About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Open April 2016, closed for winter. 60' of private frontage on Lower Herring Lake, sandy beach, gradual drop-off, private dock w/ ladder, swim raft, with access (parking pass) by boat or car to miles of beautiful, private beach on Lake Michigan. Notice the lack of development on the shoreline. This is pristine, private, undeveloped beach, which Jerry Dennis said in the June 2006 Traverse Magazine article, The Greatest Walkabout, 'It is surely one of the most pristine beaches in the world, broad and clean, with elaborate back dunes blending into forests. The beach was saved from development by the Noble family. We only rent by the week in July and August.
We are 1/4 mile from the paved road, very quiet and peaceful. We also have a 3 bedroom cottage on the lake for rent 3 doors down (vrbo 398063). 12 French doors overlook the lake, cherry wood floors, granite counters, new deck, Netflix TV. Watch postcard perfect sunsets over either lake. We are 6 miles south of Frankfort, 5 miles north of Arcadia.

Upper level has great room, 3 bedrooms (queen, double, 2 twins, and 1 bath, lower level has 1 bedroom (queen), den with trundle (2 twins) and 2 baths. Herring Lake connects to Lake Michigan via a shallow, sandy stream.
Amenities: All linens provided, canoe, life jackets, paddles, granite kitchen, fully equipped, gas stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, satellite TV, WIFI, DVD/VCR player, beach chairs, water softener, firewood for beach fires on Lake Michigan, grill, 50 kid DVDs and grown up movies, games, deck table with 4 chairs.
Miles and miles of rails to trails bike paths in the area, running between Elberta, Frankfort, Beulah and Thompsonville. Kayak and sailboat rental available right on the lake, delivered to your beach.

I'll send a detailed list of things to do, complete with golfing, fishing, shopping, water skiing, sailing, kayaking, hiking, biking, pick-your-own strawberries and cherries, flying tours, Indian casino's, restaurants, sights, movies etc.
