The home has a living room, large dining room, full kitchen, five bedrooms (Sleeps 12-13), two full baths and a laundry room. Bed linens, towels, microwave, coffeemaker, dishwasher, garbage disposal, cable TV, wireless internet, gas grill and parking are provided. The kitchen, laundry room and porch were remodeled in 2015. The first floor family suite was remodeled in 2016. We are just completing remodeling the upstairs bathroom for the 2018 season. The house very comfortably sleeps 12 to 13.
The FRONT PORCH is a very large, covered outdoor space with a wicker seating area for over 10 guests. It is a great place to sip your morning coffee or an evening cocktail. Rain or shine the porch is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy your summer vacation. Two decks are available which provide additional space to enjoy the outdoors. Enjoy grilling and your meal on the cafe deck which has the gas grill, dining table and umbrella to cool down from the sun. For a quiet space the retreat deck provides a secluded location to read a book or enjoy a quiet conversation.
The LIVING ROOM has a bank of windows looking onto the front porch with comfortable seating for seven. There is a 40” flat screen TV, DVD player, and digital cable to catch your favorite shows after a day at the beach, golfing, fishing or enjoying the sights of Northern Michigan.
The DINING ROOM is the hub of the home with a breakfast island that opens to the kitchen. It includes a round oak dining table which seats up to 10, a china hutch and a large desk which make this more like a great room than simply a dining area. The sliding glass doors lead to the lovely bistro deck which has a gas grill and a round patio table with umbrella to enjoy an outdoor cookout after a day at the beach. There are two ceiling fans to bring the cool lake breeze into the house.
The KITCHEN was remodeled in 2015 keeping its farmhouse style with dark oak cabinets, butcher block counter tops and a breakfast island. The large porcelain sink and vintage green stove pay tribute to the past while enjoying the modern conveniences of a dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, electric stove and refrigerator with ice maker. The wall air conditioner and ceiling fan keep the kitchen cool while cooking. The mobile island provides additional work space and storage for recycling. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishware, glasses, pots, pans and even a crock pot.
The FAMILY BEDROOM is located on the second floor and sleeps 4. This spacious, traditional bedroom has a queen bed and a twin trundle bed. A ceiling fan and window air-conditioner will help you rest comfortably on a hot summer night.
THE BUNK ROOM is located on the second floor and sleeps 3. This cozy, quilted classic room has a bunk bed which has a double bed on the bottom and a twin bed on the top. This room attracts children like a magnet. A window air-conditioner cools the room nicely for a comfortable night of sleep.
The FRENCH DOOR RETREAT is a sun filled room with a double bed located on the first floor. The room includes an antique dresser, ceiling fan, window air conditioner and French doors that lead to the private deck.
The FAMILY SUITE was added in the summer of 2016 and sleeps 4. The two room suite includes a kids sleeping passage with a stairway bunk bed and a sunny private master with a new queen memory foam mattress on a antique bed. Ceiling fans and a window air conditioner to cool the rooms for a restful night of sleep.
There are two full BATHROOMS located on each floor of the house. The second floor bathroom is being remodeled for the 2018 summer season. It will included a heated ceramic floor, marble top vanity, new toilet, and reconditioned large claw foot tub with shower. The first floor bathroom has a fiberglass 48' shower with handicap bars, vanity and toilet.
The LAUNDRY ROOM is located off the kitchen and houses a stack able washer and dryer to help you keep up on the week’s laundry.
PARKING is provided in the shared driveway at the rear of the home. There are two parking spaces dedicated for the house. Additional parking is allowed on Forest Avenue all day and night which we often find more convenient for access to the front of the house.
