Relaxing, beautiful, friendly get away!
This is the third year that I - and my pups - have visited Jim's rustic cabin. The setting is secluded and quiet - perfet for a relaxing get away from work, TV, telephones and computers! Great places to hike, read from the extensive book collection, Bar-B-Q, enjoy a bonfire - or just lay on the beach - which is incredibly beautiful - and on most days - almost deserted! Because I can take my goldens along, they get a vacation too!
Within 10 minutes I can buy meat from a local smokehouse, fresh fruits and veggies from a great market (which also has a wonderful petting zoo) and fresh ice cream and dairy.
This is a great spot to consider when you want to get away, eat great - and relax!
We stayed at Sandy Shoes for a week in October for our anniversary. This was our 2nd time staying at this wonderful cottage. We had wonderful weather almost daily and were able to take advantage of Lake Michigan and the sandy beach with our happy pups regularly. We highly recommend this cottage for a relaxing, refreshing, unplugged getaway! It is well maintained, clean, cozy and just perfect. We can't wait to return again!
Most relaxing vacation in a long time
We were looking for a quiet get-a-way for our anniversary, and we found it. The cabin is a little dated, but is very clean, quiet and comfortable. Enjoyed using the Kayak and having campfires by the beach. Neighbors were friendly and accommodating. Stoney Lake Inn restaurant (about 2 miles away) was a great place to grab some dinner a time or two.
Perfect, relaxing getaway
We stayed at Sandy Shoes for one week in October. The location is perfect and the amenities included were above our expectations. Aside from bringing our towels and sheets, the cottage was fully stocked with everything you may need. We cooked almost every night with no probs. Clean cottage that is well-taken care of. Dog friendly which is fantastic! The owners were friendly & courteous.
There is close, easy walking access to the beach which we frequented daily. Soft sand that is easy on your toes! We took a ton of hikes around the area too. Plus there is a really great farmer's market in Muskegon downtown which is a short (30min) drive away.
I'd recommend this cottage for anyone who is looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday city life to enjoy a relaxing, serene vacation. We had limited phone reception (which was a plus for us!) and we brought a few DVDs to watch and books to read.
Relaxing and very enjoyable!
Thank you Jim for a wonderful week! This little cottage packs so much fun and relaxation. Clean and comfortable and close to many fun attractions. Two days of rain kept use comfortably inside the cottage to relax with reading and games. Boy we needed this peaceful vacation. The beach was spectacular with a few magnificent sunsets! So glad we could bring our two little fuzzy friends along also!
Great location, perfect to get away from it all.
Beautiful views, gorgeous private beach. Away from it all, but a short drive to Silver Lake for dinner and shopping. And it was pet friendly, so our dogs were able to enjoy the beach with us as well. Would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to escape the fast lane and simply relax!
We are 15 minutes from sand dune rides, 20 minutes from the largest amusement park in Michigan, and close to 6 golf courses, including a championship course. The area is rural, so it is good for bicycling. We are also close to a 22 mile long rail trail. There is a local butcher with excellent steaks, a winery, a dairy with great ice cream, and cherry orchards with wonderful desserts; you should never be hungry. It is about a 4 hour drive from metro Chicago or Detroit. Other Activities: Beachcombing
