"Relax on Lake Michigan" in my 3br/2ba waterfront private ranch home...more than a cabin or cottage...a real Lake Michigan paradise! Miles of Sandy Beach with an amazing view of the lake plus access to the shore. Enjoy our Sunroom, Hickory Kitchen, living room with 55" Roku tv, a Master bedroom with private bath plus 2 other bedrooms, one with a queen and the 3rd with a queen and twin bunks. Even a HOT TUB on the deck with a view and access to the lake! *SEASONAL. Inquire to get dates when it is open.

Have a bonfire at our Fire pit steps from the house. A perfect way to end your day, watching the sun set or the stars rise.

Our deeded private beach is shared with neighbors. Access is down our stairs through/over/in front of the creek to the north. (time of year and amount of rain affects size and depth of the creek)

Want more excitement? Then gear up for river trips, charter fishing, world-class golf, CASINO excitement or even an airplane ride. With all there is to do - or not do - this will be the spot you will want to return again and again.

We rented various homes on Lake Michigan for 18 years before finally realizing our dream in 2004 of owning a small piece of Lake Michigan lakefront. We enjoyed sharing this home so much we ended up building another home 2 miles north in 2008 and rent that one as well.
