Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

Whatever season you like best, this home is the perfect place for you! Whether it's the Trillium bloom in the spring, sunsets over Lake Michigan in summer, driving the Tunnel of Trees in the fall, or skiing and snowboarding in the winter, you can do it here.

This is a custom Town & Country Builders home, situated on 10 acres of trees on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. Breathtaking views of the lake from almost every room remind you why northern Michigan is such a coveted vacation spot. This home is over 3500 sq. ft., designed to let everyone spread out and relax!

The main floor includes a family room with vaulted ceiling, beautiful stone fireplace and comfortable furnishings. It joins an open dining area that seats 8, with additional seating for 5 at the granite bar in the kitchen. The large kitchen includes a Subzero refrigerator, Jenn Air 6 burner range top and pro-style hood, two ovens, dishwasher and large pantry. The master suite features a king size bed, stone fireplace, private balcony, and private bathroom with large tiled shower and double sinks.

There are two bedrooms, a full bath and a loft on the upper level. The loft has two chaises perfect for relaxing with a good book, while still enjoying the beautiful view of the lake.

The walk-out lower level features two bedrooms, each with two queen beds.There is also a full bath and a rec room with large screen TV, ping pong table, and game table that calls out for those evening games of Monopoly with the family!

There is a deck with dining set, and a patio off the lower level great for playing ladder ball or bean bag toss( games included!).

The highlight of a Lake Michigan vacation is, of course, going to the beach and dipping your toes in the lake.Take a walk down the bluff on our beautiful staircase.You can enjoy the views and relax on the sun deck or continue down to the shores of Lake Michigan. Enjoy walks, sunning, swimming and more on 300 ft. of private, sandy beach. (Beach chairs provided).

**Changes in the lake water levels can seriously affect the shoreline. Normal levels have a beach with sand, as our pictures show. High water levels can cover the sand, or erode it to expose the rocks underneath. Conditions along the shore are changed by the water and wind, and are a natural cycle that we do not control.**

This large, comfortable home is a great spot for entertaining or for family get-togethers, just 15 minutes from the great skiing of Boyne Highlands and Nub's Nob. A short drive north brings you to Cross Village for lunch at Legs Inn, while a 40 minute drive brings you to the Mackinaw Bridge. Head south to the great shopping, dining, beaches or marinas of Harbor Springs or Petoskey.

Great vacation home, beautiful location, great views, lots to do in the area

  • 5 of 5

Everyone loved this home and we had great weather all week. Did some rock hunting, swimming, campfires every night, shopping in town and more. Legs Inn in cross village had a really good menu, Pond Hill Farm was fun and only minutes from the house, found some nice Petoskey stones up in Wilderness State park and also Petoskey State Park. The 196 steps down to the water were just enough exercise to help work off all the eating and drinking. And the tunnel of trees road (highway 119) is one of the nicest drives in Michigan. we all brought our bikes and rode most of the Little Traverse Wheelway bike path that goes from Harbor Springs thru Petoskey and on into Charlevoix, also a beautiful ride. All in all a great week !

We are a growing family and we still didn't overwhelm this place!

  • 5 of 5

10 adults and 5 children. That is who we are and how many we have to contend with when we vacation on Lake Michigan. This is the place to do it in. The balcony across the front of the house was awesome. We watched meteors our first two nights there on that porch. The fire pit off of the walkout lower level was an evening gathering place. Sure there were a few steps to the beach, but there always is on the Tunnel of Trees. That being said, there was no stretch over 16 steps and none of us missed a moment at the water because of the stairs. Some of us swam at night as well as during the day. The sandy bottom made swimming a pleasure. Some of us are rock hounds and that urge was satisfied at the beach as well. It was a wonderful week and this place and this location were two of the biggest reasons why. We are already talking about possibly staying here next year!

Wonderful property! Very Scenic and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable stay. Plenty of room for our multiple family party of 13. Enjoyed cooking on the 6 Burner gas stove and eating meals on the deck with a view of Lake Michigan. Kids enjoyed playing in the lake, playing with the stones and boogie boarding the waves!

Great family home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fun week with our kids and grandkids in this beautiful, spacious and comfortable home. I enjoyed the quiet early in the morning, watching Lake Michigan while sipping my coffee. It was great to be on three levels since we had a new born, 5 weeks, and 4 grandkids under the age of 5.

We enjoyed the fire pit at night and went to the beach every day. We swam in the lake. It was a little tough getting over the rocks to get in the water but we managed. Good excercise for young and old to climb the stairs back up to the house.

Everything was clean and neat. Thank you for a great week.
