About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Cedar Ridge Cottage is a charming home with deeded access to 750 feet of private association beach on Lake Michigan. While this is not a waterfront property, it is just a short walk down the stairs to the beach.

Perfect for families, we offer 3 bedrooms, two with queen beds, the third with 1 set of bunks and a full size futon. The bedrooms share a full bath with double sinks, and there is a half bath on the first floor. Full amenities include dishwasher, microwave, cable TV, , blu-ray player, hi-speed internet with Wi-Fi access, indoor and outdoor dining areas with gas and charcoal grills. Lounge on the spacious deck, or gather on one of the four covered porches. For late night (or any time) conversation, there is a comfortable, screened in porch off the two back bedrooms.

Start your morning with coffee in the Adirondack chairs on the front porch, then head off down the stairs to the beach. You can soak up the sun, swim in the pristine Lake Michigan water, or walk along the miles of quiet lakefront. Be sure to enjoy the beautiful sunset, and after dark, a campfire in the outdoor fireplace (don't forget the S'mores!) If rain should dampen the day, there are plenty of games, puzzles and video games to keep the kids happy, and lots of DVD's and books for the grownups.

As we are located halfway between Silver Lake and Pentwater, there are plenty of activities to enjoy within 5 miles in either direction. To the north, the historic village of Pentwater offers fun and fine dining, fishing charters, art galleries, gift shops and wonderful clothing stores up and down the main street. Don't miss one of the finest candy stores in all of Michigan! Pentwater has an amazing array of festivals, weekly farmer's market, fireworks, band concerts and art fairs to make any time of the year an enjoyable time to visit.

Silver Lake offers many activities, from go-karts to jet skis to pontoon boats to miniature golf. For the more adventurous, take a ride or drive your own vehicle on the Silver Lake Sand Dunes, the largest ORV park in the U.S. And don't forget to visit the historic Little Sable Lighthouse!

We welcome you to spend a week or two in our home and enjoy the house, beach, sunset walks and many activities around the area. Whatever you choose to do, we know you will have a great time!
