Lake Michigan lakefront lies only steps from the beach!! A great family place, romantic getaway for a weekend, or rent the whole compound for your family reunion! Spectacular sunsets, panoramic views, fires on the beach, and plenty of fun in the water to create memories that will last a lifetime - and located only 1 hour from downtown Chicago. Enjoy the walk-out deck and patio under a huge magnificent maple tree for dinner on the grill or morning coffee and a newspaper. Open kitchen, beautiful master bedroom, fireplace, cable and everything you need for a relaxing getaway vacation is here and on the beach! And don't forget the brilliant colors that only a Michigan Fall can bring and the popular football season - only 1/2 hour to Notre Dame Football games. This is the prefect relaxation get-away. One more thing - no car is needed during your stay (we can arrange transportation to the cottage, if needed) - groceries, wine store, restaurants, and bakery are only a 10 minute walk along a peaceful tree-lined country road.
