

Come enjoy this wonderful property!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We've lived our entire lives in and around Chicago and soon after having our first child, we knew it would make family vacations much simpler if we had a place to escape to on a moment's notice.

Why the Owner Chose Hastings, MI, USA:
We chose this property because it was within a 4 hour drive from our home north of Chicago. Leach lake was also the perfect sized lake for us because it's large enough to enjoy tubing and fishing, but small enough that we don't have to worry about it ever being too crowded. The size of the sandy beach (125ft) was also a key factor so children could have somewhere to play near the water.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Waterfront property with large front yard and private sand beach. Large side yard with horseshoe pit and deck. Downtown Hastings is a 5 minute drive and includes quaint shops, a movie theater, a microbrewery and a great coffee shop. Only a 3 minute drive to the Hastings Country Club (public) for a scenic and challenging round of golf.
