Absolute Gem on Lake Michigan
Our extended family had the pleasure of staying at the Sandpiper for a week this past August. The booking process was easy, and communication with the letting agent fantastic. The property looked beautiful in the online pictures but it impressed us even more in person. Very large, bright, comfortable rooms throughout the house and the finishes in the kitchen and bathrooms were all at a very high standard. The kitchen was stocked with more amenities than my own home! There are a fair number of steps down to the Lake, but they are shallow, easy steps with a well thought-out bench halfway down for a rest if needed (for my 85 year old father!). We noticed that Sandpiper was one of the few homes along this stretch of Lake Michigan that still had plenty of sandy beach - high lake levels have swallowed the others further down the shoreline. We felt very lucky indeed to have spent a week of glorious summer in this spot and would rent again without question. Thank you Sandpiper!
Second stay as good as the first
My extended family of 17 stayed at Sandpiper for the week. We are ages 13-82. The house is perfection, cooked in a lot in the very large well-equipped gourmet kitchen. The rooms are huge and comfortable. We had great beach space this year, for which we feel fortunate. Kathleen, the property manager is available, communicates well, and is responsive. You will not be disappointed.
We had the most wonderful time at this incredibly beautiful property both inside and out. Kathleen was readily available. Would definitely rent again. Loved!
We fit four families in the house and really enjoyed the beach and other amenities in the area.
A perfect place for our family’s reunion. Amazing space
Home Away from Home
Quite simply, no better home to enjoy on Lake Michigan with 18 people spanning 3 generations. This has become one of our favorite places to spend a week every year. The home and he hospitality are just the best you could ask for. Thanks for letting us share you great property!
