Our 2.3 acre property with 186 feet of direct Lake Michigan frontage is in the historic Pierport community. Our beachfront is a direct walk out to a beautiful wide sandy Lake Michigan beach. It is possible to walk several hours both north and south, on this lovely beach north to Arcadia and south to Onekama. The property also includes a small stream which flows out to Lake Michigan and a large flat yard perfect for all types of lawn games. A large firepit area and romantic swing overlook Lake Michigan's special sunsets.
The main house includes: three bedrooms downstairs, full bath, living/dining room, and kitchen. There are two bedrooms and a half bath upstairs. The screened porch has additional seating and a dining table overlooking Lake Michigan.
A separate guest house is fully self contained with one bedroom and a kitchen with all new stainless appliances. It also has a living/dining room, full bath with whirlpool tub and washer/dryer. It is great place for family members who would like a bit more privacy. The guest cottage also has a pull out queen sofa bed in the living room. It was totally redone in 2011.
There is a flat screen HDTV in each house. Both cottages have fireplaces. WiFI/Internet is provided.
The main house is a classic Lake Michigan cottage originally constructed in 1889. There is a pretty wooded area across the stream from both cottages. Woodlands are also across the street.
This is a beautiful waterfront setting and a perfect place to enjoy a classic Pure Michigan summer. We live here in the Spring and Fall of each year. We only rent for 10-12 weeks in the summer. We do not rent for weekends or during the other seasons of the year.
Additional pictures are available on request.
Property comes fully furnished with bed linens, towels, beach towels, dishes, silverware and cooking utensils.
Furnished with classic furniture and some antiques.
The Lake Michigan sunsets never cease to amaze.
We spent three years looking for a Lake Michigan waterfront property and were fortunate to find this very special property. To preserve the serenity, we do not allow jet skis/personal watercraft on the property.
This beautiful Lake Michigan beachfront property is accessible with only three steps. We really liked having the two separate cottages (one contemporary and one classic).
Northwest lower Michigan's wonderful towns are easily accessible with both Sleeping Bear dunes and Traverse City only an hour north. For our golfing friends, Arcadia Bluffs Golf Course (Michigan's #1 public course) is only five minutes north.
The two closest small towns to Pierport are Onekama to the south with several good restaurants, tennis courts, a library, a bank and a grocery store. Bear Lake to the east has several grocery stores, a bank, library and a good breakfast restaurant. Manistee -20 minutes to the south has a hospital, casino, several large grocery stores and a nice river walk. Frankfort -20 minutes to the north has a wonderful local cinema, a hospital, the Gwen Frostic studio and a large grocery store.
About an hour north on M-22 are the Leelanau Peninsula and Sleeping Bear Dunes-most beautiful place in the United States. Traverse City is also an hour north with numerous attractions, great shopping, excellent restaurants and several multi-screen cinemas. Downtown Traverse City is really a special place. There are also several local farm stands on M-22 and weekly farmer's markets in Elberta (Thursday), Onekama (Friday) and Frankfort, Manistee and Traverse City on Saturdays.
