The design is a tree bedroom home with a awe-inspiring two story atrium to serve as a central light source for the three top floors. Four dormers in the loft illuminate the house and allow different light patterns to enter, depending on the time of day and the season. The foundation was split into two and stepped into the hill. The lower portion houses a triple garage; the mezzanine level holds a laundry and utility room. Up a few steps to the entrance connecting the kitchen and breakfast room to the expansive living and dining rooms all defined by partitions, railings, and floor level variations. Low ceilings were used to create intimate rooms while the atrium accentuates the tree house feeling of the home. The views are impressive from the master suite and sitting area on the upper level of the house.
A two-story deck provides twice the views of Lake Michigan. A bridge from the deck leads to a shaded gazebo closer to the shore and to a stairway that connects the home to the sand and water.

We had 11 people (6 adults and 5 kids aged 18 mos to 7 years) stay in the house for a week in August. We had a great time and would recommend it to large families. The kitchen amenities, family entertainment (tv) and patio furniture were all great. Thanks.
The home and property are described thoroughly by the other reviewers and we agree it was a spectacular place (but very private, which we enjoyed). One other important point for potential renters to consider is the quality of the owners. This owner was extremely prompt in all of our needs before, during and after our stay. We encountered a difficult situation (unrelated to the property) and the owner was incredibly helpful and handled our problems with the utmost care and responsiveness. We highly recommend the home and the owners!
This was the perfect beach house rental for our 2 families. Their private beach is great. The sunsets were amazing. Our 6 kids had so much fun collecting to rocks and sleeping together in the loft. The grocery store wasn't far. They were stocked with everything you'd need including many dvd's, board games and beach toys. The beds are all very comfortable and the house is kept clean and very organized. The owners are very nice. Very
accommodating and easy to reach. We will definitely consider returning soon. Thanks for a great vacation!
This is a great house! Fantastic location offering stunning sunsets, beautiful furnishings, and very important......comfortable beds with lots of pillows! We'd love to stay again.
We had a wonderful time staying in this gorgeous home! It was exactly as pictured and fully equipped with everything you could ever want including beach towels! Kitchen had every appliance and service piece imaginable. Home is directly on the beach and was totally private as we only saw a few people all week. Our kids had a wonderful time playing in the water which had a gradual descent and a sand bar. We would love to come back every year! This was a very memorable vacation spot with all of the amenities. Thanks so much for a great family vacation!
My family (9 Lake Michigan swimmers and lovers) and I had a wonderful time at this amazing home on Lake Michigan. My husband and I grew up in the Chicago area and spent many magical vacations on Lake MIchigan. Now we are renting homes (this was our third) and try to rent on the water. This home is an architectural treat, as well as a comfortable vacation place. You really don't need to bring anything with you because it is so well stocked. The beds are super comfortable, which means a lot to my husband and me. There are a lot of stairs but we got used to them quickly! Best view of the lake is from the gazebo. I highly recommend this home to other Lake Michigan lovers. Our main reason for traveling that far is to swim in the lake, and so that was our daily treat. We visited Warren Dunes State Park, a short trip south, to climb the big dune (we call Mount Baldy) and body surf. Very close by is Meijers, a store that carries just about everything you might need for food, drink and supplies (produce and beer variety were amazing). We left with a lot of wonderful memories. Thanks!
