The Lakeside Beach House sits on a bluff right on Lake Michigan. It boasts of stunning lake views from almost every room and a 100 feet of private beach 1/2 block to entrance.
The Beach House sleeps 10 to 12 people. It has 6 bedrooms, if you count the family room with 3 twin beds and a queen sofa bed as #6. The house has 3 full baths—two on the main level, 1 on the lower level, all have walk-in showers showers. There is no bathtub.
The house is built into the dune so that from the front it looks like a one-story ranch house, and from the back it is revealed to be a two-story house with window looking out to the lake and beach from both levels.
II recently had an email from a renter who joined the property owners after her own stay in August of 2017. I thought she expressed the ambiance of the house very well. I will let her speak.
"I had the opportunity to have cocktails at this property with the owners, and I can only say the pictures can only go so far to do it justice. The house is spacious, graciously appointed and comfortable, with lots of room for lots of people to get together, as well as lots of cozy corners to get away from everyone as well. The lawn overlooking the beach is lovely and the beach is directly accessible and feels private. I have stayed at another property of the owners and I can assure you that anything you might possible want or need is available, and there will be no surprises. Everything is well maintained, clean, and equipped for active engagement with lakeside living."
