My name is Sandy for a reason! I live at the beach from sunrise to sunset!!
Sandy Chapman purchased this house in 2005
We searched for 6 years before we found this property. We chose this home for its spectacular views of Lake Michigan, its close proximity to the water's edge, and for the five mile, uninhabited, pristine, curvy beach. It doesn't get any better than this!

Peaceful and tranquil are two words that describes this home. My two children and I absolutely loved our vacation here! My 8 year old son and 11 year old daughter still talk about how beautiful the sunsets were each night! This home had top of the line appliances and had everything you could possibly need to make your stay enjoyable! I hope to go back there soon!
Another great year with lots of sunshine. We really enjoyed the fabulous sunsets from the deck! The view of the lake from the house is so relaxing and beautiful! We will be back again next year for some more R&R. It was very much needed and we couldn't imagine a nicer place to stay! Thanks for letting us enjoy your lovely home.
