Overview

About the property

4,000 square ft home with steps to 100 ft private beach on Lake Michigan.

*** Please note that this property does not allow large parties, events or weddings*****Also please note that in 2017 the water levels in Lake Michigan were at an all time high which reduced the amount of beach significantly. The owner cannot accept responsibility for loss of beach as we have no way of knowing how weather can effect it. In past years we have had lots of sandy beach but in 2017 there was very little beach we are hoping next year will be different in the south west Michigan area ***

Nestled in a very private area north of Pier Cove right on the shores of Lake Michigan. Just listed April 2013, this elegant 4,000 sq ft home with its open layout, gourmet kitchen, spacious living and dining rooms is the perfect place to spend time as a family. The home features four magnificent decks that overlook a private beach accessible by stairs. Relax in the screened porch or around the outdoor fire pit and enjoy the famous Michigan sunsets.

This home is the perfect size for one to two families looking for a luxurious vacation. The sleeping accommodation can comfrotably accommodate up to 6 adults with children (4 to 6 children - teenagers considered to be adults). Additional features include: wireless internet, laundry, gas grill, outdoor shower, large screen TV on lower level, gas fireplaces, jacuzzi in master bath over looking the lake. The kitchen has been outfitted with everything you could ever possibly need for entertaining.

This property is a very exclusive Saturday to Saturday weekly rental. Please do not inquire about shorter periods as there are no exceptions. The home is only rented for a short period during the summer months as it is used by the owners and their family. There are no fall or spring weekend rentals. Also weddings and events are not allowed on the property.

Nearby tourist attractions include: downtown Douglas, Saugatuck and Holland, famous for shopping, restaurants, jet skiing, kayaking, farmers markets, dune rides and the arts.

Additional attractions include: Krupkas for blueberry picking, Cranes Orchard for fall apple picking, award winning wineries, and microbreweries.

For the Golf enthusiasts we are 10 minutes from the Arnold Palmer signature Golf Course 'Ravines Golf Club'.

For the outdoor lover, the 50,000 acre Alegan State Game Area offers boating, fishing, biking, hiking, skiing, and bird watching.

This is the perfect vacation home for anyone looking to spend quality time as a family, and create everlasting memories !!!

Wonderful Lake Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathered here from 3 states to enjoy Lake Michigan and our time together. The home was perfect for our needs, including young children. The home itself was spacious, bright, clean, and supplied with everything our family needed for comfort and fun. The yard space is amazing, with plenty of space for little ones to run, and a perfect fire pit making amazing bonfires possible while watching the beautiful sunsets and well into the darkness. The only problem we ran into this year occurred a week before our stay, when a huge storm over the lake washed away the bottom steps to the beach, and basically the water level was so high there was no sandy beach left during our week. For our beach time we drove to the county park just 2 miles away. We recognize that this is an act of nature that no one is responsible for, so this cannot affect our critique of this home. Liz is easy to work with; prompt, helpful and very accommodating, as was Mark, her concierge. He was prompt with answers and assistance. We would definitely like to stay here again.

A wonderful week on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several Lake Michigan houses, and this one certainly delivers. The beach area is as private as you may ever get, and very kid friendly. The home itself is gorgeous, and easily accommodated our 8 adults and two children. Communication with the owner and concierge was quick and courteous and the house was immaculate. Great view, great water access and a house you don't mind spending a rainy day inside. Strongly recommended if you have a crowd!
