The design is a tree bedroom home with a awe-inspiring two story atrium to serve as a central light source for the three top floors. Four dormers in the loft illuminate the house and allow different light patterns to enter, depending on the time of day and the season. The foundation was split into two and stepped into the hill. The lower portion houses a triple garage; the mezzanine level holds a laundry and utility room. Up a few steps to the entrance connecting the kitchen and breakfast room to the expansive living and dining rooms all defined by partitions, railings, and floor level variations. Low ceilings were used to create intimate rooms while the atrium accentuates the tree house feeling of the home. The views are impressive from the master suite and sitting area on the upper level of the house.
A two-story deck provides twice the views of Lake Michigan. A bridge from the deck leads to a shaded gazebo closer to the shore and to a stairway that connects the home to the sand and water.

The private beach at this house cannot be beat. Stevensville is a little off the beaten path of the Union Pier and New Buffalo area, we love it here. The deck for viewing sunsets is perfect! There is a nice big grill and deck eating area which we really enjoyed. The beds are very comfortable! There are 62 stairs to get down to the beach, but it didn't bother us at all and we were lugging our 22 pound grandson down and up the steps. Since it is a private beach we just left our beach umbrellas and beach toys secured under the wooden Adirondack chairs at night. During our one week stay we saw only a couple other people on the beach and they were walking by, so we had it to ourselves. In addition the owner was very responsive and nice. We had a couple minor issues while we were there and she responded extremely promptly to our emails. You will not regret renting this house for your family getaway!
We had 11 people (6 adults and 5 kids aged 18 mos to 7 years) stay in the house for a week in August. We had a great time and would recommend it to large families. The kitchen amenities, family entertainment (tv) and patio furniture were all great. Thanks.
The home and property are described thoroughly by the other reviewers and we agree it was a spectacular place (but very private, which we enjoyed). One other important point for potential renters to consider is the quality of the owners. This owner was extremely prompt in all of our needs before, during and after our stay. We encountered a difficult situation (unrelated to the property) and the owner was incredibly helpful and handled our problems with the utmost care and responsiveness. We highly recommend the home and the owners!
This was the perfect beach house rental for our 2 families. Their private beach is great. The sunsets were amazing. Our 6 kids had so much fun collecting to rocks and sleeping together in the loft. The grocery store wasn't far. They were stocked with everything you'd need including many dvd's, board games and beach toys. The beds are all very comfortable and the house is kept clean and very organized. The owners are very nice. Very
accommodating and easy to reach. We will definitely consider returning soon. Thanks for a great vacation!
This is a great house! Fantastic location offering stunning sunsets, beautiful furnishings, and very important......comfortable beds with lots of pillows! We'd love to stay again.
We had a wonderful time staying in this gorgeous home! It was exactly as pictured and fully equipped with everything you could ever want including beach towels! Kitchen had every appliance and service piece imaginable. Home is directly on the beach and was totally private as we only saw a few people all week. Our kids had a wonderful time playing in the water which had a gradual descent and a sand bar. We would love to come back every year! This was a very memorable vacation spot with all of the amenities. Thanks so much for a great family vacation!
