"The sun is out, the grill is hot, and the water is luke. If I can interest you in a swim and a little BBQ, just follow me..."
Get away from it all and enjoy the privacy of this "Pure Michigan" rambling cottage on almost 2 acres with your own private beach. Have the best of both worlds: a secluded cabin in the woods, right on Lake Michigan. Perfect for a family get-away, and large enough to accommodate multiple families and larger groups.
The beach is in YOUR backyard - no road to cross, and no neighbors or association to share with. There are 88 easy steps down to the beach. Our brand news stairs lead to a private beach - perfect for kayaking or boogie boarding. Or use our 18-foot floating mat to get the whole family out on the water!
**IMPORTANT NOTE**: We have a beach! (see photos) Lake Michigan reached historic high water levels last year, which impacted many local beaches and bluffs, but we are fortunate to still have our beach. Please contact us for a live update on current beach conditions. We will work closely with our guests, and we will be monitoring water and beach conditions in advance of your stay.
Enjoy the sound of the surf, the lake breezes through the treetops, and the beautiful Lake Michigan sunsets - while you relax with a glass of wine on the Adirondacks at bluff’s edge. Great backyard for family games: bags, badminton, and others.
The upgraded kitchen, island, and bar area, are set up for entertaining a large group. A chef's stove and stainless cookware make for grand meals indoors. Or cook outdoors on the new double grill with either propane or coal. A beverage fridge and stand alone ice maker will be your two new favorite kitchen appliances by the end of your stay!
Ground floor Master Bedroom Suite has its own fireplace, with private access to the deck, and recently upgraded master bathroom en suite. Two other ground floor queen bedrooms will each comfortably house a couple, and share a full bathroom. You can pile the kids into the two upstairs bunk rooms for a week of fun they will never forget! One room has 3 twins and the other has 2 twins, and there is a half bath upstairs. The twin beds are all on wheels, and can be pushed together to make a king in each room, so that the house will hold 5 couples, each in their own private room.
Satellite Internet with Wi-Fi access all the way to the beach allows you to stay connected, or you can leave your phone behind and relax off the grid. The house has central Air Conditioning and a backup generator to make sure that you are never without power. Newly added upstairs Air Conditioner makes for comfortable sleeping in any room.
The property backs up to Dee's Lakeshore Family Farm, which offers a wide variety of fruits and vegetables to purchase, as well as other offerings: free-range eggs, fresh cut flowers, herbs, jams and jellies, and house made honey. U-pick blueberries and raspberries in season.
Numerous wineries, breweries, quaint restaurants, farm stands, and antique stores, among other diversions, make for no shortage of things to do. Virtue Cider, Waypost Brewing, Evergreen Lane Creamery, Crane's Orchards, and Saugatuck Brewing Company among others make for a fun outing. Or simply lay in the hammock at the bluff to watch the clouds and the boats go by.
Make a day trip to Saugatuck or South Haven for lunch, both only 15 minutes away, and stop at Dee's farm on the way back to send us a message with any additional questions about the property.
