If you seek solitude and nature’s beauty adjacent to the abundant activities offered in western Michigan, Sunset Dunes is the place for you!
Miles of sugar sand dunes and beaches are yours at the sole location where the 538,756-acre Manistee National Forest meets Lake Michigan. The 10-acre parcel is on Lake Michigan and abuts the National Forest and Nordhouse Dunes; lower-Michigan’s only designated wilderness area. The house is placed approximately 400' from the lake's edge. The vertical elevation change from house to water is approximately 45' over a walking bridge and walking surfaces on gently rolling dunes.
Sunset Dunes is one of a dozen houses along a one-mile stretch on the Lake. Inland dunes restrict views of other homes. The architect-designed private home is equipped with modern appliances, gas grille, television w/DVD player, radiant floor heating, stereo system, foosball, and a stone wood-burning fireplace. The 100’ tall hardwood and pine trees, private beach-access, ravine-bridge, decks, hot tub, hammock, dunes, and sand-bottom lake offer a multitude of serene and relaxing vacation experiences for the entire family.
After sunbathing, swimming, kayaking, beach walks, or hiking at Sunset Dunes, your entertainment options expand with the nearby cities of Manistee and Ludington, where you’ll find shopping, dining, theatre, championship golf, tennis, fishing, boating, canoeing, bicycling, and many other activities. Relax on the deck as you view rolling dunes and the sunset vista while sipping your favorite beverage. At night, your private beach awaits you for campfires and gazing at shooting stars or the Milky Way, interrupted only by views of the distant lighthouses at Big Sable Point and Manistee Harbor.
