About Tim Wallace

Grew up in central/northern Michigan, always wanted a house on the Big Lake. There's just something so peaceful and relaxing about the lake. The time seemed right and this location is perfect.

Tim Wallace purchased this house in 2016

Why Tim Wallace chose Shelby

Love the contemporary style of this house and it's amazing views of the lake from a top the dune. Perfect location and community for retirement in the future. Great location and home for people looking for a great family vacation spot. Secluded location with short drive to many activities in the area.

What makes this house unique

Love walks in the morning on the beach followed by a refreshing swim. The sunsets are always amazing, the benches on the beach access boardwalk are the best place to view them. This location let's you get away yet be close enough if you want explore non-beach activities.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 adults and 3 kids and found plenty of space for all at this beautiful home. The location is excellent: beach is a 5 minute walk, but more spacious beach with inviting sandbars (those may change due to currents) is a 10 minute walk. Within a 10-20 minute drive you'll find horseback riding, a petting zoo that's WAY MORE than just petting animals, dune buggy rides, a few not-too-expensive restaurants w/micro-brews, a working dairy to tour, and much more. So it's secluded in a private community but near enough to fun things for adults and kids. The kitchen and house in general was well stocked. Owners were excellent to work with. You will enjoy!

A great house steps away from Lake Michigan!

  • 4 of 5

A great family house steps away from Lake Michigan! The owners were very responsive to questions.Two full baths made it very comfortable for a larger group (we had 6 adults). Would stay here again!

Beautiful home on the lake

  • 5 of 5

My parents, my sister and I, along with our spouses (6 people altogether), found this house very comfortable. It’s near the end of a quiet lane just a couple minutes walk from the beach. There’s lots of deck space overlooking the lake on one side and the woods on the other. Although there are other houses nearby, this place felt private and tranquil. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were spotless, and the kitchen and living room area had plenty of space for us. The owners were very friendly and helpful when we checked in. I would highly recommend this house.

Wonderful lake Michigan vacation

  • 4 of 5

The home and location provided the atmosphere of rest and relaxation we needed. The home was well equipped and a very short walk to Lake Michigan. The owners were very friendly and have maintained the house well. Walks on the beach and through the neighborhood provide additional reasons to rent this home.

You will not be disappointed
