Description

Summer rentals must begin and end on Friday.

There are but a few magical places that we experience in life that will create memories for us that will last a lifetime - Shade by the Shore, which is located 95 North Shore Drive North and can accommodate up to 12 guests and is pet friendly, is such a place. This amazing home will inspire laughter, cheers, giggles, embarrassing stories, and most importantly warm hugs and soft tender kisses. Shade by the Shore is filled with such love and positive energy that you, your family and friends will forge such memorable experiences during your stay that the stories of those adventures will be treasured and shared for several generations.
As the pictures clearly show, Shade by the Shore is a family resort nestled in an abundance of trees where the natural harmony of life helps quiet our restless hearts and tame our souls. The beauty ofLake Michigan is just a short walk away to the 1st Street access. The backyard deck is a great place to sit and listen to the trees talk as a gentle summer breeze from the lake rustles the leaves of the lush green canopy. It is also a great place to enjoy a glass of lemonade with a new book from Black River Books in South Haven, or grill delicious organic vegetables that you purchased from one of the many Farmers markets found up and down Blue Star Highway. The large table on the deck is ready for laughter and teasing. The rustic firepit and children's teeter-totter and swings are timeless memories - like those from our childhood when life was simple and adult chores were the last thing on our mind. There is something magical and instinctively primal that we feel when we sit around a campfire at night. The cicadas serenading the dancing embers of the fire and the tree frogs adding rhythm to the chorus of the night. The hot tub, which is open year round, will only enhance the evening outside as it soothes achy muscles and pulls out the anxiety and stress buried deep within your body. Think about how wonderfully romantic the hot tub would be with an autumn canopy of color all around…or, fat lazy snowflakes gently drifting to the ground, as the steam of the water teases the crisp winter's air.
The amount of space within the kitchen here…is a dream come true for any Family Chef. Clearly, there is ample space to store all those amazing fresh fruits and veggies you bought, prep the meal, and then begin to weave a spell of fancy with the new seasonings and spices you bought from a day trip to Saugatuck from the Spice & Tea Merchant. The KitchenAid Pro-
Series Stainless Steel appliances and the two side-by-side Pro-Series Ovens will make the Gastronomer’s heart sing and face smile with delight and anticipation as they dance, twirl, fold and whip their creation into the night's pièce de résistance. The large dining table can be decorated to perfection with fresh flowers from the Farmers Market in SoHa, as the place settings are set, and the Chef’s Musical continues to playout at the other end of the room. This amazing space is ripe for laughter, embarrassing stories and soft moans of delight as the Chef’s creation melts and filters across your tastebuds.
The Living Room’s warmth calls out for an after dinner scotch, or coffee as a small fire crackles and snaps in the fireplace. There is this feeling you get when you walk into this room that stirs up emotions and memories, be it from personal experience, a book you have read, or a scene in a movie that you watched. It is a timeless shared experience of warmth and tranquility that seems to pull at your heartstrings when you open the French Doors and step into this room. It’s almost like the voices of your past echo in your ear - the kind of memory where you can hear your Grandparents, Aunt or favorite Uncle telling you as story as you envision them sitting there in the deep leather chair and you sitting in front of the hearth listening with intent.
The bedrooms within Shade by the Shore will comfort you, your family and friends and help your bodies embrace a deep and relaxing night's sleep filled with sweet dreams. The beds are like a slice of heaven to support all the aches and pains you may have from a long day’s adventure, or the stress of the hustle and bustle you are on vacation to ignore. The linens are soft and nostalgic - awakening memories you have long since forgotten about. The ensuite bathrooms make life with a big tribe so much easier. There are no fights or bickering about who gets to use the bathroom first, or someone is taking too long - and what a blessing that is for those with teenagers!
For the Gen X’ers, there is a ping pong table and pool/air hockey table in the lower level. Time to school the mouthy teen with a backhand spin just across the corner of the table! Or let them free range and explore outside playing in the woods as you take a moment or two for yourself in the library.
Shade by the Shore is located in a perfect place for day trips north, south and east towards Fennville and Allegan. It is easily accessible from I-196, making life so much easier for those of you who are new to this area to find it. The ease of finding this amazing home is just a small benefit - but one that will feel like a godly gift after a long day at the office and a few hours on the road.
The beauty of Michigan, its forests, the blue-greens of Lake Michigan and the amazing sunsets await you, your family and friends here. All you have to do is make a reservation and the memories that last a lifetime will all fall in place as they should.

Your team is superb! Several of us own vacation properties (one cousin, Jerri, owns "Sliding Rock Cabins" in northern GA - she and her husband manage 30+ rental homes). We were all very impressed with your entire operation! Cousin Jerri is going to be copying your procedure of offering "first dibs" to returning visitors.

Overall wonderful experience! If the owner would take care of the things mentioned elsewhere, it would be an absolutely PERFECT property.

This property is everything you see on the website and more! It is a great property for 10 adults and I am sure families would like it also. There is nothing to want for. Having the number of bathrooms is such a plus for senior people!
