Property description

This house is for the vacationer wanting their own private beach and beautiful Lake Michigan views. It is situated in the quaint little town of Montague, where you can take walks or ride your bikes on the Hart/Montague bike trail, visit the local farmers' markets, take a dip in Lake Michigan, or simply relax in your beach chair watching the waves lap the shore and the sun set into the horizon. And for those wanting a little more action it is only minutes away from Michigan Adventure Amusement Park, Double JJ Ranch, and many places for renting canoes, boats, dune buggies, ATVs, kayaks and paddleboards. Or go fishing, golfing and schedule a scenic boat cruise. In the winter, there are still plenty of activities available. Snowmobilers love the area for its many snowmobile trails. The Muskegon Winter Sports Complex offers ice skating, luge, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and sledding. The Double JJ Ranch also has snow tubing, dog sledding and sleigh rides. And the Lake Michigan sunsets are still spectacular even in the winter! Whatever you chose to do during whichever season this Montague house will make your stay comfortable and will feel like your home away from home!
The house is situated on a medium bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. Take the new stairs or the shared path for a short walk to the private beach. The house is newly renovated with brand new hardwood flooring. It is furnished with new furniture, new beds and new kitchen items. The kitchen is fully stocked. Bath towels, beach towels and linens are provided. There is deck furniture and a gas grill as well. There is a pit on the beach for campfires and firewood is free onsite. There is plenty of space for parking in the yard.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My wife and I currently live in Brighton, MI. We met at Central Michigan University and have been happily married for 28 years. We have two grown children.

Why the Owner Chose Montague, MI, USA:
My wife is originally from Muskegon and still has many of her relatives and friends there. She would like to eventually go back 'home'. That is why we bought this propertly. We would like to retire in the Muskegon/Montague area. We love Lake Michigan and the other inland lakes on that side of the state and take our boat there quite frequently. I enjoy hunting over there, too.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We had been looking for many years for property on the west side of Michigan. We found this property and fell in love with the beautiful Lake Michigan views and the convenient beach access. It is also not far from highway access and the city of Muskegon. It is a peaceful setting, yet close enough to many activities and shopping. We think it is a perfect place!
