We have a 2 bedroom rustic cottage that has undergone extensive remodeling in 2008 and a brand new luxury cottage on the Lake Michigan Beach in North Muskegon, Michigan. The beach of Lake Michigan along the western shore of Michigan is termed 'The Gold Coast,' and is truly an undiscovered pleasure. The beach is composed of the most wonderful, fresh water sand that you will find anywhere in the world. Please check out our website for more information and availability:

We have one 2 bedroom cabin that is available during the summer months, completely furnished, and has just been totally remodeled. It now has a TV with a DVD player as well. Available weekly from May 1 to October 15. NOTE: The VRBO availability calendar is not active; please see the Google availability calendar on our website - it is up to date.

Welcome to our BRAND NEW cottage, Sandpiper, that has been completely rebuilt! This new cottage re-defines luxury on the beach. Enjoy it's 'wall of glass' overlooking the beach! The cottage is entirely new, designed by an award winning interior designer from Europe. Once you experience Sandpiper, we are certain that you will agree that there is no finer cottage available on Lake Michigan beach!

There are a variety of activities located nearby, including Michigan's Adventure Amusement Park, the Frauenthal Center, (offering live performances), restaurants, golf courses, and of course, all forms of water sports and activities. We are striving to bring service on the beach to new, improved levels. Come experience the change!

Come and enjoy the sunsets!

Charming and Secluded

  • 4 of 5
The Sandpiper Cottage is very well appointed and cozy and the location is perfect. The beachfront is gorgeous and uncrowded and it never felt as though we were sharing the space with the owners or guests from the other cottages. We had GORGEOUS views of the sunset and lovely bonfires around the fire pit every night.

The photos accurately represent the rooms, the decor and the scenery. The beds are full sized beds, not queens and they do fill up nearly all the space in the bedrooms with no additional floor space for an air mattress. I would recommend the cottage for a party of 4, rather than 6, as the third sleeping area is the roll-out sofa in the living room. The living room is the area shown in the photos and the sofa bed is also the only sofa so it's not ideal for use as a third bedroom all the time. The sofa bed is best for a one-time overnight guest or small children.

We had a party of 6 adults and had no problems sharing one bathroom as it is a nice size. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils and is laid out well for several people to be working in it at once. This is really a place to spend time in the outdoor spaces and on the private beach, though, as it is very small. It rained one day during our trip and it was hard to share such intimate space with 6 adults, however 2 couples could be completely comfortable.

We are a late night group and we were very lucky the neighbors in the Evergreen Cottage never complained. I would recommend larger groups (or potentially loud groups) also reserve the Evergreen Cottage for the additional space and privacy. Loading in groceries is not super easy, but if you are wearing the right shoes the walk is not that bad. There is ample firewood on site for evening camp fires and the garbage and recycling are emptied daily, which is a nice feature as I have stayed at other properties that offered no firewood or trash service.

The one thing guests should prepare for is the lack of internet or cell phone service. Although not a rustic cabin, the location IS remote and we had no cell phone or internet service the entire stay. Some cell service could be acquired at the end of the driveway but for most internet usage we had to drive about a half a mile to the Red Rooster Tavern to try to get a signal. Anyone needing to work while on vacation should plan ahead for this.

This is a great place to relax and unplug and enjoy the beauty of a Michigan Summer.

Best Beach Cottage Ever!

  • 5 of 5
My Mom and I began our beach vacation experience at Sandpiper in July of 2010, exactly 6 months after my Dad passed away. We just needed a quiet place where we could reflect, read a book, lay on the beach, and enjoy family time together. That is exactly what we got!

Only 28 steps to the beach? Perfect! A fire pit? Perfect! A charcoal grill? Perfect! Time with our family? Priceless!

The cottage was immaculate, the view was amazing and the wagon for moving our stuff in was so helpful, and the owners: Rob & Jill Hansen: PRICELESS! :)

We came back in 2011 and can't wait to get back to "our" SANDPIPER in 2012!

Thank you so very much to the Hansens!

Cindy :)

Quiet and Charming with Fantastic Views

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely loved Sandpiper cottage!! The decor is beautiful and the floor to ceiling windows offer amazing views of the lake from the kitchen and living area.Coffee in the morning on the upper deck sitting in the
adirondack chairs was so relaxing. The beach was great and the water is so clear, unlike any we've seen coming from the northeast. Enjoyed fires at night in the fire pit, felt like camping without the tent.
Lots to do around town if the beach is not your thing. The owners were very helpful and made sure our vacation was a memorable one. We will definetly go back again.

Creating memories

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I still cannot believe our lucky discovery of this wonderful retreat on Lake Michigan several years ago. The main cottage sits back from the bluff but with perfect views of the lake. On the bluff is a platform overlooking the lake that provides panoramic views of Lake Michigan and people enjoying the beach. We loved our stay in the cottage so much that the following year we rented the adjacent cottage for our daughter and her family (girls 3 and 7) and to our delight, because of the wonderful time that they had and the subsequent conversations we have shared, we realized that we helped to create a memory for our granddaughters that cannot be duplicated. Needless to say, we will be returning this year with great anticipation. It is the perfect Up North location and our hosts, The Hansens, are charming and accommodating and care for these properties as if they were living there.

I have rented both properties over a ten year period and will feel fortunate to stay again this year. It is not only family oriented but you feel like a part of a family with the concern and care that the owners provide. As in most beachfront properties in this area, there is sand (easily swept) and there are a lot of stairs to get to the beach. There are, however, intermittent landings to pace yourself on the trek down to the amazing beach. Lodge on the Lake's fantastic beach area is more than adequate for the owners, renters and their visitors. The cottages are small inside but the clean, updated furnishings included with your accommodations are everything you need. Just bring your personal items and food and get ready to soak in all that this location has to offer, to name a few: private deck for morning coffee or starry moonlit nights; silky beach you walk for miles; sunsets that take your breath away; wondrous changing water for calm kayaking or wave breaking body surfing; swimming or walking to the sand bar for a coastline panoramic view and a community deck overlooking the Lake to read or laze the day away. I'm a repeat lodger and YOU WILL BE TOO!

“Great hide-away with incredible views and hosts to match”

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful cottage, superbly clean, with fantastic views. The hosts were exceptional and treated us like royalty. We were looking for a place to unwind and relax. The beautiful beach became the perfect place to have an afternoon nap in the warm sun. It was a perfect hide-away and very relaxing. We loved sitting by the fire pit in the evenings with a glass of wine and a bag of marshmallows. Very fun and will definitely come back!
