This is a unique 1940's cottage on a low bluff that has been completely updated,expanded and renovated to maintain the feel of the original
property. It is 'on the beach' with 160 feet of lakefront - three times the size of most of the properties in this beautiful enclave
of Manistee. Located 3 miles from downtown Manistee, this cottage is it's own slice of heaven.....very private and lovely.
There is a gourmet kitchen, beautiful original stone fireplace that is used year round, and the grounds are spectacular. Large front
(Lakeside) patio is perfect for a late evening bbque and sunset. The back (street side) patio is perfect for coffee while the sun
comes up. There are hiking trails and the Audubon society museum within walking distance. You also have MILES of beautiful, sandy
beach to walk day and night. This is the perfect getaway for a family.
This is a private home - there is no smoking, no pets and we do
not accept large groups who just want to have a party house. We
are respectful of our neighbors and we expect our renters to
maintain a peaceful decorum.

We all love Michigan (but have lived in Los Angeles since 1989). Buying this home in 2001 has allowed us to give our children unique summers experiences as they have been able to spend all their summers on the shore of Lake Michigan.
Jill grew up in Manistee and loved being on Lake Michigan and enjoyed the beaches all summer long. We wanted a place to get our family out of the city and be close to family and friends during the summer.
Relaxation, beautiful sunsets, great friends and family near by. We hardly leave the property because it is so peaceful.
