If you are looking for total relaxation in a secluded location with a private family beach, this unique home will quickly become your favorite place to be.
Meander down the Firelane road through mature forests to the gated drive to your personal respite. Soak in the sounds of nature and peace as you unload for your stay. A wooded path leads around the nearby owners home to the Lake Michigan access. There are only 73 steps, with lots of resting places along the way, to the beach. This is where you will want to spend your days!
Back up at the home, you will find a main level with a sunken living room and huge stone fireplace, a full kitchen, dining with lake views, a bedroom and a full bath. The upper level loft is the Master Suite with a king size bed and full bath with soaking tub. Head outside to enjoy lounging, dining, and grilling on the lake side deck. Head up the stairs to the attached tower which houses private sleeping quarters with a queen sleeper sofa. Don't be surprised if everyone else wants to join you as this is a cool space also includes a rooftop deck for sunning and star gazing.
There is no internet or cable so you'll disconnect from the world and enjoy family time. Bring the board games and books.
Reconnect if you wish and travel north to the quaint community of South Haven or south to the lakefront community of St. Joseph. Just a few minutes south is DiMaggio's Pizza with dine in and take out options. This low key, cash only, throw-back eatery is not to be missed.
Please note: Water levels and beach conditions change daily. Some days there is no beach and some days there is a beach. Some days there are just rocks and some days there is sand. However, every day you can enjoy beautiful views from this cottage.
