This beach front cottage offers the beautiful sunsets of the summer and the clean sandy beaches of Western Lake Michigan. Our 3 bedroom 900 square foot cottage has been the owners residence for the past 15 years and 2008 is the first year offered to our guests. Situated on 5/8 of an acre this heavily shaded property offers open space of lawn to play baseball or croquet, or to just sit in the arbor, drink a cold lemonade and enjoy the fabulous country wild flower gardens. The stairs to the beach are fifty feet away where you can situate yourself on the expansive private beach area (patrolled on weekends to keep strangers off), or just place your beach chairs on the public beach side. If you need a break from the kids, we offer a babysitting service so you can enjoy one of the fine local restaurants, or have a Certified Red Cross Life Guard watch your children at the beach while you enjoy a nap on our hammock in the shaded, breezy back yard. Both services available at a nominal charge.
