Lovely street and perfect beach access

  • 4 of 5

Seven of us enjoyed staying at this house. It is on a great street with amazing Lake Michigan views. Had perfect weather the entire time. House is a little older but it worked out fine.

We stayed for a long weekend in August 2017 with our three young kids and it was just perfect for our needs. The house is huge and super clean. The decor is older, but the house and furniture and property has been well cared for. The kitchen and bathrooms were stocked with all the essentials. We were concerned that our kids wouldn't be able to handle going up and down the stairs to the beach (there are at least 70!) but it wasn't a problem even for the 3 year old. The stairs are steep but in good condition, leading to a really nice little stretch of super-private beach. The drive to activities in St Joe/Benton Harbor is very short. We really had the best time and would highly recommend a stay here!
