3 Bedroom Beach House near Bay City State Park

This beach house has over 1900 sq. ft. of living space on one of the best beaches in Mid Michigan. The homes first floor has a spacious living area, fully equipped kitchen (all appliances, pots, pans, dishes, eating utensils, etc.), one bedroom (queen sized), and a full bath (both with tub/shower combinations). The living room includes a queen size sofa/sleeper and a table with seating for four in front of the fireplace. The upstairs has two bedrooms (one with a double bed and one with three twin beds), one full bath with each bedroom having a private entrance to the bathroom without leaving your room.

In the summer, families can enjoy the warm water to kayak, stand up paddleboard, sail the Sun Fish or Hobi Cat, fish (from shore, row boat or nearby lagoon), or just enjoy the private sandy beach and relax in the hammock, sit by a campfire in the fire pit or bicycle on the rail trail. Bring your own power boat to keep in the boat hoist. All of these are included at no extra cost.

Outdoorsmen can enjoy nature. We are located one mile North of the Bay City State Park, where you can walk or ride the nature trails, check out the displays at the Visitor's Center, and children can enjoy the new spray park. Even closer is the Tobico Marsh area. It has a walking trail that has several bridges and two 30 foot observation towers. The marsh it's self has many different kinds of wild life, including active beaver dens. The paved rail trail that runs from this house all the way around Bay City. Roundtrip is a 24 mile ride, but riding downtown is only about 6 miles where you can enjoy many local restaurants.

For those who like to fish you can find walleye, perch, northern pike, and bass throughout the Bay. The Saginaw Bay is known for excellent walleye fishing. We are conveniently located half way between the DNR boat launch on the Saginaw River and the boat launch at Linwood Beach Marina, both are just 15 minutes away. There is fishing year round, but the walleye fishing gets going with the first warm weather in the spring. In the winter, the Saginaw Bay lights up like a small city at night when the ice fishermen start up their machines to go home for the night. Duck hunters, we are conveniently located just 20 minutes South of Nayanquing Point and just 45 minutes from both Fish Point and the Shiawassee Flats State game areas. Winter activities include a seven mile, groomed cross country ski trail right out the front door and snowmobiling, ice fishing, and ice skating on the Saginaw Bay.

The property is located just two hours North of Detroit off I-75, only 45 minutes north of Birch Run’s outlet mall, and only 10 minutes from the Bay City Mall.

About Randy Swartz

We love this area so much that we moved here ourselves over 10 years ago.

Randy Swartz purchased this house in 2013

Why Randy Swartz chose Michigan

The homes for sale in this small stretch of beach is very limited. Many are passed down from generation to generation and never make it to the market. Others are sold before hitting the market. That's the case with this house. When we learned the neighbors were thinking about selling it, we bought it from them before it reached the market. The neighborhood is transitioning from summer time cottages to year around living to showcase homes.

Amazing rental with Everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this beach front rental. It was clean, organized and had everything you could possibly need! Paddle boards, Canoes, Kiakis, life vests, bikes, kitchen supplies. It was close to bike paths, marsh, store, downtown shopping/restaurant. Decor was fun and tons of sleeping options. We could not of asked for anything more with this rental!!

Another great week at the beach

We've stayed here for the last few summers and continue to enjoy this wonderful beach house. Great location. Comfortable accommodations. Attentive hosts. Beatiful views. We also liked going into downtown Bay City. Fun to see its recent development including the new City Market.
