The Victorian House on the North Beach was built in 1890. It is one of the original beach houses in historic Monroe Park. In fact, the home is depicted on a plaque which is located at the Monroe Park just up the street. Although modern on the inside, it retains much of the charm of the period. It boasts 4 bedrooms (one on main floor), two and a quarter baths, sleeps 12, and has a large verandah where many guests have spent breezy Lake Michigan evenings reconnecting with family and friends, 180 degree views of Lake Michigan, window air conditioners, and a bathtub and shower in the upstairs bath.
There is a sitting area overlooking the beach with expansive views of the Lake from the master bedroom.
Enclosed screened porch off of the dining room, also facing the beach, affords additional lovely views. A full-sized futon was recently added to this porch,transforming it into a sleeping porch by night for those guests who want to capture cool Lake breezes and fall asleep to the gentle rolling waves of the Lake.
Gorgeous sunsets and within walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants. The Black River is just down the street. Easy walk to the North Beach lighthouse. Parking for 2 cars provided in carport. Beach stickers can be purchased from City Hall for additional parking in front of the house, or purchased daily from the pay station on the North Beach in front of the house.
There is a child's playground on the North Beach, and a kayak launch with kayak rentals on the beach was recently added by the City last Spring. The city also added a boardwalk leading to the Lake which is handicap accessible.
