"Relax on Lake Michigan" in my 3br/2ba Waterfront private ranch home...more than a cabin or cottage...a real Lake Michigan paradise! Miles of Sandy Beach with amazing view of the lake. Enjoy our Sunroom, great Hickory Kitchen, living room with 55" Roku tv, a Master bedroom with private bath plus 2 other bedrooms, one with a queen and the 3rd with a queen and twin bunks. Even a HOT TUB on the deck with a view of the lake! *May only be seasonal. Inquire.
Have a bonfire at our Fire pit steps from the house! Perfect way to end your day, watching the sun set or the stars rise.
Our deeded private beach is shared with neighbors. Access is down our stairs (65 steps) through/over/in front of the creek to the north. (time of year and amount of rain affects size and depth of the creek)
Want more excitement? Then gear up for river trips, charter fishing, world-class golf, CASINO excitement or even an airplane ride. With all there is to do - or not do - this will be the spot you will want to return again and again.

My husband Michael has just retired after owning his own landscape business in the Chicago suburbs and I am the perennial 'mult-tasker' having worked as an actor in Chicago, helping 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 Township
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!)

Nice view and cozy Heaven
The location is perfect, you can enjoy lake view whenever you want. The sunroom is extremely great because you can enjoy the view while stay comfortably inside.
The rooms are spacious, it's enough for 6-8 people.
Our host Eileen was very easy to reach and willing to provide assistance.
I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and would like to come back again.
The Perfect Getaway
The name of this place truly says it all--HEAVEN! Our first vacation was perfect, as Eileen was so accommodating and made our stay absolutely wonderful. The place was clean and tidy, and almost every room had a gorgeous view of the lake! The bathrooms and decorations were very modernized and up to our standards. The private deck was perfect for watching and hearing the relaxing sounds of the waves while drinking coffee and wine, and the beach was amazing for a nice romantic walk. The hot tub made the stay even more relaxing, and was perfect since we went while the weather was colder. Even though the weather was colder, the interior was very cozy. There is also a Meijer and other grocery stores very close to the house, and other sight seeing places and activities in a cute little town nearby! I would most definitely recommend this place, and we will return for sure! :)
I'm so happy "Heaven" exceeded your expectations! We look forward to having you return.
Heaven is the perfect name
A quiet lakeside property with all the amenities. The sunroom, even on a cloudy day, is a great spot to lounge or eat breakfast or lunch. Our hosts were on the spot to answer any little problem we might have, and that is a huge plus.
Relaxing in Heaven
We really enjoyed our vacation in Heaven! Very nice home and excellent location. We loved the deck over the lake. We drank our morning coffee there and our evening beverages!
The lake. Is beautiful as well as all the wild life. We saw deer, Eagles, loons, a river otter, rabbits and chipmunks :)
We loved watching the freighters go by as well as the sailboats!
We certainally will return!

Wonderful Weekend Lake Trip
My friends and I stayed at this wonderful lakefront beachfront property over Memorial Day weekend. By far the best part of this place is the view. My best memory of the trip was sitting in the hot tub and watching the sun set over the lake followed by star gazing.
The place was clean and well maintained. The photos were accurate, except for the TV which they updated to a nice flat screen. The beach was easily accessible and having the hot tub was a welcome contrast to the lake's cold water. One minor grips is that the furniture could be updated, but overall it was in good condition and the kitchen was well equip. One delightful aspect was how close the lake house was to a good grocery store, which saved us as we forgot to bring a few things.
Overall this is a great lake house and would recommend it.
