About the Property

A short stroll to a private beach entrance, sleeps 6 , 2 baths & more

The Porta Rossa - the Red Door is Located in the Turner Shores area of Lakeside, MI - A historic private beach community located in the popular "Harbor Country" area of MI . This past spring this cottage gem in the raw was purchased, gutted, extensively renovated and lovingly restored into a wonderful rental cottage with a two minute walk to one of the few "natural" passage ways to Lake Michigan.....this means no steps to the beach; just a gradual sandy path which you can easily pull wagons/coolers/strollers down to and up from the beach!

This is a : two baths, two bedrooms, plus a sleeping porch which can sleep two more and has its own entertainment area plus a washer and dryer, dishwasher, AC, outside beach shower, large flat screen TV with wifi & Apple TV, outside deck, outside charcoal grill and of course all new appliances (great carry-out in the area so don't need to use the stove much)!
....this is not a cookie cutter kind of rental. Last but not least, something else to consider for the future, is that the owner has also rennovated an adjacent cottage and two or more families may be able rent their own Lakeside compound! Can sleep 12!


A few facts for those who may not be familiar with the area: Lakeside is a 3 1/2 hour drive from the Detroit suburbs, a 90 minute drive from Western Springs, Illinois , There is daily Amtrak service to our big town of New Buffalo (ten minute drive from the cottage); numerous restaurants, shops, fruit markets, orchards ( blue berry picking in July ) wineries, breweries and distilleries populate the area. Harbor Country also offers golfing, Lake and river kayaking, fishing, boating, biking, horseback riding, casino gambling, antiquing, outlet mall shopping and spa days. Of course, the main attraction are the wonderful beaches and spectacular sunsets. This area is not only a great summer destination but a wonderful place to plan Fall girl's weekends or couple's retreats.
