This is the perfect spot to have a Lake Michigan vacation, directly across from Old Mission Peninsula. The property is wooded; sandy beach and countless perennial gardens. This classy comfortable, spotless beach house is situated in a beautiful spot on the east side (called East Bay) of Lake Michigan.
Lakeshore Road is a wooded, tranquil neighborhood, dead-ending into a private road leading you into a two-tract (no cars are allowed). Here you can walk safely onto South Bay Shore Rd or walk the beach into the village for fun shopping. The Elk Rapids area is an upscale resort offering many wonderful amenities. I enjoy helping my renters find their special events and their dream sight seeing adventures.
This home is truly one of a kind--with a five star rating. The home was built in 2000 with the vision of building a lakefront cottage emphasing the charm of a 1900's gathering place for the owner's family. This 3,600 sq. ft. home is a cozy, intimate, peaceful setting with a classic touch of beauty displayed in each room.
This beach house is GORGEOUS! The three queen size beds, two double beds and bunk beds accommodates twelve people. The house welcomes you the minute you pull into the driveway, past its beautiful flower gardens, trimmed lawn and majestic trees. When you walk in the front door, you know you selected the perfect vacation home.
This beach house has expansive views of East Bay and Lake Michigan. You will enjoy the incredible sunsets! Looking towards Old Mission Peninsula, the sunset dramatically displays blazing colors of orange, red and pink over the lake's horizon. In all of this glory the sunset disappears leaving a sky full of stars to be enjoyed.
Enjoy the patio surrounded by gardens, while barbecuing your favorite meal on the grill, as the children play in the sand and water. The sandy beach is magnificient. There are no nasty weeds, only the rich sugar sand to enjoy at this great beach.
It is perfect for fishing, boating, tubing, skiing, or just sitting in that comfortable beach chair with your feet at the waters edge, reading your favorite book that you never have time for.
Traverse City is 20 minutes south of the house. Traverse City prides itself with theater productions, brew pubs, charter fishing, the Opera House, two movie theaters, children's museum, etc.
