Just bring your own towels and you'll be ready to relax! 100 feet of sandy beach is in front of you for swimming or tanning! Or, walk 5 minutes south down the private road to enjoy the private Lake Michigan beach lot next to the channel which is available for your use, complete with a sweet gazebo for picnics.
Three marinas are within walking distance for guests arriving with larger boats. No boats are included with the rental but rent or bring your own kayak, canoe or speed boat and beach them right on the shore or tie your speed boat to the 30 foot dock that is on the property's beach. And you must swim out to or boat over the remains of a section of the Minnehaha, a large vessel which sank in the late 1890's. It is located just north of the channel in Lake Michigan in about 5 feet of water and 300 feet off shore!
Enjoy the small village of Arcadia as you explore the three parks with children's play equipment, the public beach, or the community center and library. You will find a great gift shop and ice cream store with that special small town flavor.
