LAKE MICHIGAN DIRECTLY ON WATER, ALL SAND! JUNE & LAST WEEK OF AUG 2014 OPEN

Manistee House Rental Photos and Description

10 bedrooms, 8 baths, 4 kitchens, 4 family rooms, sleeps up to 27

This is the perfect large group location right on a sandy Lake Michigan beach.

- 2 separate homes plus 1 cabin and 1 beach level apartment. This is a great spot for a large group with different interests: the 'beach people', the golfers, shoppers, the casino crowd....anything and everything being available within a 10 minute drive.

Located between the Victorian port city of Manistee and Onekama, a lovely town located on Portage Lake, you will be charmed by the amenities both villages offer while also enjoying the beauty and privacy of our Lake Michigan homes.

OUR GOAL...: ...is to provide families and groups of friends a wonderful retreat to create memories together. We know the cost of families going on vacation can be quite expensive. By renting our 2 homes to your group, we offer you a chance to stay in a much sought after location made more affordable by sharing your space with friends and families while not foregoing your privacy.

PHOTOS are important. Email me for additional photos of our retreat center.

PRIVACY...: ...can be a big issue when traveling with a large group. We feel that between the 4 living areas, 4 kitchens and 7 bathrooms, our retreat center will allow your group to enjoy each others company while having space to get away when needed.

Please note that while many homes that offer sleeping space for large groups, ours offers privacy as well.

WHAT'S YOUR GROUPS' TIME WORTH?: Time together is what's important. When deciding the perfect place for your group, consider the following:

- Easy access to a variety of interests

- Private space

- Access for the yound and the elderly

Great Setting for Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the entire property for a family vacation. Our group had 23 adults and two children. We had a great time. The property accomodated our large group with no problems. We were able to enjoy each others company and yet still have some privacy when needed.

The setting is fabulous. The beach is right out the back door. It was sandy and perfect for swimming. We set up an awning for the week and enjoyed it daily.

The four kitchens and refridgerators really made this the ideal setting for a large group. We have been in other homes where there was only one kitchen for our large group and it made eating a challenge. Here we were able to have multiple groups eating at different times with no problem.

We didn't do all the activities we had planned since there was so much to do in the area. We are looking forward to coming back again next year if we can arrange it.

Perfect Getaway

The pictures on-line do not do justice to this Gem of a Getaway. I brought 20 women to the Shores for an annual golf trip and we were all blown away and how beautiful and peaceful the Shores were. So nice in fact they didn't want to leave and go golfing. Everything was clean and well maintained, and working with the owner was a wonderful experience. I have been setting up this trip for 17 years and this had to be our best trip ever. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to enjoy time together with family or friends. I already had several of my group asking about how to book for their own family vacations. In a word it was FANTASTIC!
Owner's Response: My husband and I truly love sharing our homes and this response makes my heart sing! Our intention has always been to offer a place that inspires, helps people relax and enjoy one another's company as well as a way to get in touch with nature.

We are grateful for everyone who chooses are home and hope that our guests short time on Lake Michigan creates a lifetime of wonderful memories.

We celebrated my parent's 50th anniversary for a one week vacation at The Shores with 27 family members. The property fit this occasion perfectly. Sunset views from both homes are spectacular, beach is wonderful and easy to access, proximity to town is nice for day trips, homeowner is great to work with, layout of homes provides space for large group to congregate as well as space to find quiet time. A gem on beautiful Lake Michigan.

What a great place for a large gathering, we had a family reunion and everything was fantastic. The compound was secluded enough that we felt safe allowing our 5 year old to do her own thing, actually I barely saw her the whole week, she loved hanging out with her cousins. The houses were spacious, clean and we all slept well. Never having been to the shores of Lake Michigan before, I didn't expect the beach to be as beautiful as it was, no bugs, no rocks, just sand and dune grass. The only drawback was that the week went by so fast, (I had nothing to bitch about), that I was back at work too soon. Everything was first class and we couldn't have had a better time, Thank you for the chance to stay at your wonderful home, wish I was there now.

We had a wonderful time on Lake Michigan. Both homes were clean and comfortable. Cabin is rustic and cute. Plenty of room for our extended family of 24 to spread out. Beautiful sandy beach. I highly recommend this rental for family reunion vacation gatherings.

Notes:
This is a true retreat for family and friends. The layout of both houses allows for privacy when needed....and with a group of 20-27 that's bound to happen! Our private beach and yard is perfect for the whole group to gather together yet between the 4 living rooms and 4 kitchen areas, you won't be in each others 'hair'.
