At this time water levels are so high there is no beach accessibility at the house. There are three beaches close by: Township beach 10 driveways South; Duck Lake State Park beach 3 min drive North; and Muskegon State Park beach 7 min drive South. Most of the renters love Duck Lake State Park beach because the channel runs through and the water is a bit warmer.
Also we are asking renters to put out bonfires at 11pm because we are located in a residential neighborhood.
No Fire Works allowed.
SEE MAIN HOUSE RATES under RATES tab.
There is a second dwelling (cottage) on the property.

Many majestic Lake Michigan waves have rolled onto the shoreline since the Scenic Shores House and Cottage were built in 1928. Our family has owned the main house and small cozy guest home since 1965 and we continue to enjoy the stunning picturesque view of Lake Michigan to this day.
The main house will comfortably sleep 9 people with three bedrooms (1 King bed, 1 Queen bed, 5 twin beds) and two bathrooms. The extra large bathroom on the main level has been recently updated and has a beautiful ceramic tile shower. The kitchen is newly remodeled and includes a large table setting for several people.
At the end of the day you can comfortably sink into the two leather couches in the living room and watch the 50-inch flat screen TV set into the wall above the large brick fireplace. Sit outside on the spacious deck with a cup of coffee in the morning or a favorite beverage at night and watch the sun set into the lake while sail boats pass by.
A brand new stairway from the yard descending all the way to the lake includes a landing half way down so you can sit and enjoy nature and the view all at once.
Whether you're coming to relax or looking for adventure you'll have no problem finding it all in close proximity!
