|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Built in 2008, our lovely home is more than a cottage or cabin but a wonderful full amenity home located directly on the sandy shores of Lake Michigan.
Our goal was to create a place for couples, families or groups to gather. All 4 bedrooms are en suite, each with their own PRIVATE BATH plus the first floor also gives you a 2nd kitchen, 2nd living room and the 4th full bath. There is also an open loft on the 3rd floor with queen pullout.
When you rent Eagle Shores you get:
- 2 kitchens, 2 living rooms
- Wood burning fireplace in the great room

This house was an accident! We had purchased the home next door in 2005 and a family member bought the lot this house sits on. After 2 years and finally getting approvals and permits, they decided to sell and we took over ownership.
From the beginning we wanted to build the perfect casual/elegant retreat for ourselves and others. Because we also own the home/beach to the south, we can offer both homes for rent to groups up to 27.
Eileen purchased this house in 2007
We love Lake Michigan! We love the sounds, the smells, the views and most especially the calm, peaceful feeling of being up north.
This home is loved by all because it is surrounded by trees yet right on the water. The details are top quality and everyone loves having their own bath.
It was the perfect way to celebrate my recent retirement from teaching. We even saw an eagle from our windows! The house is beautiful and spacious. Our own private beach on Lake Michigan was super. Our grandchildren swam and played on the beach all day- every day (except for our two trips to the dunes north and south of Manistee) We had some very warm weather during our stay, so the lake felt great even for the middle of June. One night the grandchildren were still swimming at 9:00pm. We think that they are growing gills! We felt lucky that our stay was during the longest days of the year. Longer days meant more time to play!!
We stayed at Eagles Shores for 3 wintery nights. It is right on Lake Michigan and we were able to watch the icy edge of the shoreline grow each day. The house is spacious and has three levels. A beautiful two story view of Lake Michigan. It is very clean and offers all the comforts of home along with a gorgeous lake view! Consider car pooling as the driveway does not hold many cars. The owner is easy to work with and an experienced rental owner. We would recommend this to a large family that wants to spend time together, no matter what season it is.
We visited this magnificent Lake Michigan home for a golf trip that took us to Arcadia Bluffs, only 15 minutes North. The group I brought to the home was blown away by the amenities and the cleanliness of the home. Eileen take sgreat pride in her rental properties and it shows. We rented the entire home including the apartment, as well as the home next door. The two homes comfortably accomodated our group of 16. We loved being centrally located to Manistee National Golf Course and Arcadia Bluffs. We also found time to play the Heathlands which is a local course in great condition. I would reccommend this house to any large group for a number of activities (golf, hunting, family reunions, beach bums). If I had to list a con about this property, I would say that parking is a little tight, so take that into consideration when arranging your travel.
My family had an excellent time at this beautiful house! We were celebrating my parents' birthdays and turned the events into a really enjoyable family vacation. The house was big, beautiful, and clean- with plenty of space for us all to be together (cooking in the big kitchen, eating at the dining room table, or playing games in front of the fireplace in the living room) and also plenty of space for us all to have time apart (having our own bedrooms and bathrooms made it feel like we were instantly "at home"). The location is fantastic- right on the water with views of the lake from every bedroom (so no one gets a bummer room!). I think my family is already thinking about next year...
This place is definitely for people who love Lake Michigan! Perfect view, perfect sandy beach. Gorgeous sunsets! Loved watching the waves and hearing them at night in my sleep. Even got proposed to on the shores of the beach at sunset. (I said yes!) Secluded area, warm fireplace for chilly nights. Not far from local Manistee or lighthouse looking or leaf peeping in the Fall. Only part I would change is the spotty wifi "Lake Michigan" connection. My cell phone tower wasnt available and I had such exciting news! Ha! I guess I had to wait until vacation was over to share it. Oh well it was for the best. When you want away from it all this is the place! Thanks for sharing your home Eileen!
Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home on Lake Michigan. The house was spotless, included every amenity we could ask for, and the views of the lake from the bedrooms and living area were fantastic. We loved falling asleep to the sound of the waves, the short walk through the bluff to the beach, the well-stocked kitchen and comfortable living room furniture. One minor quibble: the wifi is very weak at the lake house (not sure if the apt. is better as we did not try that), so if you MUST have connectivity you may be disappointed. Just accessing email was spotty, and forget trying to download pics on a webpage or search. We could have cared less, as we were there to relax and get away from work, but it is something other travelers may wish to know so they are not surprised. Everything else was oerfection!! Hope to return next year...
I was part of an extended-family trip to this lovely home, which included little ones (as young as 1) and older ones (as old as 73). Everyone can enjoy this home as the access to the beach is so easy. The hot tub is great for days when the weather isn't perfect. The location of the home is great as well. We canoed, went to a winery, walked the river walk, and hiked Sleeping Bear Dunes. However, the best times were just lounging on the beach with loved ones (in the sun or over a bonfire). You will not be disappointed in this home. The views are just amazing! No worries at this home! The owner is very helpful and welcoming.
