About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom with gorgeous view of Lake Michigan

Newly remodeled house sits on a high bluff overlooking Lake Michigan! The house is fully furnished and comes with new linens and towels.

Two bedrooms are located on the second floor of the house. The master bedroom has a king bed and an ensuite master bathroom, and a private walk out balcony so you can enjoy the sunset overlooking the lake. The ensuite master bathroom has a oversize shower and a jacuzzi tub. Second bedroom includes a queen bed. Third bedroom has a bunk bed with a full and a twin size bed.

All of the bedrooms and the living room have ceiling fans.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all new appliances, including a wine cooler. There is a dining room table which can seat 6 people. This house has a living room with a wood-burning fireplace. In the living room there is a 42' flat screen TV with a DVD player or you can simply sit on the couch and enjoy the view of the lake. Once you walk outside you will be on the large deck that has a propane burning grill. After you have finished grilling you can go to the fire-pit that is in the back yard and enjoy a delicious s'more.

There is no direct access to the beach, but the house is located in a short driving distance to a public Silver Beach County Park in St. Joseph, Jean Klock Park in Benton Harbor or Hagar Park in Coloma.

Great Lake Michigan Home Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for somewhere to stay because of a family wedding in St. Joseph during the peak season of summer. The hotels around the area were very pricey so I took a look on VRBO and was lucky to find the Magnolia House! Andy was great to work with, so we extended a two night stay into a mini-vacation (4 nights). The house is stunning. The area is beautiful and very close to quick day trips up & down Lake Michigan. My adult children told us that this was their best vacation yet. Very relaxing and great family time! We cannot wait to come back!

Awesome Sunsets Every Single Night !

  • 5 of 5

This home is simply beautiful and so relaxing. Everything was perfect. Location was ideal - short drive from St. Joe, short drive to Rocky Gap Beach, which is free and less crowded than Silver Beach. We were close to Lake Michigan Hills golf course which was a very nice course and reasonable. House is on a very quiet street. House comes very well equipped with anything you could possibly need. Beds and linens were very comfy and you can't go wrong with Tommy Bahama pillows. Thanks Andy !

Wonderful home for our family of five. Beautiful home and views. All needed amenities available.

  • 5 of 5

We visited with our family of five, ages 7 months-38 years. The grandparents joined us for a few nights. Home is beautiful and clean, actually even nicer than it looks in the pictures. We enjoyed the bonfire and beautiful views. This is a gem. Five minute drive into St Joseph and just a few minutes to Jean Klock and Tiscornia parks. We loved the Christmas Tree gift shop just down the road. Thank you, Andy for this beautiful place for our family to get away. We hope to come back soon.

Beautiful well kept property with gorgeous lake views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 recently stayed at this property in July 2016 and absolutely loved it ! The home was well appointed and clean and the views of Lake Michigan were spectacular. We lucked out on the weather as well. And even though there was no lake access, we were only an 8 minute ride to downtown and the beaches and good restaurants. Even our two teenagers loved just hanging at the house and playing games at night. We will definitely be back and hope to make this an annual trip as it is so close to Chicago. Thanks, again.

Great house, exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

This home is everything it says it is, the views are unbeatable and the house itself is updated, clean and comfortable. I agree with others that it is probably not the most kid friendly, but that wasn't an issue for us. It is a short drive from downtown St. Joseph on a quiet street. Overall, we had a great time and couldn't be happier with our decision to stay here. I will definitely try to stay here again in the future if the opportunity arises.
