LIVE THE ISLAND EXPERIENCE
"Once you have slept on an island, you'll never be quite the same"
Take a step away from the hustle and bustle of your busy life to enjoy this beautiful modified A-frame home, located just 45 feet from the shores of Lake Michigan. Wake up to the stunning sunrises and fall asleep to the soothing sound of the lake waves. Experience the star studded sky at night. Have breakfast coffee on the deck and watch the wild life along the lake. Take a long leisurely walk in Lake Michigan on the shoreline or swim in the refreshing waters surrounding this 7 mile island. Water so clear you can see the bottom of the lake from the kitchen window.
This lovely home has two bedrooms upstairs that have sliding glass /screened doors that open to an observation deck. (Perfect for night sky viewing.) The beds are queen size. The living room/great room has a huge 18 foot stone fireplace(for romantic fires in the evening-firewood included), hard wood floors, and many nautical accoutrements make this a very charming place.

5 Stars. Title Our 12th Summer in Island Home
Dates Jul 21-31, 2018, 10 nights
5 stars. Arrived 07/21/18 Title. Our 12th Summer at the Island Home We love the Island Home, which is on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. Great views also from the patio doors in the dining room and two bedrooms. We took our kayaks down the stairs and launched them on the stone slab beach. Beautiful place by the water to sit. The Island Home is clean, comfortable and well maintained. Bill and Jeanne are very friendly and respond quickly. We have reserved our week for next year. Thanks
