Make your home an enchanting getaway with a beach cottage in the Shorewood area near Saugatuck which offers views of Lake Michigan.

"Set in private Lake Michigan resort community near Saugatuck, this cottage with unbelievable lake views is the epitome of what summers in Michigan are made of," said Kersh Ruhl, associate broker/manager of Coldwell Banker Woodland Schmidt. "Community trails to the chain ferry, and neighborhood tennis courts, or splashing in the blue waters of the lake, one is never at a loss for summer fun in Michigan's great outdoors."

This well-maintained, two-story home, built in the 1930's, has 95 feet of low bluff beach frontage accessible from the lakeside deck.
