ONLY TWO WEEKS LEFT FOR SUMMER, 2018: SATURDAYS, , AUGUST 11 & AUGUST 18. A FOUR NIGHT AVAILABLE JUNE 19-23, 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.

                                                                Christine H.

                                                                Our family stayed at the Sandpiper Inn at the end of July 2017 to celebrate my parents' 80th birthdays. We had a fantastic time, so much so, that my Dad wants to rent it again in 2 years. It is very clean, accommodates, 18 people very well, and is in a great location.

                                                                As most of the area beaches in the area are struggling to keep their beaches with Lake Michigan being very high, this is a bit of an issue at Sandpiper as well. I would suggest that this photo with the beach stretching out is a few years old. Getting to the beach can be challenging because of the erosion, especially for the elderly. We were able to enjoy full beach days, though, and if you walk a little to the left or right, the beach is wider. Also, there is a great sunning area on the bluff which can accommodate everyone.

                                                                The kitchen is amazing, fully stocked with all serving and eating needs. We cooked a lot and the kitchen was definitely our central gathering place. We had a few meals catered by Classic Catering, they were very accommodating and provided good food.

                                                                Our entire family would highly recommend Sandpiper Inn for your vacation needs! Have fun!

                                                                Fantastic week

                                                                Brian B.

                                                                This was our third year in a row staying here. It is always one of the best weeks of our year. Will be back next year for sure. Just an amazing getaway.

                                                                The stay was amazing, great accommodations, and beautiful views

                                                                Kathy M.

                                                                Great place. Perfect for a large group. Would highly recommend it to others.

                                                                The Dream House by the Lake

                                                                Ellen L.

                                                                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!

                                                                Hi Ellen: thank you for the wonderful review of our property and staff. It was a pleasure to have you and your lovely family at the Sandpiper Property again. I hope to see you next summer.



                                                                Simply Perfect

                                                                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.
