Car: Recommended

This property is located near (20 minute drive) Michigan's largest amusement Park & Water Park, Michigan Adventure. You can walk to a navel museum and tour a WW2 submarine. During winter months, enjoy the Muskegon Winter Sports Complex at the Michigan State Park which features an Olympic class luge, ice skating and lighted cross country skiing. Ice fishing on Muskegon lake during winter months has been exceptional.

Its a short walk to the beaches of Lake Michigan or Muskegon Lake.

 

Manager info

Why Beachwood-Bluffton, Muskegon, MI, USA:
The wonderful sandy beaches and the friendly community. Boat traffic through the channel is so entertaining and like watching a great parade during the day

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The smell of fresh water breezes, the boat traffic on the channel while sipping morning coffee, the fog horn in the distance on low visibility days, and seeing the joy of all those in the area knowing they are in a very special part of the world. Peaceful.
