This Grand Beach House is ideal for a vacation getaway. The private Lake Michigan beach is a short walk or golf cart ride away(four passenger golf cart included). The home is located high on a wooded dune which offers you the seclusion and privacy for relaxation. The open concept with walls of windows and large deck overlooks the woods. There is also a comfortable screened porch which is great to spend summer evenings. In the Village of Grand Beach, there is a playground, golf course, basketball court, volley ball court and tennis courts.

The surrounding area has many available activities. New Buffalo, MI, which is 3 miles away, is a quaint town with unique shoppes and great restaurants. Michigan City, IN, is 8 miles away, has a lakefront park with summertime activities, zoo, large outlet mall and many restaurants. You could also tour the Barker Mansion, Old Lighthouse Museum, and International Friendship Gardens.

Further Details: Further away is Indiana Dunes State Park, Warren Dunes State park and many antique shoppes and restaurants. There are also two casinos within a few miles. In Michigan City there is Blue Chip Casino and in New Buffalo there is Four Winds casino.

Outdoor activities: Boating, swimming, biking, hiking, golf, tennis, basketball, miniature golf etc.

About The Owner: My husband and I have lived in the Village of Grand Beach for over 20 years. We enjoy the people and peacefulness of a small community. As sailors for over 30 years, we love Lake Michigan and it's beaches. The beauty of nature is all around us in Harbor Country.

Spacious House and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at this property with a total of 6 couples. It was the perfect property for all of us to comfortably stay at the house with the amount of space. Great location - only a short distance to downtown New Buffalo and the beach. Had a great time for the entire weekend! I recommend this property for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway!

A wonderful weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for my wife and 9 of her friends to celebrate a milestone birthday. It was fabulous. Saturday was the first snowstorm of the year and they were thrilled just to take it easy in the house and enjoy the quiet day away from their kids (and husbands). The floor plan worked great and there was plenty of space. The renter was great to work with and we would highly recommend this property...even in the winter.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

My family, friends and I rented this beautiful home in Grand Beach for a relaxing getaway before my wedding and it didn't disappoint. The home was wonderfully kept, clean and there was plenty of space for all of us. My family and friends loved taking golf cart rides down to the beach and around the neighborhood - everyone was so friendly! The back deck of the house was great for sitting in the sun & playing some corn hole (since it was a little too chilly for the beach). And the kitchen / dining table was large enough for all of us to sit around for meals & card games. We all had such a great time! It was the perfect, relaxing weekend before my wedding. I couldn't have asked for anything more! Thanks so much again for letting us stay at your beautiful home!

Spacious and perfect for entertaining

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a family gathering after our daughter's wedding. We used all the bedrooms & the sunroom for sleeping arrangements for 9 adults & 3 children. Everyone slept comfortably. I hosted a brunch for 15 adults & 3 children the next day & the large countertop in front of the cooktop area was perfect for serving everyone was ease. This home was lovely, clean, & the kitchen well stocked cookware & serving pieces. The golf cart was a nice plus. The yard toys in the garage helped to entertain the kids.

Gorgeous Property

  • 5 of 5

Our family and another family rented this for the Labor Day weekend. Gorgeous property, extremely well maintained home, plenty of room (kids especially enjoyed their own space in the finished basement), and so close to the beautiful beach. We'd definitely rent this again!

Awesome location and house

  • 5 of 5

We loved every min. of our stay and the golf cart was handy for those that are older in our family to get down to the beach. We had a lot of family stay with us and this house had enough beds, rooms and bathrooms. It's just like the pictures. Sunsets on Lake Michigan are amazing. I didn't sit outside much due to being 8 months pregos but, it was very relaxing. It's close to Michigan city and New Buffalo.
