About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9 in sleeping areas))

Accessed by a private two-track road, the Krontoft Cottage is on the banks of Big Flower Creek and separated from the beautiful, sandy Lake Michigan waterfront by a low dune. A two-minute walk over that dune takes you to a beautiful, private beach. Or you can opt for a short rowboat or canoe ride to the beach with chairs, umbrella and cooler on board (all are provided by the owners). The creek can also be a great place for a winding canoe, rowboat or kayak trip up into the countryside. This cottage is also part of an association with 30 acres of shared woods for your strolling pleasure. Nature lovers relish the calm of the woods, the wildlife of the creek, and the sun and waves of the beach. It is all here.

The cottage itself is a 1970 A-frame with decks off both ends and a balcony off the upstairs bedroom. The creek end is solid windows and glass sliders. Furnished with a tasteful mix of antiques and lifestyle furniture, it provides the comfort of casual relaxation after a day of sunning on the beach, fishing on the creek, shopping along the lakeshore, golfing the great area courses, riding horses, tasting wine at the local winery, availing one of dune rides at Silver Lake or riding one of the world's longest roller coasters at Michigan Adventure. But many just stay with the cottage for the simple joy of reading a book on the beach or counting the fish, animals and birds that frolic in the creek.
