Description

Nestled alone atop a 4 acre sand dune with panoramic views of Lake Michigan, this highly unique, contemporary, clean, fully equipped, artistically decorated cottage is an out of this world experience. Couple the cottage and the almost surrealistically beautiful, completely private site that includes trees, woods, & dune scape, and it is impossible not to fall in love.

Many public beach sites in the area and two are within walking distance (one at warm and shallow Stony Lake, the other on Lake Michigan). If you ever want to leave the wonderful cottage, fabulous deck & breathtaking views, the area abounds with wonderful orchards, farm markets, state parks, lighthouses, hiking trails, cultural attractions, arts performances, live music, dune buggy rides, golf, boat rentals, biking paths, & antique stores.

Site features: Parking for your vehicle is at the bottom of the 100 + stairs (w/3 built-in resting benches) that you climb to access the cottage & the four acre site. No worry, as a motorized tram pulls all your gear to the top. The partly wooded & partly open dune scape is truly the ultimate private, romantic setting. Once on this perch, the diverse views are so awe-inspiring that you may never want to move. Plenty of freighters on the horizon, stars in the domed night sky & wildlife on the dune to keep you interested. Wildlife includes bald eagles, pileated woodpeckers, hummingbirds, deer, squirrel & fox: get up in the morning to spot their tracks on the dune.

A trail behind the house leads to the tip top of the dune for even more magnificent views.

Cottage features: Highly maintained, unique, nearly round, 15-sided wooden hurricane style cottage has 6 sliding glass doors allowing stupendous lake, dune & wooded views from every room. The afternoon sun is so bright that you'll need your sunglasses in the kitchen! The wooden 100+ stairs, 2,000 sq. ft deck (also newly stained), & circular 5ft walkway around the rear of cottage provide easy access to/ from each room as well as lots of extra living space. Little private niches with furniture, plantings & views allow you to follow the sun around the decks all day & evening in any season.

Amenities: We call it luxury camping! Our modern, clean & well organized cottage has oak floors throughout, new stylish mid century furniture, large sisal floor rugs, colorful artistic decor, nice bedding & towels, ceiling & standing fans, quality kitchen tools & Fiesta dinnerware, stack washer & dryer, & elect baseboard heat. The huge multilevel decks are furnished with quality comfy chairs & cushions, a dining table w/ sun umbrella, gas grill, an outdoor hot shower (truly sublime), clothesline with a view, day lilies & loads of beautiful potted flowers ... which all make it hard to come inside to enjoy the highly cool cottage interior!
