SEPTEMBER $630/NIGHT, 3-night min

LAKEFRONT HOME WITH PRIVATE BEACH AND ASSOCIATION TENNIS COURT!

This 1920 cottage was built by a Great Lakes ship captain. It has been in the same family 80 years. The cottage sits on a bluff hanging over the beach, a mere 56 steps below. Watch sunsets (and the kids) from a screened porch perched above the beach.

A few weeks in this cottage allows you to step back to a slower, simpler time.

The beach offers the finest, whitest sand in the world and provides miles of beautiful barefoot walking.

This is the warm, clean side of Lake Michigan. Lolling and floating in the lake in the heat of summer is an unbeatable experience.

30 yards down the private lane is a tennis court shared by you and a few neighbors on a friendly first-come, first-served basis.

Four bedrooms are located in the main house; the 5th (with bath) is in a guest house next to the garage. Both main house and guest house are air conditioned.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1920

About the owner: We are three siblings in our 60's who grew up summering in this cottage. It was bought by our grandfather in the 1920's. Our mother grew up there as well; summertime she now lives two houses away on the same lane.

Why the Owner Chose Lakeside, MI, USA:
We are three siblings in our 60's who grew up summering in this cottage. It was bought by our grandfather in the 1920's. Our mother grew up there as well; summertime she now lives two houses away on the same lane. It has hosted many of our family's weddings and reunions. This cottage is a cottage. It is well lived-in. It is not fancy. But it loves an active family, and tolerates moderate normal use well. The echoes of decades of joy linger.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It is uniquely tranquil and beautiful. It is a place to create your own fun, whether in the lake, on the beach, on the tennis court, or on nearby golf courses.
