About John Tauchus via Managment - Westshore Vacation Rental

Lynda, John and Marina comprise a small michigan family with big dreams to move permanently to Manistee some day. We currently live and work in the place we grew up downriver suburbs of Detroit.

John Tauchus via Managment - Westshore Vacation Rental purchased this cottage in 2013

Why John Tauchus via Managment - Westshore Vacation Rental chose Michigan

Our family has always loved the area of Manistee Michigan. It's a special place with so much to offer. We passed this property on a return trip from our yearly Michigan vacation in 2013. Lynda joked about owning a house just as we drove past and the house popped up on Trulia on her device. We were back the next weekend to put in a bid. We just can't believe it's ours and every time we are here it's such a privilege for us.

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with the house for all of the amenities within walking distance. We discovered just how special the location was after spending a few weekends in the area and spent some time in town. A beach area is down the road just a half a mile or so on the left side for those who can't navigate the long stairway that leads to the beach area in the park. Within 2-3 miles there are plenty of eateries, mini golf, affordable airplane rides over Lake Michigan, a casino, a ship tour, charter fishing, public access to both river and lake fishing, trails and hiking areas and stores & shops, and 2 additional public beaches (1st & or 5th street) and a great river-walk downtown. If you can't find something to do in this area…. you had better check your pulse!!
