Our updated (2005), rustic-style, lakefront home on an all sand Lake Michigan private beach offers the following:
- Spacious 2500 sf 2-story home with 1.5 kitchens, 2 family rooms, 5 bedrooms and 2 baths with an adjacent 1 bedroom/1 bath rustic cabin.
- The property is surrounded by trees yet so close to the beach you will be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves.
- Enjoy gathering in the large white-washed, knotty-pine great room with a stone-covered fireplace (non-working), sitting area with 2 leather sofas facing the flat screen tv and views of the lake. The great room also has a dining area for 8, sliders to the deck and a newer maple kitchen with a table for 4.
- 2 bedrooms are on this level. The larger king is close to the full bath with a shower/tub and the cozy twin bedroom is off the tv area.
- A sun room with a panoramic view of the lake is right off of the great room and has a twin pullout.
- This floor has a more modern feel because it was built out new in 2005. It has 3 bedrooms, a full bath with laundry facilities, a mini-kitchen with sink, refrigerator and microwave and a nice family room facing the lake. There is also an alcove with a trundle bed.
NOTE: Inside access between the 2 floors is a circular staircase.

We love Lake Michigan! We love the sounds, the smells, the views and most especially the calm, peaceful feeling of being up north.
This home is most loved by anyone who loves a cabin-ey feeling, shades of vacations from long ago. The recent updates make it comfortable and are appreciated. The lawn area between the house and the beach is also enjoyed for games and relaxing. The small frog pond is a great attraction for the little ones.
Summer renters: Thanks to all for a successful second season. The weather was lovely and the lake was warm and we're happy to have contributed to your family memories.We value each and everyone of our guests and our only goal is to offer you a comfortable place to spend special time with family and friends.
Had a wonderful time at Sunset Shores. Evenings on the beach around a campfire were magical. The property was clean; photos and description accurate; Eileen a pleasure to work with! Spent time in Manistee, a charming town, and also took day trips to Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Dunes. Had a marvelous Michigan experience!
This Lake Michigan cottage provided the perfect get-a-way for our party of six. It offered just the right amount of bedrooms and each was charming and inviting. The accomodations and location absolutely met our expectations. The cottage was very clean and fully equipped, including a washer and dryer and we loved having wifi. We liked the location because we could get to Onekama or Manistee easily or the casino...... Of course, what makes this rental place special is that you are just a few steps away from the sandy beach and Lake Michigan sunsets. The martini deck is a nice addition for the older folks in our party, as well as for reading and morning coffee. Eileen was a pleasure to work with ~ very accomodating and prompt in her responses and with our deposit refund.
The pictures of this property do not do it justice! The beach is beyond anything we have ever seen before! Miles of pure white sand and water is perfect! You can walk out in the water on pure soft sand for what seems like forever - no rocks or seaweed!! The deck overlooking the beach and lake sat 10 people comfortably every night for the sunset!
The house is just perfect as well! So many rooms for guests and so much sitting area - tons of beds and furniture! The views from the house out to the lake are stunning! 2 kitchens, 2 family rooms, plus a sun room on the second floor with amazing views!
The property is very close to the cute downtown - lots of cute shops and restaurants - very close to grocery stores as well!
This property is very well maintained and the house was extremely clean upon our arrival! Eileen is great - really enjoyed working with her!! We will for sure be back every year!
Could not have been happier with our stay. Remote & quiet location just steps from the beach. The sunset deck directly on the beach was a highlight. Great experience with the owner. This was our 2nd stay at the location and can't wait for the 3rd.
This is a great location for 12+ guests of all ages. The low bluff to Lake MI made neighboring renters jealous. Great lake and sunset views from the main rooms, nice (small) yard area for lawn games, and of course a wonderful sandy beach (no rocks or seawalls to deal with). Close proximity to hiking trails, golf courses (try The Heathlands in Onekama!), grocery stores, towns of Manistee and Onekama made for the perfect location. The home is not the newest on the beach, but clean, clean, clean. Owner was available via phone to answer any questions. Everything worked, and beds were clean and comfortable. Would definitely return again and recommend to family and friends.
We just came home from a great time in Manistee at Hidden Shores. The home was very large and very, very clean. Its location on Lake Michigan was beautiful and the weather cooperated with four straight days of sun and water like glass. Eileen is great to work with and open to options. Check it out.
