Overview

About the property

Available for the first time, this exclusive, four season, executive estate is the ultimate destination for your family escape.

Situated on four private acres of wooded Lake Michigan property with 220 foot of sandy beach frontage. The stunning lake views and famous Michigan sunsets are available from multiple decks, patios and the well groomed grounds. The lighted walkways and stairs with multi-level deck areas lead to a charming tiki bar with stereo, overlooking the surf and sand of Lake Michigan.

The indoor accommodations include the spacious living room with expansive windows displaying the panoramic views of the lake. The fireplace creates a cozy gathering place for friends and family for an evening of conversation or a friendly game of cards. The well appointed kitchen overlooks the tennis court and wooded grounds with two adjacent dining areas facing the lake.

Master suites with full lake views accompany two additional bedrooms with private bathrooms. The house has central air conditioning in addition to a unique fresh air ventilating system, which circulates the outside fresh air throughout the house. Larger groups of family or friends are easily accepted with a carriage house that sleeps seven, with a private bath and a waterside deck to enjoy the sun and views of the lake.

Additional amenities of this estate include a newly resurfaced, lighted, full tennis and basketball court, lakeside fire pit and fully equipped barbecue deck, new state of the art stereo system, DVD and WiFi.

Additional perks are just minutes away to visit the nearby resort communities of Saugatuck-Douglas, South Haven and surrounding locations for art galleries, eclectic stores, award winning wineries, microbreweries, Krupkas for blueberry picking, or Crane's Orchard for fall apple picking.

For the Golf enthusiasts we are 10 minutes from four golf courses including the Arnold Palmer signature course.

For the outdoor lover the 50,000 acre Allegan State Game Area, offers boating, fishing, biking, hiking, skiing and bird watching.

This exclusive estate on the lake is the destination that truly has the attractions your family will want to return to again and again.

After a beautiful summer and autumn, it's time to embrace the quiet serenity of the Winter Wonderland!

Get away from the hustle-and-bustle of the city and breath the fresh, crisp air!

Bring your snowshoes and your cross country skis and enjoy the park next door, or the long shoreline of Lake Michigan, just minutes away, soon to be covered in snow!

What a week!

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of 10 individuals - 6 in the main house and 4 in the cottage. We couldn't believe our eyes when we arrived. WOW! The home was immaculate, , and easy to keep that way. The pictures don't do this place justice. The kitchen is huge and easy to make meals by several people. Plenty of cutlery and plates. Well-stocked "spice" cabinet. What we used, we replaced. Attention to every detail was amazing. There were games, but we also brought our own board and card games.

What we loved, and suggestions for the traveler: Not a bazillion steps to get to the beach, like many Michigan lake homes. I drank my coffee every morning at the first "landing" of the stairs. We loved the Tiki Bar for sunsets. Great sound system at the Tiki Bar. Bring your phone or iPod or iPad to plug in. We also loved the fire pit - so much good quality, dry wood to use. Bring some extra beach chairs if you have a large group and don't want to sit on the ground. We gathered "kindling" on the beach dunes, dry grass that was already torn away from the land. The tennis and basketball courts were very well-used by out group! The large, newish hammock was in use almost every afternoon. Beach was great - be SURE to bring water shoes, but if you forget, you can get them at Walmart. This isn't an ocean beach, it's a lake beach, and there are lots of rocks. We also loved just how long the beach was for walking. You can easily pass the short southern beach wall by just going around it - wear your bathing suits, you may well get wet. After that, miles of walking available. We found a good amount of quartz tumbled by the lake, and even some beach glass.

Areas we explored: Saugatuck Dunes State Park for hiking: gorgeous hiking trails. Holland Boat Harbor - we rented a pontoon boat for 4 hours - very fun. Great restaurants in Saugatuck.

You need to know: This estate has well water. While drinking water is provided, you need to be aware of the limitations of well water pressure. So, plan your showers in the main house so that only one person is showering at the time. The sprinkler system also greatly affects water pressure, and it seems to be on all day. The property manager had the system switched to evenings. So, pick one. Showers in the day or the evening. If the sprinklers are on, the toilet in the cottage doesn't flush, or at least it didn't flush for our group.

We will be back, to this property! It's a "same time next year" dream!

Our family had a glorious vacation at this rental. It was perfect for beach living. The Tiki bar rocks. We have several grandchildren all under 7 and it worked very well with the decks going all around the main house. Absolutely beautiful. We had a blast on the Tennis/basketball court. Very enjoyable!!
