Property description

A perfect 'honeymoon getaway' for any stage in your relationship, our cozy and romantic A-frame is situated one hundred feet from our large Tudor A-frame with a stand of cedar in between for privacy. It is old-world styled to match, furnished in antiques, with a separate drive and beach area.

Inside, it is an efficiency-type with tumbled marble floor, electric heat, a Queen Anne futon that makes into a very comfortable double bed, a combination sink-stove-refrigerator/freezer unit, and kitchen area. There is a half-bath with built in vanity and granite counter top and an attached classy stone and timber private hot outdoor two-person shower.

There is a large stone and cedar deck overlooking Lake Michigan, complete with deck chairs and an elaborate corner bench and table for outside dining. The view from there is spectacular; and from the beach a few steps away, you can see Charlevoix, Beaver Island, and the entrance to the Straits of Mackinaw.

M119, at the top of our bluff, is extremely popular with bicyclists and car buffs who never tire of the 'green tunnel of trees' with magnificent views of the lake between Harbor Springs and the sand dunes of Sturgeon Bay north of Cross Village. Evenings will provide some of the most beautiful sunsets you have ever seen and occasional northern-light spectacles best viewed near the warmth of a beach fire.
