Property description

Lake Michigan beach front home, located in the historic Macatawa Park neighborhood.

Originally built in 1925, this cottage has been in the family since 1961.
This home is located in a private, gated community of turn of the century cottages and new luxury homes.

This is a unique opportunity to stay at a cottage in Macatawa Park that is closer to the lake than any other, and by far one of the most private.
