AUGUST SPECIAL- August 5 through 19,2017 (4 day minimum rental). (Cleaning fee and damage deposit will apply) CALL KATHLEEN, 219-879-9900 Property manager to book your summer getaway. We are booking for 2018. Imagine a modern and luxurious mansion on the most stunning sandy beach in Michigan with enough room for the whole family and the convenience and dramatic views of being on the beach. Sandpiper caters to those seeking an atmosphere of refinement and exclusivity. Lifelong memories and treasured family traditions are created here.

With over 7,000 sq ft, 9 bedrooms, and 11 baths, Sandpiper offers your group both privacy and luxury. Each of the professionally decorated bedrooms has a queen size bed, en suite bath with Jacuzzi, a/c, fireplace, sitting area, and private screened porch (6 bedrooms face the lake with a stunning view). Fall asleep to the sound of waves splashing on the shore. The spacious and inviting living room has a fireplace and comfortable seating. The ample dining room seats up to 16. The screened porch facing the lake is the perfect spot to watch the surf and enjoy the summer breeze.

The kitchen is as beautiful as it is practical. The professional grade Wolf stove with double ovens and large griddle is a chefs dream. Two oversized Miele refrigerators will hold platters, cases of beverages, wine bottles, and much more. Two ice makers keep things cool. The oversized natural quartzite island is a piece of art with abundant room for gathering. The artisan Amish cabinets contain every serving piece and appliance you will need. The lake view from the kitchen is fabulous.

Bed sheets are fresh and luxurious. Bath and beach towels are abundant and fluffy. Beds are dreamy with memory foam mattresses. There is a washer and dryer available for your use. The property has a back up generator to ensure electricity is never lost.

Relax and enjoy the shade of the gazebo just steps from the beach. It's a leisurely 60 steps from your house to the wide private association beach. Beach chairs are provided. Grab one of your 6 bikes and explore the charming town. Winter is perfect for warming up by the cozy fireplace after skiing or a football game.

This beach paradise is only 75 minutes from Chicago. Close to winery's, casinos, outlet malls, Warren Dunes, antique stores, Acorn Theater, Redamak's, and Notre Dame. The restaurant and night life options are excellent, but you will find it hard to leave this oasis of lake, beach, and luxury. Sandpiper is truly unique and will not disappoint the most discerning traveler. Treat your family to the Lake Michigan lake vacation of your dreams.

The Dream House by the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of my family have just returned from our second visit to this beautiful property. The principal thing we would change is how quickly the time passes while we are there! Most rooms in this enormous, gracious home offer broad views of Lake Michigan. The descent (or, more importantly, the ascent) to the beach is the easiest one I've found after numerous trips to Lake Michigan. One of the features we most love is the screen porch that stretches the entire back of the house, allowing visitors to sleep unaffected by bugs and listening to the gentle sounds of the waves. Every bedroom has its own bath, so there's no compromising on shower schedules (and no lack of hot water!). The new kitchen is a marvel, with a huge island, two refrigerators, and 2 dishwashers (and lake views). The house manager is a dream of hospitality and organization, and the 2 visits (for the first floor) from the housekeeping staff are yet another treat. Please, just don't take our week!

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I'm a little reticent to write a glowing review because I want to keep this place a secret but eventually word will get out what an absolutely perfect place this home is for a Lake Michigan vacation. Lewis and Elizabeth are simply the perfect hosts and have created the most comfortable and welcoming vacation home imaginable. They have thought of every detail to make the stay stress-free and the home is simply exceptional. We're so glad to met them and had the opportunity to stay in their wonderful vacation home. We had 18 people and never once felt crowded. The kitchen has everything needed to cook and serve meals for even 18 adults. The views of the lake, the beach access, the amenities on site such as beach chairs, floating things, bikes, ping pong...the list goes on and on...amazing. We will absolutely return and cant wait. Already plotting our next getaway.

Beautiful home, stunning view, perfect getaway for the family!

  • 5 of 5

This home is so perfect for a family gathering! All rooms lovely! The kitchen was fully equipped for a large group and what a treat to gather in the morning, with our coffee, looking at the view of the lake!

When it was rainy one day, we visited Dablon winery, with a beautiful tasting room, only one year old. Also, walked at Galien Park, 5 minute drive.

Enjoyed, swimming in the lake, playing games in the backyard, basketball in the front yard, and riding around the neighborhood with the provided bicycles. Dinner at Timothy's was a great night, as well!

And we took many photos for the yearly Christmas photo of the family!

Kathleen is so wonderful to organize your trip to this home, and thank you, from the whole family! From the prompt replies at the beginning, to meeting us at the house, to being available anytime, and then connecting for our goodbye.

There is no question that we will return, the only question is how soon!

A Great Place to Make Memories

  • 5 of 5

This recent stay was our 3rd or 4th at Sandpiper. It is simply put "a great place for a family vacation". We had 22 people and 5 families and there is enough room for everyone. The individual suites are nice. Being right on the beach is fantastic for the kids(we had 9) and we cooked most meals in a well supplied kitchen that is updated. All in all, we would recommend staying here to any family for a wonderful experience. Kathleen the property mgr is terrific to work with. Steve R.

Five couples and our children stay here every year and look forward to it all year. The place is perfect in location and structure. The property manager Kathleen is an absolute joy to work with. I highly recommend staying here.
