RARE FIND: LUXURY AND VALUE HOME ON LAKE MICHIGAN

Long Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

This charming, renovated and artistically decorated 5 bedroom 4 bath lake front cottage is the perfect setting for a reunion of family or friends. Comfortably sleeping 16, it can accommodate up to 4 families.

The main level of the house features a relaxing screened in porch with a wicker swing, chairs and glider. Plenty of dining and game tables are also provided for fun and togetherness. A spacious deck and two additional patios on the lake side of the house provide generous seating and beautifully furnished settings for dining, lounging, and relaxation. The front garden is protected from the street offering a quaint, quiet garden experience. Interior open living spaces offer stylish and comfortable places to watch TV (3 HDTV flat screens, DVD player and cable), listen to music (CD player, IPOD docks provided), write a letter (high speed internet / snail) or just relax in front of the fire place while watching both clouds and boats sail by.

The beach and sunsets are second to none, and can be enjoyed by simply stepping outside your back door.

The kitchen is newly designed and well appointed, featuring granite counter tops, a Thermador double oven, a 6 burner cook top, stainless steel side by side refrigerator, dishwasher, and garbage disposal. A second kitchen on the lower level offers extra space to prepare meals and expedite clean up with a second dishwasher, refrigerator and microwave.

Four of the bedrooms are furnished with new queen sized luxurious pillow top mattresses. Sheets and bedding have been chosen with both comfort (600 thread count cotton) and beauty in mind. An adorable bunk room features a double bed and two twin bunk beds. The lower level sun room provides both sleeping privacy and clothing storage, accommodating four people on two day beds with pop up trundles. A third day bed and trundle are also available on the lower level.

All bathrooms are new or have been updated. The upper level bathroom features a lovely soaking tub. Glass and marble tile provide charm and beauty in the other bathrooms, which are equipped with rain and hand held shower systems. A beach shower with hot and cold water is also provided.

The house provides parking for 4 cars and a gas grill.

Autumn joy as well as summer joy,

My wife and I as well as my two grown sons their wives and our two grandchildren spent just a weekend for our birthday celebration . The home is so beautiful and every detail has been considered for comfort and exceeded all our expectations. It may not have been the typical summer experience but the weather cooperated and gave us a wonderful range of fun. Sunny warm days walking on an almost empty beach, cool clear full moon nights, windy days with dune grasses blowing memories we wont soon forget. We are so grateful to have found this treasure and would love to sample it in all its seasons.

A wonderful getaway home!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Summer Joy. The house was warm and welcoming. There was plenty of space for someone to find a quiet place or for everyone to gather to eat or play games. The beach is very close by and the chairs on the way to the beach was a nice touch. The deck was nice and big for everyone to relax or for everyone to eat at the large patio set. We all felt like we really got away even though it was less than two hours away. We would highly recommend this home for a large family or one or two families.

A Wonderful Week

This is a very well-designed house. It might not seem big from the outside, but there's plenty of space, especially in the basement. We had six adults and eight kids, and we were quite comfortable. The deck, patio, and yard are all excellent, and it's a very short walk to a wonderful beach. Some nice perks were the iPod dock and the TVs. It was very clean when we arrived. The photos are accurate. We would definitely book this house again!

Perfect Getaway for a big family

This rental property has ruined us for life. Our family had never taken an extended vacation on Lake Michigan until last year. We spent almost three weeks at Summer Joy and they were the most relaxing weeks I've ever spent with our children. The place is absolutely flawless- perfectly decorated (with all the colors I love!!), impeccably cared for and of super high quality. I would die to have one of their waterfall-type outdoor showers at our house!!! All the bathrooms and the kitchen are remodeled with the attention to every detail. Yet, it remains a super cozy cottage that just facilitates the most peaceful and laid back environment to spend quality time together. There are 2 porches- our kids used both for reading, playing cards, games, guitar,...The adults loved coffee on the front porch overlooking the water...The kitchen set up is perfect for serving large groups with ease. I loved our family meals. There are also multiple TVs and a great movie collection that we took advantage of. Last but not least, the owners are the most attentive and caring people you will ever rent from. You and your entire family will never want to rent another place and will want to come back every year.

An AMAZING week!

Our family spent an incredible week at Summer Joy last summer. The house is absolutely gorgeous and comfy and is well-outfitted for big groups. Every detail has been paid attention to, and the caretakers welcomed us and make sure we were taken care of throughout the week. Every room in the house is beautiful, the deck is heaven, and having the beach just out the back door was awesome. I've seldom felt so relaxed and at home and pampered. If we could go back every summer for a few weeks, we would! THANK YOU SO MUCH SUMMER JOY!
