About the property

Lakefront House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths

This lakefront house is a breath of fresh air--clean, spacious, bright and newly furnished with comfortable clean lines and modern decor.

Sliding glass doors run the length of this 4,000 sq ft house for lake breezes and commanding lake views throughout--with no bluff, just a gentle slope from the back deck--to the shared private beach or pool.

A large central living space (29 x 28 ft) features limestone floors and a flick-of-the-switch gas fireplace, with furniture arrangements for everything from cocktail/conversation area to lounging on the sleek Italian leather sectional, or just taking it all in on the twin swivel glider chairs.

A fully stocked kitchen has natural cherry cabinets and large pantry--and provides all new utensils, shiny pots and pans, and plenty of bar glasses to suit every need.

A deck with adirondack chairs, rockers, and a swinging bench seat accommodate the entire group. To your right, you can overlook the pool, hot tub and club house.

Upstairs, the master bedroom provides a king size bed, with large bath (walk in glass shower) and jacuzzi spa tub, walk in closet, and large covered deck overlooking Lake Michigan. The guest room has a queen bed, private deck and sliding glass doors that can be left open on calm nights for gentle lake breezes.

A third upstairs bedroom offers two twin beds, also with lake views. All new, luxury mattresses in every bed.

Downstairs (basement) contains a boys' bunk room--two bunks, each with a double below and twin on top--in one huge room. This level also contains a full bath (walk in shower), and a pool table/ ping pong table (conversion top).

Rental periods of one full week or more.

Can't Wait to Return

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was thoroughly enjoyed and difficult to leave when the time came. We had no trouble at all feeling instantly at home, which was not difficult with the many comfortable and beautiful spaces in the home and near the property. The views and sunsets were memorizing and easily rivaled any endless ocean view I've seen. Our young children enjoyed the wonderful pool and baby pool as well as the spacious lawn area descending to the beach. We enjoyed strolling the beach looking for treasures on foot, and exploring the coastline via kayak. My husband found the workout facility useful and I enjoyed quiet morning runs around the community. The tennis courts were also a great bonus. We enjoyed cooking-in many evenings which was not difficult with the fantastic kitchen. The owner is kind and accommodating and has opened the home in a way that is very welcoming, providing everything needed for a memorable and truly relaxing getaway, from a fantastic book collection, to games, entertainment options, and outdoor equipment.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect getaway for grandparents hosting their married daughter and family. Our son-in-law is an executive chef and the kitchen was heavenly for him. The views from the house are spectacular--ever-changing like Monet's "Haystacks." The children, ages 3 and 5, were delighted with the beach, the kayak, the pool, the playground, and the tennis court. The separate TV room is great, and every type of tech necessity is provided. The owner is most accommodating! We are so grateful she shares her lovely lake house. Bit O' Swiss Bakery is nearby--do not miss it! Bread & Bar in Benton Harbor was our favorite for dinner.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent location for a family vacation. The home is even better than the pictures (and the pictures are pretty good). You have lake views from nearly every window which is fantastic. The layout on the main floor is perfect--TV away from the dining area and family area. The downstairs is perfect for kids. We have stayed in several homes for family trips in Michigan. This was our favorite. The owner is also incredibly helpful and responsive which is a huge bonus.

This is a fantastic home to rent. It is located in St. Joseph, Michigan about 8 minutes from the town. It is in a beautiful neighborhood on Lake Michigan! We rented this home for 2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed it. The house is nicely decorated and has all of the amenities you need. It is an upscale home! There are many things to do in St. Joseph and surrounding towns! I would definitely rent this home next year!

Outstanding House

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we were looking for and more!

Owner was very pleasant, both to communicate with and deal with.

Home was everything it was advertised as, spacious, great kitchen, nice and clean. The views and evening sunsets were awesome.

We happened to be there for a week to play in a golf tournament in Benton Harbor, and this was the perfect space for our group. We were six adults in all, and there was plenty of room for us and more if necessary.

Didn't really experience any of the local eateries, we were bar-b-queing on the back porch, relaxing and enjoying the beautiful sunsets!!

Hoping to return again someday, would definitely stay here again!!

You couldn't ask for more! This house has a great location. It is close to the beach and pool. It has fabulous views, especially for sunsets. Wonderful views to wake up to as well.
