About the property

Lake Michigan Waterfront Home With Private Beach & Sunset Views!

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.

About Jeanine

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.

Jeanine purchased this house in 2013

Why Jeanine chose Montague

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

We spent the last weekend of vacation in this lakefront cottage with our friends.

We had an amazing time.

The house is comfy, and well furnished with everything you can potentially need. It was a nice surprise that the owners thought of leaving even a flashlight to the guests to get to the bonfire more easily. The house is close to everything, but in secluded very private place. The view of the Lake Michigan from the deck of the house is just spectacular. The owners are super nice, very communicative and helpful. We had such a great vacation. I highly recommend this place for everybody, and I’m sure you will love it.

We really enjoyed our week in this home on Lake Michigan. The view was great, the beach was awesome, and the place had everything we needed. It is near all kinds of activities - we kayaked while we were there and went horseback riding at the JJ Ranch.

Excellent place

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place, quiet and spacious. Great for friends/family reunion. The owners were courteous and responsive during booking and prompt in returning the deposit. have taken good care of the property and have recently built new stairs to the dune. This was our third time in the area, and will return again. Would recommend it to any one.

Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our family took a week-long stay at the house. It is really just as you see in the pictures. It's located on a quiet bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. The owners are great and vey easy to communicate with - both via phone and internet. You can tell they are interested in making sure your stay in a good one. Currently there is a path that takes you down to the lake, but a staircase is being installed and will make a real nice addition. Our teenagers loved being able to go mess around on the small beach. A firepit down at the water makes for a great place to unwind at the end of the day and yes, PLENTY of firewood! We used the home as a base to travel the coast from Frankfort to Grand Haven. Beaches, lighthouses, sand dunes, shopping and small town fun. Back home to enjoy a bbq and dinner on the deck watching the sunset. The owners have a binder at the house that is loaded with things to do in the area and was very helpful. A 15 minute drive will get you to an indoor waterpark if you have nasty weather and there is also dune rides and horseback riding nearby. The whole family had things to do in the area. If you are looking to just spend a day at the house there are movies to watch and board games to play. Not having many tv channels in the area was not an issue for our teenagers - it's vacation and there are plenty of other things to do. Looking forward to getting back someday!

This house is located in the perfect area. It allows you to choose between simply relaxing on your private beach and enjoying Lake Michigan as a quiet getaway or making your vacation a time for activities and fun!
