About the property

Side by Side Homes on Lake Michigan with Private Beach and Hot Tub

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. Spend lazy days at your private sandy beach, gather together for a campfire, grill dinner, soak in the hot tub, and enjoy breathtaking nightly sunsets!

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, 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, sharing recipes in the is what vacations are meant to be!

The area is known as Hagar Shores, but it's a place that doesn't get much attention in the travel guides. It's one of those sandy shorelines that has welcomed returning families for decades, and remains that "best kept secret". Situated perfectly between St. Joseph and South Haven, you're removed from the rest of the world yet it's easy to pop into either community for necessities and entertainment.

DiMaggio's is a throwback bar known for simple fare, awesome pizza, cold beer and long stories. The paneling is vintage, the Ms. PacMan in the bar certainly is a classic, and the place has a cult-like following among residents. No microbrews or fancy cocktails - this is a salt of the earth, cash only, take it as it comes type of place. And get sausage on your pizza - trust us!

Hagar Beach is just two miles away, and has a smattering of playground equipment. If you need an all day picnic in the park experience, we suggest heading to St. Joseph's bluff or South Haven's idyllic Kids Corner. In both communities you'll find 24-hour grocery stores, pharmacies, urgent care and other practical items. There's also opportunities for fishing charters, sailing charters, lighthouse visits plus fine selections of restaurants and entertainment options. You might have to stay longer to enjoy it all!

The Nature Conservancy owns several tracts of land in the area, including the Ross Property off C.R. 376. It's a wide path leading into a nature preserve with pines, oak, maples and a small inland lake. No facilities other than a handful of parking spots, but this is a great place to explore and watch for birds, fox, deer and more. Look up Dune Lake Campground - the entrance to the Ross Property is just across the street.
