Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7- 8)

The house has a beautiful view of Grande Mere. In the Grande Mere area there are miles of clean sandy beaches, unique sand dunes and woodland areas for hiking and discovering. In Winter, you can walk to sledding, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing opportunities in less than 5 minutes .

My house is a minute walk away from Lake Michigan with miles of public beach and dune area. Grande Mere has gorgeous sunsets and quiet mornings. You will find the peace and relaxation you are looking for, yet we are close to many Sunset Coast towns - 15 minutes to Bridgman, Sawyer, Baroda, and Harbert. Several award wining wineries, breweries, and great restaurants are close by. 20 minutes to New Buffalo and the 4 Winds Casino, also 15 minutes to the communities of Lakeside and Three Oaks. 15 minutes to St. Joseph, 20 minutes to Benton Harbor. We are located off of 1-94 exit 22. Close, but yet a world away.

What makes this house unique

I grew up in this house and have always loved the peace of the beach, woods and dunes. I had an opportunity to take my childhood home and make it a welcoming place for other families to enjoy the serenity of Grande Mere. I made several upgrades while continuing to have the charm that the house and yard can offer. People tell me they feel so at home and welcomed when they are here. My hopes is that you will feel the same way. Randi Wilhelmsen

Beautifully maintained and well-appointed home - the perfect Lake Michigan family retreat

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed here with my two youngest children for a much-needed weekend getaway. Our lives have been very stressful lately and this house had a calming effect from the moment we walked inside. It was especially so for me; last year I lost my grandmother, and the house was decorated in such a way that it reminded me of her. The dining room was particularly difficult to leave for that reason!

This is very likely the last trip I'll get to take with my daughter, who is 23, before she moves out on her own. I'm so glad we made good and lasting memories here. We are strapped for cash, but it was money well spent!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the heartfelt review. The house has been in my family for a little over 60 years, The house was built in the late 1920's, so it does have that cozy warm feel. I am so glad that you were able to share moments with your family for the week-end. I hope you can make it back !!

Cozy weekend away from the city!

Cute house that was clean, well stocked and had plenty of room for us to spread out. Great location to hike the dunes and take a walk on the beach!

Owner's Response: Thank you Megan. The beach house is 22 miles up from the Indiana state line off 1-94, making it an easy drive from many cities. I am glad you could enjoy a walk to the beach and dune area. Thank you for your response.

Great place,Great location

  • 4 of 5

House was just perfect. House sits on top of hill between Lake Michigan and Grand Mere State Park. Its within reach of the highway, but far enough that no traffic noise heard. There was plenty of room. The beds, pillows and linens were extremely comfortable.The kitchen was a nice size and had everything you would need to prepare meals. Coffeemaker uses grounds and filter not Kcups. Large dining room made meals a pleasant experience. This was our first time in Stevensville and it definitely wont be the last. Thanks

Owner's Response: I thank you for your kind words. The house has a view of the lake when leaves are down from being up on the hill. It's a wonderful feeling to be in the living room with the fire burning and to be able to see the lake past a few houses out the west windows. There is also the view of Middle Lake from the east windows to enjoy. I am glad you found the house comfortable and well equipped. I hope to see you back soon.

We had a wedding in the area so we decided to book this house. It was a great decision. The house is very well maintaned and the deco is beautiful. Lots of room for all of us and the kitchen was fully equipped which was great. Loved having the fireplace on the living room on the cooler nights. We look forward to going back and staying there again

The house has a unique cathedral ceiling and a working stone fireplace in the living room. Beamed dining room with a working red brick fireplace and includes an antique dining room set. 3 separate bedrooms and an additional sofa bed. Two full baths with shower and tub. We have a large private yard, with a stone BBQ area, new deck area off the kitchen, and a sand fire pit area for relaxing.
