About Jim Howell
We are a large family who spent many years camping at Lake Michigan as our three children were growing up. Some of our very best memories include the sand and waves of Lake Michigan. Now the time we spend here includes our many grandchildren, friends and extended family as well and we are still making wonderful memories.
Jim Howell purchased this House in 2013
Why Jim Howell chose Mears
This home is large enough for us all to be together in such a peaceful setting. There is always something to do and space enough for everyone to be comfortable. The only thing we like better than being together is being together at Lake Michigan. We enjoy sharing this home with others who love this Great Lake as much as we do.

Fantastic place and even better property-owners!
If you're looking for a home with all the comforts, privacy but room for the whole family, lake vistas, and plenty of nearby activities, dining, and shopping …when you want it – THIS IS IT! From Poppy (me-Grandpa) & Grammy, to our 3 grown children with their better halves, and our 5 grandchildren ages 5 to 15, everyone has only positive things to say and are already talking about repeating.
Best of all were the owners who went above and beyond, in my opinion, to ensure we were comfortable and happy with their home. Good example… they made a special trip to bring their repaired golf cart out to the property for our use! I viewed the golf cart as a ‘nice to have’ but wasn’t a key item in our home choice. The fact the owners made this trip AND brought out a new grill when I mentioned an issue with one of the knobs on the old one was over and above any expectations I would have!
Thank you, Jim & Maureen.
Beautiful house with great space for multiple families.
Another great long winter weekend with friends, food, and games. This house has space for it all- from the 3rd floor bunk room for the kids, great bedrooms, nice open floor plan, fireplace, large kitchen, and views of Lake Michigan from everywhere. Space for our group to all hang out together, or find separate spaces, as the mood fits.
This was our third stay here. It's a wonderful comfortable home. Beautiful view of Lake Michigan. Nice beach within a short walk. Grandchildren love having the large upper floor room to stay together in. The owners are very attentive to any needs that might come up.
Taste of heaven!
Best place by far for a family vacation! A little something for every age!
New, large, well appointed, well equipped and unbelievable view.
We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren at the Lake Michigan House and everyone was very impressed. With 8 adults and 9 grandchildren (ages 18 to 12), we had plenty of space for sleeping, eating and lounging around. Nice cooking utensils plenty of dishes and pots and pans.Our grandchildren are very active and enjoyed swimming and kayaking in Lake Michigan right off of the stairway. Beautiful walking trails abound and the nearby sand dunes were a special treat for walks, runs and climbing.
The Howells have thought of everything and called us shortly after we arrived to make sure everything was okay. The pictures of the home interior do not do it justice. Inside is like a north woods log cabin - but brand new. We would definitely recommend this property for a large group.
The view was amazing! Nice home and the owners were wonderful to work with. Enough beds and space for our entire family. The golf cart was a plus too.
