About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Modern Cottage with Cathedral Ceilings

Forget everything you know about cottages. This one’s a treat. Start your day with a dash straight from the grass to the sandy beach, and end it with a view of the starry sky.

The trees in the area make this a beautiful vacation destination, and it’s absolutely stunning in the fall. Choose between the row boat or the paddleboat to float through the lake, and put together a s’mores party at the bonfire pit.

Inside the House

Take in the stunning lake with your coffee in the morning on the back deck. High ceilings and large windows add more character to the great room, with plenty of natural light during the day. The great room features:
•Cathedral ceilings
•Electric fireplace
•Dining area
•Sleeper sofa

The spacious 3 BR, 1.5 BA cottage includes a fully-equipped kitchen and new appliances. The master bedroom is on the upper floor, furnished with a queen bed. The ½ bath and the full bathroom are both upstairs.

Downstairs, the kids can play around in the fort-like bunkroom, and challenge each other to a quick game of foosball. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other has a bunk bed. Also includes:
•Living room
•Sleeper sofa
•TV

Wander right out the lower level and down to the crystal clear lake. The water level starts out shallow, so it’s the perfect depth for little ones to splash around in. Settle in on the patio and put your feet up while you wait for your burgers to finish cooking on the grill.

Our Location

The cottage is just a few miles from major highways, but is still close enough to everything you need. (And you’ll still have reliable Wi-Fi.) While you’re in town, be sure to check out:
•Local Lighthouses
•Scenic Drives
•Lake Michigan
•Sand Dunes

Take a long walk along the beach at Lake Michigan, visit a few of the area festivals and bring your clubs to hit a few at the golf course. A short drive will take you wherever you want to go:
•Stonegate Golf Course (3 miles)
•Michigan’s Adventure Amusement and Water Park (8 miles)
•Silver Lake Sand Dunes (30 miles)
•Grand Haven (22 miles)
•Blue Lake Fine Arts Center (5 miles)

Take advantage of the cottage’s waterfront location, all while you dip your toes in the water and catch your own dinner. You can even rent our pontoon boat during your stay. It’s shared with our nearby house with enough space for 10 guests, if you need more space. Twin Lake has the best western Michigan has to offer. Come see us!

** Please note that outdoor equipment and furnishings are stored away from November until May **

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Welcome! We’re Kathy and Chuck Kircus, owners of Sandy Shores of Twin Lake. Until the economic downturn, we were both involved in the automotive industry. We’re hard workers, and we love Michigan, so we immediately started looking for a new opportunity. Usually some unexpected event is what makes you realize what’s most important to you. For us, it was spending time with our family, relaxing on our pontoon boat, taking in a crisp view of the night sky. We knew that in Michigan, we could always find a new start. So, we used the money from our retirement and created Sandy Shores of Twin Lake, LLC. We purchased the cottage in 2005, and the house in 2007. We understand the importance of family, a calm, relaxing vacation, and how a cozy atmosphere helps bring people together. Our properties aren’t just rentals. This place is home! My family takes an annual 10-day vacation together here ourselves. We adopted four special needs children and we experience our house and cottage with them, our parents, and our close friends. Each year, we see these children grow as they make little sandcastles and chase fireflies in the yard. Our story started with some hardship and continues with great joy. A house and a cottage later, we’re still planning our vacations and deciding who brings the marshmallows and the graham crackers for s’mores around the bonfire. In 2015 we celebrated our 10th anniversary as Sandy Shores of Twin Lake. It’s such a gift to us to see our guests making memories with their family and friends here, just like we have. We’d be happy for you to see why our family cherishes Western Michigan so much!

Why the Owner Chose Twin Lake, MI, USA:
Discover Twin Lake, a freshwater haven that inspires both awe and adventure. Our rentals are designed to give you uninhibited access to the lake and views of its shoreline. Perfect for small children, the lakefront has crystal-clear, warm inland waters, a sandy bottom, and a gradual depth with no muck. Cozy cottage-like interiors let you curl up fireside while looking out over acres of deep water. Grassy yards lead to picture-perfect beaches. And just a short drive away, historical scenic lighthouses and fun-packed Michigan's Adventure Amusement & Water Park await. With 25 years of experience in customer service, we’ll ensure your vacation goes off without a hitch. Join us for a lakeside retreat you won’t soon forget at Sandy Shores of Twin Lake, LLC.
