Big Cozy House In The Dunes (5bed/3.5bath plus loft) - Nested In Wooded Hillside

Lakefront Holiday home with kitchen and patio
Pristine yet cozy 5 bedroom home plus loft with 3 full & 1 half baths on three levels only two blocks from the beach!! Home is nestled in a wooded setting on a hillside sloping down in back for tree-house like views of wooded back yard and a walk-out lower level (one lower bedroom w/sliding glass door to private deck). First floor private bedroom with queen bed and en-suite full bath. Separate half bath on first floor. Upstairs master bedroom with queen bed shares full bath with loft. Basement with two bedrooms and full bath as well as game room/additional bedroom and separate laundry. Large living room with gas fireplace and vaulted ceiling open to loft above with beautiful windows/light. Light wood throughout. Modern kitchen open to dining room which opens out thru sliding doors to back deck! Spacious back deck with natural gas Weber grill for barbecuing. Perfect Lake Michigan dune cottage! At Stop 2, so close to Washington Park, the Zoo, the splash pad, the Marina, Fish Camp restaurant, and the Lighthouse/Pier. Beach is in great shape here (no seawalls needed, lots of sand). Enjoy the serene back yard view with trees and birds while you sip your morning coffee and plan your day on the beach or out and about. Three of the bedrooms have queen beds, the loft has a twin daybed which has a trundle that pops up to same level, so like a king (almost), and lower level bunk room with two sets of bunk beds (twin/twin and twin/full/twin trundle - for up to five kids - maybe more on the floor...). House is new to the market so take advantage of low rates... Lots of stuff to do nearby - Outlet shopping, breweries, restaurants, golf, Lake Michigan with it's endless possibilities. We can refer you to top deep sea Lake Michigan Captains for a day of Salmon and Trout fishing. Full internet with WiFi and google pucks to keep the signal strong as well as Cable TV in several rooms.

Deer Hunting Trip 2021
Found the property to be exactly what we were looking for. Plenty of beds for the men on the trip and plenty of baths as well. Cleanliness was good and plenty of pots, pans and utensils! The only real complaint I have is possibly the cable TV. It seemed to be very basic cable without ESPN etc. There seemed to be apps on a couple of TV's but were not very technologically savvy so we couldn't figure that out... Just a Comcast with a sports package would have been great! Thank you for having us!

Perfect Size Home for what we were looking for
No complaints, all of us enjoyed the home, which was just as described in the listing. We found several things to do in & around the area.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful home near the beach
We stayed for a 60th birthday party. This home is large, beautiful, well stocked, and well maintained. The neighborhood was quiet. It was a short 8 minute walk to the beach. Owners were great with communication. Would definitely stay here again!
