The perfect spot to "relax on lake michigan"!

When you rent Eagle Shores you get:
- 2 kitchens, 2 living rooms
- Wood burning fireplace in the great room
- Powder room off of the great room
- 100' of Private lake frontage with no-bluff lake access

This house was an accident! We had purchased the home next door in 2005 and a family member bought the lot this house sits on. After 2 years and finally getting approvals and permits, they decided to sell and we took over ownership. "Relax on Lake Michigan" is what it's all about!

From the beginning we wanted to build the perfect casual yet nicely appointed retreat for ourselves and others. We also felt providing a private bathroom for every bedroom helps create the perfect private retreat even when vacationing with a few families.
