About the Property

Entering our 3rd season. Please read description for more info.

Summer '17 all booked. Stay for Fall or book for Summer '18!

Welcome to TreeTops at Grand Beach! We appreciate you stopping by. Please inquire about anything you see or read on the site.

TreeTops is a classic Grand Beach home nestled in the trees of Old Grand Beach; a block from Lake Michigan & the park/tennis courts with all the trappings for a great week or weekend. It's a very private property as evidenced by the pictures and many of the comments in the reviews for the house. Both the house and adjoining deck are perched high off the street on a sand dune away from neighbors.

The home is 2,000 square feet with 3 bedrooms/2 baths and a monstrous deck that winds down to a dead-end street and you can walk the block to the beach in minutes. As well, your rental (in season) comes with the use of our golf cart, that seats four, and can quickly transport you to the beach, golf course or anywhere within the Village. Grand Beach is a golf cart “approved” village. You must have drivers license to operate golf cart on the streets.

The kitchen is very large and comes with all kinds of necessities for cooking and baking. We keep the spice cabinet well stocked so leave your spices at home. Re: grilling, we have a new, large gas grill for the barbecue king or queen. There's a bar off the kitchen that allows for additional seating to the kitchen nook table. See pictures for better detail. We have a Keurig coffee machine for your K-Cups as well as a traditional coffee maker too.

The main living area is very spacious and includes a large flat screen TV and a dual sided fireplace for fires in the off season. There's an additional 4 person, round table in the living room for added seating, working a puzzle and/or a great game of cards.

The three bedrooms upstairs bedrooms are spacious and all have newly acquired beds and linens. Total bed sleeping accommodates 9 (1 king, 2 queens, 1 twin bunk and one twin) and is ideally suited for three families with kids. This is not to say that some can't sleep downstairs but the house is really geared for six adults (max) and some children. Let me know if you have any questions about lodging.

For the summer vacationers, we have a surfboard, a kids kayak, 4+ boogie/wake boards, at least a half a dozen beach chairs, four small child life vests and an umbrella for the beach.

We’re excited to offer you a great, private retreat home in Old Grand Beach for whatever your week or weekend has in store. Mid-week rentals also available.

A little history: the house was purchased at the end of 2014 and we completed the renovation in the spring of 2015...just in time for the rental season. All pics are current to the property today. TreeTops is also owner-managed.

So come stay with us. Many others have. We really think you'll enjoy the house as much as we have so far. And please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions and thanks for giving us a look.

Thanks,
K, H, S & Z

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Family of four from Chicago and long time vacationers to the area that decided to take the plunge and buy a property in this great little area of Grand Beach

Why the Owner Chose Grand Beach, MI, USA:
Suited our family and rental prospects very well. Situated up on a sand dune, the house and deck are "away from it all". House has great bones and matched perfectly with our desire to create a "beach like" home near Lake MI. With its 2,000 square feet and large deck you never feel on top of each other.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Serenity. Very private. Great area of Grand Beach. Grand Beach is a quiet little beach town. It's a throwback beach town. Lotta walking, golf cart travel and overall friendly folks. Re: the privacy, you can't just show up and park your car in the street and hit the beach...need to be a resident or guest so very little traffic. You'll visit once and come back for years...just like us.
