Read or chat in the living room, grill dinner outside, or sunbathe by the pool; the choice is yours. WiFi works on the porch, but may not at the pool.

We converted it to a contemporary home in the mid 80's. Up 8 steps, the main floor has 12' ceilings, huge windows, and the original wood floor. Shared areas include a large living room, formal dining room (up to 10), eat-in kitchen (seats 5-6), game/puzzle loft, library, and a 1/2 bath. Out the back French doors is the screened porch. On the lower level (down 8 steps from the entry) are 4 guest rooms, a shared and a private bath, a fitness area, and a refrigerator/freezer used only by the guest rooms. My private rooms are in one corner of this floor. Outside you'll find a large yard, heated pool (weather dependent, but approx. June 15-Sept. 10), grill, fire-bowl with wood, picnic tables, swing-set, and basketball. (Facilities are for registered guests only.) My friend described the included breakfast as a 'Country Schoolhouse Breakfast'; juice, cereal, yogurt, pastry, and, of course, coffee, tea, and cocoa. On summer weekends, I also add 1-2 hot items. Any day could find something I picked up fresh at the market the day before, like Michigan strawberries or blueberries.More

From beginning to end my experience with Mimi was very positive. Communication before hand was thorough and timely. But I was most impressed when we arrived. We were warmly greeted, and she gave us a tour through her clean and spacious historical home. Everything was...More

About the neighbourhood
This is primarily a summer beach area. But many live here year around, and there's always something to do. There are numerous restaurants, wine/beer tastings, shops, groceries, antiques, marinas, kayak rentals, farmer's market, and a casino. Within a half hour is another casino, a delightful zoo, a state park, and 3 shopping malls. There are biking and snow mobile trails.
Getting around
You will need a car to get around. The nearest restaurant is about a mile. I do have bikes to borrow and a wagon to pull to the beach (1.5 miles).
