LAKE MICHIGAN FAMILY HOME WITH SPECTACULAR BEACH. 7BR/3.5 BA

Manistee House Rental Photos and Description

Lake Michigan Beach Home, 7 bdrm., 3.5 bath

Location! Location! Location! Situated at the end of Portage Point this 6 bedroom, 3 bath home offers panoramic views of Lake Michigan from nearly every window and vantage point. Behind you lies Portage Lake with its’ glistening waters dotted with sailboats where you can also observe a SUNRISE!!

Have your meals, read, lie in the sun or take in magnificent Lake Michigan sunsets as you relax on our huge deck with large table and many deck chairs.

Just steps to the spectacular low bluff beach…NO STAIRS…perfect for sunning, swimming, beach walking, sand castle building, kayaking or enjoying a nightly bon fire.

Walk out to the pier that runs along the North Channel from Portage Lake and enjoy the boats coming and going as you take in the exquisite view from this location.

Where Portage Lake channels into Lake Michigan and adjacent to the “turn around”, this area was voted one of Michigan’s best beaches in “Traverse” magazine.

The large open floor plan of this home features a great room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the big lake. There is a stone fireplace, flat screen TV, cable, WiFi and a CD player with many CD’s. The den offers books for all ages, board games, puzzles and a loaded toy box for the little ones. The dining area boasts a farm table that comfortably seats 8 – 10.

Also on this main level is a fully equipped kitchen with electric stove, microwave, dishwasher, granite island with bar stools and every utensil you would possible need. Two bedrooms on this level each have a queen bed, closet, dresser and night stand.

The master suite on the upper level offers a queen bed, a large bath with Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. The loft off the master suite provides a cozy place to read, relax or just enjoy another view of Lake Michigan.

Three additional bedrooms, each accommodating 2 people, are on the walk-out lower level. Also on this level is a full bath, living area with TV, DVD and an air hockey game.

The surrounding area offers great fishing, including charters, a variety of distinctive dining locations, golf courses, casino, wineries, shopping, hiking and exploring. Located half-way between Manistee and Frankfort, there are many places to explore. See the welcome book at our home.

In addition to the main house, there is a Bunkhouse located above the garage that includes a queen bed, two twins and a half bath. A deck facing Portage Lake is connected to the rear entrance. Designated parking and an additional charge for this facility is available.

This was our second year in this great home. It was a VERY hot week- 90 to 95 degree days and very humid. A few newer fans would be welcomed but for the most part it was tolerable with the breeze coming off the lake. This is a wonderful house, comfortable beds, nicely equipped kitchen (beautiful serving pieces!) and comfy sofas. Our only complaint is the grill... for such a nice home a more upscale and clean grill is expected. Truly a great place to stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks for returning this year. A new Home Depot grill is on the way.

This was a wonderful location and was certainly enjoyed by my three children, their spouses and the 5 grandchildren. The accommodations were as advertised, as well as the evening sunsets and sitting around the nightly fire.

Perfect vacation house

A group of professional women from several states get together to play pinochle, make great meals, talk about books and movies, and mostly enjoy time together in beautiful Michigan. The house was perfect for us. Comfortable, clean, well stocked kitchen and great deck for sunsets- we look forward to next year!

What a fantastic place! We had a great time at the beach, pier, deck, dunes and boating. The bonfires on the beach and star lit sky's were incredible.

Thanks for opening up your home to us!! Can't wait to do it again.
