SAND HOUSE: Great for families! 5 bedrooms-walk to private Lake Michigan beach

Located in: Harbert

*5 minute Walk to Private Lake Michigan Beach

2019 - due to higher waters this summer, the beach is narrower. Still there and usable, but no fires are allowed on the beach, so people are able to walk along the beach with ease.

The Sand House is an ideal spot for a vacation with your family, or a getaway with friends. Just 90 minutes from Chicago, this five-bedroom, two-bath summer house on two levels via spiral staircase will provide comfort, fun and memories for all. Just a one-block walk to the beautiful, sandy, private Harbert Woods beach, you can swim, build sandcastles, and watch spectacular sunsets. At the house, have your morning coffee out on the upstairs deck surrounded by trees. The combined kitchen, dining and living room area, with vaulted ceiling, allows everyone to be together, and there is a dining table for ten.
Property provides widescreen HD TV with cable and Blu-ray DVD as well as Wi-Fi. If you bring music on your iPod or phone you can connect to the integrated sound system that plays upstairs and downstairs in your vacation treehouse. You will find movies on hand for the kids or books to read for any age. In addition to the upstairs living space, there is a family room and many games, books, toys and puzzles. Or, relax with a glass of wine on the screen porch.
Book your stay today at the Sand House in Harbert Woods!
