House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
My husband Michael is a retired landscape business owner and I am the perennial 'mult-tasker' having raised 3 children, helped with the landscape business, being a lifestyle and job coach and running our vacation home business.
Eileen purchased this House in 2003
Why Eileen chose Manistee
Our family of 5 had been vacationing in northern Michigan since 1985 and longed to have a place of our own. In the summer of 2003, we found a lovely road off the highway that have wonderful beaches and wasn't 'touristy'. We looked at a couple of properties but they didn't fit our budget. Then that fall, I found a listing online and we decided to drive up (300 miles) and couldn't believe how perfect it was for us. The only way we could afford buying it was to rent it out and as they say, the rest is history!
What makes this House unique
The greatest benefit to staying at our home called 'Heaven' is because that's the feeling many people get whenever visiting! Because the property is wider rather than deep, the privacy and view from the home is amazing. It offers feelings of tranquility and is a true respite from the business of life. (It's a nice home too!)

Lake Michigan beachside house
Great place and great view. Couldn't have asked to stay in a better house.
Fall weekend getaway
Perfect view of Lake Michigan, just what we were looking for.
Myself and my 4 cousins enjoyed our stay. Sitting on the lower deck with a glass of wine was the order of the day. I love Lake Michigan. Ease of entering, great kitchen, bedrooms and places to sit and converse with one another. A great gathering place for the 5 of us as we all live in different parts of the state. Thank you Eileen. You have been wonderful. Joann Cook
