Why Ann Spangler or Natalie Hart chose Norton Shores

I purchased the condo a few years ago because in addition to having a gorgeous view of Lake Michigan and access to a beautiful beach and pool, I found the family atmosphere compelling. More than just a beach getaway, it’s been a wonderful place for us to spend all or part of a summer, making memories and new friends in a beautiful vacation setting.

What makes this condo unique

The benefits of this condo include its beautiful location, right on the beach with wonderful facilities for the whole family, including a pool, tennis courts, miniature golf, and children’s programs.

A great place to relax with the whole family. The kids are so entertained that they don’t even want to leave the property.

Great Lake Michigan views! FAMILY FRIENDLY!

  • 5 of 5

We were WOWed the moment we walked in. The views of Lake Michigan are just amazing. The private balcony was the perfect place to sit and relax or have dinner with amazing sunsets. The condo was very clean and layout is bright and open. Kitchen was well supplied and the bathrooms have been recently redone and are very nice and clean. We visit Maranatha every year, but just found this place. We already have reservations to come back this summer. We are a Christian family and we ALL enjoy the programs Maranatha offers. (we have 4 kids ages 8-15.) I would say that for any Christian family, visiting Maranatha is a must-do vacation and this condo is icing on the cake. If you're not, then just as said in the description, nothing is required in the programing - but the benefit is your neighbors and fellow beach goers are going to be decent family vacationers. The atmosphere at Maranatha is safe and always friendly, clean and pleasant. It's an AMAZINGLY family friendly place!

Perfect choice for a perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the third time we had the opportunity to stay at this fabulous condo. Each year we found new adventures to explore. The location can't be beat-the view from the deck is phenomenal. Pool, playground and Lake Michigan just steps away. Condo has plenty of space and everything a family would need to insure a great vacation.

WOW, WOW, WOW

  • 5 of 5

Wow, was the first word I said when I opened the door and saw this beautiful place. It was also the word I used as a I left my master suite and walked down the hall to a beautiful Lake Michigan view. Sunsets are amazing from the deck. The condo is immaculate and has been recently remodeled. You are close to lake, pool and playground and then just 150yds away you are on a boardwalk along lake that feels so secluded like you are the only ones there. GREAT for families. I love running and was in running heaven. There are beautiful facilities and activities which you can participate in or not. We chose to participate in the heated pool,craft room, zip line, climbing tower, mini-golf and the sweet shop. Our faith is important to us so we chose to attend a session to hear an excellent speaker but that was optional and we enjoyed it. There is a optional $280 fee for those extra activities and we found it to be a good option. This is an excellent value for what you get. My wife and 2 daughters loved this place and would love to come back someday and was sad to leave.

Disappointed. Lack of Info in listing

  • 1 of 5

It should be noted that this condo is part of a Bible Ministry complex. This was never disclosed, nor was the fact that our reserved week was "Senior Week"....four young boys were not interested in hanging out with the 70+ crowd that was there. As a result of Senior Week, the staff was running the senior shuttle and they closed such activities as the rock climbing wall and zip lines....two of the big attractions for us when selecting this condo.

Additionally, the bunk beds in the second bedroom were extremely uncomfortable. All 4 of my boys opted to sleep on the floor after about 1 hour in their beds...creaking, squeaking, rickety unsupportive beds...and the boys are between 9-12 years old.

Needless to say, we were thoroughly bummed out by our choice this year....in fact, we came home early :( stayed at condo sat, sun and left monday. Would be nice if owner offered a partial refund and updated her listing a bit

Owner's Response: I'm sorry to hear that these guests did not enjoy their stay. I have updated the listing to indicate that the condo is located within the context of a Bible ministry. I do tell guests that it is part of a Christian conference center so that they know at the outset. There is no obligation to participate in the conference center activities; guests can take advantage of all the amenities like a pool on the beach, 1/2 mile of shared beachfront, tennis courts, kayaking, and so on. Most of the time the focus is on family activities but towards the end of summer there is the Senior Week, and there is no obligation for guests to interact with other vacationers. No previous guests (or my own children) had previously complained about the bunk beds, but I did check out this complaint and feel that the bunk beds were squeaky. I have replaced them with wooden bunk beds and have had no complaints since. Most guests have given the condo and its setting rave reviews. I'm sorry it didn't turn out that way this time.

Great escape

  • 5 of 5

Location is everything. Stay right on the lake with an awesome view. The property is extremely clean and has everything you could ask for.

Sit outside and watch the sunset. Activities close by for all ages. Private beach that is clean and not crowded offers a chance to get away from it all. Tired of the sand, there is a pool available that has a snack shop and offers a great time for young and old alike.

This property gives you a chance to get away from the day to day grind and enjoy your family while you enjoy the Lake and the sun
