Description

Summer Weekly Rentals Begin and End on Friday.

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 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. The Upper Master bath is fairly open to the living space below so best to use the main floor bath for total privacy.

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 up the main road is DiMaggios pizza with dine in and take out options. This is a local favorite not to be missed. Bring cash, no credit cards accepted.
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.

Great location and great place with a few glitches The location was perfect for our family getaway vacation to the beach. The house sits high above the beach with some great views. The house is well equipped and spacious. Its also has a quirky charm with retro features and a very custom design. With comfortable living space and a huge deck, we enjoyed our stay very much. There were, however, a few glitches to note. The upstairs master suite bathroom is a loft above the living room. Both the tub and toilet do not have a wall separating them and they are open the living room. This is an obvious privacy problem and we ended up not using this bathroom due to that. The "tower" bedroom with the pull out sofa did not have any curtains or blinds on the windows. Since this area has windows on all sides (normally a plus), the room becomes very bright when the sun comes up (aka: people staying in this room must be early risers). Finally, the spiral staircase to the master suite is beautiful, but luggage is a challenge to get up and down due to it being narrow and no other way up to this room.
