About the property

Beach House, on Private Beach, 6 Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths Sleeps 10 To 12

The Lakeside Beach House sits on a bluff right on Lake Michigan. It boasts of stunning lake views from almost every room and a100 feet of private beach at the bottom of the stair case.

Address: 14191 Bluff Road, Lakeside (Turner Shores), MI 49116

The Beach House sleeps 10 to 12 people. It has 6 bedrooms, if you count the family room with a queen sofa bed as #6. It has 3 full baths—two on the main level, 1 on the lower level, all have 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.

The 6 bedrooms (including family room) need some explanation.

On the main level

1. The master bedroom (queen) has a private full bath with shower

2. The 2nd bedroom (2 twin beds) has a full bath, with shower inside of tub


On lower level: overlooking the lake

3. The 3rd bedroom (queen)

4. The family room, serving as the 4th bedroom has a sofa bed (queen)

5. The 5th bedroom, referred to as “the children’s spaces” looks out into the family room

6. The 6th bedroom is the same, one of “the children’s spaces”, also looking out into the family room.

Both of these “children’s spaces have curtains over the door ways, not doors at all—they are small bedrooms, without windows They are open to the family room. The family room looks out to the lake.

Also on the lower level are these additional rooms:

• The 3rd is a ' beach bathroom' with shower

• Laundry room with washer, dryer, iron and ironing board

• Door to back patio and stairs down to the 100 foot private beach

Rooms on the upper level include:

• Dining/library room

• Screened-in porch

• Living room

• Second dining table

• Two bedrooms: master—(queen) guest (2 twin)

• Two full baths (master-with shower) and (guest with shower only--no tub)

Rooms on the upper level most with full lake views

• Dining room (with library wall)

• Screened-in-porch

• Kitchen-- completely renovated, all new appliances in 2010

• Second dining area and entrance hall

• Two car garage

Absolutely the PERFECT home for a large family directly on Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough good things about this property! I got married in Harbor Country and needed the perfect home to host our extended family who had never experienced Lake Michigan before. Upon entering the house the first thing that greets you is the most phenomenal, tree framed view of the lake from the home's perch on a wooded dune. Be careful, it is so spectacular I bet it would knock one over if they walked in during sunset. Since much of our family had never seen the lake before, the first thing they did was kick off their shoes and race to the back of the house where there is a magical, private pathway with well built stairs leading directly to the waters edge. The interior provides several options for large gathering areas. A beautiful screened in porch, a grand dinning room that feels especially cozy in the evenings, and a massive basement space that was perfect for the kids to make their own. The linen closets were a never ending supply of fresh towels for our niece's many adventures to the beach. The bedrooms were plush and comfortable leaving nothing to be desired. The kitchen cupboards provided everything we needed to entertain large homemade family dinners. We had a few questions about local entertainment and the property manager, Colleen, went above and beyond to offer her vast expertise. She has lived in the area for quite sometime and was able to tell us absolutely everything we needed to know. For those who are looking for activities other than the beach, antique shops, restaurants, a brewery, and vineyards are all nearby. If you are in need of the perfect local to make everlasting family memories - this is it!

Lakeside Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year my family has rented this house. We love the space it provides us. It overlooks the lake with a beautiful view of the sunset every day. We can easily see the lake from the huge picture window in the living room, as well as the master bedroom, the lower bedroom and family sitting area. There is a large screened in porch that we sat in every morning to have our coffee and look out on the lake and listen to the waves and the birds. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything we need. Parking is very generous. The beach is beautiful and private. The house is very child friendly. The property manager, Colleen is so very accommodating and met our every need. We have been working with her for many years and I am so happy for the opportunity for my family to enjoy this beautiful beach house! This house is for anyone who loves the lake and loves the beach!
