About Jeanne Beard

I currently live in Wheaton, IL with my 2 teenage sons and 2 large dogs. My dream was to build a home made to last generations in my family, and I have put that vision into every aspect of this home.

Jeanne Beard purchased this house in 2003

Why Jeanne Beard chose Dowagiac

This property has been completely rebuilt from the ground up in the last 8 years. It is light, airy, built for comfort, privacy and entertaining. Kitchen is open plan for those who love to cook and eat. Several families can comfortably enjoy this home together. Enjoy water sports on the lake which has no resorts, only private homes.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful patio with large wood table, grill, ping pong table is nice on the patio. Fire pit just feet from the water. Sandy beach area for kids to play. Great fishing from the pier and from your boat. Bass, trout, walleye, etc. There are boat marinas for rental in the area:Lake Effect Power Sports or Sister Lakes Marine. Lake Michigan fishing charters Mi-Hi Charters

Beautiful Lakehome!

  • 5 of 5

Family of 20 enjoyed a week in this beautiful home. First time vacationing in Michigan and had a great time swimming, taking boat rides all around the huge lake, wine tasting tour and shopping in Saugatuck. Enjoyed cooking in the gourmet kitchen and the steam shower room is fantastic. A great time was had by all!!

Beautiful lakehouse!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 3 families who rent annually all around the country and this was our favorite home and location, by far! The owner has paid attention to every detail and we were so comfortable here. We swam in the lake, went boating, cooked huge meals in the gourmet kitchen and relaxed on the screened porch next to a wonderful fireplace. Fantastic! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

This house is wonderful! We had 17 people and were comfortable. It was easy to all be together and enjoy out time. The outside area is great with the grill and fire pit. It was very hard to leave.

Good time - great house

  • 4 of 5

We had a group of 18 and fit comfortably. The house is roomy and there are a ton of amenities like the gas grill, lakefront, and all the books, games etc. in the house. Previous users left a lot of food etc. that we did not expect nor the drawer full of spare clothes! We were all able to gather in the living rooms for party games and generally eat at the same time. If the occasion arises again, I would certainly look into renting this house again.
