Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: I am a 4th generation Stony Lake resorter beginning with my great grandfather who rented one of the early cottages on the lake. The rest is history. As a child I enjoyed every summer, Memorial to Labor Day, at Stony Lake and knew this was where I wanted my family to grow up also. I was extremely fortunate to acquire this property in 1994.

Why the Owner Chose Shelby, Michigan, United States of America:
This property is uniquely located within walking distance to Lake Michigan and is one of just a few cottages on a quiet gravel dead end road with limited traffic. It is just two cottages away from the cottage where I grew up and fortunately, I was able to purchase this property. Now my children and grandchildren come to Stony to enjoy good old fashioned fun and family environment. The 'Peanut' cottage is the guest house for the main property which was recently rebuilt in 2014.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Listen to the waves lapping the water's edge while you enjoy beautiful views from the screened porch. This cottage is perfect for a couple seeking respite from a busy urban life or a young family to enjoy playing with their children in the beach sands of Stony or Lake Michigan. This is a historic cottage built at the turn of the century and has been updated periodically to preserve its integrity. It has wood floors throughout and has a quaint cottage feel the moment you walk thru the front door.
