This lakefront property called "Gather at the Shore" features two homes just steps apart so your vacation can include the extended family and friends.
--> Please note summer reservations must begin or end on Friday. When you reserve, you are booking both homes. Click "More Details" for bed & bath layout and other info you'll find helpful!
The property is lovely with lots of mature trees providing shade and a wide clearing lakeside for full views of Lake Michigan. Gather together for a campfire, grill dinner, soak in the hot tub, and enjoy breathtaking nightly sunsets! Please note the hot tub is open May 1st - November 1st only.
Hagar Shore Public Beach is just two tenths of a mile away, or take a day trip to the stunning Tiscornia Park with access to the St. Joseph lighthouse, or South Haven's South Beach with access to the iconic red lighthouse.
Both homes are updated, but still casual and family friendly with many nice finishes and amenities. Modern full kitchens and baths, open layouts, fireplaces, and lots of sleeping space ensures you will have plenty of room to enjoy time together as well as plenty of space for privacy.
The East Cottage offers three bedrooms and 2 baths, and the lower level bedroom is where you'll find all the fun cousins! The Lake House offers four bedrooms and three bathrooms, a fantastic open kitchen and living space, and a deck with views of the lake.
Situated between St. Joseph and South Haven, you'll find this little enclave along Lake Michigan will help you disconnect from the rest of the world and focus on the fun of being with your family. Sunsets every night, long conversations by the firepit, and sharing recipes - that's what vacations are meant to be!
