Charming Historic Home Close to Downtown and Beach

Located in: Manistee
Want to stay in the comforts of a beautiful, well maintained, family home while seeing all manistee and surrounding areas have to offer? Welcome to the short house!

This early craftsman style home sits in an idealistic neighborhood just a few blocks from downtown manistee, the marina, the river walk, and the beach. We have named it the short house after the original owners for whom it was built in 1917. It simply has everything you need for a comfortable vacation.

On the second floor are bedrooms 1, 2, and 3 each with a queen bed. Bedroom 4 has 2 twin beds. There is also a queen sized air mattress and fold out sofa if needed. The full bath is upstairs as well.
On the main floor is a large living room, dining room, kitchen, half bath, and quaint 'breakfast porch'.

This historic home is beautifully preserved with lots of original woodwork and lighting fixtures, hardwood floors throughout, and glass pocket doors. However, bathrooms are completely updated and modern. Other modern 'must haves' include a flat screened tv, cable, dvd player, netflix, and internet. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to cook (if you want!) including a convection oven/range, full size fridge, microwave, coffee maker and small appliances, cookware, dishes/glassware and utensils. The basement has a washer and dryer and outdoor items including beach chairs. Beach towels are also furnished. A patio set is found in the back yard and the fantastic front porch has a comfy sofa waiting for you. In the spring and summer the yard is very pretty with flowering bushes and trees.

Short house is in walking/biking/short driving distance to the 1st street beach and 5th avenue beach, a public golf course, theaters, playgrounds, shopping, restaurants, galleries, live theater, a skate park, and much much more! Lake Michigan is less than one mile west--perfect for a morning walk on the beach!

We chose manistee as our 'home away from home' because of its beauty, history, location on the lake, small town charm, and also it's proximity to many other attractions and towns. These include sand dunes, amusement parks, wineries, golf, scenic drives, ski resorts, horseback riding, kayaking, and much, much more! Most within an hour of driving. When you are finished with your day trip, come back 'home' to rest in quaint manistee and the short house.
