UPDATES
We are excited and looking forward to sharing our vacation property with our 2016 guests. This year we are opening earlier than in the past years and offering an 18% discount in the Spring and Fall. Our guests this year will enjoy some new updates that we have made to the Little House (the tan house). Last year we added some new decorations and fire pits, which several guests recommended. We had also remodeled the bathroom in the Little House (tan house) first floor bath by adding new ceramic tiles in the shower. This year we put up new bead-board in the upstairs living room area, new carpeting in the apartment, stairs and the entire Great Room. The entire Great Room has been repainted, with new blinds and garage door for easier access. It is a great new fresh atmosphere. We already have several reservations, so please call early and we will be happy to work with you to arrange a wonderful stay with us along Lake Michigan's shore line.

Our property is approximately 4 acres of 100 year old trees with a 100 foot private clean sandy beach in southwest Michigan's Harbor Country. We sit on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan with beautiful scenic views and evening sunsets.

We have two very quaint country cottages, each with a very relaxing comforting atmosphere.

The 'Pink House' is perfect for a small family of 2 to 4 people. It has two bedrooms (both rooms have full size beds), a living room / kitchenette, a dining room and one bath.

The 'Little House' (tan house) is actually quite spacious. This house is also quite versatile with a lower level house and an upper level apartment, which can be rented in combination or separately. The 'Little House' lower level has two bedrooms (one queen bed, the other with bunk beds), a living room / kitchenette, dining room and one bath with shower. The upstairs apartment includes one bedroom with a queen size bed, a small living room with a fold down couch, a kitchenette and a small bath with a shower (no tub). This house has a great room that is situated between the lower house and the upper apartment and can be used by the renters from both areas. The garage door is fitted with a zip up screen and can be opened for fresh air, free from insects.

All renters have use of a gas grill and picnic benches and fire pits.

Absorb yourself in a sun-basked adventure on our sugar sand beach. Enjoy a quiet excursion through a local vineyard where the scent of fresh grown vegetables and fruit blossoms prevail. Visit a unique assortment of shops and businesses. In the evening you can find yourself overlooking the shores of Lake Michigan and it's beautiful sunsets.

If your looking for evening excitement or night life the Four Winds Casino with its live shows, Casino Gaming, vast buffet and even a Hard Rock Cafe are only a 5 minute ride from our property.

Regardless if you have planned a romantic evening along the lake shore or gather with locals at a nearby bistro, you’ll discover expectations satisfied. Southwest Michigan is filled with countryside parks, primeval forests, dune buggy rides, water slides, jet skiing, sailing, salmon fishing, golf courses, theaters, museums, wineries, galleries, antique and outlet malls, and much more. Harbor Country attracts thousands of visitors each year while vast assortments of ethnic food eateries satisfy the heartiest of appetites. You can experience all of this in a quaint, relaxing and quiet country atmosphere.

**PLEASE NOTE: this property is located on a sand dune overlooking our private beach and there are approximately 100 stairs down to the beach. People with health issues may find this to be a difficult climb.
