Every room guarantees a picture postcard view of islands, lighthouses, dunes, wildlife, and award winning sunsets and sunrises. The beauty of this house is that you will not feel cramped by your surroundings. You can be either fully engaged or spend quiet time alone, whichever you choose you will have the space you require. Kids especially will enjoy this house for the whimsical and entertaining features inside and out. The beach area in front of the house is unarguably the best beach in the state for what it offers and what it doesn't. The sand is perfect without rocks, the beach is large enough to keep an eye on the kids, the water is crystal clear with a very gradual descent, all with no crowds.
The cross village area has quickly arrived as a destination for discerning guests who do not require the experience of being 'in-town', but who would rather enjoy the up north experience at their own pace. All of the family attractions such as restaurants, cinemas, ice cream, and putt putt golf, are within a half hour drive away in Mackinaw City, Harbor Springs or Petoskey. However the very important amenity your privacy and a relaxed atmosphere in nature, are at your feet.

We 'discovered' the area a few years ago after traveling throughout the 'gold coast' of Michigan. We have always felt that northern Michigan should be a respite from the crowds and noise of even the smallest city or even neighborhoods. With that in mind a house on a rock-less beach in a pristine area of the state away from the crowds was what we sought. The search led us to Sturgeon Bay, and so we hope it has led you to to the best of pure Michigan. We have grown up in Michigan and have traveled extensively throughout the state looking for that 'perfect spot'. We think we have found the best of all worlds, a perfect sandy beach, the tunnel of trees, the privacy of Sturgeon Bay, yet close enough to Harbor Springs, Petoskey, and Mackinaw to provide some 'in-town' experiences without the traffic and crowds out of your back door.
Great emphasis has been placed with making our guests comfortable, which to us means peace and privacy. This property is not 'in town', so distractions associated with being close to a major highway are not present. The beach is what you see in travel magazines and ads about Lake Michigan shorelines, it will not disappoint you with it's tranquil beauty. We truly hope and strive to develop relationships with our guests to insure repeat friends. This will eventually allow us to personalize the house in a manner to give our guests the upmost enjoyment.
The very best part of this location is the views out of both the beach side of the house and the views back behind the house to the dunes and woods. Coffee in the morning on any one of the many decks or a glass of wine at sunset are truly great relaxing experiences.
