The best beach in Michigan (in my humble opinion), just down the steps.
Stayed here for a week each of the past 2 summers. Quiet. cozy and just as described. Private beach is a bit of an understatement (had 10 or so people walk past our spot of beach each day, and sometimes not even that). Great backyard for entertaining kids or for relaxing. Close to town (and even closer to Dairy Queen!).
Will be back again next year.
