About the property

3-bedroom, 2-bath quaint cottage on the big lake in a private association

This three-story cottage, built in 1927, is nestled in the woods just a stairway away from the lapping waters of Lake Michigan. The bay window in the dining room offers an exquisite view of the Lake and its famous breathtaking sunsets.

Outdoor living includes a small screened-in porch through French doors from the living room, a deck off the porch which is shaded by trees, new in 2016 a large sunning deck, and a bench half-way down the short staircase to the beach ... and of course you have 100 feet of beach all to yourselves!

The comfy living room offers satellite TV and a DVD player. WIFI is also included. The kitchen has everything you need, even a dishwasher.

Upstairs are three bedrooms; one with a king-sized bed (or 2 twins), one with a full-sized bed, and one with two twins. The first two bedrooms have gorgeous views of the lake, the smaller one looks out into the woods. A full bath completes the upstairs.

The unfinished basement level provides a very basic bathroom with a toilet, sink, shower and a washer and dryer.

Located in the private Little Point Sable Association, this cottage is a fabulous getaway for families and friends. You have complimentary use of the association's three well-kept tennis courts, a large playground, and the world's only 18-hole crolf course (a crude, but fun, form of golf!).

The Silver Lake sand dunes are about 10 minutes away. The charming village of Pentwater is about 15-20 minute drive.
