A-FRAME COTTAGE: LAKE MICHIGAN WATERFRONT, PRIVATE BEACH, SPECTACULAR VIEWS

Claybank Township Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, sleeps 6, 1 bath, lake, beach, large yard

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.

WONDERFUL PRIVATE LAKE MICHIGAN COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful vacation in Rachel and Chad’s beautiful home. This classic a-frame is very well kept. It’s very clean and extremely well appointed. I really appreciated all of the little touches that were provided…new soap for the shower, garbage bags, etc. It was so nice not to worry about a few things. Lots of games and toys for kids….great book and dvd library for them too. The views are amazing. We watched the sunset every night and enjoyed a fire on many. The beach is extremely private. I think we saw 2 other families the entire time we were there. Just a note, there are a lot of stairs that are a little tricky for the smaller children; so if you’re planning on using the beach, be sure that everyone can manage. This was a great vacation!

AMAZING VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a place to spend a week on Lake Michigan with fantasic views, an we found it! From INSIDE the cottage, you have a panoramic view of the lake from both the kitchen and living area through the 2 sliders on the lake side of the cottage. Step OUTSIDE onto the deck that spans that side of the cottage to enjoy your morning coffee, and afternnon beverage or a meal at the picnic table. At dusk, head out across the sweeping lawn to the bluffside patio to build a fire and enjoy the sunset with beautiful shoreline vistas. During the day, you can head down the 200 or so steps to what feels like your own private beach.

The accomodations are comfortable and clean. There are 2 bedrooms on the main floor and multiple beds in the large loft. The owners are friendly and easy to work with. We are returning in 2012.
