Property description

Perfect family home in quiet Gowdy Shores. It's a short walk down our wooded path to the wide open private beach. Spend your days in the sun, the evenings by the fire in the spacious screen porch. Our quiet lanes are lovely for strolling, jogging and cycling.
Master bedroom with queen bed and en suite bathroom. Second and third bedrooms all on first floor with queen beds in each. Full bathroom with tub and shower on first floor. Additional beds ( 2 twins, one full) upstairs in the open family room are perfect for kids and teenagers. Open living/dining room and kitchen with big center island and harvest table for 10. Fully equipped open kitchen with everything you need for family meals, including high end appliances, microwave, blender and coffee maker. Weber grill on the back deck outside the kitchen and dining area. Large screen porch seating area by the fire place, and dining table and chairs for six. Deep comfy couches in living room and on the screen porch are perfect for napping. Central air conditioning, wifi, security system. 32 inch flat screen with DVR for movie nights at home.
Need a break from the beach? Head to nearby Warren Dunes State Park for a quiet walk through the woods. Pick blueberries, apples, peaches or pumpkins at local farms. Poke around the antique shops along Red Arrow Highway. Sample a pint of brew at Greenbush in Sawyer. Take the kids out for mini golf and go-carts. Our local farmer's market is a short walk away and filled with local produce, crafts and hand made goodies.
