NEIGHBORHOOD Stevensville is a small town 6 miles from DC Cook Plant and 6 miles from downtown St. Joseph/Benton Harbor known for its pedestrian friendly downtown and famous new PGA golf courses and headquarters of Whirlpool Company. Our area is west of Red Arrow Highway and 1 mile from fast food and sit-down restaurants and 1/2 mile from Tosi's Italian Restaurant on Ridge Road and it's neighboring European bakery with wonderful daily sweet treats and desserts. It's an easy 20 minute walk to Cracker Barrel or the bakery for breakfast. We are on a short 1 block street--Michigan Avenue--in quiet residential wooded, dirt road street 3 blocks east of Lake Michigan. Our home is one of the simpler homes in an area of mega-mansions, and year-round homes and a few remaining 1 or 2 level older ...NEIGHBORHOOD Stevensville is a small town 6 miles from DC Cook Plant and 6 miles from downtown St. Joseph/Benton Harbor known for its pedestrian friendly downtown and famous new PGA golf courses and headquarters of Whirlpool Company. Our area is west of Red Arrow Highway and 1 mile from fast food and sit-down restaurants and 1/2 mile from Tosi's Italian Restaurant on Ridge Road and it's neighboring European bakery with wonderful daily sweet treats and desserts. It's an easy 20 minute walk to Cracker Barrel or the bakery for breakfast. We are on a short 1 block street--Michigan Avenue--in quiet residential wooded, dirt road street 3 blocks east of Lake Michigan. Our home is one of the simpler homes in an area of mega-mansions, and year-round homes and a few remaining 1 or 2 level older cottages. There's no on-street parking and no rowdy neighbors. Great area for biking and walking in low traffic environment near Lake. Our prices are less than half of similar rentals in Harbor Country near New Buffalo, about 12 miles away toward Indiana border. Outlet malls are 30 minutes away and Chicago is a little over an hour away. South Bend is about an hour away, as is Kalamazoo---nearest airports. Our cottages-- (1BR separate carriage house next door) and this 3 bedroom/1.5bath--Grandma Glen's Lake Haven. Guests love our 3 bedroom renovated home because it reminds them of growing up spending summers near Lake Michigan at Grandma's house in the 50s, 60s, but with modern convenience of 2016! We've renovated this cottage for year round enjoyment with quality pillowtop mattresses and furnishings, self cleaning oven, window air conditioning units, ceiling fans, very quiet dishwasher, washer/dryer on main level, original polished hardwood floors, internet and wifi, basic cable TVs/DVDs and quality linens and towels and beach towels, to make visiting a breeze to enjoy. KING BED ON MAIN FLOOR is a great feature that older guests love to avoid the 2nd floor stairs, so you can enjoy without climbing stairs. The baths and washer and dryer are all on the main level. UPSTAIRS there are two bedrooms--each with a queen bed. There's a den that has a recliner and room for an inflatable bed if you have kids who want to 'camp out' in the home. There is an office area with view of treetops and great eastern morning sun on 2nd level also. DOWNSTAIRS---Living room sofa--but is not a sleeper--, dining room, good circulation of rooms, eat-in kitchen, full bath and half bath and washer and dryer; Master bedroom with king bed and sitting area with loveseat, cable TV; OUTDOORS--large 1/2 acre back and side yard with toddlers swingset, renovated kids' playhouse, terrace with patio furniture for dining al fresco and lounging; BBQ grills, gas and Weber, older bikes, croquet, badminton, horseshoes, volleyball, board games; off-street parking for up to 3 vehicles BEACHES--private small stretch of beach, over a bluff is 3 blocks away at Chicago and Notre Dame; More accessible easy entry beach is Lincoln Township Beach 1/2 mile which has parking right at beach, more level entry, gazebo for shade, portapotties in summer and larger stretch of beach (bring watershoes, it's pebbly); Famous Silver Beach in downtown St. Joseph is just 6 miles away. Paid parking-$10 and concessions, large and wide beach right near downtown St. Joseph MI. Great for a day trip.More

It was a 15 minute drive from Silver Beach. The home had everything one might need for a week stay - washer/dryer, dishwasher, etc. The bed we slept in was very comfortable.
