Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

Generations is the perfect setting for a large gathering of friends and family. Located just one block from Lakeshore Drive’s bluff-top views of Lake Michigan, the home has the makings of a classic beach cottage getaway. Douglas Beach is just .7 miles away--a great stretch to bike.

Step into Generations and let the vacation vibes wash over you. The bright, calming colors, beachy decor, and light wood paneling remind that the lake is not far away. Windows on the main floor let in loads of natural light. Comfy couches in the sitting and living rooms beg you to put your feet up and take a load off.

When it’s time to re-energize, the fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare a hearty meal. Cook out on the backyard’s gas grill and eat on the sunny back deck. Walk to Lakeshore Drive or bike to Douglas Beach to catch an immaculate sunset. The cozy bedrooms are there when it’s time to retire, with something for every guest. Kids will love the lofted bedroom.

What a great week - this a great place for a family vacation. Great kitchen, lots of space, close to the beach, close to town. Great for walking, bike riding, swimming, entertaining. The yard is super for games and kids. We will stay there again!

We were hosting a family gathering during the Holiday's and needed a home with bedrooms on the first level. This house fit that requirement and also offered a great open space in the kitchen/dinning area for everyone to gather.

This was my second time staying in Generations and, once again, I loved! It fit all 10 of us perfectly. We were in and out all weekend long for a friends wedding and couldn't have had a better location. Lakeshore Lodging was wonderful to work with and we enjoyed the stay!

Reviewer Comments:

My family (5 adults, 5 children) enjoyed everything about the rental on McVea St in Douglas, MI. The house was able to handle anything the 10 of us wanted - plenty of wide open rooms inside & delightful, flat backyard and large desk outside. Rental agency was very helpful with directions and add'l information about the area. We plan on a return stay.

Reviewer Comments:

I was pleasantly surprised at how much bigger this home is! I walked through the front door (not really knowing what to expect) and was so happy to see that all of the bedrooms were on the main floor and the upstairs had 4 beds as well! The back yard and kitchen is where we spent most of our time and we had plenty of space and felt very relaxed! Super close to the beach and town! The kitchen was STOCKED with pretty much any and all dishes you'd ever need. Plenty of silverware, cups, counter space, etc. Also, I was running late and the management company was SO easy going and were super easy to work with!!

Wonderful family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Generations cottage is the perfect vacation home for large families. Plenty of room for a crowd and enough space to have quite place to read or relax. The spacious kitchen and large backyard are our favorite places to hang out. The Cottage is clean, comfortable and in a great location. Working with the great people at Lakeshore Lodging make planning your vacation very easy.
