About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This is a classic cottage along the shoreline of Lake Michigan. It was built in 1924 and is a seasonal cottage which we offer for rent during the months of June, July and August. It has a large, wrapping screened porch which looks out on Lake Michigan and is furnished with our family's antique wicker furniture. Wile away the hours sitting in one of the porch rockers with a good book , watch the boaters and sunbathers, or grab a beach chair and enjoy Fifth Avenue Beach which is at your doorstep. You'll want to take a dip in the crystal clear waters of Lake Michigan and walk the shore looking for Petoskey stones. The U.S. Coast Guard station is steps away, as well as the lighthouse and pier for a leisurely walk and catching a glimpse of a freighter entering the channel.

Keywords: Classic Fifth Avenue Beach summer cottage with vintage wicker on the wrap-around screened porch to enjoy all of the passing Lake Michigan boat traffic. Just across the street from beach bath house, snack bar, playground, tennis courts and catwalked pier and lighthouse.
