Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are an active family who loves the outdoors. Generations of our families have enjoyed southwest Michigan and we decided to buy a home there in 2005. Some of our favorite things to do are go for walks on the beach, hike the Tower Hill sand dune, go fruit picking, browse antique stores on Red Arrow Highway and find joy in the simple pleasures of life. We hope you enjoy our home and create your own memories there.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Walk right into Warren Dunes State Park and enjoy miles of beaches and hiking trails.
