|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
Relax at the A-Frame, located on over four acres with 200' Lake Michigan beach. It's on a high bluff so the views and the sunsets are incredible. Enjoy a large, private, sandy beach, great swimming, and long walks in either direction. There are many stairs (shared with 1 other cottage) to the beach, with benches for resting on the way back up. There's a wraparound deck on the cottage and another deck on the bluff, with a fire pit and chairs, for sunset viewing and marshmallow roasting. The cottage is well kept and has new appliances and flooring. This is the perfect spot for those who want to get away from it all, rest on the beach with a book, stroll in seclusion, bird watch, take photographs or just kick back and relax. The nearest store is 2 1/2 miles north. There's a great smokehouse, a local meat market, and a fresh fruit market all within an easy 15 minute drive.
For larger groups, our brother and his wife also rent their cottage which is next door. Contact me if you are interested in additional lodging.
Chad and I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan, an hour from our cottage. I'm a homemaker and Chad's an industrial realtor. We have 3 children ranging in age from 21 to 16. Chad bought the property and built the A-frame in the early 80s and we've enjoyed the spending time here ever since.
Rachel Versluis purchased this cottage in 1983
This is the most relaxing place to go!
When we want something to do other than the beach, there are so many options like golfing, shopping, biking on the trails, watching the dune buggies at the sand dunes, the amusement park, restaurants, marinas, state parks, festivals, horseback riding and the rodeo.
I think that the views of the lake and sunsets while relaxing on the deck are some of the best you'll find south of Sleeping Bear dunes.
Silver Lake Sand Dunes is 20 minutes north where you can watch vehicles climbing the dunes, or rent one and try it yourself. Double JJ Ranch is 10 minutes east and offers rodeos, indoor water park, horseback riding, Championship Golf and other activities. The city of Whitehall is 20 minutes south and offers Michigan Adventures Amusement and Water Park which is Michigan's largest amusement park. Fishing piers, marinas, charter fishing, shopping, restaurants, laundromat and grocery stores are also available in Whitehall. Ludington is 40 minutes north and also offers piers, fishing, fishing charters, marinas, restaurants and shopping.
