Beach Retreat was everything we wanted and more!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 has been staying at the Beach Retreat for the past several years. The home is very well laid out and has excellent views of the park and Lake Michigan. Our kids enjoy the beach during the day and then the Rec Room in the basement area at night. This fantastic area and home keeps calling us back year after year. Your family will LOVE the home, the beach, the Rec room and the awesome location!

Great property for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a week, for a family reunion to celebrate the Folks' 50th Wedding Anniversary. This was an awesome place for us to do so! Plenty of room for all six couples/families. Sunning on the deck, walking across the road to the beach to play, exploring the Whitefish Dunes State Park, visiting neighboring communities for morning, afternoon, day, meal, and ice cream trips...the opportunities are endless! We wanted for nothing and the property manager was spot on for any assistance needed. If you go to Washington island, skip the Tram Tour - you'll only get 5 minutes at Schoolhouse Beach, but an hour at the Ace Hardware store. Bring your own vehicle instead. Enjoy! We did!

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable damage deposit $500
Tax Rate 11.0%

Cleaning Fees extra. The cleaning service is at $25.00 an hour. There will always be a charge but the cleaner you leave it the less it will cost. The reason for the cleaning charge is we don’t know how the last renters cleaned the bathrooms and kitchen so our cleaner goes over those areas and sanitizes those areas for the next renters, just to make sure! Cleaning usually ranges from 3 to 6 hours depending how clean the cottage is left. The cleaning will be taken out of your Damage deposit.

We supply pillows, blankets and comforters. You can bring your own sheets, pillow cases and towels etc. or we offer a “Linen Service", which is $150.00. The linen service included sheets, pillow cases, bath towels, hand towels, and wash clothes for all guests. We also supply dish towels and bath mats in the Linen Fee. Bed Sizes: 1 king, 3 Queen, and 7 Twins. If you choose the Linen Service we will send you a separate payment request for a $150.00 or request it in the initial payment
