Manager info

Year Purchased: 1966

About: A beloved, one of a kind Lake Micihgan cottage that has been in the same family for over 70 years, with updated amenites

Why West Olive, MI, USA:
Passed down for generations and held close to our hearts. Seeing it you will fall in love with it and the one of a kind site. Travelers from all over have told us the view is unmatched.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
the most magnificent Lake Michigan view imaginable, enjoyed from both the porch, living room, and master bedroom; family friendly, easy beach access,only 38 steps down. Cottage is out on a dune promontory. It commands a unique private, panoramic view due to its proximity to the lake, much closer than surrounding homes due to it's being grandfathered in, originally built before dune set back laws went in effect. It makes the most of the view with an 18' deck outlook for sunsets, just 20 ft from the sliding door, and a grassy lawn
