The outdoor patio garden is surrounded with privacy fence along two 20'+ building sides, including a 200 sq foot furnished slab patio with grill, plus gardens and fire pit.

As you walk under the grand Maple tree, past the white picket fence, across the front covered porch, through the front door, you enter the living room. To the right are four chairs that make a sleeping couch, wall-mounted cable HDTV, sliding-glass doors to side garden entrance. Behind the bookcase living room wall is a sleeping area with bunk beds. To the left is a queen bed. As you walk under the partial storage loft, to the left, you enter a room with radiant heat floor tiles with a dining table, fridge, dishes, etc. Passing through the pocket-door, you find the jacuzzi tub bathroom and back door opening onto the fenced-in patio, and gardens that wrap around to the living room sliding door.

Enjoy a stay on the SWMI Wine Trail, just two miles from the famous Greenbush Brewery, with nearby Tapistry Brewery and Four Winds Casino. (To ride the bus, facebook: Grape and Grain Tours) Arrive to freshly made beds, with bath towels, soaps, starter tp and napkins, some spices above the empty fridge. This completely remodeled cape cod style house sleeps 12 in 9 beds, )(plus foam and air mattresses if you are 12 single people who do not wish to double up) is two stories, has a spa room (with two person jacuzzi tub, separate threshold-free marble shower, radiant floor heat and fireplace) (sleeps 2 in hypoallergenic latex firm double-bed), laundry room, kitchen, dining room (seats 12 = 6 chairs, bench for 4, 2 chairs from nearby room), living room (seats 12 with three couches, (middle one a hide-a-bed), fire place, fenced-in back deck (with Propane grill (long lighter in kitchen), table and chairs), 4000 sq ft fenced in privacy yard for kids to play, a grandparents' bedroom (sleeps 2, twin day bed with pop-up twin trundle makes king) and half bath downstairs, and huge kids room (sleeps 6 in Queen+ 3 twins + single), master (with king iComfort (Serta's Tempur-Pedic), extra double and single floor mattresses and full bath upstairs.

Comcast Blast wifi and cable hd tv (includes sports package) with streaming movies in the living room. Let me know if you have any requests, as I would be happy to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

The color theme is based on the name, 'Peacock Place', with landscape oil paintings and avian decor. The dishes are primarily solid color glass (with plastics for kids). Linens are provided, and also a washer/dryer upstairs (keep the laundry room door closed for climate control). The basement is reserved for storage. Baseball bats (for the park across the street) are available. Just bring balls and tackle!

Weekend, weekly, monthly, or spend the entire summer or winter. Security deposit is waived with damage protection insurance. Five night min rental prime summer, three night minimum on off season weekend, one night weekday. And, in the off-season, if you need sliding scale due to finance constraints, you may opt to have the cleaning fee reduced /refunded as an agreement to pick up after yourselves (if you do not require professional cleaning before your arrival, check in early to do laundry, empty dishwasher, etc.). If agreed before booking, pets welcome with $250 pet fee (partially refundable if you tell me now how you will restrict access and clean linens, upholstery, yard, etc. after, as we discuss beforehand--I, and others, are allergic). Be sure to ask for any of these options prior to booking. $50/hr for early check-in or check-out, depending on time requested, if extra cleaners are available. For any of these options, be sure to ask prior to booking.

Check-in time is 4pm and check-out is 11am, Eastern Time. Please remember Chicago is Central time, one hour behind. There are information binders near the TV, including township good neighbor policy, menus, maps, attractions...
Because my guests have followed the simple house rules, I continue to pay more for cleaning than I charge you, in gratitude for your compliance. Rather than remake your beds before check-out, I request that you strip the sheets you slept on (laundry baskets provided in three closets; please take to dining room).
Recycling is also requested. Sorting is easy as I pay extra for the service that commingles. There is one trash bin per week, and three for recycling! If you plan to fill more than one garbage can, there is an actual cost of $45 per each additional.
Also, if you move furniture, blankets, toys, games, please put back, and run dishwasher.
And, please turn climate controls back, close windows and return beach pass and grill lighter to kitchen. Enjoy!

Less than half a mile from Lake Michigan, across the street from Harbert Community Park, (offering play ground, dog park, fishing pond, picnic area, farmer's market, ice skating, and baseball)... Nearby local Harbert and Cherry Beaches, and Warren Dunes State Park with sand dunes to climb and waves to conquer... Warren Woods and Chickaming Park and Preserve, Fernwood Gardens, Captain Mike's Funpark... restaurants, art galleries, antiques, wineries, brew pubs, casino, nature trails and highway access.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I can split payments into three requests to send to multiple payers. Other discounts may be negotiated, especially if you want both houses or do not require a full cleaning prior to check-in in the off-season (I charge you less than actual cost of cleaning.) Ask for a discount if you want both houses. The guest house alone is 55% the price of main house. House is designed for 12, with extra fee for up to 16. Guest house upgrade sleeps 4. Best, Kristy***
