Built in 2011; light and airy 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath beach bungalow. Quiet retreat steps from one of only three nationally certified 'clean beaches' on the Great Lakes, and the largest white sand beach in West Michigan. Start your day walking or fishing off the channel, watching the boats cruise by. Afternoons are great spent playing on the all white sand beach and in the clear waters of Lake Michigan. Evenings are wonderful watching the famous Western Michigan sunsets while strolling out to the Red Lighthouse at the end of Pere Marquette. Or, stay home and relax on the huge front porch, enjoying the Lake Michigan Breezes.
Master bedroom on the first floor, fully appointed kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Enjoy the fireplace in the family room on those cooler nights at the beach. Have fun heading out to the back deck to grill, or go down to the fire pit to make late light s'mores!
